    I paused the disc a couple of times last night and had a clean screen. I was more annoyed by the forced trailers when I loaded the disc.

    So here's the deal I got on Mud at Best Buy this afternoon. Unfortunately, I realized it could have been a bit better...but I forgot.

    The shelf price was $17.99. I got $5 off with their Upgrade & Save program and then used the $3 coupon from coupons.com. $9.99!

    I forgot I could have pricematched the Target advertised price of $16.99 which would have dropped the price another dollar to $8.99.

    Since my sales clerk was new, she had to have a manager come over to show her how to accept the manufacturer's coupon. He was glad to accept it along with the Upgrade and Save coupon.

    Take Shelter is still woefully underseen and underappreciated Michael. Superb storytelling, superbly realized...

    No, you got the best deal (the one I plan to do). Best Buy will not price match AND "Upgrade and Save."

    Thanks, Neal. I got a separate confirmation over in this week's RoundUp.

    Don't wait. I got the last copy of Mud in my local BB today. And it wasn't in the new releases endcap...it was tucked away all by itself in the drama section.

    I confirm that. Still a good deal. I think I got the last copy too, at least in the new release rack.

    You beat me to that one, Mike. :)

    Anyone want to sing something from the Bay City Rollers? It's just north of Saginaw. ;)

    At least something did...ha.

    Amazon sent me a refund as the package became "lost and undeliverable"...

    Apparently somebody has Mapquest skills and realizes how far apart the cities are.

    I finally got around to viewing this BD today. A very good film indeed. Loved the coming of age stuff and the coming end for one way of life. The performances were excellent and the writing was spot on. Another film I have to revisit with the audio commentary. I was never a fan of Reese Witherspoon so this was one of the rare films I enjoyed her in.
