    Thanks for the time you invest in posting the WRU Mike! Running Man and The Phantom are on the list for sure; debating on either A Serious Man or Couples Retreat.

    I'll rent A Serious Man since I didn't catch it in theaters (and it actually played near me). That's about it though.

    Thanks for the prices, guys!

    BB.com also has Casablanca (BD, 1 disc) for $14.99, along with other classic titles like The Graduate, Butch Cassidy and Raging Bull. I don't recall ever seeing Casablanca included in any kind of sale...

    The Running Man, on Blu, for me, and thats it.

    I just HAD to click on that Amazon link for Boobs: An American Obsession. Oh yea, but i only wanna see em in HD. No Blu, no sale! :P

    Interesting that Mike added that title to the Round Up? Must of been on his radar.

    That's been the price for Casablanca at Amazon (and Warner's own online store too) for about a week now. The others have also seen rock bottom prices (below $10 each) for quite some time as well -- that's how I bought The Graduate and Raging Bull some time ago myself.

    Wow, this thread is dead slow this week. Even without that high profile doc, BOOBS...id figure The Round Up would have more than 8 or 9 posts in its 1500 views! You know, from all that increased traffic on the forum.

    You never know what is going to pop up at Costco. Today I browsed the movie section to find they were selling Bewitched season boxes for $12.99 each. They had all of them except season 1 and only the colorized version of season 2. I hadn't yet purchased the final three seasons so I jumped on 'em!

    Thanks as usual Mike & Patrick for the WRU.

    I'd like to get Couples' Retreat and The Time Traveler's Wife, both on BD, but I'm hesitating because of the pricing (especially on TTTW). I've been looking for coupons for either one and haven't been successful. I might be holding off a couple of weeks on these and hope / wait for a price drop.


    I've got A Serious Man in my Netflix Queue and rented Ice Castles from Redbox today.


    For anyone that's interested in picking-up Ice Castles on DVD, Sony Pictures has a $5.00 off coupon:

    GET $5 OFF
    WHEN YOU BUY THE ALL NEW REMAKE ON DVD!
    HURRY, OFFER EXPIRES MARCH 16TH.

    Link: http://www.sonypictures.com/homevideo/specialoffers/

    Does anyone know of any coupons for Couples' Retreat and / or The Time Traveler's Wife on BD?

    Jeff:

    My wife is anxious to see The Time Traveler's Wife. My strategy is to hold her off as long as possible. I figure since the film isn't supposed to be all that good (say the critics) it will be showing up in "used" bins pretty darn quick. That's where I'll be looking for it.

    And, if that doesn't work, I'll buy a used DVD from my local rental shop when they finally hit there.

    Good strategy Mike. I'm not having any problems holding my wife off - we saw it in theaters and she thought it was only ok. My problem is my 3 teen daughters - the oldest of which also saw it in theaters and is dying to see it again. And this has caused further excitement in her sisters. I'm not sure how long I can hold them off.

    I'm sure it's already known but the Ice Castles is a remake not the original with Robbie Benson.
    Also The Phamtom and Running Man on blu is $11.99 at amazon and $10 at some walmarts.
