    Thanks Mike. $7.99 for Big Trouble in Little China? If I didn't already have it I would be all over it. Those Best Buy 3D exclusive titles get released everywhere on 8/30 although Best Buy's current price is cheaper than Amazon's pre-order price so I don't know why you would want to wait....


    I will be picking up the Spy Kids movies at Best Buy since I just noticed the $7.99 price...

    I pre-ordered Spy Kids from BB. Don't have much interest in the sequels though.

    I'll be getting Spy Kids from BB. I don't have any interest in the sequels either. Also will get the Rio blu ray combo pack (not the 3D). Going to stop by Applebee's & pick up a children's menu which has a $3 off coupon on Rio. Thanks fpr the Roundup. Apparently the 2 local Applebees stores here are franchise stores and don't have the kids menu with the coupon yet. They're still promoting YOGI BEAR. Well, no coupon for me. Thanks for nothing, Applebees.

    I haven't seen the Gamera episodes of Mystery Science Theater 3000 in 15 or more years so I may spring for that one this week rather than wait for a sale. Also, I'll pick up Eastbound & Down at some point. Thanks for the prices! :)

    Probably nothing for me this week -- nothing new anyway -- although I briefly considered snapping up the Spy Kids BD last night from BB since they had those out early in their $7.99 bin.


    For those who still haven't picked up Amelie, Bridget Jone's or Chocolat on BD just yet, you might want to check out coupons.com for a $3 MFR coupon, especially if you still plan to head out to BB later today. Today's the last day to use the BB $5 coupon, and they still have these titles for $14.99 each, so you could probably stack the 2 coupons to get one of them for ~$7+tax.


    And thanks for another WRU, Mike.

    I have all the Conan movies in my Netflix queue somewhere, so no need for me to buy them. The BN Criterion sale is running through tomorrow (8.1) so I stopped in this morning and snagged what looked to be the last copies of Broadcast News and Times of Harvey Milk. Then I ran to Costco and found Stardust BD for 8.99. I'm done for the week since nothing else is grabbing my attention.

    I picked up the Spy Kids films at Best Buy. They are only the movies. The ones at Amazon have digital copies as well. I'm not sure who has the "exclusive". Regardless saving $7 was more important than the digital copy...
