    There's a joke there just waiting to get made.


    I was tempted by the High Fidelity and Romy and Michele at Costco, but couldn't justify it knowing the price would inevitably drop to the $10 range. I can wait for that to happen. I would have done the U&S at Best Buy, but there weren't any copies in-store.

    Costco also had a number of WB Blu-ray DigiBooks for $10.99.

    Mutiny on the Bounty (1935)
    Malcolm X
    King Kong (1933)
    Dirty Harry
    A Star is Born
    Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

    Man, I would love to find those two somewhere in that price range. I've already got Dirty Harry...but I might even spring for the rest at that price depending upon my mood at the time.

    I've got no Costco in my area...but maybe this group will show up in other places at this pricepoint?!?

    Didn't see those WB titles at my Costco (Van Nuys CA) but they had a different assortment for 8.99, that had stuff like Unforgiven, all single disc titles.

    You guys should be wearing red carnations when you go shopping so you'd know if you run into each other...or maybe some HTF bling.

    Oooh. I forgot about Cuckoo's Nest being in the group.

    Darn it! We need a Costco to move into this area. We just got a Trader Joe's...

    Our Costco has an incredibly pathetic BD supply the last couple months. That's bigger than everything they have, what is in that pic. I know around November it will expand greatly for xmas shopping but it used to be worth the membership to get discs there, but not lately. I need to speak to the boss next time I'm there.

    For those interested -- next week's releases
    The Royal Tenenbaums Criterion Bluray $19.99 -- according to Best Buy leaked prerelease Ad
    Sadly, by Tuesday the Upgrade and Save is over, BN 50% is already over, but this is a unique Criterion to be 1/2 off on release day --
    for that matter just a unique release period.

    I'm just shocked that my wife allowed me to buy all these digibooks.
    Also surprised to have seen them at for such a great price.
    its seems so random at Costco, one only had four of these and the other much further away had all of them.
    I also saw theAmerica Lost and Found the BBS story, the Criterion that has Easy Rider and a handfull of other movies for about $62

    No, the moral of the story is that your screen was too small for the giant battling robots! ;)
    Jeff, thanks for the info on the mastering error.
    It's time to buy Kong -- we just got back from NYC and my son is OBSESSED with the Empire State Building. The blu is still $26 at Amazon, but fortunately I need to hit Costco this weekend. Mine usually has a decent BD selection.

    Hmmm... Maybe that's what my upcoming RZ $5 GC will be good for, especially since B&N's been killing most coupon usages to get better deals during their Criterion sales. Not sure though if I'll have the GC in time for this....

    Yes it is. My post should have said -- by the time Tenenbaums is released the U&S will be over. I'll edit the post and clean up the terrible typos (it was the middle of the night when I posted)
