Amazon has dropped the bomb! Huge markdowns on a ton of Blus. Not sure how Black Friday can get any better, most likely THIS IS the Black Friday prices....

Here's the sale that'll break my bank...

Titles of note:

Watchmen $8
Hangover $10
Fight Club $10
LoTR individual movies $8 each!
Get him to the greek $10

There's a ton more, post some titles of note here on this thread if you want, I think I'll be shopping now! :)

Don't get too starry eyed, he puts his HDMI cables in one end at a time just like the rest of us =)


But yeah, I bought more Blus this morning than the last year combined.  Still a ways to go to making them affordable but under $10 for some good disks gets a thumbs up from me.

I dunno.

I think I read a story once where Adam achieved the rare" both-ends-of-the-cable plugged-in-at-the-same-time" feat.

Might've been featured on the cover of Popular Science...  Can't exactly remember.

I just about fell out of my chair on this on Sam.  Too funny.  I like to save money on Blu-rays just as much as the next guy Chris. Posted Image

LMAO I hoped you'd get a kick outta that Adam =)


BTW, if you guys haven't already taken advantage of Amazon Mom yet, now is the time to do so.  Perfect time to get your 3 months of prime whether you really are going to be purchasing Mommy stuff in the future or not.

I just signed up now, hoping like hell they have a killer deal on the 360 as rumored, supposedly a $60 credit which would suit me just fine.

Glad I waited on Back To The Future.


Contemplating picking up all 3 LOTR Blu-rays for $8 each

despite the fact I prefer the longer versions coming soon.

B&N online has the better deal (after coupon) for the BTTF BD set at the moment -- and you can probably save a bit more using some sort of discount/cashback portal (like the Discover Card's).

I may spring for that deal myself although I'm wondering what Amazon's lightning deal will be for it come Monday.

Got the Matrix box for $40.99. Lowest price yet. (Ok, WalMart has it for one dollar less, and WBShop had it for $30+shipping briefly, but still, good!)


Thinking about the Bourne box (not on sale but still a good price), but I think those films are on sale often enough not to have to buy it now.

I couldn't hold back, Ron.  $24 for those three films?!?  I had decided to wait for the EEs, too.  But I figured this deal was too good to pass up.  By the time the EEs are out on Blu and priced low enough for me, I figure I'll have gotten plenty of use out of these three (for just $24!).

Oh.  And I ordered them yesterday morning @ 10:30 and they were waiting for me when I got home today!  Posted Image

Seems like everyone is having this dilemma! I REALLY hated the BS they pulled by not coming out with the EE (with branching theatrical) right away but...GRRR! $24?!? How could I not? Damn you New Line Cinema!

I just pulled the plug and bought 'em.


How could you pass up all three Lord of the Rings Blu-rays for
under $25?  I mean....really.


If I didn't buy them I would be kicking myself.  Now I don't have

to feel so inclined to rush out and buy the extended versions on

day one and can wait till Black Friday 2011 to get a great deal

on those.


On Monday I will purchase Back To The Future.  I had to regrettably

cross that off my list this year because I was buying too many

other things.  Right now it's about $35 but I am hoping on Monday

during the lightning round it will come down to $25.  That would be

a sweet deal.

Personally, I'm hoping for better than $25.  I can already get the set from the B&N site right now for net cost of ~$25+tax (w/ the 30%-off coupon + 10% Discover Card cashback). Posted Image

Wow!  I managed to resist the theatrical LOTRs but if that $17 Matrix collection reappears I'll cave.

I'll console myself that the $40 I spent on the Matrix included shipping, whereas the Overstock doesn't... But still that's an amazing price. That's less than what Overstock is charging for the individual first Matrix film.

For anyone still near City Hall area in downtown Manhattan, J&R apparently started their own in-store BF sale a little early -- and they actually beat some of these online prices.

I was actually tempted to pick up Death at the Funeral on BD for ~$13 while there -- might've done so if it was a combo pack w/ DVD.
