Mike, I'm sorry you are having such a time of it and I hope they figure out what's going on soon and get you back to feeling well. As far as I know, Amazon doesn't take the Disney coupons.

If that's the only reason, Mike, I think we can work it out.  But there are prolly...um...other...reasons too.  I'm sure your misses is kind of attached to you and I haven't been able to shake my mister for seven years.  Posted Image  (Not that we should want to get rid of either one of them, for the record...)


I just checked the Disney Movie Rewards site.  There is a Lady and the Tramp upgrade coupon listed: $8 off the 3 disc combo pack or $5 off the 2 disc combo pack.  I haven't tried to put the old UPC in and print the coupon, but it is there.  I haven't had a chance to figure out who has the best deal and all that jazz yet, though.

Nice, thanks Tony! Anyone know if the $10 upgrade coupon was in the original DVD, or only in the Blu-Ray? It strikes me that I have a friend who got the DVD but doesn't have a BD player. . .

I jumped on the Amazon deal a couple months back, which put the price at 17.99. I'm assuming most places will have the two-disc for 24.99, so even in best case scenario where the $8 coupon gets used on the two-disc, the price would be very close. Plus I don't have to deal with Toys R Us. :D

I just received (but have yet to watch) what is purported to be an excellent Queen documentary Days of Our Lives.  My brother has seen parts of it and loved it.  I pre-ordered the DVD at got it for $10.99, but it's jumped up to $14.99.  The BD is priced at $16.99.  CAVEAT EMPTOR:  The DVD runs 165 mins, but the BD version has extended footage and runs 221 mins.!  I have seen NOTHING as to why the difference in running times occurs, and from the reviews on Amazon the extra footage is not HD...


Here's the link:Amazon.com: Queen: Days Of Our Lives: Queen, Matt O'Casey: Movies & TV

Awesome, I hadn't heard about that. The listing says it's from Eagle Rock Entertainment, which does the wonderful "Classic Albums" series of album docs (they did one on A Night at the Opera).

Get well soon, Mike!


And thanks for this WRU, Adam!


Lots of excellent classic/catalog titles this week, but will probably wait for better prices on some of them.


RE: English Patient and some other recent Lionsgate BD releases of Miramax titles, Costco is apparently carrying them for $8.99 each.  My wife just picked up The Piano for that price (plus the 3 Hitchcock BDs for $9.99 each).  Since I'm a B&N member and their site currently has English Patient and Frida at $9.99 each, I'm just gonna use some 20%-off coupons (and my Discover Card 10% cashback) w/ B&N instead.  Might order Cold Mountain from Amazon at their current price of $7.99.  Already got Shakespeare In Love as a UK import some time back.


Also, my Amazon preorder of Adaptation arrived earlier this week.  Can't wait to watch this one for the first time... Posted Image


Cheers!

Hey Mike, does that news I saw somewhere else mean you are getting better?

A quick update, Tony.


First...I'm home.  That's great news for me after being in the hospital since last Friday.


But, secondly, they still don't know what's wrong with me.  The results of the tests I took need to "percolate".  They've had 48 hours in their petri dishes or culture dishes to grow...but, so far, no results.  So, I have to begin a "best guess" regimen of a 4th different antibiotic in order to try and get rid of whatever kind of infection I've got in my lungs.

But...it's great to be home.

I just pulled the trigger tonight with Amazon on The Magnificent Ambersons as it dropped, today, to $9.99!


The order also includes the 2-disc blu combo pack of Lady & the Tramp, the blu release of the Tarantino CSI episode from a few years ago (which also dropped today (from a $19.99 pre-order to $15.99) and...Wings!


Big order.  But I've been sick and deserve the treat!  Posted Image

Still trying to more specifically diagnose my pneumonia/bronchitis problem which I've had since the end of December and they are finding some strange things indeed.

Sounds like you're right where you should be, then. Sometimes these things happen for a reason/ A few years back my dad got really winded and sick feeling after walking up a big hill. The office he was going to called an ambulance as a precaution, and he ended up getting emergency heart surgery that saved his life. I'm grateful every day that that office was "over"cautious. While trying to get a good night's sleep in any hospital sucks and the food's generally terrible, now that you're under the watchful eye of medical professionals, they can figure out what's wrong so you don't have to keep living with it. Get well soon! Thanks for checking in and keeping us all updated. Thanks for covering in the meantime, Adam! Looks like only To Kill a Mockingbird for me this week.

Is the only difference between the 3-disc and 2-disc Lady and the Tramp the addition of the digital copy?

I believe so. Disney only sent the 2-disc for review.

Mike, I'm glad you're home and I hope the doctors figure out soon what's wrong. Get well soon. I'm praying for you.

Yeah...I think that Adam is angling for my gig!  Posted Image  He needs something else to do around here!  Posted Image


I can't thank everyone enough for all the prayers and well wishes this week.  They have buoyed my spirits...for sure.
