Next week is a huge Video Game release week, if I remember right it's also big on Blus too, correct?

To add even further to that, there is an extensive thread on AVS about how this disc has a mastering error, where the brightness drops significantly around the 40 minute mark, and remains that way for the rest of the movie.  I don't think the error was ever acknowledged by Paramount.

Posted Image  "Big" is a pretty subjective adjective, Sam!


I just took a look at next week's list.  Quantity-wise...things look pretty normal.  But there is one particular title which will be grabbing an awful lot of interest.  Nothing else remarkable, however.    You got something in particular in mind that you're looking for?!?





There's Jessie the yodeling cowgirl. Bullseye, he's Woody's horse. Pete the old prospector. And, Woody, the man himself.Of course, it's time for Woody's RoundUp. He's the very best! He's the rootinest, tootinest cowboy in the wild, wild west!

Not really, I hardly buy anything over $10 any more. But I'm getting Jaws. I don't buy new release games much either and I think I have 3 preordered for next week... Just seemed like a lot hitting at once.

Thanks, Mike! I wasn't even expecting them to send Spaceballs. I thought I was going to have a full day to begin watching season six of Dexter which comes out next week. Instead, I only got five episodes watched.

Back to the basement with you!  If you pass Cameron on the way, go ahead and give him a high-five!  Posted Image  But keep moving!

Getting Adventures In Babysitting with U&S. Also Lorax 3D. Will BB allow a Target pricematch & U&S which'll knock Lorax3D down to $19.99? Thanks as always for the roundup.

Tried this during a previous U&S promotion, and BB's computer wouldn't allow it. The person at customer service did the PM for me, which knocked $3 off the blu-ray's price, but when they applied the U&S coupon, it only shaved an extra $2 off, effectively making the total savings $5, which you'd get just using the coupon.

Thanks, Mike for the roundup this week. I'll be getting Adventures in Babysitting for my wife. She has a birthday coming and this will make a good "smaller present" for her. And thanks to Roland, I jumped all over the $15 3d titles at Best Buy even though I don't have a 3D TV. I picked up Hugo, TinTin, Kung Fu Panda and Ice Age 3. For a little more than the 2d versions, or in some cases a little less, I can enjoy the movies now and be prepared for the future in case I ever get a 3D television. :)

Is the Transformers 3 mastering error just on the 3D disc? I don't remember noticing that on the 2D disc. FWIW, I liked the movie. It was probably the best of the three.

I wanted to like those films so bad...well, because of "giant battling robots!"


But I got completely confused because I couldn't tell the giant battling robots apart or figure out which ones were good and which ones were bad.


I could figure out Megan Fox...and that was about it.  And it was nearly enough.

The moral of the story is:  I guess I'm too old for giant battling robots but not too old for Megan Fox.  Well, I'm sure I'm too old for Megan Fox...but you know what I mean...

Assume you are talking about Clue? No, but like Romy & Michele it has an 8 digit SKU on teh BBY website which usually indicates it's an on-line only title. In-store Bluray titles almost always have a 7 digit SKU.

The Best Buy in my area didn't have Clue in stock. It's probably the first time in a year that I looked for a smaller catalog title in-store and it just reinforced why I shouldn't bother to use anything other than Amazon.
