Well, I guess they discovered their error and killed it. Sorry I didn't get it out here faster.
No problem, Doug. I've been spending too much money on these sales anyway.
In consideration for the death of cinema icon Doris Day, iTunes has conveniently arranged a large selection of her films available for purchase and rent. One that was particularly attractively priced ($4.99) was the HD version of Young at Heart with Doris and Frank Sinatra in a musical remake of Four Daughters. I bought it and will watch it today.
Pillow Talk is currently listed as a free title at UPHE Rewards.
Predator (1987) 4K is on sale for $4.99 at iTunes.
And now that The Hunger Games has been finally been resurrected to its 4K status, the nightmare is officially over.
Yeah, I saw that earlier today when it showed up on Cheapcharts as a newly added 4K title.
Thanks for the heads up. Vudu nicely recognized it through Movies Anywhere as UHD, too.
On iTunes, several "War" films on sale for $4.99 during this Memorial Day weekend.
Yes, I picked up Bridge On The River Kwai 4K and Empire Of The Sun for that price just now.
Also, Little Darlings (which has been in legal limbo for decades and never released on DVD or BD) is now available on iTunes for $4.99. Original 2.35:1 aspect ratio too.
I bought the theatrical cut of "Gettysburg" for $4.99 that has been released on DVD only.
If you were looking at starting a digital collection, may I point you to these titles for $4.99...
Bridge on the River Kwai 4K
From Here to Eternity
The Great Escape
Guns of Navarone
Man Who Shot Liberty Valance
Once Upon a Time in the West
Paths of Glory
My tactic for buying digital versions of titles I already own on disc is that the transfer must be in a higher resolution on digital than I have on disc before I'll consider a purchase -- so I'll only buy an HDX version if I just own the DVD or the 4K version if I own the BD or DVD. I own all the above on BD -- except for Bridge on the River Kwai, which I own on UHD, and Stalag 17, which I'm not a big fan of.
The $4.99 version of Gettysburg mentioned by @Robert Crawford has me tempted, as I only own the DVD. However, it's a film that I rarely watch (been 16 years, per my DVD Profiler database), so I'm not sure I'll pick it up. It would be a good excuse to watch the film again, though.
@Scott Merryfield There are two versions of "Gettysburg" and both are on sale at iTunes for $4.99. The Director's Cut is out on Blu-ray which I own, but I have the HD Digital too. The Theatrical Cut is only available on DVD which is why I bought the HD Digital today. My preferred version to watch is the Director's Cut, but it's been years since I last watched the Theatrical Cut which I'm going to change between now and July 4th.
@Robert Crawford , I see that the Director's Cut is about 17 minutes longer. Does that extra time make the film more interesting, or make it drag? I have never seen the DC, as I thought the Theatrical version already seemed too long at it's 4.25 hour running time. Sometimes a longer cut actually makes the film seem shorter and better paced, while other times it just makes a long film feel even longer.
Own them all after finally buying Stalag 17 today. My favorite of them all!
what What WHAT????
The first 2 titles on my wish list were Stalag 17 and The African Queen (which is only available for rent) so I jumped on Stalag.
My only other purchase was Murders at the Rue Morgue - I'm a sucker for those classic horror films and that one has avoided me all these years.
I have each of those titles on Blu-ray or 4K/UHD disc, but I also have every one of them digitally too either on Vudu or iTunes as they[re among my favorite films of all-time so I can watch them while lying in bed or without leaving my sitting position. Because of my insomnia, I do a lot of late night/early morning movie watching.
