For a "first round" I mostly stuck to things in the "Last Chance" section (most of which didn't change in price for this sale) and added a couple of titles from the sale proper - still hit ~$80 even after taking a couple of things out (titles I'm on-the-fence with and need to watch them somewhere first just in case).

I'll wait a couple of days to see if I still have any money burning a hole in my pocket (I really took advantage of the recent B2G1 sale at Target and am smarting from that one a bit) before putting together a possible 2nd order.

A suggestion to my friends pick up The Holly and The Ivy on sale and GREAT viewing for Christmas In July!

I got to $49.45 in my cart, and couldn’t find another title…hah, oh well. Perhaps I’ll try again later
I had a similar situation, so I went to the "While Supplies Last" section and found a title to put me over the "free shipping" threshold.

I don't need to go that route myself, but thanks for the reminder nonetheless. I quickly checked thru that section, and the IMO most notable title there is Fritz Lang's The Woman in the Window (on the last page) for just $7.99.

IF you enjoy a little noir and don't already have that, it's definitely a worthwhile choice, especially at that price whether you could use the bump to get free shipping or not. Yeah, the PQ on this one ain't exactly great, but at that price, it's certainly plenty passable for this classic... and not like we'd likely ever get a better version on disc...

Maybe Scarlet Street on blu-ray for $9.99 might be an even better choice.

Coming September 13th!

The Extreme Adventures of Super Dave (2000)
• NEW Audio Commentary by Director Peter MacDonald, Moderated by Historian/Filmmaker Daniel Kremer
• Theatrical Trailer
• Optional English Subtitles

Color 91 Minutes 1.85:1 Rated PG
Break out the body-casts! The world’s most painfully hilarious stuntman is back with a powder-keg of laughs! Super Dave Osborne (Bob Einstein, TV’s Curb Your Enthusiasm) gives a crash course in comedy in this wacky adventure of daredevil antics, whiplash humor and crash-test love that’ll break every funny bone in your body! Things couldn’t get much worse for Super Dave. After a near-fatal accident he discovers that he’s been bankrupted by his swindling manager and foreclosed on by the bank. Devastated and ready to hang up his crash helmet, Super Dave finds strength in a klutzy-but-cute single mom (Gia Carides, Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me) and her ailing young son, Timmy. And when he learns that Timmy needs an expensive heart operation, Super Dave shuns retirement to raise the money. Even if it means facing off against his arch enemy, Gil (Dan Hedaya, The Crew), a slimy sports promoter, to once again prove that he’s not only the most outrageous daredevil…he’s also the most accident-prone! Directed by Peter MacDonald (Rambo III, Mo’ Money) and featuring cameos by music legend Ray Charles, NFL giant John Elway, boxing great Evander Holyfield and ring announcer extraordinaire Michael Buffer.

I don’t think it would be. Scarlet Street is better known but to me seems mean-spirited by comparison. Woman in the Window is a lot of fun and one of the most suspenseful movies I’ve ever seen. I seriously considered turning off the disc halfway through the second time I watched it, even though I already knew how the movie ended.

That is a really interesting take that you have on both films. You have motivated me to go back and watch both films back to back.

One of my all-time favorite films that I first watched in a movie theater as a young boy. There is little doubt that I'll purchase this 4K disc, but after buying it for the second time on Blu-ray just last year from Kino, it kind of pisses me off. I guess I'll just swallow hard as I want to hear Paul Scofield yell out "Labiche" one more time, but in 4K/Dolby Vision.;)

I’m on for this too. I was lucky enough to see a theater screening of this film this last fall.

This is a fantastic choice for a 4K release. It has such a realistic feel to me. Great movie.
