Good lord. I know the price will come down somewhat, but it still isn't unusual to see the first film going for around $35. Mind you, all three films on Blu are around $10 together. So odd that WB is pricing these so high. I'm in the minority that likes all three films and even I won't pay that much for them.

Aw jeez, how many times am I gonna buy these movies? Well.... I guess at least one more time. Those covers in the set are gorgeous (not as impressed by the stand-alones... or maybe the rabbit-key-sentinel covers are under those slipcases...?*).
