No worries. I've got a couple of U&S coupons to use and this is definitely a title in which I am interested.
I hope to get to a BB Tuesday or Wednesday night to check things out.

Got my answer tonight...but didn't get my movie.
So...I ordered from Amazon which has it listed for $15.99. Whatever. I used my unused U&S coupons on a couple of other things.

I should have snapped a shot of the entire sale rack. It was practically empty.
Gee...that's a complete shock cuz BB has always been super good about keeping their shelves stocked.
I hope the sarcasm was evident in the above statement. If not, I'll try to work on that for next time...

Yeah, they love to whine about how sales are decreasing, but it's pretty hard to buy when there's nothing on the shelves to begin with. Seems rather counter-intuitive to me to lease real estate for the purpose of retail sales, then have nothing in that space but empty shelves.

Die Hard: 25th Anniversary Collection is on sale at Fry's electronics for $24.99. It is backordered on Frys.com but they will accept the order and honor the price.

Did anyone notice that Echo Bridge apparently released a batch of BB exlcusive BDs this past week, which BB priced at $5.99? I picked up Grifters and was tempted to pick up Music of the Heart as well, but haven't seen any comments on quality of the latter (and saw that it's missing the original 5.1 track according to its backcover). Watched Grifters last night and agree w/ a couple comments on another site that it's enough of an upgrade for the ~$6 price, especially since it's not likely to get any better release for the forseeable future. _Man_

Be aware that Echo Bridge frequently (always?) crops 2.35 movies to 1.78. That's not an issue for the 1.85-shot The Grifters but just a general heads up.
