The 3-D one though?
Some new reviews of this week's new releases!
The Three Faces of Eve
And, as Matt noted above, Girl Most Likely
That amazon match on the Hobbit is interesting.Im pretty sure the BB price is for the Steelbook which is only the 3d version and not 5 discs.Edit: nope nevermind
Ok I retake it back.BB is selling the non steelbook with 5 discs here. $60 This is the version Amazon is selling for $30http://www.bestbuy.com/site/the-hobbit-an-unexpected-journey-extended-edition-blu-ray-3d/21760142.p?id=2651538&skuId=21760142&st=categoryid$cat02015&lp=10&cp=2The steel book which is siad to only include the 3D and not 2D is here.$30http://www.bestbuy.com/site/hobbit-an-unexpected-journey-blu-ray-3d/2450018.p?id=2762149&skuId=2450018&st=categoryid$cat02015&lp=11&cp=2
Thanks, Mike. It is greatly appreciated.
And now we've got a review of this week's new release of The Right Stuff!
I am assuming that once all three Hobbit movies have come and gone, there'll be a complete set that will be on sale sometimes for around that same price (as the LOTR set has).
That's my strategy.
I'll buy the initial Hobbit releases and then splurge on the box EE full set when that is released and I find some big mega-sale (just like with the LOTR EE Blu set).
[PESSIMISM]Speaking of The Hobbit, I know it wasn't in Target's ad but I thought they might still stock it but it wasn't available at the Target near me. Granted, it's the second release of the movie but when a major retailer doesn't stock the special edition of a movie that made a mountain of money and that also has a sequel coming out soon, you know Blu-ray/DVD sales are taking a big dive.[/PESSIMISM]
Thats reading in a bit far, target is notorious for not carrying major releases in store and sometimes online.Although if you want to go further on your line, BB only has the 5 disc Hobbit on .com and I saw no versions of the Hobbit in Costco today.
Interesting. I thought for sure that Target would at least carry the 2-D version of The Hobbit EE (although I would have then wondered why it wasn't inc;uded in the Sunday flyer). Guess not.
Yup. Just a hunch
My results of looking for the Hobbit Extended 3D blu ray:
Costco: 2D or 3D not available
Target: 2D or 3D not available
Frys: 2D only available $35.
Wal Mart: Both available, but 3D was $40.
Best Buy, 2D and 3D Steelbook available. Got the Best Buy 3D steelbook, since it was 'only' $30.
Opened it up and discovered that it doesn't include the 2D version.
Pretty damn sad state of affairs for brick and mortar.
Jeff I mentioned a few posts back that the BB steel will be just the 3D version and that Amazon is selling the full 5 disc version for the same price as that steel at BB.Plus it seemed pretty easy to see to me bylooking at the steel that it doesnt include the 2D version.
The steelbook has a sticker on the front that says there's 3 discs but the detailed breakdown on the back says that there's 4 discs and specifies that there's a 2-D version. Since they listed it, Warners owes people a copy of the 2-D disc (in my opinion). It's not the consumers' fault that they can't manage their product correctly.
I'm looking at the back right now and it does not state a 2d version is included. Disc 1 and 2 bluray 3DDiscs 3 and 4 the appendices special features
^ I looked up a picture of it online and you're absolutely correct. Man, I would have bet the house that when I looked at it in the store yesterday, it said that disc 3 was the 2-D Blu-ray.
Sure, but 1)I didn't see your posts until after I had already opened it, and 2) having no prior knowledge of the issue, I had no reason to really believe that the 2D wasn't included, so I didn't really inspect the case details to determine that.
Mind you, I'm ok with only having the 3D version, as I would always choose this option when watching the movie, but it still seems pretty shitty that they omit the 2D discs.
I'm returning the steel version back to BB and reordered the 5 disc from Amazon. Would rather have the 2D version than the steel book. Thanks guys for pointing out the difference.
I don't think this has been mentioned yet, but there's a really good 50% off code for Fox Connect. I pre-ordered both The Ghost and Mrs. Muir and Desk Set for a total of $15.98 (both blu and free shipping). Code is FLASH and it seems to still work this morning. One use per account.
Thanks to the OP's in other threads who mentioned this earlier in the week.
