Confirmed. I was unable to print it last night or this morning, but it just now printed without incident.

My local Best Buy had Manchurian Candidate in Blu for $9.99, so I definitely picked it up. (Didn't think that one was coming till May, but I'm not complaining). However they didn't have any of the four titles pictured in today's circular, so go figure.

Printed out my Alice coupon tonight. Getting a Disney animated title on Blu-Ray for only ten bucks is a tremendous deal (I was expecting the usual $29.99 price at BB).

Same here and I also picked up the original Thomas Crown Affair too. Apparently Best Buy broke their release date for the exclusives. I believe Best Buy was originally going to release The Manchurian Candidate in May but moved it to Feburary 1st. Grain is intact on both but it seems the transfer comes from the same source as the recent DVD releases for both which means there is still some print damage but its not a problem in my opinion. Both have AVC transfers at pretty high bitrates, and both have DTS HD master audio, 5.1 for The Manchurian Candidate and 1.0 mono for The Thomas Crown Affair, however there is not an option for the original mono for The Manchurian Candidate. Really good releases in my opinion.

Mike outlasted another store! What retailer will be next to fall?


The Best Buy exclusive prices looks pretty good, I will have to swing by and see what's available. And the price on Monsters looks great as well... worth a blind buy?


Thanks for your hard work and perseverance through your cold, we all love the results!

The prices on those were now $12.99 this morning.

Amazon currently lists Expendables for $14.99, Mr. Fox for $12.99, and the 2-disc Apocalypse Now not at all.

Bummer, I checked the Best Buy website yesterday and they were $9.99. I was going to drop by Best Buy today, but I guess I missed out! Well I noticed Amazon has price-matched the $12.99. Maybe the $9.99 yesterday was a mistake on the website?

I also picked up Manchurian Candidate as well as Dead Man Walking at BB Sunday morning when I picked up Almost Famous. Dead Man Walking looked pretty solid PQ-wise as well. And for ten bucks each for the MGM titles, you really can't go wrong. I was hoping that Out of Sight may have been put out early, but alas another trip is in store to BB Tuesday morning.

It's kind of unclear -- are you supposed to enter the UPC code from one of the other movies, or the DMR code?

Hmmm... Apparently, quite a few of those new BB BD exclusives are priced at $9.99 (according to their site).


Guess I'll probably go pick up the AiW BD Combo (w/ DMR coupon) + the Dead Man Walking BD then.


Was going to cancel my Amazon preorder of the BDs for Pleasantville and You've Got Mail (and just get them later), but was too late at it. Oh well...

Sad news. My local Best Buy would not accept the Disney Coupon off of the $19.99 sale price. I am going to try another Best Buy, as I know management practices differ. Has anyone else had this happen?

Hmmm... Did you need to get the BB store to do a pricematch against their web site for that $19.99 price? BB seems to have some sort of policy to not allow use of coupons when doing a pricematch even if it's just a match against their own website (or at least that seems to be how many BB employees tend to interpret that).


OR did you do an in-store pickup for an online order perhaps?


I've never had a problem using coupons at BB as long as I didn't need to do any kind of pricematch *nor* do an in-store pickup for an online order.

Eventhough it doesn't look like you should, I entered the UPC code and got the coupon.

That's exactly right! My problem was that I was entering the wrong code. I'm afraid their site is right confusing!!

I didn't have any problem...clerk rang it up and I handed the coupon. Only saw a few Alice Blurays in the store --- no big display at all. That was kind of weird for a Disney title. Zero Heavy Metal Blurays in the store too.
