I know this week will be expensive for me. So I'm glad that season 2 of "V" won't have a steelbook case or any sort of exclusive. I'll pick it up at a lower price later. This week is a whole week ad.

Thanks John.


Don't see anything in there that I either don't already have or don't really care about, but I'll check out the store anyway. -kd5-

I'll probably check the store for some unadvertised bargains.. if nothing else, I'll be getting the TEEN WOLF 1 & 2 double feature, which I've seen for that price in the past but always passed on it.

Will be getting Bad Teacher: Unrated at some point but not for $16.99

I haven't seen the ad, but video games, especially popular ones, are not usually on sale their first week. But if you pre-order it at BB, you get the Robin DLC pack.

Pirates has a $5 off the 5 disc combo at Disney Rewards, must be a member of Disney Rewards. It's free. So it basically makes the Best Buy 6 disc a buck cheaper than the 2 disc. Oh and I want that Garbage Pail Kids movie for $5. Been waiting to get that movie, it's hard to find for a decent price. The Original 7ven album sounds funky. definate getting that

P.S. I got two copies of that Teen Wolf double feature at Walmart for $5 awhile back. Not a great deal on that. The reason I got two, the first copy I got the Teen Wolf side was messed up with some odd blemish on the disc that was uncleanable.

That one was actually a gift with purchase of the Cars 2 video game and is a true DVD-sized SteelBook. I think the promo was back in the summer.

Thanks.

The Cars 2 movie pre-order is a Cars 2 Blu-ray sized metal case and IS NOT a SteelBook. You can pick it up now and it is $7.50 deposit towards the movie (Blu-ray or Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack). Some folks have just paid the $7.50 for the case if they do not want to buy the movie at Best Buy when it comes out.

Thanks OP! Nothing for me.

Hopefully they'll be some Horror films on the cheap as usual this time of year.

I really like that Willy Wonka 40th Anniversary set. I just don't like what they're asking for it so I will wait.

What's on that set that is different from the others?

Something popped in my head.

Looked, nope. Online only, the documentary - "More Brains! A Return To The Living Dead".

$14.99, next Tuesday.

Having just come from Best Buy, I must say this is absolutely the lamest Halloween "sale" they have ever (not) had. I asked a passing employee if that was the extent of their DVD sale for Halloween this year and he said that that's all they got in. What a joke sale (all the way around) this week, at least as far as I am concerned. -kd5-

I don't care if the Halloween sale is small. They just better have Garbage Pail Kids. If not, they better let me pay for it and have it shipped. Or I'll just buy a $25 gift card and pick up two things they don't have in store then.

Anyone know what is on the BB POTC bonus disc?

I am also very interested in details of the POTC best buy bonus disc (including running times if possible). :)

I am also very interested in details of the POTC best buy bonus disc (including running times if possible). :)

According to the face of the disc, about 20 minutes worth of featurettes:

Organizing A Mutiny (5:13)
Two Jacks (3:52)
Sculpting Mermaids (5:09)
Johnny and Judi (2:59)
The Wild Boar (3:01)

Most likely. It's got a fair amount of features with the six-disc set, and even the first 3 movies haven't been reissued with any additional features.

How different is the packaging for the BB exclusive (and is it the only copy which they are selling)? Sometimes they just throw a paper-sleeved extra disc into the existing packaging (like "Inglorous Basterds") without changing the UPC and sometime they have new cover art printed and a new UPC (like "Zombieland").

There's a really good review here (http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/51528/willy-wonka-chocolate-factory/) on the site about this edition, but basically, there's a couple extra featurettes that are new. Otherwise, it's all about the collectibles. A book, a pencil case with pencils and erasers, repo letters and notes from the movie being made and a golden ticket.

For me, it was worth it as I just had the fool screen copy that I picked up years ago before I realized what that meant. Been meaning to get the WS, but hadn't so this is perfect for me.

Not sure about a new UPC, but the extra disc is actually part of the set. No sleeve with the disc thrown in. So in all, there's 6 discs in the BB exclusive set. Which is actually nice, except for the steelbook only holds 4 discs. So I left the DVD copy and digital disc out of the steelbook. There is a slipcover with a 3D lenticular on that BB set. I saw other sets, one with BD only, and another with BD/DVD that I think was in a DVD case.

You sure about that? The artwork on the packaging doesn't mention a 6th disc, only a little sticker on the front. I'd be surprised if the actual cases were different since even the UPC seems the same.

If they aren't different then there's an empty holder in the non-exclusive one. The BB set has a disc on the front and back, plus 2 double-sided hinged trays, each holding a disc.

Of course I'm sure about that. I bought it. I'll post a couple pics later today.

EDIT: Some pics of the set.
