Thanks. I haven't been into Best Buy in a few weeks. If I recall, it seems as if they pulled primo titles off the shelves and/or had re-stocking issues for the last round of Upgrade and Save.

Sweet, hopefully can add a couple more good movies for only $5 like last time. Picked up about 10 solid titles last time. Will have to wait and see.

Might be in for "Super 8."

I'm curious about The Wicker Tree since The Wicker Man is one of my all time favorite movies, but it's been getting such horrible reviews that I'll either rent it first or wait until it's a $5 DVD.

Nikita: The Complete First Season

:jawdrop:

Absolute no-brainer at that price and well worth a blind buy for anyone who hasn't seen it. Great show that has a tragically small audience.

The sound of countless DVDs being pulled off of shelves and out of old storage boxes begins...

Good price for Hugo - 12.99, right?

I'm running out of dvds for these upgrade and saves!

A good price is whatever someone is willing to pay for it in my book. Personally for me that is $5-6 now thanks to these upgrade and save programs and the Blockbuster deals this past year. Between the 2 programs I have gotten about 100+ titles added to my collection. Right now see about maybe 5 titles I might get if they are still at the price they currently are at Best Buy.

Wow, hope I can find all seasons of Supernatural. Might be willing to upgrade if they all stay at 18.99.

Justified Season 2 and Spartacus: Gods of the Arena will be mine. Just got Nikita a few days ago so may do an exchange and pick it up again to save another $5.

Only thing LISTED that I will get is Justified Season 2. Lets hope they dont pull their usuall bullshit and take stuff of the shelves to get some good deals.

Crazy, Stupid, Love would be worth $5
I blind bought it for $9.99 + tax from Target on BF and still haven't opened it. I heard it was good. Now I obviously wish I had waited. I need a little animated icon of me slapping myself in the face for paying too much. I should seriously never pay more than $7 for any new BD unless I plan to watch it immediately.

The rest of the cheap titles ($4.99 or $9.99 after trade-in) I already have and got for the same price or less. I would also have a problem buying a title that has a good 3D edition out there (like Hugo). I feel like I should wait for the 3D one to hit $15. Seems impossible for 3D BD but Clash of the Titans and Harry Potter DH 2 were $15 and $10, so it could happen.

They don't take primo titles off the shelves. They don't put anything on the shelves in the first place. You been there lately? The shelves look like after a Black Friday sale. I have 10-20 titles I'd gladly trade up but, when you check the listing it's either order in store or on-line.

2 $9.99 - $5 = $4.99 titles worth mentioning I saw in store:

1. A Clockwork Orange (marked down from $24.99)
2. Fear & Loathing In Las Vegas (Depp)

The Wicker Tree is an abomination; don't waste your money. Rent it first if you absolutely must see it, but it's terrible.

None of the titles I want to trade for are available right now. I hope there is a better selection next week.

The shelf tag called it "Special Edition" but it looks like a regular edition to me. I'm not familiar with the "digibook".

I wasted a coupon last week, but I got to watch it for the first time and am happy with the purchase nevertheless.

I can't tell if you're joking....

The Nic Cage movie is a (terrible) remake of a British horror classic.

Fixed. Not only is The Wicker Tree a loosely connected sequel to the original The Wicker Man, but there's a third film in the works:
