Just use camecamelcamel and/or:

http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/deals.php?country=usa

Then set the Show menu to New Price Drops or New Lowest Prices depending on how restricted you want the list. It's basically the same thing Lizard posts, but automatic and more up-to-date. You can event limit it too drops larger than a predefined percentage.

Thanks. I'll try that. If Lizard can't post any more, then I suppose we all will have to. It would be cool, though, to have the list posted here daily/weekly if it's not giant. If it's going to be filled with junk titles we've never heard of then obviously it wouldn't work. Yes, I'm lazy. Well, actually I'm just time conscious. I like to get the info spoonfed to me if possible. If not, then I do it myself. :-)

Thanks Lizard! That had to have been a pain in the butt to do.
Now go out and beat up that new Spider-Man.
(Oddly enough. I had a DVD drop nearly $5 and another $2 this morning amongst all the penny ante stuff.)

Re: Amazon Blu-ray Discounts and Deals Thread #27

Thanks for all your hard work, Lizard! I can't believe it's been only a year and a half. Seems like you've been doing it for years! Amazon's new prices are pretty ridiculous. I liked it much better when all BD's ended in .49 or .99. Oh well. As long as they keep giving us good prices...
Thanks again!

I appreciate all the thanks. I kept at it because I knew it was useful to have an ordered list of all the new lows and because anyone actually using the links helps support DVD Talk.


Here are a few low-priced titles that actually have respectable price drops today (although I can't speak for their quality):

Gross Anatomy $3.81

Up From Slavery $6.99

Lost in Translation $7.49

The Doors $7.79

Adaptation $7.99
Peter Pan $7.99

Taking Woodstock $8.99
State of Play $8.99
The Italian Job $8.99

City of God $9.10

Leap Year $9.49

American Graffiti [Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy] (Universal's 100th Anniversary) (1973) $10.99 (this one is finally getting close to my $10 price target)

Re: Amazon Blu-ray Discounts and Deals Thread #27

Count me in with everyone else... this was by far my favorite thread here on DVDT... Thank you Lizard for your hard work... we should all work towards posting the little bits we find and hopefully it will be as good.

Re: Amazon Blu-ray Discounts and Deals Thread #27

Agreed...thanks Lizard. I'm new to these threads so I didn't get to enjoy them for too long, but I'd already ordered 3-4 titles off of them. Selfishly I want you to continue, but I don't blame you at all.

God rest the soul of Lizard's consistently great posting of deals... and pussy's half price for the next 15 minutes.

Unless it's on Amazon, in which case it is 8 cents cheaper than the previously lowest price.

Yes, thanks Lizard for all the great work you have done!!

I think it's appropriate that you phase out now as my Prime membership just expired and I'm not renewing

American Graffiti is tempting, but it's $9.99 at BB with the upgrade coupon, so no dice...

If I had a BB within affordable driving distance I'd be all over that. But 190 miles is a bit far to go for a "bargain".


Some significant price drops into bargain pricing range:

The Ugly Truth $7.99

Shorts $8.28

The Christmas Hope [DVD & BLURAY Pack] $9.14

Phantom Punch $9.85

[Nothing I've ever heard of, but what do I know?]

It's only $6.99 if you have a $3 100th anniversary Universal coupon to go along with the upgrade coupon

Good suggestion. Unfortunately, I can't print any more of those. And all of the PC's at work block any Bricks coupons

Re: Amazon Blu-ray Discounts and Deals Thread #27

WEST SIDE STORY is the deal of the day - 50th Anniversary Box set for $25.

Anyone know if this is the version with the "corrected" opening credits? Or is that still an exchange-only thing from FOX?

I haven't researched this for a month or two, but back when I looked Fox made 1 correction which improved the problem but did not restore it correctly. I already forgot what the exact issue was, but if you Google it it's not hard to find video comparison clips with each version in different boxes.

I also don't remember what the magic UPC number was that has the fix, but I know that I looked for it a few times at Target and always saw the old version. So, I believe the answer is that your chance of getting the partly fixed version from Amazon is so-so, and if you don't you could go through Fox, but either way you won't have a 100% fixed version because Fox didn't fix it completely and correctly.

I already decided that I'm not buying this until it's really cheap (under $7) or Fox releases a 3rd 100% fixed version. I'm talking about the BD movie itself... I don't care about getting the deluxe boxed set with more stuff to fill my full shelves.
