Nice deals. Ordered An Affair to Remember, All About Eve, and The Comancheros. Might be worthy of a cross-post in the amazon deals thread.

Thanks for the heads-up Eddie.

Unfortunately, I'll have to pass. The 3 titles I'd normally be interested in all have lousy transfers... Butch Cassidy, Patton, and The Usual Suspects.

Awesome deal...I got them all but Rocky (which I already have on Blu-ray, and it's the one that includes bonus features - the digi-book version is sans-features, sadly).

Ironically, the already-on-sale Tom Cruise Collection popped into my deal list today, so I'm also getting it for $23.75!

Sweet! Now if only they stay in stock until I get home to verify which ones I'm lacking.

If the transfers were more highly regarded, I would have gotten Butch Cassidy for sure and probably Patton too.

Wasn't there talk that Patton was going to be reissued with an improved transfer?

I remember reading that too. It was a while back; I thought it was said they created a new master for it.

Since then, I've heard no news of a re-release.

I remember that from quite a while back as well, but I don't remember seeing any mention for a while. I wish Butch Cassidy would be reissued as well. Even so, I'm still tempted to pick it up.

Edit to add: Too slow! Superdaddy beat me to it!

Re: Amazon DOTD 4/19 Digibooks $9.99!

Tempting prices on the digibooks, but I already have Terminator, Patton, Rocky and Usual Suspects on BD in non-digibook form. Too bad the deals on the digibooks come so late as to be a moot point. Butch Cassidy, Tora Tora Tora, Affair to Remember, and Comancheros I already have on DVD. I'd like to have them on BD, but not at $9.99 each. Butch Cassidy is worth a $9.99 BD upgrade, but the stories about its bad transfer negate that. I wasn't that fond of the other 2 movies, so I'll wait for them to get cheaper.

I opened my Patton (not digibook) BD before I knew about the transfer issues. I should probably pop it in to see if it's as awful as so many people said. I remember watching the old Gladiator BD before I knew about its "problems". I thought the transfer was perfectly fine, and then sometime later read about the disc exchange program for the defective disc which I didn't notice was defective (so I didn't do the exchange). I was obviously blind or too involved in the movie to notice whatever the problem was.

It'll be interesting to see if all the Supernatural BD seasons stay $18.99 next week. If they do combined with the DVD trade-ins they'd be $13.99 + tax which is cheaper than the $16.88 + tax (net price after factoring in coupon and shipping) I just paid at my un-favorite place WBShop. Fortunately it's only a difference of $12. Too bad I don't have a crystal ball that works. Here I thought under $17 was a good deal for a BD season of a show that I'm actually watching (opposed to sitting on my shelf collecting dust as most do).

For those on the fence about BUTCH & SUNDANCE, Robert Harris is a fan of the Blu-ray and offers a different take than most other reviewers.

Thanks for the link. It was interesting to read Harris' thoughts on the disc.

Yes, for $10, and with Harris' endorsement, it's an easier purchase.

Tempted to pick up The Terminator but I think I'll hold out for a better release. Nothing else really grabs me as a must have.

Re: Amazon DOTD 4/19 Digibooks $9.99!

I was about to hop on the Tom Cruise set (which I'm sure he'd love!), but the lack of the 2nd extras disc for Minority Report is bumming me out.

Picked up Usual Suspects. Not the best xfer, and I already have it on Blu, but for $10, what the hell. I wish Master & Commander had been included, as I would have done the same there.

Don't forget, Harris also endorsed the pastel reworking of FRENCH CONNECTION. And he decried THE LONGEST DAY for DNR, but that one looks fine to me.

I went for THE HUSTLER which is a safe bet with or without Harris.

Re: Amazon DOTD 4/19 Digibooks $9.99!

I decided not to update any I already have on DVD (Terminator, Butch & Sundance, Usual Suspects, Patton), but did end up getting All About Eve, The Hustler and Tora! Tora! Tora!.

Well, what do you know...so he did. But, seriously, it should be obvious that the man knows of what he speaks and, even including a case like this one where I can't really agree, his recommendation, or lack thereof, is usually a good barometer as to whether to buy a disc or not.

Reading over his piece on the original FC release, his reasoning is well-considered and expressed, and he does address the main issue with that first release...the fact that it did not also include a disc with the film with its original color scheme intact. That omission was a deal-breaker for me and many other fans. It was a problem that was, of course, happily, finally corrected when Fox re-released the film with its original 1971 cinematography on Blu-ray earlier this year.

Harris has certainly taken some odd stances. I won't say I agree with him on everything, but for $10, I decided to take a chance. I ended up ordering:

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
The Hustler
An Affair to Remember
All About Eve
Tora, Tora, Tora

I had some credit and some points, so it didn't cost me much at all. A couple of those I've been meaning to pick up for a while and almost did a couple of times at higher prices. I guess I'm happy I waited. I was tempted to pick up The Comancheros, especially since I've been on a bit of a Western kick lately, but decided to hold off.

Since it's no longer 4/19, the deal is dead.
