Their "50% off" is off retail I believe, it is misleading.

Hell, nothing else is at least 40% off, let alone 50% off!

Titles are marked at 50% off now (except for Alien Quadrilogy at 30% off)...maybe the sale wasn't due to start until today.

Note that if you buy Solarbabies and Night of the Comet you save an additional $3, and most of the 4.99 titles are available for the 4 for 3 promotion.

Entire original series of Outer Limits for $39.97, shipped. Buy Volume 1 & 2 together, for $24.98 (extra $5 off, see the Volume 1 product page), then Volume 3 (Season 2) for $14.99. You get all 49 original episodes.

Most of the titles are 50% off list price... isn't that a good deal? Most of you said that these weren't really that much on sale but I see some decent prices. Especially on the Alien Quadrilogy which I still haven't gotten. Is it less than $30 elsewhere?

There are some decent deals here. You might be able to get them a little cheaper in sales throughout the year. I recommend the Outer Limits. I got them a little cheaper 2 months ago but it's still a good deal. Also, check out each item's better together section. There's some additional savings on some of them.

It usually drops to the low $20s around Christmas time. At least it has the last few years.

Is The Abyss still the non-anamorphic release, or has that mistake been finally corrected?

The Abyss is always non-anamorphic. You'll hear a ringing from the skies when it finally gets an upgrade.

I just got it from Fye.com for a bit under 30 shipped and that was without using their discount card.

Currently $29.99 at Amazon, though it was even cheaper at some places a few months ago.

Impressed with the price of the Alien Quad box. Too bad it will probably be on Blu-ray within this year so I'll hold off.
