Don't know about "The Hunger Games"; is it any good or some tween over sell? How odd, no listing for season three of "Community".

I think this is one of the best ads that they have put out in quite a while. Still, I'm not seeing anything that interests me. :p

I've been really looking forward to The Hunger Games but will wait for a lower price.

I'm always hopeful for some new additional $4.75 titles but it will probably be the same old same old. Might end up getting one or two anyhow.

A lot of choice for a summer ad, but nothing that interests me here...

08-09-12, 06:34 PM
Thanks John/snausages. More stuff on sale next week, still nothing that interests me...:sad: -kd5-

I really enjoyed Hunger Games. I'd recommend it. I thought it'd be typical teen fair, but it wasn't. I even recommend the books. Nothing in common with Twilight other than they were out around the same time. Some say it is a rip off of Battle Royale, but Battle is tons more violent and I can list tons of books/movies with similar themes. Loved Lennie Kravitz in it and Woodie Harrelson, too.

Is Lockout Blu for $14.99?

That's what I went with. There are TAGs in store that allow you to pre-order which version you want for $1.00. On the back of the tag is a code which allows you a 10 minute sneak preview of what's on that extra bonus disc.

This took awhile, I waited until three AM last night; Target hadn't updated their website - last week's specials. Screw this, I'm going to bed. Then this became a busy day. And here I am.

I didn't see anything new when it came to the additional $4.75 titles. But some of the $5 TV show stuff was on sale for $3.99. So, I picked up seasons 2 and 3 of Lexx for $3.99 a piece. Now I just need season 4.

Anyone know if Target stores are staying open passed midnight tonight for the Hunger Games release

I ended up with the Best Buy exclusive of Hunger Games. Splurged a bit more than I really should right now, but it looked like the only one with both Blu and DVD with some extra stuff which I'm a sucker for. Also, looks like the box might be able to hold the other movies when they come out but haven't seen it yet so I can't say. (Ordered it and having it shipped, think I'll get it Monday). But it is definitely worth the watch. Disappointed I couldn't get it at Target, but oh well.

Nice, thanks for posting. Did you watch at all? I've heard the tributes diaries aren't really worth it...Trying to decide if I should be jealous or not!

Not yet.

But this isn't high on my 'To Do' list. I just wanted to have it - just in case I might like it, a blind purchase.

I have a HUGE pile of pending titles to watch, on top of stuff I do. Right now I'm going through season three of "Community", I kept missing the broadcasts so I opted to skip it until it came on DVD. Excellent stuff.
