They had Donnie Darko for $10 around the holiday season, but I haven't seen any in stores for about a month or so.

I was able to pricematch it at Best Buy today. :D

It was about fully restocked too, cause I had stopped in several times to check out the new selections and it seemed like it was taking them eons to get all the movies in their place.

Sounds like my Walmart. They only had the $10 Lionsgate titles released this past Tuesday (i.e. Running Man, Phantom) and a couple of other newly released titles like Time Travelers Wife and Couples Retreat.

I asked the customer service rep about what I had read regarding other locations having these large blu-ray displays and he said they didn't get anything like that.

As usual with Walmart, YMMV...



The YMMV nature of Walmart is the #1 reason I hate shopping there.

Picked up Close Encounters of the Third Kind ($15) and Resident Evil ($10).

They had a bunch of $10-$15 Blu-rays in the big "H" shaped rack in fron of the electronics section, with the BRs on the four short tips of the "H" -- probably about sixty or so in total.

Almost grabbed "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" for $15, but passed since I remember some bad reports about the transfer.

Keep in mind that the BD of Live Free or Die Hard only has the PG-13 cut. I'm waiting until they release it with the unrated cut.

Never heard any serious complaints about the transfer, but what's keeping me from buying it is the fact that almost all of the special features aren't even actually on the disc, but rather are available via BD-Live. That's pretty much bullshit, in my opinion, so I'm boycotting the disc. I don't like that I wouldn't physically own the special features, and if they decided to take them off their server or something, then I'm shit out of luck. I'll stick with my DVD.

Edit: If I found a copy for around $5 new or used though, I'd have no choice but to suck it up and buy it.

From looking at my blu-ray, most if not all the special features are on the disc.

Really? Everything I've read has suggested that most of them are BD-Live only. Hmmm.

IMO the uncut version is worse with the horrible cg blood and terrible cuss dubs

seriously it completely ruins the movie.. they rushed it the CG blood and horribly dubbed cussing to please the pissed off die hard fanboys which oddly enough made them even more mad

im all for blood and cussing but when it just ruins it

X4.


Proof that more swearing and blood doesn't make a movie better. The absence of swearing in the rated version was the least of that movie's problems{I actually liked DH4 though}.

NiCK Crush 02-13-10 11:26 PM

Re: $10 Blu-rays @ Wal-Mart

At this point, should we just change the thread title to Bargain Blu-Rays @ Wal-Mart? ;)

Re: $10 Blu-rays @ Wal-Mart
 
Sounds good to me. It seems like it's a different spread of titles at every Walmart.

styl3s 02-14-10 11:56 AM

Re: $10 Blu-rays @ Wal-Mart
 
These have probably been listed but i picked up

$15
Bourne 1-3 (YMMV, they were 20$ at my other walmart a few days ago, maybe they are overstocked and are selling cheaper because they had about 50 copies of each)
Push
3:10 to yuma
The Kingdom
Transporter 3

$13
Taken
The Wrestler

im going to another walmart tonight ill take pictures of everything to try and make a list i just know the turkey creek walmart here had about 15-20 2-pack BRs.. they had an entire wall full of them it was ridiculous the amount of different ones they have and that was just in the in-stock one, there was about 4-5 spots that were empty and sadly i didnt see the saw 3 pack :(

Blah! The uncut version is truer to a Die Hard film than the PG-13 version.

where if you go in to buy the recent 300 collectors edition all you will find is this. and when you ask about buying the movie, the rude cashier trys to tell you that, everything that is in that plastic case is the bluray. (even though its clearlyjust the back paper insert and the digital copy)

i am going to socal in 2 weeks. is that the only walmart in the area?
is that neighborhood even safe?? when i hear crenshaw blvd all i tend
to remember is boyz in the hood.

Really? Because I don't remember any CGI blood and dubbed cursing in the other Die Hard movies.

Kory 02-15-10 10:09 PM

Picked up Close Encounters for $15, BBC's Nature's Most Amazing Events for $15, and BBC's Galapagos for $10. The latter two are narrated by David Attenborough and Tilda Swinton, respectively, and are both 1080i, rather than p. Not sure if I'm going to keep them but I figured I can easily return them later if I want.

I also picked up "Ren & Stimpy" Seasons Three and a Half-ish, and Season Five and Some More of Four for $19.96 each (on DVD).
