Whip It - $14.99 @ Best Buy

Whip It BD is on sale for $14.99 at Best Buy. I don't believe it's listed in the weekly ad. Thanks to the poster at blu-ray.com and the Best Buy thread.

I'm definitely getting this. It's just a matter of if I want to use the one $5 RZ cert I've got now or wait a few days for another one to hit my account and chance it being sold out.

It does not. The DVD, OTOH, did, but the BD did not.

Also, the first BD printing used green cases, and the later printings uses the normal blue cases. I'll hunt around my local BBs for the green case.

No prob, actually I should have mentioned that someone had posted this over at blu-ray.com and the BB ad thread already, but I think it's a really good price drop for such a recent release it deserved it's own thread!

I hope I find it in the green case; it has a nice flow with the cover.

Re: Whip It - $14.99 @ Best Buy

Amazon just matched this deal.

Thanks op for this thread. Thought I would have to wait much longer for this one for a good price.

Sex Drive is also 14.99 and I have been failing to get that one for a bargain for ages so I am not going to let that price pass me by either.

Thanks for the tip matome. Free shipping from Best Buy is a big plus. I won't have to find $10.01 in fillers at Amazon.

My local BB had three left -- 2 with blue cases and one with green; I grabbed the green one.

Is this a good blind buy?

If you like Ellen Page and Juliette Lewis, then it's worth it. I thought it was a nice indy movie.

Now you have me thinking... I love Ellen Page, but don't like Juliette Lewis...

Re: Whip It - $14.99 @ Best Buy

It's a really fun movie. It's not going to change the world, but it DID make me check out if there was a roller derby league in town to go check out just because it seems like it would be fun to go to. Come to find out, there is!

Thanks OP and onebyone for letting me know about Sex Drive. Been looking for it under $20 for along time.

Thanks, OP. And thanks onebyone. I bought a blue copy at Best Buy and just ordered one from Amazon. Hopefully the Amazon one will have a green case. Either way, the Best Buy copy is going back.

I'd be interested to know if amazon ships the green case of the blue one. When you get it, if you could report back here, that would be swell.

Re: Whip It - $14.99 @ Best Buy

One of my local BB's I went to only had 3 copies and all three had Blue Cases

Might have to check the other sometime this week.

Re: Whip It - $14.99 @ Best Buy

I found it especially entertaining that the film was set in my hometown of Austin (and the outlying areas) but 95% of it was filmed in Michigan for budgetary reasons.

You end up with a film that looks nothing like Texas... but every once in a while they cut to Ellen Page or someone walking downtown in Austin or by a landmark (I remember seeing Lucy in Disguise with Diamonds on S Congress for sure, a shot inside the Alamo @ The Ritz, and walking down 6th street [which is right in front of the Ritz]), which I'm sure they picked up in a day or two in second unit. The shots are all literally within 3 blocks of each other, lolz.

It was pretty entertaining seeing the film at the Alamo Drafthouse @ Ritz and seeing the characters in the movie in the same theater. That doesn't happen often, lol.

The movie, eh. My girlfriend LOVES it though. You can also see the real TXRD here in Austin although they don't play at The Warehouse... they are at the Convention Center monthly, where they set up their track. heh.

I loved the movie. Bought it from Amazon today. Let's see what they give me.
