Amazon Gold Box Deal - 3/9 - Die Hard Collection (?) - Starting at 1 p.m. ET

As part of their overall campaign this week:

Check out the Gold Box Lightning Deals every day this week from 10:00 am - 2:00 pm PST. Get great deals on some of your favorite movies and TV series all week long.

Today's clue:
This action packed collection on Blu, made a movie star out of a TV star

These seem like they're going to be Fox deals, so looks like it will be the Die Hard Collection.

Haha. Realistically, I'd probably bite between 24.99 and 29.99. I know, still fat chance, but that's what I'm holding out for.

That's not too bad for 4 movies if it ends up being the same.

I can't pay a penny more than $35 for this, hopefully it'll be around the $30 range though.

I bought the first one at Target just before Christmas for $10 a/c. If this is a reasonable price, I may buy it and return the other. Does anyone know if what's in this bundle are just the individual releases repackaged so I can return the new copy?

This was $30 + tax after coupon at Costco in December, if I remember correctly. So the price can definitively go down further than $38.

I thought about it and decided that like the Matrix Trilogy, I would rather buy the 1st film cheap and keep the DVDs of the rest of the series.

It was pretty cheap about 3 weeks ago. It was $30-40 range. I didn't buy it in time. I hate having to decide on movies or paying for food. In fact...my food budget is minuscule compared to my movie budget.

Actually I think the Life Free or Die Hard is the PG-13 one sans ability to get the unrated. And for my personal confirmation. Didn't the Unrated just dub in Yippi Ki Yay Motherfucker? Or was it filmed to later be unrated but released PG-13? I was under the assumption that was filmed to be PG-13 from the start.

Live Free Or Die Hard has only been released on BD in its PG-13 rated theatrical form....there is no unrated LFODH BD, only on DVD....

It is debatable depending on who you hear the story from (and from viewing both cuts).....the CGI blood looks kind of silly and added in later, though there is obvious dubbing/looping done to replace some on set uttered profanities in the theatrical cut (as well as obviously added later cussing in the unrated)....neither is perfect...the rated ends up looking like it was edited down to get a PG-13, and the unrated looks like it was pushed a little too much in post to make it into R territory....
