Zombieland is finally going to hit my $20 BD price point. I'll definitely pick it up. Thanks OP!

It was $20 at Target a week or two ago (not advertised in the weekly ad).

go for the UK import since the US release doesn't have both versions. I've only seen the UK version and heard the US cut has about 12 minutes missing from it. UK release is called "the Boat that Rocked"

I got the US BD last week and wasn't blown away by the film. Certainly not enough to import the UK BD. But that's a solid option for those that like the film.

Seems to be the trend. $24.99-$26.99 is the price point for a WHOLE lot of new releases. Even Amazon doesn't provide much relief.

I thought we were headed towards $19.99 last year.

If the studios weren't doing such a bad, imho, job of releasing catalogs in a timely fashion, I couldn't budget new releases the way that I have been.

I hope Amazon pulls through on Crazy Heart this month.

Total on amazon.co.uk with shipping comes to 13.28, which is $20.31...and still cheaper than any US retailer.

I really enjoyed the film, and can't imagine what they took out to cut it by that much.

Might double back and pick up Up In The Air.

Not a great price, but an acceptable one.

As far as I know the 13th, I guess they're not promoting it, which is dumb, but I don't remember them promoting Friday the 13th last year either, but maybe I'm wrong. I know it was $20 in the store and I had to do an in-store pickup to assure the $20 price so it must not have been in the paper, but in the store they were promoting the $20 price. So whatever.

$29 for the cut version of The Boat That Rocked/Pirate Radio? Hahahaha.

I picked this up in November for $18 on Amazon UK after conversion, iirc. And it's the longer cut, which the director intended (oh, and the original TITLE of the film too).

Definitely the most underappreciated film of 2009.... I have NO understanding how anyone can not love this film. The UK BD is fantastic as well and region-free.

Re: Best Buy Ad; April 11 - 16, 2010

I've been using Amazon exclusively other than the Toy Story deal, where I used K-mart.

So, I had been looking at Apollo 13 at the BB site and it's $18.99. Is it typical for them to take pre-orders at a lower price than their sale price in the ad, where it's listed at $19.99?

Or is it possible they've decided to match the Amazon price and it will be $18.99 in store? Do they match their own website?

Thanks.

Is there any indication The Hurt Locker is getting a reissue? I'll grab it at that price if it's doubtful.

I might bite on Fox. Up in the Air might got a bit cheaper. Let's hope Target has even lower prices.

I'll finally pick up Zombieland. Have a 5 dollar Reward Zone coupon too, so 14.99 isn't bad.

These prices are laughable!!! Studios are whining about rental market taking away from sales, but it's their own fault! Plus I don't even understand the entire Retail Strategy as well. Only for $19.99 on Blu-Ray. I mean Law Abiding Citizen was anywhere from $15.99-$17.99 when it first came out. You were able to find Boondock Saints 2 for around $12.99 for last 2 weeks at BB. Hurt locker just came down to $20 price point, but still overpriced! I'm tired of this crap. I have about 300 Blu-Rays and most of them I purchased for less than $12.99 unless it's movies I really want to. The only movies I will be purchasing day one for next few months is Apollo 13 ($5 UNI FB Coupon), Armageddon, Saving Private Ryan and Where Eagles Dare/Kelly's Heroes and few other Eastwood movies on 6/1. Rest I will just wait for great sales!

Tired of Hollywood overpricing their crap! Also as much as I love LOTR, I'm not spending a penny more than $39.99. Maybe +tax, but that is it!!!.

Um...ok.

Was hoping to get Pirate Radio. But thinking about it now, I'm just going to get the Region B UK edition and leave it at that.
