$19.99 for Saving Private Ryan is $3 better than Amazon right now and I'll use my coupon to snag Leap Year for $19.99 as well. Amy Adams is always a first day purchase for me.

I agree, the ones they show aren't exactly worth 7 dollars, if there are better ones then I have to wonder why they didn't show those instead of these

Re: Best Buy weekly ad 5/2 - 5/8

This really could have been posted in the main section, as it isn't exclusively Blu-ray prices. Regardless, thanks for posting!

Definitely going to pick up X-Men: Volume 5 and Iron Man: The Complete Series.

I would have never seen it in the main forum, I'm sure someone could post this in the main forum as well.

Re: Best Buy weekly ad 5/2 - 5/8

$7 is cheap enough I'll probably give El Superbeasto a shot. 12 Monkeys is tempting too, just because I've been watching it for months and that's the cheapest price I've seen.

You don't need to wait until next week...12 Monkeys is currently $14.99.

Thanks for the heads up. Just ordered for in-store pickup.

Re: Best Buy weekly ad 5/2 - 5/8

Yawn.

$20 for a catalog title is insane.

Eh, not for one of the most highly anticipated catalogue titles to date, and especially not for one with a reference-grade transfer (which I'm assuming this will be). Most people didn't have any complaints shelling out $20 for Minority Report. That one's well worth the dough, and I'm sure this will be too.

Re: Best Buy weekly ad 5/2 - 5/8

Or just wait a month or two when they drop below $19.99. I just picked up Forrest Gump for $16.99. It's worth at least that.

I'd rather pay 3 more dollars than wait a month or longer.

Re: Best Buy weekly ad 5/2 - 5/8

Maybe now a BB some where within 20 miles will finally have 12 monkeys in stock. None of the stores around me have had it for the last month. Get that w/ coupon and SPR.

Re: Best Buy weekly ad 5/2 - 5/8

I don't think price is an issue for some folks. After all, a lot of people pay to see something twice (once in theater and then again when buying it in stores). I always find it humorous when people do complain about the price of a blu-ray movie, though. If they'd not gone and seen it in theater's, money would be saved. The last movie I saw in a theater was "Star Wars: Episode II". My home setup is much better than any theater, and it is much quieter.

.....I'm taking that with a grain of salt. Maybe some theaters but not just ANY theater. Let's not forget some theaters are fucking amazingly calibrated.

Yeah, really. I guess if someone thinks two or three months is worth $3 - I don't. It's one I want to watch, I'm getting it. And if I'm going to pay $20 for a catalog title (which I normally don't) it might as well be for a release like this - stellar movie and blu-ray (based on initial reviews)

Re: Best Buy weekly ad 5/2 - 5/8

I picked up Doomsday from BB two weeks ago. Had them price match the online price plus use the $5 off Facebook coupon.

However, Army of Darkness isn't one of those $14.99 online price points yet, so I'm curious to see what other Universal titles go on sale this week.

They probably will with this title, but they haven't been doing it all the time lately. The Lovely Bones being a recent example.
