Karate Kid - $9.99 @ Amazon

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...=bluray-033-20

Also, there was a $3 off coupon atop my Little Caesars pizza box yesterday for either movie on Blu-ray.

Wasn't going to double-dip on this, but couldn't pass up the price. Great '80s classic!

Screenshots look solid and the blu-ray.com reviewer gave the transfer a 4/5. DVD Beaver said it was a bit soft but seemed to be true to the theatrical presentation.

I'm totally in for this. My daughter loves it too so it'll make for a nice movie night as summer arrives.

nice price. I was leaning towards to the 2-pack, but may consider just buying the first and renting the second one.

Re: Karate Kid - $9.99 @ Amazon

Any idea of the extras? Will it at least port what was on the first disc of the box set? Thanks for the heads up on the price OP!

Re: Karate Kid - $9.99 @ Amazon

I dunno why but....I've never really liked this movie. I loved Pat Morita but dislike anything not involving him. I haven't seen it since I was a kid in the 90s so.....maybe I'll like it today.

Re: Karate Kid - $9.99 @ Amazon

I noticed this on Slickdeals while I was at work (I can't check DVD Talk there as it's blocked), but as my free Prime just expired I needed to find $15.01 more that I wanted, and after maybe 5 minutes of searching (the most I dare while at work) I couldn't find anything. I figured that the deal was going to be dead by the time I got home where I could consult my want lists and DVD Talk and probably come up with $15.01 of other things, and just like I thought the deal had just died when I got home. At least I wasn't mad or surprised because Amazon always does this, and it's too bad I couldn't have placed a bet on it.

So I just made a note in my BD want/price list that The Karate Kid BD was $9.99 at Amazon in May 09, and now I'll never buy it for any price above that. Not a big deal because I wasn't that big of a fan of it, and someday it'll be under $10 again.

Wow, that's like over half the value of your pizza!

Re: Karate Kid - $9.99 @ Amazon

Now I just have to figure out which will come out at a better deal in the end...and hopefully cancel the correct one in time:

buying 1 & 2 separate or buying the 2 pack. Right now, it's less than a dollar difference.

Re: Karate Kid - $9.99 @ Amazon

My purchase strategy on Karate Kid BDs is very simple... $9.99 or less on the first one, $7.99 or less on the second, $5.99 or less on the third. When they hit that price, I plan to buy, but until then I won't... whether it takes weeks, months, years, or never we shall see. They are not movies that I care about that much to pay a premium or get too worried about... I have plenty of other stuff to watch.

My strategy is to buy the first 2 for as cheap as I can and pretend that the third one doesn't exist.

Never going to happen - if you must have Thomas Ian Griffith in 1080p, you'll have to settle for xXx.

There was even a 4th one with Hillary Skank in it, but Ralph I'm-not-so-Macho wasn't in it.

Yes, and that one is actually better than part 3. Yes, I went there.
