Yes. I got that when I saw it. How can you not realize that? I love Bugs Bunny cartoons. I didn't love Shoot 'Em Up.

Hmm, nice deal. I was realizing the other day that I only have O11 on VHS and had to rent it. Never saw 12 or 13.

I liked any scene w/ Vincent Casell but beyond that, O12 wasn't good. O13...I can't say much, I was in tired when I saw it...but I remember thinking it was too much

12 is awful, way too self-conscious and most of the characters have this too cool for school atitude, also the ending was ludicrous. 13 is much better and a good popcorn film. I don't really remember the 1st one since I was on cold medication and drowsy.

I think it's a good buy at $18, even with the second one being a stinker.

I like 12. Another good reason for buying the Blu-ray of it is that it has an exclusive Steven Soderbergh commentary track on it, not available anywhere else.

agree... although this was kinda Amazon related as we were discussing getting the Amazon GCs to use when buying our Blu-Ray deals from Amazon...

so we have established the following
1) BB RZ points for "purchasing" BB GC.
2) BB RZ points for "purchasing" Amazon GC.
3) No points for redeeming a BB GC in store for anything even Amazon GC.
4) BB RZ points for redeeming a BB GC online.

Therefore... we might as well get BB RZ on our Amazon Blu-Ray purchases..
I'll add another layer of complexity to this. I did indeed get RZ points for Amazon Kindle GC's I purchased in-store, using BB credit. It was Store Credit, not a gift card, so perhaps the rules are different? I've always though BB Gift Cards and Store Credit worked the same since they both look and act like gift cards, but maybe they don't.

I liked 12 too. I thought it was the funniest of the three. I understand why most don't like it but it's not like the other two are classics. Didn't know about the exclusive commentary track for 12. Nice bonus!

I agree. I think technically, maybe it was on the HD-DVD too, but either way, it's a high-def exclusive.

The commentary was on the HD DVD version of O12, too. I haven't listened to it (hated the movie), but I have the box set of the three films on HD DVD.

They are not the same and function differently in many scenarios including reward zone. This is because store credit can not be bought... it is only generated from various types of return situations.

And here I thought SAW 12 and SAW 13 were already out and on Blu-ray.

Never read a thread when you've drank a few Mike's Hard Lemonades.

A number of my $6 purchases have begun to ship. I guess that means I have to pay for them and explain why I'm getting so many packages.

Same here, although I just got a shipping email this morning for Saturday Night Fever that it will not arrive on time due to "extreme weather conditions or an unforeseen natural event." I'm guessing I may received another 1 or 2 of these emails.

If I wasn't so drunk on wine coolers right now, I'd be laughing at that...

Ah... Sorry for the misinformation then. So I'm not sure about RZ points for online GC purchases. It may still be true, but maybe not. I do have a GC, so I'll use that on my next online purchase and find out...
