Nice of Amazon to do that but still charge me an extra $5 because I pre-ordered it. Once again Amazon punishes customers for pre-ordering. I thought I learned my lesson. I guess not.

You'll get it back as long as it's $35 on release day. I've never not gotten a release day credit. It's the drops that happen after release day that bother me.

I sent them an email. I agree that they should credit me as you noted that the price drop was on (the day before) release day. Hopefully they do. They shipped my order a few days earlier than street date so who knows?

I've never seen them fail to credit back the difference in these cases

I was gonna buy this until I read the reviews... Definitely not an upgrade over my DVD, so I won't spend the money, even if it is only 8 bucks...

Is your DVD anamorphic? That was reason enough for an $8 upgrade for me.

Re: Amazon Discounts and Deals Thread #7 (is it #7? I'll pretend it is)

At $8, I had to bite on the Killer, even with the so-so reviews. Ditto on Hardboiled for $9.49.

Mulling Minority Report at $12.49. Love the movie, but didnt want to pay over $10 for it. But, with the Killer being so cheap, that does make up some of the difference.

What to do? lol

Look's like Amazon has matched Best Buy's $7.99 on all of the X-Men films.

You can still get the quadrilogy from Amazon.co.uk for $25 shipped. AFAIK it's region free like most Fox releases.

They matched Best Buy's Cars deal as well.

$19.99
http://www.amazon.com/Cars-Two-Disc-...6859255&sr=8-1

Combined with "Save $10 when you buy Cars & Incredibles (exp. 5/31)" makes it an okay deal for those who missed out using the Disney coupons.

Yeah, it wasn't for me either. For $8, I'm sure it's watchable, at the very least, but its issues make it a tough decision, and there are far superior supplements on older DVDs, despite their flaws. The Hong Kong Blu-ray from Kam & Ronson was released a few weeks back, but I haven't seen any reliable reviews yet, and based on their history so far (and the raves of a complacent few in various forums for every "slightly better" thing they put out), I'll just keep my fingers crossed.

I thought The Killer looked fine. Sure, there could be some improvement, but for $7.99 it seemed fine to me (I'd bought it over X-mas at that price). --Peter
