I just got Stool Pigeon a couple weeks ago from yesasia for nearly $28. Great movie! The dvd lists aspect ratio of 1.33 but I hope it's wrong for everyone's sake. Just want to recommend it.

Just a warning on Menace, its 1080i and 2.0 Stereo sound. It does have the special features and extended cut though. It's already at Best Buy and $7.99 I believe.

I believe it has been reported to be 1080i, DTS-HD MA 5.1 with the previous extras but is not the extended cut.

Same here...I almost grabbed it when it was $12.99 right before this. Snapped it right up yesterday morning. Glad I waited.

Now I see the price drop on Network...damn that's tempting.

Between my BD orders, some birthday gifts my wife ordered from amazon, and a couple of BDs I have coming from Barnes and Noble, I think our UPS man's head is going to explode this week. I think we are due about 12-15 packages between Wednesday and Friday.

Unless I will be taking it home and watching it within a week or so. I just wait. As with close to everyone on this site I still have stuff from two years ago I am just watching. That is not counting the many TV shows.

On a good note by waiting I have been able to get some TV shows in full for less then $100/$50 per season.

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

Recent:

Bourne Trilogy $29.99

Godfather Collection $39.99

I believe these are price matches to Best Buy.

EDIT: Godfather now up to $68.49 (and yes, that's amazon's price not a third party).

What was this, the shortest price drop ever...half an hour?

If anyone is interested, a third party seller still has it for that price, or if you have a BB near you, you could try to snag it for $35 with the $5 coupon.

Yeah, couldn't resist Network either. I just ordered it.

Amazon price drops + available gift certificate balance = complete loss of willpower.

Along with the other recent Warner catalogs (10, Pleasantville, etc.), You've Got Mail is also $9.99.

Excalibur would be a nice replacement for my snapper but don't know if I "need" it.
