Universal Soldiers

The list goes on and on. They make these cheap ripoffs, and release them straight to DVD around the same time as the actual Hollywood movie comes out, hoping they can capitolize on the profits. Sadly, I think this tactic must actually be working, since they apparently can afford to keep doing this.
Let us not forget TRANSMORPHERS 1 & 2 and THE TERMINATORS. Hahahaha. I used to have people come into the movie story I used to work at and rent these thinking they were the ones that had just come out in theaters. I used to laugh at those people after they left.

Damn, I own almost every title on that list. The ones I don't own are $14.99, and I don't want to own. Oh well. District 9 is only $10.99, so I'm sure someone will take advantage of this deal...

The greatest thing on that updated pricing list is the notion that Blood Simple is coming to Blu-ray soon!

I contacted Amazon.com through their Live Chat system and they lowered the price to $22.99 for me -- making it $12.99 after the coupon. If they don't adjust it for you soon I would go this route.

After writing that, I searched and found that this is already out at Best Buy as an exclusive (and it's $9.99)...sweet.

I wouldn't mind upgrading Air Force One for $12 to get $10 back in movie bucks. The SD is ancient and I rented the BD and it looked and sounded real good in comparison.

Reference quality audio on this BD for sure. I was watching it downstairs with the door shut and my wife was aware of it upstairs...

Wow, I wish I would've waited to get the two District 13 movies. That price is well worth it for those 2 movies!

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

I guess I'll post this here though it'll probably be missed. I searched on Megamind and couldn't find any active discussions which is amazing considering a few people have mentioned in this thread the so-called aliasing issues in the video that so many reviews (all except 1 I found off of DVD Basen recently) mentioned as being so bad it was distracting.

Well, I ordered the combo deal with HTTYD and watched the Megamind BD last night specifically looking for this horrific problem. I saw zip zero nada problems, so either I'm blind and unobservant, it doesn't really exist (or was only on screener copies to reviewers), or there's some sort of equipment/distance viewing issue involved. I'm certain I saw no horizontal aliasing, though when there were sideways pans there may have been some stutter, but nothing beyond what I'd expect when a movie is panning and I don't have that auto motion feature on (which makes things look weird to me).

So, IMHO, there are no Megamind BD issues. If anyone else has observed them and can help me see them, please post or point me to the proper thread. For $26.98 for Megamind + HTTYD BDs, I'm fairly happy given that Megamind was a good blind buy (i.e. I liked it) and I thought it looked as good as any of my other computer animated BDs.

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

For those who preordered Bambi BD at Amazon with the $10 off coupon to get a $14.99 price:
1. have your Amazon preorders already updated to the new price $12.99?
2. did you have to contact them to get the $2 adjustment?
3. are we supposed to wait until after it ships for the $2 adjustment to occur?

Mine still shows $14.99, so I'd like to know if I need to contact them now or should just wait until next week for it to happen automatically (I hope)?

'Cuz Amazon is fast with my free Prime 2 day shipping and one of their shipping centers is close to where I live so I often get 2 day items in 1 day.
