Only if it is advertised. If it is that price at target.com you could try reporting it to Amazon, then they might lower their price to match...

It was in the store. Doesn't appear to be on sale at target.com.

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

The Fugitive dropped to $7, but even though it's probably the edition with the VC-1 encode, it has worse sound than the MPEG-2, and the PQ still isn't great, so I'm going to hold off still. Really hope Warner revisits that one and does it right.

Human Target: Season 1 is down to $26.99 (46% off)

*edit - looks like it was posted a while back.

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

Amazon lists the Speed Racer Blu-Ray as having only 1 disc. I thought it was a 3 disc edition with 2 extra discs for a digital copy and a game. Is this the 3 disc edition and Amazon made a mistake or is it really only 1 disc now (like how Warner silently discards the DVD + digital copy on many of their other releases after a while)?

That said, it doesn't sound like we're missing much losing a digital copy and a game.

Love the show, but this is still WAY too much considering S1 had only 8 episodes. I also highly doubt it will be renewed for S3...

WB download codes expire a year after street so the Digital Copy is probably gone

Season 1 had 12 episodes. 26.99 isn't a bad price but it will probably go lower eventually and it's not a show I'm dying to own.

I thought 8 sounded low, but that's all I saw listed on amazon.com. I see now that there are more eps if I scroll down. I still think it's too much, even for 12 eps. Lost seasons had twice as many eps for less than that... Not to mention 2 discs versus 5/6/7 discs for Lost (depending on the season). Apparently I've just been spoiled...

I want to nab Human Target to watch again(especially to wash the bad taste of season 2 out of my mouth), but I'm in no rush. I can wait for cheaper too.

I would really like to get the Usual Suspects but I'm afraid of getting it only to find it's the 2007 blu stuck in a nice new digibook package.

I want to get Evangelion, but I bought the blu-ray of the first one when it first came out, and it had dropped to 15$ within a few months.

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

I'd buy Usual Suspects, Patton, and Master and Commander in a heartbeat if they were new editions with the special features (and a fixed transfer for Patton). But since all I'm hearing is that they're the same discs that have been under $10 for over a year but in misleading "book" cases, I'll be avoiding these like the plague and advising others to do the same.

Your first release of the movie was crap, lagging behind the DVD in terms of content, and you RE-release them with fancy new packaging that implies a new-edition and RAISE THE MSRP??

Pure balls, ladies and gentlemen.

What exactly is wrong with the transfer of Patton? A 4.5 star rating on DVdtalk, a 5 start rating on Blu-rya.com as well as positive comments on all other review sites I frequent seem to indicate the transfer is very, very good.

I jumped on the Craft. Glad I didn't buy it yesterday. Roxanne appears to be $11.99 now, but you can get it for $5 + $2.98 in the Marketplace...

Very tempted by Cujo, even though I've never seen it. Thoughts? I'm afraid since I have no nostalgia towards it, it might seem too dated and ridiculous for me as a first-time viewer in 2011.
