I'm only fond of the original and Batman Returns, I don't know if it's worth the upgrade if there are NO new features.

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

I saw that "The Water Horse" is $7.99 and also has the movie cash deal.

Also, I don't own any digibooks yet but am interested in Branaugh's Hamlet. If there anything special other than the book-like packaging? Maybe some production notes? If someone owns this do mind posting about this? Thanks!

Not to make you guys feel bad that bought 'Kiss of the Spider Woman', but iNevideo has it on sale for $6.99, plus $2.95 shipping (although currently out of stock - but I think they have stock come in quick)

Nothing extra but the book is quite nice. It includes:
Pictures of cast members
Act I: Kenneth Branagh and Finding Hamlet
Act II: Biographies
Act IV: Act IV: Trivia
Act IV: The Definitive Film Adaptation

Yes that's correct, 2 sections labeled Act IV and no Act III.

It's still nice though & the transfer looks great imo.

Does the Batman Anthology have any new features that aren't on the DVD set?
No just everything on the DVD set was carried over. I didn't see anything new.

same here...finally bit on that. Not happy on the U control feature they made out of one of the special features on the DVD but for the 9.99...I'll take that.

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

A few more (new?) amazon lows:

Dune (1984)--$9.99
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas--$9.99 (Universal release, not Criterion)
Pride and Prejudice (2005)--$10.49
Robin Hood (2010, combo pack)--$14.99
Twilight Zone Season 4--$60.99

Also, sale prices remain on Warner digbooks, but Amadeus, Falling Down, and North by Northwest now show low stock (6-20 copies). If interested and you don't want to wait, grab the ones you want soon. Batman, Hamlet, and A Star is Born are currently sold out but still may be backordered at the sale prices.

Yeah, "Tony The Ant" and one of his brothers WERE found beaten and dead in a cornfield in the Midwest. IIRC, the autopsy showed signs of dirt in their lungs, meaning they were still alive when buried.

He really pissed them off since, as the film showed, most other guys who got whacked just got shot a few times while he got beaten and buried alive

^ Looks like this is shipped from a third party and includes a shipping charge. Comes out to about a buck less then what Amazon is selling it for.

It is often possible to beat Amazon prices with third party sellers at Amazon Marketplace or Half.com, especially with older titles. That Amazon has two listings for the same BD release is a bit odd though. I hope that it isn't a trend because it will make searching a nightmare.
