Should I get Megamind for that price? Hopefully I get a good discount well 2 or 1 dollar difference would be great.

But idk seems tempting I haven't seen it and I really do want to see it so yeah.

Amazing. Let me in WILL be mine.. I might wait on amazon though and hope they pm like they always tend to do.

Is it sad that looking at the 13.99 and the 16.99 movies I have all but 5 of those?

Last Exorcism
Let me In
Alice in wonderland
Wall Street: Money never sleeps
Sex and the city 2

I have every single one of the others lol.

Great price on MEGAMIND. Also want to pick up ALICE IN WONDERLAND fir that price. May bite on DUE DATE if Amazon or Target has a lower price. Also if anyone hasn't seen LEGEND OF THE GUARDIANS, it is a really cool flick and a deal at that price...

A buddy of mine from my comic shop went to a screening of All-Star Superman Monday night. When he got home he posted on Facebook, "I gotta admit, I started to tear up at the end of the All-Star Superman screening." It took me a good 15 minutes to stop laughing! I have heard it is very good but I have been really disappointed w/ DC's straight to DVD releases including Gotham Knights and most recently Under the Red Hood. I watched them once and put them on the shelf--no real repeat value for me.

PS--I am having a "FIRE SALE" on my DVD & BD collection so if you are interested, I can send you my dvdaf.com collection. Most were watched just once or not at all. (I keep a very accurate system keeping track)

Thanks OP!

You can't do a price adjustment within 30 days? Or do you need to apply a coupon (which nobody mentioned above) which would probably make a rebuy/return necessary at BB (though not at Target)?

Regarding Scott Pilgrim, I've never seen it but a month or two ago it seemed like there was a deal at BB where a lot of people were freaking out over it (as in they were super excited about it). Does anyone recall what that deal was for comparison and was it for a combo pack or a single disc one?

I guess I should read reviews of Scott Pilgrim to see if it's something I might like. Of course it's still hard to judge blind buys from reading reviews. I thought I might like Where the Wild Things Are based on reviews, but was disappointed when I watched it. Of course part of the problem may be that I was half asleep during most of it because all I took away from it were a bunch of images and no idea why anything was happening or if the plot is anything more than this: kid runs away from home, kid does random stuff with beasts for a while, and kid goes home. Oh well. I guess I should try to rent stuff from Red Box so as not to waste $10 on blind buys, but sometimes I wait so long that no Red Boxes near me have what I want any more.

if my GF hadn't just bought me Scott Pilgrim for my birthday I would be all over that. $15 was my tipping point

Where the Wild Things Are has one thing in common with Scott Pilgrim - they are both films very concerned with style. However, they are very very different, stylistically. WTWTA is less concerned with plot than with the psychology of a child's mind, the search for meaning and order in the universe, and the importance of family. Scott Pilgrim tells a much more definite plot, but it's less concerned with its plot than it is with being witty and inventive. Check out some clips online - you'll be able to instantly discern whether or not the style of Scott Pilgrim is one that you'll enjoy.

Me, I am definitely picking it up at that price point.

Scott Pilgrim will finally be mine!!! Would get Let Me In, but I got it recently from the B&N B2G1F sale, and of course, that was the free one...

Will most likely pick up Scott Pilgrim finally, and probably should watch the original Let Me In to see if I want to also grab the remake.

Awesome, getting some cash back on Let Me in. I'm surprised they didn't wait another couple weeks so people wouldn't be able to get price adjustments.

Otherwise, nothing for me. Maybe Last Exorcism at that price, but I'm still on the fence on that one.

I thought BB was 2 weeks for a price adjustment?
