Not all of those (like Scott Pilgrim and Robin Hood) are Blus...

Lost in Translation and Eternal Sunshine for $20 is pretty solid.

$26.73 w/shipping and tax. Not too shabby.

These two together on Amazon currently are $28.98 shipped.

I'll wait for another (inevitable) Amazon price drop.

I got lucky and was able to get Scott Pilgram, Get Him To The Greek, Robin Hood, and Traffic for $40 plus tax. Definitely YMMV though.

Re: 2 for $20 at Best Buy

I really love "Eternal Sunshine" and "Lost in Translation" but since I already have the DVD, I don't know if it's worth upgrading.

There are no new extras and the transfer is the old HD DVD. So I don't know if I should wait until possible anniversay edition or something in the future. Problem is that it could be very long time until new version comes out and there is no guarantee that they are going to remaster it.... can't decide

The old HD DVD transfers are vastly superior to the DVD transfers. I have both titles on HD DVD and I'd still like to upgrade to Blu-ray.

I saw it in the store too (Watertown MA) and I'm pretty sure the endcap poster had the Robin Hood blu ray combo pack pictured.

Re: 2 for $20 at Best Buy

Just ordered Children of Men, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Lost in Translation and Traffic for in-store pickup. I work right across the street from a Best Buy, so I don't mind paying tax if I'm going to be right there anyways. $40 plus tax for 4 of the best movies of the last decade is a great deal in my book. Thanks OP!

All the good stuff is only on dvd for this sale. There should be a disclaimer on this thread.

How'd you manage that? Lost, Children and Sunshine are showing "not available" for in-store pickup.

EDIT: Never mind. Shows "not available" on main page, but when added to cart and stores searched, it shows available at my local BB. In for Sunshine and Lost. Both have been in my Amazon cart for a few weeks.

I have no doubt that it's superior to the DVD. But with few of the recent classic releases getting remastered with 2k transfer and better(Taxi Driver, Sound of Music, Tenth Commendment, etc - I know these are proven classics, but I consider the "Lost in..." and "Eternal..." to be modern classics ) I'm sure these movies can also benefit with the new remastering.

I just know that IF they do remaster these, I will buy it again - and I'm just tired of double dipping these days. I'm willing to upgrade, just not more than once

Sorry for going off topic - I do know that chance of getting new edition is very slim and I will probably buy these (I was never good with holding out anyway - I just upgraded my "Planet Earth" last week )
I really got to save money these days and was just venting

Re: 2 for $20 at Best Buy

I have Lost in Translation and Eternal Sunshine on HD DVD (along with 100+ other titles) and with very few exceptions I don't plan on re-upgrading to Blu on them. I've never even watched these (discs, seen in theaters) and have a backlog of HUNDREDS of unwatched, blind-bought movies, so I'm sure these will be sufficient. Also, many catalog Blus were made from the same masters as the HD DVDs, like Blade Runner and 2001.

Re: 2 for $20 at Best Buy

All of the titles on the BestBuy.com link have been put on the display in-store, in Blu-ray form. Some of them will ring up at regular price, but a quick walk back to the display to show them that it's on the display and their own employees put it there was enough to get them to override the price for me. Was able to include "The Kids Are All Right" in my 2-for-$20 purchase yesterday. I wanted to buy that and "Greenberg," but my store was all out of the latter.

Re: 2 for $20 at Best Buy

Went today to pick up Taxi Driver and to take advantage of this deal.

I originally planned to pick up "Lost in..." and "Eternal Sunshine..." But I saw on the display a picture of blu-ray version of "Robin Hood" and "Get Him to the Greek." I checked online and these was not on sale, so I just took a chance. It didn't scan for the sale, and had to be override it. It took a while since cashier had to call the manager and we all had to walk to the display and check. But since it is pictured on the display, the manager reluctantly overrode it. Good deal since it's priced $24.99 each. But now that I bought it, I don't know if it's worth it. I haven't seen both of these movies and I heard only mediocre reviews. Is this worth owning? I'm such a sucker for bargain that I bought these instead of movies that I know I love(but I do have the DVD version to those) Anybody have opinion about these movies? (Robin Hood & Get Him to the Greek)

How would that be an upgrade if you are basically getting the same quality as the HD-DVD

Cause Blu-ray is still alive. I'd like to eventually get rid of my HD DVD player and movies.

I'm in agreement. I think I only bothered to buy 1 or 2 of the titles I had as HD-DVD as Blu but only because there was some kind of upgrade of some kind whether it be video/sound or extras. I would prefer to wait for them to release a newer and perhaps better remastered version of a movie before I bother rebuying something I own already on HD-DVD.

Re: 2 for $20 at Best Buy

No poster or display at my local. Corporate must have sent out a memo instructing them to pull it on account of the titles priced incorrectly in their system.
