Took some patience (not to mention miserly laziness ), but I'm finally going to pick up the original Scream ... and I might just impulse-buy Deep Blue Sea while I'm there. Thanks for the heads-up, junglalien.

Thanks, OP...off topic a bit, but...I picked up the Scream titles on Day 1 for $14.99 on March 29. As a Silver Rewards member, could I use the extended 45 day return period to price match?

Yes. I've never done that myself, but I asked that very question once, and was told that as long as you are within the return policy, they will price match...

Take them to Customer Service and tell them you want the online price.

I just ordered the Screams for pickup. I was skeptical at first, thinking there will be a 4-film box set. But I doubt they'll actually re-master the first 3 films. If they do, then I'll be upset, since I know the video is somewhat lacking with these releases.

Free shipping with Premier Silver + points so no need to wait on Amazon for me. Picked up Scream 1, 2 and 3.

2 Different studios for Scream 1-3 and Scream 4. Boxset is not likely.

Remasters? After releasing these a few months earlier? Not going to happen.

FWIW, this title is available as an enrollment selection at CH.

I went to the closest BB this morning and got 22 dollars or so back from my Scream purchases. I then promptly used that money to buy some other BDs. Thanks for the heads up on this OP!

I didn't know about different studios... Although they were just realized a few months ago, haven't they been out in Canada for quite a while, with the same transfers? The reviews seem to think they used the old DVD masters. Although I agree a re-master likely won't happen SOON, I certainly hope it would happen eventually...

The shelf-talkers weren't out to indicate that they're on-sale, but they scanned just fine at the register. On top of that, it's pretty clear that Best Buy was prepared for it (mine, at least), because they had a massive stock of every single one of the sale discs in various locations.

Grabbed Scream and Fiddler on the Roof for about $22 total.

I'm hoping Amazon matches the Scream prices.

I wouldn't mind upgrading Bad Boys! Otherwise I don't see anything else. Hopefully amazon matches that price as I really would prefer not to go to best buy.

Really tempted to pick up Casino at that price. Only thing holding me back is that I've read reviews that the BD doesn't play or stops in the middle.

Thanks for the heads up. Picking up Deep Blue Sea, Event Horizon and Scream 2 (my fave of the series) to see if it's better then my Canadian BD

Also, if you really wanted to get the Predator blu-ray (shitty quality from what I read) There is a free ticket in it for X-men First class, and the movie is 9.99, basically netting you the movie free if you want to see first class. Not sure if it's worth free though lol.

I think someone mentioned in the thread that it was the exact same transfer they heard.

Edit, I take that back

Here is a review comparing the 2 from someone on blu-ray.com who has the alliance, the aus, and the us version.
