The strange thing is, both BB and Amazon list the Midnight Sale release as 1.33:1 (well, BB says Pan & Scan but lists 2.35:1). B&N has a P&S version listed as well. The sale one is from 1/4/2011. The BD/DVD combo is from 4/6/2010. I'm not sure if there truly is a 3rd release or not. But seeing as 3 sources says it is not Widescreen, I'm skeptical to buy this. I know it doesn't make sense to have a Pan & Scan BD. Does anyone own it?

Just checked the DVD Talk review; the reviewer apparently had the combo pack since that's what is mentioned in the text. The review says the movie on the BD is in scope ratio.

Amazon is often wrong with their aspect ratio listings. I'm at the point where I usually ignore them.

Damn, Amazon is ruthless - even naming it a "midnight sale" :lol:

Having said that..... order placed! ;)

Shouldn't it be "Amazon never ceases to amaze me"?

The way you worded it, Amazon used to amaze you, and then they stopped.

Unless youre not paying tax on $5, it doesnt really seem worth it to wait IMO, especially if youre banking on "luck." I know its your money and all, but IJS..

Make a move on the sure thing.

FYI.. some of the movies are out of stock @ Amazon until June. Of course, you can still buy them, but you wont get them in the next couple of days.

Deep Blue Sea, Major League and Bad Boys are all not shipping until next week, at the earliest.

Amazon must have an inside man, if they knew the price was gonna be $6.00 exactly...

Oops, you're right! I knew something didn't look right... :doh:

I have a gift card so I'll probably buy the 2 from there and spend 3 dollars for both.

kenbenobi 05-18-11 11:06 PM

Re: Bestbuy.com midnight sale tonight, 5/18-19; 40 BDs on sale
 
I went with the 3 Screams, Thomas Crown Affair, Deep Blue Sea, Misery, and Amityville Horror... For 6 bucks each, I couldn't resist...

after the gift cards 1.85 for Starship troopers and Smokin' aces

by the way, how long is the time you can get an adjustment and do you think they would adjust since it's a midnight only sale?

The sale will be over before the stores open tomorrow, so I doubt you'll be able to get an adjustment. Just buy them, then return them with your old receipt...

Picked up Scream 2 and 3 from Amazon. Wish I waited on the 7.99 before, but oh well. A couple bucks.

Picked up Misery, Event Horizon, and Scream 1 from BB.

All prices being equal, getting the additional BB points wins out. That, plus I picked up a bunch of cheap DVD+Rs at the same time.

Picked up Casino and Major League. I'd been thinking about them at $7.99, at $6 it's a no-brainer.

Now, I get to ditch one more HD-DVD (casino)

some prices are starting to disappear.

Event Horizon
Misery

probably some others.

The Screams are still 6.00, as well as the few others I've checked. So if you haven't I'd get an order iin ASAP.

Crap - Scream 2 Blu-Ray went to $14.99 - Scream 1 Blu-Ray and Scream 3 Blu-Ray are still $6.00
Edit: Nevermind - I clicked on the new/used area on the Scream 2 Blu-Ray and first one is from
Amazon.com and its saids its $6.00.

Bought the three Screams, Deep Blue Sea and Starship Troopers - at Amazon.com
