Thanks for the response. I've been trying to research, but it's been difficult (at least for me) to find details about many of the Combo Pack releases. There's a big difference if the Special Features are on the Blu-Ray, DVD, or both. Based on my economic situation I"m not converting to Blu-Ray anytime soon, but if the Combo pack is at the same price, or cheaper, with an equivalent DVD then it makes sense just to buy that.

Besides, DVD is a dying format. On a decent day, you can buy a 100 pack of them for 20 bucks. If the consumer is paying .20 a disc, what is Sony or Universal paying when they buy millions? Not much.
Yeah, but considering the economic climate then my assumption is that it will still be around for awhile longer, even if it's been diminished. I could be wrong, we'll see. Anyway, thanks again for the reply.

We discussed this concept in a separate thread but not these particular titles. There was no all-encompassing rule, but I believe the general consensus was that the DVDs included in combos tend to be bare bones, even if it seems like a waste to make a separate pressing. Warner in particular now adds the Digital Copy to the DVD in a combo--or I guess they did before they started Ultraviolet.

Perhaps it's the years of my English major mother correcting my grammar or the fact that I know the difference between expression (i.e. saying what you want) and communication (i.e. ensuring the message the reader receives is what the writer intended), but your post clearly implied that that the $5 discount was something Amazon was doing. You never stated that you didn't know what prompted the discount (e.g. "They was a $5 credit listed as a promotion, though I don't know what that's about.") if you hadn't written "they're" as in "they are" then it wouldn't have made not only me wonder what the deal was?

Whatever. I should know better to expect cogent communication skills from people on the Internet where slovenly informality (in the form of atrocious spelling and grammar) and the anonymity seems to inspire a whole lot more opprobrium than the real world would tolerate.

It's just a peeve of mine, like on user-to-user forums when people post, "HELP!", as the topic instead of something like, "HELP! System won't boot after updating video drivers," which would get a hint as to what the problem requiring assistance is. My all-time, wish-I-could-punch-people-through-the-Internet moment was the moron who had a subject line like, "Unbelievable!" and then inside a link reading, "Is this for real?!?" thus requiring not one, but two clicks to find out WTF he was yammering about. When I asked why he didn't just say what he was on about, he sneered, "What? You too lazy to click?" (He's probably Occupying some park because he can't get a job with his degree in Internet D-Baggery.)
Seriously? Sigh.

My choice of tense was due to my being at that very moment in the process of doing what I said. The post was quite clear (although informal in its construction), providing all the information I had at the time. It was slightly clumsy perhaps, but hardly slovenly or otherwise shameful. I apologize, however, for any discomfort this may have caused you and to anyone else who may have felt misled by my post--it was never my intention to do either of those things.

(Why is it you keep trying to show how scandalously egregious my post was by mentioning what other posters do?)

My father was also an English major and corrected my grammar as a child. But I have learned the difference between everyday communication and submitting to a scholarly journal.

Friend, you overreacted due to your impatience. Own it.
