I absolutely loved Sucker Punch. Well worth the $5...it's got style to spare. Great action, great directing and editing, solid sound, and sweet visuals. You will either love or hate the concept and plot, as those are the film's weakest points. I think people are overly hard on it, and most of them don't even understand it to begin with.

When/where was this $5 deal for Sucker Punch Extended Cut BD + DVD combo pack advertised? I didn't see it in a Deal of the Day nor in their ad this week. I'm just curious because even though I already have it (paid $7.99 at BB.com last November), I'd like to know how I missed seeing the deal.

My 2 cents on Sucker Punch is I heard very mixed reviews and was uneasy paying $7.99 on a blind buy, but overall I thought it was OK and it kept my attention. To me the weakest part was the total ridiculousness of some of the fights, but since it's all in her mind I guess the wimpy-in-real-life Baby Doll gets super magic powers and can destroy giant creatures and fly through the air. It's worth $5... barely worth $7.99. And I think some people described it as "a bunch of hot babes kicking butt". Well, I'd dispute the hot part. The girl who played Baby Doll isn't ugly but surely isn't hot.

Agree definitely worth $5.00 if anything to skip to the fight scenes for some eye candy visuals

PS: I missed the $5.00 pricepoint too oh well

It was right along with all of the other $5 movies on that stand they had set up I a main aisle.

Suckerpunch was a great movie actually. Of course, there were more unfavorable reviews than favorable. But in my opinion... great flick and great action and lovely eye candy!

For $5... well worth it.

The Sucker Punch for $5 I saw at the store was the one disc only copy (not the two disc extended cut).

The Hills Have Eyes Part 2 (1985) is $7.99 online and somehow appears widely avaliable in my area. Fingers crossed for more readily avaliable (and cheap) Kino Redemption titles.

Thanks for the heads up!

Hopefully the price is the same in-store. Going to stop by my local BB on the way back from work.

re: Best Buy / bestbuy.com discounts and deals on Blu-ray

Noticed these two Fox four-film repackagings (in single-width Blu-ray cases) at a Best Buy this past weekend for $29.99. I'm sure whatever flaws were in the originals (if any) are present in these. I expected Warner to do something like this first, actually, but they seem to be content to bundle up old discs into three-packs instead.

re: Best Buy / bestbuy.com discounts and deals on Blu-ray

As with 95% of the bundles that come out months (or years) after the original BD releases, I have at least 1 or 2 movies in every bundle they offer. Therefore, buying bundles rarely works for me. There were a few Fox 3 packs that were $15-ish at Fry's once upon a time where I didn't have any movies in the pack, but that's a rarity. Plus Butch and Patton will be the same transfers that people complain about as being waxy DNR processed.

Picked up the above today, they had a stack all with $7.99 tags. And in case anyone hasn't been in in awhile BB has the original Inglorious Bastards also at $7.99.

Picked up How To Train Your Dragon 3-D today, did not ring up the sales price of $22.99, rang up list. Then the cashier tried to pull the fake website trick on me. So I had her go check the shelf and when she got back she begrudgingly changed it to the sales price, noting it as an expired tag.

Just an FYI, Inglorious Bastards has been $7.99 since it's initial release and will probably always be $7.99. Or lower.

It's not on sale for $7.99. $7.99 is the everyday price tag for this title at BB.

Yeah, that's what I was saying. The post before me implied it was on sale, but it isn't. Almost bought it myself a month or so ago. Too bad the remake can't be that price.

For sure. I'm kinda holding back, waiting for Amazon, BB, and whoever to have a few sales that'll catch us by surprise.

Oh, and Deadwood Complete Series is $64.99. Hopefully Amazon price matches or refunds the price for those that ordered last week. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Deadwood...wood&lp=1&cp=1

and Rome Complete Series is $42.99 and the individual seasons being $19.99. Best Buy is being really competitive right now and getting a lot of my money. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Rome%3A+...Rome&lp=1&cp=1

Amazing! It's not your fault, but seriously not long before your post above I looked in this thread and other threads here to see if there were any deals, then saw the GoHastings 30% off email, went to BestBuy.com and Google to search on Planet Earth SE BD prices and saw it for full price everywhere (including BestBuy.com), so I ordered it used from GoHastings.com for about $20. Then I come back a couple hours later, see your post, and see the new price at BB. I'm used to prices dropping 31 or 91 days after I order and can't return, but less than 2 hours sets a new record.

GoHastings has no way to cancel my order online, and they are closed today, so I sent an email, but I have a sneaking suspicion they'll take their sweet time to read it and claim it's too late to cancel. If I refuse receipt of the package, will I get back all of my money or lose shipping (96c x 2)?

If Gohastings ships it anyway, I'm implementing a new rule never to pay more than $6 for any item there meaning I'll never order another used set from them ever again. I had this gut feeling/worry that this might happen, but not this fast. I should've trusted my gut.

Too bad BB they didn't put Frozen Planet BD on sale too.

^ What am I missing Manzana? You're going to the trouble to post and cancel orders over 96 cents per item?

Maybe he wanted it new and added to his unwatched pile rather than getting it used?

Sotra is right. It's not the price I'm worried about (which is the same). It's getting new vs. used for the same price. Now if I knew that the one I'd get from GoHastings would be pristine and complete, I'd live with that, but I don't know that. So I ordered the new one from BB.com and I'm trying to cancel the used one from GoHastings (good luck on that).

I was just curious if I refuse receipt of my GoHastings package (assuming they don't try hard enough to cancel it before it ships) if I'd lose the 96c x 2 shipping costs. The reason for posting (besides the question) was that it's a new world record on a price drop for me... under 2 hours after I ordered. I was most amazed because I thoroughly searched everywhere (including BB.com) before ordering at GoHastings. BB dropped the price right after I ordered.
