Chariots of Fire for $12.99 with trade is kinda tempting.

No Marilyn Monroe movies on sale? At least they could have advertised the box set. I guess she's not a big enough star.

Wow, that's a pretty weak selection.

Granted the Hatfields and McCoys was an excellent miniseries.

Nope. I just gave up and ordered the single disc from amazon with my rewards points.

It arrived today. Planning on watching this week.

I'm not seeing anything that interests me. Was hoping that the Hatfields & McCoys would be a few bucks cheaper. So, I'll hold off on that for now.

It is, and of course I just ordered it from the UK. But I prefer that one since it has an isolated music track that the US is missing.

Lame selection.. same old crap that is (or has been already) on sale. Got Bourne for same price a few weeks back with trade-in. Nothing new.. hope the last week will be amazing.

Damn. Detention isn't in the ad. So I guess I'll just be picking up Total Recall,which while not in the add,is listed for $9.99 on BestBuy.com with Store Pick-Up listed as Coming Soon,so it should be in-store,and just not advertised much like the 1st couple weeks of the Spider-Man Trilogy & Men in Black rereleases

Wonder if Chariots of Fire is the BR book.

Does anyone know when the digital copy expires for Despicable Me?

Yup, I do believe the digibook is the only Chariots of Fire available right now, at least in North America.

Part of the reason why the $12.99 price point is attractive. I'm glad to get a digibook for anything under $20, much less $13.

Amazon had Chariots for $12.49 sometime this weekend; doesn't appear to have lasted very long. I snatched a copy, but if the UK version has an isolated music track I'd be very tempted to ditch the US for that.

Begin Rant
[And who's bright idea was it to manufacture bonus CD's that only have a few tracks - either give us the full soundtrack as a bonus CD, or put those tracks on the blu-ray - no need to waste the oil/plastic for 20 or 25 minutes of music!]
End Rant

Anyone know if The Bourne Trilogy Blu-ray collection, not the individual releases, have the movie money for The Bourne Legacy?

I've seen it on both the br and regular DVD trilogy collections at all the BB stores I've been to.

Read some reviews on Amazon that the Bourne blurays won't play on the PS3 (which is what I have). Is this trilogy any different than the flip side combos on the individual movies?

Thanks OP!

Good to see many of the titles that were on sale last week are still on sale this week.
