Strike Back IMO is an awesome blind buy. If you liked a show like 24 and The Unit, it's that times 10 with the violence and sex.

I still have 7 episodes left to watch from Grimm season 1. Was going to watch them off Hulu Plus, but I will probably watch the BD instead and zoom through them. The new season starts in 12 days.

That's probably the old edition of Total Recall because the old ones I saw on the shelf had the Expendables 2 Movie Cash. I'd be surprised if the new Mind Bending Edition (if BB can ever be bothered to send it to their stores) has the movie cash.

I'm still waiting for Thor and Captain America 3D editions to be $14.99 after U&S, but next week it's just the 2D versions on sale.

Possibly Adventures in Babysitting. Maybe Rambo for the movie cash.

I don't own Avatar. Does anyone know if the one above is the BD with the extra footage/bonus features?

Is there any place that gives the full ad, or just movies?

I can confirm at least in the Michigan store I went to that the Total Recall with the movie cash is the old version. I had to return it and order the new version online.

Doubtful. It says "includes DVD" which would suggest it's the combo pack, which is barebones.

Ditto, assuming it's not the lossy, featureless edition. Which it almost certainly will be.

Re: Best Buy Ad 08/5 - 08/11/12

I was at 2 Best Buys tonight and neither had Total Recall Mind Bending Edition in stock. In fact, I saw some guy in one of the stores I went to buy the last copy. I checked on the computer and no Best Buy within a 30 mile radius has any copies in stock.

It's funny the ad for next week shows the Mind Bending Edition being $4.99 with the U&S coupon, but when I was at BB tonight, both stores only carried the old edition, which in fact is the one that has the Expendables 2 movie cash.

So what will the pain level be for trying to return the Mind bender version back to rebuy for the trade and save price or will they allow a price match?

I have $25 worth of coupons left.

I know I plan to use 1 on Strike Back and another on Grimm season 1.

Not sure what else is there to buy for this week. Granted, I would pick up the Total Recall Mind Fuck edition, if it weren't out of stock.

BB likes to be OOS on certain titles. The new edition of Total Recall this week will probably be vaporware like the Das Boot 2-BD edition was last week.

I have $10 in coupons and I'll struggle to find 2 BDs I want. I'd pick up the barebones (i.e. no extras yet again) Adventures in Babysitting, but I foresee the same situation happening as happened with another recent title: I'll buy it for $12.99 - $5 U&S coupon, and within my return period (which is now 60 days for Silver) Fry's will surely have it for $7.99 or less. Then I'll have wasted my $5 U&S coupon which I could've used on something else.

So I'd rather find 2 $9.99 titles I want to use my coupons on, but there's nothing I want in the list above. Are there any other $9.99 BDs on sale this week which weren't on sale in previous weeks? Too bad there are no new $14.99 3D BDs after coupon on sale besides the ones I already have (like Meet the Robinsons). Thor and Captain America for $14.99 are unfortunately the 2D versions.

Another thought... does Adventures in Babysitting being a Disney title now have a Magic Code inside for DMR points?

Well, bad news and bad news for me. I only was interested in the Expendables Cash on Total Recall MBE and Red (non-lossy). When I got there, they had many copies of Recall MBE, none with cash on it. Turns out, they forgot to put out the box with the specially tagged movies so they brought out the sealed boxes and unloaded while I was there.

It is ONLY the old Total Recall and ONLY the barebones lossy Red.

I had a similar experience. If you want Total Recall, you'll have to choose an option: the new edition or Expendables movie cash. You won't get both together.
