Best Buy DOTD 9-15-12 $3.99 Titles

The Lookout

Supercop 3

The Crow: City of Angels

Have a feeling they won't last till the end of today, so get what you need NOW.

WARNING. The Lookout and Supercop 3 and The Crow: City Of Angels are ECHO BRIDGE (i.e, shitwad releases, aspect ratio CROPPED), so I don't recommend buying them.

Keep in mind that these are the low-grade "Echo Bridge" versions of the films. Both "The Lookout" (an excellent film) and "Supercop 3" are cropped from their original 2:35 aspect ratio to 1:78. I almost pulled the trigger on "The Lookout" until I checked out the reviews of this release.

They also have bonus RZ points in-store today. I assume 2X but I really don't know. She scanned something for me at the register...

If you're going to get The Lookout, buy the Echo Bridge double feature release with The Yards. IIRC, it's not cropped.

I wasn't aware either. I only got The Crow, however. Jesus, can't a person just buy a fucking title without having to do rocket research. Echo Bridge is a shitwad company.

EDIT: I canceled my order for The Crow: City of Angels.

The Action Six Pack is the better deal...

The Lookout and Equilibrium are proper AR with DTS-HD MA 5.1 sound.

Supercop is still cropped but has the proper DTS-HD MA 5.1 track created for the Dimension release.

I received 'The Lookout' y'day - it is NOT the Echo Bridge release but the original Miramax/Buena Vista 2007 release with the 2.40:1 AR. The UPC is a stickered one that goes 0-96009-01681-4 - a lookup on Google with this UPC points to the EB release but am confirming what I received is NOT. I was about to return the package even w/o opening it since I was so sure it would be the EB release (for the $3.99 price) - but BB came thru with a surprise this time. The original Miramax BD release has spectacular reviews on blu-ray.com

Thanks, OP

Just got mine, and it was the 2007 release also! Score!!!

I decided to get the single disc Echo Bay release because it was cheap and I wanted the commentary. I would have paid triple if I knew I was getting this!
