Thanks for posting. Looks like I'll be able to pickup Prometheus 3D for $14.99 with my $5 RZ coupon and the U&S. Doesn't get any better than that.

For $7 difference in list price, I will go for ET Target Steelbook ($17.99) instead of the digibook ($24.99).

I'll be delighted to drop $20 for the digibook of ET...as long as it's in stock. I'm just sad the Bonds aren't being released as expected.

Awesome, Prometheus 3D and ET Digibook for me.

What's the deal with the Steelbook at Target? Is it just a steel case? If so, I'm fine with the digibook. I thought the Jaws one was very cool.

Was hoping BB would have a decent exclusive for Prometheus. Target is $8 more, but will have an exclusive. Hmmmm.... Decisions, decisions...

I might pick up X-Men. I'm not sure if I already have it.

Re: Best Buy Ad 10/07 - 10/13/12

Does anyone know if the ET Blu release will have the original version without the gun/walkie talkie switch? I have held on to my limited first DVD release just for that reason...

I'm 99.9% sure it was confirmed that the guns have been brought back.

The DVDTalk reviews here are helpful for many things, including things like this:

http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/57295...rsary-edition/

Not surprisingly, the infamous 2002 Special Edition of E.T. has not been included as part of this 30th Anniversary release, as Spielberg himself regretted the digital alterations in hindsight. Though several changes were subtle and didn't alter the film's tone, other new scenes and effects (including some rather distracting CGI and, of course, the walkie talkies) didn't fit in quite so well.

A curiosity question about the upgrade and save coupon, do all Best Buys participate in that promotion? I have never done it before nor have I seen anything advertised at the two I go to.

It's in the ad. Your BB would have to specifically ignore the ad in order not to do it.

If the Best Buy you're in is due to close down, the manager will likely not participate in U&S. This happened to me at one location recently.

This time, you can pre-order for in-store pick-up.

But you lose out on the U&S promotion. Risk worth taking?
