That's a fantastic price for Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Not sure if I'm going to the store for just one title, definitely some good stuff in there.

Never done a Black Friday at the store before. I understand it varies depending on your area, but how quickly do the blu-rays / DVDs go? I would guess the stuff that goes the quickest is the more expensive electronics.

Need Captain America, Thor, and maybe Underworld Awakening.

Wish POTC: On Stranger Tides was on the list.

You're right, it's the electronics stuff that people go crazy over.

Last year, Walmart did a staggered roll-out of BF bargains. Some BF prices were available at midnight, some at 5 AM, some at 8 AM (or something like that). At my Walmart, this really helped with the crowds. I believe Blu-rays were available at midnight, avoiding some of the craziness over the bigger ticket items which were later, and it was easy to get the movies I wanted.

Edit: I just looked at the BF ad this year, and it looks like the Movies start at 8 PM on Thanksgiving, and the crazy Electronics start at 10 PM, so you have 2 hours (or less) to try to avoid the madness.

Hopefully these will be available online or Amazon will price match. There is no way I will step foot in a Walmart anywhere from Thanksgiving - Christmas. Not worth getting trampled to death over some deals no matter how good they are.

Depends on the store, but I've been into places like Target and Best Buy on Black Friday afternoon and found some of the deals still available. I don't know that I'd stand in line for these, but I wouldn't wait until noon on Friday to go get them either.

Re: WalMart Black Friday Ad 2012

Some good deals, but they are all on the 2D versions of things like The Lorax, Captain American and Thor. I haven't seen any 3D BDs listed in any BF ads yet. Apparently 3D BDs are still considered obscure and not mainstream.

What I think about the lack of 3D BDs in the BF ads can be summed up by quoting an Elton John song: "It's sad, so sad, so sad. It's a sad sad situation, and it's getting more and more absurd".

Definitely getting Apes and 21 Jump Street.

A question regarding Amazon matching BF deals... do they only match until stock on hand is gone or all day?

Usually unitl 11 am or 1 pm -- whatever time the ads say the doorbusters end. Also, many of these BD deals will end up as Liightning Deals during BF week. I can't remember (because I actually went to WM), but I think some of these were active on WM.com.

3 years ago I went and just picked up the DVDs I wanted and left. Last year there was a crowd around the BDs/DVDs and a mad rush when the displays were opened. Some grabbing handfuls of the same title to resell. In the words of Charlton Heston: "It;'s a madhouse ..."

Too mainstream for my taste. These are the titles that I do not want anywhere near my collection.
