AMAZON.COM 2 for $10 dvd titles

I found some good stuff here:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.htm...89061&plpage=1
I picked up Cobb and the Remastered version of Jezebel.
Another fantastic title I would recommened is Bamboozled (which was a list price of nearly $25 still)
Some other titles include :
Bubba-ho-tep: CE
Select 1 disk Remastered James Bond titles
Personal Best
Species 4

Re: AMAZON.COM 2 for $10 dvd titles

Quick Change with Bill Murray is another great one in the selection

I have yet to see it any cheaper - can't pass this up

Big Lots has it for $3, if you can find it.

Ah, hadn't seen it at Big Lots (and hadn't checked that thread in forever anyways).

I'll check it out. Thanks

Picked up Ladyhawke, Bubba Ho-Tep and Defending Your Life. If I didn't own it already, i'd have snapped up Ice Pirates. A definite guilty pleasure.

Is that version of The Searchers a bare-bones edition?

Re: AMAZON.COM 2 for $10 dvd titles

Amazon looks fine to me. What do you mean by "down?"

Agree, many of these titles are in the Big Lots thread. Off the top of my head these Amazon 2 for 10 titles have been spotted recently at a Big Lots:

Ice Pirates
Inspector Clouseau
Emperor's New Clothes
Kart Racer
Johnny Lingo
21 Hours at Munich
Quick Change (as already noted)
Frogs
Too Late the Hero
Thunderbirds Are Go Intl. V.
Ballad of Jack and Rose
Saddest Music in the World
Pride of the Yankees
My Summer Story
Flying Scotsman
Battleground
Ten Little Indians


There are probably more. It would be worth comparing.

Nice finds for Cobb and Defending Your Life!

But I'm having a problem with this deal. I picked four titles, but three of them are not coming up as being eligible for free shipping. I think Defending Your Life is the only one that is right now.

Suffice to say that this deal is far less enticing without free shipping. I added Ghostbusters Blu-ray and that worked to get me over the hump, but still.

I'd recommend Crash. That is a fantastic movie. I got it at CH because the price remained high. I've seen some of the others at Big Lots. I might be down for a few in the sale but am a little worried, I'd find them at big lots soon.

I recommend "Gloomy Sunday". Great movie that I don't hear mentioned very often.

"Lone Star" is also a really good film.

So is "Quick Change," but the specs don't say whether it's anamorphic. Anyone know?

Re: AMAZON.COM 2 for $10 dvd titles

If you want any of the classic titles, get 'em fast.

Several that I ordered when the sale was first posted are still listed above but are no longer part of the sale.

Jezebel, Prince & the Pauper, Bachelor & Bobbysoxer, To Have & Have Not, Home From the Hill, & Treasure Island (to name a few) have all gone back up in price (to as much as $17.99!!).

I had wanted to get several copies of a few of these (Jezebel, Prince), but the extra $1 discount didn't seem to come off of the second copy, so I removed the additional copies (planning to come back for another order later). Of course, I forgot about it & now they're gone. I'm glad to see some more great titles listed (although a few of them are no longer in the sale...Advise & Consent is one example). Maybe I didn't read the fine print...it seems that the maximum discount I get is $9.90 even when ordering different titles from the first order & only ordering one of each. I never thought of that before...I probably could have gotten two of the ones I'd wanted if I had stuck to a $50 order.

Anyway, just thought I'd give a heads-up in case you're on the fence about ordering a classic title (those seem to go fast & get removed first).

P.S. I'm also aggravated because I would have been glad to pay the extra $0.99 to get an extra copy or two of a few of those titles, but my greed got the better of me. Should have just left them in the cart (or immediately gotten together a second order). Snoozin' again!

That's why you bundle them with something to make it $25.
