I really like the Target exclusive (2-disc w/pictorial book) as well.

Anyone notice Lucas' "Han shot first" t-shirt (in photo with Spielberg and Ford)?

Are they exactly the same walmart was selling a few months back? and how are the lenticular covers packed?

Thanks

Even though I don't have a BR player yet (prob. next week), I went ahead and got the Target exclusive. That packaging was just too sweet! Plus, I heard the BR looks much better than the soft SD.

Question for the people who got the Best Buy skull, what is the size of it? Also is the DVD still shrink wrapped inside the box?

Yes, the Blockbuster 2-disc version comes with the lenticular covers for Raiders, Temple of Doom, and Last Crusader. But NOT for Crystal Skull.

Yes, they are the same covers from Wal-Mart. They are shrink wrapped on to the 2-disc dvd. You don't get 3 extra slipcovers, just the lenticular cards that would normally be glued on to the slipcovers.

So I had never seen the new Indiana Jones, I heard it wasn't that great, and though I had intended on seeing it in the theater at some point, I just never got around to it. So on Sunday night I pre-ordered it from Best Buy with an IN-STORE PICKUP. Well when I went to pick it up from the IN-STORE line, my dvd was not there. They forgot to pull it. It took almost 7 minutes for them to get it for me so the "if you don't have it in your hands within 1 minute, you get $10 off" kicked in. That's cool. Not the first time it's happened to me. I opted for the $14.99 single disc so suddenly Indy was mine for just $4.99! I was excited, I came home like a giddy school boy and popped the dvd in with my wife .... all I have to say is .... we want our $5 back !!!

What a terrible, terrible film! I'm going to pretend this movie never happened. I love Indy, but this movie was just crap. This is what we waited all these years for? Years went by and George kept saying he didn't want to put out crap just to put it out there. He wanted to put out something great, so they waited and waited until all 3 could agree on something good. This was it???? I had no problem with the storyline, though it was initially difficult to picture Indy in the 50's but the writing was just terrible! I lowered my expectations because of all the crappy reviews and still it sucked beyond belief! Soooooooooooooo disappointing!

Man, I am going to bed! I can't believe I stayed up for this crap!

Wow, I don't know what movie you saw, or those who have been giving it crappy reviews, but, it's not the same movie I saw. I don't understand what people don't like about it, but, it's exactly what Indiana Jones has always been. I figure if you don't like this one, then, you must not have liked the others.

A TRUE Indiana Jones fan will appreciate this movie. As I watched it again this week there were a few moments that really hit me - mainly the moment when Indiana boards the train, takes a sorrowful look back at the past he's about to leave - the look on Ford's face and the mournful presentation of Indy's theme really made me appreciate the movie on a whole deeper level.

And despite the doomsday part, that 21 minute opening sequence is pretty much top-notch.

I never understand statements like this. A "true fan" and all that. A "true fan" can love the movie or not like the movie at all. It doesn't take away the fact that they love/not love the other movies. It means that they have a different opinion from other people. Nothing wrong with that.

I consider myself a "true fan" of Indiana Jones. I saw every movie in the theater, sometimes multiple times, but I did not like Crystal Skull. It's just my opinion and that's it. I do like it more since I saw it a second time, but to me it's just not that great.

As, I'm not the owner of a whip, a leather jacket or a silly hat, I would have to maybe agree with this quote. As a casual fan of the series, I found this movie to be boring, unneccessary, and and just generally a big letdown. Maybe Indy's solemn expression at the train station saved it for you, but it was pretty much the other 2 hours and 1 minute that did it in for me. Monkeys, gophers, snake-ropes and fridges were just a small part of the problem. The story was uninteresting and the acting was pretty atrocious. I don't know what all the supporters of this movie were seeing, but all I saw on Harrison Ford's face was boredom, routine, and age.

Bottom line for me... This movie freaking ROCKS! My wife and I loved every minute of it in the theater and we went out and purchased the Target exclusive 2-DVD version on Tuesday for $22.99 + tax (and worth every penny!). We will be enjoying it again this weekend.

Really on the fence about this myself. I was sorely disappointed in the theatre, but watching it now on DVD, it stings a bit less. I see it more as Indy older and a bit slower, which in a way alleviates the fact that there's plenty less Indy-focused action in this one. Really I missed the fistfights, pretty sorely lacking. Even if you watch the animatics on disc 2, the pre-vis jeep fight with Indy and all the Russians looked more in tune with the trilogy than the finished film did, that really sucked when I saw that.

The ants were fine, and the other three took up possibly one minute of screen time total.

VVVV
You're right, this isn't the thread for movie discussion.

Guys, there's already a thread over in Movie Talk that discusses the merits (pro/con) of the movie. This thread is devoted to discussion of the DVD release.

Anyone pic up the Skull bust at Best Buy? Thoughts, pics (of the bust outside the box)?

I didn't know they had this policy? Is it new. This very thing happened to me when the 300 box set came out. You know the one that sold out within a couple hours of stores opening. They actually got a shipment in later in the week so I bought it online. Of course they didn't pull it off the floor. Luckily I had gone to pick it up that day expecting some best buy screw up and they had plenty on the floor. Seriously what's the point of doing in store pick up if they don't even pick it up? Or if they renege on their guarantee like CC.

But I digress, back to the DVD. I still haven't picked this up I'll might go tomorrow and see which version I want.

As for the skull statue its going to be about 4-5 inches tall but well made and finely detailed if sideshows previous reputation applies. People say it's too small but I think it's perfect as I wouldn't want a full size head. The iron man one was quite nice and actually even better out of the package as they got the paint exactly right with a nice car like luster. I would expect similar quality on this one. I just don't think i would really want a crystal skull for my collection. And the iron man dvd was wrapped separately so this one will probably as well so good for gift giving.

No, it is not new. They've had this policy for quite some time. I believe it was instated when they really started pushing "In Store Pick-Up" as an option. They've actually given me the $10.00 off, on three different occasions. Once, they had pulled the stuff I ordered, but, the lady couldn't find it. It took her about 10 minutes to find the order, which she found buried under some returns. In fact, she was not only so apologetic about it, but, on top of giving me $10.00 off my pick-up, but, she also gave me a $10.00 Best Buy Gift Card. The other two times, it was because they simply failed to pull my order. The great thing is, on each occasion, I didn't even have to mention the policy. They just gave it to me, for my inconvenience. It's a nice little policy.

Really? They never, ever have my orders pulled when I get there. So it is 8 minutes or less or $10 off?

It is actually one minute (5 minutes for larger items). Here are the details from the last E-mail I got from them for a Store Pick-Up.

Store Pickup Guarantee
We'll have your order ready in 1 minute (5 minutes for larger items) after you present this email or you get $10 off.*

*Store Pickup Guarantee Details
Present this email or a valid order number to the Customer Specialist at the BestBuy.com pickup counter, and in 1 minute we'll have your order prepared for pickup. Larger items, such as Major Appliances, Furniture and TVs order 20", require up to 5 minutes. If we fail to meet our promise well credit your order up to $10. One minute starts after you have presented your photo ID, purchasing credit card and this email or valid order number to us, and when Best Buy enters your order number into our computer system. Best Buy will track the time, which will end when you have the product in your possession. Wait time in line and the time to print your receipt not included. All credits will go back to the credit card or Gift Card used on the purchase. Orders less than $10 will be credited up to the amount of the purchase. Eligible only for customers who present their confirmation email or a valid order number at the counter. Orders where non-physical credit cards are used as payment (including but not limited to virtual or one-time use credit cards) are excluded from the guarantee. See a Customer Specialist for details
