Wow, I hope I get Accepted and Fast Times, those were two I've been waiting to get dirt cheap to pick up. lol

First round I picked up Italian Job, Pitch Black, Full Metal Jacket, Frighteners, and Troy and for my second batch I picked out Aeon Flux, The Thing, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Firewall, and Black Rain. Hopefully Firewall and Black Rain get subbed out.

Ditto! I would love for ANY of my titles to get subbed out for these, except for The Thing, but based on the above I don't think I'll be getting that one. This is my 3rd set of freebies, so I already got the ones I really wanted except for The Thing...

I just called and they said they can't tell me what movies are being substituted so I guess I'll have to wait another few weeks to find out what I'm getting.

You might want to call again and ask for the substitute titles for the five titles that you ordered.

Back on March 4th I was given the following list:

1) The Thing--->Replaced by Pitch Black, Born on the 4th of July, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, White Noise or Monthy Python and the Meaning of Life)

2) Charlie and the Chocolate Factory--->Replaced by Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix)

3)The Frighteners--->Replaced by Doom, Accepted, or Jarhead)

4) Darkman--->Replaced by Doom, Waist Deep, Bulletproof or Red Dragon.)

5) Italian Job---> Still shipping, No substitutes yet.

Of course, they can't tell you the particular substitute you will actually receive for any selected title.

Thanks, but the phone seems to be occupied all the time. Is that normal?

Bah, I'm going to be bummed if I get Harry Potter. Out of the titles getting subbed I just want Accepted and Fast Times.

I haven't had any problems with the number being busy but I've only called three times so I dunno.

Mailed 2/15/08 (waited since last October before mailing it)

I asked for:
Babel (got it)
The Thing
The Frighteners
Full Metal Jacket
Dark Man

Substitutes:
Fast Times at Ridgemont High (have on DVD, unopened)
Jarhead (have on DVD, unopened)
Blood Diamond (have on Blu-ray, unopened)
Spy Game (have on DVD, watched)

So other than Babel, nothing new. But since I plan on not owning an HD DVDs long-term, I guess it doesn't matter. 3 of 5 had UPC slashes.

Still waiting on the Blu-rays (sent the form at the same time).

Got mine today finally. The only one I got that I asked for was Babel.

I got:
Babel (the one I wanted)
Spy Game (really don't want at all)
Fast Times at Ridgemont High (loved the movie but have no interest on owning it in HD when I have the standard)
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (already have the HD and standard)
Jarhead (have the 2 disc standard)

Really sucks, I wanted The Thing and The Frighteners and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory a lot, but alas I get stuck with Spy Game. Anybody want to trade anything I would be more than willing.

On the Canadian side of things, looks like my 5 will be shipping soon. But from what they told me when I called the info line, I won't be getting Pitch Black and The Frighteners. Instead those are being substituted with The Hulk and Van Helsing. If I hadn't called in they would have substituted The Chronicles of Riddick for Pitch Black, which would have really sucked because I already have it (specifically chose TCoR as one of my free HD DVDs (when I bought my A3) because I planned on getting PB free via the rebate!!)

If anyone is looking to trade titles they didn't want from their rebates, I have sealed Bourne Identity and Transformers discs (have "promo" stick on front) that came with my A30 that I may be able to trade (check my signature for what I already own).

My order that was sent off on Feb 6th came today:
I asked for:
Aeon Flux
Pitch Black
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
The Frighteners
Darkman

I recieved:
Aeon Flux
Dantes Peak
Harry Potter: Order of the Pheonix
Bulletproof
Jarhead

I am willing to trade Jarhead and Dante's Peak since I already own those from the Amazon B1G1 sale last Jan. Both are good movies.
both upc's are lined through. New and still sealed. The cases are in excellent shape.
Just PM me your list of any sealed HD-DVD's or Blu-Ray's you are willing to trade.

I am now just waiting for the last 5 free that I got with my A-35 so I may have more to trade when those arrive.

I got mine today as well.

Requested:
Italian Job
Frighteners
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Pitch Black
Darkman

Received:
Italian Job
Mummy
12 Monkeys
Harry Potter
Bourne Supremacy

All in all I'm pretty happy with the replacements even though I have them all on standard DVD. I really wanted Pitch Black and Frighteners (the only one of the bunch I don't already own on any format) but I'm sure they'll all be on Blu-ray soon enough.

Italian Job
Bulletproof
Doom
Swordfish
Streets of Fire (WTF is this? )
Yep, those are mostly stinkers alright. At least I knew going in that things would get ugly since HD-DVD had already been declared dead. The one disc I really wanted was The Thing so I went ahead and bought it knowing that I would somehow get screwed out of it in the 5 Free deal. I figure since I liked the five I did get enough to own them on DVD I can't really complain about a free upgrade.
