Dammit! Once again, I rue the fact there are no Wal-Marts in NYC. Some great titles in that list.

Frys 2 for 27 specials were cheaper than this but if you don't have a Frys, have at it!

Why do I feel this will be a heavy YMMV situation?

I'd love to get Big Lebowski from that list but that sale won't be on in Canada.

With tax that's only a couple bucks cheaper than I could get them for every day at Amazon, but still a great deal for those who need them.

I assume FMJ will be the original release and not the new one.

Walmart is supposed to begin some of their Black Friday pricing early this year. These HD DVD titles are part of that. Walmart's website tomorrow is supposed to list the other items as part of their "secret sale". Supposedly, they will be getting shipments of these movies for Friday.

My Wal Mart only has about 8 HD-DVDs. Not many from those titles. Oh they also have about 25 Blu Ray movies.

There are some good movies on that list. I do wish The Thing was on there. Thanks OP for the heads up!

The Wal-Mart closest to me stocks a grand total of 2 HD DVDs and about siz or seven Blu-Rays. I guess they go by demographics when deciding how much to stock. Too bad the per capita income of Cecil County, Md. is so low.

Mine has an OK selection but the only thing on that list that remotely interest me is The Italian Job, but I already own the SD copy and don't need to spend $15 for HD. If Batman Begins were on there, which I realize would only be $3-4 off, I'd probably pick that up.

I'd love to get Clerks II and Lucky Number Slevin for that price, but I'm in Canada. Lame.

DAMMIT! I just got Lebowski!

Could go for Unforgiven and 12 Monkeys. Are these titles worth it in HD? I had the 2-disc SE of the former and never bought 12 Monkeys after all these years.

EDIT: Didn't notice Casino on there. Another possibility too.

I guess the sale wasn't so secret.

Most people at Walmart can't even spell "HD DVD", let alone, know what it is.

BUT THAT'S GOOD FOR YOU!!!!

I'd Highly Recommend Unforgiven and Backdraft. These titles are not so popular but the picture is a shitload better than the originals.

Pulse
Sea Biscuit
Unforgiven

Are mine...but I doubt my local Wal-Mart's will be running this deal, as they both hardly have any HD.

There is also a very unsubstaniated rumor that there will be a Toshiba HD A2 HD DVD player for $99. I wouldn't hold my breath though.

There will be a Acer Laptop for $348 though.

Here is a link to Wal-Marts secret sale web page:

I see a few there that I would pick up. I don't know how our selection is at the local wal-mart. I set foot in there as little as possible, but maybe this friday I'll make an exception to check it out. Any idea if this will apply at midnight? Edit: Looks like 8am.
