Ditto. I have all the ones I want already. I wish they'd offer the same prices on the titles that Fry's has been selling.

I was really hoping for Edward Scissorhands (and maybe Robocop). Thats the only other Fox title I want that I refuse to pay $30 for.

I thought the movie was decent. 2 1/2 stars out of 4. The transfer is terrific though. And the DTS HD-MA track(at least the DTS core of it) was great as well. If you're a fan, it's worth picking up, despite Fox leaving off most of the extras as usual.

Is the ROCKY transfer worth the upgrade? I already own two DVD versions.

I remember renting it last year when I had the Samsung BD 1000 player. It didn't impress me too much. But part of that problem may have been that the Sammy was a POS player. I would probably notice a difference now on the 2 players I have.

At first I got excited until I realized Flight of the Phoenix is the remake.

If you like action movies then it is a solid blind buy. Stay away from Transporter 2, though.

Picked up Ice Age: The Meltdown. I've been looking for a good price on that for awhile.

Well, I bit on The Usual Suspects. I had actually sold off my DVD copy and I figured I'd be kicking myself tomorrow for not getting it.
