With those prices, I'm really considering:

Sahara
Payback
Top Gun
FACE/OFF
Disturbia
Flags

Does anyone know if the picture quality is that much beautiful or is it just dvd-esque?

I have a few backordered at DDD, so I may just take the ad over the Circuit City and see if I can get them pricematched plus the extra 10%.

I'm going to Fry's after my boring lecture (I'm 45 minutes into it, only 135 more to go).

I'll check out if there are any additional deals.

Anchorman and Old School at that price is pretty good. I might have to pick them up.

Shipping showed up as $6.93 for me whether I had 2 or 5 titles in my cart. Anyway for $10 each I picked up:

Anchorman
Old School
Tomb Raider
Payback
We Were Soldiers

PQ on most of those were OK at best according to reviews, but that's a good price and I'm not sure if those Ferrell flicks will show up on BD any time soon

Memorize this list ladies and gentlemen, these titles are ALL available at Fry's for $9.99 and that price is permanent as of today. This sale doesn't end until Thursday, it's until they get rid of their inventory.

I picked up:
- Anchorman
- Disturbia
- Face/Off
- Flags of Our Fathers
- Mission: Impossible
- Mission: Impossible II
- Old School

I wanted to pick-up The Untouchables and The Warriors, but my Fry's didn't have it.

On a side-note, all Paramount HD-DVDs that aren't on the $9.99 and $16.99 list are all now $19.99 -- this includes recent releases like the two disc Zodiac.

Fry's in San Jose, CA (off Brokaw Rd.) had all of the titles listed in this thread. All were marked with respective sale signs.

I picked up Sahara, Old School and Tomb Raider. I was thinking about picking up The Warriors and Aeon Flux, but I didn't feel like upgrading titles I already had.
