Re: Upgrade and Save coming back! 1/13 - 2/2

Something interesting... I bought the Predator / Predator 2 release at Best Buy a couple days back, but my Predator disc is different / has a different silk screen.

Re: Upgrade and Save coming back! 1/13 - 2/2

None of my local stores show Dredd in stock either. If you search online there's lots of talk about people getting seemingly defective Dredd discs from Best Buy. The discs reportedly didn't play in...

Re: Upgrade and Save coming back! 1/13 - 2/2

I picked up the Predator / Predator 2 "Own the Moments" set . It did contain 2 discs, the Predator "Ultimate Hunter Edition" and Predator 2.

It's *very* possible I'm mistaken, but I also have a...

I "upgraded" from the 4-disc Kingdom of Heaven to the BD a year or two ago.

The audio-video quality is *far* better than the DVD... but I was disappointed in that they removed the overture and...

Re: Anyone sold to CashForDVDsAndGames.com?

Wow. Both NewTownVideo.com and CashForDVDsAndGames.com do offer some really good prices. I'd like to give these places a try.

Re: Amazon raised prices of EVERYTHING today

There was a decent price hike on many titles I wanted a few days ago as well.

(e.g. Been waiting for a good deal on Contact & Deep Impact BDs... went from about $16.99 to $19.99 & $20.XX.)

Re: Which Do You Collect More? DVDs/Blu-Rays or Video Games?

You might get a pretty lopsided answer in this forum.

I loved gaming back when I was young - in the 8-bit and 16-bit days.

Re: my blu-ray cases keep cracking

My experience is that it's semi-common. Not anywhere near the majority, but BD (and HD DVD) cases in general seem to be far more fragile than DVD cases are.

I own about 250 or so BD/HD now, and...

Re: Dolby TrueHD 2.0?

Surround sound in movies is a very recent innovation. Dolby Digital, DTS and SDDS only first showed up in theaters about 15 years ago... 1993 or so. I think Batman Returns and Jurassic Park were two...
