Re: Big Lots Blu-rays

I visited my local BL this morning and they had definitely restocked, with dozens more BD disks. But most were of the very same titles they had before. I bought the lone TKAMB (non-digibook) and...

Re: Big Lots Blu-rays

I saw the 4K release of E.T. at a Big Lots on Wednesday night for $5. Thinking that had to be somebody's mistake. I also noted a Donnie Yen: 3 Movie Collection DVD boxed set, also for $5.

Re: What's so great about-In Store Pick-up/Grocery Pick-up?

I used in-store pickup at Lowes a couple weeks ago. I was trying to find a replacement door sweep for my parents' storm door, and while both Lowes near me allegedly had them, neither could locate any...

Re: Just got an empty box from eBay!?!

I guess they weren't something collectable, i.e. Star Wars?



Yeah, that's...very...strange. I don't suppose you noticed any, err, white powder?

At the very least, I'd contact EBay. Maybe...

Re: "Region Free" Blu Ray Player... Not Region free anymore???

If any disks still play normally, then the basic player seems intact. Is this a "region-free from the factory" player or a "region-free modified" player? Of the Region A disks that don't play, do you...

Re: Rumor: Sears prepares to file for bankruptcy

Re: It's Another DeepDiscount 15% sale

I've wanted to get the FTC involved for years. Truth in packaging. I shouldn't need x-ray vision to know what's inside the shrinkwrap.

Re: What have you upgraded?

I haven't consciously upgraded that much. The original Universal Monsters BD set was mostly an upgrade, some silent film purchases were, too. Honestly, many of my upgrades came from replacing a $3...

Re: Rumor: Sears prepares to file for bankruptcy

But if Lampert succeeds, I assume Sears and K-Mart are still going under? Or will he be choosy in which real estate he sells/develops? Does anybody know why he wants the real estate?

Re: Hamilton Books (Blu-ray Bargains)

Re: Rumor: Sears prepares to file for bankruptcy

Okay. I wasn't sure if there might be some accounting arrangement that could (temporarily?) save K-Mart. That's gonna be a lot of vacant real estate. :(

And thanks for the play-by-play, BTW.

Re: Are you purchasing 4K UHD discs even though you don't have a 4K TV or player?

Answering the poll question: no. I don't like being nudged up. BD is fine with me, I don't expect to upgrade past my 46" HD TV anytime soon, and my wants list (particularly for <= 2008 DVD's) is...
