That's a pretty good offer from Paramount. TF is the movie that makes me want a Blu-Ray player (that and Indy) since Star Wars isn't going to be out anytime soon.

I can't stand 2 movie DVDs for some reason despite the deal.  What the hell does Halloween 3 have to do with the rest of the movies for that matter?  Anyone bite on the Ultimate Nightmare Before Christmas Edition?

Agreed. Looking forward to picking it up on Bluray. That in addition to the Dark Knight, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Clone Wars, and a couple of others have my movie budget pretty full for the rest of the year.

Same here on the Iron Man Blu-ray.

I also ordered (on Blu) Shrek the Third, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and The Thing.  The real kicker is 2 weeks from now when Mongol, Casino, Indiana Jones, Eastern Promises, Poltergeist, and War Inc all come out on the same day.   :-[

Getting Ironman for $13.99 tomorrow at Circuit City.  Not biting on a PS3 until the price comes down some more.  Not even sure how I'd manage the transistion from buying DVDs to Bluray when that time comes for me - let alone having to rebuy a small chunk of my collection.   :-\

Definitely planning on picking up Iron Man tomorrow or Wednesday, depending on when I get to the store.  On a side note, how many of you opt for the 2 disk editions of these movies - or do you stick to the cheaper single disk ones.  For movies like this (Iron Man, Indy, etc.) I usually go for the deluxe editions, but while looking at the ads from the paper this weekend, my wife asked me why I wouldn't just get that single versions and if the extras were worth the extra $7-$10.  Does anyone opt for the single (or cheaper) releases?

Depends on the film and what those extras are.  Some of the recent releases have just had the digital copy but the rest of the content was almost identical to the cheaper, single disk release.  Those really aren't worth it to me.

Now, Iron Man, Batman, probably Indy, Star Wars: The Clone Wars...I'll being buying the deluxe releases of those as they're almost a collectible to me.  Smaller films, like Forgetting Sarah Marshall (which also comes out tomorrow), I'm not looking to spend a ton of money on extras for them as I just want the movie.  I probably won't buy deluxe editions, if offered, of Hancock, Wanted or the Hellboy film either.

Then there are the deluxe, deluxe releases like the Iron Man and Indy sets with the Sideshow pieces in them or the Lord of the Rings sets with the Weta pieces.  Those I rarely buy but will sometimes.  I bought all three of the LoTR sets and I'm thinking about the Indy set.  One of the coolest ones was the Da Vinci Code release with the working cryptex in it.  Worst one I bought was the last Harry Potter film with the Death Eater mask.  It looked good in the store so I bought it but it wasn't that nice once you got it open.

Unless the extra is just a crappy digital copy, I usually opt for the Special Editions. It's weird, because I usually don't even bother watching the second discs. I just like having it.

I'll go for the nice one if it has something worthwhile that isn't on the other one - to me that means deleted scenes or alternate cuts of the film.  With Blu-ray though, most of the time all the extras are included since there's so much space on the discs.
