It's an expensive week coming up for blu-ray. :-[

I just put in an order for

American Gangster
Eastern Promises
Indiana Jones KOTCS
Mongol

And I'm passing on War Inc., Casino, and Poltergeist for now.

What I typically do is get the 1-disc (for most movies I will never touch the extras) or hold out for a loss-leader sale where I can get the Special Edition for around the same price as the regular (that's how I picked up Lord of War, for example).

Only for favorite or "event" movies like LOTR, SW, Kingdom of Heaven, etc. do I bother with the loaded editions at full price. For KOTCS I'll hold out for a holiday sale until I can get the 1-disc for $10 or so.

Single disc Indy for me today.  Got totally burnt out after disc 1 of Ironman and I know that I'll only watch the other disc once - once I get around to setting aside the time.

I picked up the Best Buy collector set.  It's a nice piece.

Picked up the Target exclusive KOTCS with the book-style packaging. It's very nice.  :)

I'm not sure what happened... but Amazon had Die Hard on Blu-ray for $6.95 just now.  I got an order in, and was going to post it here, but about a minute after I put in the order, I checked the page again to get the link, and the price was back to $25.95.

My pending order still has $6.95 on it though.   ;D

I didn't pick anything up today, but I did see the "new" versions of the OT and PT on the shelves at a local Target ... one week earlier than they're supposed to be.

Picked up Twighlight Zone: The Movie at Best Buy for $6.99.  Always loved the flick(s) since I was a kid.  Finally a proud owner.

Has anyone on here discovered Redbox dvd rental machines yet?  They've been around a while, but we just got them in our town.  Very cool...swipe your debit card, pick a movie, machine spits it out.  $1.00 a day, and the best part is you can return the disc to ANY Redbox location.  The discs have a chip on them so they're identified with your account and the machines are networked...at least that's how I assume it works.
This sticker is dangerous and inconvenient, but I do love Fig Newtons.

We have Red Box machines around my area.  I know that the Wegmans grocery stores have them in my city, not sure if they're anywhere else.  My buddy swears by them, he picks up movies on the way home from work all the time from his store.
