Amazon has the Lord of the Rings trilogy on Blu-ray for $7.99 each. That's very hard to pass up...
The Fellowship of the Ring
The Two Towers
The Return of the King
Hell of a kick-off for Black Friday!
I can understand why many (or most) will be holding out for the extended versions, but that really is a heck of a deal. I noticed that one of the Black Friday ads (I think maybe Wal-Mart or Target or both) has these on sale Friday as well. Maybe it is just because they are older movies right now, and maybe out of the "attention" a bit, but it really seems like a steal for some really great movies in the HD format. I already paid more than this for them unfortunately, but it is nice to see them out there at a great price. I'll pick up the extended editions when they are released too, but I'll admit that I don't mind watching the "shorter" version sometimes too. I enjoyed the heck out of them in the theaters in that cut, and plus, with a little one it is tough to set aside 3-4 hours to watch movies like these the way it is.
Since we got a blu ray player I've tried to be much, much more selective in which movies we'd pick up for the format. I've got a little list in my head of which movies I would pick up again, even though we already had them on DVD, and these were towards the top.
