Thanks for posting! I purchased "Close Encounters" and "Almost Famous" from blahdvd for £17.98 (plus £1.50 shipping). I hope "CE3K" doesn't have any PAL-related playback issues on the bonus features. If not, I think this is quite a good deal.

But there's just too much whining on here when it comes to shipping. Either the free shipping is too slow or the fast shipping is too expensive. Personally I used to love this thread because every reply had a deal posted in it. Now it's clogged with shipping posts. It's almost as if we need a seperate thread where people can post the shipping deals they've found. The price of the item is all that should matter in this thread. Shipping costs are up to the buyer depending on how patient they are.

I highly concur. This thread used to be an every day thing for me. Now I barely come through 'cuz I don't care who bought what from a deal or how long something took to ship or the price of shipping.

It USED to be about the music, man!

If I wasn't into home theater, I'd have a whole lotta money.

OK, sorry, it's in-store only. The ad can be found in local newspapers:
http://local.ads.nwsource.com/ads/si...ys/frys_4page/
I found the ad in The Seattle Times, and used it at Best Buy for a price match (BB is a LOT closer to my house than Fry's), all I had to do was show them the ad.

I got:
Men in Black: $13.99
Hidalgo: $14.99

Exiled(HK) $22.44
http://www.dddhouse.com/v3/product_d...ProductID=8684
I think shipping is $3.85

In the end it's about the same as a domestic Fox or Paramount title. And this has 7.1MA

Two questions is this worth owning at that price, and will the movie put the MA track through its paces?

Trailer - it says Magnolia, maybe a domestic release will be somewhere down the line.
http://www.apple.com/trailers/magnolia/exiled/hd/

Ridiculous codec tier sig gone. Still AVC/24bit lossless fanboy.

Studio quality tier
Most Major studios>Small Studios>dogs>cats>Warner(the guys that do new movies)

Anyone know a good pre-order price for 21?

No electrons were harmed during the creation, transmission or reading of this posting. However, many were excited and some may have enjoyed the experience.

For what it's worth, Exiled was my favorite of the 200+ theatrical releases I saw in 2007. To reduce it to a tag line: Johnny To channels Sergio Leone and John Woo for Once Upon a Time in Macau.

I agree. And that includes shipping. If a BD costs $11 but shipping costs $10 then tha's not much of a deal.

I think the horse is dead, we can stop beating it now.

It has already been established that shipping costs should factor into online purchases, but we don't need 20 posts talking about the SPEED OF THE SHIPPING. Can we move on please???

The last month or so? IMO they've sucked ever since BD won the format war. I hardly buy anything anymore.
