No thankfully its not. The synopsyis tells you everything you should want to know bout the film. Its a movie set in Australia, full of amazing cinematogrophy(should look especially good in 1080p). Excellent film with good acting all around. Pretty violent if I do say so. Looks like a steal for $14.99.

If you're gonna see the new MUMMY, check CC's $19.95 price with movie ticket; like getting the BD for $12.95!

Here's to deeper black and higher contrast on a 120" HP screen.

Of course that was a joke. When it's small, the picture on IMDB (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0421238/) looks kind of like David Spade.

I never heard of it before, but it sounds really good. "Rated R for strong grisly violence" - That's all I need to know.

Borders began a new website recently, independent of amazon. They currently have a whopping 40%-Off coupon (BC4777) that you can use towards 2 items. I pre-ordered the Godfather Coppola Collection for $61.79 (they list original price at $102.99 even though amazon lists it as $124.99).

They also have Baby Mama for $24, Leatherheads for $24, Sweeney Todd for $24.59, Jerry Maguire and Rudy for $17.39 each, the Omen Collection for $75.59 (all after the discount, of course)...and as long as the order is over $25 there's free shipping! And their shipping is pretty quick once the package is sent.

For those like me still sitting on Borders gift cards, this is the best coupon code I've seen. They even have the Heroes sets available, Season 1 for $61.79 and Season 2 for $38.39!

As long as it doesn't have a hokey ending like 3:10 to Yuma, then I'll definitely be picking it up.

When am I going to learn... always check the coupon before wasting lots of valuable time browsing.

40% Off List Price Any One Item - Unless Better Online Discount Already Applied

And, no -- you don't need to order 2 items. But you'll only qualify for free shipping if your total is greater than $25.

So what's the problem? All the prices with this discount beat amazon's regular prices which are 30% off. I clearly stated in the original post that the prices listed were all after the discount.

When I click on that link it doesn't specify blu-ray as the format, just DVD.

The UPC listed is definitely the one for the Blu-ray edition.

Also, the Godfather set is listed in the category, "DVD - Blu Ray & HDTV - Blu-Ray", so it's obviously the correct version.

Sometimes titles are difficult to find because most of their upcoming BD discs aren't included in the "Upcoming Releases" section in Blu-Ray. You need to search individually for them. Recent additions include Romancing the Stone & Jewel Of the Nile, Forgetting Sarah Marshall (though I'm waiting for the Judd Apatow 3-pack), Sweeney Todd, The Godfather set, Leatherheads, Adventures Of Robin Hood, Baby Mama, Risky Business...

They also have the Universal Action 3-Pack with U-571, End Of Days, Miami Vice (http://www.borders.com/online/store/...u=025195046022) which will be $35.99 after the discount!

I' sure I and many others appreciate the information about the coupon and highlights of movie prices that beat Amazon (with the coupon). You obviously put some effort into providing the information. I know it's appreciated!!!

I almost cried at the pump last Friday. $76 to fill the tank...makes BR prices seem reasonable. Just another reason to enjoy a the "theater experience" in the home. (Along with the couple that brought their toddler to Hellboy showing Saturday night...the kid should be in bed and the audience shouldn't have to endure a crying child-felt bad for the kid).

Oh well, I'll use the border discount wisely to help off-set higher gas prices.

I agree about the child. Inexcuseable to bring him/her to that type of showing. I get to go "out" about once every few months. The rest of the time I am with my children, putting them to bed at a decent hour, and not letting them watch horror type movies beforehand.

As for the gas prices making everything else look cheaper. Ummm no, I disagree. Sometimes it does the opposite. "Should I buy that BR movie from Borders?... oh wait, I can't because gas costs me $300 a month." .

Thanks for the Borders coupon. Was a bear to get it to work but after deleting all the cookies and temp files from a previous browsing visit, the coupon worked (was previouly getting an "expired" message). Checkout was horribly slow and pages hung there too.

Another one I found that I was excited to get is the Judd Apatow Unrated Blu-Ray Collection (Knocked Up, 40 Year, & Sarah Marshall). For some reason it is incorrectly titled the Sarah Marshall Collection, but the UPC is correct and list of $82.99 is close to the advertised $89.99. After coupon before tax is $49.79.
