Risky Business, an old favorite of mine, is $4.99 at Amazon

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00168OIP8/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

For those of you who have it, is the AV quality good enough to warrant getting it? Seems like pro reviewers have said average quality at best!?

FYI, BB has it for the same price on a special $4.99 display with some other films (though the selection isn't terribly great).

 

It's not the best transfer, but was definitely good enough to add this classic to my collection. Blacks are a bit elevated and inconsistent, and detail is on the softer/coarser/grainier side (which some may actually like). Color is a little muddy at times (due in part to the elevated blacks), but reasonably ok overall. If the elevated blacks really bother you, you can fix that by dropping the black level setting on the display or player a bit lower than usual.

I was at my local Costco in Frederick MD on Saturday and they had a number of BluRay movies (including a few relatively new ones) for $9.99 and a number of older ones for $8.99 and $7.99. However, I've noticed that the selection varies wildly by store, so YMMV.

Was in at Costco this afternoon. They had a couple of movie blow-outs at around $6.50 including "Field of Dreams." Picked up "The Dark Knight Rises" for $9.99. YMMV.

While I encourage everyone to buy it at a B&M like Target where convenient, amazon is matching.

for those that have been holding out on the Alien Anthology, $19.96 at Amazon, today only!
post #14935 of 14986
Deep Discount (http://www.deepdiscount.com/) is having their periodic "extra 25% off" sale on selected items, marked with a red tag. Code BIGSALE at checkout. Thru 11/18.

Many prices are only so-so, but they are beating Amazon for some titles. For example, The Vincent Price Collection is $44.02, a good price. (At Amazon: $71.97, although I think it's been lower).

Irritatingly: if you maintain a wish list at DD to keep track of things, the sale status is not indicated on the list. You have to check every item by hand.
