Planet of the Apes 5-film collection boxset is $29.99 (normally $39.99) till 12/29/11.

 

Set includes the following films each is separate BD keep cases...

 

  • Planet of the Apes (1968)
  • Beneath the Planet of the Apes (1970)
  • Escape from the Planet of the Apes (1971)
  • Conquest of the Planet of the Apes (1972)
  • Battle for the Planet of the Apes (1973)

 

Looks like this is mostly for in-store purchase because the website only has a barebones description under the SKU # 5513191, and it's backordered online.

 

Box art

 

This series contains some pretty graphic violence and adult themes btw, so it's not recommended for immature/younger viewers.

FYI, the Planet of the Apes boxset above is now only $19.99 at BB till 11-24 (same SKU #). Just got a $10 refund on my set to prove it. (Tks BB! cool.gif)

 

Picture and sound quality is fairly decent on this set, for older films. The first two films are on the brighter side. If you're using ~2.2 display gamma, I'd suggest bumping that up to at least the new standard of 2.4. The 4th film (Conquest of the PotA) is quite a bit darker than the others, and has some crushing of shadow detail, though that may be intentional for artistic reasons. Direction and cinematography are amazing on the first two films (particularly the first one).

 

Amazon also has the set marked down to $22.99.

post #34 of 124

In addition to PotA, the following boxsets are also $19.99 at BB this week...

 

  • Alien Anthology - Only seen the individual editions of Alien and Aliens so far. PQ was good on Alien, but less impressive on Aliens.
  • Clint Eastwood: Man with No Name Trilogy - Only film I've seen from this set is the individual ed. of Good, Bad & Ugly, and the PQ was only so-so imo (poor detail, rather washed out color).
  • Coen Bros. Collection
  • Die Hard Collection
  • Godfather Collection
  • Hannibal Lecter Collection
  • Robocop Collection
  • Rocky: Undisputed Collection
  • X-Men Trilogy Pack

 

And the Oceans 11/12/13 BD set is $9.99.

 

I wonder if any of these will be further discounted for BF? (BB won't pricematch BF prices btw, not even their own.)

I picked up season 1 Blu-ray of The Walking Dead today for $11.99 + tax at BB. It appears the LOTR Extended Box set is being cleaned out at the current price at most BBs. Have not seen that one in stock at any BB locally this week.
post #36 of 124

^ BB had the Extended LOTR boxset on sale for $39.99 on Monday only I believe. So that may be why they're cleaned out some places. I probably would have posted about it here, if I'd known in advance. Found out about it late Monday night about an hour before stores closed, but decided to pass because Target had the individual films for $10 each ($30 total). I've already triple-dipped on other versions of this set, so may try to hold out until the Extended Edition BDs dip below $10 each for my 4th dip. (I'd probably bite at $7.99 per film.)

 

FWIW, some details on the offers were/are posted in these threads...

Updated list above with some more titles. Looks like the $3.99/$7.99 discounts are still applicable today (11-24-12).

 

It wouldn't surprise me if some of the $7.99 films go even lower for Xmas.

Trollhunter, Secret of NIMH*, and Bridge on the River Kwai are currently $7.99. Superman/Shazam is $6.99.

BB has LOTR Extended Trilogy (SKU 2629119) for $49.99 for in-store purchase only.

 

Also, North by Northwest (SKU 7552099), Ben-Hur (SKU 5359149) and Casablanca (SKU 5211414) for $9.99. I believe these are all single-disc editions of the most recent releases. I picked up the 70th Ann. Ed. of Casablanca and watched it last night, and it looked pretty fantastic.

post #43 of 124

With the current $5 DVD tradein offer, that means $9.99 titles above are only $4.99... provided you can find them in stock! Stores near me are out of  the single-disc versions of NBNW and Ben-Hur, but they have Casablanca, which I highly recommend (esp. for $4.99!).

 

Also, Lawrence of Arabia is only $12.99 with DVD tradein.

Hmm, I remember posting on a similar thread awhile back about only being able to get a few movies due to a very limited selection at my local store, but right at the end of the sale I was at a different store that allowed me order a bunch of movies that were only available on-line and they even shipped them to my home.

Another thing I was curious about was whether they would accept Blockbuster rentals, what with their odd cases, but they took them without question.

At the time they all seemed like good deals to me, but fast forward to the holidays in general and BF in particular and virtually all of them were as cheap or cheaper [up to 1/2 price!], even the $4.99 ones, so wasted a bunch of DVDs that I could have sold otherwise, so debating what, if any, movies are worth gambling on.

Anyway, I lucked up on a store willing to deal [at least at the end], so maybe you can too.

Is it really that much better than the Turner Classic DVD release? Having seen the film at a local 'vintage' cinema back in the late '90s, it seems very film-like to me.

Just picked up a few titles using the Upgrade & Save program, including The Shawshank Redemption (steelbook) and L.A. Confidential for $5 each.

Upgrade & Save is about the only reason I ever step foot into a Best Buy anymore, but it was definitely worth it this time. May have to go back in a day or two and pick up a few more.

^ Roger that, Steeb.

And I don't trade in anything that might fetch decent cash/credit elsewhere (at a 2nd-hand store, for example), so I'm not kicking myself later on for giving up something "precious". smile.gif

 

FYI, BB's extended holiday return policy doesn't end until Jan 24th, so if you want to return or "price adjust" something purchased before the holidays, it's still possible for a few more days (assuming your return privileges haven't been revoked for misuse). From BB's website:

 

Quote:
Purchases made between November 4, 2012, and December 24, 2012, can be returned through January 24, 2013.

 

Unfortunately, I moved a little too quickly on Casablanca, and paid $10 for it last week. So hopefully my local BB will let me do a DVD trade-in retroactively. They're usually pretty good about stuff like that if you ask nicely, and plead a little. smile.gif And if not, then I may buy another copy (w/tradein), and return the unopened disc with my old receipt.

I have not seen any of the DVD editions of Casablanca, so I can't really compare. But the Blu-ray edition looks quite good. If you're using a TV that's 50" or larger, I'm pretty sure you'd notice an improvement in the level of detail, esp. on exterior/daylight scenes. Most of the interiors are a bit darker and grainier though. The Blu-ray is hard-matted to a 1.37 ratio, which might be another factor to consider if you're not a fan of pillarboxing.

In addition to the DVD tradein program, BB is also offering $5 (minimum) gift cards in exchange for "small electronic devices" until 2-2-13. More details here...

 

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Computers-Promotions/regularCat%3Apcmcat293300050004/pcmcat293300050004.c?id=pcmcat293300050004

 

The gift cards can be used for any purchase (not just movies), and can be combined with $5 DVD tradein or phone upgrade* discounts on Blu-rays. I traded in 2 ancient cell phones for $10 in gift cards. That plus a $5 phone discount brought my cost on Lawrence of Arabia BD down to $3 + tax. smile.gif

 

The electronic devices are a bit of a hassle though, because they'll ask for personal info and a thumb print (for protection against stolen goods). You should also remove any personal data, SIM cards etc. from such devices before trading them in.

 

(*Check to see if you're eligible for an upgrade on your cell phone, and you also get a $5 coupon off a Blu-ray... no tradein required, thru Feb. 2nd.)

Yes, that’s the one, thanks! I managed to miss it in a search.

Correct, though didn’t know it until I saw it listed on the printout in each mail package.

BDs also?! I have some BB rentals I wouldn't mind parting with. In my ignorance, I bought a bunch back during the 2011 holiday season only to find out the hard way that some didn't even have chapter selection and apparently no HD sound either.

Worse, even at $4-5/ea., by the end of 2012 almost all of the retail versions were near/at these prices, so except for getting Avatar and a few others that are still fairly high priced, a relatively expensive lesson for me.

I figure even the seemingly super deals I got this year will be overpriced next year, but frankly, I’m tired of bargain hunting, so once I trade the few ‘el cheapo’ DVDs I have left, I’m done till next holiday season.

Yeah, me too, but the BD pricing collapse has been far faster than I believed possible. Apparently there’s even more profit in them than I assumed. Ditto DVDs.

That, or manufacturers and/or retailers are in a ~ ‘break even’ mode just to keep as many plants/stores open and workers employed as practical.

OK, I was just curious, I’d already planned to buy it when the price got lower, so may use up one of my freebie DVDs for it. I have an old 65” RPTV, which doesn't have very deep blacks to start with and worse, has light gray bars on each side of a full frame movie, so made a black mask to suspend over it to keep them from washing out B&W movies too much.

How ancient? They wouldn't take my 1994 Audiovox. The lady almost dropped it because it's so heavy compared to today's phones.

Sweet! I'm looking forward to comparing it to my Superbit DVD when the price drops enough.

Interesting. The link above says "working or not", so I assumed they'd take just about anything. Maybe '94 is too far back in the cellphone stone age though. Fwiw, one of the phones I traded was a 10+ year old Ericsson.

I'll be interested to hear your opinion on it. The BD edition of LoA is very detailed, though there is some subtle ringing/haloing visible at times on high contrast edges. The color and contrast also seem a bit "tweaked" to me, but also quite good. Audio also sounds a bit distorted at times on my equipment, but still fairly impressive for such an old film. I was very glad to add such a high quality presentation of this to my small, but growing BD collection.

post #54 of 124

If you happen to be near a Best Buy today, it's worth stopping by because there are a wide variety of discounts and deals going at the moment (too many for me to keep track of actually). And at least a couple of them (such as the 3 for $20 offer) may be ending today.

 

A few of the offers have already been mentioned over here, but I'll try to recap those here as well, in case anyone missed em. Some of these were Father's Day promos and may end today, but I'm not exactly sure which ones...

 

2 for $9.99 SAVESTATION BOGO

(Probably already ended.)

 

First, it looks like the 2/$10 SaveStation Bogo which started a few weeks ago has probably ended, because the link for that offer is now dead.

 

$9.99 & $7.99 MOVIES

(End date unknown.)

 

...However all of the SaveStation titles are still $9.99 each. In addition, there's a veritable cornucopia of other titles also marked down to $9.99 or in some cases $7.99 at the moment. Availability will vary from store to store, but many of the more popular titles on this list should be available in stores...

 

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olstemplatemapper.jsp?_dyncharset=ISO-8859-1&_dynSessConf=4770130994143894081&id=pcat17080&type=page&lcn=Movies+%26+TV+Shows&sc=movieSP&st=processingtime%3A%3E1900-01-01&usc=cat02015&cp=1&sp=-bestsellingsort+skuid&nrp=50&qp=ccat02015%23%23-1%23%23-1%7E%7Eq70726f63657373696e6774696d653a3e313930302d30312d3031%7E%7Ef535%7C%7C426c752d7261792044697363%7E%7Ef383%7C%7C4f6e2053616c65%7E%7Enf1%7C%7C2437202d2024392e3939&add_to_pkg=false&pagetype=listing&gf=y

 

Some (or many) of the titles above could be a bit dated btw, such as the 2007 Die Hards. So I'd check reviews first. (There's a more recent 2013 Die Hard boxset available below for $29.99, for example.)

 

$3 FOR $14.99 or $2 FOR 12.99

(In store only. Ends 7-20-13.)

 

Before you drop your ten bucks though, you should know that some of the $9.99 & $7.99 titles above can also be purchased at 3 for $14.99 (~$5 a piece), or at 2 for $12.99 (~$6.50 a piece). This deal runs until 7-20-13. There's no link for this on BB's website, so this appears to be for in-store purchase only. Here's a list of titles eligible for both the 3/$14.99 and 2/$12.99 offers...

 

American Gangster

A Beautiful Mind

Casino

Catwoman

Collateral Damage

Copland

Crank

$9.99 STEELBOOKS

(End date unknown, but may be soon/today.)

 

There are also a number of steelbooks still marked down to $9.99. This was a Father's Day offer, so it will probably be ending soon, if not in fact today (6-22). Most of these should be available in-store on a special steelbook display/rack.

 

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/searchpage.jsp?_dyncharset=ISO-8859-1&_dynSessConf=4770130994143894081&id=pcat17071&type=page&ks=960&st=Favorites_on_Steelbook_107815&sc=Global&cp=1&sp=-bestsellingsort+skuid&qp=crootcategoryid%23%23-1%23%23-1%7E%7Eq4661766f72697465735f6f6e5f537465656c626f6f6b5f313037383135%7E%7Enccat02015%23%230%23%23z&list=y&usc=All+Categories&nrp=36&fs=16&iht=n

 

DISCOUNTED BOXSETS

(End date unknown.)

Harry Potter $69.99

LOTR Extended $59.99

CRITERION 20% to 40% DISCOUNT

(Online only. End date unknown, but should be soon.)

 

The Criterion discounts are still in effect, at least through today. I'm not sure how much longer this will last, but it's been running for a couple weeks, so it'll probably end soon, if not in fact today (6-22). This is for online purchase only (though it's possible some stores might match these prices... if they actually have any of these in stock, which is highly doubtful).

The Criterion DVDs are also on sale. If you want to see those, then just remove the "Format: Blu-ray Disc" option from the "You've Selected" menu on the upper left side of the page.

 

OTHER DISCOUNTED STUFF

 

There are other deals as well including some Superman-related stuff, but I simply couldn't keep track of them all.

 

MORE STRINGENT RETURN POLICIES

 

I'll repeat the warning from the other deals thread as well that BB is cracking down significantly on returns. It's now 15 days for everything (movies included), unless you're a Reward Zone Premiere Silver member (60 days).

 

And your return privileges may be revoked for 90 days if you do only a few returns within a 6-month period, esp. if you have a history of making alot of returns. So check out the reviews on the items above before laying down your cash or credit card.

 

They use your driver's license to track the number of returns you make btw. And I wonder about the ethics/legality/privacy of that.

ADU - meticulous footwork. That info should help a lot of members today. Good job.

Thanks smudge981!

 

I contacted a store near me today btw, and they confirmed that the 2/$9.99 SaveStation BOGO is indeed over (as already noted above). The other offers should be good to go though.

Slightly OT, but Walmart has an "exclusive" Die Hard boxset for $39.99 that includes all 5 films. The 4-film set above is in a more sturdily constructed box though, with an extra behind-the-scenes disc, I believe.

Took advantage of Best Buy's "3 for $14.99" offer with free shipping. I was able to pick up three that were on my list - "The King's Speech", "Braveheart" and "A Beautiful Mind." FYI - sales tax amounted to $1.16. Even so, it worked out to about $5.38 a movie.

^ Nice. So are you sayin that the 3 for $14.99 deal works online as well?

 

I noticed there were two different "SKUs" for A Beautiful Mind btw, one @ $8.99 (from 2011) and another @ $14.99 (from 2012). I think the $8.99 SKU is in the 3/$14.99 deal. And the $14.99 SKU was in the 3/$20 deal. It looks like the BD transfers are probably the same, but the 2012 version adds a DVD (and new slipcover). Blu-ray.com reports some noticeable haloing/EE at times on this, which is not unusual for Universal catalog releases I guess (though a little surprising for such a recent BD release).

 

Keeping track of all the different versions/SKUs on some of these films can be a real nightmare. There are like 5 bajillion (<- a slight exaggeration) versions of the Die Hard films out, for example, in different standalone and box configurations. The more I looked, the more versions kept popping up... (guess that's why they call him "die hard" wink.gif). No idea which are best.

 

I'm still sorting through the new BB deals btw, and will try to post another update in a couple days. It looks like the Criterion discounts have expired though, and probably also the 3/$20 deal. The other offers still appear good though, including the $9.99 steelbooks, $8 Hangover cash, boxset discounts, 3/$14.99, 2/$12.99....

 

As mentioned above, there are several other boxsets discounted at BB right now, including the Mel Brooks 9-film Collection for $34.99, the Forever Marilyn 7-film Collection for $29.99, and the Robocop Trilogy for $24.99, to name just a few more.

 

I was tempted to grab the Brooks set, but already have a couple of those films, and the only other one I really wanted was High Anxiety... so I passed. (Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein are both decent xfers, though YF is on the grainy/contrasty side.)

 

My review of the Marilyn set can be found here. PQ is sort of average on some of the films, but Marilyn looks very good in most of em, and I enjoyed that set alot, esp. the two Wilder flicks: Some Like It Hot & 7 Year Itch.

 

BB also has the Back to the Future Trilogy for $29.99. But Target currently has that set for only $19.99 until Saturday (6-29), while supplies last. (There are a couple Targets in my area, and the first one I went to was already sold out.) Not super-high on my "to-get list", but I always enjoyed those flicks when they came on TV... so I snagged that one. Will post some thoughts on AV quality later.

Yes, the offer is good online. "Why use up gas if they're willing to ship" I always say.

Picked-up the Die Hard collection when he went down to $19.99 a couple of months ago.

Tempted to snatch the "Back To The Future" trilogy at Target.
