And today, I got another 17 for $0.99 each on the final day of the super-blowout sale (the 5-for-$20 is still going another week I think)...
So, I've got a bunch to watch... 33 movies in the last week, of which I've only watched Sky High and She's Out of My League (both of which worked fine).
Oh, and I already owned Race to Witch Mountain, and it played fine way way back when I originally watched it... but I can't remember what the current firmware was back then since I have had that movie for a while.
I did pick up a few titles that I wonder if will have issues... Nightmare on Elm St, Clash of the Titans (new version) and Sherlock Holmes. Those are all Warner, and I believe Sherlock is one that is known to have audio issues?
I'm hoping I'm mostly safe on the rest... but I will post as I watch if I have any issues with any of the ones I bought.
And I thought I had gone crazy. I picked up another eight between Saturday night and Sunday. I did not bother stopping by yesterday and probably should have. There are several I should have waited on, but I was surprised what sold out soon and what did not. If they marked them down to a buck, I'm sure the last few I might want are gone now. They were all ones I have already rented or haven't got around to yet and I avoided the ones that are in redbox, except for a few I wanted to own. So I think I got 22, including 2 somewhat rare ones that I am selling. I've had to place 2 orders for bd cases due to this. I hate the DVD style ones that bb puts their movies in. I'm also glad I did not pick up more to sell, there is sure to be a flood of these on the various online outlets due to this.
I think I actually rented witch mountain at some point and not worried about playability of older Disney titles, that was never a problem until recently and still is not with 1.4. The others you mention load and play fine, however you may or may not have audio drops in 60 fps, in 24 fps you should not. The menu (motion)/graphic/video may not load and the only issue I am aware of with Sherlock is some frame skipping which occurs at both 24 and 60 fps if I remember right. I have rented the other two and have owned Sherlock for some time now.
You can save yourself some time on playability by searching my posts, I have been pretty good about reporting good and bad discs over the past year or so.
Anyhow, sounds like you did very well. Had I not been buying movies I liked at what I thought were low prices over the past couple years I could have picked up another couple dozen or more. Kinda bothers me that prices are so low now, but that is what happens. I was shocked at how many even on Sunday were only $3 that not too long ago I paid 8-10 or a tad more for. I rarely pay more that $10 for a movie anyhow, the exceptions being favorite movies or what I call library releases that are tough to find for a decent price anyhow. Even imports I don't spy more than $15 or so with shipping. There were probably 10 that I have purchased at bb for $7, that used to be their bargain basement lowest price for rentals.
