Do you ever have anything positive to say? or better yet make a positive contribution?

Every friggin' post I read of yours is bashing something, do you have an opinion, or just enjoy opposing everyone else's?

Yes, I did buy it, a BD and a DVD copy of a fun kiddy flick for $30 is a good buy IMHO

I thought I'd share the deals at JB with the rest of the forum but once again all you want to do is clog up the thread with your trash

Funny, I was thinking the same thing just yesterday. Misery must be his life choice.

$20 for old catalogue titles is definitely good to see.

Hoping Transporter 3 will be <$30 at JB on Thursday. Des anyone know the AU release audio specs ? Do we get a 7.1 DTS HD MA track like the US release or the 5.1 True HD from the UK. I would imagine it will be the latter :rolleyes:

its becoming the NEW RELEASE thread as far as I can see !!!

why don't u start a NEW RELEASE / PRICE thread - will all the upcoming titles.

If $29.95 if now the DEFACTO New Release price for JB HiFi and $31.83 / 32 for BigW - then its not exactly a 'bargain' - its the NEW PRICE. (It remains to be seen whether these titles will REMAIN at these prices after a few weeks. There's a sure stack of titles at JB beyond this price level - will these becoming down ??)

The $20 titles in the June 11 BigW thread a 'bargains' in the sense that they have finally reduced in price (from their original price). The Amazon UK 3for2 are 'bargains'. The CDWow $20 titles are 'bargains'.

If EVERY NEW release is going to be regarded as a 'bargain' at $29/32 - and then its going to be written up in this thread - so be it - then what is going to 'qualify' as a 'bargain' these days ????

start a new thread - post the weekly new releases + prices - granted that this thread is over 4500 odd posts.

Yeh but not all new releases are at those prices - for many the cheapest they are anywhere is $37+ (ie. Star Trek individual releases). So if they were $31.xx or $29.xx somewhere they would be a bargain in that sense.

I have no problem with people posting "new" release prices if they are under $32.

For those longterm DVD bargain aficionados - you may be 'wondering' where the semi-annual DeepDiscount sale is (as it is normally around June / November time frames - approx the EOFY for us). It would appear that it will be coming around the 17 July for two weeks.

Time to get your wish lists up to date (to monitor price changes etc)

If you don't find 29.98 for a new release Blu Ray a bargain, just get out of this thread.

I dougt these prices will last. It is pretty common with some things at JB to be cheaper on release and then back up to normal prices. A good case in point is NCIS seasons. For the last 3 seasons they have been around $35 on release and then when they have sold out, back up to $45 or so.

Given what they had to work with (ie. the negative is destroyed, and the whole thing was shot without filters, meaning dupes aren't the best quality either), it's quite good actually. The featurette on the bonus disc goes into the restoration process in detail.

...unfortunately the UK version is missing the bonus disc.

Bought the UK version from Amazon.co.uk a month ago, came with all four discs (3 films + bonus disc), same as AU release. Does the US release have a second bonus disc?

I bought it & rewatched them. If you are viewing on a HDTV I reckon there is a clear upgrade. But don't expect it to be I,Robot like - its definately not reference quality! But its the best quality you'll be able to view it in.

Bedtime Stories BD + DVD $29.98 at JB Hi Fi

Other BDs also $29.98 at JB

Benjamin Button 2 Disc

Role Models

Day Earth Stood Still

Thanks for the info Darthhasbro.

I am definitely interested in Benjamin Button - do you know if this is the normal 2 disc edition or special 2 disc edition? Does the in-store JB have 2 different copies of it on Blu Ray or just the standard one? I noticed JB online has 2 versions, normal and special.

Thanks
