A rather decent assortment of titles hitting shelves today. The Best Buy coupon for $5 off any DVD or Blu-ray priced $14.99+ is still valid, and will surely help to ease the burden on the wallet.
*NOTE: Rango will not be released until Friday, July 15th.
Format: DVD - One of my most anticipated releases of the year. Like the first film, it is only available on DVD for the R1 (U.S.) release. Amazon has it available for $18.99.
Format: DVD - The Blu-ray includes a DVD and a Digital Copy of the film, but nothing exclusive in the way of supplements. Therefore, I opt for the DVD, which is $2 cheaper this week. It is on sale for $15.99 at Best Buy this week; $10.99 with the $5 coupon.
Format: DVD - Once again, the Blu-ray offers nothing exclusive except for BD-Live support, so I opt for saving $2 with the DVD format. It is on sale at Best Buy for $17.99; $12.99 with the $5 coupon.
Format: Blu-ray/DVD/DC Combo - In addition to a DVD and a Digital Copy of the film, the Blu-ray also sports an extended cut (complete with an alternate ending) as well as a few exclusive features. It will be available for $19.99 at Best Buy when it hits shelves this Friday; $14.99 after the $5 coupon.
Finally, today marks the beginning of Barnes & Noble's 50% off the Criterion Collection sale, which will be run through August 1st. If you have a B&N membership, you can save an extra 10% in stores or receive free shipping online (and often lower prices than what you find in stores, too). As promised, I will provide a list of recommended titles for the sale later this week.
