Amazon and Tower start Blu-ray sales

Amazon and Tower start Blu-ray sales The giant e-tailer Amazon and the once huge audio/video retailer Tower have started new sales on Blu-ray movie titles, with some popular movies reaching as low as $12 USD.
Amazon, for its deal, has slashed the price on a few popular titles and added a new "Buy 2 Get 1 Free" offer. A few of the movies seeing price cuts are 'Blade Runner,' 'I Am Legend', '3:10 To Yuma,' and '300.' The B2G1F promotion will last all week and includes 95 titles including 'The Fifth Element,' 'Hellboy,', 'Underworld Evolution' and 'Spider-Man: The High-Definition Trilogy.' You can view the complete list here: Amazon "Buy 2 Get 1 Free" offer.

On the other hand, Tower has slashed the prices of many Blu-ray titles, some even lower than that of Amazon. Just like the e-tailer, there is free shipping on orders above $25 USD.

A few of the notable price cuts have '300', '3:10 to Yuma' and 'Blade Runner' at $12 USD, the cheapest price I have seen for great BD movies in a very long time.

Too bad I can't pick two movies out of that selection. Silent Hill is the only one I really want.

Stupid technology!!!

SPinning Disks blow, blu-ray blows, manufacturer's intentions GOOD but futile. Expensive, Expensive and oh..........did I mention TOO EXPENSIVE TO JUSTIFY A NEGLIGIBLE DIFFERENCE?

Bring HD on flash or fiber download. Even better, perfect the hologram technology.

Have you checked the latest price in flash drives that equals the capacity of a BD?

well if movies like
i am legend, jumper, 3:10 to Yuma (currently under 15euros) are old for you... then go to WB and tell them to sell you the film for a euro.

Not bad. It's nice to see prices on some of it come down a little bit. I'll have to add "300" to my collection for that price.
