I'm probably going to get:
Gone in 60 Seconds
Brother's Grimm
Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back
Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

I deffinately don't mind picking titles like these up when I can get them for $11-$12 each! :D

I'm tempted to get the 2 POTC BD's, anyone know if the framing issue was ever resolved?

Thanks for the heads up! Both POTC in BD for $24 is pretty good.

Last I heard a replacement program was either in place, or coming soon... I need to get mine swapped as well I think (although I actually bought POTC in Canada... the ONLY BDs I've gotten in Canada!).

I've heard reports that people were really going nuts for HiDef movies at Fry's :o

Here's the thread on HighDefDigest discussing the framing issue:

Apparently there's something in the works, but it'd help if people get after Disney about the issue.

Some serious fanboys there. I hope they are at least buying shares in the respective companies to reap some of the rewards.

It's a bit painful at times, but it's better then hanging around on the AVS or Blu-Ray.com forums :o

I recommend checking out their Sales Ranking sub forum though, it's pretty useful for information, and fun to take part in their nostradomus game.
