Spiderman 1, Spiderman 2, and Men in Black are also in that sale. $3.99 each. The store that I went to only had a couple left though.

Circuit City is also having a similar sale, with some decent movies at $3.99.

I got:

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Blue Crush
Along Came Polly
Cat in the Hat (full screen, though)
Hulk
American Pie 2
American Wedding

all for $3.99 each.

All I want... is goddamn Battlestar Galactica Season 1 for $30 or so.  I don't want to pay more than that for it.  It's resistant to dropping price/being in stock at Gamestop.

Damn, I missed the Animatrix.  Might have to make a return visit...

And it's now cheaper to just buy the damn movie than rent it.

I picked up Zathura for $6.99.

There were literally only 5 DVDs left in the $3.99 bin.  2 copies of Spider-Man and 3 for 8 Mile.

I still say Hulk for $3.99 is $3.99 more than it's worth.

Oh no doubt.  I saw that and wondered to myself.  "Is it worth buying just so I can burn it to release the suckage?"

Oh, snap.

My son got a Hulk easy reading book a few days ago and really liked it. He's into Super Heroes so as a treat we had "men's night at home" the other night and rented Hulk.

The damn Hulk doesn't show up until about an hour into the movie, by which time my poor son was delirious with boredom. We bailed on the thing, and he hasn't mentioned wanting to see the back half.

Still, I figured that the back half of the movie had to be better than the front half, so when I saw it for $3.99 I figured I'd pick it up so we could watch the back half some time when we were really really really bored.

It doesn't get better, though? Bummer. Is the back half just as horrible?

You know, whoever ran that movie through test runs should be shot. It's not that hard to get this right. When you make a movie about the Hulk, you'd think you'd figure a way to get the Hulk into the movie before it's half over.

You know, if it's really that bad there still might be use for it. I could probably get my son to clean his room by threatening to make him watch the ending. "Clean your room or we'll watch the Hulk!"

I disagree. The Hulk was a fantastic remake. It at least included the conflicts in banners life.

Bana can't act, but we don't shit on Berry's head for her pathetic "storm". Oh wait, we do! biggrin

In all seriousness, I enjoyed the Hulk way more than I did X3 or Punisher. I imagine I'll still prefer it more than Ghost Rider.

There is little to compare to the disaster that was The Punisher.  *shudder*

There's a scene where the military is trying to take out the Hulk and he goes apeshit on 'em.  Leaps at helicopters.  Rips the turret off a tank.  That scene rocks.  The rest of the movie?  Not so much.

Oh, that sounds good. Thanks. I did enjoy the scene where he fights the hell hounds.

I do agree with Purge that I appreciate the movie's effort to set the character's background, but I think they could have done it in about 15 minutes instead of an hour. My son's Easy Reader set the background very nicely in about 40 words and eight pictures.

I'm not a big Ang Lee fan; but since I knew he was directing I had set my expectations at just the right level to enjoy the movie. I loved the smashing etc, but I also LOVED the visual presentations (remembering the scene where banner was in the lab with the generals daughter and the bootlick).

I was able to forgive the slow start... I mean, Ang needed to build the plausability, right? smile

Judging from those lists I can point out only two movies I could justify adding to my collection: Leon the Uncut edition, and All the President's Men CE. Whenever I see Armageddon on sale I keep thinking about the Criterion version that I keep meaning to buy someday. smile

Leon the Uncut edition - purchased
Somehow I ended up with the Rambo Ultimate collector's edition in my basket as well.  Damned impulse buys...

The Blue Crush part? Is it a bad movie? I haven't watched it yet, but it had three women with bikinis on the cover, and it had "Two Thumbs Up" plastered on it somewhere. It's a surfing movie, no?

Oh, bah I say. Just look at this line up:
three women, bikinis, surfiing.

How can it go wrong?

All that it's missing is "UNRATED VERSION" plastered on the cover, but otherwise I think I've got a winner here.

You're all just jealous because I got a copy for $4 and you all missed it. :wink:

Joking aside, I might have to watch this one this weekend. I'm a big fan of bad movies.

Come to think of it, the last movie I watched with three seductively attired women on the cover was Charlie's Angels II. And that is hands down the worst movie I've ever seen, even worse that Plan Nine from Outer Space.
