Picked up Body of Lies and Punisher WZ and comparing WALL-E to Kung Fu Panda is like comparing vaginal sex to a cheeseburger.

My stores still have many copies. Went back today to see if I can get the "Eagle Eye" $10.00 off coupon, take back the two I got yesterday and see if I can get $10 credit for Tropic Thunder and see if I can get $10 credit.

Unfortunately, "Eagle Eye" didn't come with a $10 off coupon. I did utilize these for the Wal-Mart two-packs two months ago but the "Eagle Eyes" at our Target store didn't have the coupon (the one stuck on the front cover) on any of them. So, I figured maybe it's inside, so I bought "Eagle Eye" and "Kung Fu Panda"...but nada on coupon inside.

Oh, well...B1G1...can't complain.

The prices on Amazon dropped to match these titles just now... sigh now for a return trip to Target.

Transporter 3
Bangkok Dangerous
Kung-Fu Panda
Madagascar 2 - Escape 2 Africa
Body of Lies
Punisher - War Zone

are $14.99 on Amazon

Didn't check the other ones but those are the ones I just bought from Target... and checked on Amazon.

Why would you return them? lol

Picked up Wall-E and Punisher, and an "as-is" copy of No Reservations for my woman. It has been there FOREVER, but I got them to drop it from $21.01 to $14.78 8-)

I don't have to pay tax, and I get bonus points from buying stuff from Amazon with the Amazon.com Visa card. It's pretty much my incentive to always get stuff from Amazon.

I saw No Reservations the other day... that movie makes you incredibly hungry.

I wonder if the several copies of "The Departed" HD-DVD are still sitting on the clearance rack at one of the Target stores in my area. :rofl:

For $21... I'll pass.

Oh, and phil... don't you mean incentive? Since inventive doesn't make as much sense in the context of you're reason compared to incentive. ;)

Ah, you must be referring to the Blaine Target Greatland.

Figured if I was going to bring the receipt back to see if I can get credit, they may ask if I had the two BD's. So brought them back just in case. But none of the "Eagle Eyes" had the $10 off coupon. But again, can't complain. I used the EE coupon several times during the Wal-Mart two pack sale. So, it's all good.

sorry a little off topic but...ive read on several forums and een amazon.com that disney has some kind of packaging problem with wall-e. some are saying this disc(s) dont work (3 dsc set) and some are saying that they get TWO DISC ONE copies (not a disc one and a disc 2). ALSO, many r saying that there is no code for the digital copy. disney has acknowleged the problem but have yet to "fix" it.

im wondering for those who bought wall-e at target, did u have this problem??? i do not want to go through this trouble so would rather wait or not buy wall-e at all. i really just bought it because of the BOGO but seein how amazon PM, i probably will just get kung fu panda there if this is a reoccurring problem with wall-e. thanks in advance for any feedback

Hm, I'm srsly contemplating Transporter 3 and Punisher WZ from amazon (no tax fsss).

Also, Amazon is PM'ing almost all the Target B1G1s including Narnia Prince Caspian (2 disc), and Indiana Jones 4. I dunno why Eagle Eye isn't in there, though.

Gah.

I think Amazon is still running the 'coupon match sale' for Eagle Eye and they probably don't want to get stuck with double discounts.

I hope they are good incentives, because my $2 tax isn't worth me driving back to Target.

Support your economy and shit too, yo.

And with Amazon matching all prices, I'm now buying a few.

Thanks Amazon!

Indy, Wall-E, etc are all matched now.

Most are probably already aware, but just to add that the Wall-E on sale (target and amazon) is the 2 disc version. 3 disc w/digital copy is $24.99.

:lol:


Easy to happen given the city location Fuck up of that area around Northtown.

Northtown Mall itself (along with BBY) = Blaine
Office Depo/Dennys area with the now RIP Circuit City = Coon Rapids
Wal-Mart = Fridley

Its like they couldn't decide on what city the area should be fully so they split the area up between the three cities. I know its not a big deal to most people on this but I can't help but to think of a common phrase that the AVGN would say to this....

"What we're they thinking?"

Saw Amazon was matching so I went for Wall-E and Kung Fu Panda through them, thanks for the ups on that!

I'm still giving some money to Target though, I plan to swing by and check their boxset deal again tomorrow.

Hah, very true.

But after finally watching Kung Fu Panda I would say that while Dreamworks isn't as consistent, they definitely can put out a film is in the same league as Pixar. I liked it every bit as much as I did Wall-E, but for different reasons.

It seems obvious to side with Pixar over Dreamworks every time...

But I actually enjoyed Kung Fu Panda a lot! It did a superb job in transmitting both Chinese mythology and Shaw Bros. chop-socky, all with a great sense of humor. There's no real depth to the movie but it never pretends otherwise. I think it's the first Dreamworks production that I can say is truly good.

Wall-E was an impeccable silent film for its first act. (The sound design alone makes the film worth watching!) Once the humans entered the picture, however, my love for the film began to fade. I believe very much in being green, but Wall-E is the first Pixar film to feel a bit ham-fisted with its message (something I didn't even feel about Cars).

Wall-E is a good movie in spite of that feeling, but I wish its praise didn't have to come at the expense of Kung Fu Panda, which deserves commendation of its own.
