Amazon has the classic flick "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" on sale for a week only. The Blu Ray version is reviewed many places 4 stars (I have it and would agree).

Super, super price.... more info here:

Extraordinarily tempting, but it also makes me wonder if there's an even better edition to come in the next several months. I've been burned like that before.

AFAIK, there's no plans for a re-release of Close Encounters.

Additionally, that Amazon price is a reaction to Fry's in-store price which is the same this week, so if you live near a Fry's, you can just walk in and pick it up.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

Mmm...fries.

(actually, I love Fry's, especially the parts side of the operation, and wish there was one in my area)

And thanks for the heads up on this, hdtvfan0001. :righton: Purchased.

I have Fry's here as well...same price. Unfortunately...many others don't...

so...at least with this...everyone can enjoy the great deal on a super Blu Ray / classic great movie.

That's a great price! I highly suggest jumping. I got mine when it first came out and the quality is fantastic!

I've heard nothing but good things about this Blu release...

...but I have to say, I've never been a big fan of the movie itself. It's one of those blockbusters that I just never got involved in somehow and missed all the hype.

Not knocking it for folks that like it.. and many of the actors in it are ones I do like in other things... and I like lots of other Spielberg movies.

Ditto.
