Just checked with my son, who is a stockroom manager for Best Buy now, and he just called me back. Both the single disc blu-ray ($17.99) and Blu-ray/DVD Combo disc have lots of special features, so I guess that you were wrong about a bare-bones release of "Red". Difference in the price is whether you just want the Blu-ray or the Combo.
:D

Thanks dvdjunkie! I know that there was a bit of speculation as to whether or not the Best Buy Blu-ray/DVD was going to be a "flipper", so it's nice to finally know for sure. Though I would love to have this in a combo, I'm probably just going to pass on the whole flipper thing. Thanks again for helping me try to make up my mind. Hopefully it'll finally be made up by time I get to the store Tuesday!! :)

No, he's right. There are three versions of Red available in general release, and one Best Buy exclusive. Prices listed are SRP, not first-week sale price.

Red Movie-Only Blu-Ray (General Release) $30.49

Thanks for the heads-up about RED. Want to get both RED and Secretariat. Malkovich was good in both. Can't wait to see Helen Mirren firing off that big gun again. :D

Ooohkay. So the "movie only" version is the one on sale at Target this week then. That makes a lot of sense. I thought they were only releasing the "special editions" and then the Blu-Ray/DVD Combo at Best Buy. Thanks for the info, Escapay!

For those buying Red... The movie only version of Red is missing the DTS-HD MA audio and has a lower video encode. The video probably isn't noticeable to the eye though. The movie only edition is a BD25 disc and the Special Edition is a BD50. The Best Buy exclusive version is also a "flipper" disc. Hopefully there want be any problems with them.

$9.93 @ Walmart. This is the 2006 DVD 3-disc set. It has all the stuff that made it onto the 2010 release plus two extra movies (1931 version of Maltese Falcon, and 1936's Satan Met a Lady). Good deal since the american Amazon wants $22 for it right now. Still hoping to get African Queen to add to my Bogie collection.

Picked these 2 up yesterday:

Alice in Wonderland: 60th Annivesary Edition Blu-ray/DVD - $9.99 @ Best Buy

Image

Jumanji DVD - $3.00 @ Goodwill (still factory sealed)

Image

I hestiated on Jumanji because I anticipate a Blu-ray release eventually. However, I decided to get it A) because it was only $3 and B) if the Blu-ray comes as a single disc, I'll have my own "combo pack" with a DVD.
