I love the series but not enough to drop $75 for three movies that have been released on DVD and HDDVD before (both of which I bought). The most I would pay would be $45, but I guess that would be wishful thinking.
How is that cheap for a blu ray movie? A vast majority of BRAND NEW releases rarely exceeds $25, at least on Amazon. I would consider $20 cheap for a new release. I think $60 is a reasonable price for this set even though I wouldn't buy it at that price point. Imagine how expensive this set would be if you went to a retailer like Best Buy.
I agree that this set is overpriced. The Spiderman Trilogy on blu-ray was around $60-65 at release (currently 57.99) and the Godfather Trilogy on blu-ray is 61.99. He11, I even got the Ultimate Matrix Trilogy on blu-ray (which includes more extras and The Animatrix in HD) from warnerbrothers.com for about $60 using a coupon code they were giving away and allowing anyone to use. I've never, ever spent $76+ on a friggin' trilogy. I even saw the Bourne trilogy set on DVD for about $30 IN STORE, currently sells for 23.99 on amazon... so the blu-ray set costs THREE TIMES as much?! No thanks.
I didn't know how to post my own so im just replying, but as for price i do't mind i mean the cheaper the better but when it comes to buying a good set of movies i don't mind paying even 76.99$ this coming from a frequent blue ray buyer. i mean a good set deserves some money!
I've been expecting this price to drop a little bit before the release, but, to my dismay, this hasnt happened yet. Does anyone think it will go down any before the 27th? I am with a bunch of people on here that think that $76 for this set is way too much. $60 would be the most that I would spend on any trilogy.
I think this will be the final price for the release. Maybe if it sells badly, Universal will get the message and drop the price. If this set was around $60, I bet you'd see it in the blu-ray top 10 selling titles on amazon. $76 is robbery. I have these on DVD's so I'm willing to wait for it to come down in price.
If you think the price is too much, pay close attention in the next couple months, which is what I'm going to do. Almost always, there is a sale on a new release about a month afterwards. Most likely, the trilogy will go down to about $59.99.
I think the price is a little much, but hell, it is going to look amazing on my HDTV and I have had this pre-ordered since the beggining of December. I myself who buys allot of blu ray movies and gets them for under $20 unless it is a new release and they run about $22 or more - I'm not going to fuss too much paying about $25 for each movie in the trilogy set. Any retailer would be charging the same or more when it is released. I can't wait until next week to watch this set. If you dont like the price, dont buy it, but think how amazing it is going to look on your HDTV. UPDATE: I did find someone at my office to pay me $15 for my dvd trilogy of this set, so I'm getting my price down to low $60 now.
Way too expensive. The Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy is $53.99 and you buy the individual DVDs. I love the Bourne movies, easily the best overall trilogy in my opinion. All 3 movies were very good, no clunkers or "lets make a sequel to make money" movie. Usually amazon puts pre-orders fairly low. Just a week or so ago they had the 2 Narnia movies on blu-ray for $31.99, $16 a movie. Thats probably what the Bourne trilogy should have done. Start pre-order at $49.99 and 2 weeks after release then raise the price, like everywhere else does. I believe when the Matrix Trilogy on blu-ray was first available for pre-order it was like $90+. Anything over $50 for a trilogy already available on DVD, which can be upscaled, is too much.
$25.00 is too much for a movie, even a blu-ray. I've got a dozen or so blu-rays and the most I've spent on one was $21.99 for The Dark Knight a couple weeks ago. Iron Man just just dropped to $16.99, so I'll be getting that. The MSRP may be listed around $40.00 for blu-rays, but very few places that list them at that price actually sell any. Atleast that I've seen.
Do you think this set is going to go over 50% off? i think it depends on the studio, and i wouldn't get your hopes up with Universal, they're not the same as WB or some of the others! But i understand ones who already having an HD set not wanting to invest!
