    Now that Amazon & several B&M retailers have lowered the price to $19.99, are you going to bite?

    It's a great movie and $20 is a steal.

    To be honest, you're better off waiting until November when the other version comes out. I mean, NO special features whatsoever? It's a joke.

    not really secial features are dumb. I dont feel like listening to james cameron for an hour explaining t us how he made millions fo dollers in 2 days. And 3D at home is a joke.

    I bought it at Bestbuy for $22.99

    I had a $10 certificate so it was real cheap for both BLU RAY and DVD. I don't care about extras.

    For home viewing the 2D versions are much brighter than seeing the 3D versions since depending on the 3D tech you will lose 50% of the brightness of the image. The DTS Master quality audio is awesome for the BLU RAY and for me I can interpolate the DVD version to 60 FPS or higher using POWER DVD 9 Ultra so it really is a case of having the best of both worlds. So it is definitely worth it. :nutkick:
