    So this has been going on for a while now (since 10/1/07), and i recently gotten a PS3 for X-Mas...though i said wont be using the PS3 as a movie player, i figure since it's free why not...and eventually i might cave in using it something other than a game console.

    But the thing though, the choices aren't that great (It's one per category)...

    Cat 1: The Prestige, Wild Hogs, or Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl

    Cat 2: Swordfish, Superman, or Full Metal Jacket

    Cat 3: Stif of Echoes, American Psycho, or The Devil's Rejects

    Cat 4: The Patriot, S.W.A.T., or Ultraviolet

    Cat 5: Chain Reaction, Omen 666, Flight of the Phoenix, Species, Hart's War, or The Last Waltz


    so for those did this, what did you get and how was it (was the transfer good, the extras good, etc)...and those that didn't, what would you get if you had the choice?


    Oops, wrong forum, can someone move this to the general forum please...

    I wouldnt get that version of Full Metal Jacket. The version that they are giving out is the previously released one with horrible transfer. There is a newer one out with a black cover as opposed to the white cover.

    I was part of the last offer and my movies were a lot crappier. I didn't have good movies to get like Wild Hogs and John Travolta's masterpiece, Swordfish.

    Take the Blu-Ray movies to Walmart, tell them they were bought as a gift for you and you want to exchange them. Get store credit, and used it for whatever/games.

    Smasher's :2c: 
    Cat 1: The Prestige
    Cat 2: Full Metal Jacket
    Cat 3: American Psycho
    Cat 4: Ultraviolet (it's a dumb movie, but its got cool effects and Mila in HD = win)
    Cat 5: Chain Reaction, Omen 666, Flight of the Phoenix, Species, Hart's War, or The Last Waltz. GAWD -these all suck. Pick your own poison here.

    Cat 1: The Prestige
    Cat 2: Full Metal Jacket
    Cat 3: American Psycho, or The Devil's Rejects
    Cat 4: ummmm none of them but if you had to choose, the Patriot
    Cat 5: none of them also but if you had to choose, Flight of the Phoenix or Hart's War

    Id recommend on the last two, get whichever, choose a store you like, buy the blue ray of that movie and get a gift recipt for each. Then a day or two later, return the DVDs for the cash recipt first. Then later, take those freebies with the gift recipt and use them to exchange for something you want.

    What the hell, my votes w/ reasoning:

    Cat 1: The Prestige OR Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. Could go either way. I'd say this is a personal judgement call, but the latter would probably benefit more from the Blu-Ray aspect of it all.

    Cat 2: Full Metal Jacket. Classic.

    Cat 3: American Psycho. Christian Bale. And it's a great film.

    Cat 4: The Patriot, S.W.A.T., or Ultraviolet. These all kinda suck. So I'd probably go with SWAT for the big Blu-Ray explosions and action scenes.

    Cat 5: Flight of the Phoenix. Especially if it's the original. Never saw the remake, though.
