    Or the 2 for $40 for the 4K (works out to $32, $16 each, pretty good for 4K)

    At the last sale though, JB movie section was still a ghost town. Not many people buying them these days.

      Or maybe most people buy online or clock and collect their orders. Who goes to a store to browse movies in today's world?

        I do sometimes , but I usually know what I want plus in my day we used to have a place called a “video shop” where we wonder around to look at the new movies

        Yeah I check stock online before going as well.

        But in store you may something you cannot see online, like a special edition disc set the same price as cut down version.

        For example the current Alita 4K is a single disc now. You may find the 4K, Bluray, 3D version or this one with the steelbook for the same price as the single disk. A week or two ago the Alita 4K was not even on the jb webpage. So I picked up the 3 disc version.

        Also got the Gladiator 4K collectors edition with the book for 2 for $40 deal. Was not looking for it but saw in store.

    Grabbed the Curb Your Enthusiasm boxset S1-8. Noticed S9 was 20 bucks but also 2 for 20. So I got Tag on Bluray, used a $20 gift card. Paid $43.

    Pretty confident 4K Blu Rays will be the last physical media format. Happy to buy my absolute favourite movies on them.

      That's a big call considering the file sizes of 8k and beyond.

        I till get the physic disc depending on the movie but the ease of streaming or using an online service makes a compelling case if your willing to sacrifice quality which most people are doing

        Not a single movie has ever been mastered in 8K, most of the major studios are still mastering in 2K, let alone 4K. Combine that with the fact that only 30% off people still buy physical media on a regular basis and 65% of those are still buying DVDs rather than blu-Ray or 4K and you have some pretty compelling reasons why 8K discs aren’t likely to ever be a thing.

          It's a tried and tested argument in VHS > DVD > Blu-Ray > 4K. Guess time will tell. It's a bit hard for 4K to be big when they still release shit exclusively on DVD.

          Didn’t Samsung or one of the other big companies announce a cease to production of new BluRay drives this year too? Kind of shows where things are going.

        •  

          The most compelling argument against 8K, is your average person is already struggling to fit a screen big enough to make use of 4k into their house. Where are most people going to find space for a 8k screen?

            @CamNEW: True. Why bother with an 8K TV if there isn't any native 8K content to watch on them. Not just upscaling 4K to 8K. WSince alot of 4k are just digital intermediate 2K Masters upscaled to 4K.

    Pity John Wick 3 isn't part of the 2 for $40

      The high table won't allow you to get it cheap.

    Checking e-mails from around this time last year, JB previously had 20% of CD's/Vinyl. Anyone know if this will be happening as part of the '5 Day Frenzy'?

    Wait for a Black Friday 20% sale in late November. Hopefully more titles will be available.
