Welcome to We Got This Covered’s Deals of the Day. In this brand new column, we’ll be scouring the web in order to bring you hot deals on Blu-Rays and video games. Today, we’ve found two Blu-Ray worth getting excited about, check them out below.
1) The Bourne Trilogy
The Bourne Trilogy boxset is pretty much the closest thing to a perfect movie boxset ever made, because if you like one Bourne movie, there’s a very good chance you’ll like the other two just as much. Each outing with forgetful super-spy Jason Bourne is basically the exact same as the last one, which is to say, each film is a pulse-pounding blend of close-quarters fisticuffs, amazing car chases, and post-9/11 espionage, starring roughly half of Hollywood’s character actors as beatdown targets for a very confused, very compelling Matt Damon.
This week, you can enjoy all the beautifully filmed globetrotting-thrills on Blu-Ray for a whopping 58% off as it’s featured as Amazon’s Blu-Ray deal of the week. Order it as a belated Mother’s Day gift if you’d like, so you and your mama can enjoy one of the best, most consistent action movie trilogies ever made, one that was totally never spoiled by an unnecessary cash-in of a sequel that’s as relevant to its franchise’s legacy as The Star Wars Christmas Special.
2) Casablanca 70th Anniversary Limited Collector’s Edition
What can I say about Casablanca that hasn’t already been said before? Nothing, absolutely nothing. So instead of focusing on the film, which I’m sure you’ve all seen, let’s look at the Blu-Ray package itself. This week Amazon has the 70th Anniversary Limited Collector’s Edition for 52% off. At only $31.49, this is a deal that you should not miss out on.
Packaged in an attractive rectangular box, you’ll receive the Blu-Ray/DVD as well as a 62-page hardcover book, a faux-leather keepsake box with four drink coasters and a theatrical mini movie poster. Then, of course, you have the film itself along with thirteen plus hours of special features. There’s some excellent stuff here too and it’s all really interesting. Cinema lovers will no doubt find a lot to like when it comes to the bonus material.
If you’re a film fan of any kind, you’ll know that Casablanca is an impeccable motion picture, one that you should have in your Blu-Ray collection. Combine that with the excellent 70th Anniversary Limited Collector’s Edition and you have an instant must-buy.
