Default Avatar Bare Bones BD + DVD - worth it @ $19.99??

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

Once I noticed the price at Amazon hit $19.99 I bit. I would rather get it for $15 or so with out the dvd, but I think Avatar is worth $20.

I've been following the pricing thread waiting for the price to continue to drop, and now that it's below $20 I'm seriously on the fence. I have vowed to stop spending so much money on Blu Ray, and I'm not sure how many times I'll watch this.

Do I spend the $19.99, watch the movie a couple of times and then unload it? Donate it to the local library? I can always put it up on swapadvd.com which gives 4 credits for the blu ray swap which is the equivalent of $20. Why am I so ambivalent about this release?

Dammit Netflix. This wait 28 day thing is already old. ARGH!

don't care about extra's really, but ... I don't pay above $15 for a new release... Period.

Buying a BD, especially a new release, in this day and age without extra features is anathema to me. I wouldn't buy this for $5. I'll patiently wait until the Ultimate Edition in November...the fact that this was, by a country mile, James Cameron's worst film makes waiting much easier than it might have otherwise been...

I rarely watch special features and am one of the few who likes blu/DVD bundles so I'm good with this release. That I don't care to bother with the extended edition as I felt it was a bit long to begin with.

$13-14 is my "go button"

Wasn't in love with film but it would be nice to add to the collection at some point.

At $19.99 I had to bite. I do expect to double dip on this movie, but not until the 3D release.

and how fast will this drop in the aftermarket, on used ones? seriously, there will be lots of blind buys based off hype, that won't pan out, and will hit the used market pretty hard. i bet within a month this title will be averaging 16 to 17.
