Blu-ray and HD DVD movies: Buy one, get one free

Choose two Blu-ray or HD DVD movies from Best Buy's small but decent selection, and you'll pay for only one of them.

So you bit the high-def bullet and popped for a Blu-ray player--or an HD DVD player. Either way, it's time to start building your movie library.

Best Buy is currently offering buy-one-get-one-free deals on both Blu-ray and HD DVD movies. Free shipping, too!

What's the selection like? Better than you might expect. Available titles include 300, The Departed, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, and Ocean's Thirteen. (There are a couple turkeys, of course, like I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry and Are We Done Yet?.) Interestingly, all the Blu-ray flicks sell for $29.99 or $34.99, while a couple of the HD DVDs are available for $19.99. That's not an endorsement of the format or anything, just an observation. Personally, I'm snagging 300 and Transformers--what better titles for showing off the glories of high-def DVD?
