There’s a double dose of savings today, one found thanks to /Film, and the other thanks to Amazon’s Gold Box Deal of the Day promotion.

First up, Tom Cruise in his latest impossible mission, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol on Blu-ray/DVD combo pack for a mere $9.99 from Amazon. There’s something odd going on, though, and if you view the main Amazon page for that product, it lists the price at $18.79. However, if you click on the marketplace New link, you’ll see that Amazon is selling it for $9.99. Adding it to your cart confirms this $9.99 price, but also gives the bad news: you must wait 2-4 weeks for shipping. Either way, this is a great deal, and is nearly 80% off the (much overpriced) MSRP of $44.99. This does not have an expiration date, and seeing as they are already on backorder, if you’re interested, I would make a move on it as soon as you possibly can before it goes back up to $18.79.

The second deal for today – and this one expires at around 2 am Eastern time, or until they sell out – is the Abbott & Costello: The Complete Universal Pictures Collection for $47.99, or 60% off the $119.48 MSRP, and $37.00 off yesterday’s (and probably tomorrow’s) price of $84.99. This set contains all 28 films produced by Universal for Abbot & Costello, plus extras. All of this material is spread over 15, single-sided, DVD discs.

Here is a breakdown from Amazon:
“Now, for the first time ever, all 28 films produced during the height of their popularity at Universal Pictures are finally available in one prestigious collection! This DVD collection is filled with some of the most hilarious routines of all time, including “Who’s on First?”, Two Tens for a Five” and “Mustard.” Featuring their most popular movies, such as Buck Privates, Who Done It? and Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein. Loaded with hours of bonus features and an exclusive collectible book! The ultimate tribute to two of the funniest and most enduring comedians of all time!

Branden has been a film fan since he was young, roaming the halls of Blockbuster Video, trying to find the grossest, scariest looking VHS covers to rent and watch alone in the basement. It wasn't until recently, though, that Branden started seeking out the classics of cinema, and began to develop his true passion for the art form. Branden approaches each film with the unique perspective of having studied the art from the inside, having both a bachelor's and master's degree in acting. He has been a film critic since 2010, and has previously written for Inside Pulse Movies, We Love Cult, and Diehard Gamefan. His biggest achievement as a film critic, to date, has been founding Cinefessions and turning it from a personal blog to a true film website, housing hundreds of film and television reviews, and dozens of podcasts.
