Hot Deals: Amazon Sells Ghost in the Shell 2.0 Blu-Ray for 11

What is going on!?!


Ghost in the Shell 2.0 is, for the uniformed, a HD, entirely reanimated version of the classic 1995 Mamoru Oshii film. Note that I said "reanimated" and not "remastered."
 
How much would you pay for such a feature? 20 dollars? 30? Try eleven dollars ... on Blu-Ray. Last week we discussed how 20 dollars would be too much for a feature we already own a couple times over, and the original 30 dollar price point is just plain out... but, are they listening to us?
 
I guess this might have to do with how the original packaging actually mis-represents the special features on disc, but I don't know... maybe the discs are just hot. Like, now I'm busy comparing Amazon to that guy who sells shaky cam movies out of the back of his van.

I'm considering buying it, but I have to consider if I'll ever actually WATCH it.  I have this tendancy to never rewatch any kind of movie or anime, so most of the anime I have ever purchased just..sits there on my shelf. (Point in case, my unopened Evangelion boxset).
