Tuesdays are always pretty exciting, because as you may know, new Blu-Ray releases hit the shelves of your local retail store as well as the virtual shelves of online retailers like Amazon.com.

Some notable deals on 3/1 releases can be had at Best Buy starting today. Here’s a quick run-down:
• Walt Disney’s Diamond Edition of Bambi on Blu-Ray is $10 off ($12.99 vs. $22.99) with a special coupon located here.
• You can also get a collectible Bambi lunchbox for $4.99 with your Blu-Ray purchase.
• Buy the Pirates of the Caribbean Trilogy and get a free movie ticket with purchase.
• Buy both 127 Hours and Love and Other Drugs on Blu-Ray and get $10 off your purchase.
• And finally, one of the uh, stranger promos I’ve seen lately: buy Burlesque on Blu-Ray and get a free corset. Probably not very useful for the gentlemen out there, but perhaps this is more about the ladies? I wouldn’t know.
And there you have it. As for myself? ‘127 Hours’ and that kick-ass Pirates trilogy are must-own films. Be sure to let us know in the comments section what flicks you plan on picking up this week.
