    A new sale on the iTunes Movies storefront has opened up today, with two-movie bundles that are all priced at $9.99.

    These "Double Features" include films that are either part of a series, represent the original and rebooted versions of the movie, are the same genre, or include the same actors. Before the sale began, the bundles were priced between $19.99 and $27.99, so now you have the chance to add two films to your iTunes movies library for the price of one.

    You can find the list of bundles in iTunes Movies on iOS, macOS, or tvOS, located after scrolling down past the first few categories like New & Noteworthy. Check out the full list of HD bundles on sale below:[*]Scarface & Casino
    [*]The Addams Family & Addams Family Values

During a sale in December, iTunes marked down 4K films based on studios and genres, but after the initial $19.99 sale price all of the bundles have since increased to cost $29.99 and more.

    In addition to the iTunes Movies sale, Amazon's Gold Box deal today includes a refurbished model of the 21.5-inch 4K iMac from late 2015 (3.1GHz, 8GB RAM, 1TB HD) for $899.99, down from $1,299.99. The iMac is being sold by Woot on Amazon, which describes its refurbished computers as "professionally restored to working order" and "inspected, cleaned, and repaired to meet manufacturer specifications."

    The iMac isn't guaranteed to come in its original packaging, but it shows limited or no wear and includes all original accessories, as well as a 1 Year Apple Warranty. Comparatively, the refurbished computer is $300 cheaper than the latest 2017 models of Apple's 4K 21.5-inch iMac, which start at $1,199.00 for the base configuration (3.0 GHz, 8GB RAM, 1TB HD) and increase from there. For those interested, the Gold Box deal will expire tonight at midnight.

    Obviously we're all going to be purchasing Mean Girls & Clueless. I think that goes without saying.

    Nice. But no Kill Bill 1 & 2? That's the best original-sequel combo I can think of.

    Addams Family Values still isn't available on Bluray, so this is a great deal to see it in HD along with the original.

    There is a Tarantino 6-film bundle for $49 on iTunes rn, think it includes everything up until KB Vol. 2. But ya a simple KB $10 bundle would be a no-brainer for me too

    This iMac will NOT come with an Apple 1-year warranty. Amazon is not an Apple authorized re-seller, and I would give caution to anyone buying from them. This is a used computer, and Apple is only going to honor a 1-year warranty from the date of original purchase (from the day the first person purchased the computer from Apple, or their authorized resellers).

    I thought of that too, but there's a third movie.

    Even if they did ever make a third Godfather, it wouldn’t affect the originals. ;)

    In the same way, Jaws 2 doesn’t lessen Jaws. Nor do the prequels change the OT, or Days of Thunder impact Top Gun.

    Sequels are separate works in the sam storyworld, they are not interrelated.

    I didn't mean to bash the third Godfather movie. Actually I haven't seen it. It would just be weird to make a bundle with 2/3 of the movies in it. Unless I'm forgetting some, everything with a sequel or reboot pairing in the list represents the entire series.

    I'm waiting for October 3rd.

    Bash away, it's not great. Sofia Coppola (i.e., daughter of FFC) is particularly bad. Some things work pretty well, it's kind of neat seeing things come full circle, Andy Garcia is fun, Pacino is good - the idea of the old school being replaced by a "new mafia" is a great concept. Some odd character motivations, a few janky script contorations to setup a few scenes (some of which are very good in and of themselves).

    Godfather I and II are two of the greatest films ever made, so expectations were probably a bit too high.

    Worth a watch one time :)
