Best Buy/Walmart/Target Exclusives

Postby sonnyboo on Sun Apr 17, 2011 1:00 pm

a friend of mine a few months ago showed me some of the cool bonus discs that are put out in short order from each major retailer in the interest of getting your $$$. Sometimes "eh" and other times, pretty damn cool.

Yesterday I got HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS PART I on Blu Ray at BEST BUY because it had a 4th disc (Blu Ray I might add) that had over 60 minutes of bonus behind the scenes material. Uh, that kicked ass. Walmart's exclusive for the same movie was on the SD DVD, they added all the extras from disc 2 of the BLU RAY, so they are the only ones to have the 2 disc special edition of this title.

In the past, I got a bonus DVD of ridiculously bad "behind the scenes" for the movie CLOVERFIELD called TJ's DIARIES which were poorly made skits with the actor TJ MILLER. Then again for X-Men, WALMART put out a bonus disc that was a 1 hour documentary on the history of the X-Men in the comics with interviews with Chris Claremont, Jim Lee, and tons more (with a notable exception of no John Byrne, the old curmudgeon). There was even a different bonus disc of material for each of the 3 main retailers for season 5 of 24.

So, what are YOUR favorite store exclusive bonus discs? Anything noteworthy as to being really cool content or something really lame?

I got Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II at TARGET this time because they had the only bonus blu ray disc. It was a 1 hour documentary done for UK television that was really amazing about everyone's final days on set.

The bonus disc might soon be a thing of the past, but I will miss it sorely.
