    So, have we started compiling a list of all the different exclusives we have to choose from connected to the DVD release? I want to make sure I choose the one I'll like best.

    Seriously. $40? Is it gold plated?

    Price really doesn't surprise me. I had to pay $20 w/ tax for the score there, because it was the only place in the NW suburbs of Chicago to carry it. They're probably taking the MSRP of the 2-disc set and adding double digit dollars for the exclusive.

    In the end, it all depends on how big the extra booklet is to say $40 is too much for it.

    It's all depends if they used the word "booklet" right, too. The typical definition of booklet is small book. I'm guessing it'll be something they could easy bind (via clear wrap) to the DVD and something that won't take up too much space. If that's true, then it's probably not big enough to give reason to such a price.

    The dvds haven't hit the stores yet, that should be tomorrow.
    I'll know what the booklets are by then. The $39.99 is our price.
    Our prices are usually more than the other stores but it should be on sale, again I'll know tomorrow.

    The Prime Display is coming to my house muahahah!

    Borders is notoriously overpriced. And they wonder why nobody reads anymore...

    Get the DVD elsewhere and pick up the TF issue of Cinefex on your way home.

    Alright,
    I saw the booklet today. It comes packaged with the dvd and it's about the size of the dvd case. Not sure how many pages ( 20 maybe ?) and it's about the "making of / behind the scene" type thing.

    Prices on sale the day it comes out:
    Widescreen Special Edition With booklet 24.99
    Widescreen Special Edition 22.99
    Regular Widescreen 19.99
