Life Aquatic Criterion 2-Disc- 14.99 @ CompUSA

Already had ordered online, but when I walked into CompUSA, saw it priced at 14.99. Did a double take, but it says thats its the 2-disc version.

Bought it, haven't opened to make sure its the 2-disc but the sleeve says it is so.

Needless to say, I cancelled my order w/ Target online.

The single disc version only has the audio commentaries and deleted scenes. The 2 disc version has that same disc + an extra disc of extras.

Do you think if I order it online I'll get the 2 disc? My closest CompUSA is quite far away.

The good news is, yes, they have the 2-disc showing on the website for $14.99. The bad news is, shipping is $5, which pretty much kills it. You may want to print the page http://www.compusa.com/products/prod...9414&pfp=srch1 and try for a price-match somewhere else.

At these prices, Life Aquatic is going to start turning up in bulk in the used discount bins for $5-6 like Royal Tennenbaums CC. What a shame.

How is that a shame?

BTW, thanks OP. I'll pick it up tonight. I was at Costco last night, had it TLA 2-disc in my hand in the checkout line, and I managed the willpower to put it aside in hopes that I might find it cheaper (I have a hard time paying over $20 (after tax) for a movie. Heck, I have a problem paying that much for a box set).

I'll tell you, it's a good thing many of you were not collecting in the LaserDisc days. That 2 disc Life Aquatic dvd from Criterion would have been a 3 or 4 disc LD set retailing at $124.99 with a street price of $90. what a change (for the better obviously) in the DVD world. . .

That is right down the street from my office. Why did I pre-order this from DDD?

Thanks for the heads up, OP. I would've never even thought to go to Comp USA! Hopefully they'll have a copy left.

Hehehehe. Yeah. I was being sarcastic.

I've already got one coming in the mail. Is this is a regular sized case or the usual large 2 disc criterion case?

I haven't opened it but it looked like a normal sized w/ hinge. 5 left at Rockville, MD CompUSA but I had to send an employee to look for it.

Oh that sucks. I really prefer the larger double chubby cases. Is Criterion getting cheap on us or what? jerks.

No Criterion isn't getting cheap on you. Its a mass-produced title unlike their other titles. It probably saved them $$$.
