All DVD exclusives and freebies - 5/31/09 and ongoing

This post will list all DVD exclusives and freebies found for the release week of 5/31/09 to 6/06/09.

New release price comparisons in their own weekly threads.
Thread "instructions" spoilered.
Spoiler:
These weekly threads are for the posting and discussion of that particular week's DVD exclusives and freebies.

These lists will likely be incomplete until Wednesday or so, since DVDs are released on Tuesday and one of us needs to visit all the stores to confirm things.

Links to the master list and to the previous and next week's thread are below.

Volunteers needed: I regularly go to Best Buy and Target; but don't visit the other stores every week. If you work at or regularly go to the Wal-Mart, FYE/TWEC chains, Costco, Borders, K-mart/Sears, Barnes and Noble, Blockbuster, Toys-R-Us, or any other store that has DVD exclusives; we'd appreciate any updates you could give us. I am slowly "retiring" from my weekly chain crawls, and will need your help to keep these threads useful.

I thought everybody pronounced, or at least knew that many others pronounced, Target as Tarjay.

From what I heard, by giving it a foreign (French?) pronunciation, it makes the store seem more upscale. Target (tarjay) is no longer a discount store but a trendy boutique. At least that is what I have heard. It is supposed to be a goof. I call it the place that doesn't price match.

target was dying in the late 90s and needed to improve sales or just die. they hired a big ad agency to redo what target is. said ad agency stripped target down and rebuilt their stores interior and exterior, ad campaigns, products, marketing focus, target demographic, etc. and now they are more or less what they intended to be - a chic discount store. ergo tarjay.

if you guys remember those cool print ads, i think it all started with the ones that made fun of fashion ads. for example, i recall one of a pretty woman wearing a dress and a lampshade. the ad pointed out that the dress was $20 and the lampshade was $15. or something like that.

of course, most of the above is prolly very inaccurate

The Woodstock Ultimate Collector's Edition DVD Set is not really a popcorn tin packaging. It's a bongo drum.

Sorry, I meant nothing new of interest, as we've been talking Woodstock for a week or so. I haven't decided which version, if any, I'll get. Reminds me of the fiasco of tracking down all those KISS exclusive discs a couple years ago.

Reportedly, the Amazon exclusive is similar to Target's. The 2nd disc is different than the normal 2nd disc, with 3 exclusive performances and 3 exclusive featurettes.

just fyi, the target woodstock is pretty huge. im actually not sure if the case is supposed to be a bongo drum or not, but it looks like the top of supposed drum is a tambourine too. all housed in a 9.5 inch high cylinder with a 9 inch radius. it seems bigger though.
