Watchmen Ultimate cut 5 disc set, best price found?

Hey friends-

Watching the Watchmen on HBO recently has got me to stoked for seeing the Ultimate cut which includes Tales of the Black Freighter inerwoven to the film. What is the best deal anyone has seen on this lately? I'm looking for SD, I have yet to buy into the BluRay hype. -RIC- Thanks to all that help me out!!

I never really saw this on sale...and now that it's been out for a while, doubt you'd get it for a great price.

I think I bought it at BB when it was released for around 30 or so...but can't remember.

I paid $26.99 on Amazon for it just before Christmas. Looks like the price is back up to $34.99 though. Keep watching the ads... You never know.

About $21 from Deepdiscount during their 40% sale and a $5 coupon. (Which probably isn't of much help, but it's the best price I know of.)

Re: Watchmen Ultimate cut 5 disc set, best price found?

I held off because the review at DVD Verdict mentioned that the editing of Black Freighter into the movie meant that a lot of it wasn't included in the package, meaning that if you were a true completist you would need to get the Director's Cut, the standalone Freighter release, and the Ultimate Cut to own all the footage from the film. And since the movie was released a year ago and already has a few dozen variants, why not wait until WB finally comes out with a superduper master's cut and is done with it?

Plus, that Ultimate Cut has to be in short supply because I haven't even seen it in stores yet.

BB has it for $31.99 right now. I'm going to pick it up as I have a GC to cover it. My question is this.....If I pick up the Ultimate Cut I do not need to pick up the Tales of the Black Freighter correct? I would like that Steelbook but if it's a duplicate of something included in the Ultimate Cut then I'll pass.

The Ultimate Cut contains it edited into the directors cut of the movie. Pretty sure you can't view it separately. Just in the movie. The breakdown of the discs are:
Disc 1: Ultimate Cut
Disc 2: Extras
Disc 3: Digital Copy
Discs 4+5: Motion Comics

That's the way I remember it. Not too long ago Best Buy had the theatrical for 4.99, so I picked that up, trashed the silly digital copy which was of the theatrical anyway, and replaced with my BB copy. As far as I'm concerned, I'm done with this title.

It was $12.99 at BB at one point (2-3 weeks ago), the same price as the BR version.
