That's MSRP, it will most likely be cheaper the first week of its release.

It's MSR.... oh, already stated.

Look at it this way buddy. stores use these type of titles as Loss leaders. that means they price them WELL below what they pay for them, and for bigger companies like best buy, buying in the hundred thousands of units, they get a good price discount. So when it's all said and done, it will be 17.99-19.99 on the day of release.

All titles have a higher MSRP then what you pay for it.

Perhaps he means why is it so expensive when it doesn't have any significant amount of extras beyond a DTS track and a documentary. The answer is that it is released by Buena Vista, and people will buy it at that price.

You can pre-order it at Buy.com for $16.99 right now, too.

So it will likely be 15-16.99 on release day.

I've decided not to buy until the complete movie comes out, and I really can't understand why any of you would either. Why buy half a movie?

Makes sense, in a logical kinda way.

I for one will be buying this movie in every incarnation it is released in. Hell I already own a Miramax screener disc.

I just decided not to support the ridiculous decision to release it in two parts. Clearly a marketing ploy. I love Tarantino, I think he's a revoluationary director / writer, but I'm only going to buy the DVD and not support the studio by purchasing a movie ticket as well. That's one less frilly shirt for you, Mr. Tarantino!!

Logic? What's that? Studios expect us not to have it I guess...

"I've decided not to buy until the complete movie comes out, and I really can't understand why any of you would either. Why buy half a movie?"

But people bought the Lord of the Ring movies, and those are only 1/3 of the big movie. So with 1/2 of Kill Bill, we're getting more!

One more new title priced at just under $20, nothing unusual here. The reason I would buy half a movie is because it's a half that stands on it's own even were there to (gasp) never come the release of Vol. 2.

I don't care about that, I'm just not buying it because it's bare bones and there will inevitably be some special edition boxed set down the road.

So then that would be the half that stands on its own where she does NOT "kill bill" and her name is NOT revealed?

C'mon NM! Agree with me. You know you want to

Her name is that important?
