    Home Video Exclusives

    Hello I'm JohnIan101 and I'm a refugee...

    I discovered this afternoon the locale where I made my forum home for the past decade is closing its doors next Wednesday (July 29th, 2015).

    My part there was heralding DVD/BD exclusives, under the thread "Free Bonuses With DVD Releases - Part 2". Part 1 was created by someone else (man, I don't want to think how huge of database will be lost to the ether). On August 18th, 2011 I decided to expand on that. That day I began posting "Past Tense".

    PT posts cover past store exclusives for a particular title, not just a date and name. But an article and review on that release. This grew and grew, taking a life of its own. Some having to be broken up into two or more parts since I exceeded the character count per post.

    I originally started this as a weekly thing, bad idea. I still can't believe I actually did this for so many months. Then it became bimonthly which it remains.

    As it stands I have, which soon will become 'had' 121 PT posts. With another ten written up, waiting to be posted. What to do? Do I let this all die? So I went looking about and found this place. Which I hope will welcome me and my verbose tidings.

    I plan on bringing back Past Tense here, under this thread; keeping continuity, these will be added every Thursday morning. I think I'm going to randomly pick entries rather than just reposting chronologically. These will not be copy and paste, no. They will be altered since many of them were period related; holidays, events and the like. Not a full rewrite, but changed to reflect this restart.

    I also plan on bringing back the extremely long winded thread, "Night Of The Living Dead DVD Retrospective". That started back in January 5th, 2012; this covers every major version released on DVD, laser disc and BD. Plus CD soundtracks and beyond. Quite comprehensive. My last update happened on July 14th, 2015.

    Oh yeah, I'm in Southern California.

    So that's my plan. Lets begin...



    Target - July 28th, 2015

    Home
    * Exclusive bonus content (bonus disc?); BD/DVD/DC combo $18.99

    CDs

    "Hozier" with 4 exclusive bonus tracks $11.99 (as I understand this comes out on July 31st)

    Information from MrTwoArms from Forum Blu-Ray dot com.


    The excusives - if any for Best Buy will be posted on Sunday morning. This is because store has decided to stop mailing their ads to most markets. Cutting off the few who got their weekly flyers early who posted the data.

    Welcome to the M-L, I'm not sure that there's much interest in CD's since this forum focuses on movies, but Hey!!!, I'm game for some new content.
    I assume that you mainly focus on the US "majors" and not on the ever growing list of specialty retailers as with Twilight Time, Code Red, Scorpion Releasing, Severin, etc....

    There was a similar blog which recently disappeared, it was run by a girl which listed the exclusives, difference was that she posted them as soon as the placeholders, or the pre-orders were up, found that useful actually.

    Again, welcome and post away......



    I can't see through walls, but I can kick your ass.

    CDs are listed because they offer exclusive content; bonus tracks or store offerings (mini posters, patches or tees).

    Yes, "US "majors". The idea is to walk into the store(s) and pick it your title - with their particular extra.

    This is my error...

    A bit of exposition should've been included which wasn't or not given proper clarification.

    The exclusives written here is American only and is solely brick and mortar stores. Not web locales. Places where you can just walk in and pick the item. Why so selective?

    Why not?

    I'm of the generation that investigates in person, not scrolling on a kiosk or web page's recommendation. To be exposed to something I had no idea I would even like or aware of its existence. While bots do their best to quantify your personal likes. It's rather difficult to extrapolate the infinate. Which is why I love just looking about my local video store (yes they still exist) or going in person to Best Buy, Target and Wal-Mart; 'what is this?' The same thing with my music. It's about personal discovery and growth. My taste in movie has changed over the years. As I can imagine, your perferences too.

    Old school? Sure, yeah why not?

    This thread's purpose is to inform the reader of their existence.

    I could include various other venues such as Canada or even internet exclusives. But you can't walk in to purchase. Granted, Canadians could. *nods*

    Asked by one of the readers is 'descriptions' on the exclusives. I'll look into that.

    I'll be honest, I'm not into Blu-Ray. If that's your thing, sway. But not for me.

    Don't have a BD player nor do I have even broadband, I'm on dial-up. Yeah, dial-up still exist.

    Anyhow, sometime places such as Best Buy offer nothing more than a sketchy description. There was a great resource for BD exclsuives, I used to haunt; looking to see if a particular title's bonus disc was a DVD and not a Blu-Ray. Yeah, I would buy the BD set and ditch it just for the bonus DVD. I have a friend who owns a used video store - I sell it to him.

    But it closed shop or rather was shut down. I loved that place, they were detailed and listed exclusives months in advance.

    Thanks for clarifying,

    Personally, I have very little use for information limited to "Brick and Mortar" and "DVD" exclusives, the only time that I do take a trip to a store is for exchanges, or simply because stock has run out online.
    Excluding BD's to boot, well...... that's a total game changer, but Hey!!!!, to each their own.
    Good luck with your thread, I'm sure someone will find it useful.

    I can not make out, the exclusive for "NCIS" is. Target's own website doesn't even mention it; the bonus - not the title. And I've done web searches with no results.
