Deadpool on DVD (and Blu-Ray, and Digital, and postcards…)

So, Deadpool hit home media this week.

No, I do not count the “early” release digital-only from a few weeks back.

And after looking online to see if there were any fun exclusives, I went with Target. They have bonus postcards…and this edition was “on sale” to match the “regular get it at whatever retailer with no exclusives” edition’s pricing.

Plenty of extras, too, so I didn’t even bother to consider/look at the DVD-only edition (especially for the First Week On Sale pricing being so similar!).

As far as I can tell, outside of the “bonus” postcards, the only difference in Target‘s edition is the red plastic case instead of blue. And I’m totally ok with that!

The postcards included seem genuine/usable…and I’m actually half considering putting some to use.

…Or they might just stay in the case and be forgotten about. But since I paid the same for this ad I would have for one without ’em…not a big deal either way.

Still…very glad for the “combo edition” that certain publishers seem wholly opposed to anymore…especially for the price, if not principle.

Next step is actually sitting down and (re)watching the film…and certainly the extras!

On NOT Buying X-Men: Days of Future Past

This is the second major disappointment for me, for a movie on home release that I was previously QUITE looking forward to purchasing.

After being pretty satisfied last year with the BR3D/BRD/DVD/Digital release last year of The Wolverine, I thought for sure I’d be ok with X-Men: Days of Future Past. BUUUUUT…. The so-called “Ultimate Edition” is Blu-Ray 3D, Blu-Ray, and Digital.

Where the HECK is the DVD in the combo?

And for the Wal-Mart exclusive, a reprint of BOTH chapters of the original story…but it’s apparently some really skinny, tiny thing and not even a digest-sized or “mini” graphic novel. AND the box isn’t even sized properly for the item’s inclusion!

The box is just an oversized thing that caves in and will surely DUMP the blu-ray case right at without provocation. If I didn’t turn the package over and squint at it and really stare to see in through the plastic, I’d’ve sworn they FORGOT to include the “Exclusive Edition” comic or that it was actually some “digital bonus” or such.

So what of a NON-“Ultimate” edition?

Blu-Ray/Digital.

Again… Where. Is. The. DVD?!?

And this box has the same issue as far as that “bonus” comic.

There’s also a properly-sized cover version of…Blu-Ray/Digital. And there’s a coverless DVD.

I’m not interested in Blu-Ray 3D. I’m not interested in seeing my movies in 3D, PERIOD, theater or otherwise. I don’t have a 3D Blu-Ray player or 3D tv or the glasses or such. I’ve only reluctantly “upgraded” to Blu-Ray in the last several years, still QUITE happy with all the bargain DVDs and such I find and tv-on-dvd and all that.

I don’t mind (occasionally) paying a couple dollars more for a Blu-Ray/DVD combo…I can play the dvd in my computer, or pretty much anyone/everyone I know “at least” has a dvd player, so it’ll be watchable elsewhere/with others…even as I have the capability of watching the Blu-Ray while at home.

But this crap with putting 3D BluRay with BluRay and not including a DVD (even as a “bonus” if nothing else)?!?

Nah…sorry.

I’ll stick with the Redbox.
