Thanks for the fine review Matt. I've preordered my 4K disc and will be picking it up on Tuesday morning. A fine film that I will revisit for my third viewing of it. The movie looked and sounded fantastic in my second viewing which was in a Dolby Cinema theater.

Ah, yes...now, if only WAC would put out "What Price, Hollywood?" on BD;
then all FIVE versions would be finally available.
But, until then, I guess I'll just have to be happy with my Garland, Gaynor, Gaga and Babs.:cool:

An old habit of mine, but I always manually set my audio track and also the subtitles if they're available on the disc before playing the movie.
I do the same thing — all the way back to my DVD days. Too many times a disc defaults to a different audio track than the one I desire.

Very strange - I redeemed my code last night on Movies Anywhere, and it appears this movie is not available, not even to purchase, from Amazon Prime Video.

I wonder if Amazon and Warner are having a feud again, this time over digital titles.

Not sure about Amazon as I never stream there but it was immediately available in 4K on iTunes and Vudu.

I picked up the regular Blu today at Target (my wife had $15 worth of complementary gift cards, so we paid about $9.00 for it). I was disappointed to discover that the Target exclusive was sold out. I had not realized that they had one.

Was anyone able to secure a copy? How much should I lament that I didn’t get one?

@Mike Frezon covered this in the Roundup this week.

I don't have one, but as I recall, the listing for the exclusive version on their website (which I can't find now) said that it had "extra content" but didn't say what the extra content was. It also didn't say whether that content was on a disc or tied to a download. When they can't be specific about what the extra content is, I don't feel the need to go chasing after it. My guess based on past Target exclusives is it probably includes a featurette or two, or maybe a Q&A with the cast or something. I used to chase after exclusives but now I'm perfectly content with the basic edition which I have.

Would it have been nice to see what that extra stuff held back for Target is? Sure.. I got the Target exclusive version of La La Land a couple years back, which did have its exclusive content on an actual disc, and it was a taping of a post-screening Q&A somewhere. I found it interesting to watch once but haven't looked at it again. Since the Target version and the basic version were the same price in that case, I was happy to take the Target one. But according to @Mike Frezon 's work in the Roundup, the Target edition is $26.99. That's more than I paid to Amazon for the standard edition, which I thought was already overpriced at $24.96. Even if Target had advertised their exclusive version with more detail, I doubt I would have been willing to pay more for a featurette I'd more than likely only watch once.

So this is a particularly long-winded way of saying I don't know what's on the Target edition for this film, but I doubt I'm missing anything Earth-shattering. YMMV.

Thanks! There is an 8 min. featurette on you tube that may be part of the Target disc.

The Target Exclusive is a 20 minute featurette “Behind The Scenes” on DVD. I’ve watched the first 5 minutes which documents Bradley Cooper learning to play the piano and taking vocal lessons to lower his SPEAKING voice a full octave. Pretty interesting so far.
