Tolkien's "The Two Towers" DVD: $3.49 plus shipping (88% off)

The Daily Deal for Thursday, October 9, 2008:

is "The Two Towers" DVD, for 88% off retail price.

One film to rule them all. One film to bind them. One film to bring them all, and in the darkness bind them.

We all know what film we're talking about here. Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings. Yes, it's a three-film series, based on J.R.R. Tolkien's immortal trilogy of the same name. And yes, today's Daily Deal involves only the second film, "The Two Towers."

Serious fans won't care. This DVD, filled with significant added footage and extras, including cut scenes that add 43 minutes to the original theater-length running time, is priced at the ridiculous sum of $3.49 (plus $4.99 shipping and handling). That's 88% off regular retail price, and so low even an Orc could afford it.

But pray thee hurry, ere this treasure most rare is sold out.
