Chances are you are probably purging your home of unnecessary items after spending every waking minute inside in 2020. That’s great, because it just means you’ll have more room to fill your bookshelves (or DVD shelves or wherever you store your physical media) with these excellent Black Friday deals.

We’ve scoured the internet for rock-bottom prices on some truly incredible films and TV shows, from major action movie franchises like “Mission: Impossible” and “Jurassic World” to massive Criterion-curated collections of films from Federico Fellini and Ingmar Bergman that are marked down 50% or more.

This is just the beginning, so check back throughout the week as we approach the big day itself for more bargain-priced television and cinema that are worth that precious shelf space.

Ingmar Bergman’s Cinema (Criterion Collection) [Blu-ray]

An $18 Amazon coupon brings the price of this massive, region-free Blu-ray set down to $132 — a bargain for the obscene amount of content you’ll get with Criterion Collection’s comprehensive collection of Ingmar Bergman’s films, put together in 2018 in celebration of the Swedish filmmaker’s 100th birthday. You’ll get 39 of his films, from rare early outings to essential classics (“The Seventh Seal,” “Persona,” “Fanny and Alexander”) and 18 never before released by Criterion, arranged as a curated film festival with “opening” and “closing” nights. You’ll also get 11 introductions, six audio commentaries, and two rarely seen documentary shorts by Bergman; more than five hours of interviews with Bergman and his key collaborators; behind-the-scenes footage; trailers; featurettes; and a 250-page book.

“Mission: Impossible” – 6 Movie Collection [Blu-ray + Digital]

Here’s a fun drinking game to play as you make your way through Tom Cruise’s “Mission: Impossible” oeuvre: Drink every time Tom Cruise does his Tom Cruise run. But make sure sometimes your beverage is water — for safety. Because you might not remember what’s going on by the time you reach the series’ finest film, 2018’s “Fallout.”

Essential Fellini (The Criterion Collection) [Blu-ray]

Save 50% on the Criterion Collection’s latest mega-set, a collection of the works of pioneering Italian director Federico Fellini. The Essential Fellini set includes 14 of the director’s films including 4K restorations of 11 theatrical releases, several feature documentaries, and multiple audio commentaries, archival interviews with stars and collaborators, video essays, trailers, two lavishly illustrated books with essays and images, and more.

“Parasite” (The Criterion Collection) [Blu-ray]

The Criterion edition of the groundbreaking Oscar-winning phenomenon “Parasite” includes features approved by director Bong Joon Ho, with a new 4K digital master, commentary from director Bong, a black and white version of the film with a new introduction by Bong, new interviews with Bong and his crew, a master class featuring Bong from the 2019 Lumière Festival, and more.

“1917” [Blu-ray]

Fact: It costs less to buy the Blu-ray release of “1917” than it would to rent the film on Amazon or Apple TV — so why not purchase your own copy of Sam Mendes’ World War I drama, which comes complete with a complimentary digital copy?

“The Office” Complete Series [DVD]

“The Office” leaves Netflix at the end of the year before heading to its new streaming home at Peacock, so make sure you can watch it anywhere, any time with your own physical copy of the sitcom. If you want it on Blu-ray, that’ll be a steep $102.

“John Wick” Chapters 1-3 [Blu-ray]

Watch Keanu Reeves kick ass with this Blu-ray and DVD set featuring the first three films in this action franchise about an ex-assassin who returns to the game after the death of his wife (and puppy).

“Trolls World Tour” [Blu-ray]

If you’re a parent and managed to skip the pricey rental of this first film to get a wide release on digital after the pandemic hit, this Blu-ray/DVD/digital combo is just $6 — if you think of it in terms of how many watches your family will get out of this delightful sequel to the 2016 hit, that’s pennies per view.

Rocky: Heavyweight Collection (“Rocky”/”Rocky II”/”Rocky III”/”Rocky IV”/”Rocky V”/”Rocky Balboa”) [Blu-ray]

This 40th anniversary edition features Blu-rays of the six films about Sylvester Stallone’s iconic character, plus a slew of remastered special features.

“Friends” The Complete Series (Blu-ray)

Still can’t get HBO Max on your TV? Get the Blu-ray box set of “Friends” so you don’t have to worry about streaming service arguments. It’s only $50 on DVD, if you prefer that format for some reason.

“Fast & Furious” 8-Movie Collection [Blu-ray]

You should know what you’re getting into with this one. This is a great price for eight entire movies on Blu-ray, plus digital codes for each.

“The Twilight Saga” 5 Movie Collection [Blu-ray]

Five cinematic masterpieces for the price of one? A bargain. Get it on DVD for $9.99 if you prefer.

“Portrait of a Lady on Fire” (The Criterion Collection) [Blu-ray]

Another of Criterion’s 2020 releases is this ravishing French romance about an artist, Marianne (Noémie Merlant), and her subject, Héloïse (Adèle Haenel), who fall in love while living on an isolated seaside estate. The new 4K digital master is accompanied by a conversation between director Céline Sciamma and film critic Dana Stevens, plus interviews with the stars, cinematographer Claire Mathon, and artist Hélène Delmaire (who created the paintings for the film).
