i second the futureshop nomination..

especially when they get new releases. they put them on sale for the first week or so.. usually at a pretty good deal too.
plus they have bins of older stuff and they are usually dirt cheap.

My Ex Girlfriend works at Blockbuster, I get them off her for 20% off.

Sweet Deal!

I also buy previously viewed DVD's(The ones I dont care for) for 9.99$ + 20% off, it's like renting it for 1.5 times the cost, but you get to keep it permanently. She makes sure to swap the DVD with a new one, so there are no scratches.

if you are not planning on living at your place for a while (ie. a student), then columbia house is the way to go...here's what i did...sign up under an assumed name, and pick your 6 dvds for a penny, and your one at 'regular' club price ($15.99)...when it comes to the billing option, select "BILL ME"...they send the 7 dvds plus a bill for about $28...so right there you have 7 for $28...now, regularly you'd have to buy 6 or more at regular price, but you can order 10+ on you account if you send a money order (with your assumed name) for the $28 to clear the account...i've gotten 30+ dvds in the last few years for less than $100...

The Chasing Amy that was $40.00 - Criterion Edition. Most comprehensive DVD's around and do not have a large studio backing. They are independent, and therefore have to cover costs of renting studios and editing equipment that a major studio would have in house.

As for cheap DVD's

Future shop is good for mainstream movies, but you'll be hurting if you're looking for something a little off the Hollywood beaten path.

Sunrise Records is quite good too. I found the 3 DVD disc set of Brazil there for $85.00, which is a steal compared to the usual retail price of $120.00

World's biggest bookstore is decent from time to time, sometimes underselling the competition.

Music World in the Eaton Centre is sometimes as much as $10 - $15 less than HMV when it comes to some of the new releases. They also seem to have a realiable shipping agent, as I have yet to wait for something to come in there, except for some of the more obscure stuff.

The stickers were the only problem ... I couldn't get all of one off of Rush Hour 2
But oh well ... I'd rather pay $9.99 for it and have a little bit of a sticker on the back
Than pay $30+ and no sticker

HAHAHA Take that you CORPORATE BASTARD!

I've got the Chinese hookups as well :D

Too bad the DVDs don't work properly every so often, but that's the risk you have to take if you want to buy DVDs for $3.

Thanks guys for your help...

I want to find a place who has the Godfather collection for cheap..

I mean I expected to pay alot for it but still...


You know what will be a piss off...if I collect a bunch of DVD's and they come out with some newer and better gadget to play movies on...like really tiny discs or something..

What ever happened to the mini disc???

Wal-Mart. Cheapest place for DVD's. Tons of titles for under $20, and new releases are usually around $25.
