Where to buy DVD's

Ditto Much

Okay so I finally joined the modern world of DVD, and now I need to know where the best places are to get some. What I'm looking for is advice on where is cheap and has a good selection and where used shops are.




Thanks in advance

i'm not a dvd guru, so i'm sure there will be other good advice.. mine is to watch futureshop.ca for future releases.. Futureshop offers new releases for a huge discount in the first week or so that they are released.
ie, you'll get a 39.00 movie for 23.99.

Future Ship is the best imo.
They have a big selection, and the prices are unmatched. Usually around $5-10 cheaper than HMV. And they have racks of older DVDs for like $15 each.

^^ Never buy From HMV or any music store! Chances are you can get them cheaper anywhere else.

Columbia House is definitely a place to start

4 DVD's for 0.49$
1 More for 14.95$

Buy 4 more at regular price over the next 2 years.

So really, you can get 9 DVD's for 150$

That's like 16$ a DVD, and they've got a really good selection

Waiting for my first 5, I got

Gladiator
The 5th Element
The Postman
American Beauty
Shrek

Cant wait..

We got a new DTS-ES system installed in our house, and we are looking for DVD's that support this. The only 2 movies I found that have DTS-ES are Gladiator and Rush Hour 2, anyone know a website that lists what kind of music encoding is on the DVD, and categorizes them accordingly?

i just picked up ZOOLANDER and AKIRA.

zoolander was sort of cheap (HMV styles), but the akira one was DOLLAS! like $50 at silver snail!

ah well, it was worth it i guess.

its basically akira without all the fuzz and nasty video noise.

it also has the dubbed and subtitled versions on one disc, which is pretty cool.

i haven't checked the special features yet, there's bound to be some cool shit.

If you're looking for anything rare, (as in foreign, indipendant, music videos, or old stuff) I'd reccomend Bay Street Video. THey have over 5000 titles compaired to going and buying something from rogers or blockbuster when they have a selection of max 200-300. THe prices aren't that cheap, but sometimes you'll be willing to pay $30 for something you can't find anywhere else.

its at Bay and Bloor, just south of bloor on bay street.

but if you're looking for a more recent hollywood movie, you'd probably be better off buying from future shop or somewhere where the prices aren't too high

I just signed up with columbia house. But, I find the best deals are at blockbuster new or used. Then hmv and futureshop are the next best. I buy rare ones off of amazon.com(see petey wheatstraw thread).

DTS-ES is 7.1 channel surround. So 2 rear's instead of a center rear.

not really!

I just bought quite a bit of stereo equipment that is only 5.1.because there is hardly any 7.1 stuff to watch!!!!!!when there is alot of 7.1 stuff to watch I will buy the 7.1 equipment for half the price!It doesn't really matter anyway though.because as soon as you buy the best they come out with something better

yeah, my bro put his futureshop discount to good use :)

But the 7 channels is GREAT for listening to music at 7 channel stereo. You truely feel surrounded by the music from ALL sides. Sure it's still left and right stereo encoding, but it's blasting out from all around.

With the 7 channels too, you can have dolby digital 5.1, but have the extra rear 2 speakers output the same thing as the side speakers of 5.1, which kinda adds to it. But you are right, lack of stuff on DTS-ES. I wish there were more.
