Ordered another steelbook today from a nice gent hailing from Seattle.



Now I have two editions of ApocNow, but this one will be displayed.

Another great thing about blu-ray.com is the trading/selling section. Brand new mint BD's for a huge discounted price. Tons of people will buy a movie, watch it once and then sell it for cheap. Also, lots of people who are just looking to unload their collections for whatever reason.

I ordered a bunch from a fellow out of New Jersey today for $80.

Forgetting Sarah Marshall
the Fountain
Gone Baby Gone
Halloween [1978]
the Nightmare Before Christmas
Stranger than Fiction
Trick r Treat
Ultimate Matrix Collection

Retail value: $113, so I saved $33.

Total collection finally cracks 100, with 104.

Edit: I actually paid $75 for that haul so I saved $38.

Ordered a few more this morning, Canadian FutureShop exclusive Drive with slipcover:




Studio Canal version of the Deer Hunter. It's not even released in the states at all.



French Mean Streets, also not available in the states.




Studio Canal the Pianist, once again - not available in the states.

Yeah I can't wait for those to arrive.

Once again I'd like to reiterate the trading section on Blu-ray.com

Scored another 6 BD's last night for $44.50, saved nearly $24 on the lot.

3:10 to Yuma
Gran Torino
Kick-Ass [blind buy]
Role Models
Swingers
Tropic Thunder

I don't think I'll ever buy previously released titles through Amazon ever again. So much to save buying used from reputable sellers. They provide detailed pictures so you know you're not getting damaged products and ship everything much better than online retailers. They used protective popcorn and extra bubble-wrap and shit. Off the chain!

Now have 15 Blu-rays to my collection.. trying to figure out what I want next. Seriously contemplating whether I should order the LOTR box set for 50 bucks.

Why doesn't WB have an insider reward program for Canada?

Ive seen it on sale for around 30 bucks a couple of times.. been strongly considering it. Just keep putting it off though.

Also, I'm up to 33 once my mail arrives.

Yeah I've seen it for 30 occasionally on like buy, and other sites.


I'm in the 20s now, unless you count parts of trilogies as individual in that case it goes to 30-ish. The only trilogies I count are the star wars ones as individual disks.

Also if the Bond collection wasn't formatted in whatever format the UK uses, I'd be on that shit so fast. It's way cheaper there, as opposed to stateside here.

Yeah the only trilogy I own so far is LOTR and its not a box set so I count them individually.

And Godfather is $34 CAD right now on Amazon.ca

Even though your dollar is barely stronger than the American right now...I can save 70 on the bond collection if I get it from .ca

And like 3 bucks if I get the godfather there.

Haha yeah every once in a while we get some deals that make it worth ordering. I've yet to find anything cheap enough on .com that I want bad enough to order though.

And the Bond Collection looks sick but theres no way I'm dropping that much money lol.
