Today Only: 73% Off Best Of Warner Bros. 100 Film Collection   Now Just $164 (Was $600) @ Amazon Canada (+ FS)

Calling all movie buffs, here’s an offer from Amazon that you definitely won’t want to miss! Until the end of the day today, you can save a whopping 73% on the Best of Warner Bros. 100-film collection. Originally priced as high as $599.99, it’s now down to just $163.99 — wow! Plus, it comes with absolutely free shipping.

If we think about it this way, each movie was originally $6 but is now down to just $1.64 per movie — pretty amazing if you ask me.

This is the world’s largest film collection on DVD and also includes all 22 of Warner Bros.’ Library’s Best Picture winners. These are presented in a book via 55 discs, along with two documentaries:

  • Tales from the Warner Bros. Lot
  • The Warner Bros. Lot Tour

The selection of movies range in years, with the oldest one being from 1927, The Jazz Singer, and the most recent one being 2006’s The Departed. Luckily, once you click over to Amazon’s site, all of these are arranged from the oldest to the most recent.

Here are just some of the oldest movies:

  • The Jazz Singers (1927)
  • Broadway Melody of 1929 (1929)
  • The Public Enemy (1931)
  • Cimarron (1931)
  • Grand Hotel (1932)

And some of the most recent ones:

  • The Departed (2006)
  • Million Dollar Baby (2005)
  • The Notebook (2004)
  • Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (2001)
  • The Matrix (1999)

The first Lord of the Rings movies are also all included: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001), The Two Towers (2002) and The Return of the King (2003).

Other noteworthy movies that are sure to excite some of you include but are not limited to:

  • Superman, The Movie (1977)
  • The Shining (1980)
  • The Outsiders (1983)
  • Full Metal Jacket (1987)
  • Lethal Weapon (1987)
  • Driving Miss Daisy (1989)
  • Batman (1989)

I have to admit that I was definitely surprised to see “Interview with the Vampire” from 1994 on the list. It’s definitely an amazing movie that is worth watching but it’s still kind of surprising that it’s on the list of the best movies, isn’t it? Although then again, I guess it’s not that surprising considering that both Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise are in it! Today Only: 73% Off Best Of Warner Bros. 100 Film Collection   Now Just $164 (Was $600) @ Amazon Canada (+ FS)

The Office: Complete Series On DVD Was $230 Now $63.49 @ Amazon Canada! (EXPIRED)

Posted by on March 21, 2015 at 9:14 AM

The Office: Complete Series On DVD Was $230 Now $63.49 @ Amazon Canada! (EXPIRED)

*** BUMP – there’s been a further price drop on this item at Amazon. When we first published this post, it was $89.99. It’s now dropped to $63.49! ***

That’s what she said. Today’s deal at Amazon is for the complete series of The Office on DVD – normally selling for $229.99, you can now purchase this set for $89.99 only $63.49. You’ll also get free shipping with your order!

The Office: The Complete Series on DVD is currently on sale for $172.99 at Best Buy and Future Shop. It’s also $165 @ Walmart.ca.

Oh, how I loved The Office – its dry humour that gave us a glimpse into a, often-mismanaged Scranton, Pennsylvania paper company known as Dunder Mifflin was a ground-breaking show for its time. It intrigued me when I first watched it back in the mid-2000s, since I didn’t hear the obligatory laugh-track in between every joke on the show.

Remember when TV shows had to remind us when we were supposed to laugh? After watching The Office, it kind of ruined many shows with laugh-tracks for me (at least the newer ones – I will always love Seinfeld and The Fresh Prince of Bel Air).

Either way, I really enjoyed watching The Office. It was a thoroughly enjoyable series with memorable characters such as Dwight, Andy, and of course, Michael Scott (played by Steve Carrell). One of my favourite lines in the series is when Michael Scott (the manager of the Dunder Mifflin office in Scranton, PA) is trying to motivate his employees, and has the following inspirational line written down on chart paper: You miss 100% of the shots that you don’t take. -Wayne Gretzky -Michael Scott. 

The last few seasons aren’t as creative or hilarious as the earlier seasons, but they’re still fun to watch. Mindy Kaling of The Mindy Project also rose to prominence during her time on The Office.

Get this great DVD set before it’s sold out! Happy hunting, Bargainmoosers!

BBC Movies & TV BOGO Free @ Amazon Canada

Posted by on March 10, 2015 at 12:57 PM

BBC Movies & TV BOGO Free @ Amazon Canada

I think I just had a heart attack. Amazon Canada has an incredible promotion on BBC series right now. Buy One, Get One Free on a plethora of BBC television series’ and movies.

I have never seen a promotion quite like this before from such a major content producer. The BCC produces some of the greatest content on this planet, including the legendary Planet Earth series, Dr. Who, and more.

This is a limited time offer; I do not know when it expires. The lowest priced items will be discounted to free with a maximum of three free items per order. As a massive fan of the BBC Nature documentaries, I immediately looked for the titles missing from my collection.

Earthflight: The Complete Series (BD) [Blu-ray] is a recent release by BBC Nature that follows the migratory path of birds. This Blu-ray set is on sale for the lowest price it has ever been on Amazon as well! Originally $49.98, Earthflight is now only $19.96. I would pair this DVD up with something similarly priced so I get the best discount.

I have long admired the Wonders of the Universe [Blu-ray] disk set. I was really into stars as a child, and that is the one thing that all my other BBC Earth sets do not really talk much about. That is no surprise as the theme of BBC Earth is ‘Earth’ and getting to know your planet. However, I want to learn about beyond my planet. Wonders of the Universe was $30.98 and is now $22.93.

There are three sets of ‘Wonders’ documentaries, each with a slightly different theme. Amazon Canada has two of the three, so I would also purchase Wonders of the Solar System [Blu-ray], which is on sale from $43.98 down to $33.45. If I purchased both of the Wonders Blu-Ray sets, I would only pay for the Solar System one and get the Universe for free.

I am overwhelmed by my choices! I have long wanted to purchase Madagascar [Blu-ray] as it is one incredible place. That Blu-ray set was $43.98 and is now $32.83. I could combine that with Earthflight above to receive Earthflight free.

There are over 600 titles included in this offer – so there is literally something for everyone. Even if you are not a BBC Nature freak like me, there are plenty of thrillers, drama, comedy, sci-fi, and more titles for you to choose from in the offer.

Amazon Canada: The Book Of Life [Blu-Ray] Only $13.49 (FS @ $25)

Posted by on March 5, 2015 at 7:55 PM

Amazon Canada: The Book Of Life [Blu Ray] Only $13.49 (FS @ $25)

Amazon.ca has the lowest price I can find on The Book Of Life (Bilingual) [Blu-ray + DVD]. Originally $43.99, the Blu-Ray set is on sale for $13.49.

I price compared with other retailers and here are the prices I found:

  • $24.96 @ Walmart Canada now
  • $24.99 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $24.99 @ Future Shop Canada

Given the competition’s prices, I figured this was a really good deal from Amazon Canada. You can score free shipping on orders of $25 or more, so check out your wish list and find something else to buy. I recommend adding on the Frozen Planet Blu-Ray series that is still on sale for $14.99 as of this post.

I was very excited to see this movie in theatres, and then I somehow missed it. The movie was just released the end of January, so I am surprised at such a great price already. The animation style is quite different – playing on the style of Mexican sugar skulls. As you can imagine, the colour and graphics are out of this world – indulge in the visually gratifying world of the dead.

Reviews are quite positive for this movie. One reviewer said:

Just took my kids to this movie yesterday; it is so visually stunning that I will go back all by myself to enjoy it again, and I’ve preordered this disc as well as the The Art Of to accompany it. What a treat; the amount of detail that went into the visual crafting is just astonishing.

The movie rates a fresh 82% on the tomato meter at Rotten Tomatoes.

Now, if you did not see an ad for this movie, then you probably know nothing about it. The Book of Life is the story of Manolo who sets out on an epic quest through magical worlds. His goal is to rescue his true love and defend his village. It is a sweet story with an amazing sound track as well. You might also recognize some of the voice cast: Diego Luna, Zoe Saldana, and the sexy Channing Tatum.

Both kids and adults will enjoy this movie. The best anime movies always have multiple levels for different ages. As one reviewer said:

For parents who are dead bored of the Disney and Pixar machines…this is a nice new surprise.

Pick this gem up for your kids and yourself.

Transformers HD Movie FREE @ Google Play Store Now!

Posted by on March 5, 2015 at 3:20 PM

Transformers HD Movie FREE @ Google Play Store Now!

Before time began, there was the Cube and things you have to pay for. Luckily, right now, you can get Transformers or absolutely free in HD quality on the Google Play Store!

I love love love this movie. Who doesn’t? Whether you have never seen it or have seen this first instalment in a series of four films, it’s worth getting just because it’s free!

It may have been released nearly 8 years ago (makes you feel kind of old doesn’t it?) but this movie is slowly turning into a classic must-watch film, especially since the fourth instalment, Age of Extinction, came out as recently as last year. Whether there will be a fifth instalment is still  unclear, but in any case, the very first one is definitely worth watching as I guarantee that you will be fully immersed in the story within the first five minutes.

Here’s a quote from the movie:

Ron Witwicky: [drives past a Porsche dealer] I’ve got a little surprise for you, son.

Sam Witwicky: No, no, no, no! Dad! Oh, you’ve got to be kidding me!

Ron Witwicky: Yeah, I am. You’re not getting a Porsche!

[laughs]

What’s curious is that while the HD version is completely free right now, the SD version is $9.99. Make sure to click on the correct version if you are asked because the SD version wouldn’t even be as good as the high definition one… and you’re definitely going to want to have the best quality of picture for the action-packed scenes… or should I say, iconic scenes like the above? Transformers HD Movie FREE @ Google Play Store Now!

Keep in mind that, as with any Google Play Store freebie, you need to first of all have a Google Play Store account and second of all, have a method of payment linked to the account. You won’t be charged for anything, but you nonetheless need to enter either a credit card, debit card or PayPal account. The PayPal would be my top choice as setting up an account is super easy and you can use it to pay at plenty of online stores now.

Amazon.ca: Frozen Planet The Complete Series [Blu-ray] Now $15 (FS @ $25)

Posted by on March 4, 2015 at 1:45 PM

Amazon.ca: Frozen Planet The Complete Series [Blu ray] Now $15 (FS @ $25)

Amazon Canada has discounted the BBC’s Frozen Planet: The Complete Series [Blu-ray] from an original retail price of $62.48 down to $14.99. This is the lowest price that I have seen this wonderful series from the BBC.

I price compared this set to other popular retailers. Only one store matched Amazon Canada’s price, and they only have one left in stock.

  • $14.99 @ Future Shop (1 left) (UK)
  • $19.96 @ Walmart Canada (US)
  • $29.99 @ Best Buy Canada (UK)
  • $42.71 @ Staples Canada (OOS) (US)

Now, the series at Amazon.ca is the original UK series whereas there is also a US version (noted by a different cover) that I price compared against as well. You really want the original UK series… from reviews I have read, it is just better.

I figured with how quickly Future Shop’s stock is selling out, that this is a good deal. I bought this set for well over double this price a few years ago because I could not wait to add it to my collection. I am a huge BBC nature series fan and this is yet another documentary narrated by the amazing David Attenborough.

With seven episodes spread over three discs with bonus material, you are certainly getting your money’s worth and then some. The episodes are:

  1. “To the Ends of the Earth”
  2. “Spring”
  3. “Summer”
  4. “Autumn”
  5. “Winter”
  6. “The Last Frontier”
  7. “On Thin Ice”

This documentary takes you to some of the most inhospitable places on earth – Antarctica and The Arctic – to show you the life cycle of plants and animals that dwell or migrate to these regions. Enjoy an intimate look at the survival of polar bears, penguins, killer whales, snow geese, and more.

Some of my favourite work is in the bonus materials. Each episode contains a “freeze frame” segment (at the end) explaining how the camera crews captured a particular sequence. Often it is at great peril, after weeks of disappointment, or complete fluke. You get to see behind the camera, which is incredible.

I love this series very much; it is one of my favourite documentaries to watch – especially in the summer. While watching icebergs and snow as far as the eyes can see will not cool me down in the summer heat, it gives me an escape. I completely agree with a reviewer who says:

Wow! I thought this series was great. I have always had a fascination with the polar regions and this BBC series certainly showed them at their best. It is amazing to see what different animals do in order to survive in these harsh environments.

Walmart Canada: Wolf Children [Blu-Ray + DVD] Only $19.97 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Posted by on February 27, 2015 at 3:00 PM

Walmart Canada: Wolf Children [Blu Ray + DVD] Only $19.97 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Walmart Canada has a special deal on a recently released Japanese anime title: Wolf Children. The Wolf Children [Blu-Ray + DVD] set is on sale for just $19.97 with free shipping.

Many people might wonder why I chose to write about this movie. Well, it is a very popular anime movie that has garnered a lot of attention and a lot of awards already. Among the awards, Wolf Children has won:

  • 2012 Mainichi Film Award for Best Animation Film
  • 2013 Japan Academy Prize for Animation of the Year
  • 2013 Animation of the Year award at TAF
  • 2013 Audience Award at New York International Children’s Film Festival

That is just a start; the film has won several other awards as well. On Rotten Tomatoes, Wolf Children has an amazing 93% rating, which is akin to Studio Ghibli’s masterpiece: My Neighbor Totoro.

The story line is simply beautiful. a young college girl falls in love with a man, who is part wolf. She accepts him as he is and they have two children together. The rest of the story is the heartwarming tale of a mother trying to raise two part-wolf cubs on her own. It is absolutely endearing and you will probably cry once or twice during the movie (or at least sniffle a few times). This is one of the most popular anime films out right now, and the price is the best I have seen in months. As one reviewer said:

A beautiful story for all ages. Delivery was really fast and since this was not readily available anywhere else, I was thrilled to be able to purchase from Walmart on-line.

I price compared the Wolf Children [Blu-Ray + DVD] set to other retailers. Future Shop and Best Buy both have the film for $26.99 and it is sold out on both sites. I did find Wolf Children at Amazon Canada for the same price as Walmart, but the free shipping minimum of $25 makes it not as good of a deal. Right now, Walmart Canada has limited stock so I suggest purchasing sooner rather than later.

I would be remiss to blog about a movie like this without including the trailer for it. Below, you can watch a synopsis of the story line and see the beautiful art that accompanies it.

You can also watch the full movie on Youtube, to see if it is a movie that you wish to add to your collection. Here is the link to the full film. I am going to watch it later today to see if I am going to buy the film.

BOGO General Admission @ Landmark Cinemas (Printable Coupon)

Posted by on February 26, 2015 at 9:30 PM

BOGO General Admission @ Landmark Cinemas (Printable Coupon)

3, 2, 1, it’s movie time! Starting March 1st, you can use the printable coupon available at the link below to get a free movie ticket with purchase of a general admission.

On the coupon itself, you will see in the upper right corner that this BOGO offer is only valid on March 1st, 2nd, 4th and 5th. The third of March is completely skipped because of it being Tuesday, also known as Cheapie Tuesday, during which all admissions get automatically slashed in half anyways.

Not sure what to watch? “Focus” is coming out on February 27th. It’s odd because personally, the only time that I have seen any kind of promotion for it is today on TV. Even my hubby who is an incredibly huge movie buff was surprised to see Will Smith in another movie given that his last two roles were not main ones at all. He played a judge in “A New York’s Winter’s Tale” and an ESPN reporter on “Anchorman 2″ before that. It’s a romantic dark comedy that focuses on the story of Nicky, a con-man who gets sidetracked by a young woman – surprise, surprise!

Speaking of a romantic movie, you could also check out Fifty Shades of Grey. It’s of course been highly hit or miss at the box office, with some movie viewers leaving the middle of the viewing, others love it and even more people than that boycotting. In any case, if it’s your cup of tea, then that’s another choice!

Another movie that could be interesting to watch is The Lazarus Effect, a thriller with Olivia Wilde and Donald Glover. Starting on February 27th, the plot centres around a team of medical professionals who find a way to resurrect the dead. However, when they are successful in bringing back their lead researcher back to life, things go unexpectedly haywire with a potential for the supernatural. It’s labelled as thriller, but judging by the description it does seem to have a tad of horror injected into it as well.

Moosers, which movie are you most excited to see at the box office @ Landmark Cinemas?

(Save 65%) James Dean Ultimate Collector Blu-Ray Edition Was $99 | Now $35 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca (Expired)

Posted by on February 25, 2015 at 8:41 AM

(Save 65%) James Dean Ultimate Collector Blu Ray Edition Was $99 | Now $35 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca (Expired)

Amazon has a great deal right now on the James Dean Ultimate Collector’s Edition on blu-ray. This set was $99 but you can grab your own copy including all the bonus extras for only $34.99. This item also qualifies for free super saver shipping.

James Dean is an very memorable actor from the 1950’s who tragically only starred in three well known films. His well publicized car accident that led to his immediate death at only 24 years old caused much shock and it only increased his popularity. James Dean is best known for his starring role in the iconic film Rebel Without a Cause. In this film James Dean is a teenager named Jim Stark with a troubled past who moves to a new town.  We follow Jim Stark as he proves himself amongst the kids in town with a bit of sass and bad boy attitude.  That iconic leather jacket, slicked back hair and bad boy swagger only helped cement that both guys and gals wanted to be (or be with!) Jim Stark, the bad boy from the good family.

This memorable set includes all three of Dean’s famous films. You will be able to watch Rebel Without A Cause, East of Eden and Giant all remastered for blu-ray. This set also includes many digital extras. You can watch three full length documentaries about James Dean, his films and his life including James Dean: Sense Memories, James Dean: Forever Young and George Stevens: A Filmmaker’s Journey. There are also seven other available shorter documentaries and featurettes included to give you a more exclusive behind the scenes look at this iconic actor.

If you like collectibles, this set has plenty. You will receive a commemorative book about James Dean  and three movie posters that are mini versions from the original movie posters. Also included are production notes from the films Rebel Without a Cause and East of Eden plus exclusive photos from behind the scenes.

You could pick up this set at Best Buy or Future Shop for $79.99. Walmart has this edition for $80. Archambault has this same set for a whopping $102.99. Your best bet is to pick this up at Amazon today.

There are only three reviews on Amazon. Two are very happy with the purchase, and one who is unhappy with the quality of the blu-ray digital re-mastering techniques. I do find remastering classic films can be tricky. Classic films will never have the same clean crisp images that today’s films have, though blu-ray remastering techniques will improve the image greatly. All three of the reviews are very lengthy and detailed. I have included the shortest review, which also happens to be the review that six Amazon users have marked as helpful.

If you like James Dean, or need a good gift for someone who is a fan now is the time to grab this set. I always have trouble finding gifts for my mom and she loves many of these classic films. I am  considering stashing it away for a surprise gift.

Amazon Canada: Three Blu- Ray Movies for $4.88 (FS @ $25)

Posted by on February 18, 2015 at 12:30 PM

Amazon Canada: Three Blu  Ray Movies for $4.88 (FS @ $25)

Are you looking to flesh out your movie collection while sticking to a budget? Check out the latest Blu Ray discounts where a single movie in Blu Ray format will cost you only $5 or less. On top of that, most (but not all) of these titles qualify for the $10 off three Blu-Rays or more deal so you will pay just $4.88 for three!

I looked up this section of under $5 Blu-ray movies again because there was recently two price drops on movies that moved them into this category. Taken, with Liam Neeson, dropped in price from $21.99 down to $4.88. I am actually surprised to see such a popular movie included in this section. Taken was a good movie according to me and other Amazon reviewers:

I was on the edge of my seat during most of this picture. It was VERY good. Of course, Liam Neeson is, perhaps, the biggest reason for this picture being so good. He is so convincing. I am looking forward to seeing “Taken 2″. I can only hope that it is as enjoyable as the first “Taken” is. You won’t be sorry buying this movie.

This is a good one to have in your collection, especially for this price. Pair the above movie up with two of any of the five following movies to receive three Blu-ray movies for only $4.88.

Each of these movies is only $5 right now. Add two of them to your cart with Taken and $10 will come off your order, essentially making those two movies free. That means you will get three Blu-Ray movies for only $4.88 – the price you pay for Taken. If you divide that price by movie, you are paying just $1.63 per Blu-Ray film. You cannot do better than that. I could trade them in at my local used DVD store for more than that in credit!

This is an incredible deal for three movies, even if they are a bit older. I chose Commando as it has Arnold Schwarzenegger in the movie. He can be quite entertaining. I also chose Courage under Fire as that movie is pretty darn famous. Denzel Washington and Meg Ryan lead a fantastic cast. I miss seeing Meg Ryan in movies; she was one of the actors I liked best.

Amazon.ca: Transformers Age of Extinction Collectible Statue Set Was $120 | Now $35 & Free Shipping

Posted by on February 17, 2015 at 12:24 PM

Amazon.ca: Transformers Age of Extinction Collectible Statue Set Was $120 | Now $35 & Free Shipping

Amazon.ca is selling an incredible Amazon exclusive Transformers set for 71% off the original price. Transformers: Age of Extinction – Limited Edition Gift Set with Grimlock and Optimus Collectible Statue [Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy] is on sale from $119.99 down to $34.99. as per usual, all orders of $25 or more come with free shipping.

This is an exclusive to Amazon gift set so price comparing is just not possible. I did compare the set against Amazon.com where it is currently on sale for $44.99 US. Given our exchange rate right now, that is worth approximately $55.80. I think Amazon Canada is giving the better deal here.

I have not even seen this movie and I want this limited edition gift set. It is not rocket science to figure out why: you have Optimus Prime sitting on top a massive dinosaur (Grimlock). I have mentioned before that I really like Grimlock because you cannot get better than combining a mech and a dinosaur together. It is the perfect mash-up of prehistoric and modern technology. He looks wicked awesome.

Also, who does not like Optimus Prime? The guy is a truck that turns into a huge mechanical fighting machine. He is the saviour of the day, the noble metal hero who tries to protect humanity. In short: he is everything every kid ever wanted to have in a best friend. I watched the first two movies before I got a bit tired of the weak story line and just wanted to see mechs transform and fight. It seems I am not alone in my view on the movie:

The movie was great, not because of a cheesy story script but mainly for the CGI and mecha-action. I am not a huge transformers fan but the action figure is what got me into buying this movie. I am happy with the purchase and it looks and feels authentic! I recommend getting this item!!

Now, the movie includes Blu-Ray, Digital, and DVD formats. If you were to purchase just the movie separately right here, you would pay $29.99. Therefore, for an additional $5 you are getting this awesome statue. Even if you do not like the statue all that much, you could easily resell it for profit! You can really see why this is such a great deal when the Blu-Ray set alone costs almost as much as this limited edition set with the statue.

Amazon.ca: The Hobbit The Desolation of Smaug [Blu ray] Only $13.88 (FS @ $25)

I LOVE The Hobbit movie series and plan to collect all three of the movies. Well, if you have not picked up the second film yet, then now is your chance. Amazon Canada has discounted The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug from $24.99 down to $13.88. Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more.

I made sure to price compare with other retailers to ensure you are getting the best deal. This is what other companies are selling this exact Blu-Ray for:

  • $21.99 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $21.99 @ Future Shop Canada
  • $19.96 @ Walmart Canada

Amazon Canada has the lowest price for this movie. I am stoked at this offer because, out of all three movies, this is bar far my favourite. I love the scene with the dwarves in the barrels going down the river while the orcs are trying to kill them. AWESOME!

Also, in this movie we meet the dragon. I have read The Hobbit many times over since I was a child and my favourite part was always the dragon. Not only was he a powerful force to be reckoned with – he also seemed rather intelligent. Smaug was not just another mindless beast. i think Benedict Cumberbatch portrayed Smaug very well and I love the scenes with him versus Bilbo.

Honestly, for under $14 this movie is an absolute steal. When I saw the price dropped I could not believe my eyes and I am wondering how long this offer will last. I suggest buying soon rather than regretting later. It is wicked cool that such a popular movie is on sale for such a great price right now.

Now, this Blu-Ray edition appears to give you more than just the movie according to this reviewer:

Even with the extra scenes, this is a much more action packed movie than the first Hobbit movie. If you are at all interested in how films or special effects are made, then this Blu-ray is worth the price just for all the extras. If you do not care about the making of materials, this version may not hold as much value but the extended Gandalf sequence is probably worth the extra price.

I am usually not into watching the movie extras on my disks, but this is one movie I would watch all the extras for because I love the world of The Hobbit. By the way, if you were curious about the making of Smaug or just like to see Benedict hump the ground, check this out:

HOT! Save 91% off Enders Game DVD Just $3 @ Amazon Canada

If you have been shopping for some hot deals at Amazon.ca, you are probably well aware that you need to spend $25 to get free shipping. Sometimes I find items for $23 or $24 and just can’t find a filler for a low enough price. Problem solved. For a limited time, you can purchase the Ender’s Game DVD for only $2.99. This DVD was originally priced at $32.99 so you are quite literally saving 91% off that previous price.

If you have read the Ender’s Game novel, you won’t want to miss this offer. For just $2.99 you can get the Ender’s Game on DVD, while supplies last. This Ender’s Game movie takes place in the near future. The Formics (a hostile alien race) have set an attack on Earth. If not for Earth’s hero, all would have been lost. To prepare for the next alien attack, young children are trained to be the military’s next great hope. Saying that, Ender’s Game is an epic adventure movie. If you are into adventure and action movies, you should like it. You also can’t beat the current price tag of just $2.99.

Out of 52 reviews, Ender’s Game on DVD from Amazon.ca still holds a 4 star rating. Here is one of the reviews from Amazon Canada:

I decided to check out the DVD “Ender’s Game” with my husband after he expressed an interest in watching it. Ender’s Game follows the plight of a talented youth who shows potential for military leadership. Ender is selected for specialized training that would prepare him for an upcoming space battle. The character of Ender is shown enduring great tests to sharpen his readiness alongside other adolescents who are also highly gifted. Harrison Ford plays one of the military leaders who spearheads a great portion of the training. Ender’s Game is great for those who like science fiction films with a metaphorical slant.

Personally, I have not watched this movie. I did like other science fiction films like Divergent and The Hunger Games so I am sure I would like it. For $2.99 you can’t go wrong. Speaking of great films, have you guys watched Maze Runner yet? I loved that movie!

Get free shipping when you spend $25 from Amazon.ca. If you are looking to reach that total, Amazon.ca has a pretty good bundle available right now. You can purchase Ender’s Game, Divergent and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire for just $27.98.

Great Scott! Back to the Future: 25th Anniversary Trilogy (Blu-ray) Was $65 Now $19 @ Amazon.ca (EXPIRED)

Great Scott! Back to the Future: 25th Anniversary Trilogy (Blu ray) Was $65 Now $19 @ Amazon.ca (EXPIRED)

Amazon slashed prices today on the classic Back to the Future 25th Anniversary trilogy. This Blu-ray set was $65 and is now only $19. Free shipping is available if you add another item to your cart to reach the minimum order of $25.

If you are a movie buff, it is a great time to catch up on some of your favourite films. Yesterday alone we saw Dumbo go on deep discount and went quick. Then Redbox is giving you a free rental for new customers. Then we saw the list for the Cineplex Family Favourites on Saturday mornings that looks pretty awesome. Hello Muppets!

Today’s deal is for a movie buff with a little more discriminating taste. This quality film is for a person who has a taste for adventure and bad corny jokes. Back to the Future is on sale in the full Anniversary Edition on Blu-ray and is a great cult classic film. This creative and imaginative comedy will be a great addition to your collection. I personally feel this is also a great movie to share with older kids and teenagers for a fun movie night. It is also a fun movie treat to invite a few friends over to watch and have an 80s themed evening. I can see the theme party now.

I suspect part of the reason this series is on sale today is because of the time travel that runs through the movie and it is New Years after all. Here is the 20-second version of these films. In the first film, Marty (an American teen in the 80’s) travels back in time with the help of Doc to his parents era and changes time including the moment his parents meet. In the second film, Marty McFly and Doc travel forward to 2015 to fix an issue in the future, but discover upon their return someone else has tampered with time. In the third, Marty must travel back into 1885 to rescue Doc from a premature Wild-West themed end. You may notice a few differences from the year 2015 Marty experiences and the one we have now. Most who truly love the films will agree that the first and third films are the highlight of this series.

There are extra special features included with this special edition set. One of the notes that keeps being made is that there is an aspect ratio issue with the original Blu-ray version of this trilogy. They have corrected those issues in this latest edition so you can enjoy the film in its original hilariousness.

Looking at the prices floating around the rest of the web, Amazon has this one hands down.

  • $48.11 @ Staples.ca
  • $48.99 @ Future Shop
  • $49.97 @ Walmart- Regular Edition
  • $51.99 @ Best Buy.ca- Regular Edition

Here is one reviewer who agrees that the whole house including her teenager loved these films despite the middle film not pulling its weight in the series.

I ordered this trilogy set because my teenage daughters had never seen “Back to the Future” and we love Michael J. Fox. He is Canadian, you know!! The whole idea of being able to go back to our parents’ day and even further is so exciting. Now that we live so close to 2015, it is easy to see the writers went a little too far-out in their view of the future and that’s what made the beginning of the 2nd movie a bit disappointing. Having said that, keep watching – it gets better. We absolutely loved this trilogy!

Here is another tip, Bargainmoosers. Since the difference between free shipping on this item is low you may want to check out Amazon’s Add-on program. Items that they would not otherwise be able to ship at a low cost can be added on to your order.  Most of these items are household items available at a great low price and will help you hit the minimum of $25 to qualify for Super Saver Shipping. If you choose not to add something else on to your order, shipping seems minimal. Amazon was quoting me only $2 in shipping to ship to Quebec.

This is another one disc set you may want to grab quickly so you don’t miss out. With over 300 reviews on this item I suspect many people may have their eyes on this disc set.

Bargainmoosers what’s your favourite 80’s film?

Cineplex Family Favourites $2.99 Movies for January, February & March

Posted by on December 31, 2014 at 3:30 PM

Cineplex Family Favourites $2.99 Movies for January, February & March

The Cineplex Family Favourites series at select theatres is always a Bargainmoose favourite because you get cheap movie tickets for the entire family. Pay just $2.99 per person to the following kid friendly movies on Saturday mornings at 11 AM.

We have the schedule for the next three months so just circle the dates you want and stick them in your calendar.

January:

  • 3rd: Muppets From Space
  • 10th: The Amazing Spider-Man
  • 17th: Paul Blart: Mall Cop
  • 24th: Monster House
  • 31st: An American Tail

February:

  • 7th: Big Miracle
  • 14th: The Muppet Movie
  • 21st: The Pirates Who Don’t Do Anything: A Veggietales Movie
  • 28th: The Land Before Time

March:

  • 7th: The Book of Life
  • 14th: How To Train Your Dragon 2 3D
  • 21st: Fantastic Mr. Fox
  • 28th: Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel

They will also be showing Hop on April 4th. I am most interested in some of the later movies. The Land Before Time is a classic that I have never seen, but it is on my list of movies to watch.

While we own the first How to Train Your Dragon, I have not seen the second one yet. I also think that is one of the movies that gives you the best value for your money as they are showing it in 3D instead of 2D. 3D movies are usually a $3 premium on your ticket, so your movie ticket will just cover the cost of the upgrade, let alone the movie.

I have seen clips of Fantastic Mr. Fox and it looks to be a very interesting for both parents and children. For me, it appears to be geared towards older children rather than younger.

Out of all these movies though, I am most looking forward to The Book of Life. It features a beautiful animation style and tons of Mexican Sugar Skulls. I would consider this a feast for the eyes and I cannot wait to see it.

You will note that the price has gone up this year. Family Favourites used to cost $2.50 and they now cost $2.99. Unfortunately, prices will rise but I still consider this an excellent offer, as taxes are included. Scene members receive 25 points per ticket purchased.
