Best Buy Canada: BOGO Free Blu Ray Multi-packs

Posted by on April 16, 2015 at 2:00 PM

Best Buy Canada: BOGO Free Blu Ray Multi packs

Buy one and get one free on select Blu-Ray multi-packs at Best Buy Canada. Blu-rays are just $9.99 so you will receive two multi-packs, four movies, for just $9.99.

Multi-packs are a great way to get more movies for less. The Best Buy sale includes some really popular titles for adults and kids. Some multi-packs are from the same movies series while others combine two movies that might have a similar audience. Here are some adult multi-packs I recommend:

My father really likes the Transporter series; I think he already has both these films. I have heard amazing things about Wall Street – that the actors deliver powerful performances. Moulin Rouge should be a classic, though I confess that I have never seen it. It is on my bucket list! I rather like The Devil Wears Prada merely because of all the amazing fashion on the movie.

There are also plenty of multi-packs for children as well:

I may love Robin Williams, but I have never been able to sit through Night at the Museum. Since I have tried, twice, to make it through NatM and failed – I have never attempted the sequel. I have seen both Ice Age 1 and 2. They are both enjoyable in their own way. However, I really want to strangle that sloth like no tomorrow. My favourite character is the sabre-tooth squirrel.

Best Buy Canada: BOGO Free Blu Ray Multi packs

Now, this deal can stack on top of itself. That means you can buy two and get two free or buy three and receive three free. I tried it out with four Blu-Ray multi-packs. My total was $19.98 for all four – two were free.

Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more. Most of these movies are available for in-store pickup free of charge. If you do not plan to buy six multi-packs (total of $30) to receive free shipping, then you may just want to order and pick up instead. Oddly enough, free shipping was showing on my cart total of $19.98. I wonder if it was calculate the shipping minimum before discount.

Cineplex Canada: Free Ticket with Visa Checkout Ticket Purchase

Posted by on April 7, 2015 at 5:07 PM

Cineplex Canada: Free Ticket with Visa Checkout Ticket Purchase

Cineplex Canada has teamed up with Visa to offer you a great deal. Purchase a movie ticket via Visa Checkout and you will receive a voucher for one free general admission ticket.

This is how it works my movie loving Moosers:

  • Pick a movie you wish to see and select the ticket(s)
  • Choose Visa Checkout as your checkout option (and pay with Visa)
  • Sign up via the ‘create account’ button
  • Complete your purchase

After you have completed your movie ticket purchase, you will be emailed a voucher code valid towards a Free General Admission ticket. You can also use the code for a senior or child admission. There is a limit of one voucher code per transaction no matter the number of tickets you purchase.

These are unique codes and can only be used once – through this link right here. The coupon code cannot be used for midnight showings, Front Row Centre Events, or alternative programming (like the ballet or opera). The free General Admission promo codes will be sent out while quantities last. However, this promotion just started on the fourth so there should be plenty left. You have until the 3rd of August, 2015 to use the voucher.

The promo code with be on the last page of the PDF file that Cineplex sends you when you buy your ticket – do not delete it! If you need two tickets for a movie, then I suggest buying them one at a time. Buy one ticket first. Then use the unique promo code to buy your second ticket for the same movie. This is the best way to get Scene points anyway. If you buy your movie tickets this way, then this is essentially a BOGO free offer.

This offer is limited to once per person/account. Since we have two Visa cards in my household, I could take advantage of this offer and my partner could create his own account to get the deal as well. While we tend to go on Tuesdays, for the cheap movies, this offer could still save us several dollars.

Note: Rumour has it that when you upgrade the Free General Admission ticket, and pay the difference, that Cineplex generates a new voucher. I cannot confirm this as I have not bought any tickets yet, but this sounds like a sweet bonus. That would be one full price ticket, one ticket for the cost of the upgrade, and then another free General Admission ticket.

Hey Moosers, what movie are you going to buy tickets for? I am considering the new Fast & Furious movie… Furious 7.

Amazon Canada: 75% Off Die Hard 25th Anniversary Collection (Now $16.79 | Was $70) *BUMP!*

Posted by on April 2, 2015 at 7:30 PM

Amazon Canada: 75% Off Die Hard 25th Anniversary Collection (Now $16.79 | Was $70) *BUMP!*

*Bump!* Yippee-ki-yay Moosers! Amazon.ca has discounted the Die Hard 25th Anniversary collection set by 75%! For a limited time, you can get it for just $16.49 instead of $69.99.

I can guarantee that nearly anyone is a huge Die Hard fan and most importantly, is a die hard fan of Bruce Willis. Along with tons of bonus features, this collection comes with the following 5 discs:

  • Die Hard
  • Die Hard 2: Die Harder
  • Die Hard with a Vengeance
  • Live Free or Die Hard
  • Decoding Die Hard

The Die Hard franchise is an absolutely iconic one and to get all of these movies such as low price is definitely a steal and one that you don’t want to miss, especially since they’re of Blu-ray quality.In fact, this review sums it up the best:

A “must have” for any true Die Hard fan. Just the right balance of fast action, adventure, violence, and humor.

The only hitch is that this collection doesn’t include the latest film in the series: A Good Day to Die Hard. Luckily, a DVD and Blu-ray combo of A Good Day to Die Hard is currently on sale for just $7 (reg. $25.99), which is a 73% discount!

Since shipping is only free on orders over $25, be sure to add a filler item. Just earlier, Avigayil wrote a great post on Blu-Ray movies that you can currently get for under $5. Check out her post for a complete list but some of the movies that she mentioned include Taken, Commando, 21 Jump Street, etc.

Even the final season of Breaking Bad has been reduced to just $20 instead of $55.99 (55% off). A spectacular show like no other, if you haven’t watched it yet, then you definitely need to get cracking on it, especially since you can get season 1 for $15 (reg. $26.99), season 2 for $14.84 (reg. $26.99), season 3 for $15 (reg. $26.99) and season 4 for $15 (reg. $45.99).

Blu-Ray Movies $5 & Under @ Amazon.ca

Posted by on April 2, 2015 at 6:00 PM

Blu Ray Movies $5 & Under @ Amazon.ca

Yes my dear Moosers, we have moved into the land of super cheap Blu-Ray movies to flesh out your budding collection. In this post I feature $5 and under Blu-Ray movies from Amazon Canada.

There are eleven Blu-ray movies that I could find at this price point and lower. A couple I have mentioned before, but most are new due to recent price drops. I will talk about a couple of my favourites and then make sure you have links to the rest.

American Psycho is a classic movie featuring the heartthrob Christian Bale (also known as Batman). Based on a novel about the “me” culture rising in North America, American Psycho is a dark satire with plenty of sex and violence. Originally $19.99, this Blu-Ray movie is on sale for $4.99.

Some people watch Resident Evil: Retribution just to see a hot girl in tight fitting clothing. I can understand. Milla Jovovich looks smashing in this movie. Feast your eyes on plenty of zombies from the Umbrella Corporation as well. Originally $19.99, this Blu-Ray movie is now on sale for $4.88.

I think Moonrise Kingdom (Blu-ray/DVD Combo) may be the hidden gem in this entire sale. It features one of my favourite actors, Edward Norton, as well as the notorious Bruce Willis. All critics on Rotton Tomatoes give the movie a wonderful 94%. Their consensus is:

Warm, whimsical, and poignant, the immaculately framed and beautifully acted Moonrise Kingdom presents writer/director Wes Anderson at his idiosyncratic best.

This looks to be a sweet story about two young kids who fall in love and run away while the authorities and other concerned people try to find them. I do not remember this moving coming out in 2012, but it is one I might want to add to my collection. originally $22.99, the movie is on sale for $5.

There are several other movies you really want to check out as well:

Some of these Blu-Ray movies come with the digital editions as well. Overall, they are fantastic buys with a lot of promise for people with varying taste. Choose from dramas, horror, comedy, and more.

Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more at Amazon Canada.

Amazon Canada: Interstellar Blu-Ray/DVD/Digital HD Was $43 | Now $17 (FS @ $25) (EXPIRED)

Posted by on April 1, 2015 at 10:30 AM

Amazon Canada: Interstellar Blu Ray/DVD/Digital HD Was $43 | Now $17 (FS @ $25) (EXPIRED)

A movie that’s been getting a lot of buzz lately is Interstellar with Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain and Michael Caine. Amazon’s got a really great price on it right now, with the combination blu-ray, DVD and digital HD fetching only $17.24, with a regular price of $42.99.

With the ultimate sci-fi story, time on earth is over and man needs to figure out where they’re now going to live. Of course that means in space. A team of explorers take to looking at the stars and planets for a place to bed down mankind. But, it isn’t as simple as pitching a tent and claiming the space “mine”. In the same fashion of Armageddon, the other save the planet movie of one name with a hot aging leading actor, the main character has to decide between leaving his family or saving the world. That’s a tough choice man.

IMDb gives it a total of 8.8 stars, which is quite a good rating for that site. Since this isn’t a movie I wouldn’t typically want to watch, this review from IMDb has me convinced I should pop a bowl of popcorn and try it out:

‘Interstellar’ was incredible. The visuals, the score, the acting, were all amazing. The plot is definitely one of the most original I’ve seen in a while. Most of the critic reviews have said that some bits are a little too unbelievable, but I have to disagree. Yes, there were some parts that were definitely in the “fi” part of sci-fi. But the thing is, ‘Interstellar’ deals with concepts that we know very little about.

Amazon’s price is the best around, trust me, I looked. Best Buy does sell it as its regular price of $24.99, so Amazon’s regular price is a bit inflated. Walmart sells it for $24.96.

In order to get free shipping on this item from Amazon, you’ll have to get your cart up to $25. You could add the movie The Theory of Everything to your cart, which is said to be a must-see as well, with a regular price of $29.99 and now $22.99, which is also lower than the other stores I checked.

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

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!

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)

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)

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.
