    I was looking to add to my DVD collection, without spending an arm and a leg. Have you bought any good but cheap movies as of late. Thanks

    I paid $9.98 (Canadian) for Straw Dogs at A&B Sound. Non-anamorphic, but a nice transfer. No complaints.

    Hey Brook,

    How is the Diggstown disc. I love the movie, but it was on my 'non-anamorphic no-no' list. Is it worth it to bend the rules?

    UHF can be found for under 10 bucks in a few places.

    I think Some Like It Hot can be found for $7-9...but that's the bare-bones edition. I reccomend the SE which has a really nice interview with Tony Curtis.

    Absolutely "Suicide Kings" -- I love this movie, and the extras are great!

    "Abre Los Ojos (Open You Eyes)" is under $10.00 at DeepDiscountDVD -- GOOD movie!

    Alex, it's fine, nothing spectacular. I don't have an anamorphic setup so I can't comment on that. It's one of the few mindless pure fun movies that's never gotten old with me. There's nothing that leaps off the screen as a major flaw, but this isn't one of those discs where I examine the image closely.

    I have had most of these titles for along time but they can still be had for under $10 and they are awesome films, and of course OAR!

    Pump up the Volume

    Christine

    Iron Giant

    Flatliners

    Bill and Teds Excellent Adventure

    Bill and Teds Bogus Journey

    Young Guns 1 & 2

    Thelma and Louise

    Weekend at Bernies

    Red Dawn

    Man in the Iron Mask

    Maximum Overdrive

    Eddie and the Cruisers

    Last Man Standing

    The Cable Guy

    Supernova

    War Games

    Last Action Hero

    Blair Witch Project

    The Net

    All or most of these titles can be purchased at WalMart or Kmart, and by purchasing any of these titles you are still promoting OAR, plus there are other OAR titles for under $10.

    Just stay away from Warners P&S 5.88 DVD's, such a shame, some good titles bastardized by P&S!

    Ghostbusters II (16:9, 5.1, great movie)
    The Freshman (16:9, great movie)
    Stepmom (16:9, 5.1, okay movie)
    I Know What You Did Last Summer (16:9, 5.1, okay movie)
    The Great Escape (good movie!)
    Falling Down (16:9, okay movie)
    The Man Who Knew Too Little (16:9, 5.1, commentary, good comedy)
    The Blair Witch Project (cool movie, cool DVD)
    and if you're willing to succumb to P&S, I'd recommend:
    My Blue Heaven
    Funny Farm
    Cujo
    National Lampoon's Vacation (just reduced)
    Spies Like Us
    The Great Santini
    [​IMG] Why couldn't they release them in WIDESCREEN?!
