    It has gone to a guy on the Blu-ray.com forum, who won my free draw.

    The BD is still in print, and comes highly recommended.

    :righton: Thanks for the reminder, I will try and get a copy of this. I love the MoC dual-format releases.

    You’re welcome.

    I love MoC, too. I have collected the label since 2007 and have a full set of their releases, including all OOP titles.

    Zach and Miri on Blu for $2.99. The cover art is the censored version of the film’s title but the film itself was never censored.

    Most of the Goodwills near me charge $5.99 for movies, which is ridiculous. But this store was charging only $2.99.
  5. Justin Long is hilarious in this as Brandon the gay porn actor.
    He has this exchange with Zack after telling him he makes movies with all male casts:

    Zack : Oh ,like 'Glengarry Glen Ross'?
    Brandon: More like 'Glen and Gary S*** Ross' Big Meaty C***'

    The Goodwill stores around here charge $1.99 for used DVDs (and/or CDs)... They used to charge higher prices if it was, let's say, a complete season of a TV show on DVD: Those were usually priced at $3.99 (a little higher if it had more than 4 DVDs in the set). About a year and a half to two years ago, they went to the flat pricing for all used media.

    I totally agree with you that $5.99 is ridiculous for used movies at a thrift store.

    One charity shop is selling DVDs 10 for £1. Others 4 or 5 for £1. Sets maybe dearer, depending on the store. Some charge extra for sealed copies. There's a glut of some titles even at those prices.

    I like Mystic Pizza !!!
    Some Like it Hot shows up on TCM from time to time

    I go to flea markets constantly looking for vinyl and dvd/bluray. Recently I nabbed these DVDs for $1 and under:

    The General (Kino)
    Return of the Living Dead II (rare, but after watching, sucky)
    Four Sided Triangle (pre-horror Terence Fisher)
    This Island Earth
    THX 1138
    When Time Ran Out (love me some big stars getting killed by bad SPFX)
    Land of the Pharaohs (Hawks last movie)
    Angelique 5 Film Collection (thrown in when I complained about scratches)
    a ton of 20th Century/WB archive classics like God is My Co-Pilot (don't worry, my co-pilot has the controls, he is very goo....CRASH)

    I also got some bluray for $2:

    The Frighteners 15th ann.
    Godzilla vs. Kong
    Jackie Chan's First Strike (brand new)
    Venom & Spiderman: Homecoming (just so I can let folks at work watch them.)

    But the real score was Queen Greatest Hits and Best of Blondie in VG condition for $4.

    They can't give away DVDs and Blu Ray's at the moment. In a couple of months they'll be paying me to take them.
