Canada Canadian Tire - Blu-ray Deals!

Depending which location you go to, most carry blu-rays, and for the most part not a single title I have seen has been special, and neither have the prices.

Today I stumbled upon Appaloosa and Eastern Promises "Metal Packs" not sure if they are seperate from previous blu ray steelbook releases, but for 9.99 I figure that is a steal. (even though Eastern Promises was painful to watch 1st time)


I will be sure to post anymore deals I see throughout the holidays as I am an active CT customer.


(If there is an existing Canadian Tire thread, this can be moved of course, just hadn't seen one here.)

Ditto. 2 CT's in town and never seen any movies - but, I'll definitely keep an eye out. These 2 titles mentioned in particular I have been looking at getting the steelbooks, but haven't been able to find them at a price point I liked.

Yeah... thanks for the heads-up on the BDs...

I knew CT had movies -- I managed to pick up the live Anderson, Bruford, Wakeman and Howe concert on DVD for $8 there a couple of years ago -- I've never seen Blus. Have to have a look now!

They've had blu's for a while, but always seemed pricier than other stores, so never bothered to mention it. I did buy Altitude from them last year at $11 but then seen it was $9 elsewhere and felt ripped off haha

I have seen BDs at one CT for about 6 months, like the other posters have written however, they were not deals so I did not bother to post about them.

No dice at one of the stores in town (no blu's at all, just DVDs); hoping to check the other store tomorrow.

Thanks for the tip! Went out this morning and picked up The Artist, Moneyball, Blue Valentine, Warrior, and Sunshine Cleaning. I was very surprised to find Take Shelter there for $9.99 as well.

Did not find THE ARTIST at my Canadian Tires.

These all looked to be more inetVideo blus, but newer titles.

Also saw lots of old DVD TV series and 80s movies. Was tempted to get THE SURE THING for $3.99. They also had the tin box anthology for SUPERMAN for $19.99. A great deal for six movies and some even say they are superior over the Blu-rays.

I can only speak for the first film, but due to the filmstock and how it was shot, it didn't exactly make for great PQ. The BR was still superior, just not overwhelmingly so. The packaging and extras are definitely superior if I remember correctly though.

That same inaccurate excuse was made for Terminator and numerous others. New scans in competent hands (meaning grain lovers instead of haters) would produce much better BDs.

I saw the superman films when first released and there was nothing wrong with the filmstock. And not having a poor memory, I recall them well and could easily spot what was first unit stuff, 2nd unit and film library footage.

Geoffrey Unsworth was responsible for the haziness as shown in the first movie. However, I'm too young to have seen the movie when it was first released, but on every home video release, I've always found the colours to be too muted, and that everything looked too soft. It should looks better than it does now on Blu-ray, but it doesn't.

I do believe that they can do better with the original movie, the video quality on the Blu-ray left a lot to be desired. I think the movie would be better off in the hands of someone who knows how to restore a film, like Robert Harris.

The original Terminator movie, I've always had issues with the video quality of that one. Even though the movie had a low budget, it was still shot on 35mm filmstock. They definitely can do better than the Blu-ray edition that has been around for ages.

I didn't say there was anything wrong with the film stock, but Kodak 5247 had unique characteristics. Combined with the intentional soft focus look of Superman, it produced a certain look. Not bad by all means, and I kind of like it, but it didn't exactly make for a blu the average viewer would get excited about.

Having shot on motion picture film, I appreciate grain. I appreciate blu for finally being able to show us the characteristics of film stock. I applaud Predator, Superman, and yes...The Terminator for this. Saying this helps them look better though, is up to the viewer.

How are the special features superior, though? It looks to me like they included everything for the bluray release.
