Two more titles that have to be imported.
Found a really cool (albiet expensive) store downtown Toronto on Bay St called Bay St Video that carries many US-only Blu-rays. They have lots of mint slips on their movies too, and even carry the limited edition Babadook US release not available in Canada.
Might be true of Sunrise Records as well. I noticed before my local stores got shut down that one store got BDs that Hmv did not yet have but were expensive of course.

You can find a lot of the US 'exclusives' listed here at buycdnow.ca and/or thecnl.com if they are not on amazon canada, including Shout ones like Ginger Snaps & Scanners 2/3 but prices tend to around $27 and up at buycdnow and a bit lower at thecnl however sold out more.

Um, they are US exclusives because the Canadian distributors who have the rights to those films did not release blu-rays for them in Canada. They are only available on Amazon.ca and other sites as imports (and usually have a inflated price). They do not have an official release in Canada otherwise Best Buy or Wal-Mart would carry some of these titles.

I was wondering how long it would take to move the goalpost of the OP's 'not available in Canada' to 'not cheap enough'. There are sub-forums here dedicated to where BD titles are the lowest price and this thread has run it's course and might as well be locked.

I think BB USA has some exclusives that haven't made it here yet but I would have to dig around and check. And I'm surprised Zombeavers isn't available here since it was a Canadian made movie.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure what happened with the Zoolander blu-ray was that Warner released it as part of their distribution deal with Paramount and just as they did, Paramount made it be known that they were going to be making a part 2 and probably wanted to handle the release themselves so the Warner release was pulled and we'll likely see a re-release from Paramount themselves when 2 comes out. I can't see them not releasing the first one at the very least when 2 comes out on blu. I'm glad too, I managed to snag a copy and flipped it for almost $70 on e-Bay.

The thing about C&L is that ALL of their releases are imports. So even if you go there looking for, say, Clint Eastwood's The Rookie, you're getting the US release not the Canadian one.

I didn't know this thread existed until now. I keep my own list of "stuff not available in Canada (that I want)" but it's in shambles because I've imported a lot of them in the meantime.

[Forget Zoolander for now, it's been virtually impossible to get here, was pulled shortly after release in U.S./Canada, and a new Steelbook has been announced but it's release date has already been moved close to when 2 comes out, so I'm waiting for a "1+2" combo BD at this point (unless 2 is "terrible").]

Two I've been pondering, that are a "good" deal now at amazon.com:

Goodfellas, 4K remaster, single disc: US$7.50
and
Ex Machina, with DTS:X (though there's no way for the average person to play it yet), but it's DTS-HD MA 7.1 at least, though rumours are it has a slightly lower video bitrate than the Canada/UK versions, US$8.50

The Wind and the Lion
The Wicker Man (original)
Down Terrace
Kill List

That's all the BDs I can easily find, besides more obvious regional, special label, and TV stuff, titles I import get deleted from my list... Usually I buy these when I import some Acorn stuff (their prices in Canada for Canadian TV shows are typically double [at best!] what they are in the U.S., doesn't seem to be a good marketing plan, what with the huge popularity of Canadian shows there).

Doesn't seem as if eOne is releasing a 3D version of Kubo and the Two Strings tomorrow, meaning that version of the film won't be officially available in Canada. This is the first Laika release where the 2D and 3D are on separate discs, so I imagine eOne was just too cheap/lazy/dumb/complacent to produce two different combo packs whereas before they could just put out the 2D/3D US disc as a single release.

Can't say I'm surprised. eOne, like Alliance before them, is a huge pain in the ass. As if I needed more reason to import rather than buying their mediocre product.

Why is the Rush Hour trilogy not available in Canada? Does it have something to do with eOne owning distribution rights to the third film? Not being able to get my hands on a copy of Rush Hour 2 without importing is a huge bummer.

It seems American Honey isn't being released in Canada - Amazon.ca lists it as "currently unavailable" and is only selling the US version. There doesn't even seem to be a listing for a DVD release, either. That's strange considering it was well reviewed and played at one of my local cinemas. Maybe it will be released later on, but I've ordered the US version anyway.
My top 25 films:

1) Jackie Brown 2) Nashville 3)Apocalypse Now 4) Pulp Fiction 5) All About Eve 6) Blue Velvet 7) Zodiac 8) The Getaway (1972) 9) Almost Famous 10) Tenebre 11) Sorcerer 12) The Wolf of Wall Street 13) Mildred Pierce 14) The Towering Inferno 15) Talk to Her 16) Dressed to Kill 17) Rabid Dogs 18) City of God 19) The Dead Girl 20) Adaptation 21) Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind 22) Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon 23) Happiness 24) Spirited Away 25) Harold and Maude
