Default Not available in Canada

Has anyone compiled a list of movie releases not available in Canada?

I know there's a Canadian exclusives thread but what about a US one?
I'm not talking variants or differences between releases (though that could be included if desired) but actual films that are only available from in the US or from a US website.

For example

Code Red releases only available from Code Red big cartel store... doesn't ship to Canada

Code Red, Scorpion Releasing, Twilight Time releases only available from Screen Archives... luckily do ship to Canada (but exchange and shipping kill)

Zombeavers... exclusive to Best Buy US... doesn't ship to Canada

Essentially anything that hasn't been picked up by a Canadian distributor or is exclusive to the USA.

I suppose you could add Warner Archive releases to this list. I mean, you can get them on Amazon.ca from third party sellers and Amazon.com will ship them to Canada, but they aren't "officially" available.

Friday the 13 complete collection.
Zoolander (I'm pretty sure this title is OOP already but we never got it but USA did)

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.

Scream has a couple of titles. Off the top of my head: Scanners 2/3 and Ginger Snaps.

It wasn't at first but I ended up seeing it in a few different HMVs about a year after its original release.

HMV tends to carry imports so I'm not surprised but that set is SO expensive up here.

You'd think it was Canadian... should be a Canadian film... but it's actually an American film. Why we never made it is beyond me but they beat us to it.

I could have sworn Paramount released Zoolander in Canada. Would have been early 2000s and it would now be OOP but there is a 2015 re-release of the DVD so we might see a new bluray soon as well. I think they'll wait for Zoolander 2 to hit theaters though so it might still be awhile.

Doh. Thought something so Canadian would be made by us :P. I think we should make one with zombie moose now.

It was briefly released in USA during the summer but it was so limited that not too many people were able to get a copy. It also kept getting delayed. Now you can't even get a copy. I assume when 2 comes out, we will see 1 again.

I am pretty sure Zoolander was carried by BB Canada for $10 but it went quickly out of stock.

Ya, looking through things, you might be right. I just couldn't find it. I just hope they do release it again when 2 comes out.

And thats why Bill lost a bit of money from me and some of my friends who would have bought this month.
No excuse for that when other small companies ship worldwide.

He was shipping worldwide on Labour Day weekend (up to 3 items at a time). Was able to get Savage Streets and Day of the Animals (yes, I know that one is Scorpion) from him.

Cool that is good to know. I actually saw that it was playing at a theatre near me a couple weeks ago but I already got the US release so didn't bother going to see it.

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.
