View Full Version : Should I upgrade... which B&M to visit

12-27-05, 11:45 PM
So I have several DVD's that are sealed and while I do care about them, I am pondering in upgrading them to their current 'SE' release.

Alright, before you blast me for being a sucker to the studios for asking for SE dvd's I must say I DO watch special features, and yes I find value in them, specifically ones that cover the 'making-of' / 'director commentary' / 'doc on the importance of this film'....

As I already have a reason to go to a B&M store to return my 'foolscreen' dvd I recieve for Christmas, and since I have no receipt nor idea where the dvd came from; I am seeking advice on the best place where I can return my dvd's with the least hassle and best value

The Sealed Titles are:
-Clerks CS
-Sleepy Hollow
-Office Space FS
-Angelas Ashes
-West Side Story (1disc)
-Goodfellas (snapper)

Already opened:
-Dog Day Afternoon
-The Untouchables
-Get Shorty

Note: I mainly use Columbia House to get my dvd's, thus I would use the money for titles not available at ch... Indiana Jones trilodgy... and since most B&M are charging way too much for the set, I was hoping I could get cash to use it online at a DDD or so.

P.S. Would you recommend in upgrading these films? Your advice is much appreciated

AFAIK, there's been no upgrade of the Sleepy Hollow disc.

your gonna have trouble doing that with some of those, as they are OOP and out of store systems. Plus I think that its a no no to discuss such things.

Put them up in the exchange forum, maybe someone will have what you want.

Cameron has a good point.

Dog Day Afternoon would be worth waiting for the SE early next year, but you opened it. Goodfellas is worth the upgrade too, but the snapper is OOP. Office Space is FS so get rid of that ASAP, but once again, the old version is now OOP.

Oops, definitely did not intent to cause a 'no no' .. I should of rewrote my message; Some of these were gifts, and of course I got no receipt nor store to go to (and looking online, BB.CC.Borders.etc., they seem to carry them)... but aren't their store's that take in 'used' dvd's?-I live in the NW- what stores should I go to?

Yes, there are chains like Hastings that buy used DVDs. But "Northwest" is kind of vague, so I don't see how we can help you much. For example, in the town I used to live in there were two locally-owned stores that gave great deals when buying used DVDs. We have no idea what's in your area.

This statement makes it sound like you are looking for easy stores to scam. Disucssions of this nature are against forum rules.
