Re: Canadian Blu-ray Bargains

For those who might be in the area, Toronto's legendary Queen Video is closing their last location, on Bloor in the Annex.

I popped in yesterday and the shelves were still well-stocked but the selection was nowhere near as deep as what they had at the flagship Queen Street location when they closed it two years ago. THAT place was a goldmine, and I'm glad I was able to spend several visits there stocking up (and Suspect Video, too). Most of the library at this location is of a more recent vintage, though they do have some obscurities tucked here and there. DVDs outnumbered Blu by a fair margin; not sure if that's because the Blus had already been picked over or because this shop generally had more DVDs all along. Pricing to start was too steep -- $8.00 for family films, comedies and docs, $10 for horror + sci-fi, and $13.50 (!) for recent releases, classics, foreign, etc. -- but the registers were constantly ringing. No purchases for me, though; I might go back in a few weeks to rummage what's left once the prices get a lot more realistic, but I really didn't see much that I wanted anyway. Still, might be worth a peek if you happen to be in the neighborhood, just for old times' sake, or because there's lots of good eatin' nearby :
