Some BD's significantly lower priced at Hamiltonbooks - shipping is a flat $4 unlike SA's gouging on S/H

Code Red DVD's at Hamiltonbooks (appears to be lower priced at SA on many titles):

I thought about the Hamilton Books thing too late! I cleaned out their CR titles a while back. Kinda hoping they get more, especially in the $10 range, but it's been awhile. Seems like they're the only place that gets old/remaindered Code Red stock?

Same strategy here as well. Those CR titles at HB have been available for a while and I don't see any of them having gone OOS. But on a related note, why is it that very few to none CR titles have any reviews on bluray.com ? I would like to get a fair idea of PQ and AQ attributes prior to purchase but am having to filter them from the mindboggling array of dumb Amazon reviews

Nathaniel Thompson has reviews of a lot of Code Red stuff at Mondo Digital, and in most cases charts their history on home video from the days of VHS onward. He's not as hair-splitty as the BRcom folks, but it's usually enough for me to decide if a purchase is wise at sale prices. I usually look the movie up first on IMDb, then click through to his site via the "critics reviews" page.

Amazon is basically pointless anymore. Too many people submitting seller feedback as "reviews" and, as always, Amazon does nothing because it helps crank up the star ratings on just about everything.

Amazon has washed out much of the "signal" in their review section. What was once an invaluable guide has now been lost, likely permanently.
