http://www.amazon.ca/exec/obidos/tg/...671/dvdtalk-20

Some really good deals here, including Modern Times - Chaplin Collection (Limited Edition Collector's Set) for $18.53CAN.

It's in celebration of Canada Day, but the prices are in effect now!

Sheesh, this right after the DDD sale = lots'o dvd's and plenty of bills to come.

I ordered it as well. I also double checked that the ASIN# matched other locations for the limited edition set.

Here's what I ordered:

*** are sold out. The rest may still be available.

***Modern Times [IMPORT] [DVD] By: Charles Chaplin (Director), et al CDN$ 18.53

Big O: Complete Collection [4 Discs] [DVD] CDN$ 13.89

Santa Claus is Comin' to Town/Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer/Frosty the Snowman/Frosty Returns [3 Discs] [DVD] CDN$ 13.00

***Hollywood Horror Collection [DVD] CDN$ 2.74

Gladiator (2000) [DVD] CDN$ 6.49

***Serious Hits Live [DVD] CDN$ 13.99

I'm not sure which version of Gladiator that is. Hopefully, not fullscreen.

I noticed a lot of the stuff went OOS after I posted here... Hopefully somebody got something out of it! When I first looked, there were only a few things OOS.

GREAT price on the LE of Jin-Roh, which is normally $30 US.

But, that's also sold out.

Can't beat the price on History Of Cinema 12 disc set: $0.25 CDN

It's not in stock, of course.

That's what I was afraid of. Hopefully it's not the case...

Just a followup... My order arrived today. Everything as promised, including the Special Edition of Modern Times! I picked up 2 of those, and may have one up for trade in the future.

Gladiator is the widescreen version with slipcover, as commonly seen in HMV.

Thanks to the OP!
My order came in today ... For some reason I thought the Hand Maid May was the collection including volumes 1-3, but instead I got an empty collector's boxset with figurine! Oh well ... I guess I'll be able to find someone who wants that.
When I ordered, the Modern Times Special Edition was all sold out.

1 Graveyard Shift CDN$4.00
1 My Dear Killer (Widescreen) CDN$8.75
1 Hand Made May:Limited Edition CDN$7.00
1 Dividing Hour [IMPORT] CDN$6.17
1 Death Bed CDN$9.50
1 Stray Dog CDN$8.25
