$3.99 at Blockbuster Video

Surprised to see a decent selection of $3.99 PVD at BBV.
saw

History of Violence (Great film - great price)
Saw II
3 Extremes (picked up - heard too much about it not to get it at that price)
Exorcist Prequel (I couldn't resist comparing it to Harlin's version - which I really liked!)
and others...

I saw some $3.99 DVDs at the store in town but nothing that good! I'll have to keep an eye out.

I've checked the ballbusters around here, and they are all way over priced, at least when compared to other bbv's in my hometown.

I work at one. There's a ton of stuff, but most of it's kind of lame. I'll try to remember a few of the decent titles and report back.

Three ... Extremes is worth $4 purely for Park's installment, "Cut". Chan's "Dumplings" is straight odd in a compelling way (undoubtedly the weakest), and Miike's "Box" is assuredly worth a viewing or two. Can't beat it for that price.

Mostly lame stuff. At least, the couple that are worth buying I already own, like A History of Violence. Some stuff others might like though, like the Forgotten and Paparazzi. Mostly direct to video stuff. Saw a couple Wesley Snipes ones.

This was just updated this week, with some actual decent stuff like Thank you for Smoking, the Proposition, and Kinsey.

Not to sidetrack this thread, but a question about this movie.
I think they thought "Dumplings" was the strongest since they ended up making a 90 minute full-length feature out of it.
Anyway, since you put "Cut" as the highest, could you explain the ending to me? I've watched it a couple times and I still don't get it.

Spoiler:
That was his wife that he killed at the end, right? Who was he talking to then?
