Spine slash = remainder mark?

I recently bought a bunch of copies of the same DVD from Dollar Tree specifically for the case (Viva, single disk, clear, non-eco, no spine snaps). While unpackaging them, I noticed that each and...

Re: DVD bought from japan

I can't speak to your problem with that file except note that it's nearly 4GB and maybe your file system (or some other aspect of your computer) can't handle the size. If you really think the disks...

Re: Shout Select Sale - ends 03/19/19

I found one disk of interest that is also in my price range. Like a Kino sale that doesn't quite make the grade, I'll wait until next time.

Re: Target deals

I finally picked up Stranger Things S2. Target's site suggested that nearly every local store has copies, but when I visited the closest store, I found zero copies of either season. Their electronics...

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

I don't believe anybody's mentioned finding The Almighty Johnsons season 1, which has popped-up at a few local DT's. I've never heard of the series myself, but bought 2 sets, possibly just for the...

Re: Wal-Mart Bargains Thread #2

To put a finer point on it, the Max Headroom set was missing disk 5 and the 16-page booklet. The Marx Brothers set was missing the 40-page booklet. I decided to suck up the Marx Brothers loss (maybe...

Re: Hanna-Barbera Diamond Collection TV show re-release - many titles

I don't have a full answer, but can say that the original Jonny Quest DVD set from 2006 does contain Spanish audio (and subtitles), selectable from the onscreen menus. So Warner Brothers definitely...

Re: Big Lots Blu-rays

I visited my local BL this morning and they had definitely restocked, with dozens more BD disks. But most were of the very same titles they had before. I bought the lone TKAMB (non-digibook) and...

Re: Big Lots Blu-rays

I saw the 4K release of E.T. at a Big Lots on Wednesday night for $5. Thinking that had to be somebody's mistake. I also noted a Donnie Yen: 3 Movie Collection DVD boxed set, also for $5.

Re: Just got an empty box from eBay!?!

I guess they weren't something collectable, i.e. Star Wars?



Yeah, that's...very...strange. I don't suppose you noticed any, err, white powder?

At the very least, I'd contact EBay. Maybe...

Re: "Region Free" Blu Ray Player... Not Region free anymore???

If any disks still play normally, then the basic player seems intact. Is this a "region-free from the factory" player or a "region-free modified" player? Of the Region A disks that don't play, do you...

Re: It's Another DeepDiscount 15% sale

I've wanted to get the FTC involved for years. Truth in packaging. I shouldn't need x-ray vision to know what's inside the shrinkwrap.

Re: Rumor: Sears prepares to file for bankruptcy

But if Lampert succeeds, I assume Sears and K-Mart are still going under? Or will he be choosy in which real estate he sells/develops? Does anybody know why he wants the real estate?
