Default What a joke

both the kingdom and Eastern Promises are listed as 44.99 selling price in canada, what the shit is this. There's no chance im gonna spend 50 bucks on a movie. Im pretty upset that we northerners are getting shafted pretty hard on new releases.Hell bourne ultimatum is 39.99. Ugh and i was looking forward to these movies

Yep, we get raped when it comes to pricing. Just about everything these days...

even worse, our taxes... hope you live in Alberta where there is no PST. Would also suck to live in maritimes as they have some odd tax that isnt PST or GST.

Amazon.com is ONLY place I get my hd dvds from.

Well last I checked the Canadian dollar is higher then the American dollar. So come down here to the states for some great deals. When you stop by, anyway we can get you to pay into social security . There anyway you could help pay off our national debt as well?
Thank you.

Oh yeah I forgot. Please, please, oh please buy some houses.

It's not that much for all movies up here, just the stupid combo discs. And It's stupid that we don t get any of the good deals the yanks get like the BOGO at Bestbuy, thank god for Amazon.

You don't know how lucky you're all.

I've to spend nearly 60$ if I want an HD-DVD or Blu-Ray movie. Living in Germany is pure bullshit

Same here. We Europeans are getting royally shafted as well. There's only one way to go: US imports. That's why HD DVD not being region coded is so important to me.

Let's hear it for the United States Postal Service!
