    I honestly can't remember if I ever got around to catching this. I'm sure it's goofy fun though.

    I thought it was a step up from 2 and this is coming from someone who liked that one. Everything about 3 looks and feels bigger. Different director, wider aspect ratio and unlike 1 & 2 it was shot on location instead of a set. It's an action packed finale to the trilogy.

    Nice, I figured as much, it was an easy "blind buy".......only 8 bucks total with shipping too. I thought part 2 was decent enough but forgettable at the same time. Have very fond memories of driving to Providence to catch the first Hatchet on the big screen with a good buddy of mine. Probably top 10 theater visits for me all time.

    If you haven't seen it yet and ever get a chance, The Pit (1981) is A LOOOOOT better.

    Bloody Birthday blows chunks.

    I'll agree The Pit is better, but personally I like Bloody Birthday quite a bit and think it is a lot of fun and far more enjoyable than some of the other killer kiddie flicks; snoozefests like Devil Times Five, Children of the Corn to name a few!

    Unfortunately Best Buy didn't have a copy ready to be shipped, even though their site said they did. I gotta wait till April 10th.....but they refunded me my shipping cost. Definitely looking forward to checking it out.

    Speaking of killer kid flicks...... one of my favorites is The Children. Very underrated flick from about a decade ago. And I've heard nothing but great things about We Need to Talk About Kevin. That's been on my list for a while now.......might have to splurge and blind buy it on blu.

    And I've never seen the Pit. Consider it added to the list!

    We Need to Talk About Kevin is an amazing film (and even better book), but it's far from what I would consider part of the "killer kids" genre of horror. So don't in expecting that kind of film as it's a psychological drama.

    I think I've dropped close to $400 in the last month since HMV started discounting their stuff. I go in and it's 10% off and i buy some...then it drops to 20% and I buy some more....then it drops again, and i buy more. right now i'm waiting for the Bramalea City Center location to drop to 50% off so I can go another round. just off the top of my head, this is what I can remember picking up:

    The Black Stallion (Criterion)
    Le Silence de la Mer (Criterion)
    A Brighter Summer Day (Criterion)
    Gilda (Criterion)
    Street Trash
    The House that Screamed
    Session 9
    Zombie High
    Hellhole
    Monster Dog
    Dog Day Afternoon
    The Comeback
    Lisa and the Devil
    Black Sunday
    Road Games
    Lord of Illusions
    Beware! The Blob
    Night Train to Terror
    The Agony and the Ecstasy
    Wild River
    The Razor's Edge
    Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

    Damn dude that's some awesome shit you picked up. The HMV downtown Toronto is still getting new shipments in. One of the guys working told me that as the other stores close, they're shipping all remaining stock to the Toronto Superstore. So I grabbed a few t shirts, a Jurassic Park one and a Star Wars one. They had a pretty sweet Top Gun shirt but they didn't have my size. Have to keep checking in...

    The location near me has some box sets that i've been eyeing...the sherlock series 1-3 with the busts of cumberbatch and freeman, the shout factory herzog set, the classic monsters set....all are pretty expensive, but at %50 off might be attractive. I think all stores have to be closed by 1st of April, don't they?

    I thought the closing process was fairly uniform from store to store, but apparently not. The Sherway Gardens location has already closed. And the Fairview location is at 50% already, and looking REALLY picked over. I'd love to drop by the Yonge/Dundas location, if only for nostalgia's sake.

    The Yonge/Dundas one is open till the end of April "or sooner" I was told. It's gonna be the last one to close. All remaining stock from other stores will be shipped there.

    I am so jealous. Wish I could participate in the sale. My local FYE is finally going under. They have 30% right now, but meh..their selection isn't that great. I will probably pick up some stuff, but I'm waiting for a larger percentage off.

    It's kind of bittersweet. HMV had a lot of good prices and now the only places we're left with in Toronto that sell movies are Best Buy (and their selection has been terrible for years) and this independent store called Bay Street Video, which is great. I really hope they don't go under, their prices on Shout discs are often cheaper than Amazon.

    There are still used bookstores and record shops that still sell blu-rays, but it's all second hand. A couple of them are actually fantastic but it's sad to see theses retailers call it quits.

    In the 90's my college bud and I always drove to Toronto and shopped for cds and movies. Loved HMV, Sam the Record Man, Sunrise Records, The World's Biggest Bookstore, and all of the cool used and independent shops in Ontario. Loved those days. Shit, now everything is gone. :(

    What's their discount on dvds/blus right now? Are they keeping pace with the other stores, or going slower? That's good to know, though...i'll try to drop by once my local store is closed.

    It really is such a bummer. HMV is a part of my adolescence. Going to visit family in Toronto always required a pilgrimage to Yonge/Dundas for music and movies. Then, when I moved to walking distance from there, it was a place I went weekly. I'll really miss it. At least Sunrise is taking its place, though...that eases the pain somewhat.
