Canadians! Sci-fi fans! Blu-ray collectors! I have three great sci-fi movies that are discounted currently on amazon.ca. Remember, these are “you snooze you lose” limited-supply deals. Do you like your sci-fi? Then, if you get all three, your shipping will be free, as your order will be over CAD$25.

  • Super 8 (2011) on sale for CAD$9.99 – From J.J. Abrams and Steven Spielberg, this one has been said to be a tribute to classic Spielberg movies. A mixture of E.T., Jurassic Park and Cloverfield, this tale of youth, mystery and adventure has a nostalgic feeling like Goonies and Stand By Me. It’s nothing innovative but a fun ride. Rated PG-13 (IMDb rating 7.2/10, watch trailer).
  • Moon(2009) on sale for CAD$9.99 – This critically acclaimed film is about a lonely inhabitant of an automated lunar mining base who longs to see his wife and child so much that it starts to get him mentally unstable. This is a must-see if you are a sci-fi fan. Rated R (IMDb rating 8.0/10, watch trailer).
  • Equilibrium(2002) on sale for CAD$6.99 –  Watch a young Christian Bale and Sean Bean in this sci-fi film in which the action sequences are very well-choreographed. The post-apocalyptic movie has been compared to the Matrix and George Orwell’s 1984. Rated R (IMDb rating 7.6/10, watch trailer).

Here are some outstanding Amazon blu-ray deals!! (*you snooze you lose!)

Get the pre-order of “Christopher Nolan: Director’s Collection” for CAD$35.99 at Amazon.ca, and for my U.S. friends: US$33.86 at Amazon.com. You will get free shipping with this deal; so you’re paying $7 per blu-ray for these highly-rated movies!!

The Nolan collection includes:

  • Insomnia – Al Pacino and Robin Williams star in this murder mystery psychological thriller set in ominous-looking Alaska (7.2 rating).
  • Memento – This amazing film noir, you will be thinking and talking about it for days. Advice: watch with no distractions! (8.6 rating)
  • Batman Begins – Liam Neeson is amazing in this movie that has a  richly dark, atmospheric world; I forgot this was a comic book movie! (8.3 rating).
  • The Dark Knight – Heath Ledger as Joker steals almost every scene in this epic masterpiece (8.9 rating).
  • Inception – DiCaprio stars in this mind-blowing film that you must pay attention from beginning to end (8.8 rating).

Pirates of the Caribbean have also been marked down (free shipping once you hit $25). The ratings decrease the newer the release, but they’re still fun family flicks (“At World’s End” had a $300 million budget!!)

Spartacus – Season 1 and 2 are now on sale. Although there is strong sexual content and language, this is like watching Gladiator in an R-rated TV series. Many have said if they were to make a soap opera to cater towards men, this would be it. There is revenge, betrayal, loyalty, greed, anger, sorrow, love, romance, hatred, brutality and violence. Just like Russell Crowe’s movie, after a slow start (4 or 5 episodes), you find yourself rooting for the characters.

Final Fantasy XIII - click for hi-res!

So this is a pretty good deal from Amazon.ca if you don’t have either game, and thought about getting it. The deal is only good till March 29, 2012 (or until supply is depleted), so you snooze you lose!

You will need to go to each of the game’s listing: click here for Final Fantasy XIII-2**[deal is now dead], and here for FFXIII**. Then, add each game to your Shopping Cart as usual, and right before Checkout, PRESTO! you will see FFXIII-1 discounted off.

With free shipping as it’s over $25 purchase, you’re paying CDN$39.99 + tax for both games. SWEET!

  • The Prestige – CDN$10.00 – Christian Bale & Hugh Jackman star in a movie directed by Christopher Nolan nominated for two Oscars about two magicians, revenge, and sabotage. [PG-13]
  • Goodfellas – CDN$10.00 – Nominated for six Oscars, this is a classic mafia movie directed by Martin Scorcese and a must-watch for Joe Pesci’s Oscar-winning role; “How am I funny? I mean, funny like I’m a clown? I make you laugh? I’m here to amuse you?” [R]
  • Drive (BD+DVD) – CDN$15.00 – A film about a mechanic that doubles as a stuntman and getaway driver; some say Ryan Gosling was snubbed an Oscar nom for his role. [R]
  • Easy A – CDN$9.99 – Yes! Emma Stone’s in it! Get it! It’s a high school comedy likened to John Hughes teen movies of the 80s. [PG-13]
  • Pan’s Labyrinth – CDN$9.99 – FYI this is not a kids movie (for some reason I thought it was), it’s a fantasy film for adults. This movie won three Oscars for its beautiful art direction and cinematography.  [R]
  • Michael Jackson: This Is It – CDN$9.99 – A documentary about the concert that was planned right before Jackson tragically passed away. [PG]
  • National Treasure 1 (BD+DVD) – CDN$10.00 – Nicholas Cage stars in this family fun movie for kids, so don’t expect much. It’s not as bad as the critics say. [PG]
  • National Treasure 2: Book of Secrets (BD+DVD) – CDN$10.00 – Meh, not as good as the first one. [PG]
  • 13 Assassins – CDN$9.99 – Takeshi Miike films are renowned for their violence and gore, but they all have been generally critically acclaimed. Be warned, the violence is extreme, but this may be his best movie yet. Read a few movie reviews by IMDB users here. [R]

Planet Earth: The Complete Series (Blu-ray) is now on sale in Canada’s Amazon for CDN$ 30.99 and it ships for FREE with Super Saver Shipping! This is an amazing deal as the retail price of this award-winning documentary was originally $100.00.

I have this set and I can tell you that the video quality is so amazing that you will want to watch this many times over. This is the first nature documentary that I have in my collection, and the only documentary that I have watched more than once. Many many shots that these BBC cinematographers took are just unbelievably gorgeous, you have to see it yourself in hi-def. This is the reason why you should upgrade to an HDTV and blu-ray player. It is an essential must-buy if you already have an HDTV.

Go buy it now, you won’t be disappointed.
