Beat the studios' trap with Netflix!

You know how they like to release more than one version of a film on DVD, like a special extended edition, commemorative anniversary re-releases, director's cut versions, etc? It's to trap you into buying the same movie again and again. You can save money by using Netflix for the basic movie content. If you want the special features, or packaging, or director's cut, whatever, then you buy it.

Netflix does carry a few director's cut versions, special editions, and extended editions.


  1. Good Call Becky!!! I have to say this is one of the most annoying things-I have vowed to stop purchasing DVDs until I know for sure it is the last one. (with the exception of the wizard of oz-I still only had the VHS of that) How many special editions do you need?

  2. Wait 'til high def video comes out, then it will start all over again.
