You'd be amazed what can turn up on charity shop shelves, almost all in my local area have dvd/Blu sections, was thinking of a trip to posh areas of London to see what charity shops have been donated to them, one of my best grabs was an as new Maltese Falcon Blu steelbook for 5. And it supports good causes too, so charity shops are a regular trawl for me.

All the charity shops in my area never have anything other than kids dvds and the closest thing to cult movies they get is Texas or Grudge remakes. Three CEX stores local to me never get any Arrow stuff in with either. Uncultured north east!

To us the a lot of the stuff I pick up is gold but to joe public it's crap and they really don't know the value of what they getting rid of they watch it and for most it's not for them. Hey most of my mates think I have awful tastes in movies, but hey what do they know these are people who like soap operas and crap like Mrs browns boys(which really should be a reason to disown them as friends)

I've still yet to find a single dvd worth buying in any of the charity shops around me and I've only ever seen one or two blu rays in them. I've pretty much given up looking. Sometimes i pick a few bits up in CEX but rarely do i find anything obscure in there either.

I've picked a few things up in my local CEX, but all i've picked up in charity shops has been The Fisher King and the Porkies double bill.

Oh yeah and season three of Footballers Wives a couple of years ago.

CEX in Liverpool in pretty good. Over the last year or so i've picked up great Blu's of The Wicker Man, Devil Rides Out, The Reptile, Plague of The Zombies, Mummy's Shroud, and most recently, Dracula Prince of Darkness.
They also had 10 copies of Dressed To Kill last week.
But you can go months when there's nothing at all. It's just luck.
