London’s best DVD shops

Spinal trap: there are always bargains to be found in smaller DVD outlets

Best for exports

The Cinema Store is still a hub for those wanting to get their mitts on Criterion edition DVDs, new-release foreign imports and hard-to-find box sets. A dream for film lovers with a bit of pocket money to spend. Cinema Store, Unit 4b, Orion House, Upper Saint Martin s Lane, WC2 (020 7379 7838) Leicester Square tube.

Best for artists film

Hang a sharp right at the main entrance of the ICA and you ll hit their shop, which sells all manner of books, mags and a decent selection of artists film on DVD and VHS. The Tate and Serpentine also have selections in their shops, and you can also pick up some of the more esoteric stuff at Dalston s Lux gallery.ICA, The Mall, SW1 (020 7930 0493) Charing Cross tube/rail.
LUX, third floor, 18 Shacklewell Lane, E8 (020 7503 3980) Old St tube/rail.

Best for world cinema

Situated in the main atrium of BFI Southbank is their Filmstore. Among the shelves of books is a very decent selection of DVDs. The shop is especially good for modern British cinema. Foyles on Charing Cross Road also complement their fine film books section with DVDs. BFI Southbank, Belverdere Rd, SE1 (020 7928 3232) Waterloo tube/rail.
Foyles, 113-119 Charing Cross Rd, WC2 (020 7437 5660) Leicester Square tube.

Best for secondhand

For those who don t mind a tattered casing or the odd scuff on the disc, Computer Exchange and Stage Screen in Notting Hill Gate (and Berwick Street) have a wide selection of secondhand DVDs. Beanos in Croydon (recently saved from closure thanks to public support) is also a great place to pick up a bargain CD or DVD in the burbs. CEX, 32 Rathbone Place, W1 (020 7636 2666) Tottenham Court Rd tube.
Stage Screen, 40 Notting Hill Gate, W11 (020 7460 6716) Notting Hill Gate tube.
Beanos, Middle St, Croydon (020 8680 1202) East Croydon rail.

Best for cheap (new) DVDs

We wept salty tears when the big Fopp on Tottenham Court Road closed its doors, but the original London store (based in Covent Garden) is still open for business. Most DVDs are either 5 or 10, making it hazardously easy for an impulse buy to develop into a binge.Fopp, 1 Earlham St, WC2 (020 7379 0883) Leicester Square tube.

Best for oldies

Lovejoys has a very decent range of rare golden oldies, musicals, films noirs and a wide variety of studio films among the racks of secondhand books. Oh, and there s a sex-film emporium in the back. Lovejoys, 99a Charing Cross Rd, WC2 (020 7437 1988) Leicester Square tube.

Best for selection

They may be overcrowded and unwieldy, but you can t knock the megastores (HMV and the quaintly named Zavvi ) for choice. Usually, if something has been released on DVD, they ll have a copy tucked away on one of their vast aisles. Also great for discount box sets. HMV, 150 Oxford St, W1 (020 7631 3423) Oxford Circus tube.
Zavvi, 14-16. Oxford St, W1 (020 7631 1234) Tottenham Court Rd tube.

Best charity shop

Most charity shops in London will have the odd DVD knocking about, but Help the Aged in Walthamstow has a good range, as does the Cancer Research UK shop in Islington and Oxfam on Drury Lane.Help the Aged, 36-44 High St, E17 (020 8520 9462) Walthomstow Central tube.
Oxfam, 23 Drury Lane, WC2 (020 7240 3769) Covent Garden tube.
Cancer Research UK, 34 Upper St, N1 (020 7226 8951) Angel tube.

Best for music DVDs

If there s a concert film or music promo compilation you can t find in one of the bigger stores, you may want to head to the big Rough Trade East record shop in Brick Lane. Sister Ray one of the last decent record shops on Berwick Street, has some good (cheap) discs alongside films and TV shows.RTE, Dray Walk, Old Truman Brewery, 91 Brick Lane, E1 (020 7392 7788) Liverpool St tube/rail.
Sister Ray, 34-35 Berwick St, W1 (020 7734 3297) Tottenham Court Rd tube.

Best for classical music DVDs

MDC Music Video on the South Bank is a dangerous place to go after few drinks in the BFI bar, as they have a variety of world cinema as well as lots of classical and jazz films. London stalwart Gramex also has a range of classical DVDs to accompany a world-beating range of CDs and vinyl. MDC, Royal Festival Hall, 25 Lower Marsh, SE1 (020 7620 0198) Waterloo tube/rail.
Gramex, 25 Lower Marsh, SE1 (020 7401 3830) Waterloo tube/rail.

Best for rentals

London has some great independent DVD rental shops. The best is The Film Shop (two locations), which has friendly staff and an extensive selection of mainstream and arthouse fare. Today is Boring on Kingsland Road is very decent, as is Close-Up on Brick Lane. Also, to complement its fine array of discs, Archway Video has a neat system of staff picks if a disc has a flower sticker on the front, it s been given the thumbs up. The Film Shop, 177 Stoke Newington Church St, N16 (020 72491762) Highbury Islington tube.
The Film Shop, 239 Liverpool Rd, N1 (020 7700 7170) Angel tube.
Close-Up, 139 Brick Lane, E1 (020 7739 3634) Old Street tube/rail.
Today is Boring, 15 Kingsland Rd, E2 (020 7684 1461) Old Street tube/rail.

Cheap DVD Stores
Top 20 Site Review

The Cheap DVD Stores Top 20 review brings you the pick of the best and most popular discount DVD stores online today.

There is a big trend towards buying DVDs online because you can find them at substantially better prices than retail. There are a number of cheap online DVD retailers available, and to make finding the right one for you easy, this review brings you the leading sites on a single page, so you have one-stop access to the best in the market today:

Rakuten.com’s DVD Store is the DVD department of the online store rated Best Overall Place To Buy by Computer Shoppers. With approximately 5 million customers over 1,000,000 products, the Buy.com equation has proved to be immensely successful.
A broad range, a very secure service, and a high degree of commitment to customer service goes a long way in understanding their popularity, but perhaps the real clincher for many is their pricing policy. They offer a �Low Price Guarantee� so their prices are consistently market leading.
So for these reasons we rate Buy.com’s DVD store as our leading choice, and the benchmark in cheap DVD stores.

Half.com are one of the Internet’s real success stories, and their equation of offering highly discounted prices from various retailers along with used product listings seems particularly successful in DVDs and can be found at Find great deals on DVDs at Half.com
Prices can be very low indeed, whether it is a retailer who wants to offer the most competitive price to move an overstock, or the bargains in their used listings.

Amazon DVD is the DVD division of World-leading e-commerce giant Amazon.
Amazon was initially founded in 1995 as a place to buy books because of the unique customer experience the Web could offer book lovers. They then moved into other fields with particular success in products suitable for mailing like movies. Now they are one of the worldwide leaders in DVD sales, with an enormous range at greatly reduced prices.

The DVD discounts you will find from these online stores are typically quite substantial, and represent a large portion off the regular price. All of these organizations listed here offer discounts online, and because of promotional discounting and spot specials it can sometimes be worthwhile checking the price with a few stores listed here to get the best deal. As always, stores need to move stock according to their own supply and demand equation, so if that DVD you want happens to be part of someone’s overstock problem, you might even get it at a really good price.

I hope the Cheap DVD Top 20 takes you to what you are looking for in the world of discount DVDs online. And, if you did find this top 20 review useful, maybe you would like to bookmark the page, it may be the only online DVD stores reference you’ll ever need.

DVD Review: MADtv (The Complete Third Season)

The big moment that determines if a sketch comedy series is going to last is when their hot stars depart. When Chevy Chase split early on Saturday Night Live. not many people were heartbroken since Bill Murray easily filled his locker. Monty Python s Flying Circus only lasted one short season when John Cleese stepped away. MADtv faced a major cast turnover at the end of season two when Orlando Jones split and Artie Lange was fired. Who would fill their wigs? Somebody in the casting department earned their money by landing Will Sasso, Alex Borstein and Aries Spears. The new trio would quickly dominate the show with their various characters. The show itself changed in appearance. The guest stars were mostly reduced to being a celebrity in Cabana Chat with Dixie Wetsworth (Mary Scheer). The show wasn t trying to be Saturday Night Live Jr.. MADtv: The Complete Third Season captures a show that went up a level with the arrival fresh talent.

The season starts off with a good controversial sketch that gives Martin Luther King (Aries Spears) a shot on the Def Comedy Jam. The show predicts the lingerie bowl with their concept of the NB-TNA. This female basketball league wouldn t be confused with the WNBA. When Salt N Pepa arrives on Cabana Chat, the audience gets to meet new sidekick James Brown (Spears). Corky and the Juice Pigs appear several times with their comical songs. After being around for a decade, the Canadian group bust up after their time on MADtv. I m blaming the ghost of Artie Lange s demons on their demise. Willed Sasso wasn t haunted by being the new hefty comic on the show. He quickly made people forget about the troubled star who would go on to even more substance abuse issues. Sasso would later spoof Chris Farley on a COPS parody, another comic known for substance abuse. Sasso would deliver a spot on Kenny Rogers impersonation.

Alex Borstein quickly gained a following with her infuriating character of Ms. Swan. She knew how to drive people nuts rather fast. Borstein would go on to be heard as the voice of Lois on Family Guy. There were plenty of big stars in the first half of the season including Bret Hart, Howie Long, LaToya Jackson and Happy Day s Don Most. Pam Grier does more than a guest shot in the Cabana. She was out promoting Jackie Brown. She comes out for the opening and takes the lead in a sketch about black superheroes who don t get respect from the white Justice League. She also does the Cabana Chat.

Star Wars gets a little love in the second half of the season. Billie Dee Williams (Spears) promotes his new massage parlor that has a Lando Calrissian theme. How much for a full force release? Mark Hamill pops up on two episodes including one where he has to host a game show with Ms. Swan as the contestant. The legendary Phyllis Diller also double appears this season. She s best on The Kirk and Spock Variety Show. A shocker is Anna Nicole Smith arriving on Cabana Chat. She s at her sexy prime and doing her best to sound smart. This was not the woman who ended up on E! s Anna Nicole Smith Show. This would be the last season for the animated Spy Vs. Spy cartoons. The show would downplay any connection to Mad Magazine in the following season. But it didn t need to use the magazine for a persona since they had enough talent to exist as its own entity. Although in a strange twist, they would repeat segments from the first two seasons as Classic MADtv in a few episodes. This allowed the show to mix the old faces with their replacements. The new additions are a major reason why MADtv would last another 11 seasons on Saturday nights.

The video is 1.33:1 full frame. The show was shot on standard definition video so there s a bit of fuzz to the image. The audio is Dolby Digital stereo. The mix is focused on the dialogue track. The laughter doesn t cover up the jokes.

No bonus features.

MADtv: The Complete Third Season proved that the sketch comedy show could not merely survive a major cast change, but thrive. The arrival of Will Sasso, Alex Borstein and Aries Spears kept the show from being steamrollered by Saturday Night Live.

Shout! Factory presents MADtv: The Complete Third Season. Starring: Will Sasso, Nicole Sullivan, Debra Wilson, Alex Borstein and Aries Spears. Boxset Contents: 25 episodes on 4 DVDs. Released: June 25, 2013. Available at Amazon.com .
