You can import if you want.

I used to buy from these stores, but the online and retail price difference is one heaven one earth, $60 (movie only) vs $30 (with extra features)

Buy online better, no brainer.

i think stream or download is even faster than the travelling time to get to the store

West area used to have quite of numbers of lasir flair store. Now left at lot1 and west coast plaza. I rent bluray from them.

I am surprised to see poh kim still survive till now. A latest movie dvd cost up to $19.90 and the bluray version cost $39.90. A original bluray movie buyer would order from amazon at half of the price. A physical copy of bluray is still better than download and still worth to buy from amazon once the price drop below US $10.
