    Check your Movies menu! There is a new 99 cents Movie Rentals item, the Canadian iTunes Store has 39 movies to rent for only 99 cents! :eek:

    US store/AppleTV usually features 3 per week. Can't wait to see if our (US) store has similar.

    There is quite a few blockbusters in those 39 movies, such as:
    • Ghostbusters
    • Terminator 2
    • Rambo
    • Men in Black
    • Hellboy
    • Total Recall
    • Lost in Space

    Granted they're not recent movies, but age has nothing to do with being a good or a bad movie.

    Besides, the fact that there is a page with 39 movies to rent for 99 cents each on top of the 3 regular movies of the week is a good thing.

    What if it's a permanent thing and there is always 30 to 40 new movies each week? In my opinion if you can't pick a single movie from a list of 30+ movie, you're too picky.

    And... they're gone. I guess it was a marketing test.

    Keep watching, they regularly feature sales on rentals and purchases. I picked up Searching For Bobby Fischer some time back for $4.99, a great movie and one that's apparently no longer available on DVD. A pity.
