We have started a Patreon page with the hopes that some of our followers would be willing to donate a small amount to keep DVDBeaver alive. We are a tiny niche, so your generosity is vital to our existence.

We are talking about a minimum of $0.10 - $0.15 a day, perhaps a quarter (or more) to those who won't miss it from their budget. It equates to buying DVDBeaver a coffee once, twice or a few times a month. You can then participate in our monthly Silent auctions, and have exclusive access to many 'bonus' High Resolution screen captures - both 4K UHD and Blu-ray (see HERE).

To those that are unfamiliar, Patreon is a secure/verified third-party service where users can agree to a monthly donation via credit card or PayPal by clicking the button below.

With the reasonable Euro ( € ), many of us can get great value by shopping at Amazon France! Here are some, English-friendly, Blu-rays (and a few DVDs) to consider that are titles not available on Blu-ray elsewhere, are superior transfers / extras / packaging or are comparatively inexpensive (click review buttons to also see comparisons where applicable):
