Attention all movie buffs! If you’ve been cutting back on your DVD obsession, because of the current economic crisis, now is the time to let lose. I’ve personally held back on purchasing new DVD releases for the sole purpose of buying them the day after Thanksgiving a.k.a. Black Friday.  Yes, I am one of those people who stand in line, and face the crowds just to buy a 20 dollar shirt for 8 bucks. In these trying times these are the type of deals that can help you maintain the lining in your pockets, and gain some cool items in the process. Therefore, I’ve been holding an investigation to find the best DVD deals for fellow movie lovers like myself.

See Black Friday deals after the jump.
