Understandable in some ways, really: 1 unit sold at HMV = price of 10 units online )
You've got a point there.
Must have been approximately half a year ago when I last bought a movie in a local shop.

Excellent!

That's great news.

I had an e-mail from Planet Axel to let me know the Marquis de Sade's Justine has been dispatched. I should really do a Jean Rollin mini marathon at some point.

Greetings!
I don't know, to make money? Be silly of them have the UK rights and not do anything with them. Also, it's more convenient than waiting a week or two for them to arrive in the post. They will also be targeting the average customer and growing a bigger fan base. Which means more income and the chance of more title's appearing on BD.

I can't remember when I last bought a DVD 'over-the-counter' it's been that long I don't think I've been in a store since BDs went 'mainstream'!

However, that will change as I have a 20 HMV voucher from PurePoints to spend.

Yeah, we know, the stuff you buy is under-the-counter stuff. Y'know, the ones that get passed to you in plain brown paper bags.

If only that were the case!

I've been thinking about it and I have only bought one BD from a shop and that was only because Morrisons were selling The King's Speech for about 9 and, if I had ordered it online, it wouldn't have arrived in time for my dad's birthday.

Ask Pete, he seems to know all about that kind of stuff (boobies etc). He'll tell you where to get it from.
Pete and Prince_Vajda like this.
