I went to HMV with the intention of buying something, and when I got there just felt like I was buying something for the sake of it and left empty handed and a little disappointed lol. Nothing 'spoke' to me and they didn't even have the new Cannibal Corpse CD (or the latest 88 Films Jackie Chan release).

Some poor guy was getting himself terribly stressed out though because he was looking for Season 3 of Star Trek DS9 and the cashier told him it's out of print and you can only get it in the complete series.

I'd have bought the new Royal Blood album. I shall probably get it tomorrow when i hit the supermarkets. I like every song i've heard from it so far.

Nipped into town and went into a charity shop and bought all these for 1, 5 films for a pound, I had a 2 coin and let them keep the other pound change.

Allo allo series 1 & 2
Four lions.
Hereditary
Grim full series 1
Gone girl .


Never actually watched any of them, I saw bits of Allo Allo when was on tv but never properly watched it.

I only got it because it was 5 films for a 1 and nothing else interested me, or I already have them, so only got it to round it upto 5.

I really like Four Lions, Hereditary, and Gone Girl. The first is a brilliant black comedy. A film about Islamic extremist and aspiring suicide bombers shouldn't be funny, so it's a mark of the quality screenplay by Chris Morris, Sam Bain, and Jesse Armstrong, Morris's direction, and all the performances, particularly Riz Ahmed and Kayvan Novak that it highlights the insanity of extremism and any religious fanatics who cherry pick from their holy book.

Hereditary is, for me an intelligent and occasionally unsettling look at a family devastated by grief. It features probably Toni Colette's finest performance in any film it's one of the best central performances in a horror film in the last 50 years. Ari Astor's patient direction evokes Kubrick, Polanski, and Friedkin, with the film being unafraid to let you know its influences but never feeling derivative.

I read Gone Girl before watching the film but understood that Gillian Flynn had made some changes so the screenplay wasn't entirely faithful to her novel. It's brilliantly structured, David Fincher is a smart and accomplished director who makes the most of Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike's acting talents, and I was impressed by the score by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. If you haven't read the book, it's a film which you may want to watch and then rewatch soon afterwards because it is equally good on the second (or third or fourth) viewing as the first.

Strange isn't it that supermarkets stock the dvd of a film but not the Blu-ray even though they sell both formats instore.

Wrong Turn, i'm looking at you here, same goes for Blithe Spirit.

Yet Asda sell both the dvd and blu-ray of newly re-released Van Damme movie Wake of Death from 2004.
