What's on that King King disc Dem? I thought the only UK blu currently was the Premium Collection release.

It's all the same substantial extras as the PC disc.

With the PC ended some of the films are getting releases via their parent company's. This is one.

To Catch a Thief, The Phantom, Target, Days of Thunder and Munich are a few others out this Monday.

I could have waited for another PC two for 15 offer but i really like this artwork.

Yeah there's loads of the Premium titles appearing on amazon as regular editions now. Next time HMV do 2 for 15 I'm hoping to stock up before they all disappear. There's quite a few I still want.

I wrote down which titles i would like a couple of months back. There were 27 in total. 26 now i bought King Kong.

Obviously some i want more than others and besides there's no way i can stump up 195 for the discs this year in one go, so i hope the next 2 for 15 offer, should there be one, isn't the last.

If you're interested these are the titles in question

Mr Smith Goes to Washington
The Phantom
Mighty Joe Young
Target
Blow
Mystery of the Wax Museum
To Catch a Thief
Excalibur
Treasure of the Sierra Madre
Judgement Night
Forbidden Planet
The Hunger
The Adventures of Robin Hood
Them!
White Heat
Out of the Past
Beast from 20,000 Fathoms
The Public Enemy
Murder My Sweet
Suspicion
Mr Deeds Goes to Town
Gun Crazy
You Can't Take it With You
Little Caesar
They Were Expendable
On Dangerous Ground


It's hard to believe i have 44 PC titles already.

Nice one.

If it's any help several of those have been re-released so you don't have to rush unless you really want them as Premium Collection titles.

Top Gun

King Kong

The Two Jakes

Chinatown

Days of Thunder

Target


I thought The Sea Wolf was very good when i watched in December.

A significant number of them, The Sea Wolf included would be blind buys.
It's a shame the Premium Collection has come to an end because I really like the layout. Artcards, posters, original artwork. Very nice releases even if most of them never saw anything special in the way of transfers or extras. It's seen the release of a lot of classic cinema in nice but affordable editions.

I'm always finding Premium Collection titles on CEX but the vast majority are missing slipcases. Typical of CEX I know.
I've bought two in there without slips because they were titles I wasn't particularly desperate for and were only 5 or 6 quid.

The Sea Wolf was a blind buy for me too. Thought it was great. I reviewed it back in December. With things such as Premium Collection titles i think you can blind buy if the plot of something about the film appeals to you. The movies in question do all tend to be what you would call 3 star films at minimum, most four or five star.

The only ones i was a bit disappointed with aren't on your list. Two Paul Newman films - Harper and it's sequel The Drowning Pool.

The only ones on your list i haven't seen or don't own either as a Premium Collection title or on dvd are The Golden Child, The Two Jakes, Death Trap and The Hunchback of Notre Dame.

Of the ones i own / have seen only Dolores Clairborne i thought was poor.

So if it helps i think you can buy any of the others with confidence that you are purchasing a good or maybe outstanding film. It's not like blind buying Arrow slashers we haven't heard of.
