I actually thought Anything for Her - The original version of The Next Three Days, starring Diane Kruger - was better than the remake.

I think Their Finest is excellent.

I haven't seen Pour Elle aka Anything for Her and only heard about it when I was looking at reviews of The Next Three Days. I was trying to work out whether to buy it or not and saw that the original film was generally considered superior to the remake, but that it was worth buying for £1.25.

I'll keep my eyes open for Fred Cavayť's film and see if there's an affordable release.

I just have both on dvd. Although decent i wouldn't consider either to be something i'd upgrade unless it was a charity shop purchase at a similar price to what you paid.

I'd have picked it up at Poundland when they had loads of Blu's.

Would i have bought them had i seen them in the local charity shop?

Probably not.

Although i'd have been tempted if they were a quid each and just taken them to Cex.

Edit - As long as he didn't pay much for them he should make a tidy return trading them in. The first four series are worthless but the others he could make a tidy sum. Again depends what Treb paid.

Were actually a quid each and just check cex so think I'll take them in tomorrow.

Really surprised how much they are going for in cex

Watched a couple of episodes then I then I remembered why I didn't like it when they first came out.


Back too watching the protectors and the tomorrow People

not seen The Tomorrow People but The Protectors is good. Action packed and episodes cram a lot into 25 minutes.

This weeks new arrivals.

Picked up the Hellraiser dvd at Asda as it was reduced. Halloween 4 from Momox in Germany via Amazon marketplace - only took a week from dispatch to be delivered, and the Frankie Howerd collection from the recent Network tv sale.
