Thank God I ordered ten copies.....

Stephen@Cult Labs 10th October 2011 10:18 PM

I wonder how many people managed o order a copy at 3.99? I'd imagine it was quite a few to get it at number 1 in thier bestseller chart.

nekromantik 11th October 2011 01:27 AM

Amazon still has not cancelled my copy of Fight Club for 2.99 and people are getting it shipped without cancellation.
I know its different being a catalogue title but still a bargin :lol:

Paul@TheOverlook 11th October 2011 06:21 AM

I think Fight Club was a genuine offer.

Someone else mentioned that yesterday morning. I'd imagine setting up an incorrect price on a Friday is their worst nightmare!

Don't Look Now only 6.99 on Amazon.

antmumford 11th October 2011 04:07 PM

Thought I'd let you all know that HMV have now changed their BD sale from 2 for 20 to 2 for 15. There's some real good ones in the deal too from what I could see in my local store

Too right! This deal matches that of play and amazon now which is what we want to see! I'm very keen on getting THE THIN RED LINE & PLATOON for 7.50 each :D

Refused 16th October 2011 05:11 PM

Mega Monday time guys! The ones that jumped out at me were Cape Fear, Candyman and the other Cape Fear for 6.95 each, and Quadrophenia for 7.95.

All The Right Noises BFI Dual Format is only 6.70 on Amazon for pre-order!

When you said "...from what I could see in my local store" I'm assuming that you meant examples of the "2 for 20" or are they 2 for 15 instore too? I'm probably just having a senior moment;)

Thanks for that - pre-ordered. :clap: This is one of the few of the 'original' Flipside releases I didn't pick up. Some of the newer releases are also reduced to 8.99 as well.

I know, I couldn't believe my eyes when the guy started putting them all out on the shelves. There was a great selection too, some real good titles are in it but they tend to vary from store to store

Where do you guys all buy Eureka/Master of Cinema Blus from?

I've been slowly purchasing them while money's tight and I was shocked to see For All Mankind at 90 on Amazon, having disappeared from the rest of the world.

Daemonia 20th October 2011 12:40 AM

Amazon are not honouring their pricing for Fight Club. This is the email I had from them:

I'm not at all hopeful now that Silent Running will be honoured either.

Did anyone actually get Fight Club at that low price? If so, why are they picking and choosing who gets it and who doesn't?

I got mine for 2.97 :)

Did you order more then one copy?
People who ordered multiple copies got cancellation emails but now I tnink they put a limit to the number of customers who get it at that price.

Daemonia 20th October 2011 01:29 AM

I ordered just the one copy. They sent me an email at the start of the week, apologising for the delay and that they were awaiting stock. They promised to send the BD out by the 23rd October. So, all's good, I thought. Then this evening I had that email, telling me the order was cancelled.

Well, no use moaning about it, I suppose. Just wanted to give people the heads up that Amazon might not honour their orders and that the Silent Running orders might not be honoured either.

I'm still baffled as to why some people got theirs at the cheap price and others haven't. Fairness would have been to either honour all orders or cancel all orders. Seems like not all customers are treated the same at Amazon. And I've emailed them to tell them as such. It's not the fact that they've cancelled my order that's pissed me off, I always figured that was a possibility, it's the fact that they're not treating all customers equally. It's grossly inconsistent.

Baseball Fury 20th October 2011 06:15 AM

I got mine. my guess is that once the initial stock was depleted, any orders over that were not honoured.

as for Masters of Cinema, they're currently in the process of rereleasing the whole collection as dual format, so the original BD only releases are OOP. this has led to silly overrated prices, but to be honest, you'd be a very silly billy to pay more than 20 for one. the only unconfirmed reissue is Soul Power.

That's good to hear. I never understood the appeal of Dual/Tripe/Super releases, they just seem redundant to me. However, anything that means I'm paying less than 6x a reasonable price is a pro for me.

wayfarer 20th October 2011 11:19 AM

Went to the HMV Trocadero today and bought (don't laugh) Sucker Punch and Moonraker; a band name if ever I heard one;)

I get it for MoC/BFI etc as it saves them doing a separate DVD release for their substantial DVD only audience, and I get it for kids films, because kids can ruin the DVD copy I don't get it for titles like Inception etc, because they do a DVD release anyway!

some people over on BR forums contacted Amazon using the online chat feature and complained and they got voucher to make up the difference so ended up with the blu for 2.97 anyway. :)

Try that cant hurt.

I understand the theory. Throw in the DVD so anyone who's on the fence or intending to go Blu later can buy it now. All part of the ongoing drive to get people to move forward. Not sure how well it's working though.

I mean more along the lines of consumer appeal. As a publisher I see how it makes sense, but as for your Inception example, or Thor which seems to have a "Super Play" edition which is DVD + BD + Digital + 3DBD. It makes no sense to me for a person to buy this. A BD + 3DBD maybe, as no doubt if 3D does manage to take off it'd be nice to have them ready, but with a DVD and Digital thrown in as well? I just can't see why someone would want 4 copies of the same film.

A DVD copy thrown in means you can take it to a friend's house who may not have a BD player :)

Candyman is 5.99 in Zavvi's mega-monday deal !! I'm sold!

dream demon 24th October 2011 08:56 PM

Play have some Halloween deals on at the moment. Just picked up Rec 1 & 2 for 5.69 each.

The Reaper Man@Cult Labs 25th October 2011 07:04 PM

HMV have 2 for 15 which included....

MIDNIGHT EXPRESS
THE FACULTY
STAND BY ME
THE OTHERS
CAPE FEAR
CANDYMAN
CAPE FEAR (Peck)

Paul@TheOverlook 25th October 2011 07:48 PM

I picked up the Scorsese Cape Fear and much maligned Sucker Punch in that deal.

The Reaper Man@Cult Labs 25th October 2011 08:11 PM

Which Cape Fear do you prefer?

Paul@TheOverlook 25th October 2011 08:31 PM

The remake, hands down. The original is a little twee for my taste, Reaps.

The Reaper Man@Cult Labs 25th October 2011 10:46 PM

Yeah,De Niro is hard to beat as a psycho.
The original,I suppose was quite menacing in it's day.

the blob 25th October 2011 10:57 PM

I prefer the original I think. It's close but Juliette Lewis gets on my nerves a bit.

Nosferatu@Cult Labs 26th October 2011 08:43 AM

Although Scorsese's version is very good, I prefer the original as Gregory Peck is a better protagonist than Nick Nolte and Robert Mitchum is really hard to beat as a 'bad guy' than Robert De Niro. I really like them both and would like to see the original on Blu-ray as well as the remake, which I would consider picking up for that price.
