After years of waiting, Gladiator (one of the best films of all time) is coming to Blu-Ray!

£14.99 inc delivery + 5% Cash back via Quidco = £14.24

Can be had a penny cheaper at Amazon (but no Quidco), and same price on Play but that is with there snail mail delivery and will probably arrive a week after release, I think HMV is your best bet if you want it on release.

Gladiator picked up five Academy Awards® and tells the story of Maximus Decimus (played by Russell Crowe), a Roman general who is betrayed by the corrupt prince Commodus. Captured and enslaved along the outer fringes of the Roman Empire, Maximus rises through the ranks of the gladiatorial arena to avenge the murders of his family and his emperor.

same price on amazon and play
As I said a penny cheaper on Amazon, same price on Play, but there delivery speed is awful. If your wanting this on release, HMV is the way to go.
Quidco makes it more favourable than Amazon?

Dont agree that HMV is the way to go, had my fair share of problems with their service to be honest including late delivery of items and sending me a standard DVD title when a Blu ray format had been ordered. A right carry on getting it replaced!
My experience with HMV has been pretty good, never had any problems. Not saying they've not made the odd mistake with other people though.
#6 are really good for delivery, i normally get the DVD/BLU Ray the friday or saturday before the release on monday, plus you get 5% off using codes.
Id agree, HMV is the way to go in my opinion- NEVER had a problem with them once, new release always on time (if not before), but have had problems in the past with the other two.
heat from me
Read the reviews. The picture is crap.
