Special edition 2 movie box set - Night watch & Day Watch - director's cut of both movies!
Bought today at Asda Birchwood (Warrington) - thought £5 for this was an absolute bargain - looking forward to watching these again.

For anyone who hasn't seen these movies I would definitely recommend, especially at this price.

Not sure if nationwide etc...

Cheers mate! Have to agree - great movies, and I only heard about them last year after somebody else posted a deal for them last year on HUKD!

I'm hoping they have the subtitles on so I get a "true" translation instead of the dubbing - last tiem I watched them the dubbing was good but there were a few parts where I didn't fully understand it.

Thanks to whoever put the picture in for me.

i believe it was supposed to a trilogy. but budgets forced them out of it. (from what i remember)

excellent films. i payed full price for them individually on release day and never regretted it.

2 of my most favorite films.

for anyone who cares, check out the film 'wanted'. same director, also excellent film!

The books are simply outstanding. It should be noted that (as I understanding it) the two films only cover the first two thirds of the first book. The books are each split into three interlinking stores y'see.

This is an excellent deal for these films. I've just picked them up on Blu Ray so this isn't for me, but I'm really looking forward to watching them.

Can't really stress enough how good the books are though. Highly original fantasy.

Picked this up from Asda over the weekend (and forgot to post) :oops:
Haven't watched them yet (or seen them before), but been interested for a while having heard great reviews. I'd heard a different version with fancier subtitles was supposed to be coming out at some point, and was going to wait for that but couldn't resist at this price.

Thanks guys.

Cibarious & Crazy Jamie - I didn't realise there were books as well - I would definitely like to get them - anyone got any tips or good deals? Are they comic style books or "proper" novels?

It's been a while since I bought them, but I buy most of my books from Amazon. Have a hunt; most retailers stock them. I noticed that Waterstones recently changed their classification in store from Sci-Fi/Fantasy to Horror, so if you're looking in store they could be in either. I'd class them in the former category personally, though they do have dark elements to them.

They're actual novels as opposed to comic style. The only tips when reading them that I can give is to take your time. I read the last book very slowly because I didn't want the series to end, but in their own right they are detailed, and actually quite deep in terms of the morality of the world as well. For that reason I think you'll get the most out of them if you don't try to rush them.

Do be aware that the style is unusual though. Whilst I did enjoy the first book, I didn't fully appreciate the style until part way through the second, which is when I was hooked.

Load of crap. Unless you're Twilight fan I'd avoid. I bought these and also the books on the recommendation of a fan as they were on special offer. It's all in near pidgin english and as dull as dishwater. My 2nd & 3rd books are unopened as is the 2nd film.

Just my opinion.

One of the film's real selling points were the subtitles. When I saw Nightwatch at the cinema, they really made it for me. They often interact directly with the action (wiping off the screen when characters walked across, or swirl and dissolve like blood in water). It was unique and set it apart from what has now become hundreds of modern day vampire films. When I watched it on DVD the subtitles had been replaced with standard ones and the film really did have less impact.

Why, out of interest? Is it because you consider the Twilight books to be of low quality as well, or because you consider the readers of the Twilight books to be have poor taste in novels/ easily satisfied? I'm guessing it is one of those two.

Can't say I noticed that when I read them. It is obviously a translated novel because it was written in Russian originally, but I thought that the quality of the translation was good.

If you were looking for cheap thrills, you bought the wrong books. As I said previously, these are considerably deeper than other fantasy novels.

Any deal for Blu-Ray (2in1)...

It used to be £9.95 from Zavvi, along with the 28 Days/Weeks Later set, but those deals have both long expired. It's double that now it would seem. Your best bet is scouring Ebay, as they do pop up now and again.

Nightwatch is worth it, daywatch was a terrible film in my opinion plot was all over the place and **ss poor to boot

I'm not having a pop at anyone I'm just saying that if you don't like stuff likeTwilight then you probably won't like this as they are of a similar slow burning style with lots of long winded descriptions about feelings and physical sensations (usually in the middle of an 'action' bit). I don't want people wasting their money (like I did) if they aren't going to enjoy it as there is a lot of hype about this series.
Maybe it was brilliant in Russianbut the translation isn't particularly good, you can understand what it's on about but the language used isn't always the most appropriate and is a bit lacklustre. Also the punctuation is often shocking, the dialogue is equally terrible, I reckon it was translated by an English speaking Russian rather than the other way round.
It's not deep, just hard to read / watch.

Fair enough. I can't say much more other than that I disagree. At least I have very high standards with regards to use of the English language in general, and I can't say I had more than a handful of issues with these books. Twilight doesn't exactly have the same target demographic as Nightwatch either, but your point on the styles did flesh that out a bit.

Yeah, that's how I imagined it would be, and what I was hoping for. Have never seen subtitles like that, and sounds great. :-D
Closest I've seen is probably episode names on "Heroes" (and possibly the locations on "Fringe")
