Any concerns that it all seems USA based. Will it play (should we get it at this price) on UK DVD players.

I think it's just an American box set with American spelling. It's region 2 as far as i know and from past experience, Amazon are pretty good at honouring their prices.

Will have a go.....thanks

Why watch it on blu? The film was never remastered with enough detail, to see any point in watching it in high-def...
#10
rrp 15.99. Are we sure this is 'the' gift set or just a blu-ray/dvd bundle? Amazon are good at honouring prices though so if this is the £60 one this is majorly hot!

Trying but will be amazed if they send it.
#12
A US boxset - hmmm, methinks you lot will have trouble playing
#13
I don't think this will ever happen...by Nov 8 Amazon will see this was a misprice and cancel the orders. AFAIK they've only honoured misprices on stuff in stock.

That said, I've ordered one anyway. Now all I have to do is find a friend or rellie gay enough to want it for Christmas.

Old movies and most new movies are shot in 35 mm wide negative film, and film negative is a very high resolution medium. If they use a properly stored and preserved original negative, and optimally transfer/ scan it in, the Blu-ray will end up looking fine.

HOT price for a gay film but will make some good Xmas ££££ on ebay

What we do about mispricings

Despite our best efforts, a small number of the more than 1.5 million items in our catalogue are mispriced. Rest assured, however, that we verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures.

If an item's correct price is lower than our stated price, we charge the lower amount and send you the item.

If a product's correct price is higher than our stated price, we will cancel your order and notify you of that cancellation.

Please note that this policy applies only to products sold and shipped by Amazon.co.uk.
Please note that our Pre-Order Price Guarantee does not apply in the case of mispricing, as described in the heading above this one, "What we do about mispricings".

ahhh - that explains it! Someone said to me the other day that she got 4 lions for £3.99 from amazon - I didn't believe her. I'm convinced that amazon have two types of 'mis-price' one that aims to get a product higher up their chart and the other that's a genuine mistake. Whether it comes off depends upon which type it is lol
#24
Ordered. :D
#25
Voted Hot! Another xmas prezzie sorted, if they honour it. I tried to buy an external hard drive that was on pre-order and that was posted on here from Amazon earlier this year, which looked like a pricing error, and when the hard drive was released they realised that the price was too low and incorrect, They emailed me saying it was a pricing error and that the order had been cancelled! So if this goes through i will have to wait and see, if it does, good price!
#26
Ordered, thanks !^^

Amazon price matched the Tesco **** up and honoured it as a good company should with a price promise. Tesco on the other hand cancelled them all and essentially said their price promise is a lie.

#37

#38
They have changed the price and put the picture up (looks nice!) in the last half hour.
If they are going to cancel orders, how long does it normally take them to do it?
#39
I think if you check your accounts you'll see the order has magically disappeared............so already cancelled. Good old amazon.......nice to get an e-mail first...........
