Much better!

Heat added.

lol @ new titles ')

Films I already got in previous multibuy offers:
Once Upon A Time In America
District 9
Reservoir Dogs
Pulp Fiction
Alien
Inglourious Basterds
Pan's Labyrinth
Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind
Source Code

This doesn't leave many in these offers that I would want if I already own most of the ones I'd want!
Can anyone comment on Fight Club, Bubba Ho-Tep, Halloween, Micmacs, Bronson or Lost In Translation? Are any of them worth the upgrade? Also is Red Hill any good?

lol yea old titles or titles that didn't sell loads when they were released

Superb, been meaning to pick up Blade & Dusk Till Dawn, cheers

Fight club is a wonderful film might take one or two views to really understand it but most have .

a few of my top 25 appear on this list. If I didn't have them already, I'd be all over this like a high definition rash.

Yes Fight Club is a must see. My favourite film ever. Out of the others you said, I'd suggest Bronson, pretty good and a true story.

Heat just for those Tarantino ones!

Cold for misleading title.

Harsh, a lot of these titles are only a couple of years old, and a lot of the older titles have only been released on blu ray recently.

meh, most available at blockbuster

Picked up ET and jaws, both have digital copies too which is a bonus

Just to clarify, the ones I listed other than Red Hill I have already seen (most of them several time), I was asking what the transfers are like and are they worth a fiver? Not sure Bronson is but Fight Club?

I was singularly unimpressed by Red Hill. Have you got any preconceptions? I could send you the DVD if you're interested.

Usually rubbish titles when these offers pop up but these are pretty decent. Good find.

Fair enough. Might just borrow it from someone, there are a few Aussie gems out there and I've read some mixed reviews of it but the worst reviews saying it's average at best.

If only I could combine the tesco one (Jumanji) with one of these

Fight Club is superb on Bluray and a must own!

Superb story, brilliant acting and a soundtrack that just pushes it to the next level. I bought it having not seen it a while back from Amazon and have watched it a couple of times just to take it in and 'look' a bit closer ; )

Superb collection!

if you enjoy jumanji you should check out zathura which is considered sort of an unofficial sequal involving a similiar board game. its often included in boxsets with jumanj.dont think zathura is available on blu ray though only dvd

Halloween is a good transfer - got that from hmv's going under sale last year.

All good films (no idea about Red Hill though, sorry, but 6.4 imdb score and having Jason Stackhouse star in it does not bode well) - presumably you know that, since you say "upgrade" - does that mean you already have them on DVD? - Bubba Ho-Tep is pretty old and low budget, so I very much doubt the picture quality will be a noticeable step-up from DVD, the others (esp. Fight Club and possibly MicMacs and Lost in T) could be very good picture-quality-wise and worth an upgrade if you consider £5 a film a good enough deal (it sort of is, but for me, £4 per film is the golden ratio)

I have a diff question for any film buffs here: which of the following will warrant repeated viewings and which are view-once-then-discard?

Death Proof

Despicable Me

District 9(I already have the DVD from that awesome £1 HMV STEELBOOK deal, haven't watched it yet (!) nor when it came on Channel 4 - should I hold out for the BD?)

I've already spent a bunch on Blockbuster BDs and really, REALLY don't want to spend any more, but Amelie, Pan's Labyrinth and Pulp Fiction are such amazing classics and are films that I KNOW I would want to look at again, so I'm thinking I'd like to buy those... but £20 is still quite a lot of cash, and £30? Forget it!...

I know D9 is a classic in the making, but like I said, I have the DVD (still waiting to sort out my AV set-up to do it justice) and Despicable Me looks a lot of fun and is pricy from other sources (£6 USED form Busters!) AND Death Proof is available on (very scratched, no doubt) DVD for £1.50 from BBusters...

what to do, what to do...

Hi Shoesize, I remember your reply to me in the blockbuster DVD 2 for £3 thread. I bought Pan's Labyrinth in fs/trade the other day (from hammer69) and it was mint but £5 so clearly that's my tipping point..Anyway, it's like watching a different film on blu-ray, the colours/shades are enhanced, the sound is magnificent. It's how the director intended it to be seen I imagine. So if its the standard one you're after grab it for £5 and sit back and enjoy!

Here's a nice little coinky-dink: Death Proof, Defiance and District 13 (all "D"s!) ALL have a 7.1 imdb score! (District 9 is an 8!) - and Despicable Me is a 7.6...


(and I've only seen one out of those - D 13 - which is a lot of fun, but not a classic, unless it's a French Parkour-inspired-action-sequence classic that we're talking about - a pretty narrow niche, non?)

Edited by: "Shoesize" 1st Jul 2013

Saw Death Proof and wouldn't want to watch it again. However, Despicable Me is one that can be watched over.

Quite different things though - Tarrantino vs Animated Family film.

I love me some Tarantino - Pulp Fiction is one that I HAD to watch EVERY TIME it came on TV, just can't turn off! And never owned it on DVD (have about 3 copies of the soundtrack though - don't ask!)

Love Kill Bill, Jackie Brown, Inglourious B, Res Dogs and the ones he only wrote / produced - True Romance and From Dusk... so am I gonna love this as much?

Edited by: "Shoesize" 1st Jul 2013

Argh, just realised I glossed over Requiem For A Dream and Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind, both stone-cold classics and absolute MUST HAVEs for any serious cineast. GODDAMMIT, I don't have £30 spare!

Hmmm.... on 3 of these classics, I'd only save literally 26p / 29p each if bought separately from Amazon & their 3rd parties (Pulp, Requiem, Eternal Sunshine).
I think I'll leave them all, since I can't decide anyway.

Or do you think those prices will jump back up as soon as this offer ends?

Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind didn't do it for me...

I liked the main idea behind it and I liked the non-soppy love story, but I LOVED the visuals. Worth it just for that. Gondry is simply a master of that intricate filmic trickery.

I'm not really a fan of Winslet either. The Jim Carrey film I liked most was I Love You Phillip Morris. I leant the DVD to a friend and guess what...he still has it in his collection!oO

if you got a 3d set up you can get despicble me on 3d on for £7.60 from amazon. it comes with the normal blu-ray on a separate disk also.



District 9, hands-down. Not watched my blu-ray yet but it's one of my favourite sci-fi's of all time.

Yeah I meant upgrade from DVD. I have heard iffy things about some transfers - Lost In Translation included - and Bronson hasn't got much replay value. Halloween and Bubba Ho-Tep don't look amazing on DVD but they could be enhanced by an HD transfer, I just wondered if anyone had them on blu-ray and could comment on the picture/sound. Micmacs is the most enjoyable Jeunet film in quite some time - I've grown to despise Amelie over the years, and Delicatessen or City Of Lost Children seem to be his best efforts. I want to get Fight Club but still trying to get hold of the steelbook for a sensible price.

Anyway now I've ordered two of the Amazon 2-for-£10 blu-rays (4 blu-rays for £20) and they're films I've been looking for at good prices for some time - Zatoichi, Fargo, Hidden (aka Cache) and Rescue Dawn. Awesome!

PS: Eternal Sunshine is great. Possibly not as great as other Kaufman-written films but definitely Gondry's best film and possibly Carrey's too (and Winslet). As for Kaufman I prefer his films with Spike Jonze (Adaptation, Being John Malkovich) or his debut film as director - Synecdoche, New York.

Why is everyone reviewing the films to the guy who asked if they're worth upgrading from DVD to Blu-Ray?


He's presumably seen them, he's asking about the quality of the transfer to HD.

Could most of these at hmv in their 5 for £30 deal

Could most? This is a better deal anyway.

It is a better overall colleciton that Tesco's deal where I picked up independance day and horrible bosses yesterday morning but I was in my local sainsbury store this morning and I have to say, both stores "in-store collection" on the selves are poor of epic proportions.

All the good ones appear to be online rather than in the shops from what both my local stores have on the shelves. Have some heat for this deal and it is better that tesco's.

pretty nice selection
