OK, I know this isn't super cheap compared to most Blu-ray deals that get posted on here, but to me this is an excellent price for a 2-disc edition that has been out for just ONE WEEK.

Looking at just shy of £15 everywhere else!

Thanks, drapertron!

I was going to buy this when it was an Exclusive at HMV, but didn't. Then saw it was released for general sale earlier this month at other retailers & still haven't committed to buying.

No excuse to wait any longer now

BFN,

You're welcome! Glad to be of help. I went into Tesco tonight to buy it and they didn't have it - turned out to be a slice of good fortune!

Great price, don't forget quidco either!

Oh man, this is hot and tempting. But I have no money left.

Thanks for posting. I just ordered this after resisting buying it today instore from HMV for, what I thought was a cheap £20.

damn i thought they werent going to release this due to both films being from different film companies

That's never been the case.

Damn you Op and hotukdeals, more money spent!! Great find and good price!!

Great price, I grabbed this when it was HMV exclusive for a fiver more and don't feel hard done by. So great to finally see them back-to-back, the extras are good too.

So good got the Dave Dee Dozy album that was put on here.

Great crash scene - I never liked what they did in Charmed and got rid of the older sister

I resisted for 4 hours. Now purchased.

Bargain! Bought!

Pity that there's no lossless audio

Price matched by amazon now

Is that true no loss less? Didn't the films have this when they were out before I can't remember I had them both from love film ages ago. Great find!

Original Poster

There's lossless on the German edition, I believe. 5.1 DD on this version.

I'd be annoyed if they hadn't made the actual film look deliberately bad, ha!

Worth it just for the 'THANKSGIVING' trailer.

Doesn't this edition contain cut versions of both films? Cut for time rather then content to fit into the double-bill scenario but still cut is cut. I'd rather have them seperate and uncut if that's the case.

Reviewer here blu-ray.com/mov…07/ doesn't think the vanilla DD5.1 audio really matters. More in keeping with the type of film - given that a lot of post processing has been done to make them look as if they are damaged prints etc...

These aren't "cut", the stand alone releases were extended so that they could be released separately. These are the original cuts of the movie. I have the stand alone on DVD but would rather watch them back-to-back they were supposed to be seen to be honest.

My opinion was that the extended edition of Death Proof was far, far too long. When I was watching it I thought there was a lot of scenes that could've gone - hopefully it'll be faster-paced now.

Think the running time of each extended edition is roughly 110 mins, whereas part of the 'true' Grindhouse presentation they're about 80-85 mins each with 15-20 mins of fake trailers. So 3 hrs 10 mins.

Was absolutely gutted it flopped in the States!

Yeah I found Death Proof, whilst a good movie overall, lost it's way or rather failed to make its point by being overlong. I am looking forward to the edited version which will hopefully be more punchier. I love the ending of Death Proof. But the talkie sections were sometimes way over talkie.

Both Death Proof and its zombie counterpart failed to live up to my expectations. I think they were too high. So another viewing will probably give me a more balanced view.

Personally thought Deathproof was terrible in it's extended incarnation. Hopefully the cut version will improve it somewhat.

HMV had a 3-month exclusivity deal (18 October 2010 to 17 January 2011).

What's wrong with Play? What did they do to you? The only thing that's wrong with them is that they take 5 days to get things to your door.

They are a terrible company, that are getting a really bad reputation lately. their after sales and customer service are abysmal.
Three times now they've sent me out the wrong item, so i have to go through all the hassle of sending it back, and then have to keep ringing them and e-mailing to get my postage costs refunded.
And many customers have had problems with faulty stuff and Play passing the buck by saying you have to contact the manufacturer.

Nasty dude. I just checked my records in over a 10 year period I have ordered 200 items and no major problems. But I've never had a chance to test their customer service. And I hope I never have to.

I never order now off Play unless its a scorching hot deal that i cant pass up.
A month or two ago back i thought i'd give Play another chance.... I ordered a Guns N Roses T Shirt in large. After waiting two weeks with my order at 'processed' stage, i finally got a 'item dispatched' mail. When it arrived they had sent me a Goonies T Shirt in medium... WTF !!
Then i have all the hassle of repacking it and going up the post office to return it at a cost of £2.24. After over a week of phoning and mailing them to get my postage refunded, they refunded me £1.80... more e-mails and a phone calls to get them to refund the correct amount.
I never did get the Guns N Roses T Shirt.... as by this time they were out of stock.

Useless, hopeless company.

I was going to suggest you could post the above text as a Review for Play.com, but it seems a recent change to the site has removed that functionality...
