The Beach [Blu-ray] pre-order at Amazon. £6.

Found 28th Nov 2012
I was looking for the Beach blu-ray but was surprised to see it not available until next year. I found it for pre-order on Amazon for the very low price of £6. Its not released until August next year but its a great price for a great film.

With Amazons price promise on pre-orders it means £6 is the max you will pay for this. It seems a crazy low price for a new release Bluray.

Decraprio ruined it

Love the soundtrack on this. Introduced me to Moby which in turn helped me study whilst at Uni.

And the book is incredible

Yup V classy book, film is still worth a watch though.

Ewan McGregor should have been the lead. He was v **** off at Danny Boyle for not getting it. I guess it was the studio though.

Shame the actual island where they filmed it has been ruined by tourists

Guilty as charged, I went earlier in the year to Koh Phi Phi Leh when I was off traveling. The filming of the movie was actually very much damaging the Maya beach as they cleared lots of the island and 'dressed' parts of the set. The '04 tsunami wasn't exactly fault free either in the preservation of the landscape.

Its a double edged conundrum though. The island would not have much footfall if not for the film, bringing valuable funds to the local economy but would be better preserved if not. In any case, there are far more beautiful islands in S.E Asia.

DiCaprio's a better actor imo.

Aye. Full of Japanese tourists just standing around taking photos. Horrendous part of Phi Phi.

Book is incredible though. If you're ever travelling around the area, read the book whilst you're out there. Apparently the book was based on a beach in the Philippines, although I may be wrong on that.

go watch gangs of new york, why he was picked to play the lead??

Such a good film ... the song when caprio and his buddies come out to the island for the first time just brings out such a good feeling! would love to chill like that somewhere isolated in this world with just a close group of people! but then at the same time that whole going crazy tourist stuff appeals to me aswell! I like the best of both!

What are you smoking?

Great film

+1 for the great soundtrack!

And I'll stick up for Di Caprio - great actor

Love this film - and although a bit different to the book - it was by no means a let down to me and reminds me of traveliing days

What are you smoking?

He had done none of them at the time, before the Beach. Only the Titanic!

It was a role for a British guy...

He was nominated for an Academy Award and also for the New York Film Critics Circle both in 1993 - 4 years before Titanic. You may be right that McGregor may have been better suited to the role (he can't do 'American' lets face it) but DiCaprio is still the better actor. (in my opinion)

De Caprio was great in the Basketball Diaries, has gone on to better things. Ewan would have been better for the beach. Hey it's all good, I like De caprio.

You're probably right. McGregor was great in 'The Ghost' both brilliant actors when all's said.
