Thanks. I thought votes were mainly given on the basis of the deal or rather the price?
I don't think its just about finding something which happens to be cheaper than amazon at that moment. Its about finding a great deal. Anyone can use google shopping to find the cheaper retail price. I got this trilogy before xmas for 12.99 from amazon rendering this a poor deal.
Ordered.

Many thanks.

You got the extended version blu-ray for £12.99? Do you mean the DVD maybe? If you really did why not share the deal like this poster?

They've always been decent with me. I've only had one item cancelled, getting bargains like Ivy the Kiwi? for £5.

I ordered it and it was delivered within a week.
Posted so many times before and wrongly expired on the initial post.

Great price - good movies too, the english dubbing is pretty good for those who don't like subtitles.
I bought this from Choices at this price before Christmas - and it is superb!
So much better than the original theatrical releases. Each film is split into two 1.5 hour episodes with new opening credits. The extra material makes each film so much more complete and fills the gaps that were edited out of the theatrical releases.
If you enjoyed the original release you will love the extended versions. Worth every penny and a great transfer to Blu-ray.

Apologies for any disruption, inconvenience or offence to anyone, it was never intended. At least explain to me the reason for voting cold and I can try and get better at this. Are these prices (e.g this one) not the cheapest, at least online? If so, then why are they being voted so cold? Give me some guidance here...



Mainly because its been posted before.

Was over a month ago, so ok

Not when it should never have been expired. I requested mods to unexpire it on 02nd January.
Cold for complaining too much about your post getting cold votes
I'd read the bluray quality was shocking on the 2nd & 3rd films in this series so this put me off buying until a better one is made... if ever!

Don't believe the blu ray was ever £12.99??, Amazon price matched choices before Xmas (and will probably do so again) but with TCB this is a great price for a great set HOT HOT HOT

I ordered it on the back of your post but it's only now back in stock after going out of stock just before Christmas, that's probably the reason it was expired.

I had this boxset delivered from Choices just before Xmas (for £14.99).

Watched the first two films so far. Yes pic quality on the 2nd (and 3rd) is not shocking, but very grainy - looks a bit VHS at times. Did a bit of research and this is because the 1st film (Dragon Tattoo) was shot on 35mm for cinema release and the two sequels were shot on 16mm originally for TV.

In fact this extended version is split into 6 separate episodes (90mins each) and views very much like a TV mini series (as it was shown in Sweden) rather than a cinematic experience. A bit disappointing in that respect but still pretty entertaining.
Congrats Jas10, you got a hot deal after all your practice
I think you should change your avatar more often though, three times a day isn't enough.

Ordered. Hot. End of.

I take each deal as it comes - some cold, some hot, makes no difference to me who posts it etc!

Matt
The quality (of image) in the last two films is not great in places but these extended versions are brilliant. Especially the extra scenes in the first one. The 90 minutes episode thing is fine.

My Swedish wife also tells me the subtitles are more accurate FWIW.

Actually I forgot I've made 3 orders just prior to Christmas from Choices and they all arrived within a few days... so more hit than miss from me.

My advice for what it's worth... Don't stay up all night posting deal … My advice for what it's worth... Don't stay up all night posting deal after deal, pick out the best couple. Don't respond to every comment. Don't cry when you get a cold vote. Most importantly don't take it so seriously and personal.


Steady on mate, crying? Calm down will ya? Appreciate your points and taken on board, don't think I posted too much and anything bad last night (and and I don't actually stay up specifically for that) but I do admit that I made a lot of mistakes on the first day and trying to make up for them.
Let's change the subject now shall we? Apologies once again.
Thanks.

Interesting.

The other half loves the books. But she watched all three Swedish versions of the films and was very much not impressed. We went to see the US version the other week and she really enjoyed that. (As did I .... having never read the books or seen the Swedish versions.)

This might be worth a look if they are extended versions .... fiver a film for extended version blurays seems pretty reasonable.
Apologies - it was indeed the DVD! But the pic quality is so grainy on film 3 especially, I wouldn't bother with Blu Ray!! Excellent set of films though.

Expired or no HUKD allows reposts after a month. If they un-expired it and deleted this one who on Earth would ever see it? This is a good deal. Let it go.
I posted this deal a few weeks ago after ordering it from Choices, my post was removed and marked spam straight away. I had searched first too.

I received within 3 days from Choices too.

I wont post any deals again after that....

I watched the US remake the other week and thought it was OK, didn't understand the introduction of his daughter to solve the bible references - seemed unnecessary and undeveloped but I haven't read the books so may have been a carry over. Of the three: Swedish UK theatrical, David Fincher US remake and Swedish Extended versions, the Extended versions get my vote for the best versions by a country mile!
Film adaptations of books you have read are usually disappointing, but I definitely give the extended versions a look if you're a fan of the films or the books!
HOT. Been like this for a while but a fantastic price for a brilliant box set. Got mine inside a week and was very happy. How can this be anything but hot at this price??
What's the language on this? Swedish with English subs or does it have an English 5.1 audio track?
