You'd have thought that in that list, there would be something there for everybody but I was wrong. I wouldn't want to watch one of them, never mind buy any of them. Good luck to those that do.

Good price but DON'T buy A Scanner Darkly.

In case it helps, here is the list sorted alphabetically.

Possibly true, but more to the point, they made a crap movie.

In her review for The New York Times, Manohla Dargis wrote, "it's the real world or what we perceive the real world to be that makes for the more obviously bad trip, not scary little pills". Carina Chocano of the Los Angeles Times found the film "engrossing" and wrote that "the brilliance of [the film] is how it suggests, without bombast or fanfare, the ways in which the real world has come to resemble the dark world of comic books". In his review for the Village Voice, J. Hoberman wrote, "What's extraordinary about Linklater's animation, computer-rotoscoped in the fashion of his 2001 Waking Life, is just how tangible the Dickian labyrinth becomes", and praised Robert Downey Jr.'s performance: "Midway through 2006, this supporting turn is the performance to beat in what seems the year's American movie to beat". Andrew Sarris, in his review for The New York Observer, wrote, "Mr. Linklater emerges once again as the Austin auteur par excellence". Empire magazine's Kim Newman gave the film four stars out of five and wrote, "its intelligence makes it near-essential viewing". In his review for the Washington Post, Desson Thompson wrote, "Linklater's rotoscoping process underscores this grave new world with pop-arty creepiness. Its dramatically muting effect, which shaves the highs off the more histrionic performances yet doesn't undercut the more subtle elements ... squeezes everything into a unified nightmare".

On HUKD, respected movie critic ravenheart wrote the scathing polemic "they made a crap movie".

Other than Demolition man this must be the biggest list of turd movies I've ever heard of...

Shaft, Heartbreak Ridge and Jeremiah Johnson are all crap movies? News to me. This is the first time people are voting down one of these threads.

And are we really going for the A Scanner Darkly debate - again? The same discussion everytime there's a Warner Bros. £2 stand...

I love Philip K Dick's works but quite frankly they just took the **** here.

I'd say any of these are definitely worth £2, but just my humble opinion :thumbsup:

By remaining more faithful to the book than any previous Dick adaptation? How dare they! :-D

The only good film here is demolition man. They've had them all at £2 before. Asda need to get some new movies!
