Didn't know that thanks does it have to be downloaded to a mac or any pc.
That's correct the only people buying DVD's are usually ill-informed or bargain hunters who can't afford blu's, the collectors switched from dvd to blu in 2006 then to 4K along time ago (y)
I bought it and left heat anyway si im happy - thanks and appreciated (y)
I thought it was a good deal and a bit of a glitch that’s why I posted it. But it’s gone very cold which has surprised me.;( It’s turned into an argument for and against physical media which is not what I was expecting. Oh well I tried! (angel)
I thought the lock down episodes from last year were impossibly hard work. Man! It took me weeks to get through those four(?) episodes. I really didn't think it could get worse than those. I'll probably check out this weeks just for the hope of keenans 'whats up with that' or maybe his scared straight sketches they always make me smile and Jason Sudeikis dancing is always great.
This season hasn't been great, I do agree. A couple of standouts though, but only really because they're former cast members in Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph. John Mulaney is always a good host as well.
I've seen all the episodes from the 90s on and a lot of episodes prior. I watched religiously. Knowing some sketches word for word. Massive fan of Barry f'ing Gibb but the current season is just dreadful. I'm currently 5 episodes behind and I don't think I'll ever watch those episodes. I'd probably watch if Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake hosted though (y)
SNL doesn't work for a lot of people in the UK, unless the host is particularly relatable. Personally I like it and I've watched it for years. Keegan Michael Key is hosting this weekend which should be good because of his sketch show experience with Jordan Peele.
Got it for 4.63 ,the Dolby Atmos is supposed to good in it.
The movie is amazing on 4K it’s never looked so good ! 100% worth £10
Absolutely. Bear in mind this is a dark film in many places so the contrast differences and HDR make a huge difference. It’s like watching it again at the cinema - and I would know, I watched it in a re-release screening
In case you're interested https://store.hmv.com/store/film-tv/4k-ultra-hd-blu-ray/alien-(1) Just bought one.
Watched Alien for the first time in my life last week and it was this version. If you have a HDR capable display this is stunning. The scene at the end where she’s escaping the ship is some of the best 4K footage I’ve seen. Can’t wait for the Aliens UHD next year now
Is it just me or is there a lot of metalwork inside the ship that is now gold when it used to be silver? Specifically, when Harry Dean Stanton as Brett enters the hanger looking for the cat. Maybe that was just the VHS version? :)
I don't agree with him being frozen out,after the details of the court case being release I have major question marks over the judgement,there were some third party witnesses who confirmed amber as instigating abuse towards him.There are some good movies with female main characters,red sparrow and salt were great but you don't just take another franchise and just replace them with all females.
Well Johnny Depp’s been frozen out for other obvious reasons, but yeah I agree Hollywood hasn’t got the hang of equality yet.
Exactly ,even at 1p I will vote it cold.I would need to be paid to take it.
I hate the obsession with making movies and replacing the male characters with all females.There can be both female and male characters in them.They are making an all female pirates of the Carribbean movie instead of a sequel with Johnny depp who was brilliant in them.Its going to be just as trash as this movie.I hope the sequel to Ghostbusters will be good.im surprised they only made two of them.
There's an extended version of this??? HAHAHAHAHAHA Literally the only funny thing about this film. One of the worst things my eyes have ever seen.
They're considerably more expensive, modern pictures' generally are finished digital, so they're basically grading for the different formats. They have top men working on this right now ... top men. Although they can save some money and not let Ben Burrt near it. Saying that this is just the UHD movies and bonus disc, so the UK release maybe better value, depending on what your digital needs are.
What you arguing with me over digital for? I never said I was pro digital I’m all for physical media, I have a collection of over 1000 discs, but the costs of physical media are going to be the demise of the format. You can’t justify high price tags like that. Wind your neck in and actually read what people are writing rather than going on some rant about something I agree with you on. I don’t like digital copies I like the maximum bitrates and not having to rely on internet to watch my movies. Calm down
Are you seriously wanting an explanation as to why a digital thing is cheaper than a physical thing (confused) Staffing, distribution, storage, manufacturing, materials etc etc as you mentioned PHYSICAL things but you enjoy your borked compressed streams that suffer quality loss audio and video and you don't ever actually own if it apple pulled the plug on digital do you seriously think your content will stay and continue working? (although I'm pretty sure they would find a way of still making you pay to play it) but digital content is pretty volatile compared to physical + you have to rely on streaming not having any issue when playing stuff back that said digital will have a place always now due to availability and ease of distribution and costs but collectors will always want a physical copy for that quality playback and cinematic feel
Needs to be less than 50 for me.
I know a lot of hard work goes into these but how come digital copies are so much cheaper it kinda debunks that theory. I get paying extra for discs as its a physical thing but the pricing still makes no sense. Itunes had indy on offer for 4.99 each and they’ll be upgraded to uhd when the discs are released which means no one putting all that hard work in really gets paid a bean

In-store a couple of Alien have the slipcover but no sticker mentioning the art cards.
Just received my copy of alien l, shake it hasn’t come with the art cards shown on the site so must be just using a stock image
i really like Prometheus. Not so much Covenant. The story is OK i think, it just didn't work imho..
Also in Fopp (Manchester) :
I recently watched Covenant and what a disappointment. It was a really poor story line. Nothing new or even interesting. Still the usual land on an planet and do no checks before leaving the ship, it's just so lazy, it then repeats Prometheus for a bit before we get to a very weak ending. As pointed out prequels are mostly pointless as your hampered by the original first film.... which tends to define where we are headed. As Alien gets is so right with a very different but great second film. Why do they think we want or even need to know how or why it all started? Alien in 4k is fantastic and worth it.....
My iTunes copy just got upgraded to 4K Dolby Vision! 😁
Have some heat, only a tramp would vote this cold.
One of my favourites, made no sense to me on my first watch, wasn't paying attention, rewatched and loved it, almost hypnotic. Worth the price if you are a fan, cheaper than other places, heated. Worth hanging out for it to be £6 in CEX otherwise I guess.
Heat added, as its a decent chunk off the pre-order price.
Two 4K discs for two cuts. So, apart from Battle Royale, their biggest UHD title so far IMO.
No, manga was a uk distributer of licensed anime. Which in itself is a bit daft because manga is the Japanese word for comic. Ninja scroll, ghost in the shell, perfect blue etc are all anime films which were licensed for sale in the uk by a distribution company named manga entertainment.
I’m not sure what you’re saying either... I never mentioned the word anime and didn’t call it a genre either. HMV used to do a manga section in their stores. At that point in time it was new to the UK and they were all brutal adult cartoons. That was all that was really available in this country. Manga was a genre in its own right that followed that specific style of adult cartoon.
I wasn't aware of that, I was however aware of Sony trying to buy them and pretty much establishing a complete monopoly on anime streaming and publishing in the west after buying crunchyroll. Not that I imagine any of their questionable practices will be improved with a change in ownership, especially with Sonys censorious game division. Shame that Manga UK will come under the same umbrella.
Thank you for posting. Your thread has been selected for our Highlights section (highfive)
Yeah true, thing is, I'm just not a massive fan of that collection set. Would much rather have the individual boxes than some weirdly shaped box which doesn't really sit well on a shelf
I dont really see phenominal improvement on animateds in 4k, myself.
I do try and check most against Camelcamelcamel for these so possibly they missed that. I just saw that they'd dropped from £15 to £14.99
I mean I got 4p back in "preorder price guarantee" so were that price on release for the 4 recent ones.
Pedantic as it is, they've dropped by a penny at Amazon plus with Prime it's still the cheapest way to get them. Aladdin has had a £10 drop Frozen dropped by about £2. I didn't put the cheapest one as the header price as I didn't want to mislead anyone and people get annoyed when you spam multiple listings.
I enjoy(ed) these - the trick is to just not think of them as resident evil movies, think of them as mutant zombie action B films...and then they are surprisingly good fun. There is continuity between them, they do actually make sense and whilst the acting is indeed generally terrible, they have enough good moments to stand out. These have been a bit cheaper (I paid £36 from amazon for the same set) but with the quidco this is almost the same price - a worthy investment imo. have some heat.
So depressing. Who the hell is voting this hot?.
Ordered. Thanks op
dont forget to use quidco, 4% off, its something at least, i remembered afterwards so not sure the details
