British Zoners:

Just came back from HMV, where I bought Kiki's Delivery Service for £7.99, and the original Ladykillers for £2.99.

Both well worth watching, if you haven't already!

Hey, I can recommend The Wicker Man for £5.99 from the HMV... I don't know if there are better treatments out there, but that version has the original theatrical release as well as the director's cut, plus some interesting extras in the form of a "looking back," making-of, and an old television interview.
EDIT: Whoa, I just check Amazon.co.uk, and they're selling the same DVD for £15.99!!!! Holy moly, I had no idea about the great deal I got!!!

Thought I'd ressurect this one, as I just went to HMV again, and saw they had Brotherhood on sale for £7.99 in HMV, and it's even cheaper on play.com, at £6.99!

For those unfamiliar with this, it's the movie Harry voted as his best movie of 2004.

If yuo guys in the UK ever get the chance, always take time to dive into Computer Exchange (CEX). There's quite a few around the country, and there's always movies cheap that'll end up burning a hole in your pocket.

I am not sure if its everywhere...but Tower Records in Chicago is having a massive DVD sale.

Things like the Donnie Darko Director's Cut and a ton of other titles are only $10.

UKers: dunno if this has been mentioned elsewhere, but Tesco are selling the 2-disc Special Ed of Hot Fuzz for the princely sum of £10, the cheapest I've seen it so far...

You can get nearly all of the Ealing comedys for about the same if you check back into HMV every now and again...

I got the Lavender hill Mob and the man in the white suit too... and a few others but these are my favourite three... Alec Guinness is genius in a ll of them...

Passport to pimlico is quite fun too... I think they were all three pounds each in HMV...

Nice one, Boston! The Lavender Hill Mob is my favourite too - haven't seen Passport to Pimlico in years, but I remember enjoying it a lot. Whiskey Galore is genius too. Cheers for the heads-up....

I am now gonna change that question mark back to a pound sign - I think that happened when we migrated server.

To be fair, I've not seen it yet - but I did buy it, and as a fan of Spaced/SotD/Mash n Peas - I'm expecting to be amused to some extent.

Well i'm a little dissapointed, i actually just managed to finish laminating my armchair and clothes that i was going to wear whilst watching it, so that the torrent of tears streaming from my eyes whilst mid guffaw wouldn't cause any long lasting damage to the fabric... what a waste of time that was...

But on a positive side i guess i've got a thoroughly decent wanking chariot...

>innocent-whistling-smiley<

Nah - seriously, it left me untouched. A couple of bits made me laugh, and I geeked out on the film references - but little recompense really for a film that left me with a mouth like Bert from Bert and Ernie for 99% of the film.

Loved all of Pegg's other stuff though - and FUZZ still beats crap like that Mitchell and Webb film and that Ant and Dec thing from a year or two back.

If you're a diehard M&W fan (and I think you are!) then there'll be enough one-liners in there to keep you happy, certainly as a DVD rental. But as a film it feels like its been rushed out and for as many jokes that make you laugh there's at least an equal number that just fall embarrassingly flat. Its the M&W equivalent of a Mr Bean movie, in other words.

Ouch!

I am indeed a reasonably rabid M & W fan.

In fact, on my way to the first ever Zoner meet-up, I repeated to myself:

"I’m Louis Theroux. I’m Louis Theroux and his wry smile at the orgy."

:lol:

Did you see the Louis Theroux orgy thing??? It was disgusting..

There were a load of hairy old europeans and they sucked him off in a swimming pool, it was bloody ridiculous... and yet he still allowed for it to carry on....

I did indeed - my personal favourite is the one where he meets Jimmy Saville though. I feel bad saying it, but that guy is a tramp.

He is certainly that... I also liked the wrestling one which was funny the one with Keith Harris was also quite funny... But the Paul Daniels one was just plain weird...

I loved the caravan scene in the Jimmy Saville one...

Oh man - that one was just disturbing! Tight ole bastard as well he was. That whole murky part where he alluded to locking someone in his basement was unsettling to say the least.

See the recent one where Louis spent a weekend in a Vegas Casino? Comedy Gold....

Got the Die Hard trilogy box set from HMV for £10, got home to find the little booklet was missing a half & what was left was unreadable, not to mention everything was printed at an awkward angle.
at least the discs work though.

In general: Netflix members, check the $5.99 and up used DVD sale. Some amazing stuff there, guaranteed in good condition. $5.99 gets you Brick, Brokeback Mountain, District B 13 and a fucklot more. I'm only through E and I'm bookmarking scads of items.

Any movie that features old people being shot and beaten is automatically funny. Especially if they're respected British actors.

I just saw the magnificent seven box set which has all of the films you may or not want from the series and all for £15 delivered (It's in the HMV offer of the week section at the top of the screen)... it's apparently usually over fifty pounds!! so i checked amazon and they have it for £30, so you may save yourself a little... if it's your kinda thing...

Actually... scrap that... go and take a look at the HMV DVD sale on the webs, there's 86 pages of some real bargains there... mostly between three and six pounds with no delivery charges... I would urge you all to take a look through... sure, there is some shitters, but there are also plenty of lovely nuggets...

I literally just bought it... Thanks very muchly... I wouldn't consider myself to be a cheap person but i don't see the point in buying a film like that when you can wait a month and save more then half of the price....

Just bought Predator 1 and 2 (both 2-disc editions) for $7.99 each. Also bought Ocean's 11 and 12 (single disc editions) for $5.99 each. At HMV (Canada).

On an unrelated note, anyone remember when "disc" was spelled "disk"? Good times!

Welcome to the Zone, Cool Dud3!

Yes, HMV is still pretty big in Canada. They have about the best DVD selection of anyone in these parts, but not always the best prices. But you can find deals, as I did with Predator and Oceans.

Gorillaz : Demon Days Live DVD
£4.97 at asda in uk.
Watching it now, and it seems pretty cool (if you like Gorillaz). Very nice option to watch only the Jamie Hewlett artwork along with the music. Shaun Ryder is hilarious. One to many disco biscuits I think.

Or I could just read it being regurgitated word for word on here? That'd probably be even cheaper. Interesting that you'd offer a cheap UK link to an American oil tycoon, too.

While we're recommending stuff for each other, there's an album you should go for: Let It Be

That's a keeper. Though to be fair, I probably should recommend you an album in return:

If you buy it, remember to plant a few small trees to offset the evil plastic cover and the evil petrol used to get it to you.

Ha! I searched for "end of the world" in Amazon and that was the best result. Christian I am not.

Why is it I guessed that, as an environmentalist, you're only capable of creating some kind of false straw man of me? In the very post after I mock this board/envionmentalists in general for calling anyone who disagrees with them conservative Americans (which is wrong on both accounts for me), you do the same thing in the very next post by perpetuating the false notion that only religious folk (Christians in particular) can disagree with you!

Because Christians have been brainwashed... and simply just repeat what they're told in their holy books... and call anyone who disagrees with them sinners... and you don't do any of that.

Nice of you to turn my helpful post into something completely different. And take an obviously light hearted exchange seriously. Here's something you should try doing, that as far as I'm aware isn't the name of a book or movie:

Lighten up.
