Free DVDs / Blu-Rays
« on: January 07, 2021, 07:27:58 PM »
Hi all,

With the ever changing pace of technology I am sure most of you have stuff to give away to other people.
In lockdown this might be a nice way to spread cheer / misery of films to others.

If people want to have their recipient pay for postage that can be up to them. I don't mind paying £1.26 or whatever to send it off to you. So all you have to do is ask for the DVD / BR and it is yours. No strings attached.
I am not going to be shipping anywhere outside of the UK due to customs malarky..

Films I have to offer are:

1. Tree of life - Blu-Ray Region B
2. Story of Sin - Blu-Ray Region A/B (Still sealed)
3. Hour of the wolf - DVD - UK Region (Whatever that is)
4. Ghost World - DVD - UK Region
5. Thor - Blu-Ray .. (Zavvi sent this to me in error and wont take it back - Still sealed)
6. The Deep End BFI - Region B - I can't stand to have this film in my collection its so bad :(

I'll have a few more soon - as the Criterion releases arrive.

Cheers and hope this allows people their inner Marie Kondo and make someone else happy

Anyone want the Poundland sampler of about 3 episodes of The New Stateman
or the crappy live action Thunderbirds remake with added Busted music video?

(something towards postage if you can afford'll be nice but you don't have to).

eta: both UK region 2 probably.

More than willing to pay postage of course.

I have an extra version of Body Double - Powerhouse Blu-Ray if someone wants it.

This is one of my favourite recent discoveries, so got the limited edition for myself.
As such the standard version with all extras is up for grabs if anyone fancies it :)

I'll pass one on, then - Dazed and Confused on Region A DVD (the American version), Criterion Collection. Lovely poster and book and great extras, if you have a multi region player.

I've just got the blu-ray so no need for it anymore.

Also done some upgrading to blu, so here's some stuff for anyone interested:

Police Story 1 + 2, Project A 1 + 2 (Jackie Chan, 1980s) - these are the Hong Kong Legends DVD from the 2000s, so decent editions with extras and that.
Valerie and her Week of Wonders (Jaromir Jires, 1970) - the Second Run DVD.
Alice (Jan Svankmajer) - this is the DVD from the BFI dual edition, you'll only get the disc, no packaging.
Seijun Suzuki: The Early Years Vol 1 and Vol 2 (the Arrow boxsets but DVDs only - again, discs only, no packaging)
Drunken Master (Yuen Wo-ping, 1978) - DVD from the Masters of Cinema edition, disc only, yada yada you get the idea

I don't mind paying postage, so if you want maybe just bung a few quid to Neil instead.
