Title: The price of DVD's
Post by: Head Gardener on September 14, 2021, 04:06:22 PM
has gone down quite a bit from just a few years ago, as seen in my local Barnardo's today, they are normally 20 for £1 so this is a BARGAIN

I remember when VHSs were on their way out and you could buy them for £1 at the Oxfam Bookshop in Brighton, really good films as well. It looks like DVDs are worth even less.

Lethal Weapon 2 is quite a good find. Did you buy any of the DVDs in your photo? I tend to buy more books than DVDs from charity shops these days although you do get some good DVDs among the dross.

SUPRAS INVADE LAS VEGAS. The largest gathering of Toyota Supras in the world.

And it could be yours for just 20p.

In the stockroom at my girlfriend's charity shop there's loads of DVDs that are still in the cellophane wrapper. Some stuff I wouldn't mind watching, but I've not had a DVD player for at least five years by now.

Now that youtube has gone narc, if you can't afford subscriptions to places like Netflix - especially if, like me, you live outside the anglosphere, dvds are the only way. 

A man I clean for gave me a new small dvd player with a usb port that I can use on my puter.  I hunt for cheap dvds (but here, that means Ebay and the postage to Europe is like a tenner a go).  Been slowly collecting stuff that I'd like to watch or love already, getting Loachie's catalogue together at the mo but it's painful slow.  I save them up for days that need cheering and they work a treat.  A joy, a new to me dvd.

Do DVDs in charity shops entice people to come in and maybe buy other stuff? Because you do wonder if those shelves could be used for items that would make more money if they are only selling them for 20p. Or do they get so many DVDs that their stockroom would be full if they didn't put them out? I know charity shops sometimes won't take books if they've got loads of them.

Used to love walking up and down the aisles of That's Entertainment looking at columns of shit like this, fucking entire landscapes made up of FIFA and Wii Quiz with zero hope of ever being rehoused. A newer one opened up here in town with no name that now does seconds of vinyl and deluxe editions of shit but still the stuff nobody wants like 19 discs of The Small Faces or an entire run of Style Council b sides along with the usual Family Guy and I, Ron Man DVDs

Have you got Land and Freedom? That's probs my favourite but seems a bit less mentioned than some of his work. It is/was relatively un-streamable, (bfi only last time I looked) so apart from that it's dvd-only.

Would have loved being a kid now. In my day you had a fiver and it would buy you 4 Star Trek videos from Cash Generator. Now I could buy 100 films on DVD.

I had so little to watch when I was younger that I saw About a Boy and I Spy numerous times.

In the mid 2000's when I was in University there was a cash converter with a few shelves of aging Megadrive games, and I still had mine, a couple of quid each for most stuff, I bought a lot of shit (Lawnmower man) and some gems (Jungle Strike, EA hockey).

Still bought DVDs up until a couple of years ago because a lot of world/indie films were impossible to find on streaming and it was good to keep your Artificial Eyes and Second Runs and those lads in action, albeit by paying low prices at Fopp or HMV when I was back in the UK.

Genuinely don't understand what kind of person would shell out £15 to own a copy of Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, though.

By Summer 2009 there was a charity shop in Teignmouth selling VHS tapes for 10p each. Don't remember seeing them around much longer after that, it had been a few years by then since you could buy new ones on shelves.

Just before the second lockdown there was one in Farnborough selling DVDs for 25p each, good ones too like the Python films and random Oscar winners from the 90s and 2000s. Bought a ton of them and they got me through the winter nicely.

My work has a pile of about 50 DVDs on a "help yourself" basis near where you make tea. Most of the films are less than 10 years old and one or two are still in the plastic. Now is the time to stockpile, before the format hopefully becomes retro and desirable.

A few of my old DVDs have become unplayable, the dreaded 'disc rot', although mostly very early titles in the format (including 'single layer' discs that you had to flip halfway through). Also my toddler has scratched some of his toddler discs to shit pulling them in and out the case, but that's standard.
I think the inherent flimsy nature of discs makes them less collectable than eg vinyl or even VHS tapes - even if the tape case is smashed up you could probably salvage the tape itself if you cared that much. A scratched or rotted DVD is utterly useless.

Several 'complete dvd collections' (half a dozen boxes or more) for sale on Facebook marketplace for £30 or so. If it weren't for the pandemic and the baby I'd pick up a few and enjoy picking through it. But it's probably all shite, and I've got my own boxes full of shite that I never watch clogging up the garage as it is.
Still, a cheap way to get months/years of entertainment for some people, for the cost of a few months prime membership (which you might make back if you sell it on once you're bored).

The price of DVDs now is ridiculous.  Being a very early adopter of the format in 1997 (importing a region 1 player from the States) I still remember the days in the UK of VERY limited selection, £19.99-29.99 in price (£19.99 being the cheapest), always with zero extras, and usually non-anamorphic or even - yeurk! - pan and scan.  Compared with the thousands of titles released in the US almost overnight which averaged £7-11 brand new fully delivered to the UK from the likes of Jungle, DVDEmpire, DVDPacific and Play, usually anamorphic widescreen and packed with extras.  That was also when new cinema releases in the UK were still months after the US release, so you could often buy the region 1 DVD before the UK theatrical release (Blair Witch Project - which I absolutely hate, but that's by the by - being a good example).

Mind you, I've pretty much completely switched to blu-ray and 4K UHD now, so the only time I look at DVDs is for films and TV shows that either will never be released on another physical format, or stuff I'm not particularly bothered about having in HD or 4K (South Park, for example, and it's mighty sweet being able to pick up a whole season of that for just a few quid including postage).

I've found a lot of charity shops have been throwing these multi disc sets away which is such a shame as i'd happily pay them 20p for them! before the fuckening started one of my favourite hobbies was going into my town center and hitting every charity shop and used DVD shop I could find and just gutting them of anything and everything that looked even remotely appealingly shite...like who doesnt want to watch this movie based on the cover alone!?:

Yeah, it was a strange time when I could frequently import DVDs from Europe or even America for cheaper than the UK alternative (at least, the prices they were sold in shops).  Also the BBFC were only just beginning to relax their draconian policies towards 'nasties', and horror movies and anything remotely racy would frequently be trimmed (compared to USA or Europe edition).  Thankfully the likes of Arrow seem to be able to get almost anything through nowadays.  Weird seeing the graphic cover for Nekromantik proudly displayed in HMV.

Ooh I have that one too for "Witch house" and "Final Scream" I have shivers and Shawshank on bluray, but im hoping to do a piece next year on "Shite knockoffs of mainstream horror films" and "Final Scream" is definitely going to be covered in that xD they're really great value sets honestly, theres usually some great movies hiding on them like "Def by temptation", "Antropophagus", "Progeny" I mean; theres a LOT of shite too but when it's 20-50p it's always worth it xD

I've been keeping an eye out for this one for a while:

freaks my nut out how the DVD era made the CD era look long. and how there's a box beyond the tills of the local flat-roofed Morrisons that lets you take whatever you want for a donation. stuff that retailed for £12-17 ten years ago unguarded for pennies. still, it was originally sold to recoup for the production, not the intrinsic value of the object itself.

EDIT: You can get it for £1 plus delivery off CEX (https://uk.webuy.com/product-detail?id=sdv2robe001&categoryName=dvd-tv-doc-1-pound&superCatName=film-tv&title=robocop-collection-4-tv-films&referredFrom=search).

Delivery on CEX is per item so it isn't really economical to order from there unless it is for something specific that you can't get elsewhere easily. You can filter by local store so you can browse the stock and order online and then collect in store without any delivery fees.

I hunt for cheap dvds (but here, that means Ebay and the postage to Europe is like a tenner a go).  Been slowly collecting stuff that I'd like to watch or love already, getting Loachie's catalogue together at the mo but it's painful slow.  I save them up for days that need cheering and they work a treat.  A joy, a new to me dvd.

You should save up all those tenners for a flight back to the UK and buy that Mystery Box. Don't open it until you've flown all the way back!

It's a great idea but I'm not sure I could live through the adrenaline spike.  Too much excitement for this little life, I'll leave that stuff to the professionals.

Knowing my luck, anyway, I'd probably get home and find the whole box was full of cocaine.

£19.99-29.99 in price (£19.99 being the cheapest)

Thanks for explaining that to us Professor Maths.

The worst thing is that simple arithmetic shows that the cheapest would have been -£10.
