Quote from: Buelligan on September 14, 2021, 04:28:31 PMNow 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.

Quote from: chveik on September 14, 2021, 11:18:09 PMwith the easing of covid restrictions i bet you could find some bargains at brocantes and things like that. or look on french sites like leboncoin, emmaus, gibert, you'd have far less postage costs
Quote from: Sebastian Cobb on September 15, 2021, 12:13:54 AMDunno if you've seen it before or whatever so don't want to get into spoilers but please pipe up in the film sub when you do get round to it. It's my favourite.

Quote from: Malcy on September 15, 2021, 08:19:34 PMOther benefit of DVD's are the special features, especially on things like Seinfeld. I don't get this "you still buy DVD's"? or "you mean you don't just use Spotify"? bullshit i see a lot of these days.

Quote from: Shit Good Nose on September 15, 2021, 11:47:11 PMThe 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).

Quote from: Big Mclargehuge on September 16, 2021, 12:17:02 AMOoh 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:when players were first being sold they took the Robocop TV series and recut it into 4 TV movies that got dumped on one of these multi disc things to sell alongside players, but I've never seen one in the wild!
Quote from: JamesTC on September 16, 2021, 12:26:20 AMI own that! Got it from Music Zone before it shut down. Just the discs now since I got rid of many of my DVD cases to save space a few months back.EDIT: You can get it for £1 plus delivery off CEX.
