The Blu-Ray movies under £7 thread

Unread postby luckystars » 02 Aug 2009, 20:14

Hey

Times are hard and I just got a BD player based on all the bargain discs I've seen at £6.99 or less online.

I'm gonna try and pick up every film I want when it drops to this price point...and that will happen!

Thoughts?

Cheers, ordered the Fly, but *sigh* I really shouldn't have because I'm already in my overdraft and my next pay is on the 26th :lol:

Street Kings sounds quite good and for £4.21 it's a virtual free rental at worst.easy get your money back on it.

Yup if I was into my buy and sell mode like I was years ago I would buy all of the stock and Ebay them all :FD and make cash, ahhh those were the days :D

Anyone could sell it for more than £4.21p and it will be an easy trade as well if you hate it.

Mind you that same seller has Meet the Spartans on blu Ray for the same price, not sure about buying that haha :D

I think Street Kings was seriously underrated when it came out, it's a little heavy handed and obviously not in the same league as L.A Confidential but it does feel like a James Ellroy film. I prefered it to the Black Dahlia.

I've ordered a copy anyway, so thanks for the link romero!

Street Kings reminded me fondly of parts of Training Day and Harsh Times with a little of Dark Blue :D all 4 of them meld into one another, good job I like all 4.

I still have not got round to watching Black Dahlia, one day this year I will I am sure :D



and if anyone wants some music with their Blu Rays

Bloody good find on that Shakira BD, thanks. I was only looking into getting this the other day but it was over £12. That's a much better price! A lot of it is Shakira's Spanish work btw. I've wanted some music in HD for ages but this is the only one out there I like. I'd love some Shania Twain in HD. Her DVDs are great but only SD.

What the hell does this mean? In the Play.com comments:
The only main bad things are the frame rate is much too low for a concert - only 24fps whereas nearly all other concerts are 50 or 60i. Some of the shots don't look very detailed, but many do.

Surely 24p is better?

I just think he is a little confused in the wording of it :) hard to get exactly what he means, still I am sure it is better than a dvd :D

There is alwasy this as well :D

I thought that. I'm sure concerts should too be 24p. In fact this was even shot in HD.

The Matrix was seriously overrated and Keanu's performance had termites.

Speed was actually rather good and even Keanu wasn't terrible. But would the film have even better with a good actor as the lead?

Probably but he did a perfectly fine job of it too. The Matrix is excellent, it's the sequels that are overrated. Anyway, you got my point.

The sequels aren't overrated - IMO. As you say Brad The Matrix is great, but most people acknowledge the sequels are pish compared to the original movie. And I quite liked Reloaded, it's just not as good as the first. Revolutions was awful.
I'd like just the first movie on BD.
