Second hand? If new, where from? I'd pick it up for that price, easy. Not everyone wants it on HD-DVD though.

I think (off hand) it was HMV, but no chance now as they dont sell them any more now I dont think (but I am sure people are pretty much tossing them in bins on forums by now, they should be a few quid at most).

I have not bought a HD DVD since last December when I put in a massive american order, I think I bought pretty much all of them by now :D ahhhh a year with no HD DVD buying, scary!

Mesrine: Parts 1 & 2: £17.99:

http://hmv.com/hmvweb/displayProductDet ... sku=304631

Good price, for a BD only released today and a 2 Parter too. It's this price most places but this is the HMV exclusive.

Ip Man as a film is a definite buy for me.

I guess there's no real reason not to go for the cheap Cine Asia.

Obviously there's the colour desaturation, but since the Universe is probably oversaturated... it's not worth importing.

Triangle looks stunning, so even if you hate the film, the disc will look good for you :D

Alice in Wonderland Blu-ray £12.95:

http://www.thehut.com/blu-ray/alice-in- ... 74541.html

This is the Blu-ray+DVD version, instead of the more expensive Blu-ray+DVD+Digital Copy (which is nearly a fiver more!). Annoyingly there is no Blu-ray only version. It's still a good price though.

I was going to pick it up but my Bro's got the DVD on pre-order and I've heard very mixed things indeed.

Show me where it's cheaper? If not shut up. I never said it was a bargain, just the cheapest I can find it.

With Quidco and vouchers it is cheaper, but you dont bother with either :thumbs: so are not interested in saving a few more quid. So what you found is not even close to the cheapest, just like I informed you Bad Boys Blu Ray was nearly £3 quid cheaper than what you paid for it, bet you did not bother going for what I found on that one either :lol: keep on tossing your cash away.

Obviously you know me so well :?.

As we've discussed many times before. It's better to post links without Quidco discounts, those people can add later. I'm not aware of any general The Hut vouchers but I guess you know better. I'd have posted it, if I know of a compatible one.
romerojpg wrote:So what you found is not even close to the cheapest
So you're saying it's still not the cheapest with Quidco and possible vouchers added? If so, please post the retailor, where it is cheaper? If that is still The Hut, your point makes no sense.

I cannot buy something I don't know exists. I've only just spotted your reply. I'll take a look. Thanks.
