Don't want to sound like I'm making publicity or anything, but I found on Play.com some great DVD boxes at very low prices (less then half than what you find in stores) and I thought some of you guys might be interested as well - namely those of you living in EU/UK. X-Men 6-disk trilogy, Alien 9-disk quadrology, Die Hard quadrology and others at about 10 EUR shipping included. I'm only gonna give 1 link here, but I've actually spent like half a day yesterday browsing through their DVD Bargain pages and ordered 30-40 great titles for less then 100 EUR all together:

http://www.play.com/DVD/DVD/3-/139824/2 ... dpr=139824

If you haven't heard of them, I can guarantee they're more than reliable (I stopped using Amazon about 2 years ago after I discovered Play), but now the prices seem lower than ever, so I had to pass by and share it with you (hope the mods won't regard this as spam - in which case, apologies)

Touché. :P But it's all a matter of... "location" let's say: some have more money than time, so they use the money to buy time; or vice-versa, some (have to) use the time to get stuff in the most "cost effective" way, as they could hardly get it otherwise. ;)

I prefer to spend 5 EUR but 1 min of my time to get a nice DVD (with cover, deleted scenes & everything), rather than 10 times less money, but 10 times more time looking for the free alternative.

I agree some movies & games come in shops at outrageous prices. That's why I'm happy when I find places like the one I mentioned above. There I can be finally satisfied with what I get for the money. And I can only hope in the future there will be more places like that, but less piracy. That way movie/game producers would make the same money, but we could easily get all our movies & games at no more than 5-10 bucks/piece. :butterfly:

You don't know where to look :P
I have a bunch of DVDs myself. The other reason I don't like them is they come bundled with commercials for goodness' sake. I paid the damn movie, why the hell do I have to suffer through commercials and ads before seeing the damn movie? :disagree:

If by "commercials" you mean trailers, that must mean you're watching those movies alone or just with the partner/family. In my case I have quite often friends over, and the trailers just warm up the atmosphere until everyone gathers around the TV from wherever they are around the house. :)

If by commercials you really mean advertisements (to beer or whatever...), then you must change your DVD provider. :P I have around 200 DVDs on my shelves, and I don't think there's any of them which has sth else than just a couple of trailers in the beginning. Some maybe have a bit too many trailers, but you can skip that.

What was that about the LotR trilogy being mostly about people walking (Clerks 2 i think)?! Good quality for a fan made trailer though...

Looking forward to it. If I only see one movie in theater this Summer (looking for babysitters is a hassle), that's going to be the one.

Yeah, I forgot to comment about that one. I was really impressed to see what they managed to accomplish with a budged of less than 5000 bucks.

Yep. Everything I hoped for and more. Spock & Uhuru -- who knew?
