terrible transfers by the way. some of the earliest Warner catalogs - everyone of them is no better than their DVD counterpart with lossy sound tracks. PQ on US and US II is downright terrible, upresed DVD at best

Oh wow. Yeah, I didn't buy it. I was just posting, because it's technically a good deal. Didn't know about the crappy transfers.

The Blurays might not be up to current standards but they are much better than the dvd http://caps-a-holic.com/c.php?go=1&a...=82503&i=5&l=0

Got these in last night. I do want to point out that I am VERY impressed with the Indicator releases. For the price and the quality, it's certainly on par with Twilight Time and Criterion. I saw absolutely no reason (and I was planning to) to keep my US blus of Ghosts of Mars or Anderson Tapes and put them in my sell pile. (I did do a quick M2D for Ghosts of Mars though)

I can confirm that the UK version of 9 1/2 Weeks looks a lot better than the US counterpart. It is the same runtime too (only +/- 2 seconds) which would at least indicate (without taking the time to do a frame by frame) it is the same cut as well despite the package saying 112 minutes, it is indeed 117. It comes in a European style case as well for those who care. The American version of 9 1/2 weeks is on the sell pile too. It's a shame that it doesn't M2D.

Re: Amazon.co.uk Boxset Deals

I was considering getting S1 of Daredevil at Target with the Cartwheel coupon. It could come out at about $23-24. But I thought I'd check Amazon UK for any region free deal, and I found a nice one. About $17 shipped. So it's on its way by slow boat. That's OK. A blind buy for me, and I'm looking forward to seeing it.

Re: Amazon.co.uk Boxset Deals

First real deal since release

https://www.amazon.co.uk/UFO-Complet.../dp/B01LYB15X9
34.95

Sold by NextDayEntertainment, fulfilled by AmazonUk and ships to to the US
VAT even comes off which seems unusual for a 3rd party even when Fulfilled by Amazon

Shipped price to the US 32 -- around $41.50 - $43 depending on your payment style

Well that didn't hang on long -- Amazon bumped the price to 44.95 within minutes so shipped price now around $53USD

EDIT: 3:45pm ET - price back to 34.95. Hopefully it lasts a while this time

Ha! I just noticed the price-drop and placed an order for this before coming into the thread.

UFO is a blind buy for me, but the stills of Gabrielle Drake I've seen over the years has me thinking I'll find at least some entertainment value in it.

I kept expecting them to release a season set only and eventually lose the 600 page book it comes with to save direct cost and shipping, but so far still the Limited Edition. I have seen these since they were first run when I was in college -- I think it ran back to back with Space 1999

I really dying for Network to have another 40-50% off sale so I can pick up a few of their sets or at least for them to drop teh AmazonUK price to match what would be the Direct price.
The Prisoner, Space 1999 S1-2, the new World at War original aspect ratio, and maybe a couple smaller titles. Unfortunately their international shipping charges make mixing and matching critical -- a 1 oz difference bumps shipping from $10 to $55 with no interim options.

OTOH it would be a great shipping option for a huge group order, but then at some point customs becomes an issue which I've never been able to get an absolute answer at what
amt it becomes an issue. It used to be $200, someone said not too long ago it moved to $800 for a personal package, but I've also been told media should never be charged if you aren't a reseller

Not a Blu-Ray, but an Amazon.co.uk deal.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Star-Trek-D.../dp/B00JAQ6AY0

UPDATE: Deal is dead. Back up to 44.49. Sorry

Re: Amazon.co.uk Boxset Deals

Amazon.co.uk seems to be having several different BD box sets on deep sale.

Is there a link to the sale, or any titles off the top of your head?

Re: Amazon.co.uk Boxset Deals

Unfortunately most of the big deals ended -- a number of price mistakes. Items sold out or were removed, but some lasted last night a lot longer than they should have.

By memory
ST Enterprise Complete Series 7
STTOS Complete 2
Eastwood 8 Film Boxset 2
Ultimate Gangster Box A 2
Spielberg Boxset 12

You might be able to search for some of these, but most of the prices have returned to normal. A few of the solo titles are still pretty good.

A copy of a post from bluray
Kickass 1 + 2 1.25GBP (region free)
Ninja Turtle Out of the Shadows 1.25GBP
Bad Neighbors 1.25 (region Free)
Central Intell 1.25
Ride Along 1 and 2 1.25
Desp Me 2 2.4
Desp Me 1 2.59
Snow White and the Huntsman./Huntsman Winters War 1.25GBP

Versailles Series-One-Blu-ray 1.73GBP (Region A/B 50Hz)
12 monkeys S2 2.24GBP (Reg A/B)
Last Kingdom S2 3.94GBP (prob Region Free/50Hz)
Grimm S5 2.39GBP (prob REgion free)
Defiance S1-3 2.5GBP (prob Region Free)
The Hollow Crown S1+2 3(?Region Free 50Hz)

Thx! I probably would have grabbed the gangster box for 2 pounds.

Re: Amazon.co.uk Boxset Deals

This set is a great region B bargain at about $40 shipped to the USA from Amazon France:
https://www.amazon.fr/4-Westerns-Leg...4YSQJMFDJATNBA

However, in the set I received, two of the cases were empty with no discs in them. Amazon is shipping out a replacement set. Three of the 4 titles in the set - Broken Arrow (Kino), Broken Lance (TT) and Garden of Evil (TT) have had individual stateside Region A/Region Free release

Loved the PQ on the two titles that had discs in them - these are Fox provided HD masters. Default soundtrack is French but when switched to English, French subtitles are burned in with no option to remove them. There are no English subtitles

Re: Amazon.co.uk Boxset Deals

I have been following these two Arrow titles for a while as they are both Region A/B and their FlickerAlley counterparts in the US are now roughly twice the price as in the UK. And these two titles have steadily dropped in price and have settled at the current prices for a few days now

Woman on the Run: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01CO3EA2Y
Too Late for Tears: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01CO3E9RA

Together they're $32.xx shipped to the USA after VAT removal and shipping charges (each of them goes for that much in the USA)

Additionally, the following Region Free sets are on sale at pretty low prices as well (AFTER VAT Removal) - combining multiple items saves on shipping:

Amazing Spiderman 2 3D - 4.99: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00JKHCPNE
Jaws 2/Jaws 3/Jaws The Revenge 3 movie set - 8.33: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01GRU58VC
Die Hard Legacy Collection - $8.33: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00DDVCDB2
Goodfellas - 25th Anniversary Edition - $8.33: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00UTDXZ0A

Re: Amazon.co.uk Boxset Deals

So, the Red vs Blue Chorus Trilogy Steelbook is only 10.99 pounds which after shipping comes to $16.52 American which is about 10 dollars cheaper than the current Amazon US deal w/tax and shipping. So naturally, I rather get that deal...one question. Does anybody know if this is region free or region A,B or not? The usual spots simply don't seem to indicate anybody has really tested it...it's just defaulted to its own region code and that's that. Or maybe somebody can test the USA trilogy steelbook and just see if it is okay with multiple regions. Just thinking.

Re: Amazon.co.uk Boxset Deals

I haven't seen much discussion of them yet but the UK has gotten some very interesting complete television BD sets in recent months - including The Incredible Hulk and the A-Team.

I'm extremely interested in the Incredible Hulk set and thought the SD streams on VUDU were very well done (better than the DVD set I have for sure)...so I'm curious to see how good the Blu-ray set is. But ~60 pounds...it's going to have to come down. Once I see it for ~35 to ~40 pounds, I'll be a little more interested.

Edit: Strike that...it's Region B. I'm happy with my digital and dvd set. Maybe Mill Creek will re-release it in the US, it's not that much of a stretch.
Edit: Actually Mill Creek does not have the US rights. Maybe somebody else then? Lol

I took a chance since nobody seems to know definitively. I guess I'm feeling lucky, lol...see ya in a few weeks.
