Re: BFI Blu-rays 6.95

I thought Bed-Sitting Room was Region B. I picked it up for about $15 from an Amazon re-seller about a year ago. Strange film. The Passolini's are great if you like his style. Just watced the BFI blu-ray of The Innocents the other night - fantastic film (my first time seeing it) and a gorgeous transfer and nice round of bonus features (not sure if it's part of this sale; just making the comment in general). --Peter

Re: BFI Blu-rays 6.95

What's up with these sites? Do they have the same exact stock and prices? Is one preferred over the other?

Re: BFI Blu-rays 6.95

Just a heads up - sometimes there are BlahDVD vouchers floating around that give you an additional 10% off. I haven't used the other sites.

Re: BFI Blu-rays 6.95

I don't know what is the difference with the sites. They all have pretty much the same prices, same layout, same products. Some way to get around taxes? I dunno. But I've had great service with blahdvd, and base.com (yes, sometimes prices differ, but rarely) and you need separate accounts.

Re: BFI Blu-rays 6.95

I ordered The Bill Douglas Trilogy and Winstanley from dvd.co.uk.
The price dropped to 5.79 in the cart for some reason (removal of VAT?) for these two, but not for some others. I had been planning to order these two titles from Amazon UK and am glad I waited, since this price was quite a bit cheaper than Amazon's sale price.

I'm thinking about ordering a few more.

One additional sale BFI title is All The Right Noises.

Re: BFI Blu-rays 6.95

Aren't all blu-rays from the UK listed as region B? It doesn't matter what region it's from, just whether or not it's locked. Magick Lantern is not region locked.

Awesome! Thanks for that info.

I have the 2 Fantoma volumes that are OOP on DVD. The only difference I can see is that this BFI version is missing the 1979 version of Rabbit's Moon? Is that correct? Also, how do the special features compare? Is this worth an upgrade?

*Edit - I just looked on BFI's site, and everything looks to be ported over, except for the 48 page books that are with the DVDs from Fantoma.

It's definitely worth the upgrade, especially at that price. There's also a full-length Anger documentary and a 38-page booklet included. Here's a review.

Re: BFI Blu-rays 6.95

If you're ordering from thehut.com, don't forget to use codes MAR10, MAR20, or MAR40 if you order 10, 20, or 40 pounds worth of stuff, respectively.

Weird. I just placed an order and got free shipping as well....even though the site definitely says it's two pounds-plus per item for shipping to the USA.
New policy or mistake?...
