Blu-Ray Price Drops: Sucker Punch ($9.64), Battle Los Angeles ($12.86) & Others @ Amazon UK

290

Edit: The Walking Dead price has gone up, but added a couple of more items (marked as "Added" below)

A couple of recent price drops for a few items I've been watching (free delivery to Oz for orders over £25, currency conversion done via Google with VAT removed already).

And before anyone ask, all UK Blu-ray's are the same region as Australia, so they should work in local players without any issues.

Here are the recent Blu-ray price drops:

The Walking Dead - Season 1 [Blu-ray] - AUD$13.50 (Expired)
Sucker Punch - [Blu-ray Triple-play] - AUD$9.64
Battle: Los Angeles [Blu-ray] - AUD$12.86
Generation Kill [Blu-ray] - AUD$20.58 (best "modern warfare" mini-series, IMO)
Fair Game [Blu-ray] - AUD$8.35 (Added)
Misfits - Series 1 and 2 [Blu-ray] - AUD$16.72 (Added)

For those still using DVD players (and have a region-free one), here are some additional deals:

Friends - 15th Anniversary Complete Collection [DVD] - AUD$57.91
Downton Abbey - Series 2 [DVD] (Pre-order) - AUD$19.28
CSI: Miami - Complete Season 8 [DVD] - AUD$19.28

And some other items at good prices, but not actually recent price drops:

Boston Legal - Season 1-5 [DVD] - AUD$57.90
Essential Comedy Box [DVD] (includes 6 movies: American Pie, Superbad, Talladega Nights: The Ballad Of Ricky Bobby, I Now Pronounce You Chuck And Larry, Not Another Teen Movie and The 40 Year Old Virgin) - AUD$11.60 (Added)

    A friend said The Walking Dead was a very good series, but I never got around to watching it. Worth it anyone?

      Season 1 is really good…..although only 6 shows.

      Only seen the first 2 shows of season 2 and they are pretty average.

      Obviously they only had approval for the first 6 and really this should all be season 1 so the middle is just a bit slow…..hopefully will pick up.

        I only started watching 'The walking dead' last week. I was never a fan of the Zombies and bloody guts & gore but i've always liked the whole 'Apocalypse' theme.

        It turned out to be pretty good (If you can stand a lot of gory scenes).

      •  

        Season 2 is great so far!

        •  

          Totally disagree, the plot is sooooooooooooooooooo slow and dull compared to S1.

      Worth a look. the UK version is quite heavily cut though.

    •  

      Worth watching once. Your better off buying the comic on which its based if you want to go through multiple viewings. I haven't read it yet, but the characters in the tv show are fairly 1 dimensional, you just grow to hate them and root for the zombies.

      •  

        What do you mean by multiple viewings and 1 dimensional? I don't know what is means.

        •  

          the comic has more room to explain the story and character development is much better, the action is much more drastic and gory, when you follow it you will feel for the characters. The live action has hardly any room to grow due to tight budget constraints and probably maturity rating restrictions but the potential is there.

    •  

      I'd say it's worth it. The series is certainly not without its problems, and nothing so far has lived up to the pilot episode (which is very good), however on the whole, it is a pretty good series and worth watching.

      Besides, only 9 episodes have aired so far, so it's not exactly a significant time investment ;)

    •  

      YEEEESSSS!!!!! … its basically like.. Left 4 Dead, but in real life. Ie. you don't have people running around, jumping over buildings, shooting guns like no body's business.

      it's more like, what would probably end up happening in a zombie apocalypse, also the first season was AMAZING!, each episode is about an hour, (from memory might be more/less… might be more like 45-50mins due to commercials etc)

      but it is truly a very interesting series to get into…

      yeah season 2 is a liiitttllleee slow, but it just started, and its still good tv. :)

      The Walking Dead started as a comic, the comic is still ongoing and it's one of the best zombie comics I've seen.

    You should mention shipping costs or the £25 pound spend needed for free shipping.

    The free shipping may disappear at any stage as it is still saying it expires on the 31.10.11

    expired for walking dead.. now back up to 14.99 pound :S

  •

  •  

    Well posted deal mate…. very easy to read and straight to the point with nicely summarised bargains. Well done and thanks for taking time to do it right.

  •  

    So this Walking Dead is not the one to get? Should I get the US version so its uncut?

    • +1 vote

      Yeah I wouldn't buy the UK version, out of all the genres a zombie movie/series is the least one you want censored imo.

  •  

    Ok so get the US one, thanks
