That’s right I managed to get myself the 4K Steelbook limited edition for the Lord of the Rings trilogy. This was a little bit of a nightmare when Zavvi put them on sale at midnight of all times so by the time I actually saw the pre-sale email they had sold out. But then over to HMV who still had some available. The release date being Monday 30th November 2020. They arrived (eventually) yesterday after Royal Mail kept teasing me as I originally had an email saying they would be with me on Monday by 3pm!
Anyway they are quite frankly the most beautiful steelbooks or even any DVD/Blu-Ray covers that I have ever seen! You get both the extended editions and theatrical cuts for each film, although the extended editions are still over two discs (only downside). I was lucky enough to see these films at the cinema (twice) in the summer in the 4K and extended on the big screen. Cannot wait to watch them all again and again in 4K format, simply stunning!

I was so amazed when I saw a tweet about this incredible new range of 12 films from HMV that are in a VHS still box and case but it is actually a Blu-ray and DVD copy of the film along with other typical 80s gifts! I seriously love anything like this when they release something a little bit different and new. I am sure these will be very popular and quickly sell out.
Check them out on the website here!
If they are popular maybe we will get some 90s films as well?
Today marks the release of 100 Streets on DVD in the UK and to celebrate I have a DVD to give away to one lucky person who is based in the UK.
Idris Elba and Gemma Arterton star in ‘A Hundred Streets’, a layered and gripping drama, which takes a fresh look at the vibrant and compelling life of residents in contemporary London – destination capital of the world. Emmy and Golden Globe nominated Jim O’Hanlon directs.

Yesterday saw the release of ‘Remember Me’ which I really enjoyed at the cinema. It actually helped show that Robert Pattinson can indeeed act as well which was a bonus. I headed to HMV to buy the DVD (it is very rare that I buy a DVD on release date now). But when I was standing looking at it, the Blu Ray version was only £5 more than the normal DVD, with the Blu Ray containing a normal DVD as well. So I went ahead and bought my first Blu Ray DVD – now all I need is a Blu Ray player . . .
Well this will probably suprise you but I am still not part of the blu-ray revolution! Yes I know that really is bad isnt it! But I do need a new TV in my room before I can go for the blu-ray dvd player etc. I think I have now waited long enough and must join a better viewing world in terms of film at home. Sky HD on the TV in the living room, but upstairs an old TV with normal pictures . . . yes it really is time to go HD and blu-ray I reckon!
I have been looking at that Samsung player from HMV as you get 6 blu-ray dvd’s with it for only £149.99 which seems like a great deal to me. Unless anyone can point me in the direction of a better deal?
So should I take the plunge and go blu-ray???
Yes that’s right pure HMV . . . a card which you use every time in store or online to collect points. But what can you buy with these points I hear you ask. Well you can buy things that money can’t buy you (well it probably could but not from HMV itself).
I have had my card for a few weeks now and just wish i’d had it for a long time now as I would have quite a lot of points built up. Today I went into HMV and came out with one DVD (yes I did say I was not going to buy any more DVDs until I watch the ones I already have, but I found a loop hole that I have already seen the film I bought, that being Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind). I also bought two books Up in the Air (because I loved the film so much) and Love Letters of Great Men and Women . . . because it said inspired by Sex and the City on the front. Yes I am way too obsessed with SATC, but hey it might regain my belief in love. Or it will make me resent it even more time will tell I guess.

For quite a few years now I have had problems buying DVDs of films which I have never seen before. These films may have one of my favorite actors in, won a lot of awards (mainly Oscar’s), I had heard a lot about the film or I missed it at the cinema. This is made more difficult when HMV, Asda and play.com all start selling DVDs for £2 or £3.
This morning I decided to have a look and see how many of my DVDs that I have not ever watched . . . just the ones that I have never seen the film either. I have 30 of these DVDs and my plan is to watch them over the next few months. I probably have tried to watch a couple of them before but other than that they are films that I have never got round to seeing.
I have decided that I am not going to buy any more DVDs of the films I have not yet seen until I start watching some of these which are just sitting around. That may encourage me to watch these a little faster.
Here is the 30 long list of films I plan on watching over the next few months . . . or maybe longer I am not going to put a timescale on it but they are now top of my to see list. Why not? I have them ready to watch whenever I want.
