Bargains wishlist

Hi - just wondering if its worth us having a bargains wishlist thread, where we can browse/post common items that we all want to get our hands on (*** BUT only at a reasonable price ***) and can post price updates when anything is going for a song?

Obviously this is the main theme of the whole forum, but such a thread could be useful for popular items. It might also remind us of items we want but have forgotten about.

For example below I've copied my current wishlist (mainly my www.find-dvd.co.uk bookmarks) of items, including pre-releases that I don't want to purchase until they're at a great price
- which I'd like to be £20 max for boxsets, and around a tenner or less for the others. Items recently removed, as I've purchased them, include Operation Good Guys, Curb Your Enthusiasm Season 4, and Early Doors Series 1.

I know its wishful thinking as regards Dr Who and perhaps many of these titles, but that's why its a "wishlist" :D

"dead man's shoes" got very good reviews and it should definitely be worth £7.99 (BlahDVD) or a little bit less if you collect rpoints...
i use the "DVD Price Watch" option at find-dvd.co.uk - you can create your own list, set a target price and see the current cheapest price. sounds pretty good (and is definitely useful for dvd-junkies like me). am not sure though if you're notified by email if a price falls below the target price you set.

yep, they sent me an email informing me that critters 1-4 had dropped to 9.99 with a click here on the mailbe directed to shop.

I was 2 days late reading email and price had, by then, gone up.

An excellent service, however, I have also price checked separately on sites advertising 1 price at DVD watch to find a £1 price drop. Assumed it hadn't filtered through to them at the time.

Dead mans shoes is one of the most intelligent and best british (ney, worldwide) films ever made.
:eek: :clap: :smashin:

Pisses all over American crap like Crash, which insults the viewers intelligence and try to much to be intelligent, while forcing an unlikely plot with obvious contrived paths. What a bore :boring:
