    I want to buy some new dvd films as i have not brought any for ages last film i brought was mabe back to the future. I like horror,action,thrillers dont mind comedy.

    I was thinking of gettign these films

    Spiderman box set
    Goldmember
    Lilo and sticth
    the fog
    dagon
    Dog soldiers
    Ice age
    Haloween Reserection

    Are these films any good in your opion, (i have seen ice age, goldmember and spiderman at the cinema) i would also like to know what region you recomend me to buy it on.

    I wont buy all these in one go because have not got too much money to spend lately i might spend £100 at xmas on dvd films what films are coeming out that you recomend and what are out at the miniute that are good. I like buying films on dvd before comeing out on cinema because you get into the film more i find

    I loved Spider-Man and Ice Age :)

    I'd say you should only get the Spider-Man box set if you really want all the extras and are a big fan. Otherwise, the 2 disk is more than enough for most (certainly enough for me - it's jam packed with extras) :)

    I loved Spiderman, the fog and Dog soldiers

    while i liked Dagon (very dark Euro cult horror, quite nasty and unpleasant, very gory, lovely ladies in it as well)

    the fog
    -Classic. I haven't seen it in a long time, but if you can get a good deal on it, it's a good bet.

    Dagon
    -Very cool movie. Bought it sight-unseen due to the guys who made it, and was pleasantly surprised.

    Haloween Reserection
    -Considering how bad Halloween: H2O was, I'd rather meet up with Mr. Myers himself than sit through this one.

    If you like action and thrillers, allow me to mention a few that I think are absolutely brilliant:
    Memento
    Donnie Darko
    Fight Club
    Usual Suspects

    Is goldmember same on region 2 as it is on region 1 i dont normally buy region 2 but seeing as its £14 downtown i might get it if its the same. I have a sony 900 dvd player i noticed someone said that they have spiderman region 2 and it kept going blocky on a certain chapter if this is the case i think i will buy spiderman on region 1

    By the way i brought Liverpool FC No heart as big on dvd from safeway it cost me £14 but its not what i thought it would i thought it would be documentry and show you the dressing room team talk and stuff but its total rubbish.

    What are the chances of me takeing it to safeway and changeing it for soemthing else and i would pay the price diffrence

    I have the R4 and a Sony DVD player - no problems at all. Great transfer actually.

    Try! It can't hurt! Tell them it's not what it's advertised as.

    Yes, always good to buy the films that have dts and ignore the ones that don't.

    Where's my share of the refund you got? :mad: You wouldn't have even gotten a refund if it weren't for me! :mad: :D

    Spiderman, nice film, but I went for the R4 as it was only 14.99
    but if u are a colelctor, sure
    goldmember, haven't seen it but is on order
    lilo and stitch and Ice age are both brilliant
    I was disappointed by Dog soldiers thought that 28days later was much better
    haven't seen the others. HTH

    Sorry Squairal :blush: hope i can help you one day.
    I am just watching goldmember now and i find it more funny now than when i was watching it at the cinema.

    I find that i am not impressed with 5.1 as the first time i was when i first heard it :( I have to get Lilo and Stitch because nices and nephew are staying with us over xmas and hopefully will keep them quiet :)
