Hi all, as the tag says, best price for this great film?
Is there a special 2 disc version?
From the sites, it will be a 2-disc SE version, should be very much the same as the R1 version, apart from preliminary reports that R2 will also include DTS track.
www.cd-wow.com 14.99 (http://www.find-dvd.co.uk/d888895.htm) but using the system, you can get 2.50 off = 12.50
www.splashdvd.com 13.99 but big issues with delivery as you might have noticed, I wouldn't go for the at the moment.
www.dvd.co.uk 14.99, a good site regarding delivery.

If you don't mind committing to 3 titles per year then channel.com have it in their introductory offer for £7.99 delivered.
The DVD release date over here is just SUCH A BIG disaster.
The US version has been out for ages and you could have got yourself a region free version from the asian continent months and months ago. And I'm not talking about dodgy quality ones, I'm talking DVD quality with DTS sound, etc. just a bit lacking in the extra's department.
Come on now,who has NOT got a copy of this film already
Ebay Has been absolutely packed to the seams with copies of this film - many advertised as region 1's, but are actually region zero. Punters were probably not even aware they were buying region zero DVD's. THEY ARE THAT GOOD. !!!! And how would they know anyway ?
And I don't buy copies, no matter how good they are!
That's good for you.
These are copies in the same way the originals you are buying in the shops have been copies of master's somewhere.
I dread to think what would happen if people started to buy less original DVD's. How about using the internet/mp3 impact on CD buying . Look at what's happenned to the prices. And don't forget MP3 quality is NOT identical to CD Audio Quality as most of these DVD's are bit for bit identical ! No loss.
Personally, I think DVD's are VASTLY overpriced, but thank god for very special offers that pop up from time to time.
Yes, anyone can get a copy, just like anyone can cheat on their home insurance, its really not that clever. Personally, I would rather buy an original of a film or band I love.
Plus you get all the pucker extras.
I remeber when DVD's were £25 each and no extras!, nowadays most come down to a tenner which is reasonable
Well, seeing as this thread has gone off topic in a big way anyway...
Wasabi, you mentioned a DTS track, which is what I was hoping for also as they put one on Monters Inc - but I noticed that Home Cinema Choice have published a review of the R2 disk but not mentioned a DTS at all - they have just comented on the DD soundtrack.
If it turns out that it does have DTS, a cynical person might think that the magazine just reviewed a R1 copy and pretended it was R2.
I just took it from dvdcompare - http://www.dvdcompare.net/comparisons/film_results_page.php?fid=4393
But are you sure that it doesn't have DTS? If you go to homecinemachoice and search on region2 news, and search on finding nemo, from 21st Jan 2004, it says it will have DTS, or you can find it here - http://www.totaldvd.net/news/ - scroll to the bottom.
I'm also concerned about dts on the R2 UK release, as despite the BVE announcement, I am unable to find a web site selling the R2 release, specifying dts.
That's my point entirely - if Home Cinema Choice state on their website that it does have DTS, why does their review of it only talk about DD and not mention DTS ?
Try here, Disney Store
It states: Dolby 5.1 DTS THX
I got the SE 2 disc'er from CD Wow awhile back now. It's the R2/4 encoded release which has the DTS soundtrack on it as well.
I can't see why the R2 only would be any different in anyway to this release.
Oh and I paid £13.49 with discounts for it.
HMV are doing a good deal at the moment, you can pre-order Finding Nemo and Toy Story for under £22, I dont have Toy Story and this seems like a good deal to me, puts them in at about £11 each.
Why so worked up about whether or not it's got DTS?
In the VAST majority of cases the DTS mix is no better than DD. It's usually a couple of decibals louder which makes you think it's better. Turn up DD a bit and there's no difference..
Seems dvd.co.uk saw the offer HMV are doing and have beat it so you can get Finding Nemo and Toy Story for £20.98
