I've just looked at my movie spend in the last 12 months. It's over £550.
I'm pretty gobsmacked
I'd rather not add it all up
I'm gobsmacked too, do you hate films or just have an aversion to buying them?
Yes that's lightweight. I must have spent that much on blus in Poundland alone.
Poundlands blu ray sales through the roof.......
"I don't know where I'm gonna put 'em" - said an onlooker, called Brian.
Yep that's my storage unit parked close by just off Sunderland.
I decided I didn't need to know how much my 247 blu’s/UHDs purchased in the last 12 months cost me......
......a little bit of my soul?
......another year off my retirement?
......the constart eye rolling and tutting of the wife?
Or all of the above.......?
And you still need to buy a 4K projector/screen.
Same here,best not to no
Are we allowed to football this and take into account what we sold too?
Because I'm in profit if so.
I spent enough to need plausible deniability in the .05% chance my wife cracks my iPad password and reads this.
Anyway, it’s not what I spent it’s what I got for my money.
Here’s looking at you Arrow Edition Carrie/The Thing/Close Encounters 40th/Nolan boxset etc etc etc
How many does £550 get you from Poundland?
Less than you'd think on occasion. I have seen them going for a fiver there.
Surely that's false advertising! Daily Mail here you come!!!!
They sell loads of stuff at more than a quid. To be fair the only time I saw the blus at a fiver was years ago. They were Disney titles but you also had to buy something else for a quid to get one of them.
Only 247?! Im surprised Coz. And disappointed too.
A whole load of crap?
Sorry Jim. I'll pop into HMV tomorrow (not just because its payday...…) and rectify my slackness immediately...…...
Check the Poundland too.
I've just looked at 2018, not the last 12 months; but since January I've spent about $850-$900 on movies and TV. I... Don't know if I like that or not...
Wait. I've also gone to the theatre about 20 times this year too. I guess that's another $250-$300...
As Thanos once said, Everything. I also go to the cinema 2-3 times a week.
I stopped going to the cinema on a regular basis a very long time ago. So many of the other folk who go don't give a damn about the rest of the audience. My last visit was for the Fantastic Four reboot. The experience was so bad that I can't see myself ever going back. Home presentation only from now on.
Uhd has cost me a fair bit in the last year, I do flog the older Blu’s to get some money back. I’ll admit, I do fall into the bargain trap, eg, Sicario UHD for HMV members £9.99, sold the older Blu for £6 so to me it’s really a bargain not to be missed.
While I wish prices would come down, it’s still good value. Sicario 2 is costing me just under £12 today at the cinema, and for a few quid more I could wait 4 months for the UHD to enjoy over and over with possibly better PQ/AQ at home.
I wouldn’t let it get to you, if you enjoy each watching film it’s a small price, if your spending a fortune, stock piling and never watching, that’s a different story (although I think many of us probably suffer from that a bit too).
I also bought the Sicario 4K for £9.99. I know nothing about it and it's now in my unwatched pile. I even bought the Star Trek Into Darkness 4K because it was only £5.91. Like another watch in better quality is going to improve it.
I hope you enjoy Sicario 2.
You’ve invested enough to get annual dividends.
If you hadn’t spent on blus, you could have bought one of David Beckham’s mansions instead.
Indeed. I get the princely sum of £1.00 a year from them. Guess where I spend it.
They’re thinking about re-naming the store “Brian S Land” in tribute of their best customer.
I've spent about £50 in the last year, £30 on DVD's 10 DVDs secondhand at £3 each from eBay and £20 on NOW TV movie pass 2 months at £10 per month and I cancelled it because I only watched 1 film (John Wick 2), but I enjoyed the film.
I'm afraid you might have just created an outlier compared to the rest of our dataset here
