    Hey guys,
    Not too many bargains around at the moment so I thought I'd throw up what I've ordered for relatively cheap.

    Strange Days
    The Replacements
    Very Bad Things
    The Apartment

    All 7.98 with the iFidelity Card.

    Post any good finds!
    ;)

    Dark City is £5.68 here:

    http://www.looking4dvds.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=657

    or £5.87 from selectdvds

    or £5.99 from sendit & dvd.co.uk

    These are all the R2 original edition which has as extras:
    "The Making of" Featurette (5 mins)
    Trailer (2 mins)
    and a running time of 97 mins

    Whats the difference between this and the 'Platinum Edition'?

    Regards,
    Valentino

    The R1 release is far, far better than the R2 one. The Ebert commentary is supposed to be excellent.

    Dark City = A good story that was later to be used again with a shed load of CGi and bullet time photography to make a load of pap.

    Except for the bits with Monica Bellucci (hubba :devil: hubba :devil: hubba).

    The UK R2 version is non-anamorphic and has DD2.0 sound instead of the 5.1 the R1 dvd has and the UK R2 doesn't have a commentary track (R1 has two commentary tracks!) according to dvdcompare.net.

    I don't agree with their policy of giving DTS sound more credit than DD5.1 and a extra commentary track (French R2 vs R1) though.

    A lot of postage relative to the price. With surface mail postage it's $9 total or £4.75 and that's more than dvdsoon's shipping price. Not to mention the ifidelity member price of £3.42.

    If you're talking about dvdpacific, then yes.
