Yeah I notice that's the only one I have ordered that hasn't been despatched yet!
Maybe the same as what happened to me
Just got my dispatch notification and The Hidden was one I ordered but not in the batch of 5 that being sent, and the funny thing is an other that was temporary out of stock been sent.
Looking on there site still has The Hidden in stock. :confused:
Just got an other email from HMV as they say the other shoe dropped but in this case The Hidden been posted.

HMV website says 'back in stock soon'. Love The Hidden. A massively underrated sci-fi horror (1987). Only £10 on HMV. £18 on Amazon & eBay.

Mine was in stock when I ordered it and Satanic Rites of Dracula was out of stock yet not long after Satanic Rites of Dracula and 4 others were sent and 2 hours later The Hidden was sent.
And its only £7.50 if bought with an other in the 2 for £15, even if you bought 2 the same comes in at £3 under Amazon.

Indeed. Amazon is no longer cheapest, so its best to compare between Amazon, eBay and HMV when buying anything. I've looked into buying Near Dark on blu ray, but unfortunately it costs a fortune on all the websites I've looked at. Never mind Near Dark, near £40 more like. :eek:

I'd wait on Near Dark anyway. Chances are it will get a 4K release maybe. I'm like this on quite a few older blu-ray releases now....bit wary in case a 4K is round the corner. And yeah...Amazon aren't really trying these days it seems - I buy more elsewhere.

The Hidden is basically what aliens would really do if they came to earth - drink, do drugs, inhabit the bodies of hot women and bomb around LA in sports cars. listening to music really loud......... :smoke:
I only first saw this a few months back and the intro sequence is basically what a film character would do if you removed all plot/motivation and had them directly controlled by someone playing GTA trying to max their wanted level.

Sorry Jim, I don't own a 4K player. Can't afford one with the despensible income I earn. :blush:

Went in today and picked up Top Gun (Atmos) and Clash of the Titans.

Top Gun sounds great.

Looks like HMV are releasing all of the Paramount Presents releases over here under their Premium Collection lable which is nice as I initially thought these were only going to be US releases.

I went into Fopp Covent Garden this evening and came out with Full Metal jacket and Wolfen. Both are in the 2 for £15 promotion. They also had John Landis' Innocent Blood in the premium collection with a sticker on it saying, "first time on Blu-ray". I'm not sure why that is, because I've owned Innocent Blood on Blu-ray for quite some time after I imported from the States.

Presumably it means the first time in the UK.

Dang....didn't think they'd release The Two Jakes that fast. I got it from Wow for less than £8 anyway.

Waiting for Trading Places 4K. I've got the old US region-free disc.

I have just noticed that Amazon has up for pre-order a new release of Forbidden Planet.

Amazon product
It seems to include, as far as I tell, the same extras as the Premium Collection release. Is this the same disc in a new cover as HMV have lost their exclusivity to this title, or is it a remaster or is there anything different to the Premium Collection version?

Cheers
