    Did any one get any of the free DVD’s that they were offering in the paper?
    I sent off for some and I have not got any yet. Saying that I think you had to allow 28 day, but still wondering if any ones got them yet and if they are in a proper box not just a cardboard sleeve.

    HI,

    Just a warning: the DVD's you will receive, will be in cardboard sleeves only, and will not have any extras on them either. Plus, some of the films may also be in 4:3 pan-and-scan. After all, they are being offered free. That's why I didn't take-up the offer, after contacting the paper direct, to find out more about the offer.

    If that’s true then why did they ask for 60p worth of stamps on a A4 envelope, surly an A5 and a 20p stamp would have sufficed. :confused:

    I sent for Enemy of the State and Good Will Hunting. The latter R2 release has no extras and the former I think only a few anyway, so I won't cry about missing extras! Anyway, for under £1.00, you'd have to be a real grumpy bastard to complain and if the extras are missing, just think of the disc as 'Superbit' (possibly without the DTS)!! 4:3 would be a downer, but then they'd make great cheap gifts!

    Got my first one last week (as above). I see no reason why the others to follow - Enemy Of The State, Face-Off, Good-Will Hunting, wont also be in the retail packaging.

    I wasn’t on the ball sending the tokens back with Face-Off but I was within the time limit, but got Enemy of the State the very same day the last token came out. So heres hoping I will get some next week.

    I got my copy of Enemy Of The State this morning bit still have not got the one I sent for before Face-Off or the one after Good Will Hunting.
    I wonder if they are having to re-order some of the titles as they did not envisage such a large demand.
