Wow MacVee! To quote from a Woody Allen film: “What the hell am I doing here???”
I am not worthy! Here’s my humble 2 from 71:

Heard good things about Get Carter (also heard there is a version with Americanised or should that be Americanized dubbing). Might give it a watch sooner rather than later. Caught the tail end of 10 Rillington Place when it was on TV a few years and so could do with seeing the full thing. Enjoy...

Another case of ‘melon’ instead of ‘marrow’?( Wallace and Gromit:The Curse of the Were-rabbit), yes I’ve heard that too.Both Get Carter US versions to be avoided;this and defo the Sly remake!

Not a blu ray but it will be played in the home cinema. And I figured you fellows of a similar age would appreciate it...

Came home from work to find this present from the wife:

You can buy a HDMI Modified Sega Dreamcast (DCHDMI) for £229.99 I have often wondered if it would be a mistake to get one or worth it and theres a junk shop near me that sells all the old console games. I do love all the retro stuff.

Took a helluva long time to come back into stock at Amazon but definitely worth the wait for £4:

Thought I was good for at least a week,then I discover an old favourite has made it on to Blu ;albeit from somewhat dated elements.
And the other one,which had passed me by,appeared on ‘telly’ recently.Caught enough of it to decide it’s worth a punt @ £7.59.

Bit of a backlog:

All my Hive.co.uk £8.85 Indicators:


Only seen a couple of those but really looking forward to that The System -Michael Winner made a good film by mistake?



Us Peele's best film so far.

24x36 -very well done documentary about US posters

The Bounty -never seen this version of the film has to be worth a look and it's got a load of cool extras

Apocalypse Now -UHD Steelbook. A bit of a messy release IMO. Got the Steelbook sent in error but I'll keep it and will be making a home brew UHD case and split the discs

The Intruder -Roger Corman's masterpiece. Barely gets a mention. That's the brilliant France Blu-ray.

The Green Prince -pretty devastating documentary

F for Fake -bit of Welles

The Tenant -great Polanski film (that's the Australia Blu-ray with a chopped up US cover as the artwork was so bad)



Tresspass -Walter Hill for £3.99? I'm in :D

The Incident -very impressive film which I had a vague memory about.

Atoll K -damn depressing film, bought it for the extras.

Raw Deal -quite enjoyed that. Great cast.

The Killing FIelds -no classic but still a good watch (I've added the old DVD to that as it has the lengthy BBC documentary about the film).

Hellboy 2 -only watched Hellboy a week ago and loved it and I bought this for the massive documentary which is missing from the UHD (on my to buy list). Not keen on the remake but I might give it a look.

The Chain Reaction -not classic Oz cinema but still very good and has a lorry load of extras.

Bloodsport -cool film bit of a mini classic I reckon. Nice release from Germany.

Hammett -Wim Wenders's film. It's a bit of a forgotten film from Coppola's never ending era of money problems. A really nice Blu-ray release -and legit- from Spain.

Mostly tat:


Kinetta -brilliant Lanthimos.

Oh noooo!....Please!......& in red Amarays....I might cave in & get these: The transfers had better be carp or I may not be able to resist!
Yep there's a reason or two I went for these over the boxset. Should that be scarlet Amarays? You might find out soon as I'm considering doing a review.

“Few”!!! :rotfl:
Definitely feeling out of my league here,is there a beginner’s thread?:blush::D
Beginner's thread? This is the beginner's thread! :laugh:

Tbf that "few" is from the last month so not that many really... having said that if I weren't getting hooked on waiting for many of these inevitable deals/price drops then there would have been a "few" more! :D

My policy too.But I find that while we’re waiting I’m hunting around for other things and in the end the ‘damage’ is increased!:rolleyes:

Clearly a drunken impulse buy. As it’s not something I would’ve ordered otherwise (and didn’t know I had til I got the dispatch email!)

Ah well...
