Now Is The Time To Go On A Bit of A Blu-Ray Shopping Spree

There are a good handful of Blu-ray deals happening at once right now, and I’d like to flag a few up at once.

Let’s start with The Prisoner, one of my favourite TV shows of all time. Definitely the most surreal spy drama of the 60s, beating out even The Avengers (not that Avengers), it’s actually a great satire on genre and national identity. The first and last episodes are two of the best episodes of anything I’ve ever seen.

A ‘Region A’ locked box of the whole run and supplements is going for $29.99, down from $99.99. If you are ‘Region A’ friendly, leap on this. The episodes come on 4 Blu-rays beautifully mastered from the original film elements and the fifth disc is a DVD with some cracking documentary stuff on it.

The 70th anniversary edition of Gone With the Wind is a bargain-priced $7.99 right now. It’s region free, it’s handsome and has a good commentary by Rudy Behlmer, the film historian.

Cheaper still is Sucker Punch at only $3.99. Now, this has proven to be a divisive film, but I’m firmly on the ‘pro’ side. For less than a $5 note, maybe plenty more will give it a punt – some of them will hate it, some of them will love it. Region free.

Kubrick’s 2001, A Clockwork Orange and The Shining are available as a three-disc set for just $9.99 right now. The perfect primer kit for somebody just getting into their new, giant HD set, maybe? Also region free.

If you’re needing to get in at the ground floor of some recent, much loved TV, you can get the first seasons of both Breaking Bad and Jusified at $11.99 a pop. I ordered Justified myself.

And if you’ve already started on your way up, the second season of Breaking Bad is currently the same price too. And the third. And the fourth.

And, lo and behold, here’s the second season of Justified at $11.99 too. I’m glad I kept searching, because I think I’ve just netted myself some bargains.

Unless, of course, it turns out I hate Justified. I won’t, though, will I? I’ve been wanting to sink into it for a while.

Note: those Justified and Breaking Bad sets are locked to Region A.

The full-on release of Titanic includes a Blu-ray, a Blu-ray 3D and a digital copy and normally costs $54.99. Now, though, it’s way down at just $14.99. The best 3D conversion to date, a fantastically well-mastered Blu-ray and some fascinating supplements – and, anyway, you know by now if you like Titanic, surely? This set, incidentally, is Region A locked.

There are a lot of price drops coming this week – seems to be the new tradition, that Black Friday starts days ahead of Black Friday. I’ll keep my eyes peeled and try to get the best of them here on the site.
