Item of the day: The Hateful Eight steelbook bluray from HMV

We missed The Hateful Eight in cinemas (boo - another perk of parenthood!) and I can't wait to catch it on DVD. When you know a film is a good 'un, you've gotta go for a steelbook bluray. This bad boy is an HMV exclusive and you're gonna want to pre-order it. It's due for… Continue reading Item of the day: The Hateful Eight steelbook bluray from HMV

My Christmas list

Last week I shared Jenson's Christmas list and this week I'm sharing my growing list/Pinterest board. My birthday is two months away and Luke, the lovely boyfriend that he is, has already started shopping, so I'm not being that much of an eager beaver by putting together a Pinterest list of favourites for friends and… Continue reading My Christmas list

Item of the day: Guardians of the Galaxy steelbook bluray from Zavvi

I don't buy a lot of DVDs these days (I used to be quite addicted - we have about 1,000) but when I do I'm all about the steelbook blurays. And why wouldn't I be? They're a bit special and totally appeal to the film geek in me. My new faves at the mo are… Continue reading Item of the day: Guardians of the Galaxy steelbook bluray from Zavvi

Don't worry, I plan on rectifying this before the release of JJ Abrams' flick and this steelbook bluray collection from HMV has definitely caught my… Continue reading Item of the day: Star Wars steelbook blurays from HMV

Coming soon to DVD: Sunshine and Brazil steelbook

Ahhh! More pretty steelbooks! Up next (released on Monday) are Danny Boyle's Sunshine and Terry Gilliam's Brazil. I have to admit, I haven't seen Sunshine since I saw it in the cinema. I remember being completely blown away by it and a bit freaked out by the ending. It definitely needs a re-watch. And Brazil… Continue reading Coming soon to DVD: Sunshine and Brazil steelbook

Coming soon to DVD: About Time and Leon

Two great blurays are released on Monday - About Time and Leon. Leon is a modern classic which I saw for the first time a couple of years ago and instantly loved, so this 20th anniversary steelbook is a must-have. And About Time is one of my cinematic highlights of last year. Sure, I didn't… Continue reading Coming soon to DVD: About Time and Leon
