Sorry A, this is an in-store only offer, I've never seen people bundled up with so many dvds (including myself). It's amazing though, as with most sales the majority of items are the rubbish that nobody normally buys, I didn't think I'd see anything good but by the time I'd gone from a-k I had around 15 dvds. Unfortunately I couldn't afford to get everything I wanted but so far I've bought around 20.

I won't be getting any more unless other items are added to the sale but it's been brilliant to replace a hell of a lot of stuff that I had on video and to build up with other films.

I managed to pick up 5 of Tartan's Bergman dvds among others.

Cheers Trev.

Hehehe, my oh my Lucky they didn't have me as a customer, since my bankaccount would have probably been closed, and my creditcard confiscated afterwards.
Glad you enjoyed it.
