    I havnt participated in this thread before as im generally in the mindset of moving dvds/movies as opposed to gaining more so i usually donate unwanted movies to charity shops and im all about 4K now though its a passion i cant generally afford !

    However i was in Cambridge town yesterday and dropped in to CEX
    CeX (UK) Buy & Sell Games, Phones, DVDs, Blu-ray, Electronics, Computing, Vision & CDs (webuy.com)

    A couple of recent finds.

    The Magnificent Seven was part of a 4 for £1 mix'n'match CD/DVDs, and Passport To Pimlico was £1. I also saw a Logan's Run DVD, but it turned out to be a Region 1 disc.

    If you have a windows computer you can temporarily change the region setting to watch any disc

    At least you could on win 7 not sure about other versions. They only allow you to do it a very generous half a dozen or so times though.

    Thanks, I have Windows 10, so maybe I could. I might look for a cheap copy on ebay as I've never watched Logan's Run.

    I was working in a factory in the early 80s, and one of my co-workers was a young woman, early 20s, who I once heard say that she thought people over the age of 30 having sex was disgusting. Not long after that she went to work at HM Prison Sudbury. Weird.

    I wonder how many female prison officers there were in the early 80s, because Sudbury is a male open prison.
     
  12. She'd be in her early 60s now. Maybe she hasn't had sex for over 30 years.

    I'm not saying she was a prison officer; for all I know she might have worked in the kitchen or something else. I've no idea what civilian jobs there are at prisons.

    ABBA - Gold
    Bee Gees - One Night Only/The Official Story Of… (2DVD “Collectors Edition”)
    Carpenters - Gold
    Legend: The Best Of Bob Marley & The Wailers
    Bob Marley - The Legend Live

    and a Blu-ray of the Clint Eastwood directed “Jersey Boys”

    I've been looking for a cheap season 8 for about 6 months. Most people hated the season that much they never bought it in the first place so it's way hard to find secondhand. $2
