Default Current Amazon UK Deals

Here are some up-to-date Amazon UK deals. I was maintaining a thread many months ago doing the same thing. The criteria I use for this list is that the title is less expensive than US version even with shipping, the title is region free (with a few exceptions), and the title is thought to be of at least of equal quality as the US release. I also try to include popular titles or titles that have a cult following and are not available in the US. This is a preliminary list. There are some titles that are not on here because I believe most people are aware of them (ala B.O.B., Bourne Trilogy, Ocean's Trilogy, etc). Feel free to add titles in subsequent posts if they meet the above criteria.



Planet Earth (17.99 GBP/$27.47 USD) Region Free
http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B...A3P5ROKL5A1OLE

Red Dragon (6.99/$10.67) Reported Regions B+A & not available in US
http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B...A3P5ROKL5A1OLE

Moon (9.99 GBP/$15.26) Region Free
http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B...A3P5ROKL5A1OLE

Untraceable (5.99 GBP/$9.14 USD)

I don't know if this is cult, but based on the prices it seems worth putting up.

Almost Famous: 7.97 --> $11.95

(vs $36.99 on domestic amazon)

Yah that is a good price. It goes down as low as 5.99 GBP on occasion and often hits 6.99 GBP. It is worth mentioning

NP. Eastern Promises is really appealing at that price. If I had a region free player it would be a sure buy. I know there are enough people with region free players on here that I want to include at least some Region B locked titles here and there when they are really great deals likes Eastern Promises for 5.99 GBP, I will dig around (probably tomorrow) and add more titles to the list. There are a handful of region free HK titles that aren't available in the US. I will probably add those next.

Big Update. Fast & Furious 1-4 Boxset for 17.99 GBP
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Fast-Furious...0697431&sr=8-1

You'll probably have to be quick on this one. I'm not even adding it to the list unless it's still 17.99 GBP tomorrow. The Dirty Harry Collection went down to 15.99 GBP but I don't even think that lasted 12 hours

Almost Famous 5.99 GBP! It hasn't been that low in awhile.
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Almost-Famou...0803012&sr=8-1

FF 1-4 box is still 17.99 GBP but this is the first time I have seen it anywhere near that so I will believe it will be in that price range long term when I see it.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Night-Watch-...?ie=UTF8&s=dvd

Does anyone know if there is a list available online that lists Region Free Blu-rays that are not available in the US yet? I have Almost Famous in my cart right now but I would like to grab some more if I can. Red Dragon appears to be Region 2 only. I wish my PS3 was Region Free.

You can check region codes here:

But of course they don't have red dragon but being universal I doubt they locked it. But better safe than sorry. Hopefully somebody else will tell you for sure.

EDIT
I did a Google search and some did report that it was region free. But all this is second or third hand.
