It’s Friday, it’s the SFX website and that means it’s sci-fi bargains time. We’ve had a good rummage round the internet; let’s see if there’s anything we can tempt you with in our random selection this week…
First off Play’s Blu-Ray 2 for £15 is still running and includes a fair number of sci-fi films, so head over there to see what bargains you can find.
Finally from the HMV sale for this week we have the coma/time travel/mad ’70s show with series one of Life on Mars . You can see the beginnings of the legend that is Gene Hunt for just £10.99 .
Classic ’80s horror in the form of David Cronenberg’s body horror remake of The Fly on Blu-ray for £4.99 from Play.
Logan and all his mutant pals have fun in the past with X Men Origins: Wolverine , yours on DVD for just £2.99 , again from Play.
If anyone fancies seeing Billy Zane in a purple leotard, how about The Phantom on DVD from Play for just £2.99 ? Or how about getting an eyeful of David Bowie’s scarily huge cod piece; Labyrinth can be yours for £4.29 . Also available from Amazon on Blu-ray for £6.49 if you feel you need the cod piece in HD.
A quick stroll round our local Asda revealed a buff Jake Gyllenhaal in Prince of Persia , the ever so fluffy Despicable Me , and Seth Grogan in The Green Hornet, all on DVD for £5 .
