Sci-Fi Bargains Of The Week

Another week has gone by. It’s been seven days, which is 138 hours or 10080 minutes since last we told you of all the cheap sci-fi goodies which are just a click or a short journey away. But fear not. It’s Friday again and so it’s time for another SFX bargains. Fill yer boots…

First on the list this week is Luc Besson’s wonderfully bat’s arse The Fifth Element on Blu-ray for £9.49 and also available on DVD for a bargaintastic £5.14 too.

Next we have the excellent sci-fi noir Spielberg/Cruise movie adaptation of Philip K Dick’s Minority Report . Again the film is available on both Blu-ray and on a 2-Disc Special Edition DVD . The Blu-ray is £7.99 and the DVD will cost you just £4.97 .

Web slinging fun next with Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy. You can get all three films on Blu-ray for £14.99 or on DVD for £9.99 . That should keep you going until The Amazing Spider-Man shows up in July.

More superheroes next with a Fantastic Four two-film set on Blu-ray for £9.99 .

With Messers Smith and Jones returning to their iconic black suits in a couple of months it might be time to reacquaint your self with their past shenanigans. Men In Black can be yours on DVD for £7.99 and the imaginatively-titled sequel, Men In Black 2 also available for £6.19 .

To TV land next with Matt Smith’s first series as Doctor Who . You can pick up the Series Five box set on DVD from Amazon for £22.99 . Fish custard anyone?

Staying in TV land, how about an animated blast from the past? 80s cartoon Dungeons And Dragon is available on DVD. The box set can be yours for £5.99 , again from Amazon.

Fans of the Terminator films might be interested in this animated series following some of the minor characters from Terminator: Salvation . The Machinima Series is available on DVD for £4.35 .

We have a couple of general offers for you next. Play have a Two Blu-rays for £10 offer on including such title as Mimic, Flash Gordon and Time Bandits . Play also has a Two DVDs for £5 offer as well with titles including The Crow, Splinter and Salute Of The Jugger . Zavvi also has a Blu-ray offer on this week: Three Blu-rays for £18 ; they’re mostly naff titles but with the likes of Tremors and Godzilla amongst others, there might be something in there for some people.

Asda this week had a good selection of low priced entertainment; in the DVD aisle we spotted Hancock, District 9, Legion and Terminator: Salvation all for just £3 each. We also saw Percy Jackson And The Lightening Thief for £4 . Asda has a promotion on Disney DVDs and Blu-rays. DVDs are two for £15 and Blu-ray are two for £20 . Included in the offer are such films as Wall-E, Pirates Of The Caribbean , The Incredibles and Monsters, Inc as well as the regular Disney titles we all know and love. Although Amazon can go one better as it also has Disney offers on at the moment including the same titles and Amazon is offering cheaper Two Blu-rays for £16 and Two DVDs for £13.99 deals.

Among the other Blu-rays on the shelves in Asda were Twelve Monkeys and The Big Lebowski for £7 each; Wanted for £5 ; Devil for £6 ; Paul for £8; and Red Riding Hood for £10 . The latest Twilight release – Breaking Dawn Part 1 – is only £10 on DVD and £12 on Blu-ray and we spotted the previous Twilight films on DVD for £3 each and on Blu-ray for £7 .

Morrison’s had a selection of DVDs at £5 each. We spotted Attack The Block, Source Code, Sucker Punch and The Dark Knight . They also have a range of Blu-rays also at £5 each, including Super, V For Vendetta and Mortal Kombat .

From the forum this week Sliverfox67 had several things for us. First he sent us news of the BBC’s Merlin Series Two on DVD from Play for £9.99 . He also told us about Akira on Blu-ray £8.01 .

Mr Fox then spotted Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes on DVD for £7.99 and on Blu-ray for £11.99 . This lead us to finding this excellent box set including all seven Planet Of The Apes films on DVD for £22.99 and on Blu-ray for a reasonable £30.99 .

Other tipsters from the forum include Happy Hangman , who saw The Frankenstein Experiment, SWAT, The Bourne Identity and Mandelay in his local Poundland stores – that’ll be a pound each then we reckon.

Finally Breyah found The 10th Kingdom on DVD from Play for £6.99 , there’s also an extended version available from Amazon for £11.99 .

Random item of the week this week isn’t exactly a bargain, but wanting to seem like we’re all hip and down with the kids we thought we’d point you in the direction of Red Bubble’s selection of Mass Effect Tee shirts. Prices start from around £16 .

As always, if you find anything we’ve brought you this week cheaper somewhere else please mention it in the comments section below. We want as many bargains ideas for our readers as we can get. And remember; if anyone out there spots a sci-fi bargain they want to share then please pop over to the forum and mention it in the relevant thread.
