I had a look yesterday, that is one mighty offload, but nothing really grabbed my interest. I hope whoever traded all that in isn't in financial trouble.

There are not many better feelings than hearing the CeX staff say "Actually this one's priced incorrectly, it's coming up as cheaper"

This feels like a bargain at £8 and has been near the top of my watchlist for ages:

Or could just be a bereavement and the family want a simple option for quick cash without giving everything to a charity shop? CEX give you peanuts (some only 10-20p - though not the case for everything as some will be more in CEX than their new value), but peanuts is more than nothing especially when a lot of discs don’t move on Facebook Marketplace (unless it’s something rarer or you’re in some groups), and with eBay once you sink £3 into postage and a percentage of the sale into fees, you’re not exactly left with much anyway.

I also picked up a copy in CEX back in 2018 or so, though think it was closer to £12, this at least includes The Little Match Girl short film compared to the more recent reissue. Though the glue on the disc holder has pretty much separated from the cardboard! It’s definitely worth double checking titles you leave behind again sometimes, as the price can lower by a few quid over weeks/days (though sometimes the opposite happens!). Though some of the titles in the StudioCanal Collection have been upgraded to 4K, like Breathless, The Servant, The Elephant Man, Mulholland Drive and others (Delicatessen and The Pianist are strongly rumoured), there’s still reasons to hold onto titles like To Be or Not to Be, The Trial, Le mepris, Le Cercle Rouge, 3 Days of the Condor, The Lost Honor of Katharina Blum for unique extras that don’t appear on their reissues, and I think there’s a simplicity to the design (though doesn’t translate as well to the standard reissue of Condor with the same artwork!)

I don’t really blind buy that often (Troll was more of that as seems like a lot of people had fun with it and the documentary about the cult fandom is well reviewed), I’m aware of most of the UK editions that are out there, and have a pretty long wishlist that’s kind of exhausting (This is England had been on the list for pretty much a decade) and I don’t know how I’ll ever watch everything I buy. But I also like the feeling of excitement and discovery that comes with a blind buy. I do still take into consideration extras, streaming options, reviews, eBay listings at a similar price, price history (find it harder to justify a Criterion at £10 or £12, even when it’s a good deal, when they tend to go in 2 for £25 - £8 hits the sweet spot as a more substantial discount), so ultimately what I end up buying is much smaller than where I started. I left behind a few titles because of marks to the cases or the shift away from Amaray cases which would look inconsistent. But I’m running out of shelving and boxes so will need to be careful. Some of the films in the haul I had already seen: La haine I’ve already seen most of the extras from Optimum’s DVD steelbook which included the soundtrack, I saw the 4K remaster in ODEON in 2020, the extras on the first disc are on BFI’s YouTube channel and there’s a 4K disc in France - but there’s still value in having it as it’s such a good film, I don’t think the Assassins short film has surfaced elsewhere with English subtitles, the casting and deleted scenes that initially appeared on the French DVD weren’t on the UK one, and of course it comes with a book. Fences I saw on release in 2017 and found it really moving, but six years is a long time and comes with a few featurettes and as I love Washington and Davis as actors, I figured it would be worth the revisit for a couple of quid.

Just had a look at Naked Lunch (sticker says it's 4K) which was sat on the shelf behind the counter, but it's not the 4K version it's the regular blu-ray at the price of the 4K!

I recon had been traded in without the J-card and the staff had made a mistake in identifying it.

Picked up the limited edition of Arrow's UHD release of Henry today.

All complete with the hard case, book, cards etc for £15.

Weirdly they sell the standard release for the same price, which I can't really figure out.

All I need now is a night when the Mrs is out as I doubt she'll appreciate it somehow.

Thanks for the heads up, just ordered online.

Still waiting for Amazon to dispatch it from a couple of months ago (think it was a misprice) - I don't think that will happen so will give it a try from CEX.

Dang, been keeping an eye on a few bits but that postage price creeping up again makes it harder to buy from them when they charge per item.

Of course my local CEX never has anything in that I'm after.

Geez Louise they are taking the piss with that postage, do they just not want the hassle of sending stuff out? Postage that expensive completely destroys any saving you get by using them in the first place (for modestly price blu rays at least).

Ridiculous, but then again postage costs are always going up with Royal Fail. I don't know why they don't just allow free collection of certain, more expensive items in store. Like when HMV order in stock from other stores.

That's me done using them then. I hated the fact that they charged £ 1.95 now to charge that no done.

I presume because they have no stock transfer system to move stock around their stores network. You also need to remember that many stores are franchises so owned by private individuals and not the Cex company so they wouldn't want to share costs.

Only way to move stock would be to post to another store using Royal Mail and that has same costs as posting to a customer's home address.

Plus unlike HMV where itís weekly new releases, CEX gets new stock in every day and probably has limited space to store all of it, especially when we take into account not just discs but also games consoles, laptops and other tech. I doubt Cash Converters does stock transfers either. I only really buy in store anyway so I can check the condition of the item first, rather than taking a gamble. While £3 postage is a lot, and I wish you could combine it when ordering multiple items, ultimately it still costs money to transfer items between stores, and postage costs have been climbing up as it is.

I dunno about everyone else's local/usual CeXs, but mine have had increasingly diminishing Blu-Ray stock for months now - the shelves are barebones and have nothing decent on them anymore.

It depends upon what people in your locality are selling. Obviously not many looking to trade / sell BDs.

Don't think Cex share stock around between stores as each franchise owner is selling stock for their own business but within a pricing framework Cex set centrally.

Is also why what you see in cash convertors varies so wildly between different stores.

Holloway has been brutal for a while now (there used to be some really good boutique stuff in there, presumably all from the same source who has now moved).

Camden has reduced as well but I picked up Synchronic for £3 in there a couple of weeks back and the Birdcage last week.

Don't know if this has been discussed already, but I ordered a game yesterday and the delivery cost has increased from £1.95 to £2.95.
Based on this support page, looks like it increased on the 10th of July.

Missed this post by Sam above. Ah, to go back the good old days where you could order a stack of CDs, BDs etc paying £2.50 for the entire order. My BD collection certainly ballooned over that time. XD

Game arrived today, looked a bit odd. Printed cover...
Going back tomorrow to a store. As always, these printed covers (according to their own policies) should never be sent in an online order.
And if you ask me, they should be heavily discounted instore too, as they are essentially a disc/cartridge only release.
