Got Amityville Horror boxset for £7. There is a new, big shop on Tott Ct Rd which has some sci-fi DVDs at cheaper than 'on the web' price. It's about middle way along the street and sell books, dvds and cds.

Blade Runner

I found a video of BR The Director's Cut, still in its plastic wrapper, in my stack the other day. Does anyone buy videos these days? Perhaps I'll hold onto as an investment :)
