The price for Band of Brothers is good on Amazon UK. I just ordered it and it would cost £23.91 including shipping (I did order Transporter 2 and 3 at the same time). That works out to around NZ$57. Pretty good deal in my opinion. $1 is around 42 pence currently.

Here is my order:
1 of: Band Of Brothers [Blu-ray] [2001] [Blu-ray] £21.72
1 of: Transporter 2 [Blu-ray] [2005] [Blu-ray] £7.80
1 of: Transporter 3 [Blu-ray] [2008] [Blu-ray] £9.98
Postage & Packing: £6.56
Payment Grand Total: NZ$113.29

Amazon UK often has good deals and their shipping is better than Amazon US. But given I have a US PS/3 I have been caught out a few times with discs that are region only and I can't play them :-( It's often npt clear on their web site what the region is.

Yeah Amazon Uk and US are complete crap for giving the correct region or correct soundtrack information. Very poor.

If you want to check then go here: http://bluray.liesinc.net/index.php?region=b

I guess I should have checked but the prices were so compellling. In the end I had to back up the titles to my server and watch them that way - not so convenient but at least I could watch them.

Amazon UK: Buy one get one free on Blu-Ray.

Not a huge selection but you may find a bargain.

Picked up Flyboys from Amazon UK yesterday for $24. The picture and sound are stunning, far far superior to the DVD. Quite a good movie as well, recommended.
