      It was a good film and quite a few laughs too.
      "Laughs" as in a theatre comedy play?

      Oh dear, someone from Sky must have been following this thread...

      I've received an email this evening pointing out that the Minions is now available in the Sky Store (Buy & Keep 13.99 HD).

      I guess it's time for you to get it!

      I still find whoopie cusions amusing.... in the right circumstances. Harry Potter, although I've never read the books I really enjoyed the movies, we went to the cinema to see all of them, escapism, pure and simple; if you don't believe in magic, you'll never find it.

      No thanks, I stopped collecting DVD's & Blu-Rays long time ago when the bookshelves and CD racks were full.

      Cant say I often see a bluray in anyone's home.
      Got rid of my DVDs many years ago along with the CDs, in fact got loads of cash on them from Magpie.
      Did see someone the other week who had two or those racks either side of their tv full of cds and dvds and had a mini hifi and dvd player stuck under their sky box. Quite rare these days, it was like going back in time.
      Mind, sky do send out dvds with sky store so people still must use them.

      CD quality never was that good, despite what they said at the time and I hated all those remasters, just ruined the classics.
      Was tempted ten or so years ago to buy a record deck to play all the vinyl that is sitting in my loft, when that revival started.
      Just use Spotify and Google Play with all my music in the cloud now and the ease of use wins hands down.
      Annoyingly too as you get older, you slowly lose your hearing, so the quality gets lost over time, so mp3s suffice, but do pull out the flac and lossless occasionally.

      We watched Star Wars A new hope last night, with Google Play and chromecasted, quality was excellent.
      We are watching them as a build up to the new one.
      The full HD six movie collection with an offer from Google was 29.

      You'd be shocked to look in my home then..

      Blu-Ray, Sky Rx, Panasonic Sound Box, all under the TV. Then there's the HiFi unit, seperates of course, Tuner/Amp ( no DAB ), cassette, CD, Mini Disc, DAB Rx/Media Player, Turntable.

      What would I do with all that space if we got rid of the stuff we don't use that often, and where would the dust collect?

      Forgot to add that the Blu-Ray and TV are both networked and can and do play from the media server, as can the media player.

      I watched Mockingjay over the weekend and really enjoyed it.

      One thing that the Blu-ray copy I watched will have over anything that Sky currently supplies was the sound quality. Sure the video quality of a Blu-ray will also be much better, but their sound is limited to 5.1. The Blu-ray certainly used all 7.1 speakers and I had to turn it down a little otherwise I'd have been getting some impromptu additional knocks where there shouldn't be any.

      Yes I do have content on my two NAS that I can watch too, but all too often what we can view legally just is not up to the same quality as a Blu-ray.

      Was that the new Mockingjay that has not been released yet?
