Question for anyone getting Punishment Park from Lovefilm. Is it just on reserve at the moment and is there a date, or am I going to have to buy it to make sure it gets here in time? I've never placed a reserve order from them before so I don't really know what the craic is.

THe latter is quite odd - I don't know why rental places would get rid of their old copy just because there was a new one-† but the new one is out and rental places normally stock Eureka? I checked another of their dual formats though and Tesco are only showing it as Blu Ray, another shows as both, another shows as the old release with nothing on the new one. Really variable.



Eureka have pulled their rental service from Lovefilm completely. I imagine there have tried to do the same with the others as well, so you will be lucky to get it that way from now on. It happened around the start of the last HoF.

You're unlikely to get it through Lovefilm now then. The new release is (I'm fairly sure) through a company that doesn't allow their films to be rented from Lovefilm.

Edit - TRM got there first.

You know I saw that post a few weeks back, but thought it was referring to the film 'Eureka' which I got no problem from LF, so therefore skimmed over what it was actually about.

Why have it on reserve though if that is the case? Why not just 'No film for you!' in a Soup Nazi voice?

Certainly the initial rant about child actors sounds like me, but I think you've got the wrong name above that quote.

That can  be variable as well. There have been past issues with Network DVD where they've allowed you to reserve but don't tell you they don't have it (although, but not for all films, when they had a fight with one of the main releasing studios they did say the thing was unavailable).

If there are no other options around I could lend you my old copy (by old I mean the original release, not the re-release).

For me I think the thing is that Henrey isn't one of those slick Spielbergian child actors who emote on cue and do arch etc. With no acting experience what I see on screen is a very naturally performed confused and scared kid.

I'll let you know, going to have a shout out in Belfast to see if anyone has a copy, and I also have an Amazon voucher knocking about somewhere I think.

That's probably a lot of why I didn't like him at all. I just don't like kids. God, I'm like Rawlinson!

I agree with both of you but in a different order.

I don't like children but Henrey isn't like one of those Spielbergo emote-a-kids so his performance doesn't derail the film and in fact enhances it.

I've finally started reading the Cookie book you recommended some time back, btw. Some lovely stuff in there. I'm trying to space it out between that, the HoF books and the childhood favourites I've been rediscovering.

This HOF seems to have generated less discussion than others, I think. Is everyone being lazy like myself and and not watching them until the last minute?
