UNILAD’s hand-picked Prime Day entertainment deals
Yes, we know, physical media sometimes feels like an archaic concept. Why bother buying discs when you can just stream on Prime Video or another platform? Speaking of, you can subscribe to Prime Video Channels like BFI Player and STARZPLAY for three months for just 99p as part of Prime Day.
However, the simple answers are: Blu-Rays are cool, and you absolutely own them. If there’s ever an issue with your internet, you can rely on your trusty discs to get you through the slump. To celebrate the benefits of physical copies, we’ve rounded up the greatest steals from this year’s sale.

£20 Now: £13.99
£10.80 off Breaking Bad: The Complete Series (Blu-Ray), now £25.20

£8.84 off Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 1–6 (DVD), now £32.19
While still on-going, Prime Day is the perfect opportunity to pick up the first six seasons of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, the hit police sitcom from the makers of Parks and Recreation and The Office.
Stick on the boxset, get comfy and binge the first mishaps, heists laughs between Jake Peralta, Raymond Holt and the rest of Brooklyn’s finest precinct.
£41.03 Now: £32.19
£26.70 off Fast & Furious 1–8 (4K UHD + Blu-Ray), now £62.29
Sometimes, you just need a distraction. Something to take your mind off the woes of the everyday world, something wild, crazy, like Wacky Races with more guns. With that criteria, a Fast and Furious marathon is in order.
This 4K boxset has seen a huge drop of more than £25. Watching the franchise’s evolution from a street racing, Point Break-esque thriller to The Rock pushing a torpedo away with his bare hands is worth the price. Prepare for tears on the seventh entry.
£88.99 Now: £62.29

God creates dinosaurs, God destroys dinosaurs, God creates man, man destroys God, man… buys the Jurassic Park Trilogy on 4K UHD and Blu-Ray.
Jurassic World: Dominion has been delayed until 2022. It’ll be a while before we enjoy Isla Nublar’s inhabitants on the big screen again – for now, dive back into the original trilogy. ‘Life, uh, finds a way.’
£44.44 Now: £31.11
£26.70 off Mission: Impossible – The 6-Movie Collection (4K UHD + Blu-Ray + Bonus Disc), now £62.29
Tom Cruise is currently filming Mission: Impossible 7 and 8 back-to-back. So far, we’ve seen him drive off a ramp on a mountain and sit casually on a speeding train, so it’s par for the course.
In the meantime, you can watch his daredevil behaviour escalate from rock climbing, to scaling the Burj Khalifa, to hanging on the outside of a plane and later flying an actual helicopter in the Mission: Impossible collection.
£88.99 Now: £62.29
£5.03 off Once Upon a Time in… Hollywood (4K UHD + Blu-Ray), now £19.96
Quentin Tarantino’s penultimate film is pure movie magic; a beautifully crafted, deliriously cathartic sonnet to Hollywood’s Golden Age with irresistible star power in Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie.
For 161 minutes, you’ll roam the sun-kisses streets of a pre-Manson Los Angeles, with the Family on the rise and a TV actor’s career on its way out. One of the director’s greatest films in pristine 4K.
£24.99 Now: £19.96
£18.30 off Parks & Recreation – Seasons 1-7: The Complete Series (21-disc box set) (DVD), now £42.69
I could talk about how Parks & Recreation is easily one of the funniest sitcoms to have graced TV. I could evangelise about Ron Swanson’s love of meat, whisky and woodwork.
I could praise Amy Poehler’s comic talents to the high heavens, and how effortlessly Adam Scott’s geekery integrated into the cast. Or, I could borrow a timeless quote from Tom: ‘Treat yo’ self!’
£60.99 Now: £42.69
£14.10 off Rick & Morty Season 1–3 (Blu-Ray), now £32.89
There’s those who’ve never seen Rick & Morty, and there’s those who have. For one cartoon, it makes a huge difference to your life. Never will pickles look the same, the mere idea of Szechuan sauce will make your eye twitch, no toilet will ever seem quite as peaceful or comfy.
Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon’s acclaimed, beloved Adult Swim series blends science, wicked humour, shocking violence and pathos into a winning package. Wubba Lubba Dub-Dub!
£46.99 Now: £32.89
£16.50 off Shaun of the Dead/Hot Fuzz/The World’s End: The 4K Collection (4K UHD + Blu-Ray), now £38.49
Edgar Wright’s iconic ‘trilogy’ is one of the most quotable to ever grace the genre of comedy, from ‘waiting for this whole thing to blow over’ in the Winchester to ‘f*ck off up the model village’, ‘Yarp’ and ‘crusty jugglers’. With ease, it veers between zombies, rural cults and robots filled with blue stuff, all brutal yet packed with laughs.
Revisit all three films in this cracking 4K set, and grab a Cornetto from the shop while you’re at it.
£54.99 Now: £38.49
£25.48 off The Big Bang Theory: The Complete Series (Blu-Ray), now £59.47
It’s one of the most recognisable modern sitcoms, for better or worse. The Big Bang Theory is comfort material for some, hell for others. Its geekiness can be funny, but as the seasons progressed, it went beyond parody.
Nevertheless, there’s a reason the show lived on for 12 seasons through middling reviews – it’s easy viewing, and for those who grew up alongside the sitcom, this is a superb saving on the entire series.
£84.95 Now: £59.47
