The game of roulette – and its many variants – have a long cinematic history, starting with David O. Selznick’s eponymous 1924 feature, and continuing through Casablanca (1942) and Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s stylish and disturbing Chinese Roulette (1976), in which the game was a cruel psychological one. The Deer Hunter (1978) is remembered in part for its unforgettable, harrowing Russian Roulette scenes, whereas 1993′s Indecent Proposal is remembered for being awful.

Promotion!!! – Entertainment Central is Closing Down!

Filed under: Film - General — Rodney Twelftree @ 3:38 pm

Entertainment Central Sale Promo Logo Promotion!!!   Entertainment Central is Closing Down!

Australian and Adelaide readers, now is your chance to snag a DVD and BluRay bargain!!! Local Adelaide store, Entertainment Central, is closing down in mid-June, and they’re looking to clear a bunch of stock. If you’re reading this, it means you have a chance to pick up some sweet, sweet DVDs, BluRay’s, games and other film paraphernalia from the guys really cheap. I don’t normally promote other businesses on this site, but I called in there today and grabbed a handful of discs for a bargain, and the staff are friendly and helpful too.

So, if you’re in the mood for a bargain, jump onto the phone, or flick off an email, or get in the can and drive to Entertainment Central, over at Shop 3, 725 Lower North East Road, Paradise SA, and see what they can do for you. Ex-rental DVD’s kick in at either 2 for $10, 3 for $10, and ex-rental Blu’s are between $7 and $10 each. Some new release ex-rentals are available for about $13-$15 each, depending on titles. They also stock the latest games for PC, PS3, 360 and Wii. EC doesn’t currently have a website (that I can find) but you can call Argy between 12pm-8pm Mon-Fri (all times in South Australian Central time) on (08) 8365 0844, or on mobile on 0400 033 272 or email a wish-list of wants at  Because it’s a closing down sale, naturally as stock depletes there won’t be any orders taken – in other words, what you see is what you get, so get in fast. Postage for interstate and international readers and buyers is available upon request!!

A clarification: I have not been paid for this post, as I am simply hoping to help a fellow local businessman out. He is due to close his doors in mid June and he really is desperate to clear out a whole bunch of his stock (and he has a heap, I saw it today!), so if you could swing some support his way and perhaps pick up some DVD’s or Blu’s for cheap, everyone benefits!!! Tell them I sent you, see what deal you can get.
