Martin Scorsese Collection ~$23 at dvdsoon

I was searching dvdsoon and found this. It is $10 cheaper than bestbuy and DDD. I think it is a good deal for 4 great movies

Is it the upcoming MGM set, or the WB one? Thanks...

$10 cheaper, but you have to wait ten times as long for it to get to you.

BestPrices.com has the Scorsese MGM collection for $24.81 + $2.98 shipping. That's for 4 films. By comparison, Amazon is selling Raging Bull alone for $18.89 with STL.

P.S. The BestPrices site lists the set as Full Screen, but that has to be an error.

I preordered this set way back on November 24th for 26.98 CAD and yesterday I received a shipping notification. Looks like i might be getting this even earlier than street date!

Yet another positive dvdsoon experience for me.

Same here. I ordered November 15th, when the set was going for $21 and slapped $5 shipping on it just to make sure (since everyone complains about the time it takes, which they're right about - *see below). I got the confirmation, so we'll see how it arrives...

*I ordered Dead Ringers 15th Anniversary edition, and it took 20+ days, despite the added $5 shipping for time-insurance. So far they haven't responded to my request of a $5 refund....

I just checked and noticed this was released a couple of weeks ago. I can't find any info on this being released in the States. It seems this is a Canadian release only. How is the transfer on this?? Is it worth the money or should I still keep my eyes out for the Criterion version??

not to be a booster for dvdsoon, but I ordered about 50 or more dvds from them during the recent sale a couple months ago, and got most of them in very short time (with the free shipping). And most of them were even out of stock because of the sale. However, there were 2 dvd's that took a long time, but out of 50 I didn't really mind, especially since I was warned to be patient.

It's a port of the criterion collection. It even says so on the cover.

What's your definition of a "very short time"?

Just recieved Scorsese Collection fron DvdSoon. Not a French word on the outer box cover anywhere. Haven't opened the shrink wrap to view the individual movie cases yet.

It's the MGM Set.

Do you mind updating the group when you do open up the set? I'd appreciate it.

I recieved my Scorsese MGM set today from dvdsoon. No french on the exterior. As well, no french anywhere inside either.

I must say it is a beautiful sturdy slipcase. I am quite impressed, a much classier package than the WB set.

Inside the box, Raging Bull is even sealed seperately.

Went ahead and ordered today. Just over $27US with First Class shipping. Haven't ordered from them in a while. I've never had any complaints with them before.

Yes Raging Bull is the 2 disc. That is even how it is advertised on the exterior slipcase - "Special Edition 2-Disc DVD Collector's Set."

I took a few quick pics:
