re: Olive Films to distribute Paramount and Republic titles

I know this is kind of bitchy but...I'll have to wait for good price drops for the lack of "sufficient" extras.

Yes, better to have them out than sitting in the can

Re: Olive Films to distribute Paramount and Republic titles

Looks like Family Video is the best bet for Olive titles, as they offer them for $17.99 each. Unfortunately, their free shipping coupon expired yesterday.

Wow, Firstborn! I'm sure I'm one of the few in the world who care but I'll be scooping this up for sure. Another VHS retired.

Re: Olive Films to distribute Paramount and Republic titles

This Republic-Olive deal is working well. Next up should be Letter from an Unknown Woman, Caught, Dark Mirror, Secret Beyond the Door, Rio grande and A Double Life.

Re: Olive Films to distribute Paramount and Republic titles

The first Olive release with any extras is The Boogens, coming on 8/7, and including an audio commentary by director James L. Conway, star Rebecca Balding and screenwriter David O’Malley:

Try Importcds.com, I ones I bought from them (The perfect Weapon, Crack in the world, Geisha Boy, Boeing Boeing) were about 14.50 each plus $3.00 shipping for the first item and 1.50 for each additional.

Thanks for the tip. Are you not able to pre-order titles? I tried to add Colossus, Space Children, and several other upcoming Olive discs only to be told 'Not yet released, coming soon'. Also, do they ship titles as they become available?

Never tried preordering from them before so I guess not but my order was shipped within the next day and I got them within a week. The company is siblings with DeepDiscount (I believe) and will be package the same as DD's.

Re: Olive Films to distribute Paramount and Republic titles

importcds is definitely the cheapest for Olive dvds and blus, also Kino blus.

But their pre-orderign system baffles me, for example a lot of the to come Olive titles show up 'on sale' for $14ish but you cant add them to your cart.

Re: Olive Films to distribute Paramount and Republic titles

I've ordered from ImportCDs before and I think I was able to add pre-orders to the cart.

I did have one bad experience with them..they sent me a completely wrong order and it took them days to answer my e-mail...and then more angry e-mails from me and weeks before they allowed me to return the shipment and credit my account (including the amount I paid for shipping it back). They would not send me a replacement shipment after they received it. I did not order from them for months as I was so upset by the poor customer service.

My last order from them took almost 3 weeks to get to me as it was stuck in New Jersey for over a week...I have no idea why. But they did answer my e-mail about the shipment within one day so maybe they are improving on their CS.

They are rolling out some big guns in the classics department, with this, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, and a couple of others. I only own one Olive release so far, but they will be parting me from more money for sure this year.

Re: Olive Films to distribute Paramount and Republic titles

^ They really are rolling out some huge titles. I don't own any Olive films yet, not that I'm not interested but because they have been a little higher than I want to spend, but some of these titles will likely cause me to raise my spending threshold. I would love to watch the original and '70s versions of Invasion of the Body Snatchers during this year's Horror Challenge. Yes, I'm already thinking that far ahead!

Re: Olive Films to distribute Paramount and Republic titles

i only on AMER from Olive and that's a solid disc...can't speak for their catalog releases. i have HIGH NOON on pre-order and i look forward to snagging most of these releases even if they're around the $20 mark. rather have this than what Twilight Time is doing.
