Yes, just bought a DVD blue ray and was scammed. Don't buy from them.

Amazon cracked down on this for sellers abusing condition descriptions as NEW so I don't think MovieMars engages in this deception anymore, but I believe they still reseal used items and list them under USED-LIKE NEW as "SEALED ITEM." One could easily mistake that as being NEW and not USED. I tend to shy away from MovieMars.
They are still selling on amazon and scamming. Stay away.

When I contacted them about it, they said it was my fault for ordering the wrong thing (I don't know why I thought that by ordering a DVD from a company in NC to be shipped to me in the US that I would actually get a DVD that could be viewed in the US -- silly me!) but that I could send it back. They credited the cost of the disc, less shipping, and of course I had to pay return shipping. So, now that all is said and done, they have a useless DVD to send to someone else and I am out (2) shipping charges. I guess they make pretty good money on keeping customers' shipping charges. I will never buy anything from MovieMars.com again -- not even if my life depended on it. BEWARE -- they will send you products that don't work and you will be stuck with (2) shipping charges! Avoid at all cost! There are far better and more ethical DVD sellers out there in my opinion.


This is so fucking stupid, I've been dying of laughter for the past five minutes.

Re: Anyone bought stuff from MovieMars.com?

MovieMars is actually one of the last independent media sellers left in the States outside the Super D empire.

They tend to undercut the Super D listings on eBay by a few percent.

Re: Anyone bought stuff from MovieMars.com?

I've ordered a few things from them in the past, mostly stuff that had just slipped out of print (do I ever miss those weekly going OOP threads we used to have here) at a decen price, and they always came through.

Nothing recently, though.
