Also it would be helpful if they listed the specs of the DVD like if they are in English or have the English subtitles... I just got the Mad Max with the original Mel Gibson Vocals and it makes the film much better. I am interested in getting a couple more like the Evil that Men Do with Charles Bronson but am not sure if it will be in English or have the subtitles Widescreen or P&S. Any help would really be appreciated!

Far and away the best R2 online store I've ever had to deal with. Have bought literaly hundreds of discs with them and never had any cause to complain.

They're based in Jersey just off the English coast so there's also no hurrendous taxation on the silver goodies!

Looks like they don't ship to America.

They definitely don't ship to the USA. You can use a remailing service of course if you are willing to pay the charges, but I strongly suggest using a retailer that does ship directly to the USA, e.g. amazon.co.uk (expensive) or blackstar.co.uk.

...or Benson's World (cheaper than Black Star, plus free worldwide shipping of DVDs!) (*)

http://www.bensonsworld.co.uk/detail...=7000000061047

(*) ...e.g. The House Of Mirth is 18,59 at Black Star
vs. 15,99 - including shipping at Benson's World)

$26.50 vs. $22.75. I've ordered a couple of times from Benson's and I haven't been dissappointed. I hear Blackstar can get your DVD to you in about 3 days. For $3 less you can get it in 7-10 days. Hong Kong Legends discs are nice.

Yes. I was amazed how fast I received my order in California.

I'm in Wisconsin and I always receive my packages from BensonsWorld in 4-5 days.

I've used CDJapan a lot. Yes, their shipping cost are high, but it's well worth it to get the package delivered to my door within a few days via express mail. Also, they're very friendly and responsive to email queries - which rates high in my book.

I like CD Japan. You can also get a discount on the price depeneding on the exchange rate when your credit card gets billed.
