why the hell is the uk, so expensive for dvd's and cd. i really can't understand it, just ordered taxi 2 from dddhouse.com and saw the price for taxi and had a fit.

taxi brought from :-
the hive is $9 (us) thats 6.50 (+ p and p)
play247 is $21 (us) thats 15
uk shops is $35 (us) thats 25

(by uk shops i mean wh smiths, block busters, wool worths)

so by buying the dvd from block busters i have just wasted 10 on the title, 50 pence on a car park, around a pound in fuel to get there, and wasted an hour of my time.

Why must people post these troll-like comments? This person never asked for anyone's opinion on the movie itself.

I agree that R2-UK DVDs are overpriced. I just received Taxi 2 DTS from DDDHouse today and upon my quick five minute test of the disc, it looks and sounds awesome!
