Koreandvds.com is having a sale on Superbit titles!!!

Yup, after I spoke with the owner, he took my suggestion and put up a sale for Superbit titles... The sale ends on Feb. 27.

They are either $12 or $13, so if you missed the sale on CD-WOW, this is your chance again...

And, since Superbit titles are actually R1, R3 and R4, you don't need a region free player to play them

And yes, even Spider Man superbit (only available in Korea) is on sale at $13!!!

The following are $12
Anaconda
Bad Boys
Big Hit, The
Boot, Das
Bram Stoker's Dracula
Charlie's Angels
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
Desperado
From Here To Eternity
Gattaca
Johnny Mnemonic
Knight's Tale, A
Lawrence of Arabia
Legends Of The Fall
Mask of Zorro, The
Men In Black
One, The
Panic Room
Quick And The Dead, The
Snatch
Vertical Limit
XXX

The following are $13
Hollow Man
Men In Black
Patriot
Spider-Man

Very reliable. Unfortunately...I JUST placed an order. If I could, I would put Spiderman in with that order. I don't think it's possible though.

Why don't you just cancel your order and place your order again to include spiderman?

Yup yup! I placed an order the other day. Thankfully since I ordered the Blackhawk Down Superbit, they didn't include that in their sale. Would have been mighty pissed.

The only Superbit I would probably get is Quick and The Dead. Might put that in on my next order...with Fight Club.

Edit: Scratch that....the owner added this little note on the website about Fight Club:

As to the Fight Club which is schedule for March, considering the popularity, we decided to take it off the site and sell them once the titles come out rather than having to cancel some orders. I think we are safe with the poeple who already ordered.


Spiderman Superbit I would pass on....film wasn't that great but I know I am in the minority.

The owner is a nice guy.

Yes, I've found the folks at koreandvds.com VERY pleasant to deal with. I've twice had to cancel titles after I placed the order because I read that there were problems with the titles on the internet and they were very cool with it. Even though credit card payment is via a third party, they simply credited my account with them so I pay less on my next order.

Just placed another pretty big order with them with one Superbit title (Spidey). I'd ordered most of the other Superbits that I wanted during the DeepDiscountDVD sale. Anyone have any idea whether the r3k Spidey Superbit is a regular Superbit or a Superbit deluxe? koreandvds.com doesn't say that it is a 2 disc set but Yesasia lists it as being 2 discs.

The R3K Spider-man Superbit is in fact a superbit deluxe, though it does not say so like R3K Patriot or Hollowman. The contents on disc 2 is exactly the same as the ones on disc 2 of the regular version.

Therefore, you are basically losing the interactive menu, commentary tracks on disc 1 for a higher bitrate of video and an English dts track.

R1 Das Boot is never a Superbit Deluxe in the first place, since Superbit Deluxe would have a second disc with extras.
It is a 2 disc Superbit, just like in R1

That doesn't matter. It sure as hell ain't gonna be $13 here.

The point isn't that they're available. It's the price.

oh, just found out that Men In Black 2 is Supebir deluxe (2-disc)

nice...
so, R3 Superbit deluxe (that are on sale right now):
spider-man, MIB 2, Mask of Zorro, Hollow Man, Patriot


the rest are regular superbit... although Lawrence of Arabia & Das Boot are 2-disc, BUT THEY ARE NOT Superbit Deluxe... no extras what so ever... just 2-disc of film

hope it helps
