Just scored the R3 The Incredibles Limited box with Jack-Jack doll over at DVDdetective. As of 11:20am est, they have one left for those interested. $70

Also picked up the R3 Limited Tin of Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers at the same site for $35

I swear, you can check out that site every day for months and not come across some of the harder to find sets and then one day, blam .. there it is. Beautiful thing.

Also picked up:

R3 Quiet Family LE
R3 My Wife is a Gangster 2 Disk

I would have liked the 3 disk, but what the heck .. haven't bought anything in awhile and I had a fairly successful splurge.

I'm interested in your take on the video transfer quality of this DVD release of "Open City".
Just received the DVD and I was pleasantly surprised. For $4.99, I was expecting something along the lines of the average Public Domain release but the transfer is pretty nice - crisp and not blurry or dark. The region 1 Image DVD is OOP but I can't see it being much better than this release. The subtitles are also easy to read.The print is not restored and has some damage, but all in all a very nice DVD. A great buy!

In the last 2 weeks:

From DeepDiscountDVD
Last Life In The Universe (Region 0 ??)

From DDDHouse
My Wife Is A Gangster DTS - Region 3 HK
Joint Security Area DTS - Region 3 HK
Old Boy DTS - Region 3 HK (double dip as my FE is screwy)

From Amazon.co.uk
Sympathy For Mr. Vengeance - Region 3 UK PAL

From DVDHeaven
Save The Green Planet DTS - 2DSE Region 3 Korea
Memories of Murder DTS - 2DSE Region 3 Korea

From HKFlix
Sex Is Zero - Region 3 HK

From Koreandvds
Kung Fu Hustle DTS - Standard Region 3 HK

All orders were painless and my first time ordering from each. All arrived in reasonable time from their respective warehouses except for dvdheaven, sort of an accident on my part but they could have cleared it up easily. Mix up with my order, it got cancelled but i was already charged and after countless e-mails they couldn't understand that I paid already. 2 weeks after being charged and they're just shipping to me *shrug*

This is a bootleg. Check asiandvdguide.com for more information.

NB: The pertinent thread has been deleted in the forum I mentioned in the meantime.

RE: Longer cut R1 Constantine.:

Not at all pissed. Depending on the quality of the film, I may double dip. This is purely a blind buy so my expectations are rather neutral at this point.

Really? It's by Panmedia. I've never known HKflix to sell bootlegs, either. I've been looking for this movie forever, and have been very careful to buy a legit copy. If it's new I don't think asiandvdguide would have it yet.

Asiandvdguide doesn't have it listed, it was discussed in their forum and identified as a bootleg. The thread was subsequently deleted. http://forum.hkcinemagic.com/index.p...iew=getnewpost has another discussion (if you speak French). Alternatively, do a google search for Panmedia + bootleg.

http://p088.ezboard.com/fhongkongdvd...cID=7839.topic mentions another - apparently bootleg - title carried by hkflix.

Other Panmedia titles in the hkflix catalogue even indicate that in some cases they use e.g. the artwork of legit French DVDs for their release.
