Retailers -- Asian DVDs and/or VCDs

I am in the process of reorganizing this area. I.E. This area is still under construction

It occured to me that I needed a better way to logically and conveniently (re-)organize all the retailers.

These days companies in Hong Kong, Korea and Japan seem to be releasing onto dvd&vcd plenty of films from the other two countries along, lately, with films from outside Asia such as the U.S. and European countries.

I thought to myself that it would be madness to try to create subcategory after subcategory, ad infinitum (e.g. "Here are the retailers carrying european films that were released in this asian country. Now here are the retailers carrying japanese films released in that asian country. And now here are ...")


So... I've divided the information into (at least for now) three sections.

Section I : The country from which the dvd or vcd was issued (Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Singapore, or Taiwan)

Section II : The nationality of the film (Filipino, Indonesian, Thai, and Vietnamese)

Section III : The country in which the retailer is located


Section I : Retailers organized according to the country from which the dvd or vcd was issued

Section II : This section is organized according to the nationality of the film

It appears that there are very very few films of certain asian nationalities (such as Filipino, Indonesian, Vietnamese) that are being released on dvd/vcd in Hong Kong, Korea and Japan. To make it easier to locate such films that are available on dvd (or on vcd), I thought (well, I'm hoping) that this seperate section will be helpful in that search)

Worldwide list of mainstream retailers

Argentina Retailers :

The sites that appear to accept international orders (Info. as of march05,02 based on what I could determine via language-translation sites) :
&#0186 http://www.dvdventas.com.ar/
if you click on "Ayuda", you are taken to a "Preguntas Frecuentes"(, i.e. FAQ) In it, there is mention of different methods of payment that are accepted. Towards the bottom of the page under the title "Zona Geográfica Días hábiles para la entrega" is a list of what countries to which dvdventas will ship. Therefore, this list seems to indicate shipping to all parts of the world. But I could not find a part of the site that lists specific shipping&handling fees. I also could not determine what is the significance of the click-able list of Latin American countries on the title page (Info. last updated on March05,02)

&#0186 http://www.dvdmovies.com.ar/
"Formas de Pago" is forms of payment; "Preguntas Frecuentes" is Frequent Questions". If you click on "Preguntas Frecuentes" and then "Compras", you'll find more information on both handling of credit card information & ordering (more information on this can also be found here: http://www.dvdmovies.com.ar/terminos.html ), and wording that leads to the assumption that international orders are accepted : "y 35 pesos a países del resto del mundo" or "35 pesos to countries of the rest of the world". Further information (though still vague regarding international orders) can be found here: http://www.dvdmovies.com.ar/s-cart/t...-exterior.html (Note: using http://www.dvdmovies.com.ar/Medio.html seems to cause the site to load incorrectly with a lot of the site missing) (Info. last updated on March05,02)

&#0186 http://www.musimundo.com or http://www.musimundo.com/librosol/inicio.cfm
(The site for me loads VERY slowly. Aside from that, I'm impressed with the layout/arrangement of the site and its contents. There's an FAQ/Help section if you click on the "?"-icon in the upper right corner. There's a table half-way down the page detailing the shipping&handling fees to different parts of the world (It appears that this site delivers worldwide) )

The Argentina retailers that do not seem to have any identifiable or clear statement or information regarding international orders :
&#0186 http://www.dvdnext.com.ar/
seems to be incomplete or at least not operating correctly (Info. last updated on March05,02)

&#0186 http://www.lk-tel.com.ar or http://www.lk-tel.com.ar/home.asp
The only information regarding international orders that I could find was under "FAQ"-link. With a rough translation of the text under "Cómo debo de hacer para abrir una cuenta en Lk-Tel si quisiera poner un videoclub?: ", it appears that this site is a club that you must join first. And that each potential order is dealt with on a case-by-case basis depending on the location. (Info. last updated on March05,02)
Australia Retailers :
&#0149 For the Australian retailers that offer shipping by DHL (http://www.dhl.com.au/),
here is a brief explanation of it as offered by http://store.yahoo.com/dvdcrave-au/info.html#Ordering :
"When choosing DHL (http://www.dhl.com.au/) there are several advantages.
Obviously the major benefit is the speed of the delivery which is 2 Days to most Capital Cities
all around the world. Also the tracking system which allows you to see exactly where you order is in transit, and when to expect it. With DHL (http://www.dhl.com.au/), a signiture and name is required when being delivered, so this will also prevent any lost and stolen parcels. From a safety and security point of view, DVD Crave recommend you chose DHL International Express as your delivery option."

Price Comparison for Retailers in Denmark :
&#0186 http://www.dvdpriser.dk/
(I haven't had any time to explore what all this site offers. But after stumbling around, it appears as though you can proceed straightaway to price-comparing by clicking on "DVD-Film Region 2". Then, type in the name of the title for which you're looking beside "Søgeord", and then click on "Top 10" underneath "Info" to get a list of the 10 cheapest prices for that title.)

When you do this and proceed to that list, you can click on "Versanddetails" to view some details on that retailer such as accepted forms of payment along with some other details that are not clear to me due to the rough translation from altavista)

      or

      (Click on "dvd" to proceed to another page. Now, you can either proceed straightaway with price-comparing by simply typing in a title in the blank space or you can click on one of the commands. Here, with (rough) translations done by me with altavista, are what the commands will do:

      (Click on "Best Buy" to see "The current TOP good deals, whose price particularly deviates from the cut")
      (Click on "billig" to see a list of titles whose price lies between the two monetary values (from 0 to 75 EUR and from 5 to 80 EURO) which are adjustable by you)
      (Click on "preisrutsch" to see a list of the "price reductions [that] were found in the last 7 days")

A sleave is where we open the DVD from the shrink wrap and insert the DVD into a sleave (see picture to the right) We then insert the disc back into the case with a piece of foam or tape to hold it in position. This method ensures that discs are not damaged by coming out of their holding mechanism."

Atlantic DVD in South Australia

Atlantic DVD is a new online store (only a month or so old, I think) in South Australia, that has branched out of a B&M store. They do international orders.
I have ordered from them myself and was very happy with price and service.

Hi AutumnNights!

I was only concerned about the Russian section. I appreciate your work (you've done a great job!) and of course, with my "incomplete-incorrect" comments I did not mean that the whole list is incomplete or incorrect.

Just in case, I do speak Russian pretty well so do not hesitate to ask me any questions on Russian DVDs you have. BTW I have several Russian DVDs in my collection and I'm pretty happy with them.

A good place to find links to Australian DVD sales is to go to www.dvdplaza.com.au. Same sort of site as this one but has alot of links to the Australian e-retailers.

I did not see this one listed. I got it from Goldfishlegs this morning.

http://www.mainlymusic.com - Prices are all listed in Canadian currency.

Canadian Etailer where they sell Sony music cd's and Sony distributed DVD titles. H. They only ship to Canada.

I've placed my first order which is :
Items(s):
SKU QTY NAME PRICE DISCOUNT
005747.dvd 1 Bridge On The River Kwai: Limited E$22.99

Subtotal: $22.99
Shipping: FREE
HST: $3.45
Gift Certificate: ($3.00)
Total: $23.44

I checked ABsound and Futureshop, the same DVD is 45.49$ and 49.99$, so add the shipping and taxes and you save about 30-32$ buying from Mainlymusic.

[edit] Free ground shipping on ALL orders.

I got the DVD... indeed limited edition.


[edit] prices were a sale... now a lot pricier than before.

I share your pain -- I, too, have a looooonnnngggg wish-list of dvds from different countries. So many titles and not enough money to spread around.

Everyone else : I appreciate very much your suggestions for additions to this thread. I haven't made any updates to it in awhile only because of the amount of things that I've had to take care of over the last couple of weeks and because I needed to take a little bit of a break from the thread.

I plan to return to updating the thread sometime within the next several weeks.

Regards,
A.N.
when you do get back to updating, you might want to add Foreign Films as a general review site. It's kind of like an IMDB for foreign film junkies. No, it doesn't specifically relate to DVD's but I think if people can read reviews of the movies they'll get hooked - I know I've found several titles that I now want because of it....
