Avoid IranianMovies.com !!

Just to let you know... I remmebr the thread firstly being in here somehwere:

Review of their The Cyclist DVD with screen captures is here:
http://207.136.67.23/film/dvdcompare...dvd-review.htm

Well, were can we start... an obvious bootleg, done, most likely in somebody's basement computer. The picture quality is atrocious, as is the sound. Although there are chapters, I could never reach the end of them as the disc failed at 38:00 minutes: "The DVD disc might have been damaged so as to inhibit playback operation."
No Extras, No Menu. Non-removable subs. The film is short my 20 minutes of its intended length. The quality is sub-par VHS. My advice is to avoid this outfit ( www.iranianmovies.com ) like the plague. They are obviously bandits. I will be seeking my money back, but purchasing this one disc has shown me what I wanted to know. I give this disc 0 out of 5 .

Cheers,

Is it just me, or would you buy something from a company whose name was two steps shy of "WeScrewYouVideo.com"? I suppose that this is directed at many of the posts on here in general, not just this one . . . but come on! IranianVideo.com?

We don't exactly have the best trade relations with Iran either. Aren't they even listed on Bush's "Axis of Evil"?

incredible this thread, this place is starting to look like avsforum more and more

anyway just to warn the handful of people with good taste and reading skills

(c&p from post at htforum)

I second gary's comments about iranianmovies.com. Bought THE MIRROR from them and it came on a dvd-rw with printed stick-on label and cover. Pq was not as bad as gary's captures, but close. When i complained the guy was rude, and it was only until i said i'd get my creditcard co involved that he offered to give me a full refund. I'll send back the dvd today, we'll see what happens.
