Videoflicks.com . . .how are they?

Generally I don't buy dvds from places I don't know about, but for the Canadian region 1, 3 disc set of The ******* I think I'll have to make an exception. So anyways, how is videoflicks.com? Do they ship the products intact? How long is shipping?
Any info would be appreciated.

Canadian set of what?

I've never used them, but I'm curious about what you're ordering...

Bizarre, you can talk about pianos, penises and penists but not [email protected]? Just more proof that censorship can't work right 100% of the time. Either that or dvdtalk really doesn't like the movie...

I placed an order at videoflicks.com for the OOP 2 disk Big Trouble in Little China a few weeks ago. At $19 shipped it wasn't too bad, considering I couldn't find it anywhere else online or B&M. Service was fine. When I placed the order it said 1 left in stock. Soon after I placed my order it changed to on order. I recieved it in about a week more or less. Sorry I don't recall the exact timing. My only concern is that it came in a silver/grey case ala the Die Hard movies, and the disks themselves had a very grainy appearance (the physical disks, once playing they were fine). I thought I remembered the case being the standard black, but don't know for sure. Anyway, I have some doubts about it being a bootleg, but someone here may know if that is typical of BTILC. I was just happy to find it somewhere as it disappeared off the shelves while I was still looking for a deal on it. I know it was at CH, but it disappeared there (along with Fight Club 2D) before I got around to opening a new account.

Cool, thanks for the information. I guess I'll preorder that 3 Disc set sometime this week.

The 2 disc version comes in the gray case. Yours is legit.

I ordered some stuff from videoflicks a few weeks ago. THey have good shipping rates considering they are being shipped from canada. I ordered 4 DVD's they shipped in 2 seperate shipments, so the rest of my order came a few days later.

They honored a misprice for Friends Season One last year with no hassle, good customer service, and quick shipping. I haven't dealt with them since, but based on that transaction, I would use them again.
