Any recommendations of where to buy Other region DVDs?

I'm loking for a site where I can purchase dvds encoded for other regions other than r1, particulary Robin Hood: Men in Tights R4, Ed Wood r2(?) and Army of Darkness R3.

Thanks, any info is appreciated.

dvdpricecheck.co.uk which is the international dvd price engine, and dvdcompare.org.uk to compare region versions.

www.amazon.co.uk and www.cdwow.net are both reliable sources, quick shipping too and generally a low price.

One thing to watch out for when buying from European sites is that the price generally has a built in tax called VAT. For instance, you see a price of 14.99 GB, the actual price is 12.99 with 2.00 being VAT. If your ordering from North America, you do not need to pay VAT. Some sites will explain that the prices shown are without VAT (gets added later if it applies to you,) some sites (like Amazon) will deduct VAT during checkout, and many more sites will not mention VAT at all and charge you for it while pocketing the extra for themselves.

For R4: www.ezydvd.com.au and www.planetdvd.com.au

For R3: www.dddhouse.com or www.dvdshelf.com

For R2: www.bensonsworld.co.uk

I've used all them and have been satisfied.

You'll like Ed Wood, it's a great disc. Lots of features along with excellent transfer and crisp sound.
