Just received my parcel from Amazon and .... I'm absolutely livid. All three discs were just rattling around inside one big box, and although Dr Strangelove and Dirty Harry just about escaped unharmed, The Exorcist is absolutely battered. :mad2: In fact, I have a sneaking suspicion that it has been resealed (the shrink wrap just doesn't look 'factory' too me).

Does anyone have any experience with Amazon.com complaints. What are the odds of getting a replacement?

And do you know what the final insult was? 18 customs and handling from DHL. Would have been cheaper to buy from Amazon.co.uk marketplace. That was one expensive lesson I just learned. :mmph:

I've never had anything wrong with any of the Amazons yet luckily but from what I gather, their service is good when it comes to faulty goods. Take some pics and email contact them. I've heard in some cases with international orders they haven't even bothered asking for a return as its probably not worth them paying the costs.

Bad luck about the customs charges. You have to order separately or go expedited with customs charges in advance for an order over 15 to be safe.

Bloody hell, that is a surprise!

the blob 3rd December 2011 05:18 PM

Good price but I'm not in any rush for them. Historically, Fox don't really discount Star Wars much so I probably can't see it getting a lot better.

I'm holding my horses too until the SW BR box set comes down even further than 49. I'm hoping about 30 or better yet 17 like the Alien Anthology.

That's Entertainment in Gateshead's The Metro Centre currently have a 3 each or two for a fiver promo going on with brand new BRs at the mo featuring the likes of Batman And Robin, Batman Forever, The Omega Man and Awaydays. Yours truly snapped up TOM yesterday as i'm quite content to own the other three titles on DVD.:)

Yeah, I picked up The Omega Man a while back from there. Don't suppose you can remember what else they had in that offer do you?

Now THAT is a bargain. Think I bought it just under the 20 mark but didn't see it getting that low.

Splatterdragon73 10th December 2011 09:25 AM

Does anybody know if the U.K. Back To The Future trilogy BR set is identical to the U.S. HD release for audio commentaries and extras?

I fancy buying this edition cheap but only if British buyers get the same deal as American audiences.:)

Yeah as far as I know, they're identical.

Splatterdragon73 11th December 2011 09:15 AM

I thought as much but i wanted a second opinion before deciding whether or not to buy British. Cheers Steve.:)

PaulD 11th December 2011 05:21 PM

Dammit I should've posted my link too. Seemed pointless, but maybe not. Eh, 20 for a tenner is still a sweet deal :cool: . . .

antmumford 20th December 2011 07:35 AM

In case anyone is interested The Dead and Shaolin are going for about 7 each on play.com at the mo.

I know it seems random to come up with that but they were two on my price tracking list that I've been wanting since release and they're finally under my 10 threshold price
