    Be aware that the HK dvd of 'Ichi' is even more heavily cut than the UK one.

    I had a copy a while back from Coolashop, aware it was the cut version but worth a look given the cheap price. Its still pretty extreme in its cut form!

    I ordered a few titles, at that price its worth it.

    Thanks for the post Dio; this is an area I've been wanting to explore ! In case anyone's interested, I've just spent 2 hours going through the entire WEEKLY CHEAP SALE list, looking them up on IMDB ! There were a couple of titles I couldn't find, and I stayed away from the horror & martial arts titles (for now !)

    So I've ordered the following 7 discs, all rated 7/10 or higher :

    Emperor And The Assassin
    Running Out Of Time

    and Akira Kurosawa’s :
    Throne of Blood
    Sanjuro
    Ikiru
    High and Low
    Hidden Fortress


    Total of HK$315 = £25 inc P&P :smashin:

    Nice selection! If you change your mind about the horror I can heartily recommend Pulse (Kairo) - not violent or bloody but very unsettling and chilling, beautifully photographed and acted. More in the spirit of Ring than violent horrors.

    Never been stopped - but I've never ordered more than the customs value in one go.

    Ive ordered from them lots of times including orders over £18. They mark the package as gift and only put the actual cost of the dvd's on the customs form not the total with p&p. Never had an order take more than 4 days to get to me. I already have the Akira Kurosawa ones and Pulse but i ordered Kakashi, Uzumaki and The Magnificent Butcher.

    Throne of Blood & Hidden Fortress are classics, not sure if HF has a George Lucas interview on the film as my R2 copy has, Star Wars is loosely based on this.

    I like DDD house, got Dark Water DTS version shipped over, total was about £4.50!

    Goods rcvd today via registered post, after just 7 days.

    Discs wrapped & mint (but rattling loose within cases); packaging good and rather quaint - looked like a parcel from a (conscientious) friend, with stamps and customs label !

    No customs involvement as expected - marked as GIFT, with the correct HK$ price less postage (is limit £18 ?).

    Thanks again Dio ! Now ... where's that weekly sale list ... !

    Battle Royale is on the Weekly Cheap Sale - has anyone got the region 3 disc of this? Is it identical to the UK theatre release?

    I had the R3 HK Battle royale dvd - good quality (i think its better than the Tartan Ltd ed i 've got now) The DTS is very nice as well, Eng subs are clear. Well worth the money.

    The R3 Battle Royale is pretty good quality - it was one of the first HK discs I bought. At that price its a steal.

    Thanks for your comments. Are there any Region 3 DVDs that should be avoided?

    Its usually the case with their weekly cheap sales - Once they are gone that's your lot.

    Has anyone else been asked to send a photo/scan of the front of their credit card on a large first order ? mine came to a bit over 800 HK$, i obliged, but i was wondering whether this was normal ? I wonder if they're going to manage to get 16 DVDs through customs without being stopped !!

    dont order large numbers of dvds - do 4 smaller orders of 4 discs in each order - low chance of customs.
    How much was the 18 dvd order?? because dddhouse do put the total on the customs note so if its over £18 (aprox $225HK) theres a very good chance of it being stopped.
