    Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia
    Bad Education
    Hoosiers SE
    Hotel Rwanda
    Tae Guk Gi: The Brotherhood of War: Special Edition (waiting over 2 months, and a popular title)
    Rocky Anthology (1 month and still waiting)


    What I am most worried about is that most of these dvds were preordered, now on release we are still waiting.

    The Outer Limits box set (on order)
    Blade Trinity (in transit)
    The Amityville Collection (on order)

    I ordered these on the 24th/25th of Feb so it's going on for 2 months..

    The Amityville Collection really should have been shipped by now, it was 'pre-order', then 'on order', then in 'transit', and now it's back to 'on order'

    I've got 5 dvds still on-order, which I ordered on boxing day (4 FU@!ing months ago!!!)

    I would have fought some of the newer titles (such as BLADE: TRINITY) would have moved quicker than the more older/obscure titles which is the kind of dvds that I ordered

    really disappointed, even if the prices are cheap

    I had the Amityville boxset on pre-order with dvdsoon as well (about same order date as you)
    Cancelled last week, and re-ordered with Playusa.com (£14.99) and they delivered 5 days later.

    Dvdsoon have completely lost the plot IMHO

    Just thought I'd check as myself and one other member on here have had a problem with the third disc on "Outer Limits - The Original Series Volume 2".

    By the way the box you have ordered is one of two released by Koch under limited license from MGM. Can't understand why they've released a complete season 3 box set, yet only a "best of" for seasons 1 & 2, missing out on 22 episodes.

    These releases appear to be Canada only, so I think I'll wait and see if MGM release complete seasons in the USA soon.

    i wasn't sure if it was a "best of" or not cos i found info on it elsewhere which said it was the full season 1 and 2. oh well, for about a tenner i'm not going to complain, i just felt like revisiting some of my youth.

    i also got a 6dvd boxset of a twilight zone remake with KoRn theme music ;) and Forest Whitaker as the narrator for a tenner. it's deliciously cheesy.

    I thought I had been waiting for a bit :suicide: . Ordered 24S1 on 09Apr (missed out on the bargains that were about earlier this year) .Guess I'm gonna have to wait a bit longer :eek: .
    Is it worth emailing and asking how long they think it might be ?

    Pre-ordered Blade Trinity (as one of my free iCard choices). This is being released in 26/4/05. Soon say it was shipped yesterday (22/4/05):smashin:


    However still waiting on the following:

    Tank Girl (on order)

    Blade Runner (on order)

    Maximum Overdrive (In Transit)

    Bubba Ho-tep (on order) (Wish I could swap this for something else so I can get the R2 edition instead! but it was one of my free iCard choices)

    I was waiting on the R1 version of Eraser. It was placed well over a month ago, which for such a mainstream film to still be out of stock on is a little strange. However, after seeing this thread I have been and cancelled the order, and put it through DVD Pacific instead - from whom i've had perfect and swift service.

    The one thing I have only just found out from cancelling the order is that they put the cancelled fee into 'credit', rather than refunding (DVD Pacific, and others I use, don't even charge you until the item is ready for dispatch). So, you're sort of stuck re-ordering from them, which I have - making sure it wasn't showing low or no stock.

    I have had Frasier Season 4 in and out of transit for over a month while the page shows in stock within 72 hrs. I am trying DVDimport instead, shipped order within 1 day but has not arrived yet, free shipping and it's been 14 days and waiting :confused:

    you can have that money refunded to your credit card, but it takes 3-4 weeks and you probably won't get back what you paid due to the exchange rate fluctuations and bank conversion charges.

    Marc, thanks for the info. I'd taken the refund-as-a-credit at face value, rather than checking the T's & C's. I've already put the credit to another film - but if that doesn't come, then at least i'll know I can get a proper refund :)
