    It's not often you get a company who does everything right first time. Just got a call to confirm my mistaken order for the DTS Braveheart (DD only), and also a quick lowdown on the potentially pirated American Psycho going about.
    I'm very happy there are still people out there who care about their job and their customers.
    I've been known for getting into trouble for slagging dodgy retailers, so I thought it was time to praise a good one.

    Well I'm not too sure they're that great!

    I'm still waiting for my Platoon and Nashville.

    (I'm also waiting for 2 titles ordered 24 June).

    They got my Jaws to me quick, but I expect this every order because they are more expensive than where I'd normally shop.

    I emailed them enquiring (last week) and I got a reply that "most" of my DVDs were on their way.

    Whatever the f*uck that means.

    I find e-mailing most companies a pain in the butt, usually if it's important I'll just call them to settle it quickly.
    FYI, I spoke to them yesterday and they were dispatching BraveHeart there and then, and T2 in the next couple of days. Can't wait.

    I got my copy of Nashville this morning. Not quick delivery at all considering it's been out on DVD for at least a week. I could have bought it cheaper elsewhere. This order was the remnants of my cancelled Reel.com order.

    Bad service.

    No excuse, really. I wouldn't have minded if I'd received an email pointing out there were problems -or whatever.

    Hmmmmm

    Platoon arrived this morning.

    Only 2 titles remaining from the emailed 24 June order.

    At Amazon the due titles are listed as "ships in 24hrs" and (to be fair to Movietyme) "ships 2-4 weeks".

    I've not used them myself, but from what I know of them this isn't normal for Movietyme.

    For the record, I got my copy of Platoon from ABsound.com for less than a tenner including delivery and it got to my doorstep from Canada in just 3 days - posted Tuesday night, arrived Friday 8 am. I'll be using them again, dvdpricesearch permitting.

    The best online site for R1 & R2 DVD's is www.play247.com

    The maximum they will charge is £17.99 (this is so that customs can't charge duty).

    They work out of Jersey and when most items are in stock they will be delivered in 2-3 days.

    PS - I can't wait for T2 and X Men and Gladiator

    I'm afraid there is no "Best" all round supplier. I have to spread my purchases as buying everything from Play you do end up considerably out of pocket. They may well be in Jersey, but I've ordered stuff considerably cheaper from the USA (inc delivery) and Play don't really have that big a selection when you consider just how many discs there are available. Mind you, when I want R2, there really is no one better.

    Example -R1 Platoon from Play £14.99 delivered
    R1 Platoon from AB sound under £10 delivered airmail from Canada in 3 days.

    Like I said, it's best to shop around. I wouldn't dream of buying all my discs from one source any more than I buy all my clothes from one shop. Play have never done me wrong, I've ordered loads from them, but for a lot of stuff they can easily be beaten. But then, if you're happy stick with them. Their CD prices are good too....
