    i've had no problems whatsoever with movietyme. after express.com went belly up they became my region 1 supplier and have been very pleased with their service. i even had almost famous delivered 2 days after ordering it!! however, the only problems i have had have been with the post office. i ordered the region 1 close encounters and crouching tiger and after 3 weeks of waiting i went to the my local post office to see if was there. the day after, they arrived through my door having been postmarked 4 days after ordering! so the problem may not be with movietyme but with the postal service.
    hope this helps.
    i know what its like waiting for dvds..... :mad:

    Leon,

    I know it is frustrating having to wait, but the dts -es disc was a limited press compared to the DD version. I know some people are now finding it hard to track copies down. Hang in there it is worth the wait for that surround track, whilst the movie is missable.

    Good luck,

    Phil, :)

    Hi Leon (What a fun site you have!) :)

    After buying my Denon AVC-A1SE early in June I just HAD to have all the DTS-ES 6.1 Discrete Discs available to hear things at their best, so I ordered the DTS version of The Haunting from Movietyme on June 12th. I had e-mail confirmation of shipping on the 13th and I received my disc on the 21st of June! It all went smoothly for me. Play 247 could not supply the DTS version of this disc, only the DD 5.1, Region 1 version.

    I was definitely pleased with their service but I must admit that I haven't ordered from them before.

    Regards

    Jim :D

    PS I actually had about 6 friendly e-mails from them including 4 replies to queries I posed!

    For example:-
    "Hi, thanks for the mail, I am not sure we can supply this disc for you as I think it is only DTS 5.1 not 6.1. Do you still require it if this is the case?

    Kind regards

    Norm"

    I only bought it for the DTS-ES Discrete 6.1 sound track and didn't know what the film was about anyway. I rather enjoyed it actually! You should have seen my mate jump when the skeleton jumped out of the ashes in the fireplace!!

    Regards

    Jim :D

    Must say that www.discemporium have NEVER let me down.

    Indeed I don't ever record a bad thing said about them on this forum except for their higher prices.

    :( My first experience with this firm is not good. Ordered a disc from them almost 3 weeks ago. Not a sniff. Emailed them. Not a sniff. STILL WAITING

    Moral of the story: Use www.play247.com if its in stock its with you in 3-4 days :cool:
    I've only got myself to blame :)

    I have never had any problems with movietyme. I have used them for over two years now. The only problem is that delivery is slightly slower than play247 (who are my main supplier of dvd's). But movietyme do more limited edition and hard to get dvd's than play do.:cool:
