    underworld can be found at www.dddhouse.com for £6.82,not including postage which is £2.15 for a single disk,but the more disks you buy the cheaper the postage is.
    They also have......
    spy kids 2 at £2.87
    rush hour 2 at 2.15
    jay and silent bob at £2.15
    jeepers creepers at £2.50
    fear dot com at £2.15
    american Psycho at £2.15
    ......and more at very good prices,not a great selection though,and the covers are half chinese half english.
    I'd recommend dddhouse,i've never had any problems with them.

    I buy loads from this website (about 5 per week). Delivery usually takes about a week. Customer service is great as well when things have gone wrong. An example was when I opened one of the discs up there wasn't a dvd inside. I received a replacement 3 days later by recorded delivery. Can't fault their prices or service but it can be a lottery on the quality of the films in some instances though. Major titles (with the exception of Bullit proof monk - crap film anyway) have been comparable to their western counterparts though.:D

    just bought:-

    Cherry Falls $30.0
    Deathwatch $30.0
    PTU (dts) $80.0
    Spider $30.0
    Virgin Suicides The $30.0
    Halloween Resurrection $30.0
    Underworld $95.0
    Ghost World $30.0
    Freddy Vs Jason $105.0

    Sub Total: 460.0
    Total Qty: 9
    Shipping Cost: 170.0
    Discount: -0.0
    Grand Total: HK$ 630.0

    thats about £44 (less than a fiver per disc) bargain
    :clap:

    I've always paid via my visa debit card or visa cc. It always comes off mine in pounds and shows up as HAUS LTD never appear to be charged for exchange rates etc and have not been clobbered by customs (touch wood). The package is usually marked up at below the value we get charged vat on anyhow.

    Plus you get the bonus of your parcel arriving tied up with string. How many suppliers do that nowadays? ;)

    Great supplier. Highly recommended.

    I'm tempted to bag a few here myself, my main concern would be the quality of the movie, although I did get T3 region 3 recently and the quality was excellent. I suppose it should be good with Underworld, anybody any thoughts about this?

    Yeah, I was worried about that. I will have to wait and see. Even if there is a stiff customs charge, it is still a bit of a bargain. :)

    I usually get away with buying five at a time. 17 might be pushing it a bit , but , in my experience they generally split an order down into bundles of up to six anyway.

    Regarding my order posted above, I received today the following:

    "Hi,

    we need to identify your credit card,

    hope you understand that internet shopping has

    so many fraud order now, we need to protect both party,

    Anyone else ever had this?

    And do they mean the middle 8 digits of the credit card number?

    I can't remeber which compnay it was now - but the first time I ordered with them they also wanted extra security info - I had to send them a copy of any electronic bills that I had as proof of id - I think I sent them a copy of my mobile phone bill.

    As for the quality of R3 - I'm tempted to order with these guys but I am also sceptical about these R3 releases. I've only had 2 in the past and they were both terrible. Memento was in dolby surround and a terrible letterbox transfer and Brotherhood of the Wolf was also missing Dolby Digital. This has put me off somewhat.

    You have to weigh up the cost benefit over the likely quality of the disc on each occasion to see if your getting value for money. Most of the Western titles I have bought (with the exception of a few) the pq and sq have been comparable to REG1&2 discs imo. A lot of the asian titles are not available on any other region so you sometimes have to put up with lower than average pq and sound.
    For the prices your paying I perfectly happy to give them my business and if the disc is not up to scratch and it's a must have film then I'd probably purchase a quality REG1 or 2 disc if it became available in that format.:smashin:

    Its definately wise to be very wary - the cheapo Hollywood titles in R3 tend to be a far lesser quality than the main regions. They could be on DVD-5 discs, 4:3 or letterbox only transfers, totally extraless or just poor transfers.

    Some of course though are similar A/V wise - worth maybe posting at www.asiandvdguide.com 's message board if you really want to find out more details on a DVD
