    I'm considering ordering dvds from Malaysia such as Jurassic Park III.

    This film is not released in USA region 1 until December and yet this person can offer 7-9 days delivery!

    Can anyone explain if it is correct that this film has been released in Asia before America?

    He claims all films are genuine and brand new, either region 0 or 1.

    I think you find that the R1 release in Dec will be the first .

    Sounds like a pirate dvd to me if it is R0.

    TFraser,

    This "person" sounds very dodgy, and could be selling you anything, on a DVD. Personally, unless you know this person, as well as you know your own family, then I'd avoid anything that you can't see or try out for yourself.

    Stick to Region 1 or 2 DVD's from some of the many reliable e-tailers/DVD importation firms.

    Don't buy the R0 version of JP3. It only runs for 60 mins which means huge chunks have been cut out.

    The sound quality is extremely poor (although the picture is not bad).

    Oh, I almost forgot - "So my friend tells me" :D

    It's not me, it's not me .... [​IMG]

    Anyhow, there are indeed some "local productions" (R0) around before the official release of the titles in other parts of the world. (Normally hollywood titles are first to be released as R1 in the US.)

    We had some discussions around here about those discs in terms of quality and origin, just search a bit ... and don't spend more than GBP5 including postage because they only cost MYR13 in Malaysia (+MYR7.40 for one disc by airmail).
