Yes, we know about Dutch FilmWorks. We even have a multi-page thread about their 1408 release.

Tha was true up until the release of 1408 (which is practically flawless for an import).

[Mod Note: I made this a sticky and generalized the subject. It's about time there's a sticky for imports. It's worked well in the HD-DVD forum. Also, remember no "affiliate" type links - it's a quick way for permanent ban from AVS .... larry]



Just a few of the many titles from xploitedcinema.com:

Beowulf
Animated Transformers
The Illusionist
The Island
1408
Afro Samurai
Oldboy
Perfume
Revolver

I've never ordered from Exploited, but as I understand these are all imports already imported into U.S. So, just the usual U.S. shipping rates and 3-5 days shipping.

Sisyphus,

They are a great outfit. I have used them about 5 times. Great service. Yesterday, I ordered Beowulf and The Exorcism of Emily Rose.

Don't forget Almost Famous and The Seventh Seal. And they can get the Australian and German "uncut" editions of Casino Royale.

Men in Black is now listed for release in the UK on June 16th 2008, along with So I Married an Axe Murderer.

The Bone Collector will be released by Sony on June 2nd, 2008 - this title is a Universal Studios HD DVD only release in the USA.

At Format War Central
post #11 of 1368
Yeah, Axe Murderer is a must have in my book.

I also see that Men in Black has German release June 5th, a week earlier!

We must be due for a US announcement.

I'm glad MIB is coming out, felt like I was the only person who wanted it. It's an all-timefavourite of mine, hopefully Fox makes it worth buying.

Hi all,

Sony Pictures in Australia have set June 25th for Men In Black - so you guys can probably expect it around then too!

Your link is broken - probably a good thing since it contains an affiliate tag and would have gotten you in trouble

Here is a 'distilled' list of the titles in the promotion from the Blu-ray Stats Newslog that make sense to US people to import (with the links removed so as not to offend our moderators):

Quote:


The relevant, region free and not yet available in the US' titles are as follows: Starship Troopers, The Island, Almost Famous, Face/Off, Air Force One, The Tudors Complete BBC Series 1, Starsky and Hutch, Cinderella Man, Bruce Almighty, Welcome to the Jungle (The Rundown), Scary Movie 4, Thirteen Ghosts and The Exorcism Of Emily Rose.

They could just release these two and I'd be happier than a pig in...well, you know.
post #24 of 1368
Most of the list is terrible. There are some standouts though... Ghostbusters 1&2, Labyrinth, Dark Crystal and Dr. Strangelove... Probably pick up The Missing as well. Everything is is a pass though.
post #25 of 1368
Too bad it's probably the horrendous remake of Rollerball and not the original James Caan version.
post #26 of 1368
I was perusing Amazon Japan today when I noticed that Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is available for preorder on Blu-ray. That will be an option for people who didn't pick up the HD DVD. Nice cover art, also.
post #27 of 1368
post #28 of 1368
I wouldn't expect The Dark Crystal until the sequel is out, next year.

I have to echo the sentiment that I really hope this isn't a peek at our upcoming catalog title schedule in the US. I think Ghostbusters and Dr. Strangelove are the only 2 I would buy, out of those controlled by Sony here. For some reason I haven't seen In the Line of Fire though, so I guess I'd better check that out.
post #29 of 1368
I just placed my order for Battle of Britain and A Bridge To Far box set from Exploited Cinema. I was disappointed when it was delayed last year. Tony has it in stock now. I believe this is the Japan release. It has DTS-HD MA in English.
post #30 of 1368
I see Xpolited has The Jackal in Blu from Germany, I had posted this question a couple weeks ago elsewhere. Has anybody bought this yet to advise on pq??
