Are there any other shipment methods from Amazon besides the "standard" & "expedited" ? Other than the Priority courier, do they have "registered" services? I don't mind paying a bit more to get the packages registered. The building I work at has so many "thieves" that its almost a guaranteed loss if the packages are not registered.

Hi,

I believe if u use expediated - then u nid a signature to collect de package..

Amazon has great CS n if indeed u dont recieve ur package - n after a standard period, u can request a 2nd shipment n they'll entertain this for free..

Why de hangups abt non delivery.. Like I said amz.com has great CS.. they literally guarantee receipts of item/s tat u order..

I hv nvr gone for other than de standard shippin (in my 2 odd yrs of buyin from them) n even thou' there was one or 2 instances where my packges arrived late (veri late, sumtin like 2.5mths late - to the extent that I got another for free), they did reach my hands eventually..

If there is anythin to complain abt amz is tat their shippin charges are a tad exp..
Other than tat, they are an exemplary online store

Never tried expedited shipping, but I thought it still needs signature (with local pos), the difference is that it takes just almost as long as standard shipping to arrive.

Even without Amazon Prime account, still can get free standard US delivery which takes about 5 days. But I think the minimum purchase is US$30.

And yes, Amazon's CS is the best on this planet. thumbup.gif

Aha..

Then I m not wrong after all.. I tot I remember amz shippin (nope I didnt opt for tis but amz upgr cos of an exceptionally long wait for stock) for me using tis n then had to sign for it..
N ya its like a coupla days diff only as compared to standrd shippin - not worth xtra for tis IMO..

Troy Director's Cut - almost grainless, blacks are dead-on, colours are rich, almost all scenes look 3-dimensional... pop up to you, as though you're in that scene. I can enjoy all these even though my LCD's not Full HD!

Transformers on the other hand, while the daylight/robot scenes are dead-sharp; is heavily-grained especially interior & night scenes... but like many others will say - this gritty-grainy look is intended to be there; and also the extensive use of filters which is fine for the tone & feel of this movie, I guess...  wink.gif

But if to compare, Troy the clear winner here.. to me, at least; as a Hi-Def PQ demo disc...  thumbup.gif
ps - Diane Kruger's (.Y.) could've been sharper...   drool.gif  biggrin.gif

I dont have Troy bd .. Trnfrmrs is okla.. but wat has struck me as a fine visual is a non descrpt title called Immortal Beloved (kinda biopic of Ludwig Von Beethoven) - man the vdo there is really really gud..

Well..

I dont blame you.. Coraline isnt exactly a top tier ttl, is it?? But HDef digest rvws are pretty gud so m tryin tis out..

Like I said amz shpg chrgs normally adds USD5 (or even more if u order less than 5 ttls) so a cheapo like me adds all tat up..

I have 2 questions:-

1)  No one's really interested in the current LOTR BD Trilogy.  Will there be an Extended Version/Director's Cut soon that I don't know of?

2)  Star Wars I - III.  Its not out yet, right?  Why so, esp. so long after its premiere?
*
1. I am intrsted in de Ext Ed only.. De Bd version of tis will eventually be out..

2. George Lucas has always been kinda slow in implementin new format for his classics.. Again itll evetually end up with a HD version..

After sayin tat there are a lot of old favs tat might get a rebuy for instance Back to the Future series ; Indy 1 - 3..

Still waiting for the package. By next week, it will be exactly 12 weeks since the order was shipped! New release already become classic by the time I get it. I wrote to Amazon Ca 2 weeks ago and was told that the estimated arrival is week August 3! So if by next week no news, I will most likely ask for refund.

My recommendation, if you want to buy from Amazon Ca, DON'T!!!
*
FWIW,

It normally takes 10wks for canadian post to reach Mal..

Erh.. u can return de items in question but u ll lose out on de waitin period tat u hv uh waited for de items to arrive n also amz will only credit your refund only after rec't of your items (prbbly another long wait..).. u cannot ask for a refund if item has shipped..

I agree on amz.ca lousy postal shippers .. try n buy those ttls tat are dirt cheap which incidentally means old ttls, so u wont be so kancheon to watch wan..

Not sure about Amazon CA, but despite the T&C, Amazon US will refund you if you never receive the package within the estimated delivery dates and considered lost. I've received refunds many times before, but now I only use DHL so my package never lost. Their CS is the best I've ever experienced.

Hi,

It shld be de same as they are of de same parent co.. normally amz will reship a lost package and not always give you an option to choose on whether you want a refund or otherwise.. at least tat has happened to me.. but its still at no cost to us, so its still gud..

U r statin DHL has great customer svc or Amazon.com.. if amz then I agree 110% but DHL .. uhm tat co , I hv bad experiences la - total opposite is wat it is to me..

Hi..

I hv rec'd unsealed 'new' bds tis way n on further enquiries rec'd a standard reply in tat their(amz.uk) suppliers sumtimes delivers them tat way and is not a standard practice for amz.uk to seal all new discs.. As there were no other prblms( disc was unblemished..) I let it go at tat..

FWIW, de us region bds all hv de top sticker to signify tat its sealed, even if they dont cum shrinkwrapped..

Hi..

Heres a short rvw I did sumwhere else..

user posted image

Tis is my 2nd cp of NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN .. D 1st was a d5 durian which I thorougly enjoyed n when I saw de BD version on offer at USD13..

All 3 main characters in tis flick are great - Josh Brolin who plays Llewellyn Moss - a hunter who finds a bag full of money after findin a 'drug deal gone wrong' in de middle of de desert.. Sheriff Ed Bell(Tommy Lee Jones) a tired-out soon to be retired sheriff who trails de destruction of de other 2 men.. N las but not least Anton Chigurh(pronounced as sugar) debatably one of de most terrifyin killers ever to grace de screen (Javier Bardem on a bad hair day - he got an oscar for tis..) he uses a variety of ways to end peoples lives but de most innovative(on film anyway) is de compressed air 'puncher-thingy' which apprently is de normal way to kill livestock in USA .. its quite cool really and its wonderfully portrayed in tis flick wif wonderful efx..

VDO is jus gorgeous wif de texan landscape as background - breathtakin..
ODO is lossless - gorgeous too wif everytin(surrounds/bass) workin when needed
4.5*
PS Id given it a 5* if only it ended better - I mean wif all Llewelyns effort..
