Recieved a CD from Ebay but the case was cracked/damaged on both sides like someone had either been playing football with it or sat on it :( Maybe it had been damaged in transit.

The Great Silence needs no further introductions, everyone knows it's one of the finest spaghetti westerns ever made, but The American probably slipped under many people's radar. Terrific, meditative film that reminded me of Jean Pierre Melville, mismarketed as action movie which it isn't.

Police Story 1 & 2 Boxset (Eureka) - Blu Ray, had to order from a 3rd party as Amazon sold out and I thought they wouldnt get any more copies (the set is limited after all).

There *may* be a replacement program with fixed discs (because of the wrong mono soundtrack etc), lets wait and see what Eureka say

How come you waited until the day of the release to order and then decide to after you've read about the problems with it :drunk:

Despite those problems it seemed like a good release and as Amazon themselves didnt have any in stock, I thought they wouldnt get any more (as it was limited).

Recieved: Snake in the Eagle's Shadow (German Blu Ray). It has English subtitles, and the picture quality looks excellent (though I only sampled the beginning).

By some miracle, I actually received my Perversion Story BD today. By miracle I say, because I spent three weeks wondering what on earth is USPS doing with my package?

I bet they thought "Japan" was some small town in California and didn't realize until this week that it's a foreign country... :lol: :mad:

Recieved: Spongebob: The First 100 Episodes (DVD Box set)
This is a newer re-release (2017 I think), discs are stacked ontop of each other which may be annoying. I thought I'd recieve the original (2009), oh well
All 14 discs are in a slimmer case (about the thickness of 3 UK BD cases it looks like?), so its a good space saver in that way

Recieved: Iron Monkey
There's a sticker on the slipcase (over the barcode) I'm scared to take off, why they didnt shrink wrap the whole package and just the BD inside is anyone's guess.

No, serious. It's on the back of the slipcover (which isnt sealed) and I'm not sure if I can peel it off without ruining the case, thats all.
