Think i'm going to risk getting 3 at once although i'm wondering if i'm working it all out correctly

If i buy £30.00 worth of DVDs i'm guessing if i get caught for VAT it would be £6.00 plus a Post office charge £8.00

Add the postage on - it's not used when deciding if the charge applies but, if it does, then the calculation is done on the total.

Also wonderful to finally see Rosemary`s Baby being released.

Does anyone know what the import duty percentage is on DVDs from USA - UK. I know it can change but a rough idea from the label of a recent(ish) package should tell you the charges, yes?

There's no duty, it's VAT - so a standard 20%.

I thought you had to pay both. Is there any major disadvantage to buying, say 12 titles, to 2-3? If you're caught VAT is % and then there's that basic PO charge, is it not better in the long run to get as much at once? I just want to check there isn't a charge I'm forgetting or that applies to orders of a certain amount that I'm not aware of.

Is there any chance you guys will be releasing any more of Hitchcock's public domain catalogue, specifically the original The Man Who Knew Too Much? I have been knocked flat by your Blu-rays of both The 39 Steps and The Lady Vanishes.

Watched the blu-ray of Blow Out tonight:

Blow Out
The last time I saw this DePalma film it was when I taped it from tv on a worn-out VHS tapel. At the time (about 8 years ago) I didn`t really like it.
That the medium on wich you see a movie can make such a big difference is proven here once again, now that I watched the film on Criterion blu-ray. An almost perfect transfer with beautiful covers that bring across that unique `80s atmosphere perfectly and the amazing soundtrack that adds even more to that atmosphere (something that is really important in this film, of course) makes you get involved in Travolta`s job as a soundman.
Speaking of Travolta, here he gives one of his best performances and of course DePalma goes shopping in his favorite films and favorite director`s work, as we know from him he will.
An excellent conspiracy theory/paranoia film in an amazing blu-ray from Criterion.

8,0/10

Get off, the Shockiku set is mine! And the Takashi Shimura interview might tempt me to Rashomon.

Yesterday I watched the Royal Tenenbaums blu-ray

The Royal Tenenbaums
Wes Anderson`s masterful portrait of a disfunctional family is hard to describe. It`s at the same time a hartwarming comedy and a tearjerker. Anderson knows how to find that balance very well and makes sure that neither is too much. Right at the moment that you feel the drama is becoming too much you`ll get a lovely comic scene and vice versa.
In this he gets help from a brilliant all-star cast who all give career-best performances, with Ben Stiller and Gene Hackman leading the pack. Also that typical Wes Anderson style with a warm colour pallet is present and gives the film a nice atmosphere.

This only was the first time that I saw this but I do have this feeling that this is a typical film that gets better with every viewing. That`s why this excellent Criterion blu-ray will end up in my player more often in the future.
So far this isn`t my favorite Anderson but that could very well change in the future...
Go, Mordecai!

8,0/10

Today I finally watched the Godzilla blu-ray:

Gojira (Godzilla)
The mother of all monsterfilms has a slow start. Therefor I didn`t really like the first part and it took a while for me to get into the film. The second part of the film on the other hand was really good. With, especially for that time, great (miniature) effects and a story that even has some drama in it and is a good complaint against atomic- and other weapons of mass destruction.
I am curious though how the Americanised version, wich is also featured on the Criterion blu-ray release, will work out.

A WONDERFUL december line-up:







Finally we get the Brazil blu-ray (a 2 disc set!) and the Qatsi trilogy, been waiting forever for that. And curious about Nolan`s Following, have always wanted to see that one.

Not a fan. I'll probably pick up the excellent Plein Soleil though (sorry, just can't get used to the translated title and it was released over here under the proper one so I'm not sure why, in this case, Criterion aren't using it.

Slightly interested in Purple Noon, i should probably watch Brazil again, i'd guess Following is in the collection down to the name of the director not the quality of the film and judging by the trailers The Qatsi trilogy is something i'd absolutely hate.

God that post sounds like one of the ungrateful whiners at the Criterion forums In truth i'm glad there's nothing i'm overly excited about i already have too many Criterion to buy and with rumors of 4 Months, 3 Weeks, And 2 Days, Breaking The Waves and Y Tu Mama Tambien for 2013 there's plenty more to come.

Following

I won't be double-dipping for Brazil which I think is a great film. For me the Qaatsi's are pretty but not much beyond that.

As with Ultimo there isn't remotely a 'wow' in this lot - but I'll be getting some of the earlier releases on the new release page mentioned earlier in this thread

Ah ok
I will be double dipping on Brazil, got the 3 disc release as well.
There might not be a "wow" but there surely is a "HELL YES!!" in this lot for me

Hallelujah. Time to invest in a multi region player methinks.

I'm assuming the special features are standard def if they're fitting it all on 2 discs or have they dropped anything from the 3 disc DVD set?
