Så.... portoen er billigere via Ebay eller hvad er fordelen?
Edit: har lige tjekket et par animationstitler, jeg var interesseret i, og de var noget dyrere på Ebay end på DDs eget site, selv om de stod for salget begge steder.

Jeg har brugt amazon.co.uk for de få titler, som udkommer her; fin pris og ingen toldrisiko.

Ellers har de seneste køb været hos bluraysforeveryone.com når de har criterion sale; ikke superbilligt (alt inklusiv er det ca. DKK 200 pr. stk.), men med deres 9-stk. standardforsendelse er jeg aldrig blevet "taget i tolden".

Tak for tips. Jeg har brugt Pacific et par gange, med held. Men min erfaring er, at hvis man bestiller mere end et par titler ad gangen – hvis forsendelsen begynder at ligne en pakke – så falder hammeren. Bluraysforeveryone har jeg også brugt ifm. B&N's halvårssalg, men så pludselig denne sommer begyndte Cliff at sende filmene i pakkeæsker og med Bluraysforeveryone som afsender. Da de blev nakket, lod jeg dem returnere. Og så prøvede han at gensende som privatbrev, men forsendelsen blev nappet igen. Tror, at Pest Nord, har blacklistet ham. Men sig gerne til, hvis nogen af jer fik noget igennem her i december.

Tak for info. Må give den et shot igen om et halvt år. Mistede helt modet over alt bøvlet sidst. Det kørte helt gnidningsfrit med de første 6-8 ordrer, jeg lagde der. Har han droppet papkassemetoden og er gået tilbage til kuvert?

The Umbrellas of Cherboug (1964) - 11. april 2017

The angelically beautiful Catherine Deneuve was launched to stardom by this dazzling musical heart-tugger from Jacques Demy. She plays an umbrella-shop owner’s delicate daughter, glowing with first love for a handsome garage mechanic, played by Nino Castelnuovo. When the boy is shipped off to fight in Algeria, the two lovers must grow up quickly. Exquisitely designed in a kaleidoscope of colors, and told entirely through lilting songs by the great composer Michel Legrand, The Umbrellas of Cherbourg is one of the most revered and unorthodox movie musicals of all time.

The Young Girls of Rochefort (1967) - 11. april 2017

Jacques Demy followed up The Umbrellas of Cherbourg with another musical about missed connections and second chances, this one a more effervescent confection. Twins Delphine and Solange, a dance instructor and a music teacher (played by real-life sisters Catherine Deneuve and Françoise Dorléac), long for big-city life; when a fair comes through their quiet port town, so does the possibility of escape. With its jazzy Michel Legrand score, pastel paradise of costumes, and divine supporting cast (George Chakiris, Grover Dale, Danielle Darrieux, Michel Piccoli, and Gene Kelly), The Young Girls of Rochefort is a tribute to Hollywood optimism from sixties French cinema’s preeminent dreamer.

- 2K digital restoration, with 5.1 surround DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack on the Blu-ray
- French television interview from 1966 featuring director Jacques Demy and composer Michel Legrand discussing the music for the film

Woman of the Year (1942) - 18. april 2017

George Stevens’s Woman of the Year, conceived to build on the smashing comeback Katharine Hepburn had made in The Philadelphia Story, marked the beginning of the personal and professional union between Hepburn and Spencer Tracy, who would go on to make eight more films together. This tale of two newspaper reporters who wed and then discover that their careers aren’t so compatible forges a fresh and realistic vision of what marriage can be. The freewheeling but pinpoint-sharp screenplay by Ring Lardner Jr. and Michael Kanin won an Academy Award, and Hepburn received a nomination for her performance. Woman of the Year is a dazzling, funny, and rueful observation of what it takes for men and women to get along—both in the workplace and outside of it.

- New high-definition digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray
- New interview with George Stevens Jr., the director’s son
- New interview with George Stevens biographer Marilyn Ann Moss

Buena Vista Social Club (1999) - 18. april 2017

Traveling from the streets of Havana to the stage of Carnegie Hall, this revelatory documentary captures a forgotten generation of Cuba’s brightest musical talents as they enjoy an unexpected encounter with world fame. The veteran vocalists and instru­mentalists collaborated with American guitarist and roots-music champion Ry Cooder to form the Buena Vista Social Club, playing a jazz-inflected mix of cha-cha, mambo, bolero, and other traditional Latin American styles, and recording an album that won a Grammy and made them an international phenomenon. In the wake of this success, director Wim Wenders filmed the ensemble’s members—including golden-voiced Ibrahim Ferrer and piano virtuoso Rubén González—in a series of illuminating interviews and live performances. The result is one of the most beloved documentaries of the 1990s, and an infectious ode to a neglected corner of Cuba’s prerevolutionary heritage.

DIRECTOR-APPROVED EDITION:

- New high-definition digital transfer, with 5.1 surround DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack on the Blu-ray
- Audio commentary from 1999 featuring director Wim Wenders

Tampopo (1985) - 25. april 2017

The tale of an eccentric band of culinary ronin who guide the widow of a noodle shop owner on her quest for the perfect recipe, this rapturous “ramen western” by Japanese director Juzo Itami is an entertaining, genre-bending adventure underpinned by a deft satire of the way social conventions distort the most natural of human urges, our appetites. Interspersing the efforts of Tampopo (Nobuko Miyamoto) and friends to make her café a success with the erotic exploits of a gastronome gangster and glimpses of food culture both high and low, the sweet, sexy, and surreal Tampopo is a lavishly inclusive paean to the sensual joys of nourishment, and one of the most mouthwatering examples of food on film ever made.

- New 4K digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray
- The Making of “Tampopo,” a ninety-minute documentary from 1986, narrated by director Juzo Itami

Rumble Fish (1983) - 25. april 2017

In this deeply personal tale of estrangement and reconciliation between two rebellious brothers, set in a dreamlike and timeless Tulsa, Francis Ford Coppola gives mythic dimensions to intimate, painful emotions. After releasing the classically styled The Outsiders earlier the same year, the director returned to the work of S. E. Hinton, this time with a self-described “art film for teenagers.” Graced with a remarkable cast headed by Matt Dillon, Mickey Rourke, and Diane Lane; haunting black-and-white visuals that hark back to German expressionism and forward to Coppola’s own Tetro; and a powerful, percussive score by Stewart Copeland that underscores the movie’s romantic fatalism, Rumble Fish pulsates throughout with genuine love and dread.

DIRECTOR-APPROVED EDITION:

- New 4K digital restoration, supervised by director of photography Stephen H. Burum and approved by director Francis Ford Coppola, with 2.0 surround DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack on the Blu-ray
- Alternate remastered 5.1 surround soundtrack, presented in DTS-HD Master Audio on the Blu-ray
- Audio commentary featuring Coppola
- New interviews with Coppola, author and coscreenwriter S. E. Hinton, and associate producer Roman Coppola
- New conversation between Burum and production designer Dean Tavoularis

- French television interview from 1984 with actor Mickey Rourke
- Locations: Looking for Rusty James, a 2013 documentary by Alberto Fuguet about the impact of Rumble Fish
- New piece about the film’s existentialist elements

Jeanne Dielman, 23, quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles (1975) - 9. maj 2017

A singular work in film history, Chantal Akerman’s Jeanne Dielman, 23, quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles meticulously details, with a sense of impending doom, the daily routine of a middle-aged widow (Delphine Seyrig)—whose chores include making the beds, cooking dinner for her son, and turning the occasional trick. In its enormous spareness, Akerman’s film seems simple, but it encompasses an entire world. Whether seen as an exacting character study or one of cinema’s most hypnotic and complete depictions of space and time, Jeanne Dielman is an astonishing, compelling movie experiment, one that has been analyzed and argued over for decades.

- New 2K digital restoration undertaken by the Royal Belgian Film Archive, supervised by director of photography Babette Mangolte, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray
- Autour de “Jeanne Dielman,” a 69-minute documentary—shot by actor Sami Frey and edited by Agnes Ravez and director Chantal Akerman—made during the filming of Jeanne Dielman
- Interviews from 2009 with Akerman and Mangolte
- Excerpt from “Chantal Akerman par Chantal Akerman,” a 1997 episode of the French television program Cinéma de notre temps

Good Morning (1959) - 16. maj 2017

A lighthearted take on director Yasujiro Ozu’s perennial theme of the challenges of intergenerational relationships, Good Morning (Ohayo) tells the story of two young boys who stop speaking as an act of resistance after their parents refuse to buy a television set. Ozu weaves a wealth of subtle gags through a family portrait as rich as those of his dramatic films, mocking the foibles of the adult world through the eyes of his childish protagonists. Shot in stunning Technicolor and set in a suburb of Tokyo where housewives gossip about the neighbors’ new washing machine and unemployed men look for work as door-to-door salesmen, this charming comedy reworks Ozu’s own silent classic I Was Born, But . . . to gently satirize consumerism in postwar Japan.

- New 4K digital restoration from Shochiku Co., with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray
- I Was Born, But . . ., Yasujiro Ozu’s 1932 silent comedy masterpiece, with a score composed by Donald Sosin in 2008

Othello (1952) - 16. maj 2017

Gloriously cinematic despite being made on a tiny budget, Orson Welles’s Othello is a testament to the filmmaker’s stubborn willingness to pursue his vision to the ends of the earth. Unmatched in his passionate identification with Shakespeare’s imagination, Welles brings his inventive visual approach to this enduring tragedy of jealousy, bigotry, and rage, and also gives a towering performance as the Moor of Venice, alongside Suzanne Cloutier as his innocent wife, Desdemona, and Micheál MacLiammóir as the scheming Iago. Shot over the course of three years in Morocco, Venice, Tuscany, and Rome and plagued by many logistical problems, this fiercely independent film joins Macbeth and Chimes at Midnight in making the case for Welles as the cinema’s most audacious interpreter of the Bard.

- New, restored 4K digital transfers of two versions of the film, the 1952 European version and the 1955 U.S. version, with uncompressed monaural soundtracks on the Blu-ray
- Audio commentary featuring filmmaker Peter Bogdanovich and Orson Welles scholar Myron Meisel
- Return to Glennascaul, a 1953 short film made by MacLiammóir and actor Hilton Edwards during a hiatus from shooting Othello
- New interview with Welles biographer Simon Callow
- New interview with Welles scholar François Thomas on the differences between the two versions

Dheepan (2015) - 23. maj 2017

With this Palme d’Or–winning drama, which deftly combines seemingly disparate genres, French filmmaker Jacques Audiard cemented his status as one of the titans of contemporary world cinema. In an arresting performance, the nonprofessional actor Antonythasan Jesuthasan (himself a former child soldier) stars as a Tamil fighter who, along with a woman and child posing as his wife and daughter, flees war-torn Sri Lanka only to land in a Paris suburb riddled with drugs. As the makeshift family embarks on a new life, Dheepan settles into an intimate social-realist mode, before tightening, gradually and organically, into a dynamic turf-war thriller, as well as an unsettling study of the psychological aftereffects of combat. Searing and sensitive, Audiard’s film is a unique depiction of the refugee experience as a continuous crisis of identity.

DIRECTOR-APPROVED SPECIAL EDITION

- High-definition digital master, with 5.1 surround DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack on the Blu-ray
- Audio commentary from 2015 featuring director Jacques Audiard and coscreenwriter Noé Debré
- New interview with Audiard

Ghost World (2001) - 30. maj 2017

Terry Zwigoff’s first fiction film, adapted from a cult-classic comic by Daniel Clowes, is an idiosyncratic portrait of adolescent alienation that’s at once bleakly comic and wholly endearing. Set during the malaise-filled months following high-school graduation, Ghost World follows the proud misfit Enid (Thora Birch), who confronts an uncertain future amid the cultural wasteland of consumerist suburbia. As her cynicism becomes too much to bear even for her best friend, Rebecca (Scarlett Johansson), Enid finds herself drawn to an unlikely kindred spirit: a sad-sack record collector many years her senior (Steve Buscemi). With its parade of oddball characters, quotable, Oscar-nominated script, and eclectic soundtrack of vintage obscurities, Ghost World is one of the twenty-first century’s most fiercely beloved comedies.

DIRECTOR-APPROVED SPECIAL EDITION

- New, restored 4K digital transfer, supervised by writer-director Terry Zwigoff, with 5.1 surround DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack on the Blu-ray
- Audio commentary featuring Zwigoff, comic-book creator and screenwriter Daniel Clowes, and producer Lianne Halfon
