Probably the wrong place for this but. Who here has imported Blu's from Amazon before? I wanna get In Bruges and its like $40. I haven't seen a release date for the US yet so I dunno if I should get it or wait. What do you guys think?
 
iv imported from amazon in america before so i assume its the same for you importing from the uk. i had no problems, dvds took about 2 weeks to get here. if you can wait the 2 weeks then all should be fime :D check ebay maybe you can get it cheaper

our US retail isnt is pretty either ... cypher in our current economic climate and im sure it pretty much equals the same :p

27.99 retail new release.

you can order from foreign amazon sites for only 14.99 shipping with no maximum ... thats when group buys come in handy ...
