Ha, ha, yes!
I use DVD Planet for a considerable time already (formerly Digital Eyes). I ordered it just over two weeks ago!

Currently, the have some problems listing all HD DVD releases and in time (just like Amazon has), but apart from that specific problem, they are consistently good.

Nor Aeon Flux, nor Sahara... Amazon doesn't list Aeon Flux either, although they do have the BD-version now. I really think there's something wrong with one of the 'info lines' to retailers. Cees

I thought DVD Planet was Ken Crane's.

Technically it was, but it was sold a few years ago to the company that owns DDD and Digital Eyes now. They used to be my main supplier for LD's and DVD's till that switch, but that was handled so horribly back in '03 that I will never order from them again. Hopefully they've gotten back on track, but that bad taste in my mouth is still there.

Ahhh. I remember Ken Cranes well. Drove out there the day DVD's were first released to pick up whatever they had in stock sense Phoenix, AZ. was not part of the initial DVD release market. They were also my main source of LD's.

I was a big customer of Ken Crane's in the old laserdisc days. They had everything, and laser was not easy to find at local B&M retailers. Every wednesday, UPS would leave one of those LP sized cardboard mailers inside my front door with the latest releases from Ken Crane's. When they changed hands, things were never the same for mail order.

I was a customer of Digital Eyes since 1997 and generally very happy with them.

In this case, the "merger" was about 6 months ago, and I must say it went very smoothly for DE-customers. The new company adopted the web-site mainly as it was before with DE. Some things have changed, but many didn't for me.

So, I for one, am a very happy customer there still. Posted Image
Buy a lot there.

Just to let you guys know that Amazon shipped 12 Monkeys, Spartacus and The Thing today. I paid $19.95 each less the 10% discount and opted for free shipping....Maybe they are getting better at assessing demand.

My order for The Thing and Slither isn't scheduled to ship until next week. Bummer, as I was looking forward to watching these this weekend with Halloween approaching. I'll be picking up 12 Monkeys this week in stores, however. Posted Image

Will Superman Returns be the first film that was shot digitally released on HD-DVD? Just curious.

Either way it ought to be breathtaking in HD. Posted Image

I think CLICK was shot digitally(although that one is on Blu-Ray). Perhaps CORPSE BRIDE.

Didn't they used to sell laserdiscs back in the day as well? They were under a different name a while back, I think H20 or something to that effect? Yeah, they were great and I've ordered discs new and used from them with no problems as well. So glad that things are working out for Mark over there (I believe he's still with the company now).

Didn't know Click was shot digitally. Neat.

I was referring to live-action digital films. I should have made that clear. My bad. Posted Image

A gentleman who works for DVD Planet posted on the DVD Talks board that Warners is not allowing pre-orders for SR until the 31st. Hopefully all of the major etailers will have it up for pre-order this Tuesday.

Is there a problem with Superman Returns? And if so is it only with one format or both?
