Have you ordered many DVDs from this place before? If you have, that might help your case. If that doesn't work, I guess you could write a nice letter to the studio thoroughly explaining what happened.

What has the store to gain by NOT believing you? You tell them, they send you a replacement and a mailing label - you return yours and they send it back to the studio. If the store doesn't take your word and doesn't help you, I'd avoid using them in the future.

I had that problem twice before. One was for Cannibal Holocaust and there was no disc and no shrink wrap! I emailed the contact guy at the online company I ordered it from and he sent me my disc ASAP! Also, I ordered the COSMOS box set from another online company and it was missing the last disc. Again, I contacted them via email and I practically had the dvd before I got off the phone. I don't think you'll have any problems getting a replacement disc. By the way here were the two online companies: LMV.com DVDplanet.com

Reason number 1001 not to buy JP3.
Matrix Reloaded isn't deep at all. It's a simple, rehashed concept dressed up in fancy words and designer outfits...

Slightly O/T. Has anyone brought a box set and discovered that one of the disks was bad? Wouldn't that be a mess sending them all back, especially if the singles were not available? Glenn

You know if it ever got to that stage, something gonna get laid. Posted Image.

Depending on the company, a kind and polite voice with the truth (the truth is always the same) usually gets positive results.

That would never happen to me and i'll tell you why, I can tell by... #1. The weight. For some strange reason I have a very unique ability to tell if their is a disc inside the case by the weight. #2. The sound. If you slightly shake a dvd case, you can kinda hear the disc shifting on it's hub inside. I would have known it was empty before ever opening it.

This has happened to me once before too -- I took the empty case back to Best Buy, where they looked at me skeptically for a moment, but did let me exchange it for another one.
