    Their website claims the DVD's they sell are "ALL REGION/NTSC, official releases, not bootlegs or VCDs."

    They have ONCE UPON A TIME IN AMERICA, however I cannot tell if it is letterboxed or anamorphic.

    Does anyone have any info on them?

    ...ahh... the Brazilian OUATIA is quite 'legit'... it is also full-screen, not letterboxed... was going to order it, but then I figured I'd hang on to my UK, p&s, PAL, mono, two-LD set until such time as a newly remastered, anamorphic 1.66:1 version comes out... somewhere... he said... hoping against hope...

    They're legit and not bad to deal with -- but be sure to ask about things like widescreen, anamorphic, etc, because a surprising number of their disks are pan&scan.

    I've bought from them, but probably won't again. This is mainly because of the full screen issue, but I also had problems with poor cases, loose discs, and a general lack of quality feel to the product.

    When I bought they were also running auctions on E-bay, and when my bid didn't win they sent an e-mail offering to sell for my losing bid. If they're still doing this it could be a good way to save some money if you want to give them a try.
