I asked my bestfriend rdyent to get me Mission Impossible 3 2-disc edition at 50% off, to my surprise, when i opened it, no discs inside. Hassle ito, kasi kailangan pang bumalik tomorrow to have it replaced.  :'(

kamusta na Doc, malas naman you got the 0-disc edition - hindi lang hassle but think about the parking cost pa.  >:(

Not only the cost of the parking ticket. How about your High Blood explaining that there is no discs inside? Man, I hope they quickly believe you. ???

Ako din babalik. The Interview with the Vampire that I bought wasn't dual layer (as indicated)! >:( Pangit pa ng quality. Parang VCD lang.  ???

Guys, ganito din ba talaga ang R1 counterpart niya?

Bro, interested ako kung mapapaltan mo yung copy mo.  kasi gusto ko ring ibalik yung Interview With The Vampire ko.  Just keep us informed.

I returned my Interview with the Vampire dvd which I bought sometime last year exactly for the same reason.  Low quality video. Too grainy and "maulan".   I reasoned out with the manager that I already have a VCD of Interview and I wanted an upgrade but didn't get it with this dvd.  So single layer din pala ha?  Back then, I still didn't know what single and dual meant.  Anyway, after a lengthy discussion, the manager gave in to my request and had it replaced with Lethal Weapon dvd. 

The better Interview version is the Special Edition ( with some features ) and DTS sound.  Picture is much better( so they say ).  I am still looking for that version.

I responded to this in the R3 thread. The 1-disc R1 SE from 2000 was never released locally.

You are right ran, hassle talaga, buti na lang my wife and sis-in-law went to Cardinal kanina so i asked them to return the "0-disc edition" sa astro. Initially, ayaw pa nga maniwala na walang laman at may take a while bago mapalitan, so my sis-in-law called me up para ako kumausap.

Buti na lang at tumawag ako sa suki kong manager (Kuya Tony) from SM north last night and he endorsed it already para mareplace agad and saved me from hypertension, hehehe... ;)

Good evening PinoyDVD!

Blood Diamond, The Good German, etc. were going for Php299. Pretty good deal. Other Warners were down to Php175 including 2-disc titles like Treasure of Sierra Madre SE, Polar Express, and Poseidon.

I went away empty-handed though. I figured that if it's Php299 today, it'll be Php199 at the next sale. And maybe the Php199/Php175 titles will be down to Php125. ;D

got myself around 30 dvd's. will be listing them later. just wanna ask firewired kung me pag-asa pa kaya makakuha ng jollibee GC's. almost P1,000 worth of GC's din yun ah. magko-closing time na kasi nung nakapunta ako but 4pm pa lang daw kanina ubos na yung GC's. sayang naman.

nyeeh. lalo akong ginutom ah.  :D

heads up lang sa mga gusto pang humabol. tip sa akin nung sales personnel, continuous daw yung sale until today. i was in a hurry kasi nga mag-closing na. so sabi nya sa akin come back na lang daw today since sale pa rin nga daw. you can call them to confirm though.

dun sa mga pupunta pa. tip naman kung nagbalik na ulit yung mga GC's. ke-claim ko talaga yung sa akin.  >:(

grabeh sir gearhead, 30 DVD's in 1 day... you truly are a DVD addict!  :o :D

dapat mo lang na ipaglaban sa Astro Vmall yung Jollibee GC's mo! if they couldn't issue Jollibee GC's then Astroplus GC's nalang for future purchases, after all how many customers do they have who would buy as many DVD's as you did?  8)

haay... just had to grin and bear it na lang talaga. i would have gladly bought the same number of titles even without the GC's, but missing P1,000 worth of langhap sarap leaves a bad taste in the mouth (pun intended).  :(

i could have gone there last friday, but the not so encouraging early feedback made me postpone my trip there in the hope of added titles later.

anyway, thanks mr. hankey. saved me another trip to that traffic infested section of the metropolis.

As per Jimmy, sale is extended until 31 October. :)

Unfortunately, it doesn't look like the Jollibee GCs will be replenished.
