  1. Glad to see 3D lovers around. I think nothing can best the last generation of LG 4K Oled with passive glasses. It is bright, no cross talk and 3D motions is solid. Not to mention those glasses are cheap, light and everywhere. For projectors although I already own a few Benqs and JVC but none can give 3D justice. Benqs has smooth motion but lacking brightness behind glasses. JVC has great PQ but 3D motion gives me headache. So I recently bought a high lumen Optoma Laser ZH406 to fill the gap. As a business class PJ the price is reasonably low. It is perfect for 3D , youtube and any day time viewing as expected. But it is not for everyone and every situation as a high brightness DLP will inevitably brings up rainbows.
  2. 5 weeks and over seems to be the norm for shipping from UK these days. Stardog and Onwards are the 2 latest 3D releases. Trolls World Tour is next and so far no further 3D announcement after.
  3. JB is having their 30% off discount today but the 4K Skywalker Saga boxset is always excluded from any of their deals. I have bought them all in BD and 4K before so for no good reason I just pick up their DVD boxset simply for the joy of collection in cheap. There is no bonus just movies itself. The box is very attractive and nicely made.
  4. I bet he means Zavvi. Better use their .au site to pay in AUD. They all ship from UK anyway.
  5. Yes the local one is from JB and they have 30% off just for today so better grab it fast. On the first day of release all 3 of my local JB has no stock so I have to buy online and paid extra for postage.
  6. It is really a bad time for importing discs. Many oversea shops have stop shipping to Australia. Even Amazon USA has block us one more time. Orders took up to 7 weeks to arrive from UK . Still waiting for many. Wonder when we will get back to normal.
  7. Happy to see Waterloo got a local release of 1000 units with deluxe slipcase so as a fan I can't help grabbing one. The Aussie release has a special feature that talks about the background of the movie which is very informative and not on the German import. But missing so many like chapter menu, galleries, foreign languages and subtitles (not even English). So it is hard for me to choose one over the other.
  8. The one I used is https://www.grooves.land and they look exactly the same.
  9. I first bought from jpc but found them messing up my address big time. My shipping address is an Auspost Parcel Locker in the format "Parcel Locker 12345 67890". Somehow I believe their computer system only accept address line starting with street number so they automatically remove all words and cut that into "12345, 67890" and ship my order. I have actually correct that before paying and it shows correctly in their "Order Confirmation" email. But still they ship it to nowhere. What is more confusing is that in their "Order Shipped" email that address line changed again to "67890, 12345". I sent them numerous emails asking about this but never got an explanation of why my address was cut. I did get my refund thou. Funny company. I then buy again from grooves.land the moment I knew jpc mess up and it is good to know grooves.land has tracking while jpc does not. In fact grooves.land is the first I check but they don't have it listed at that moment so I have to buy else where. Now I am waiting for orders from Zavvi UK. What I hate about them is that they only ship disc separately as letter and Auspost won't accept them into Parcel Locker. I have asked them about shipping multiple disc together in a box but their answer is "No". I miss the good old days of shopping from amazon UK. Does anyone knows another UK shops that still ship to AUS?
  10. That means the studio will release a matching cover art in the near future so fans will buy again to complete the collection. 😁
  11. I use the mobile app "CLZ Movies" to catalog my collection. It can sort them out in anyway I can imagine and "Format" is the one to see all titles in 3D, 4K, DVD, Bluray and even HDDVD. I believe local 3D release is already done. Have not seen any new titles in months after "Secret Life of Pets 2". Will have to import all future 3D blurays from other markets and they are becoming harder and more expensive to get. Wonder where else has got "Gemini Man" released in 3D. But this Germany import is great with a choice of German/English at the beginning so I can play it in a totally English environment without guessing. Next in line are "Maleficent 2", "Frozen 2" and "Star Wars IX". Hope the global situation will not get any worst and lead to a standstill in the near future.
  12. Finally got my shipment with Gemini Man 3D from Germany. Took 2 weeks longer than before but still fine considering the current situation worldwide. Great experience watching the movie in 4K 60fps. 3D is equally impressive in another dimension.
  13. Have a brief run on both old and new "Last Jedi" and the obvious difference is on the choice of languages, subtitles and a printed logo "Dolby Digital +" on the new disc face. The old one shows Dolby Atmos 7.1.4 on disc menu while the new one just Dolby Atmos. Can't really tell if they are the same as my AVR only display them as Dolby Atmos. No immediate difference I can spot on PQ as I don't have any DV display. They give the same metadata 500/--- on the JVC. But I can constantly see a higher bit rate on the old than new with the Xbox info function. The new one rarely reach 60 Mbps but the old one can easily jump above 70 Mbps. Not sure if that has anything to do with DV. Probably we are having a different disc then USA. Ours got Japanese DD+ 7.1 and USA does not. The new Extra disc does have the feature "Meet the Porgs" which is missing on the first release.
  14. All individual movies are released earlier than expected so I am happy to buy them all from JB with their Buy 2 Get 1 Free deal. That is like 33.33% off. Also grab "Jumanji Next Level" to fill the gap. Was not meant to buy "Last Jedi" and "Solo" again but it just seems wrong to skip them here. Now I am waiting for the IX in 3D from UK and hopefully the situation of delivery won't get any worst in the next month.
  15. Very nice to know. May be one day when our dollar goes up a bit then I will bite the bullet. Funny the dddhouse I have used before is a different site with dot hk instead of dot com. I believe they are not related because of their different pricing and stock. I have also checked dddhouse.com before when looking for Abominable but found no listing back then. Good to know they have it now and price is 3 US dollar lower then what I paid after shipping.
