Oz is English language slang Kees; you weren't to know.

Probably a better idea if I link this at a Forum sponsor - here at Devoted DVD.

Thanks for this information, John.
I won't know the shipping costs from Ezy till the box is available for shipping.

Devoted dvd uses these shipping methods:

These are currently the only shipping method available to use on this order.
Rest of World (Ex GST)
Padded Bag - $0 + (2 x $3.8) $AU7.60
DHL - (Signature) - $4.5 + (2 x $3) $AU10.50
International Express Registered Post (EMS) - $35 + (2 x $3.8) $AU42.60

Has anybody had experience with the cheapest, Padded Bag?
No problems?

I ordered it from Devoted. Can't remember if it came in a box or padded bag but it was in immaculate condition when it arrived about 5 days after ordering

And it was the standard/cheapest shipping option

Only about £20 too

Got my R4 Death Wish box today.
Certainly excllent value at under £20 from Devoted DVD.
No customs charges either.
All 5 anamorphic.
Shame they didn't give us a surround remix on some of them.
The mono sound is so flat on the early ones.
I have an uncut R1 of the first movie if anyones after it

Yeah, read that post but I never heard of anybody saying Oz. Now I know.

Ordered the Oz box yesterday at ezydvd (currently out of stock)
So what happened the next day?
Received a shipping mail.
This is one fast shop.
Total price in pounds must be around 17 pounds (45 AUS dollars, 26 euro)

Starting watching a Bronson film on BBC1 a while ago. It was about him going after some torturer in Latin America or something. I think it was called 'The Evil that Men Do'. Didn't see all the film cause timings changed and sky+ didn't get it all. But it was an incredibly crudely made film, quite shocking in it's ferocity though. It was so 80s that in some ways it seemed more out of time than watching an old b+w film from 1950.

If I was asked by someone what Charles Bronson film should they see then I would say 'Hard Times'. He may have made better films but I think this was about his best leading part.

Thats a good choice.
Once Upon A Time In The West would be the obvious, but it's not really a 'Bronson' film.

Whenever someone slates Bronson's acting ability, I tell em to go watch the Indian Runner

Did Bronson ever do a comedy? This would have been interesting to see him playing against type.

Bronson is also comedy relief in Pat and Mike getting 'mugged' by Kate Hepburn; he always does comedy rather well I think.

Bumpity bump - has anyone seen Red Sun? Never heard of it until this morning & it looks like fun - has a great cast too; Bronson, Toshiro Mifune, Alain Delon, Ursula Andress. The R2 DVD is listed as 4:3 - anyone know if that aspect is correct - IMDB list the film as 1.85:1 but I know they're not always the most reliable source.

Cool poster too -
