anyone bought off of any of these sites selling vcd's for $5 + shipping? sounds a lot better then downloading for ages ;-)

I found a bunch off of eBay...

i have bought some of those off of ebay. but i stay away from the bootleg vcds. although 90% of vcd's are bootlegs anyway. i buy the chinese movies on dvd i can't find in the US, just because they aren't carried by most US distributors. but after shipping costs, those $5 vcds end up costing $10 'cause they charge $5 for shipping, even though you look at the package and it has a stamp for 80cents on it.

you are better off doing what webgurl does.

I saw Signs 2 weeks before the theatrical release, it was a SVCD workprint, meaning the quality was equal to VHS.

And for anyone is ready to jump down my throat, I saw it the first day it was released in theatres anyway! Great movie btw, everyone should see it, best out this year so far. :)

i got star wars episode 1 in manila a few years ago when it came out, it was a copy someone had made with a video camera in the movie theater. it is funny, you can hear the crowd cheering, a few heads move when someone gets up and a cell phone ringing. but for about $1.50 can't beat the price.
