Default Amazon Germany rules!

About to pick up:

Hooligans E11,97
Renaissance E11,97
Death at a Funeral E9,97 (Hilarious movie!)
The Island E9,97

Although I really wished Brotherhood of the Wolf was as cheap as these . Oh well, these are all gonna be awesome? Anyone have any last minute input before I place the order?

I agree I have 2 pre orders there currently myself plus another 3 on order thru the group buy. Not too bad at all with those prices. I remember getting Death At A Funeral for close to $40 from Tony at xploited. BTW check out the Aussie sites too. You can get some titles for as cheap as $8.36 US plus shipping.

Patience grasshopper. 2 more weeks. Wish I knew if that Planet Terror on Blu was region free or I would have ordered that too. Though I settled on a SD copy from Best Buy. Was a 2 disc Steelbook exclusive so I got that and will let either the blu player or the Tosh upconvert the damn thing..

At least I have it ordered, noted down on my google calendar. Amazon.de have it shipping the day before so that'll be good too. But my question is about DHL, and it is what's the difference between standard and international express if DHL is the only option? you get tracking, transit time is usually shorter than normal mail so why is there the two shipping options?

The tracking with the standard shipping option is not very useful. Actually recently my standard shipping packages form there have been shipped as "Deutsche Post Paket", nothing mentioned about DHL.

With standard shipping the tracking typically only shows the first stages of shipment while in Germany, example of the total tracking info for the last package I received from there:

26. Februar 2008 16:39 Staufenberg DE Lieferung hat das Depot verlassen.
26. Februar 2008 24:27 --- Transportdienstleister wurde informiert, um das Paket abzuholen.

Anyway, with standard shipping my packages typically arrive in 4-6 days so it's fairly fast. This package referred above arrived on 1st of March, on 4th day after shipping.
