CEX is by far your best bet.

The Pound shops in the UK have great selections of them for £1 if you are ever over there.

Their retail stores around the country in Ireland. Be warned, they changed their shipping rate from €5 flat rate to €1.50 per DVD. Could add up. At the same time though, some of the movies are as little as 10 cent.

I think I'm going to buy this one, seeing as it's the only place I can buy it. The only thing I'm concerned about is that it say "region: all regions"

I hope that means it'll play in a DVD player here!

Something like 'One Flew Over the Cuckoos Next' for example.
There are special collectors sites.

I don't know any of them by name though sorry.

Yeah It says all regions but it also says NTSC a number of times. I'd chance it, Amazon are good with refunds.

A lot of old movies were released on DVD primarily because costs were so low. Many never made it to BD or online.

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's nest was released and widely available on DVD. OP should be able to pick it up 2nd hand in either a charity shop or CEX.

I'm just a bit nervous about who I'm buying it off. It reminds me of Chinese scammers. They'd happily sell you the DVD knowing it doesn't work, and by the time I'll send it back by registered post, it'll get lost or I'll forget about it.

What do you think?

Thanks,

Think I might go with this one. It says "All DVDs are Region Free NTSC (North American) format unless otherwise specified."

And does that look like a fake address?

Business Address:
