about time someone introduced a new online service in this country!
I recently signed up with Meteor Entertainment.
They are one of the 3 new services in Oz where you can order rental DVD’s online and
they will mail them to you… then you return them by mail when you are finished with
them. They have over 7000 DVDs in their range, and from what I’ve seen, a fairly decent
collection of art house and foreign films as well. I signed up for the service after
reading about it in the AFR. I’d link
to the article, but they’ve already archived it and want you to pay $2.20 to read
it… I signed up because I’m always standing in the DVD store trying to remember
which movies I’ve read good reviews on and I always seem to have a strange mental
blank… so now I can cruise Meteor’s site at midnight, and have IMDB open
at the same time… and hopefully avoid the duds!
So anyways… just got my first DVD from them: Gangs
Of New York.
