Anyone have any good recommendations for online stores that sell asian movies at a reasonable price (and ships to Europe for a reasonable price).
I've usually bought from different ebay stores and play.com and cdwow.com, but I bet there are other local stores where you can buy movies from Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, India and such...

Have you tried Amazon? They might be a good place

For Americans and those in the UK your national Amazon is the best way to go. They have great prices and great shipping, as well as fast shipping. I don't think that they can be beat on price.
If your in Australia, often Amazon.com is the best bet as well. If you work out the price, it's about the same as buying it from Ezydvd or one of the others; and in regards to your DVD player? Don't worry, most companies provide a way to read multiple regions on your DVD players - and some stores fix it themselves.

http://www.choicesdirect.com/shop.asp - £2 shipping to Europe, not a bad selection
http://www.dvd.co.uk/ - do deliver to Europe but not sure of price, it's not on the faq, good selection and deals
http://www.sendit.com/ - £1.50 to Europe, good selection but the actual DVD's are a bit expensive - just look for the deals as with all sites
Happy hunting :)

Yep, Amazon, no doubt.

Just about my entire DVD collection came from Amazon.ca. They have the best prices and the best selection I've found anywhere online or in store.

I always buy from Amazon, but for renting films I use www.lovefilms.com . You just line up the films you want and they send them to you (up to 3 at a time depending on your account type), you watch them and send them back in the free post bag. They then send you the next ones. You can keep them for as long as you want - you just don't get new ones until you return them ;)
They have around 15,000 titles, though we've now found a site with closer to 25,000 and a similar system, so we might switch :)

There is also site that lets you download movies for rent or purchase called movielink. Haven't tried it yet but it is supposedly starts at .99cents for a rental for some trial period, then they rent for between $1.95 to $4.95. You have a month after you download it to watch it, and once you start viewing 24 hours in which you can view and re-view.
Its more expensive than going to a local place to rent for new movies , so I guess they are trying to go for those who don't want to go out for their movies, and those who rent and then don't watch right away and end up with late fees.
Didn't see any martial arts stuff, but they seemed to have quite a bit of Japanese Anime.
The movies for purchase seem to be around $8.99, but they seem a pretty shabby lot.
There is also a service here called NetFlix (http://www.netflix.com/Default) that you subscribe to and then you get so many movies per month mailed to you. There are different levels which determine how much you pay per month and how many you can have at once, and per month I think.

I mostly use play.com as it has free p&p but that might be just to the UK.
