Greencine sets new record

Greencine ships from San Francisco. I live in Greensboro, NC. I just received today, Wednesday, July 28, a disc they shipped at 6 PM on Monday, July 26. That's a record. They've taken a week to get here, in the past. However, there were two discs shipped that day, and I received only one.


  1. How is Greencine possibly worth the money if you live on the other side of the country?

  2. I've been looking for really rare, out-of-print titles, like some silent films from the 1920s. Greencine has them, but Netflix doesn't. Netflix has many of them, but not all. Also, Greencine has the original Hong Kong version of Shaolin Soccer, before Miramax messed with it. I pay a little extra per disc, and wait a little longer, but I'm a movie buff. I was spending about $60/month on movies before Netflix and Greencine. Now, I'm spending about $35 and seeing twice as many.
