Hi everyone, especially Busara and Mc Very Happy

I am trying to buy a copy ( or two Laughing ) of the Secondhand Lions DVD released in the Netherlands because I heard that the artwork featured on the cover is completely different than any other release in the world. Could either of you confirm this ? I was sent these jpgs :






I would really be grateful if someone could help me obtain this version of the DVD . If anyone can help me, could you send me a private email please ? I'll need to arrange with you how to send you full payment for the DVDs plus postage to me in Singapore.

Many thanks in advance Very Happy

daniel

I'd love to help you Danchia. Smile

That cover looks like the Dutch version indeed. I can do some scouting for the lowest possible price this week, if you like. I shall keep you updated in this thead.

I have bought the U.S. region 1 release and the U.K region 2 version myself.

The search begins. Smile

Hey, I am so glad to hear from you again , Busara ! How have you been , my friend ? Smile

Many , many thanks for the offer to help me locate a copy of this DVD version of Secondhand Lions. I had noticed from your wonderful personal site that you had bought the Region 2 UK version. I'm still waiting for mine to arrive from amazon.co.uk . Heh heh ..... it was stopped at the very strict Singapore Customs and sent for censorship. It's been there for 2 months already. Ah well, at least one of the film censors will get to see a really wonderful family movie ! LOL Laughing

I really appreciate your offer to help me with the Netherlands version, Busara. You are GREAT ! Very Happy

Now that is hilarious. Secondhand Lions stopped for censorship. Well, let's hope they'll enjoy the film! Very Happy

I'm very glad that I can help you out to get a Dutch copy of the film Danchia. I'm having a free day this week from work, which I'll use to try and grab a copy.

Ofcourse, I shall keep you updated on the progress. Again, I'm honoured to help you with this. Smile

Danchia, I'm heading into the city tomorrow. I'm pretty sure I can pick up the dvd then.

If you could send me a private message with your full adress, I will be able to send it to you next week. Smile

Tomorrow is kind of a festive day in the Netherlands btw, as we celebrate queen's day. I just hope some shops will stay open. If not, I'll find another way to obtain the dvd early next week!

It was madness. So many people everywhere.. and I'm not even living in of the bigger cities here. It was impossible to go anywhere without the risk of being squashed by the crowd. Shops were pretty much closed too, I found out.

But that matters not. I'll find a way to get that DVD to your door. I've just ordered it online so it will arrive at my home within 5 days, I hope. Then I'll forward it to you. Smile

What did you end up doing ? Smile

I ended up doing not a lot, actually! Very Happy It's a very relaxed event. I decided to not visit a dvd/music shop in the city for that's also very dangerous. Last time I went to a real store, my eyes caught a glimpse of the really cool Shogun box-set - you can guess what happened. It landed in my shopping basked. Smile

Needless to say, it is enormous fun. A blast from the past, and a great series to see again.

So I have ordered the NL edition of Secondhand Lions online. It should arrive this very week. I'm going to be taking a short break away from home this weekend, so I'll probably be able to send the dvd towards you around may 10th, or so. Smile

Hi busara & danchia,

I just saw thisone, i see you already took care of it Busara.
It sure looks like the dutch version. Never thought thatone would appear someday.

I've just came back from London. 2 days before I left my ID was stolen Evil or Very Mad so i had to request an emergency passport. We had to wait for 2 days on Schiphol (the Amsterdam Airport) but then we finally got it, and I still got to go to England. I loved it!

Hey Mc! Good to see you again!

I am really happy that you were still able to enjoy your holiday after that identity card was stolen. I'm curious what you have been doing in England. If you like, I'd love to hear about it. Smile

My short holiday in Belgium was pretty cool as well! We went to the Ardennes and rented a small house there. It was right in the middle of a big forest, and very calm. The surroundings were awesome, lots of green and fresh air.

It's good to be back though. I did miss my internet connection. Wink

Hey Mc,

Sorry to hear about your stolen ID .... real bummer that ! Wow, you had to live on Schiphol for two days ? You mean like in Spielberg's The Terminal ? Cool ! Shocked

I'm glad to hear that you still managed to enjoy yourself in England. Tell us more about your adventures there .... Smile
