A brilliant movie with lots of iconic moments. But it's very much a marmite thing - I went with a group of a dozen or so workmates to a cinema screening a few years back. 2 walked out. The rest asked in the bar afterwards what it was about ("What was wrong with his arm??"), moaned about the duff special effects or complained that none of the scenes were original ("Especially that but where he's riding the missile - I've seen that done in so many other movies"). 1 of them enjoyed it. I no longer recommend this movie to "normal" people!
#2
Does anyone have any ideas how to pay with Maestro on CDWOW?

I'm having a spot of bother, says it's available but the option to click the card only gives Mastercard, American Express and Visa.

There's every possibility I'm being a royal idiot, but if anyone could point out anything I'm missing I'd be eternally grateful for at least five minutes.
#3
I posted this last time they had it (Sept 09). They never delivered and cancelled the order about a month later. I'm not sure how they've got their hands on them again (if they have) as it seems to be out of print or unavailable elsewhere. Will try again though, thanks OP for highlighing it again.
#4
I also ordered this in September and CD-Wow cancelled the order about a month after taking the money.

Me too.

But I'm still going to try again:oops:
#6
fantastic film showcasing the late peter sellers amazing talents :o)
#7
Classic film. Sellers was a genius, as was Kubrick. I'm going to go for this even though I'm more than slightly perturbed by all the negative cdwow experience flowing out in this thread. I've always had good service from cd wow. Hmm.
#8
Nice price, but I didnt particularly like the film. :)
#9
great film, i've lost my original so this is all the excuse I need to trade up...
#10
Always wanted to see this film but never been the right price or available. Best deal I've seen. Heat added.
#11
Possibly the greatest comedy ever filmed. Lent my copy to a mate who never returned it. This special edition for 3 bob will do nicely. HOT!
#12
Just gone out of stock :cry:

Such a great film though...
#13
Amazing. I already have it on DVD but I've been looking for the novel for a couple of years now and it's very hard to find (not least because it's been published under two titles - 'Two Hours to Doom' and 'Red Alert' and the author, Peter George, who wrote under the name Peter Bryant, also wrote a novelisation of the film after it was finished, as much was changed in the adaptation). I hope that CD Wow do send this out if I order.
#14
I saw this on TV one afternoon when I was skiving off school - that was over 30 years ago and I still remember being exhillarated to bits to find such a darkly satirical film could exist.
#15
I've just had the dispatch email so it looks like we're getting it this time
#16
had dispatch email as well
#17
Peter Sellers proved himself the genius he was in this.
The yanks didn't (still don't) have an actor/comedian to come within several light years talent and ability-wise.
Yet he was only doing what several great talents (including Alec Guiness) had done equally well many times in Ealing pictures.

None left.

Well, I'll eat my hat - they've only just gone and dispatched mine too! :thumbsup:
#23

Me too, just the bog standard dvd with no extras to speak of, thought it was too good to be true! I've sent a note to customer service to tell them the wrong item was delivered. Its highly unlikely they ever had the special edition in the first place :roll:
#25
Surprise surprise, standard one for me. :x

They are so very carp now it is unbelievable.
Especially when you consider how good the old CDwow was.

Sighs and dribbles into his beer.................. :cry:
#26
I got the same just the standard dvd which I already have, bunch of crooks.
#27
Unbelievable what CD Wow are trying to do here! See copies of emails below. Awaiting reply with interest!

Further to below here is the copy of the Hot Deals entry .NOTE clearly shows the extras included for £2.99.

To say I am disappointed in this response is an understatement - this may be what the site shows NOW but it is absolutely not what was shown at the time when I ordered the dvd in good faith. I am appalled that your company is doing this. Included in the documentation I sent was a print of the offer clearly showing the extras ,please check this. This is in clear and absolute breach of the trade descriptions act and I will certainly be taking this up with the relevant authorities unless you put this right. I found the deal through the Hot Deals site and it was clearly shown as £2.99 including all the extras. When I received the dvd I checked the site again, the dvd details were the same but the price had gone back up.

I tried to attach a copy of this but your mail system has twice rejected it maybe because of the attachment.

I expect you to honour this deal or to offer some form of compensation .I returned the dvd as requested.

I can confirm that the site for Dr. Strangelove has not mentioned the extra items as you have advised.

I would like to know what is happening with the order I returned - it was the wrong dvd and I asked for the correct one to be sent to me, I have not heard anything yet though it was returned on 12 January 2010 with the full supporting documentation as requested.

Ref xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.

Grateful for an early response as it is coming up to a month without even an acknowledgement.

Thank you.

Are you sure all those details came from cdwow website ? I seem to remember they didn't - certainly when I ordered it they weren't there - I was hoping for the special edition, but wasn't expecting it. Perhaps the OP copied the details from elsewhere ?
#29
From memory, what is on this link is what was there when I placed my order
