Every time I go to imdb.com, the homepage is sandwiched between this ambiguous advertisement for some random movie or television show.

Anybody have trusted sources for import DVDs (from elsewhere to the US, specifically)? Amazon.co.uk is good for Brit stuff, but wither Europe? XploitedCinema looks like a strong possibility (The Spanish release of Chimes at Midnight! The Italian release of El Topo!), but I have no idea if they're reputable.
