Don't know about bigflix but my sister uses 70MM and only speaks highly of their service.

Guys, went to the reliance webworld and immediately signed up for an annum for just Rs.1800. That works out to 5 bucks a day, which is a steal considering the DVD's are all original ones. All other options didnt seem to VFM to me.

And, contrary to someone's statement on this thread, their English collection is actually quite nice. Though it is the standard well known movies and some of them i didnt expect to find are also there which was a pleasant surprise.

They are adding movies rapidly and their tip was what you dont see in the store, just do a quick search on their website and you may find it there.

Now, i have a lot of catching up on movies to do leaning back on the sofa with a popcorn and minute-maid in the hand, Going to watch my first movie from "Bigflix" today, starting with my favorite genre ( Horror) and the movie is " The Hills have Eyes"

i got myself 6 months membership at bigflix for just 950 /- rs after a 40% discount on icici bank card..

i think their membership is worth and the service for pick up/drop is very efficient and regular.

I have their monthly membership. I am very happy with them. All original DVDs and quite a huge collection in a tiny shop. With new movies around, you actually realize you havent watched quite a bunch of movies when you walk into the store. Hadnt watched Madagascar and it was a laugh riot. All the movies are well categorized too.

@BHP and Dippy, thanks for your inputs. I agree with you completely even if i am brand new to this system.

Can we use this thread to discuss the good movies that are available via. BIGLFLIX so that it will help us members to pick the right movies for our enjoyment?

Please keep the views on which movies are good pouring in on this thread!

Now, that is interesting. How does this work and what is the damage (in INR, of course)?

Anyone in Delhi using BigFlix ?

How efficient is their doorstep delivery ? Also, on request, can they leave the DVD with the security guard of the society ?

I would suggest you to try moviemart instead, much better service.

How good is their movie collection ? I recall it not being that great compared to BigFlix. Will check it again.

This looks good but slightly expensive if you want to rent more than 5-6 movies a month.

Any BigFlix users ?

Have subscribed to BigFlix for a month. Their delivery system is quite good. But they always delivered movies in the middle of my preferred list. They never delivered the ones from the top of my list.

The quality of the DVDs is also worse. Atleast 5 DVD didn't play for me because of the scratches on them.

I would prefer to go to Cinema Paradiso.

That is strange I have never had any problems with the dvd quality.
plus I generally rent out older movies so have only once received the second in the list movie.

Only issue was when they gave me Bridges of Madison County in Spanish.

I love the current 40% or is it 50% off on icici credit cards.
