Named by my favourite Italian film, CinemaParadiso.co.uk, is currently the best online DVD rental company in the UK in my opinion. I’ve been with them on and off since they started in 2003 and recently their service has improved so much with regards to delivery and availability of the discs that I simply had to share my experience here on Trustpilot. Some people may wonder why bother with dvds when there is streaming service available. Well, I prefer to watch films in Blu-Ray format on my Samsung TV instead of streaming. I must admit the streaming is convenient way of watching films but the quality of the picture and sound cannot be compared with the results you get from blu-rays.
Cinema Paradiso also won the best buy award by Ethical Consumer in July 2013 in front of Lovefilm and Netflix and the other big names out there which is another reason for writing this review.
I am one of those people who support small independent businesses and do not like using big companies such as Lovefilm, Amazon, Netflix and Blocbuster purely because they mostly concentrate on providing the Hollywood content. So in my search I came across to Cinema Paradiso, who appears to be concentrating more on World Cinema but including also popular mainstream titles. I signed up to test their claim of 70,000 titles by adding some odd films to my list. On my 3 at the time level, the first 3 titles were my top 3 choices. They could not do this better than this. Their website is well designed and easy to use. I am very pleased. Cinema Paradiso, please keep up the good work. 5/5
