Smart idea on their part - thanks for the info.

You've probably just made Trigger's day.

Why am I not surprised....

So - which of those would you recommend to grab or avoid?

IMHO

Failian is a very good movie...if you can get past the first 30 mins.

Memento Mori is also worth a pick-up.

Both of the above I first saw as Netflix rentals (which are the cheapie discs), and I liked the films enough to buy the Korean DVDs. I don't recall if there were any glaring defeciencies in the cheapie discs such as improper framing, ridiculous subtitles, etc.

My Boss, My Hero...sucked in a big way. Avoid.

A Perfect Match...have not seen.

Who Are You? I own this disc but have not watched it yet.

"Memento Mori" is listed on a few sites as being "full screen". Don't know if they are using "full screen" to mean "4:3 non-anamorphic" or if it is indeed full-screen.

A Perfect Match is cute, partly because the female lead's propensity for tripping (as in falling down) reminds me a lot of my girlfriend. It's a romantic comedy about a dating service employee who falls for one of her clients.

I also recommend Failan, though (as noted) it does take a while to pick up steam, at which point it also totally shifts gears.

Failan I haven't seen, but I hear it's great...

Memento Mori didn't impress me - in fact, I don't think I sat through the whole thing. I got bored and shut it off or fell asleep about 3/4 into it.

My Boss, My Hero - I liked it. I'd say it's the strongest choice aside from Failan.

A Perfect Match - Ho-hum romantic comedy. Ultimately forgettable, but it wasn't bad.

Who @re You - I reviewed it here somewhere, but don't remember what I said... I know it was just an average romantic comedy. I think I liked it better than You've Got Mail, but that isn't saying much.
