Re: Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice - 7/19

To my experience, China, Taiwan, and Korea are also in the same region as Japan and the USA. I have purchased BluRays from all of those countries, for what that's worth.

Re: Have you ever blind bought a dvd then upgraded to Blu Ray without watching the dv

Sort of. I accidentally added the DVD version of this French movie to my wishlist, got it, feigned delight, and then traded it into Amazon for credit and then bought the Blu Ray. *sigh*

Re: How do you rent your movies?

I've started to purchase cheap DVDs ($3 or < or movies on further sale) from Big Lots, since watching them at that price is actually cheaper than Netflix disc rentals (at the rate I can get through...

Re: Criterion Wish List

Almost anything by Zhang Yimou, but especially Raise the Red Lantern! Also, Stealing Beauty by Bernardo Bertolucci and, again, almost anything from Francois Ozon.

Re: buying vcd

Sometimes I buy a cheaper VCD when it's a movie I don't care to keep but I want to get a version with Chinese subtitles to watch with my mom. It's convenient in that way, but the PQ is pretty awful.

Re: Ang Lee Father Knows Best BR Trilogy

My cousin says she can get it for half of the cost. She's probably using the internet (I can't read Chinese) and searching on sites I can't shop very easily on my own. She's coming to visit anyway,...

Re: The last Blu-ray you bought (Round 3)

Re: The First Time (2012) (W/D: Jon Kasdan, S: Britt Robertson)

This was good, pleasantly satisfying if you like coming-of-age stories.

Re: How Do You Usually Watch 4:3 Material On Your 16:9 Display?

I'll stretch "lower value" stuff like old TV shows, Korean soap operas, random comedy shows or concerts. If it's a movie, I watch that OAR. Watching too much stuff 4:3, though, risks leaving burn...

Re: The Dark Knight Rises - Blu-ray + DVD + UV Digital Copy (Dec 07, 2012)

I thought it was pretty good, particularly because I watched Reborn before watching any of the other supplements. I was a tad disappointed, however, when I saw much of the same footage in the other...

Can anyone recommend good Asian Blu-Ray sites

I shop YesAsia.com but the prices can be pretty brutal. DVDAsian.com is worse. I've also started shopping DDDHouse.com but their shipping sucks, their selection and inventory is sometimes limited,...

Re: Original but no sequel(s) on Blu-ray?

Bridget Jones' Diary falls into this category unless you count the non-North American releases of the sequel.

Re: Exotica Blu Ray Combo (Canadian)?

The Blu-Ray is good, especially given the age of the film. It's easily the best I've ever seen it and certainly beats the crap out of the non-anamorphic, out-of-print Miramax DVD. It's also...

Re: The Dark Knight Rises - Blu-ray + DVD + UV Digital Copy (Dec 07, 2012)

If it helps, much of the footage in the documentary is already present, albeit in different form, in the regular special features. It's nicer to see it all edited together as a fairly substantial...

Re: BD Player doesn't play random discs

I had the same thing happen and ended up buying a Sony BDP-S580. So far, this one has handled all of the discs my previous player could not (mostly Universal/Focus Features titles).

Re: In the Mood for Love coming to BR Oct. 2nd

I like how watching Can't Buy Me Love is equated to something which somebody is "caught" doing :)
