Re: What DVD's 1rst prompted you to get a Region Free DVD player?

I don't think it was any one particular title. I got into Korean films in a big way right at about the same time I switched from VHS to DVD (around 2002). I had already rented through the meager...

Re: What´s HOT in Asian cinema right now?

I won't answer for flixtime, but I will answer for myself.

Re: What´s HOT in Asian cinema right now?

Just curious...I assume you have seen the original, yes? It's one of my favorite Japanese films. If you would have told me a guy sitting on a mat talking for 2+ hours would make for captivating...

Re: What´s HOT in Asian cinema right now?

Sure, no problem! I, too, recall the Trigger threads. When I first joined DVDtalk I was just getting into Korean film. Since then I've watched more than 250 Korean movies (and have about 130...

Re: What´s HOT in Asian cinema right now?

Just weighing in with another thumbs up for the movie reviews, flixtime. I base my Korean DVD purchases/rentals almost exclusively from what I read here and on Darcy's review page. Thanks and keep...

Re: Advice re: Asian TV series please

YesAsia has frequent sales on Korean TV box sets. Anything form 20 - 80% off retail. I've picked up a few. They often have sets designed especially for the U.S. market, meaing the English subs are...

Re: My Oppo took a dump--looking for advice

Yeah, I called Oppo and that's where I got the information for my "option 1." I was hoping they had authorized service centers in my area, but evidently all units needing repair have to be sent to...

Re: Inglorious Bastards - Tarantino's Next Project!

According to this thread, she was cast (and from what I understand, filmed for several scenes) but her part was cut for the final edit. Maybe that will be on the DVD.

Feel free to skip any such...

Never seen Hostel. Didn't seem like my cup of tea. Watched Cabin Fever from Netflix several years ago. It was okay. Started off good and went sortof downhill for the last half. I was not aware...

Re: Inglorious Bastards - Tarantino's Next Project!

OK, I've read the first 17 pages of this thread and I guess i'll weigh in with my position on things:

1) I *love* Tarantino movies. My top-10 list of U.S. films would probably have 4 or 5...

Re: Korean films to get, last 2 years

I see a couple 2006 releases mentioned in this thread (The Host; I'm a Cyborg but That's OK), so I'll use that as a cutting-off point for my recommendations.

Recommended from 2006:

Re: Crush and Blush (dir:Lee Kyoung-Mi, screen:Park Chan-wook) anyone see?

Well, I hope you get some more opinions. Some of my favorite Korean movies leave others cold, and I sure don't like some of the ones others rave about. I do think the screenplay for Crush and Blush...

Re: Crush and Blush (dir:Lee Kyoung-Mi, screen:Park Chan-wook) anyone see?

I bought the LE from YesAsia last week. I like a good comedy and that's the only genre I can get my wife to watch with me, so I figured it was good for a movie night.

Popped it in to watch last...

Re: What Import DVD convinced you to buy a Multi-Region DVD Player?

I never had an R1 player. I bought my first DVD player in 2002 (Sampo!) and knew it had to be region-free. I had already gotten into Hong Kong movies in a big way via VHS and was just starting to...

Re: Asian films - Comments/suggestions wanted!

I watched Secret Sunshine on a rental and really liked it. As a bonus, I was later able to choose the HK DVD release as a freebie on my last YesAsia order.
