The trend seems to be, pack a crap film in great packaging and they will come.

Huh? There are some pretty good movies in this thread. Did yesterdays defeat really knock the sense out of every Englishman?

Hey manicsounds, how much is the Top gun set? Where could I buy it? I don't care about the movie but the jacket makes for a cool Halloween costume.

Korean DVDs often have very nice packaging, but the Limited Edition of Fighter in the Wind has to be the best presented DVD I've ever seen.

That's their "World News" column and includes R4, R3, Japanese R2 ... basically anything other than R1 and R2 UK news.

:lol: You kept the anger and frustration bottled up until now? I didn't even know you read my post.
