Archives For dvd

Availability in all regions, cross-platform… ubiquitous movies, music… even books, if possible~ x’D Well, maybe I’m going too far with the books, since there’s a base of language and there’d be THAT barrier, but you get my point, right?

For instance, I can’t really remember when was the last time I went to watch a film at the movies, because I either:

  • Have already seen it on DVD
  • Have already waited months for it to be released, and have already lost interest
  • Have never been interested in it

So Amy supports world premieres because she’s impatient. Also, I would fully suport Paypal if they were available in Peru, but no~ They do not support accounts in Peru (That’s why I opened one when I was in Canada). Moreover, I would support other online stores (eg. mp3 stores) but they have region restrictions… some more annoying than others. One of the most annoying is the ‘billing address’ issue… even if I have a Canadian credit card, I would not be able to use their service because I don’t have a physical Canadian address anymore… WHILE I am still able to buy a physical album and ship it here for more or less the same amount of money.

I was also ready to buy shows through BitTorrent, but they support US Only – they ARE nice and professional enough to point it out below the “buy” button, so they won’t waste your time as you try to sign up for a new account there… to then find out you don’t have the right ISP, or you can’t add your credit card, or SORRY, THIS CONTENT IS ONLY AVAILABLE IN SUCH REGION. Ever happened?

So I’m all for movies and music available everywhere at the same time. And you?

*SWOON*

OMG, I’ve died and gone to heaven~~ LOL’ After the disilusion that Memories of Matsuko will only be released as a PAL Region 2 DVD~~~ I’ve set my eyes on this pricier DVD item.

Itches inside! LOL’ Because I’ve got the previous ‘Special’ edition… and I hate it oh-so-much when they do that. Releasing such an uber fancy DVD edition. Continue Reading…

Oh yeah! God is grand!

Nippon Cinema updates saying Memories of Matsuko will be coming! Once again~~~ The UK distributor Third Window Films has it listed in its website.

COMING TO CINEMAS IN THE UK ON JUNE 13TH, 2008
OUT ON DVD IN LATE SEPTEMBER 2008

Now… will that be only a Region 2, or will they be my salvation and released a Region 1??? xD Please kamisama, let it be a Region 1~~~~ xD

Also on other Matsuko news~~~~

Memories of Matsuko, Kamikaze Girls and Dasepo Naughty Girls will all be playing at the Cube Cinema in Bristol during August.

Memories of Matsuko will be having a one-off screening at the Curzon cinema in Clevedon on the 31st of August as a part of it’s film club.

*EDIT* I just got an email back saying they will only release this on Region 2 PAL, in January. BUMMER.

I just can’t believe Amazon doesn’t have any more of The Jason Bourne Collection, especially since they didn’t have it listed when Ultimatum appeared for pre-order~~~ damn u, amazon! I could’ve pre-ordered, duh!
I. DONT. BELIEVE!

**EDIT**
Late edit, but I ended up buying from Amazon.ca, and Amazon.com re-stocked.

First, before anyone complains about my opinion, I’m writing this reviews not only as a person who listens to Celtic Woman, but also as someone who’s bought tons of DVDs, and even has made some in her short career.

I’ve got my complete Celtic Woman DVD collection, of sorts…
– Celtic Woman
– Celtic Woman: Live at Slane Castle
– Celtic Woman: A Christmas Celebration

First, some facts on Amy relating to Celtic Woman:
– Saw them on a PBS (Public Broadcasting SOMETHING SOMETHING hahaha) in Canada
– Were in Vancouver, but missed them coz I had classes.
– Fiddling is cool, Amy thinks.
– Saw clips of the Slane Castle show, and bought the DVD.
– The 2nd DVD was the first in my collection.
