one funny moment was the sudden change of heart and the top-down car scene U-turn. Because in any kdrama, apparently traffic rules don't apply and you can make a U-turn whenever and wherever you please :)

am not saying that the Oscars represent the supreme honor bestowed on the best (they are not) or that such a Hollywood stamp is a guarantee of quality (it is not), but what I mean to say is that Okuribito is a regular Japanese movie undistinguishable from all the other slow-paced, written-as-you-sh...

The wire - undoubtedly one of the best of all time. Very bold with its direction, raw, real, haunting, just brilliant. IT crowd - Though not US, however, brilliant. I repeat brilliant. Big bang - Brilliant 1st season, just okay currently. They're running out of material so its seems. Psych - Funny &...

HTPC should be seen as entertainment center, and PC as a bonus. I actually have two Pio divx capable players, they still do their part. As more established groups are shifting to h264, ie DB,nya (shelling out HD rips ex. osen), more films (asian from FSS), my stand alones are getting less viewing ti...

with HD 720p/1080p rips coming of age and with h264 codec in avi/mkv containers becoming more and more popular, a set top DVD player capable of srt/divx is not advisable anymore IMO. HTPC is the way go. Plug your PC to your TV and there you go. Or build a dedicated one. Which ever way you like.

@jovi75 I suggest that you not generalize & just speak for yourself. A lot of people do buy the original DVD. The YESASIA banner should have been a dead giveaway. groink has pretty much addressed all the issues you raised. Its good you think idols unlimited gives the best DDL & you should support th...
