Don't worry about it mate...they won't understand what you are talking about...it's like a foreign language to them! lol
They don't know what a DVD is most of 'em!

"What's that you say? Explain it to me again....VIDEO...on a DISC?!? How do they do that then...is it a round disc with videotape wound around it? Like an 8mm reel you mean? I'm confuuuuuuuused..."

lol

Bless 'em...

very nice selection Lars! although you could have gotten Celine and Julie from me in a nice trade I put it up for trade here on the forum a long while back...

The titles I selected from your list are discs I also have in my collection and that Vampyr is on my wantlist, but lately I have been buying a lot of Japanese (samurai) films, so I think already spend my christmas bonus

Assault! Jack the Ripper
The Watcher in the Attic
The Warrior
Makai Tensho: Samurai Reincarnation
Legend Of The Eight Samurai
Hanzo The Razor
Beautiful Hunter
The Shogun Collection
Ninja Wars
Ninja Scroll - 10th Anniversary Edition
Gojoe
Irezumi
Sky High
Night Watch / Day Watch (Special Edition Directors Cuts)
Naked Youth
The Sun's Burial
Man Stroke Woman - Series 1
Man Stroke Woman : Complete BBC Series 2
The Fast Show : Ultimate Collection (7 Disc BBC Box Set)
Female Demon Ohyaku
Female Yakuza Tale: inquisition & torture
Quick-draw Okatsu
Okatsu the Fugitive

That's about it for this month I think (although the month isn't over yet :)) so, as you can see my DVD budget is bigger than my VHS one, I'm a man of all ages

Resonator05: What are you gonna do? Hit me in the head with a Exciting! tape?

Petcor80: I would say that my DVD & VHS budget are about the same, but for me it goes in periods... last months i've been buyig a lot of VHS but before that period I bought almost exlusively DVD:s for a while. But now I felt it was time to take a break from the trash and catch up on some quality DVD:s i've missed out on. "Celine" was on sale for about ten euro, not much to fuzz about there... should be interesting to finally check out Rivette.

The little I have seen from him I liked, but I was expecting só much from this one (there is a lot of hype about it, if you can speak of things like that in the arthouse world) that it became a bit of a dissapointment. I liked the concept of what he was trying to do, but on the whole it didn't do anything for me... I don't know, maybe you'll like it a lot. I just know I don't need it in my collection as I won't have to see this a second time or reccomend it to anyone

Yeah, just too bad we have the swedish krona here (which has also hit bottom lately), the prices were about the same as usual for me. And it's no fun ordering from xploitedcinema or dvdpacific anymore now that the dollar has gone up so much...

Right

But are these R2 UK DVDs uncut? Isn't there cencorship there anymore? I usually avoid UK releases because of it...

PLAY is a great store by the way, their service is nice!
