I'll only buy Akira if it's got that 80s ninja turtle-sounding dub where they keep screaming their names at each other.

The current blu-ray has that dub as one of the audio tracks you can select.

I just found this thread today and am hoping some goons can help me.

I have a bunch of UK DVDs that I usually play with a laptop, and a Region B Blu-Ray I just bought that I would like to play. I just noticed last night that my PS4 only plays Region A.

Can anyone recommend a regionless DVD/Blu-ray player that works well, or a Euro player that works on 120V/60Hz?

Iíve been on Amazon and the comments arenít very inspiring.

Awesome, Iíll have a look. I really didnít want to take a chance on one that can be converted, and find out it canít. Or spend £30 on shipping trying to buy a Euro version.

I had a small Amazon gift card to burn so I bought the old 8-movie Friday the 13th set since I donít like the movies enough to spend the $$$ on that new set. I am dying laughing at how incredibly dumb and obvious every single 3D effect is in Part 3. Itís like if someone made a movie entirely out of Fozzieís cheap gags in MuppetVision 3D.

Itís honestly kinda endearing.

My favorite is the baseball bat that just hovers in front of your nose for like five seconds as the hero teens park their van.

I still have half the movie to go, but the current MVP is the overhead shot of the two idiot kids having a juggling contest for no reason, followed by the yo-yo scene that goes on for what feels like five minutes.

ed: also the one girl just handing a joint to the camera for like ten seconds

ed 2: Ok now itís the hippie making popcorn. I think I love this movie.

I really wanna see Jaws 3-D in 3-D someday. Not quite enough to buy a 3D TV and player but who knows.

The 8-disc set has Part 3D with the original anaglyph 3D version right? I was bummed that they didn't include the anaglyph version with the new set, it's just the non-3D plus a 3D blu ray version that requires a 3D player, 3D-ready TV and glasses.

I have pretty much everything I need to watch the 3D version though, I think. Don't you basically just need a 3D blu ray player (have), 3D-ready TV (have), glasses (don't have) and high speed HDMI (don't have)? I'm also not 100% sure which HDMI port to use for 3D or if you can use 3D with an HDMI switch.

vv Well I have a HMD, but not a blu ray drive for my PC :doh:

I've watched a 3D Blu Ray (Creature from the Black Lagoon) on a PSVR headset and it worked great. I assume there's ways to do that on PC VR setups too. That almost seems like a more accessible way to watch them these days than having a 3D TV.

Not unlike the two 3-D Rarities Blu-rays (from Flicker Alley), I'd jump for a disc of just theme park, expo, world's fair films that aren't shown anymore.

Just with Disney, there's that, Captain EO, original Star Tours, the Circle-Vision films, Honey I Shrunk the Audience, and others.

Golden Dreams over in California Adventure was a real howler about equality and no matter what your background is, you can make it in America.



Except those Chinese railroad workers, which they kill explode with dynamite in the movie. Those guys get loving merked.

I believe the giant banner with Whoopi's face on it was on the opposite side of the building and there were, like, two giant Whoopi statues (that had Whoopi's live action face projected onto them) on both sides of the screen.

Also a real good montage at the end that featured footage of things like kids in the special olympics crossing the finish line with a white hand and a black hand shaking superimposed over it.


I miss it very much.

BHC II is a good looking movie - much moreso than the original. That's the one I'd really like to see in 4K

At least that lazy-rear end trend toward minimalism in covers is over. I think I even prefer actor face collages to the cover of the Matrix just being a duracell on a white background or whatever.

I honestly miss that trend because it was just a competition for pathetic nerds to try and be as esoteric as possible.

Like, imagine if those dopes had any say. Some normal person is browsing the DVD section at Walmart and sees the cover of The Big Lebowski and passes over it because they don't want to see some lovely rug movie.

Your player might be equipped to play any region of DVD without any extra hassle. Test it first and go from there.

My region free Blu-ray player doesn't make you do anything special for DVDs (unlike BDs where you have to select the region first). You just pop it in and go.
