I distinctly remember this being the last time I got up to piss during a movie, with the exception of a couple movies I already saw. I remember nothing else about the movie.

Perhaps you have not been to the *Playground*.
The *Playground* is for Taalo and for Orz, but *Campers* can go.
It more fun than several.
You can go there for too much fun.

I bought Rubin & Ed and I can confirm it's a pressed disc.

Whatís the generally accepted solution for region free players these days? Picked up a few blu-rays from Arrow a little while ago and while some of them are region free, others are locked to region two.

Both Sony and Universal "MOD" discs are just like Warner Archive. Actual pressed discs, but they usually have cheap packaging.

Sony is especially safe because their masters are usually at bare minimum a really good mid-2000s 1080p and at best a full 4K. For example, Robin and Marian is from a 4K remaster completely without note.

I know a lot of nerds scream bloody murder if every single disc isn't absolutely beyond Criterion level quality, but I'll perfectly well settle for anything in the "Best this has ever looked on home video" category.

Thatís an interesting choice. Was quite fun listening to the Newcomers podcast where Nicole Byer and Lauren Lapkus watched the Star Wars movies for the first time, and included Spaceballs at the end. It does not seem like a movie that hits well in 2020 if you didnít grow up with it. I still love it though.

That movie sucks too and is also just another liberal wank piece. "Oh woooow, we're so progressive because he liked that movie about homos. I mean sure our industry has spent decades making sure queer voices never make it to the mainstream but wasn't it sad how Oscar bait gays played by straight actors died from a hate crime and/or AIDS again.".

Iím pretty sure it was the latter that sent the UK press into a tizz about it, while using the former as the excuse as to why.

Wild film tho, itís essentially a Red Shoes Diary esque softcore thriller done to an extreme.

Akira came out in Japan (I believe) already and didnít get great reviews with regards to the difference between it and the existing Blu-ray. So if itís the same scan as that and you have it already, eh maybe not worth bothering.

Man, I love that old Streamline dub. Probably sounds like 80s ninja turtles because Kaneda was voiced by Cam Clarke (Leonardo in the 80s TMNT cartoon).

Yeah one of the last films to get a BAN THIS FILTH controversy going in the UK. Like the BBFC came under fire for NOT denying it a certificate.

As a result it's probably better known there than in the US where the distributor just sorta threw it out there.
