Heck yes!!!  Time to 'take it back'.
Hmmm, looks like your right then. But I do have to admit, for a bootleg it is sure great quality, still doesn't make me feel the least bit sorry for getting rid of my Media Blasters R1 for it though, but thanks for the info.
hmmm.

Thankyou For Smoking

It's a bootleg. The quality would be exactly the same as an official DVD seeing as it's a direct digital-to-digital rip-off. Bootleg doesn't automatically equal c**p.

Stuff like this always shows up on eBay, but they are region free bootlegs of the official DVDs. I did some research before buying the uncut Dutch two-disc release and I found no legitimate mention of a three-disc set. Even the UK release is just the two-disc and the anime bundled together in a slip case. I believe our very own Gabe has a similar release to yours.
I want the 7th Heaven DVDs to start being released Again. Seasons 3-10.

Hold on? Ichi the Killer three disc set? If you're talking about the UK release with the anime, then it's had about three minutes cut out of it. If it's one of the three disc sets from eBay then it's a bootleg.

I was referring to the R1 discs from Media Blasters and Tartan, usually I will only get imported versions when I know there wont be an official R1 release (i.e. Casshern Ultimate Edition, Down to Hell, Azumi 1&2, ect.) or if they are simply superior then the R1 (i.e. Ichii the Killer 3-disc set, Ultimate Versus).
Chris Gould wrote: Do Americans generally not invest in multi-region machines then?

I'd say this is generally true.  I'd go even further and say that most Americans don't even know or understand region encoding.  I don't know if either my Sony or Pioneer can be hacked, but I just don't really care that much.  There is plenty for me to watch in region 1.  

Another reason would be the PAL/NTSC issue.  I'm not sure how many multiregional players or even the TV sets themselves can handle both formats.  If it were just the region encoding, I may hack my player for the few titles that are available in other regions that aren't available here.  But, I am not sure what else I would have to do to convert the video.

Also, the cost of importing other regions would put me off.  I've said it before, but other that Criterions, it is hard form me to justify paying over $16 for a new DVD.  You just have to wait 6 months and the price drops.
Chris, most of us are stupid/stubborn, that's all. Even though I have a hacked player, I'm still hesitant to order from other regions... it's gotta be a title I really want.
Honestly, I don't even know if my current DVD player is Multi-Region. It probably is, but I only own Reg1 DVDs. It's not that I don't like DVDs from other regions and wouldn't want any of them(That I, Robot LE with Sonny's head was amazing looking), typically either the price tag doesn't justify importing and I WAY prefer picking up a DVD in person to make sure the cover isn't damaged. On the rare occasion that none of the stores in the 5676 malls with 2 miles of me doesn't carry a DVD I'm looking for (i.e. Dazed and Confused Criterion), I'll order through Amazon.

Plus, with most major studio releases, we seem to get them first so we don't usually even think about having to import.
Do Americans generally not invest in multi-region machines then? It seems that way from the majority of posts I read. Someone else mentioned Lady Vengeance and The Great Yokai War, both of which are already available (there are at least four different versions of Lady V).

Guess I'm just used to everyone I know having a multi-region machine, or at least one that can be made multi-region. Even my sister-in-law's little 14" TV/DVD combo can be hacked.
Not in region 1.
Weren't they released already in SE?
'A Fistful of Dollars'
'For A Few Dollars More'

"Superman II The Richard Donner Cut"
"Superman Returns"

Director7, movies like Garfield get SE DVDs to capitalize on their upcoming sequels... it's a marketing thing.

A re-release of the original is possible, but in my eyes somewhat unlikely. I have the ten-disc set and it's more Matrix than I'll ever need. There's no way Warner could possibly offer me anything to want to upgrade any of the films in it.... short of alternate versions.
Nowhere it's just a DVD that I can guarantee is coming, because if garbage movies like Garfield get SE's than I'm sure that Matrix will get one. Or maybe when long rumored Matrix: Genesis comes out we can expect it.

Yeah? They've planned it for 3 years from now? Interesting....

I would have thought they did eveything they wanted to with the massive Boxed Set



Not quite, The Matrix disc inside that expensive package is nothing more than the SAME disc you can buy for $10 at Best Buy. What should come on the 10th Anniversary is a NEW disc with new menus and features.

And as innovative as that movie was (just check how many movies have ripped it off since) it deserves a 4-disc, because there are a ass-load of extra features that I am aware of that they have. They spent 6-months ALONE on learning the martial arts in the movie, that said, they have alot of extra film lying around.


I don't doubt that there's material available to release for an  eventual SE in the future, but Matrix Disc in the boxed set is definetly not the same individual disc that has been available since 1999. I have both and the menus are clearly different, fitting in with the are & are DVDs. Chris even did an amazing article comparing the different versions HERE.

I'm just wondering where you have heard about a new edition being prepped.

dvds you're REALLY looking forward to?
they've really been coming out with some good dvds lately..and I'm glad, because about 40 dvds of mine were stolen a bit ago...but now all these good dvds are making up for the ones I lost....does that make sense? lol

so I'm looking forward to the Brak show and Sealab 2021 the most..I'm definitely a fan of the old Adult Swim shows.

what're you looking forward to the most?
