Okey…
i’ve talk about Transformers. Well… maybe some of you did not understand those region thingy in standard DVD and Blu-ray disc.

maybe u thought it’s the same, but it’s not. ok.. here’s the crap 😛

For standard DVD, as we already know it have 3 main region that we know (although it have 6 in total).

1. Region 1US, US territories and Canada
2. Region 2
UK, Europe, Japan, South Africa and Middle East
3. Region 3
Southeast and East Asia

Since we’re Malaysian, of course we are in Region 3 list which is also include other country like Cambodia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Laos, Myanmar, Philippines, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam. All genuine DVD in the shop are already in region 3 unless you purchase it online (amazon.com, ebay.com).

Those DVD in Region 1 & 2  still can be play IF your DVD player is “multi region” or in other words it’s “region-free’ players. Not to forget that your TV must be NTSC-compatible if you’re looking for region 1 DVD. Those new TV have this kind of format. if you have a very-super-duper old skool TV which only have PAL. forget about it. 😛

For Blu-ray Disc is different thing. Blu-ray region divided into 3 region.

1. Region A / 1North America, Central America, South America, Japan, Taiwan, North Korea, South Korea, Hong Kong and Southeast Asia
2. Region B / 2
Europe, Greenland, French territories, Middle East, Africa, Australia and New Zealand
3. Region C / 3
India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Mainland China, Pakistan, Russia, Central and South Asia

See the difference? In standard dvd, Southeast Asia is in region 3 DVD, while in Bluray, we are in region A/1. This mean, we can play those region A/1 Blu-ray disc which is the same like they sell in US. But if you’re planning to buy from amazon.co.uk (which is cheaper) you may need to look for Region free Blu-ray disc since their stock is region B/2. make sure u check it properly to avoid wasting your money.

If you’re not sure which movie is region b locked or free region, you may visit this website to check: http://bluray.liesinc.net/index.php?region=b

It have a list of Blu-ray movie from region A-C. For a better understanding, I include a picture of Blu-ray disc region:

Orange: Region A
Green: Region B
Purple: Region C

And again a reminder to you, amazon.co.uk is for europe region, so whenever u want to buy a Blu Ray movie, kindly look for REGION FREE movie, avoid buying Region 2, if u don want to waste your hard-earned-butt-kicking cash.

‘Semi-Pro’ Scores $15M, Tops Box Office March 3, 2008

Will Ferrell‘s basketball comedy “Semi-Pro” dribbled to the top of the weekend box office, but it fell short of his previous blockbuster openings in the sports spoof genre, according to studio estimates Sunday.

The New Line Cinema film, starring Ferrell as the owner of a fictional basketball franchise, grossed $15.3 million in its weekend debut. That was lackluster compared to Ferrell’s 2006 NASCAR parody “Talledega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby,” which opened at $47 million, and last year’s figure skating comedy “Blades of Glory,” which earned $33 million in its first weekend.

Box office analysts said “Semi-Pro” likely suffered because it was released during a normally slow season and was rated R, while “Talledega Nights” and “Blades of Glory” were rated PG-13.

“Will Ferrell is always a draw and audiences love him. But this particular weekend is not quite as strong as his earlier efforts,” said Paul Dergarabedian, president of the box-office tracker Media By Numbers LLC.

New Line representatives declined to comment. Last week, media conglomerate Time Warner Inc. announced that New Line would be merged with its Warner Bros. Entertainment studio to cut costs and improve profitability.

Last weekend’s top film, the Sony Pictures terrorism thriller “Vantage Point,” dropped to second place with $13 million in ticket sales, bringing its two-week domestic total to $41 million.

Sony’s new release “The Other Boleyn Girl” performed better than expected, opening at No. 4 with $8.3 million at 1,166 theaters. Its $7,118 per theater average outdistanced other movies in the marketplace.

The weekend’s other opening, the Summit Entertainment fantasy romantic comedy “Penelope,” debuted in eighth place with $4 million.

Box office revenues overall were down for the third straight week. The top 12 movies grossed $81 million, down 10 percent from last weekend and 25 percent from the same weekend in 2007.

Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Media By Numbers LLC. Final figures will be released Monday.

Writers Guild of America members gave a resounding thumbs-up to the guild’s new contract agreement at membership meetings held Saturday in Gotham and L.A., clearing the path for the three-month-old writers strike to end by midweek.

At the L.A. meeting at the Shrine Auditorium, WGA West leaders told the crowd of more than 3,500 members that the WGA West board and WGA East council would meet Sunday morning to formally recommend the deal for ratification, and to approve a special 48-hour vote among members about whether to end the strike. The boards are also expected to begin the process of holding a 10-day ratification vote for members to formally seal the new three-year contract with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers.

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street January 24, 2008

Sweeney Todd. Filem baru dari Johnny Depp. mengisahkan seorang tukang gunting yang juga seorang pembunuh. Well.. kalau peminat johnny depp macam aku, sure takkan melepaskan peluang nak tgk filem nih.

Synopsis:villain appearing in various English language works starting in the mid-19th century as a barber and an early example of a serial killer. His weapon of choice is a straight razor, with which he cuts his victims’ throats. In some versions of the story Mrs. Lovett, who is his lover, friend, or partner in crime (and who is variously Marjorie, Sarah, Nellie, Shirley or Claudette) hides the crimes by butchering the corpses of Todd’s victims, baking their flesh into meat pies, and selling them to unknowing customers. He is also assisted by an unwitting apprentice lad named Tobias Ragg, who later aids in unmasking his crimes. In most versions of the story, Sweeney either helps or hinders (sometimes both) the love affair of a young woman, Johanna Oakley, who in the musical stage production and 2007 film, is Todd’s daughter Johanna Barker, and a sailor named Mark Ingesterie or, later, Antony Hope. Sweeney Todd may not be a wholly fictional character. In two books, the horror and killing story writer Peter Haining argues that Sweeney Todd was a historical figure who committed his crimes around 1800. Nevertheless, other researchers who have tried to verify his citations find nothing in these sources to back Haining’s claims.[3][4][5] There is, however, a similar story reputed to have occurred on the Rue de la Harpe in Paris that likely influenced the stories of Todd.

Fairil, the most ambitious of the four, inspires them to enter the Window Washing Olympics for the most coveted contract of all – cleaning the windows of KLCC.
