I have a quick DDD House question, I'm going to order the 36th Chamber BD set but its obviously going to be way over the customs limit, could I ask them to write a different value (say $US20) on the package?


AFAIK, they're pretty helpful in that department, but I haven't used them in a while... so maybe wait for someone else to post/confirm.

Been keeping track of watched movies this year with icheckmovies and i'm pleased to see i've managed 104 so far,which is probably not far from last year's entire total.Still in the process of reducing my collection which in a way gives me more opportunity to watch stuff i haven't seen.

Thanks. I use the site quite a lot. Main purpose to keep track of what I have seen (I used to use an another site as well listsofbests but that is gone now) and secondary use is to see different lists and work on those.

I keep seeing the TV ad for the Keanu Reeves movie 'Knock Knock'
Isnt it kind of an unofficial remake of Death Game (1977) with Colleen Camp? The plot sounds very similar anyway

It is yeah. I've only seen Death Game via one of the worst dvds you'll ever see so it was hard to judge,but i found it interesting and Colleen Camp & Sondra Locke were very believable psychos.it's been a little seen film down the yeear,surprising as i even remember it getting a uk cinema release and seeing the ads on tv.

Only in a country crazy for cinema double bills back in the 70's could Enter The Dragon play as the 2nd half of a pairing with one of Bruce Li's worst :lol:

So now I know everything about William Shakespeare, William Wordsworth, William Blake, William Carlos Williams, Adrienne Rich, and John Keats. Including that most great poets are called William for some reason. And I have translated half of their poems into shitty Japanese.

Sometimes life takes you to very unexpected places...

Might be time to check out the early Sion Sono films again now that I understand something about poetry.
