    Well apart from a PS2 which caused me nothing but problems I have just entered the world of DVD, my birthday present was a Hitachi HTD-K150 home cinema.
    Now ATM I can get 3 DVD's, im 17 and love Action, Martial Arts and Comedy.
    For my first purchases im thinking of the Lord of The Rings and The Matrix, I will borrow The Fast and The Furious off of my friend (It is actually mine originally but I sold my PS2 and hence my massive collection of 9 DVD's as I didn't think I would be getting a new player anytime soon). Do these films give my new system a good workout?
    I am not sure of my third purchase, I have used a remote hack to make my player Region 0 so I think I will get Blade 2 (30th August in the US right?), Region 0 means it plays all DVD's aside from RCE right, What is the code for RCE BTW?.

    For RCE, your best bet is to try setting your player to Region 1 specifically (not Region 0).

    Action

    Black Hawk Down is a great action film and shows off all the latest effects.

    In terms of classic action Predator has just been re-released,The Terminators are classics, Conan films are great, Total Recall or Running Man has just be remastered. (hehehe can you tell I think Arnie rocks)

    Fight Club is a good action movie if a little surreal.

    Independance day if you want it a little more sedate

    You could look at some John Woo stuff, Face Off, Hard Boiled, A better tomorrow.

    X-Men is good (or you could wait for Spiderman, which is pretty dam good)

    Martial Arts

    Obviously for recent films you can't go wrong with Crouching Tiger.

    Most of the early Jackie Chan films are great (drunken master, Art of snake and crane) although you will not really benefit from having them on DVD :)

    Enter the dragon of course

    Early Jet Li films, once upon a time in China etc. some of the later ones arn't bad, Romeo must Die



    Comedy

    Galaxy Quest is good

    A lot of the monty python has been released now

    Ghostbusters

    Meet the parents

    I like most Jim Carrie movies, but that is a love or hate situation.



    www.dvdreview.com can be quite useful take a look there

    DEUTSCHLAND DEUTCHSLAND UBER ALLES!!!

    Haben Sie einen Wurst?

    Ja, ich habe grosse Knockwurst!

    Danke, ich leibe Kartoffelsalat.



    Hmmm, does that count as thread hijacking?

    Uber means over....... so if something is "uber" it means it is above the rest (think Overlord etc).

    Anyway Chadwick this forum is in international waters, so some people using it are german some will be living in Germany, perhaps they like the use of uber. Stop being uber anal.... annoys me when people always start berating others for using "foreign" languages on the net, not everyone speaks english live it.

    mr chadwick,

    I see that you also have over 2,000 DVDs. Do you house them next to your anger management books.

    Galaxy quest is definitely worth a watch.

    Very funny, particularly if you know a bit about trekkies and trekkers.

    Regards.

    (And not a single use of the word Uber!)

    Doh.... I just said Uber... Doh!!!! I did it again.
