    Unbelievable, I may have found my new favourite film! Got in on DVD in Makro for 4 quid today. It's just ridiculously cool.

    Any other fans?

    There's a DTS version!?!?!? Drool!

    Mine (R2) only has DD2.0, will have to keep eyes peeled for Taxi 2.

    Yeah I also love Taxi but have to disagree slightly with the comments above - I didn't find the second film to be anywhere near as good as the original. The first film is great fun and hugely enjoyable but I found Taxi 2 to be a little too forced in terms of the comedy, it seemed like they tried to up the ante with stupidness and it just didn't work as well. To be fair though, I think I picked up both films from DDDHouse for a combined price of around £14 so you can't complain!

    Just ordered Taxi 2 from play, was indeed 8 quid. Although I obviously can't pass comment on a flick i haven't seen - any film with Evos getting thrashed has a good starting point.

    For that price you simply can't go wrong....... The first isn't anamorphic but picture quality is pretty good considering. Sound-wise I wouldn't expect Saving Private Ryan but there are some nice effects throughout. The second film improves in all areas with an anamorphic pic and DTS track. Order them, you won't regret it for that money mate.

    Just ordered Wasabi and Yamakasi from HKflix for about 10 quid a piece.

    The Big Blue is very good as well!!!
