Just finished watching A Clockwork Orange and Joker back-to-back:sing::D


Now, all I have, are POSITIVE thoughts:joy:
You should have tried to squeeze Taxi Driver in too. Not that I'm trying to tip you over the edge or anything.

Can't wait for this. Rare movie that I'm prepared to double/triple/quadruple dip for

As crazy as it sounds it’s actually possible as the release date for the 4K Amaray in the US is Dec 17th and in Australia it’s Jan 8th but in saying that the Premium for Shazam! has been delayed by a few months so maybe this has been resolved now for faster approval/s.
Wow, really? That's a lot earlier than usual... surprised they've even announced a release date so soon tbh. Not that I'm complaining though! :D

I knew there was a reason I hadnt jumped on the standard steelbook only releases in the UK.... I'd be down for paying more for a premium just for the grandour of the movie(not sure I'll watch it much, but like Logan, its brilliant and kinda character perfection)

I never knew what the big attraction with Taxi Driver was. I watched it once and found it a snooze fest!

Obviously a huge fan of Scorsese and DeNiro. Acting was top drawer and all that.

But that particular film just doesn't do anything for me.

I felt the same until some years later when I gave it another go and completely fell in love with it... same case for A Space Odyssey. Guess I just had to be in the right mood to enjoy them.

1. No releases for 2 months.
This year has been a quite hectic one for me and our market due to two main reasons. One of our major partners has exited the business and the projects we wanted to work on have been all delayed because of this. We expect to see the restoration in balance by the end of the year and hope that we can continue working on the best release for our customers. Our second reasons is because of the merger between Fox and Disney. Due to the merger, we have lost the access to the Fox's products and until we get a green light from company, we won't be able to handle any of the Fox products.

2. What's in the oven?
At the moment, we are baking below releases for the end of this year and early next year.
1. Us
2. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
3. Ad Astra
4. Joker
5. Scarface
Above list is a somewhat confirmed list of releases we aim to start pre-ordering from November to early next year.

3. 4th Anniversary
I can't believe that we are approaching our 4th anniversary with this company. Last year's anniversary wasn't really well prepared and we've moved the sales to February where things are quieter for us but this year we plan to bring our Anniversary promotions and sales in December. We are cooking some interesting and beneficial promotions for our customers so please give us little more time to announce the event.

4. How are things in the company?
As I've said previously, I've been getting a lot of emails from our customers whether if we were out of business only after 2 months of no release from us. I thought everyone was OK with some break with collecting for 2 months but this really enlightens me to work faster and release more products in the future
:). Everyone in the company is doing OK as always and despite the difficulties internally and externally with the country and the company, we are holding our grounds and working our best to produce what our customer want with our products. Thank you very much for all the interest and emails. They really gave me a reason to post some update to remind our customers that we are still around!

5. Future releases other than what's mentioned in 2.
For 2020, we don't know how things will change with the studios but I expect things to be quite similar as 2018 or 2019. We will probably have between 7-8 releases and we will continue our DC lines and movies that we loved from the past and current. We've been not really posting much updates other than product infos because things have been quite slow around here with the approval and designing but we will try our best to speed up things for you guys.
Thank you very much for all the interest and our support line is always open for you guys, just drop an email anytime if you have questions or just simply say hi, there should be someone to reply back to you every time.
I will post more updates with Us and 4th Anniversary sale soon and thanks again for your support.

Best regards,
John

Finally saw this on Thurs... going to be very tempted to one-click it I reckon.
Loved it that much then?

Think am going for round 3 tomorrow as mom’s choosing it for movie day(we do a double bill every couple weeks: she picks a movie then I pick one. Am undecided for mine but she’s picked this)

Yep, I thought it was something really special and very thought-provoking... in a sad kind of way. I'm personally happy to see DC have gone back to using darker themes.

Your mom clearly has great taste! I went to see it with my dad, and he liked it just as much as I did. Hopefully you both also find it worthy of the praise it's been receiving.
