Your Danish VHS of YES, MADAM! contains the rare international version (rare to dvd anyway) which contains an entirely different beginning compared to the HK version (i.e. all dvd versions). The intro scene is simply lifted from another movie called WHERE'S OFFICER TUBA?

It's a fact that a good number of people, including myself, have experienced that Something Weird Video's dvd-r releases do indeed "rot", i.e. they start to freeze, skip, and eventually stop working. However, I'm 99% sure this is due to the glue on the paper labels that SWV stick on the discs. I've had SWV dvd-r's that started to go bad after 6 months! :(

I think it's a brilliant idea that MM are willing to make their out-of-print films available as print-on-demand dvd-r's for those fans who can't find them/don't have the money or wish to fork over steep collector's prices for rare OOP editions.

I don't see the problem that some serious collectors might have with it. If you're a serious collector it shouldn't be a problem that they exist on dvd-r. Is it a problem to the VHS collector that a film exists on dvd or bluray? Of course not! All you have to do is track down the original dvd version! Besides, even if MM were to skip the dvd-r format and instread print up a batch of new dvd's, how would that benefit the collection of the serious collector? It would still be a second printing! A reprint!! No good for the anal, serious collector anyway. He wants the 1st print edition. B)

India's First MAA Movie HATHAPAYI Bollywood JKD mo
Hey there, Bollynews2013, welcome to Cinehound.

Those Bollywood chicks certainly look like they can kick some serious ass!! :blink:

Calling this a "trailer" may be stretching the term a tad; it's just the girls practising, not really scenes from a film. But it'll definitely be interesting to check out when it's finished.

Ntsc I presume. :)

Pfffft! :down:

Everything from Japan is perfect. I'm sure it would have been a multi system vcr!!! :angry:


















(maybe) :ph43r:

The dvd-r's that don't work after a few years (actually after 6 months!!) are the ones from SWV and I strongly believe it has to do with the glue they use for the disc labels.

Just because it's able to record doesn't mean you HAVE to do it.  :P

Wow! thank you for pointing that out! never would have came up with that :o

Check this out!! Diabolik uploaded an old 30 sec. commercial about movieboxes:

What's the best vcr ever made?
I remember back in the '80s people who didn't own their own vcr could often rent a "moviebox" at the video store. They were video players that didn't have a record function. I think I only rented one once, but I have no idea of whether the quality was good or not. They were probably long lasting as they were built to be rented out many times. But weather the PQ was top notch is another matter. The best quality is without a doubt a real video recorder. Just because it's able to record doesn't mean you HAVE to do it. :P

Any specific models you guys like?

A couple of years back I did a search to find the ultimate best vcr and JVC recorder was the one that turned up in some tests. I forget the exact model.

I don't trust people who onlygoes by tests and don't use their brain and leave comon sense behind. ;)

It's been a while since I had a JVC but I think my animosity agai st them has something to do with tape eating and hopless remote controls. Might be otber stuff as well. To me it were implrtant how vcrs worked when doing copies as I traded extensivly during the 90's.

:lol: Too right. And I would agree if they were tests done by crappy magazines or in tv programmes, etc. But altho I called them "tests" I was mainly referring to websites like forums were expert users talked about them. Like Cinehound is a forum with many Dutch vhs experts so you would probably trust people here if you wanted to know about NL tapes, right? Well, trusting people on message boards like tv & video boards is something that'd I'd be inclined to do as well. And like I said in my last post, it was reported that there was quite a bit of difference in quality between the cheaper models and the later, expensive ones.

EDIT: I found the model number, it's still sitting in my eBay auto search. :lol:

JVC HR-S9911

(Jönas said he hated JVC; maybe he had one of the cheaper models as apparently there's quite a difference in quality between the cheaper models and the expensive ones)

Also, go here for some tips.

And as Videohunter would say in the old day do some homework. Find boards that have that kind of info. Do a ton of googles. And ask Miltos what he thinks about it. :blink:

I have a Panasonic vcr you can buy. Brand new (when I bought it). 4 heads. Mono audio. Manual tracking. :hello!:

I'm so sorry to hear that, mate. That truly sucks - both in reg. to your relationship and the tape. :(

If they can still include the extras despite it being dvd-r then I'm certainly positive to the idea of dvd-r reprints.

Oh, I see your first two links are just the scans. No worries, mate. :up:

Wauw!! Thanks, mate. Yes, that's from that film. I guess they released some of the chapters as separate 8mm films!!

I can only open your third link! Can you please check the two two links?

There's a good screen grab comparison between the two versions here:

- and bookmark that site! It's a good one.

ANGELS - Danish biker movie with gore and HC
Thanks for the suggestion anyway. And even if that's a fake "Danish" sex biker film I'd still be interested in watching it. I might have to order it. :lol:

ANGELS - Danish biker movie with gore and HC
Thanks, Jönas.

Hmm, interesting. I just did a check on their site and the film doesn't come up with either of the titles nor just "Danish".

I found this one:
http://www.somethingweird.com/product_info...oducts_id=22500

- which, as it says in the text, was sold as a "Danish" biker sex movie but apparently it was fake advertising simply due to Denmark having had that huge porn image in those days.

Some of the credits sound more fake than fake (and actually more Swedish than Danish) :lol:

Starring: Brigit Kroyer
