Yep the one and the same with Collin Chou and Yuen Wah :) Thanks. I never thought I would find so many in the such little time that I started buying them.

Will post pics when that one comes in (which should be tomorrow or Saturday at the latest).

there were two US releases. Tone I have is indeed the widescreen release. I was very lucky to win it on ebay for the low price that I got it for. I literally won at the last second cause I had a higher max bid of like 50 cents.

Every once in a while the widescreen one will go on ebay, but the sellers don't identify it in the link. you have to click on the item to see that it is. Or notice the cover difference. The fullscreen cover has a pink banner cutting across the top right corner. The widescreen cover has a yellow banner saying "Widescreen Edition" across the top of the cover.

Yeah it's a shame on Pedicab Driver. I'm still very happy with it. The DVD transfer I made is flawless minus that one part, and it wasn't so bad. What happend was it froze, and I thought it would autocorrect itself so I let it be but after about 20 seconds of waiting, I realized it wasn't going to. So I just pressed forward a couple times to move pass it. In all, I only lost like a few seconds of the movie that had like 1 or 2 lines of dialogue.

I tried the novus cleaner, i applied number 1 first then number 2.

maybe I did it wrong or should try again. After that clean I played it again and it still gave the same problem in the same spot.

I'll try it once more tho and see how it goes.

here's what the problem looks like. Sorry for the quality, recorded through my phone.

well i reread it and it didn't say that it couldn't be used for it....just that it was too abrasive. so that's why I never tried.
