These boot(leg)s are made for walking

Blah blah blah so i went out and bought a buncha bootleg DVDs tonight. I took some pics. For no other reason than to just show off really.

Now what’s funny about the Dukes DVD is the MPAA rating on the back cover.

I never knew The Dukes Of Hazzard was Rated R for Violence Including Grisly Images of Torture, Nudity and Language. Ha ha ha. Oh you silly pirates. Cutting and pasting from other DVD covers to make your fake DVD covers (they got that off the FearDotCom DVD if you must know).

Also, note the shiny holographic effect on the cover that i caught on camera. See, here in Asia, pirated DVDs are the norm. So much so that it can actually be HARDER to find legit DVDs than it is to find pirated DVDs. Pirated DVDs are so normal that there’s even pirated versions of pirated DVDs.

Hence the addition of the shiny holographic effect on the covers nowadays. They do this so that other pirates can’t pirate the pirated DVDs. So if they ever try to just burn a copy of the pirated DVD and sell it with a photocopied copy of the holographic pirated DVD cover (which is what they do), the photocopied cover comes out all weird looking and you’ll know that it’s an inferior copy of what was already a copy in the first place. I guess it’s the pirates way of having copy protection. Which is quite hilarious if you really think about it.

Anyhow, i understand Sin City comes out next Tuesday. We’ve had the bootleg on sale in stores for quite a while now, like maybe a week or two. Oh and i wouldn’t bother getting if i were you. It’s pretty bare bones. Think Kill Bill Vol. 1. No commentary tracks. Only an 8 minute behind the scenes thing. I’d wait for the special edition that’s coming out in the next coupla months. Unless you really want the theatrical cut. Because i don’t think the special edition will have it on there. Or maybe it will. Not quite sure. Just stay tuned for more details i guess.

Oh i also bought Batman Begins (not pictured). Which i thought was a boring ass movie. So boring that i stopped watching after 45 minutes, leaving the file on my computer (i downloaded it a while back) to rot for a week, and then finally firing it up again after mustering enough patience to sit through the rest of the flick. And now i have it on DVD.

Sometimes i like to punish myself by buying movies i hate. No big whoop though. Not like i spent $19.99 to get it.

I got all three DVDs for like 3 bucks each.

  2. Apart from Burton’s films I thought batman begins the best of the batman franchise, and an overall good movie. It puts more focus on the dark undertone of the comics. It pisses all over any of Schumacher’s films anyway.

  7. Hulk was okay, Daredevil… not so much.

    Besides, Hulk featured Jennifer ass-to-ass Connelly.

  13. I don’t think the R rating was wrong. Everything with Jessica Simpson contains some nudity, is torture to watch and her language ability is pretty frightening as well.

    Do the pirates include a long ass FBI warning that takes forever to skip through, just to be really authentic?

  14. they actually do!

    one of the funniest things ever was when i started up this one dvd (cant remember which one) and at the beginning was this anti downloading/stealing/bootlegging PSA.

    the one where it’s like:

    “You wouldn’t steal a purse.”

    “You wouldn’t steal a car.”

    “You wouldn’t steal a DVD.”

    “Buying pirated DVDs is illegal.”

    “Don’t download movies.”

    i thought it was hilarious

  18. Speaking of movies, anyone ever see the trailer for “Tom-Yum-Goong”? Looks cool. In fact, it looks so cool that i’m gonna promote it one more time: Tom-Yum-Goong!

  19. clicked a Google for Justin today. Wasn’t hard, it had Katherine Heigl in it.

    Katherine Heigl is hot. Her boyfriend is fairly bland. Nice to see she goes for the average guys. The music video is damn cheesy though. That won’t be pirated any time soon.

  21. The Dukes Of Hazzard was Rated R for Violence Including Grisly Images of Torture, Nudity and Language because that is what is going on in the theater ’cause the movie is so bad, other than the Jessica Simpson in Daisy Dukes. . .
