DVD shopping addict

Guys and gals, I'm going to confess about an addiction I have in which several of my bootlegging friends criticize me for.  I have a tendency to buy DVD's.  Not just any DVD's but lots of DVD's.  This week alone has costed me a hefty price itself.  As many of you within North America know, Michael Bay's live-action film adaptation of the classic 80s animated series "Transformers" has just released on DVD earlier this week.  Being the Transformers geek that I am, I bought it on the first day of release.  Due to the fact that I bought an exclusive gift set from Best Buy, it costed over 40 bucks for the bundle which includes a randomly picked die-cast titanium figurine of a battle-damaged Optimus Prime, a 32 page booklet and of course, the 2 disc set DVD of Michael Bay's "Transformers". 

Also available is the deluxe 2 disc set of the anime film "Tekkonkinkreet" (yes, that is how it's spelt), the first feature-length anime film directed by Michael Arias, a Caucasian man from America (you may have seen his work in "The Animatrix").  Just as it is with "Transformers", it is also a very big bundle and that also costed me around $40.  This is the most expensive weekly DVD purchase I have ever made.  I really need to slow down on my DVD purchases because I hardly have time to watch any of them.

So yes, I will say it again.  I am a DVD shopping addict.

各位﹐我有件事要跟大家承認。我有一個連我的朋友時常批評我的引誘。這就是我經常買DVD影碟的壞習慣。不只是普普通通買幾部DVD而是買很多DVD影 碟。我在今個星期已經花了不少錢。你們該知道米高比爾執導的改編自80年代經典動畫劇集<變形金剛>的真人電影版在今週推出了正版DVD。作 為<變>迷的當然在第一天已買了。由於我的是BEST BUY特別禮盒裝﹐我已為它花了成$40來買這套影碟。盒裝裡有一個微型的柯拍文玩具﹐一本精美畫冊(總共有32頁)。當然套裝少不了電影<變形金 剛>的雙碟特別版啦﹗

除了<變>片之外還有日本動畫電影<惡童>的香港三區雙碟特別限量版。這不只是米高 哎里亞斯的第一次執導的日本動畫片﹐這亦是第一次由外國人執導的日本動畫電影。(你可能曾經看過<21世紀殺人網絡之動畫外傳>。他有份做 的。) 像我買的<變形金剛>一樣﹐本碟包裝是非常之龐大。同樣也花了我$40加幣。今週可能是我有生以來購買DVD得最貴的一次了。我需要停下來因 為我沒時間把它觀看。

所以我會再說多一次﹐我是一個購買影碟的癮君子。

That makes two of us. I sold over 300 dvds on ebay and still have nearly 200 left in my collection. And I take great care of each one. I'm definitely a DVD addict. I support Original DVD's

why are you buying dvds when there's blu ray? anyway, Transformers won't be out on blu ray cos Paramount agreed to make hd dvd for 2 years. sucks! hd dvd had to pay them to do that cos they know blu ray is kicking their ass.
