Optimum, take note - feel free to bung trailers on your dvd's, but please, make them optional and in keeping with the title. Adverts for popular peanut based confectionary items are not something I need to have rammed down my throat when I settle down to watch a dvd that i've gone out and bought. Even if they do star Mr. T.

the BR has no forced trailers.. i agree they ARE very annoying when you can't skip them - i find the forward button always helps. disney are/were another prime offender. the other annoying non-skipable advert is the anti piracy one, which i always think is a bit of a pain - especially as we're the ones who have bought the dvd in the first place.
I always think of the IT Crowd anti piracy advert - http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=d82Lq2rVB_4

It amuses me more.

Man! I watched 10 minutes of Repo and had to turn it off. My ears were bleeding. Anthony Head is really wanking for coins in that one

And for my Takashi Miike collection:

Gozu
City of lost souls
Agitator

and the Takashi Miike omnibus boxset containing:

Full metal yakuza (already have this so will get rid of my old copy)
Sabu
Shinjuku triad society
Rainy dog
Ley lines
Young thugs - innocent blood
Young thugs - nostalgia
Osaka tough guys

I'd say give it a chance, although I managed about 5 minutes less of it than Doris did..

Mr O got his Tokyo Gore Police today. Apparently there was a problem with the discs. Looking at it when it arrived its a dirt cheap release, so maybe they didn't get pressed properly.
