Tak menyesal. Opening sequence je dah stim .. and it gets better with the skyline batman flying scenes ... the movie changes to full screen from time to time to showcase the best scenes that benefited from IMAX filming .. amazing details. The not so important talky bits are in 16:9.

That's no truly BD. It's in DVD format for normal DVD player, but re-encoded from BD source. Ask the vendor. Yes, lots of them, all in bluish casings.

Get a good 1080p LCD/plasma, and once you watch a BD movie with it complete with uncompressed high-def DTS MasterAudio or Dolby TrueHD sounds, then you'll never return to anything less. :mrgreen:

Usually if you import a lot of books, they would inspect the content for the first time. If it is a technical publisher then they would whitelist the publisher.

The so called local Blu-Ray disc are horrible when played on a standard DVD player. The center speaker is so 'boomy' that speech is virtually distorted. The picture is just so so... I prefer the DVD9 over the 'blu-ray' disc when playing in a standard DVD player. Anyone tried it on a blu -ray player? How is it...good?
