|lol initial d psp carrying case|

the movie disc is 6.67gb in total.
the 2nd disc has over 1 hour worth of bonus material footage. too much space to fill in.
that's over 11gb worth of data in total. the most you can put in is 8.5gb in a dual layer dvd. you do the math.

|I've gone ahead and ordered the boxset. Even though I didn't like the film a lot i'm an Initial D nut So I expect to be making my 500 piece jigsaw puzzle, while reading my Initial D encyclopedia and using the bookmarks well into the Xmas period|

Wow thats awsome Who did you order it from?I was thinking of ordering mine from Yesasia.com
|Posted by: Smiley_DC2 Sep 4 2005, 05:11 PM|
My parents were able to find it for me (by accident) here in Sydney, and picked it up for $100 aus
so no, i didn't order it online .. but after looking through everything, it looks pretty authentic .. the dvd is in perfect condition and presentation

| Unfortunately no one, that speaks the language the film is made in, ever buys the REAL DVD.
Looks like an awesome bundle as a collector's item though.

|Mine showed up last week and I have to agree the subs are perfect. Except I found Itsuki's "I'm a jerk? Yeah I jerk off too" comment somewhat strange|
|Posted by: Slade Sep 7 2005, 12:31 PM|
May I ask where you got your from?
|Posted by: Haku Sep 7 2005, 12:44 PM|
|Hopefully I'm able to find that Special Edition Kit you got there. I know I can't find the special edition DVD online at the moment, but I hope ebay will be stocking those soon enough. I haven't seen the movie myself, but I always wanted to. Quick question, does the movie play eurobeat music during racing scenes? Not that it matters, but I just wanna know.|
|Posted by: Smiley_DC2 Sep 7 2005, 02:32 PM|
NO it doesnt - it uses kinda rappish and funky beats instead
but i have found and am currently downloading a torrent of the movie that is apparently a "Eurobeat version" ~ search 'eurobeat' @ www.torrentspy.com
only 32% complete at the moment .. unsure on the quality (also of the subbing) so ill post back when its complete
you know what, let's sticky this thread!

| i found it on ebay but its mandrin as the primary language? i thought it was japanese.
this isnt in japanese is it?

|aw crud! the item ended! but thanks anyway man! theres always yesasia.com...|
|Posted by: 3drift Sep 8 2005, 02:46 PM|
|i want to get the movie..only because im a big id fan..the movie dissapointed me but its live/id so good...|
|Posted by: Smiley_DC2 Sep 8 2005, 02:56 PM|
| You know, i dont know about any others but for me; my first viewing of the movie kinda soured it for me because i brought my own prejudices and limited my acceptance to the movie .. i.e. it not being authentic to the story and characters, the elimination of eurobeat music and j-pop, etc (plus the subs were horrendous too!)
but after getting my original copy and finally getting to see it in its entirity, it really it a great movie
sure its not for the hardcore initial d fan, but as a HK movie with entertainment value it's pretty damn good!
im just curious as to how the sequel will be played out ~ it may even be Project D already, since Ryosuke asked Takumi to join his new racing team and Takumi accepted
|Posted by: CrypticApathy Sep 8 2005, 04:30 PM|
|thanks now you spoiled the ending|
|Posted by: tinlunlau Sep 9 2005, 09:02 PM|
how is that strange? he's really saying that in cantonese (literally, it's "yeah....and i want to hit airplanes" ("hitting airplanes" or 'daa fei gay" is a cantonese slang meaning "to masturbate").
disregard the mandarin dub translations.
speaking of which, has anyone seen the drifting demo in shanghai? anyone notice the muffler fell off from the EVO3? lol!
|Posted by: Jezza_HR Sep 10 2005, 01:29 PM|
|Sorry for taking so long. I got mine from www.cd-wow.com but you could always try www.yesasia.com and see what they have left.|
|Posted by: Haku Sep 11 2005, 06:09 PM|
|hey smiley! my download for the "eurobeat edition" for the movie is done, and i dunno if yours is complete but i'll tell you anyway...i'm watching it right now and there are NO subs on it. guess i'll have to buy the dvds...|
|Posted by: Smiley_DC2 Oct 3 2005, 02:46 PM|
Damn that sucks, well it started lagging on me big time to i ditched it.
Anyways, as a side note .. for anyone living in Australia the DVD of the movie will be officially released sometime in November according to www.ezydvd.com.au

|^$34.95?? It seems expensive. Whats included in that DVD pack? If ya ask me, i would rather buy the official HK DVD's|
|Posted by: Smiley_DC2 Oct 3 2005, 04:05 PM|

|Posted by: Import_Lexus May 26 2008, 11:49 AM|
yeah i wanted to get it on Blu-Ray too but not sure if the quality is that muhc better, someone should let us know if the blu-ray version is worth getting if you already have the 2 disc dvd
|Posted by: EMAGDNIM Jul 2 2008, 09:00 PM|
|I got the BR of this movie. I bought it from BB using some of my coupons I had from when I bought my MacBook Pro. The quality is good but not eye catching. I haven't seen the DVD so I can't really compare...|
