some of the reasons I have it on my top films list and the reasons I wanted people to see it.  I felt that it was lost between the cracks, and it shocked me at how good it was when I watched it, because i'd never heard of it.

Any others on the list you think of that way?

I’m not positive but I think I was an early promoter of Validation here.

I'm not sure where I found it.  It could have been you, B, or perhaps I found it elsewhere.  I know I was already familiar with the main actor because of Bones.

Ive watched parts 1 and 2 (of 6) of The human Condition.  I’m going to use this opportunity to watch the last 4 parts. It was your unbridled enthusiasm that convinces me to pick up the blu Ray after all.

I'd love to see them all on Blu Ray.

I think it is only available in the UK in which case it was Region B locked. But many of the SG players can change regions using a code on the remote so I was lucky

I don't have a Blu Ray player, which is why I say "I wish".  Not happening anytime soon.

It is a dying format anyway so no point these days. Quality of codecs and streaming is getting close to being able to match BR. It is just being able to find the content though.
