I own it, its the awesomest movie ever! (Just skip to the wench-on-wench and the skeleton fight scenes)The 2nd. disk says "HD DVD", but somebody told me it was really just Windows Media 9. I don't have a HD DVD player or Win PC to verify anything tho'.

I think it's funny that people are saying porn in HD won't work because it would "show too much". Before there was video, porn was shot on 35 mm FILM, which has higher resolution than HD. I never heard any complaints about "too much resolution".

in terms of technical aspects, i would imagine there were more adult movies using film as their medium pre 80's. so people have to remaster "films" like debbie does dallas to get advantage. gosh, i can imagine it now... TrueHD 7.1, DTS-HD Master =.

but by the 80's... i think the different will be moot on SD-DVD and HD mediums. the irony is that the porn industry is just starting to acquire porn in HD prosumer/consumer cams. the latest entry being Canon's HV10 for $1,300 MSRP and an already released $900 sony HD cam. =/.

Actually, they changed that law a few years ago and now the bits may be as naughty as they please.

So I guess the message is, find a friend in Japan who will act as your shipping agent.

From the article in the link...
"The movie includes both an HD-DVD and standard DVD version due to HD-DVD's small penetration rate thus far. "

Small penetration rate made me laugh.

It is region free for HD DVDs since they currently have no region. You just wouldn't be able to play the SD version of it.

If there are any Japanese forum viewers out there who would like to ship this disc to their American brothers (all expenses paid, of course), please let me know! :)
