So, Salam, if I read your post correctly, you are OK with pirated movies? Sorry, theft is theft. Pay the price or do not watch.jim_boy wrote:Hi,
Yes, agree that everything in Singapore is getting more expensive.
Luckily, I can get good and cheap stuff when I'm in Jakarta. I almost travel there every month, so am quite familiar with the market rate of DVDs there.
In Jakarta, a DVD is less than S$1. It's pirated but quality is as good as the real thing. Also sometimes you can get really good old vintage stuff along the road side or at the famous DVD centres.
I remember getting Scarface, the first movie(?) by Al Pacino, and movies from the 70s and 80s. Also the entire 007 James Bond Series from Sean Connery to current actor can be purchased there.
Now I have people already asking me to help buy some new titles when I return to Jakarta soon.

Depends on what part of the world you happen to live in. Seems like Nth Korea have discovered the holy grail of copyright enforcement. Why spend time and money locking up people when you can just execute them?:jim_boy wrote: Watching pirated stuff doesn't kill someone, it only makes some people angry.
