    DVDs. You can get a Zone 1 dvd for almost as cheap as a local zone 3 dvd here.

    Code 1, Zone 1, Region 1 ...whatever, ha ha so confusing

    If I were you I will go for the extended version.

    I am really losing hope with the quality of the local dvd. Some of the movies only have stereo sound, imagine that.

    Yep. The price of code 1 dvd sold in Singapore has remain the same despite the falling US$. It is much cheaper to just purchase them from Amazon.
