Question?

Recommended Posts

My friend was able to get some Ali G DVD’s some of his stuff before he went on HBO. He is the problem she got them from someone from the UK so the format of the DVD’s wont work on any DVD player from the US. Does anyone know how we can get them to play either on a CPU or on a DVD player or is she shit out of luck?

Think she's shit out of luck, Mirza. DVD players in North America are region 1 (and perhaps South America as well). The rest of the world is region 2 (Europe, Asia, etc.) Region 1 dvd's are not compatible with region 2 dvd players and vice versa.

you should be able to change the region if you have a newer computer. I did this recently with a PVD dvd on my dell. It will allow you to change it like 5x or less

That's good to know. I didn't know about how it would do on a computer just knew it wouldn't work on a dvd player. Still, I hate the thought of watching a movie exclusively on a computer. :-\

about Innit

An oasis of chortles in the laugh desert that is Channel 4's The 11 O'Clock Show, Ali G has since progressed to both his own programme and comedy icon status. Innit, meanwhile, rounds up the finest moments from the rapper's time on 11 O'Clock with some extra footage thrown in for good measure, which show Sacha Baron Cohen's vowel-dropping, dope-smoking gangsta wannabe at home in his Berkshire "hood". However, it is the previously seen interview material that produces the best moments as Ali, resplendent in a series of eye-searing day-glo tracksuits, grills the likes of ex-film censor James Ferman ("Why did they ban Chocolate Orange?"), the late Tory educational expert Sir Rhodes Boyson ("Do you think porn stars ought to teach sex education in schools?") and a pre-Clapham Common Ron Davies ("What is so good about Wales? Because, no disrespect, but me's hears it's crap.") Exactly who is being lampooned--publicity-hungry celebs? misogynistic rappers? white middle-class wiggers?--is never entirely made clear but the results are rarely less than hilarious. Only the ever-argumentative Tony Benn succeeds in taking on his shades-sporting persecutor. Anyone yet to fall under Ali G's spell, though, is unlikely to be convinced by his opening assertion that 85% of the video's cost price will be spent on top-quality marijuana.

Now you know, next time you buy a DVD player, get a multi-zone one.
