  1. this is to Phill! Thought I had to comment after the stupid comment. Some people did not get the DVD. In fact in Melbourne the free DVD was not given away with the paper.

    I could make the same comment why did they give free DVDs away? After all you could have gone to the free event or watched it on Movie Extra.

    Any light bulbs go up over your head, Phill?

  2. why bother???? all the films were released on a free DVD in the sun herald the week after tropfest. if u really wanted to watch them. u would’ve gone to the free event. or gotten the free dvd.
