Congrats. I *guess* :-/

Congrats to whoever ran off with the Japanse VHS release of COMMANDER (aka The Last American Soldier) yesterday! It was up for auction on a certain Japanese eBay seller's page and I'd kept an eye on it all week. Unfortunately, my 50 dollars wasn't enough. Boo-hoo. Some lucky bastard scooped it up for 51 bucks. Well, you win some, you lose some, LOL. Congrats to whoever you are. I already have the Greek tape but it's fullscreen. As far as I know the Japanese tape is fully letterboxed.


  1. People ought to show more respect. When they see I - the great Jack J - make a bid for a tape they should realise their place and step back so I can have what is rightfully mine.


  2. Jack, I've got this on DVD if you're interested.

    Let me know...upon your return!! ;)


  3. Hi Karlos!

    Thank you for your generous and very, very kind offer but I already have the Greek tape and although it's not letterboxed (like the Japanese version) I think it'll have to do for now. If I ever find the original Japanese tape I'll try and get it but until then I think the FS tape will have to do. But thanks again, and thanks for the films you've already sent me. If I have anything (on PAL) you'd like at some stage then don't hesitate to write me.


  4. No worries, bro!

    Now, go see THE EXPENDABLES - that's an order!! ;)


  5. Haha, I've seen the trailer and it sure looks too cool for school!!! xD

  6. Hey Jack,
    a shameless plug that I have one of these for sale. I'd put it on ebay, but prefer to share it first to the readers of your essential blog!
    Any chance you can do a "Shopping tip"? :)

    I'm looking for around 45€ plus postage from France.


Yes, we have a comment filter now! It seems most comments these days come from shit spammers in India so there you go.

Bikini girls with machine guns

Yep, this video is from the one they're watching in Tarantino's JACKIE BROWN. It's an awesome video; I mean all it is is a bunch of scantly clad sexy babes with automatic guns going: "This is an AK47" pow pow pow pow - Haha. Absolutely fantastic! xD.
