Twilight DVD (Malaysia), Crap!

I am sure the American release is worth buying but warning to all Malaysian Twilighters, DON’T BUY THE DVD LOCALLY!!!  Such a waste of my money.

First of all, you would think the picture quality of an original DVD to be crystal clear.  How deceived I felt.  I’d paid premium price for a copy of DVD that could easily be obtained as a pirated version.  In fact, the pirated version may possibly be better in quality!  Unbelieveable.

Secondly, original DVDs are suppose to come with special features, interviews and deleted scenes.  Na-da!  Nothing of that sort are incorporated into this DVD.  The only two things the DVD comes with is a poor quality flimsy Twilight bookmark and a 20% discount voucher with TIMEs bookstore for the purchase of the Twilight saga.  How pathetic!

To all die hard Twilighters’ fans in Malaysia, please either order your DVD from the internet or get a friend from oversea to buy you a copy.  It is guaranteed that you will be deeply disappointed with the local edition.

    Sigh ~
    The Score isn’t available in Malaysia…
    Only the pathetic OST is…
    I’ve been waiting so long for the DVD only to see it today it’s a Malaysian version…
    RM 39.90. SO??!
    Why do they need everything in Malaysian version?!?
    I’m totally disappointed.
    Thanks for the warning and I shan’t purchase it!!!!!!!

      What Score are you looking for?
      It’s RM39.90 in W. Malaysia but it is RM43.90 in E. Malaysia!!! So NOT worth it.
      You are right, we don’t need anything in Malaysian version cause it is always worse.
      But then, ‘they’ need the Malaysian version so that ‘they’ can censor all the so-call ‘kissing’ scenes, violent scenes and etc.
      No problem, really don’t want any other Malaysian Twilighters to be disappointed 🙂

    You are SO right about the censorship issues.
    Aah it just makes me feel mad all over again. Haha.
    Oh I was referring to The Score by Carter Burwell.

    Yes..Winnsaw. Definitely positive coz I have a friend working in the video store. She says that the stock will be in next week. Apparently it comes in a very beautiful giftbox and the great part is…it also contain a special picture album of 16 pages. I was told the price is about RM 89.90 only!!! It is limited edition so I’m going grab it as soon as it is out ! Hey all you twilighters…LOOK OUT FOR IT !

    If you guys need more information, do let me know coz I could ask my friend……

    Just asking..did you buy the 3 disc special or just the 1 disc? Coz only the 3 disc have the special features.

  11. The first DVD that comes our are always the standard one. For special features, you would have to wait for the 2 disc or 3 disc versions. Just in case any of you are looking for one for NM, you can pre-order at our site, http://www.twilightersmalaysia.com (oh, and you have to be a memebr to order).

    Just so you know, you are not alone. Oh, and I previously bought my copy of the Twilight Score from Tower Records in Lot 10. Hafta wait like 2 months though 🙂
