"The Burmese military junta has ordered DVD vendors in Burma (otherwise known as Myanmar) not to distribute the film due to the movie's content. is available on bootlegs however, and it is a great hit amongst the Karen Freedom Fighters and Burmese exiles critical of the Burmese . According to Karen Freedom Fighters, this movie gave them a great boost of morale. Burmese Freedom Fighters have even adopted dialogue from the movie (most notably "Live for nothing, or die for something") as rallying points and battle cries. "That, to me," said , "is one of the proudest moments I've ever had in film." Also, overseas Burmese praise the movie for its vivid portrayal of the Burmese military's oppression of the Karen people."
"Actor Maung Maung Khin, who played the cruel Burmese dictator Tint, fought for the Karen Rebels in real life, and was afraid of his family getting murdered by the enemy if he took this role. He went ahead and took the role anyway."
What effect does Stallone anticipate this image will have on Japanese viewers?
"You know, it's a two-edged sword," he said. "I was hoping that they understand that this is not a Sylvester Stallone self-indulgent . That actual, real people that are contributing to hopefully the betterment (of the situation) and reporting the truth, pay with their life. So, I'm just trying to take that harsh brutality and segue into a film, and it's a very delicate line.
"But the most important thing was to establish thatexists. People don't know about it in our country (the United States). They think it's like: `Burma? Sounds kinda quaint, kinda cute."And I wanted to show that, `No. Here's actual footage, these are people dying ..." And you should have seen what I left out. It was even worse. Much worse. And I know that people couldn't take it.
"Here's the problem with doing a film," he continued. "You want the truth. You want cinema to reflect and dissect reality, but a lot of us aren't equipped to accept it. We live in a society where we've been sheltered a little bit ... That was a hard thing to push."

DMX appeared in a Phoenix court room today (January 30), where he was sentenced to 90 days in prison. The 38-year-old rapper, who is currently in the Maricopa, Arizona jail, appeared before a Maricopa, County judge in black and white pin stripes, looking noticeably heavier. The judge sentenced DMX to three months in prison, after Maricopa County sheriff’s deputies raided his Cave Creek, Arizona home last year on suspicion of animal abuse. Investigators found over a dozen malnourished dogs on the property, as well as the charred remains of several others. Also recovered were guns, ammunition and drug paraphernalia. He was also accused of felony theft, after he gave a fake name and social security numbers to workers treating him at a Scottsdale clinic last April. The rapper must also serve 18 months supervised probation. The sentencing marks the end of almost a full year of warrants, raids and multiple arrests. Since his incarceration, DMX has been reading the bible each day and is planning a religious themed television show to teach children a positive message.

One of our favorite shows is on DVD now in the US. We're selling them at the Bad Apple. Jason King was a spin-off of Department S and the obvious inspiration for that whole Austin Powers thing, or one of them:
