Q: Anyone know a good store in Shenzhen to buy "real" DVD's?

Something with a good selection of English movies with Chinese subtitles.
I have only found a few with crappy selections.
Even a store with a good selection of fakes will do fine.

I have never seen any place in China selling real DVD's.  I had thought that I had bought some in a walmart once, but they turned out to be even worse copies than the ones I can buy for 5RMB on the street corner.

There is a very limiting censor law in China that limits the number of western movies that can be released for show in the theater and for sale in the DVD shops. You will not find any more then 10 or 15 titles at any one given time in any of the shops that sell reral DVD's.
I am guessing this is the biggest reason that the illegal ones are so much in demand.  Mix city has a small shop on the main floor, that would be the Starbicks floor that has some good ones but again very limited.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
