On dvd... not if you just want to walk into a store in pick it up.  But after you get settled in, you'll have your normal places to go.  And once the local dvd place knows you're a good repeat customer, you can make request and he'll have his supplier download and burn just about any dvd that you want.

Everything is available in China and I mean everything. You just need to know where to look for some things.

Or you can download Funshion, and you can download a bunch of movies for free. I know they have old movies, because I found It's a Wonderful Life on there.

There are many online sites in China where one can both watch and download old movies from the West.  Use "baidu" to do a search and you will find them.

Have you ever gone out to a DVD store at all? They sell all types of movies from old to new. If you ever have the chance go to a dvd store. The dvd street guys won't have older movies they get all the new one's. Your gonna have to find a dvd store to get an older movie.

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
