Living Room / Re: TOR Vidalia - newest update has no control panel
« on: September 23, 2015, 07:50 PM »
I installed the newest TOR Vidalia, but it is unable to connect.
Since switching to free AVG, I don't know if it is excluding TOR or how to make it allow it, but when I disabled AVG for a moment, TOR still could not connect.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

edit: I added TOR connect and TOR.exe to my Firewall permissions, and still no success connecting.

Screen rez question for anyone please...
This show was user-edited (i.e. 'hard wired') to give quarter-screen playback.
It's built-in. How would I get it to show just the video in full-screen?

@MilesAhead I don't know any of those websites you name, so I'm unfamiliar with them.
That would be a cool idea, any kind of an Asian films thread.
The way I often find good Asian films is to start with a good film I already know, and see what other films were done by the same Producer or with any of the same actors.
Or sometimes a film by a western company may be cloned by an asian one, or vice-versa, which often works out quite well.
Or I'll see a review linking to a trailer and then check it out with rotten tomatoes or asian wiki. :)

Cellular 2004 which was given a remake into the Hong Kong film Connected 2008.
Both are energizers with nonstop action that never gets tiresome.

I haven't seen this film.  So I have no idea if this review is on the mark.  But generally this site is a good resource for Hong Kong movie reviews.  I have read it for many years.  It also has bios with pics of many HK and Chinese actors to complement sites like AsianWiki and d-addicts.

Edit:  Also if you hate Wong Jing films is the site for you.  :)

Ratings do matter, but I really enjoyed Connected and thought it was an xlnt film, and if I may say so, I think ^reviewer Kozo's long-winded rating fits himself more than the film. :)
Or, let's be fair, Kozo describes it as "perfunctory, and the acting is overdone with a capital "O", but the whole thing manages to work in spite of its own rampant stupidity. 'Connected' isn't quality, but it's fun."
Sorry to disagree, but the 'Connected' I saw was delightful, exciting, well-acted, brilliant, as I put it in an earlier ^post, an 'energizer' with 'non-stop action'.
Kozo comes across to me more like an amateur headhunter Performing Arts critic.
I get the feeling Kozo wants me to attribute to himself, the excellence of qualities he claims are so sadly lacking in 'Connected', b/c I've seen 'Connected', with good English subtitles, and I liked it no end.
