^^I was gonna ask if you'd had your dashcam installed, but I thought it was a bit rude to ask... But wow.

It felt more dramatic than it looked. Good proof for insurance though.

Wow, that was some scary footage... And there was absolutely nothing you could do to avoid what happened.
But I wish you a speedy recovery though and hope the insurance company doesn't drag their feet in getting you back on the road with a new van, so you can get back to work when you recover.

Doesn't surprise me considering they bought fox who were kings of this crap. At least Disney don't do it on their new releases, only on catalog titles so far. still doesn't give me much of an incentive to upgrade and is why I never bought captain America in 4k

Sorry to hear this mate. Thankfully you came out of it mostly alright. I hope you have a speedy recovery. Life can throw you curve balls sometimes. My brothers wife recently passed away, she was only 37 years old (far too young). When you see people go through situation like yours, and what my brother is going through, it really makes realise that you need to appreciate what you've got, and make the most of each day, because life really is short.

I could just get some trays and add my BD discs to the 4K cases. I would be unlikely to watch them after getting the 4K discs anyway. But Iím really trying to stop myself re-buying anything. Captain America, X-men, and Toy Story are calling me, but iím not answering..... at least until JB do a 50% off sale, then Iíll think about it. But for now there are enough movies that I donít already own to spend my money on.

4K cases also take up twice the shelf space as the slim 7mm BD cases I use. Does anybody have a reasonably priced source of slim 4K cases? Ideally Iíd like 2 disc cases around 10-11mm. I could just use the same 7mm cases for 4K discs, but iíd Prefer to have room for the second disc, and like to be able to differentiate the black 4K cases. All I can find are 12.5mm cases which are much more expensive than the 7mm blue ones, so the ROI in terms of shelf space saved per dollar spent isnít there.

For US 'cinema' both studio and independent filmmaking, is largely redundant with a few exceptions, like Tarantino, Anderson - both PT & Wes and probably a couple more, or a franchise film like Toy Story 4 that a lot of love and care was taken whilst making it. But pretty much everything else I am loathed to sit through.

However, from other countries we have an interesting two months of films opening in Australia: Parasite (South Korea), The Nightingale (Australia), The Third Wife (Vietnam), The White Crow (UK), Dogman (Italy)....

This year isn't much different from last year, or the year before, or the year before that going back over a decade now.

Heres some of the top grossing films released around the same time period last year: Deadpool 2, Ocean's 8, Jurassic World 2, Mamma Mia 2, Sicario 2, Ant-man & The Wasp, Incredibles 2 (and a month later) Mission Impossible 6 and Equalizer 2.

And heres some of the big summer films from 10 years ago: U.S summer 2009: Transformers 2, Star Trek reboot, X-Men: Wolverine, Terminator Salvation, Angels & Demons, Harry potter Half Blood Prince, Night at Museum 2.

Even with some of the current sequels /reboots falling well below expectations in quality and box office I wouldn't expect Hollywood to give up on on these types of films anytime soon. Sequels and reboots are "brand" names and brand names of previously successful films gathers instant interest for those who went to see the original film and liked it enough to make it successful in the first place. So I get why we see so many of them: its Hollywood hedging its bets.

And hey sometimes those sequels end up being really good: I'm looking at you John Wick 3 (and also Avengers Endgame a few months back)

Insurance payout for my van came through last night. Was insured for 18k, but I only got just over 16k once the excess was removed, and the premiums (only had insurance for three months).

Found an identical van in Auckland, it's 1k more than what I paid for the first, but it's the best I could find within my time frame needed. Just on the phone with the bank to ask about making a fast payment so my boss can pick it up for me today. This time i'll slightly over-insure it like everyone said I should have done lol

Mate, glad you are ok. I watched your video 2-3 times initially wondering why your car swerved for no reason, or like someone said it was the "invisible cyclist", because I was doing skim reading and didn't notice you already mentioned it was likely due to diesel on the road.

Big thumb up to the make and model of your van too for "protecting" its occupant in such a high speed crash.
