    Question about installing an OS

    Yeah I've heard about VirtualBox. The computer in question is too old and with too little memory to be able to handle that. I think I'm just going to use DBAN, then try to install Ubuntu. It's an old PC that I'm not too worried about, so if it screws up it's no big loss. I appreciate all the...

    Question about installing an OS

    If I install Ubuntu on the hard drive as it is right now (majorly screwed up), everything will run okay? The installation will wipe out the virus, or malware (whatever the case may be)? I am unable to get the computer to even recognize a disc in the cd-rom drive. Whatever drive has a cd or...

    Question about installing an OS

    Thanks SethH. My plan now is to use DBAN to erase the drive since I can't format it, then install Ubuntu on the fresh clean hard drive. Would that be the easiest way?

    Question about installing an OS

    So I have an old PC (Dell Dimension 4400, about 5 or 6 years old) that I believe is virus-infected. I'm not positive it's a virus but I'm pretty sure. The computer doesn't work right at all. It's very very slow. The antivirus software malfuctioned for some reason and it's old and bogged down...

    *** Official "INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS" Review Thread

    Four out of four stars. I'm going to try to do this without hyperbole. I'm a huge QT fan and love everything he's ever directed (or written). I love Inglourious Basterds. A lot. I love Tarantino's directing probably more than anything, although certainly his choice of actors, his dialog, music...

    Catalogue lovers: best eye candy cinematography?

    Delicatessen or any Jean-Pierre Jeunet film.

    *** Official HELLBOY 2: The Golden Army Review Thread

    Loved it. The best assortment of creatures and monsters in any movie since Lord of the Rings. I can't wait to see what Del Toro does with The Hobbit. It will be awesome. The Troll Market scene certainly rivals the Mos Eisley cantina scene from Star Wars.

    I'm feeling masochistic: Which Uwe Boll film should I watch?

    DVD Review HTF DVD REVIEW: The Song Remains the Same: Two-Disc Special Edition

    This release seems to be out of print after only being available for less than 2 months? Does anyone know what the deal is here??

    The official BLADE RUNNER SE thread. (Check out page 8 and #790.)

    Everybody's raving about the 5-disc set. I bought the 4-disc set. Is the 5 disc really that much better? It's basically just the packaging and the addition of the workprint version isn't it? I personally didn't see that justifying an additional $20.

    *** Official HALLOWEEN (2007) Discussion Thread

    I didn't find her annoying. Annie and Linda on the other hand, did annoy me quite at bit at first, but grew on me. I really grew to like Laurie as the film progressed.

    *** Official HALLOWEEN (2007) Discussion Thread

    Yes, I felt she brought a charming innocence to the character and really seemed like a fun-loving teenager as opposed to Jamie Lee Curtis' introverted nerd. Scout just seemed more like a teen girl than Jamie Lee. I know Jamie Lee was only 19 or 20 when the film was made, but she looked like she...

    *** Official HALLOWEEN (2007) Review Thread

    I just now saw this so I thought I'd contribute. :star::star:1/2 out of four. I seem to feel the opposite of the general consensus. I mostly hated the first half of Halloween, but really dug the second half. The little blond kid just did not work for me at all. I liked the idea of...

    DVD Review HTF DVD Review: Ratatouille

    I agree. I watched Ratatouille on a 16:9 monitor in 480p and it looks beyond amazing. I can't even imagine what 1080p would look like.
