    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...

    USHE Press Release: Funny People (DVD)

    Oh I have already seen Funny People. It is a bit different, but not a complete deviation from the previous movies. It moves a bit more in the dramatic direction, but Knocked Up also had a bit of that too. Looking forward to owning this. I love the Line-O-Rama on Apatow movies in particular.

    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?

    USHE Press Release: Funny People (DVD)

    Wow. Two hours and 33 minutes. Apatow's comedies are getting more and more epic. His next movie will probably be three hours. I will be picking this up. I love Apatow's directorial efforts and the extras are always great.

    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.

    Anchor Bay Press Release: The Hardbodies Collection

    Yes!! If this can be had for less than ten bucks, I'd consider it a must buy. Now if only I could get the two Bikini Carwash movies and the entire Shannon Whirry collection.

    *** 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.

    WHV Press Release: Twister 2-Disc SE (DVD/HD-DVD/Blu-ray)

    I haven't seen this movie in ages. This was the movie that introduced me to Phillip Seymour Hoffman, now my single favorite actor.

    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.
