    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Spartacus -- in Blu-ray

    What a let down. I was hoping for the beauty of the Criterion SD DVD but only in 1080p. Instead we get yet another "oh we must need to filter the film grain and make everything shiney and plasticey for the dolts who don't know better" Wal-Mart crowd. I fear for how the inevitable Back To The...

    New Kubrick SE's

    I suspect we'll see "Barry Lyndon" given an SE treatment within the next year. I'd rather wait a little bit and have it done RIGHT than to have Warner rush it. Yeah I'd love to have "Barry Lyndon" on HD-DVD right now but honestly the 2001 SD-DVD remaster is still very watchable for the time being.

    Paramount recalls and re-releases 'The Jack Ryan' collection

    Maybe Paramount with throw in an extra disc for each Jack Ryan film with the extras then repress the first disc with any audio commentaries added. Wishful thinking but we'll have to wait and see.

    New Kubrick SE's

    Has anybody received their orders from WHV Sale?

    Just got off the phone with "Tammy" from Warner's 800 number. She told me that according to her "senior supervisor" that they are expecting to have the issue fixed "by the end of this week" which means they better hurry up (since its Thursday now). She also told me that since they have "a large...

    Has anybody received their orders from WHV Sale?

    I got told the same thing over the phone on Friday about the computer issues. This is absolutely frustrating as I was hoping to have watched most of "Smallville" Season 6 by now. Instead its sitting on THEIR end while I continue to wait and wait. Warner as much as I love their products they...

    Barry Lyndon

    That's right... I keep forgetting they technically were letterbox transfers since the last time I watched "Barry Lyndon" was several years ago on my now long gone 27 inch Sony VVega.

    Barry Lyndon

    http://www.amazon.com/Barry-Lyndon-R...0489088&sr=1-2 Amazon is saying Widescreen. Hopefully if this is true then an HD-DVD release is not too far behind. :D Also Lolita shows for an 10/23 SD-DVD release in WS according to Amazon.com: http://www.amazon.com/Lolita-James-M...0489088&sr=1-3

    "The Jason Bourne Collection" set (HD DVD)

    You know I just HAD a feeling something like this was going to happen. Glad I held off on buying them on HD until this set comes. Hopefully there will be a good sale on it somewhere the week it comes out too. Thanks Jari K for the info. :D
