    BMWFilms - New movies to be posted in October

    I've pretty much hated every John Woo movie I've ever seen, but I thought this short was very entertaining. If you stretched it to 100 minutes, I'd probably feel different. I tried to get rid of the quicktime "skin" using a program called Full Screen Mov viewer. It worked on the last batch...

    Best place to purchase DVD player? RP-82, CP-72, or 4800

    As of 9/15, Amazon.com has the 4800 for $175.04 shipped. You can also get $10 off with the code MAPBABYTALK2. I'm thinking pretty hard about getting in on this deal myself.

    HUGE DVD SALE at overstock.com!!!

    Was going to hold off on this deal, but Criterion Spartacus pushed me over the edge (can't get it through Columbia House). Also picked up Chicken Run, Repo Man, Cast Away and Unbreakable for a little over $10 apiece.
