    The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo

    Couple more follow up questions: What camera do you shoot with for your interviews and b-roll and do you just record sound directly to camera with a mounted mic? Thanks a lot!

    Any chance that this will get a Criterion release much like Benjamin Button?

    If reports that Paramount isn't relasing any catalog titles on Blu-ray are true, are they licensing

    This is really annoying I wish Paramount would release some titles. They brought out three of the Friday the 13th movies and then stopped and just re-issued them on DVD, I'd really like to get the rest of them but I'm not buying them again on DVD

    How good are DLPs??

    I've had a Toshiba 56' 1080i DLP for about 5 years now and a 37' Sharp 1080p LCD for 3 years. I've always found that the DLP gives the "truest" image and reflects exactly what I'd want from a blu-ray, that being a very film-like image that's faithful to the movie.

    Terminator 1 & 2

    Van, I can't wait for this disc and the thought of a new Terminator BD with a Lowry restoration is getting me very excited. I can't wait to see what you've got in store for that film. I find a lot of people don't give enough credit to fact tracks, one of the coolest things I ever experienced...

    Blade Runner 5 Disc: Thank you again!

    Every time I watch Dangerous Days and come to the iconic end shot with Deckard on his balcony with that beautiful Vangelis score I always get so emotional and a smile crosses my face. Finally Blade Runner received exceptional treatment on Home Video and it's finally got the recognition it truly...

    ZODIAC 2-Disc problems

    The extras were produced by David Prior and I remember another feature of his, possible the making of The Fly, using a similar technique. It definately is an editing choice he uses often.

    The new enemy of the HD Formats is Noise Reduction!

    Whoops! I wish I had a screen that size but I don't think I could fit that anywhere. It's 56", of course. :laugh:

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

    That's what i first thought until I watched it myself. It is quite clear that this isn't due to the new 5.1 track, the different music and "Kowalski" line are no where to be heard on the 2.0 track.
