    Unreleased Christmas specials on DVD?

    Yes!!! This one is at the top of my list, also. I have it on a very old VHS retail tape "Nelvanamation Four Cosmic Fantasies in One", but it's degraded so badly that I cannot get it to play for a transfer to DVD recorder. :frowning: (The tape also includes "The Devil and Daniel Mouse", "Rome-O...

    Opus n' Bill in A Wish for Wings that Work

    Yeah!! I found one at Suncoast in the mall last night. Only $14.99. (I didn't find it at my local Best Buy, Circuit City, Target, Wal-Mart nor Sams Club, and was about to mail order it.) The DVD is about as bare-bones as you can get, with "Play" and "Subtitles" (in English) being the only...

    Black Friday Shopping: What'd you do today?

    Slept in a bit (I'm getting too old for 5am door buster shopping) and started out at Wal-Mart. A few of the items on our list were sold-out, but I got super-lucky and found them all when I looked through some shopping carts of merchandise being sent back to the from the front lanes for...

    Weekly RoundUp: Black Friday Info (merged)

    Target was VERY lame!! Most of the advertised $3.98 titles were only available in full (fool) screen, not OAR Widescreen (there were a few OAR titles, like Spiderman 2, but not many). I asked the clerk about it, and he said that was all they had received for the sale. It felt very...

    Star Wars discussion from The Bits...

    I'm reading lots of opinions here on why this new release should or shouldn't be bought. Instead of trying to agree or disagree with 80+ pages of posts, I'll just sum up my opinions based on what I've read so far. 1. "Transfer from 1993 Laserdiscs": Not perfect, but acceptable. They probably...

    Justice League & Batman Beyond

    I agree. To clarify, my nit-pick is the use of the word 'adventures' instead of 'episodes' in the box text. The buyer is really getting 12 adventures (read "stories") that are presented in 26 episodes. But, like I said, it's just a nit-pick.

    Justice League & Batman Beyond

    A nice review, but there is a packaging error on the "Justice League Season 1" set that World's Finest Online didn't catch. There are no English subtitles, as the packaging and review both state, only French and Spanish. Another nit-pick I have with the packaging the JL S1 set is the...

    OAR is again in danger for HiDef

    The OAR always works in my home, no matter what the ratio. Heck, I remember watching my Criterion "Blade Runner" laserdisc at a friends house on her 13" TV. We had to sit close to the screen, but it looked sooooo good compared to the seriously cropped VHS alternative.

    How many times have you "dipped" on the same titles?

    "The Nightmare Before Christmas": VHS (Di$ney delayed the LD release a year), CLV LD, CAV LD Box Set, DVD and DVD SE. I'm looking forward to the day I'll get to 6th-dip this one when Di$ney finally releases a corrected 16:9 anamorphic edition with ALL of the extras that were included in the...

    Journey: Live in Houston, The Escape Tour 1981 DVD

    How is it listed on BestBuy.com? All I could find was the "Journey: Live 2001" release.

    Journey: Live in Houston, The Escape Tour 1981 DVD

    My area Wal-Mart didn't have a listing for it in their system, but I found it at Best Buy for $17.99. Watch a bit and what really liked what I saw. I haven't decided yet if the PCM or 5.1 mix is better. I can say that I don't care for the overlapping disc packaging. (Both discs are snapped...

    LOTS of Rush DVD's coming soon...

    Correct. I was answering Mark B's question about the "Rush In Rio" DVD. I just edited that post to make it more clear. The new "R30" is fantastic and nothing like the "Rush In Rio" release. The wife commented that "R30" looks like they they went out of their way to not make the same mistakes...

    Queen+ Paul Rodgers announce 2006 USA tour

    Grrrrr... Not a single venue in the Midwest! :angry: This should be promoted as the "East and West Coasts (and Great Lakes) Tour", not the "North American Tour". The Cotton Bowl in Dallas, TX is usually an obvious venue for these types of really big shows. I guess they couldn't afford the...

    LOTS of Rush DVD's coming soon...

    I don't have them it in front of me, but I believe COUNTDOWN, VITAL SIGNS and THE BODY ELECTRIC were all included on "Through The Camera Eye", but missing from "Chronicles".

    LOTS of Rush DVD's coming soon...

    R30 is infinitely better than the Rush: In Rio disaster. HIGHTLY recommended:emoji_thumbsup: Still no word on DVD release of "Through The Camera Eye". There were some good videos on that collection that didn't make it into the "Chronicles" collection. It would be nice if they included the...
