    Blu-ray Review HTF BLU-RAY REVIEW: Robin Hood

    I'm surprised there is no commentary for the movie. Ridley's commentaries are the only ones I listen to. Kinda sucks but I will still get this. I'm one of 10 people who actually liked this movie.

    DVD Review HTF DVD REVIEW: Clint Eastwood: American Icon Collection

    I got this as well even though I have Coogan's Bluff already, which is easily the best in the set. Eiger Sanction is the worst, although still enjoyable in the same sense as Firefox. Beguiled, to me, is the biggest standout in terms of being an oddity in Eastwood's career. I think there is...

    Criterion sets Kurosawa's "Ran" for May 12, 2009...

    Yes. Yes. Yes. Glad I didn't get the 2 disc set.

    Terminator 4

    It doesn't undercut McG? He or an assistant is calling for a minute break to let cooler heads prevail but Bale is refusing and demanding they re-do the scene immediately. Yeah, McG is in REAL control there. The only one I hear screaming is Bale. It's not like everyone else gets to go home...

    I too love Eastwood. Too much perhaps and will grab this without question; sight unseen.

    Terminator 4

    Bale has no right to treat anyone like that. It's obvious that Bale controls that set and McG is worthless as a director. Can't control his actor and leaves his DP hanging. Even if the DP was being stupid and ruining shots Bale can't say that, it's McG's job to say it.

    Blu-ray Review HTF Blu-Ray Review: Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

    Hmmm, no I think my sense of humor is fine thank you. I have watched some, not all, and I don't find it funny. Just like I like Indy IV. If that bothers you, too bad.

    Blu-ray Review HTF Blu-Ray Review: Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

    Well I enjoyed it. So a purchase for me. Also South Park has jumped.....I guess, nuked the fridge as well. They're no longer funny. That joke has died.

    Blu-ray Review HTF BLU-RAY REVIEW: Daredevil - Director's Cut

    So underrated. So much better than most of the comic book films coming from Marvel lately. Better than any Spiderman, Hulk and Iron Man. IMO, this is their best film to date.

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

    I love this movie. Love it. For me, it's far better than Chinatown, and I love that movie too. I guess I like neo-noir film making.

    AKIRA Coming to Blu in FEB 09

    I'm not going to bother with Anime BD. I'm fine with cheap box sets.

    Blu Ray rumors about The Dark Knight release

    I just want the movie. I will watch endlessly for days. Amazing film. I haven't been this blown away by a film since I watched Once Upon a Time in the West, on video, for the first time.

    Dr Stangelove & Taxi Driver Blu-rays coming Dec & Feb

    I just don't get Taxi Driver. Is it good? Maybe but the narrative is so, jumpy, for me. De Niro is bored so he dates a woman, turns her off, so he follows her around while trying to save a young prostitute, but then decides he wants to be a sociopath instead. Huh? Hmmm, I like Scorsese more than...

    I love the fridge scene. I respect my home appliances more so now.
