    Talk me out of buying an Oppo BDP-93

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Smokey and the Bandit -- in Blu-ray

    I have a fond memory of my parents taking us kids to the (now closed) drive-in in Minot, ND. It was a double feature. Grease, followed by Hooper. Those were the days.

    Looking to replace a 65" CRT

    If you were looking to replace your Toshiba with something of similar size, plasma is probably your best option. If you have a light-controlled theater room, you owe it to yourself to demo projector technology. Digital projectors, LCD, LCoS, and DLP have all come a long way in the past few...

    Pioneer CLD-M90

    Once you open it, you'll want to leave it off! Kind of like being able to see a record change in an old jukebox. It makes for a great conversation starter.

    Pioneer CLD-M90

    I've had an M-401 since '94. My first one made it through 1 side of the first movie. My second is still going 17 years later. If you get the chance, remove the top. It works nothing like a carrousel. A square turns and slides on a track, spins and moves out to the cd, picks it up and drops it in...

    Which is the better Laserdisc Player - Pioneer LD-707 or the Pioneer CLD-S201?

    Many people like the 201 because 1. It is newer and not likely to have dried or worn out parts. and 2. It was an entry-level player, and many like that because it had no "digital processing" or other "enhancements" that may have been "state-of-the-art" in the mid '90s, but are drawbacks today...

    Any database of Netflix "rental" versions?

    I'm not big on most DVD and Blu Ray extras. In fact, I can't remember when I watched the second disc in a multi-disc release. However, I've always loved director commentaries, and I think WB's "Maximum Movie Mode" is a pretty cool use of Blu Ray. More and more, I'm receiving bare bones...

    Futurama returning?!?!

    I would tune in, curl up with a box of kleenex, and just have a good long cry :) Seriously...as a fan with every DVD and listened to every commentary, there is no chance this will fly. i still hope and think, it's just one long negotiation.

    The 90 minute rule.

    And I'm sure if Bob Evans and Coppolla were to present their case, they would have gotten my seal of approval!

    The 90 minute rule.

    I think people are taking this too seriously. It was just a tounge-in-cheek comment. Of course movies should be long enough to tell their story. I just think some are needlessly long. That's all.

    Lethal Weapon 5 !

    I remember I was visiting a friend who was a student at Full Sail recording studios in Orlando around '91. We watched them blow up a building for Lethal Weapon 3. Seems like yesterday!

    The 90 minute rule.
