    The Chronicles of Riddick vs Pitch Black

    Are these different versions of the same movie or are they two completely different movies? Pardon me if this is a very stupid question.

    having trouble getting through a few classics

    I recently rented Rear Window and Vertigo mainly because they are two of Hitchcock's most highly regarded films. I could barely stay interested in either one. I know that they are classics and I know that they are considered two of the greatest films ever made, but they did very little for me.

    Nikon D100 or D1x?

    Thanks guys, I just read an article on the D70 vs D100 vs D1x, and I was blown away by the feature set of the D70. It looks like it has all of the features and quality that I would be looking for and at a very attractive price.

    Nikon D100 or D1x?

    I am going to be in the market for a digital slr soon and I was wondering why one would choose a D1x over a D100 when the D100 has more resolution (6.1 vs 5.1 megapixels)? I will be using it primarily for wedding photography.

    DVD Review HTF REVIEW: The Butterfly Effect

    When you select "Theatrical Edition" you are prompted to flip the disk. Unfortunately there is no flip side.

    DVD Review HTF REVIEW: The Butterfly Effect

    There is no flip side. There is the data side and on the other side is the title of the film printed on the disk.

    DVD Review HTF REVIEW: The Butterfly Effect

    I rented this from Netflix and it did not come as a flipper, just one sided with the DC version on it. I can't believe that I don't get to see both versions when renting this from Netflix!:angry:

    Sling Blade, is it 5.1 or 2.0?

    I was looking at IMDB for Sling Blade and it lists the region 1 as DD 5.1. Netflix also lists it the same way, but all I get from my AV receiver is DPLII. Are the listings wrong or is it poorly flagged or what?

    Please Help!

    Get Ad-Aware and run it. The standard version is free. Also get Spybot and run it too. What Ad-Aware misses (and it don't miss much) Spybot will get. BTW, Spybot is free also. PS It is usually better to give a little more info in your thread subject line than just "please help".
