    Doctor Who: Series 1-7 Limited Edition Blu-ray Giftset Available for Preorder

    Amazon has this listed as "unavailable". Usually when they are out of stock they'll list a delay. This sounds more like a cancellation.

    Doctor Who: Series 1-7 Limited Edition Blu-ray Giftset Available for Preorder

    Interesting. When I talked to the team in charge of mastering the classic episodes for dvd at a con, they were confident that seasons 1-4 would NEVER be available on blu-ray. Not only were these standard definition, but the 24 frame format degraded it even further. The res on these was below...

    Star Trek: The Next Generation Season Two Blu-ray Review

    Has anyone seen this on shelves yet? Amazon says 9 to 12 days, Best Buy says unavailable and target (which stocked season 1 heavily) has no space for it. A last minute delay?

    Blu-ray Review Jaws Blu-ray Review - Very Highly Recommended

    I saw the slipcased version in both Target and Wal-Mart and it felt like it was in a dvd case. Are there two different cases, like Louie? Or is it a blu-ray case inside the slipcover?

    Men in Black 3 - quick review

    I really enjoyed it, much more than I thought I would. The first film is one of my favorite movies ever, easily in my top 5. The second is just disappointing, a Ghostbusters 2 type misfire. This gets the franchise back on track. This feels like Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade; not the classic...

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ The Lord of the Rings Trilogy - Extended Edition -- in Blu-ray

    Finally watching FOTR. Green yes. Bad no. And the level of detail blows the theatrical away.

    Report: Blu-ray Sales Falling Short Of Expectations Even As Prices Decline. Are you still buying?

    I'm converting most my dvd collection to blu-ray soit'smostly catalog. Selling the dvds at second hand shops to make up some of the money. I'm finding that a few titles can simply exit my collection.

    Best Buy Q1 Profits Fall 12% -- Do you still shop at BBY?

    I'm also finding unless it's a big release you won't see a title there for a month or so.

    It's A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World - 7/5 (Another Wal-Mart Exclusive)

    Wal-Mart is all about volume. And these $10.00 exclusives should do very well for them. I know I want 4 out of those initial 5. My only worry is that they sometimes under order their own exclusives and not ship them to every store. Anyone who has dealt with their action figure exclusives...

    New Home Theater Setup (Denon AVR-590) questions

    I have a question about this receiver. I bought this six months ago and have been using it every day with no issues. All the components are running into it through hdmi. Last night there was an electrical storm and after one big crash the home entertainment unit went out. The surge...

    Then why could Spielberg direct the Indiana Jones movies?
