    Just What Kind Of Movie is House of Wax?

    Maybe the confusion stems from the fact that Paris Hilton is used as the model fro the poster art.

    Wow HoneyMooners and I Thought it Could'nt Get Much Worse

    You can't remake The Honeymooners. It's value system belongs to a different age. It's like remaking I Love Lucy or Leave it to Beaver. And, as for retaining the 'spirit' of the original piece, well, Gabrielle Union ain't no Alice Kramdem, unless Alice somehow got major reconstructive surgery and...

    "Fox Reuniting Itself with 'Family Guy'"

    Over and over and over again, it seems. We get it; you don't like Family Guy. Now, can you leave the rest of us in peace to enjoy discussing the show.

    Alexander limited 3-disc, R3, DTS

    Given that the R1 DVD will be a "Director's Cut" (with Alexander's bi-sexuality toned down, if not eliminated), this may be the only way to see the theatrical cut. It also has a DTS track, which the R1 will not have (as it's a Warners release).

    Will Ferrell to star in "Land of the Lost" film

    The Fugitive I'll give you, but the other two were pretty ordinary (and Mission: Impossible had an only passing association with the TV series). Land of the Lost, however, is fodder for camp. And Hollywood isn't nearly as clever as it used to be when it comes to comedy.

    Ryan Seacrest gets star on hollywood walk of fame

    Well, Mary Kate and Ashley have one, so why can't Ryan? We'll be seeing Omarosa getting hers next year, in all likelihood. The Walk of Fame is just real estate for sale to whoever is willing to fork out 15 grand and who has managed to keep working in the industry for 5 years.

    "Fox Reuniting Itself with 'Family Guy'"

    If they loved it so much, then why did they cancel it? And speaking someone who is as far from a frat-boy as you could possibly imagine, I thoroughly enjoy the show. Sure, it's not as good as King of the Hill or Futurama, but at least it isn't another reality show.

    DVD Review HTF REVIEW: Ocean's Twelve

    Those extras don't look so hot. Probably EPK crap and one of those god-awful HBO making of featurettes. Frankly, the film was so acted and directed with such obvious disinterest (and with nothing more than a paycheck in mind for many, no doubt) that I can't imagine Soderbergh would be into an SE...

    Gallipoli: 2-Disc Anniversary Edition (Australia R4)

    Another great Australian film of the '70's, 'Don's Party', has just been released in a good anamorphic transfer with a 100 minute making of documentary and 1 hr interview with David Williamson. Australia certainly doesn't make films like this anymore, more's the pity (although Lantana came close...

    Not for Resale Rental Only?

    Warners have been doing this for years in the UK.

    Basic question regarding region codes on DVDs.

    The DVD is available for sale at Amazon. It is listed as "All Regions" and as many of the comments are from US reviwers, I'd say it was an NTSC DVD. Amazon link

    Basic question regarding region codes on DVDs.

    Well, a lot of legit R2 and R4 DVDs state whether they are DVD5 (single layer) or DVD9 (dual layer) on their box. All Fox DVDs state this, at least.

    Super Volcano...Anybody planning to...

    Isn't this produced by the BBC and follows the same sort of factoid structure used in the Walking With... series? At least that's better than those cheesy A&E docos.

    My Brilliant Career (R1) on May 31, 2005

    Looks the same as the Australian release, except for the inclusion of (frankly useless) DTS and DD ES/EX tracks.

    ***Gay-Friendly DVD's, Version 5***

    Another one to avoid: Testosterone. Starts out OK, but ends up the most idiotic mess of a movie. Still, it does have Jennifer Coolidge's only performance as a normal human being.
