    TIME TUNNEL! - Where Are You?

    I'm pleased that Time Tunnel is finally coming to DVD. My only regret is the Volume 1 decision. It's not unusual though for Fox to do this (they seem to be the only one doing it). They just release news of Alien Nation Season 1 and I don't recall any other Volume 1 sets to come our way, just DVD...

    Titanic SE See Post #541 for Update

    I wish they would have given a branching option for the deleted scenes like Cameron did for The Abyss. That way, everyone wins - people who like it as his and others who would like to see the whole Titanic as shot, regardless of pacing. I would imagine that branching is a additional expense -...

    Titanic SE See Post #541 for Update

    You got to keep this is perspective dealing with Paramount: 1. Never has been high on providing trailers. Always says that they didn't acquire the DVD rights for them. Even on new films? Come on!!! 2. Never has been one to acquire additional material that didn't belong to them. Even...

    USHV Press Release: The Legacy Series (The Sting/To Kill A Mockingbird/Deer Hunter

    I'm surprised that The Deer Hunter, that won Best Sound Oscar, is only getting Dolby Stereo while all the others are getting Dolby 5.1/DTS 5.1. Any reason? I hope this is a sign that Universal has awakened from it's long sleep and seen the value in their invaluable library of films. With...

    Somewhere in Time Re-re-release? (MERGED THREAD)

    There's 6 sales here. My mom and sisters all LOVE this film and have been waiting for a 16x9 treatment with added special features (like the yearly review at Grand Hotel). I only hope they were adventurous enough to get some commentary from Christopher Reeve. Why do studios not forsee this...

    THATS ENTERTAINMENT trilogy - anyone?

    I have the That's Entertainment Collection on laserdisc. Does anyone know what is not included from that collection on the That's Entertainment Trilogy DVD?

    DVD Review HTF REVIEW: Footloose - Special Collector's Edition

    Ron: When you said that you were told that the original print was not in good shape ... do you mean the original negative or the first print made from the negative. If the latter, why don't studios go to the negative in cases like this?

    Have we become spoiled by DVD?

    And just think - HD-DVD is just around the corner. We will be saying in 5 years - have we becomed spoiled by HD-DVD? And be comparing DVD with HD-DVD?

    The Day After Tomorrow - Due 10/5

    I'm also a little surprised with the content of this release from Fox. Given Fox's track record with Independence Day and Artisan's Stargate, you would expect a little more (at least a 2-disc edition with DTS - or hopefully an announcement for a future release). And what about the Web-link to...

    What's with Universal's back catalog?

    Being an avid LD collector - I am patiently waiting Universals DVD back catalog release (they have had to of made SOME films not involving Spielberg - which seems to be the majority of their releases). But in all fairness to Universal - just because they have a huge back catalog library -...

    Merged thread for "Band of Brothers"

    Received mine yesterday. Audio and Video outstanding - A+. Packaging: B+. Need to allow digipack to be removed from tin. Don't know if disk organization was as intended - but digging down to bottom to get at first disk was a pain. I eventually removed each disc and reordered them...

    trailers on Paramount releases

    In defense of Paramount, you have to look at the history of the studio (especially when it comes to supplements on DVDs). Back it the old days, it was not uncommon for studios to toss supplemental feature film content after the theatrical run. It was deemed not worth the storage - and was...

    Disney is going to lose tons of money because of this (i.e: Honey, I Shrunk The Kids)

    I'm afraid that for the time being, it is going to be very selective in purchasing Disney DVDs. With all the financial problems that Disney is having (theme parks, movies, stores, ...), I'm afraid that they are cutting corners on features and transfers. Based on the last Disney chat, the...
