    A warning about The Descent - Blue Ray

    I finally got the disc, and it played perfectly on my updated Samsung. Not only that, but this is my first BD with the "wow" factor I've enjoyed with the best HD-DVDs.

    There's a Samsung firmware update dated 12-17 that might help. http://www.samsung.com/support/produ...e=FM&language=

    Speed - Defective?

    Well, damnit, I just sent my second disc back to Amazon. Now do I order yet another one from them so I can forward it to Fox for a replacement?

    Dune HD-DVD reviews?

    I watched it last night. It's excellent. I found myself watching the detail in the amazing indoor sets and costumes with astonishment - and in the fx scenes, contemplating how much effects have improved in the last 20 years or so.

    Speed - Defective?

    I think it's a single layer disc.

    Speed - Defective?

    I got Speed to play until about 1:10...when it broke up, badly.

    Speed - Defective?

    Okay. I downloaded the firmware yet again and installed it. Then I set the "parental control" function - it defaults for level 1 - to 8 and Speed is playing for me now.

    Speed - Defective?

    I'm on my second Amazon/Speed disc; both behave identically, self ejection after a few dozen seconds. Very disappointing.

    1900 New Release talk

    A few years ago there was an incident in Texas where a local Sheriff went to the local video store, located the names and addresses of people who had rented - and possessed - The Tin Drum. He then sent out the troops to raid the people's homes and confiscate the porn.

    Warner announces Forbidden Planet for November

    One thing that's impossible to recreate, even with super-duper equipment and software, is the experience of seeing a great film for the first time - I remember how much the invisible tiger scared me when I saw this as a little kid.

    Chiefs = TV Mini Series

    You can play it if you purchase a dvd player that will convert PAL to NTSC, the US television system. Region "0" means it will play anywhere, but a player that will convert will also play discs from any region if you set it up that way. http://www.hkflix.com/hardware/ I've found to be reliable.

    Universal releasing Non-OAR dvds including "The Forbin Project, "Charley Varrick"

    It woule probably be more effective to write the appropriate executive within Universal, or better still his boss. Does anyone know who we can write to?
