    A Few Words About A few words about...™ WarGames -- in Blu-ray

    I noticed the same thing in the Lord of the Rings Extended Edition set on Blu-ray. I had read in some reviews of the set that while the Fellowship of the Ring definitely had the colors changed, that the color timing appeared untouched in the second two films. Well, I've seen all 3 and the...

    SVS packaging

    Our PB2-Plus was delivered on a big truck by a carrier that handles large items, I guess. I think they are called Ohio-Penn Shipping or Cargo, or something like that. Very professional and the box was perfect when it arrived. I wish all companies delivered things that way. But as was said, with...

    Blu-ray Review HTF BLU-RAY REVIEW: Ronin

    Apparently the film was shot in a style that would give it that classic cold war film look, which it does and is quite pleasing, so some of what's being seen is as the film should appear (somewhat desaturated, etc.). The problem is they stuck the movie on a single-layer disk, which was a...

    HTF BLU-RAY REVIEW: King of Kings

    A great film with a superb transfer! The picture quality is incredible, such excellent clarity and detail in the image, this powerful event is even more present and tangible with such an image, just wonderful. You've got to love 70mm film, I was wish all great movies were shot on it. One of...

    The official WORST STUDIO COVER ART thread. Post your worst covers!

    Hmm, I think you might be right, his face doen't seem to match his head. Now that I look closer, it appears like they attached his face to a different version of his head, kind of glued it on. haha :) It's hard to believe just how bad this is...

    The official WORST STUDIO COVER ART thread. Post your worst covers!

    My number 1 vote goes for this cover. Kind of hard to imagine one worse than this, just awful. :) Val Kilmer looks like some kind of disfigured wax dummy. haha :) How little talent and how much poor taste must one possess to make a home video cover like this for a movie? And this guy gets...

    Sony WEGA television question.

    Dave Connoy: It's ok, sorry I missed you post back then. haha :) Well, after nearly ten years of almost constant use (probably 12+ hours a day, on average), the Wega's picture finally started to deteriorate (bleeding colors, various artifacts and such), but we had a lot of great use out of...

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

    Thanks for the link to the updated review. Very interesting how they note in their careful checking of the color in the film that even lettering in the credits has a green cast over it now (instead of remaining white), surely that can't be intentional. Makes me start to wonder if there was...

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

    RAH: Thanks for the analysis of the screen caps and tv, it's very helpful. While I certainly understand Mark's concern (I would be quite annoyed if that scene were that green, discoloring the hobbits and their clothes), if you're saying on your well-calibrated tv that this scene is nowhere...

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

    Ah, ok. Thanks for the info. :) Too bad they didn't have the music video in HD. Or at least include it in the upcoming Extended Edition set, they have tons of extras there, and plenty of disks to put it on, why not include the music video also?

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

    Quick question for those that have the Blu-Ray set of the theatrical version of the trilogy. In the extras, the music video of Enya's excellent song (she should have won the Oscar that year), "May It Be", is that music video in 1080p on the disk, or is it the same as the music video in the...

    Fist of Legend SE

    Cameron Yee: Thanks for the info. Hmm, that's extremely strange for Chinese audiences to not be demanding to hear the real voices of their favorite action movie stars in movies in which they play the leading role. It's too bad, because then we don't even get to hear what Li sounds like in...

    Fist of Legend SE

    I have a question about the English subtitles. Are they reasonably accurate to what is being said in the original Cantonese and Mandarin soundtracks, or are they based on the English dubbing of the 5.1 soundtrack (which apparently is wildly inaccurate to what the characters are really saying)...

    What are the best speakers you have ever listened to

    pink: Yeah, the RM2's are great, superb sound quality. True world class sound for a price that is very reasonable. He puts all the money into the speakers themselves, little, if anything, is spent on advertising. You don't need to advertise when you get the kind of glowing reviews from new...
