    Press Release Criterion Press Release: The War of the Worlds (1953) (Blu-ray)

    Interesting Howie! Your post reminded me to have a look at the Best Buy app. They have it shipping on time and arriving on the 9th If I order today. Hmmmmm. A few alternatives now.

    Press Release Criterion Press Release: The War of the Worlds (1953) (Blu-ray)

    Hi David, I was going to check when the Barnes and Noble sale started. Part of me is thinking with Covid 19, I’ve been sheltering and avoiding going to the stores, even for curbside pickup. So a small price hit by going with Amazon was worth it to me. I normally go to B&N in person during each...

    Press Release Criterion Press Release: The War of the Worlds (1953) (Blu-ray)

    I just did a pre-order on Amazon for the Criterion War of the Worlds. However, I’m surprised the estimated delivery date is July 27th. I don’t think Amazon and Criterion are feuding over anything, so I’m not sure what the delay is. Maybe this is CYA in case shipping is delayed due to Covid. Or...

    What's cooking?

    A cast iron pan is also on my list. And I want to add a cast iron wok. I worry about non stick pans. Maybe the new ones are better, but I worry about the coatings coming apart and into the food.

    What's cooking?

    Thanks for that link. I imagined one day replacing my pots and pans with a nice clean designed set. Those All-Clads look very nice. But good to know about the handles. I had an older set of Revere Ware from my parents that I still use. I no longer want to use non-stick. I only use stainless...

    Ha, ha! Thanks Rodney for that information! I had a good laugh because I was doing things in such a hard way! I should have known there would be a simpler way!

    Blu Ray drive for Mac Pro

    Guys, just wanted to chime in real quick. Yesterday, I did some more MKV conversions and wrapped up the seventh season of Star Trek The Next Generation. Wow, it’s hard to believe I finished that series. It was harder then doing Star Trek The Original series just by the sheer number of episodes...

    Scott Atwell Star Trek Discussion thread (Series and Films)

    I watched Frame of Mind the other day. I think my view of it has improved, I had not remembered how it was resolved, but I kind of figured it was going there. It was kind of like First Contact, when Riker is captured on the planet. Except this was a darker version! I’m 5 episodes into the...

    What's cooking?

    Hey guys, I wanted to follow up with the question I posted about knives. I decided on the Henckels line because it’s a brand I have now and a friend also highly recommended the 5 Star line he has. After doing some reading and YouTubing, I learned a lot about the blade design and handle designs...

    Wow, just saw this thread. I first reaction when I saw the banner image of the ship on the tracks was, Really!? I’ve been hoping and hoping that like War of the Worlds, if this will get a blu ray release. I’m very happy that War of the Worlds is coming out on blu ray next week. So I hope that...

    Blu-ray Review The Rockford Files: The Complete Series Blu-ray Review

    Hey guys- I wanted to chime in on this thread now that I finally own the Mill Creek blu ray set of The Rockford Files. I just received it last week. It’s been a set I’ve been wanting to add to my collection for some time. I never bought the DVD sets. i remember watching the series as a kid and...

    STAR TREK: Strange New Worlds

    I finally watched The Trouble with Edward the other night. I wasn’t fully aware of the content of the story, but I was a little hesitant to see it as I had a sense it might be a comedy. I was a little surprised by the story as it unfolded and had so many questions. But the way it ended and...
