    Panny 35 not playing blurays, just dvds

    I have just started having the same problem with my Panny BD60 - although mine won't play certain BluRays, while still playing others. For example: i tried to watch The Dark Knight last night, and the machine wouldn't read the disc, yet, when I inserted the special features disc, it read fine...

    DVD Review HTF REVIEW: The Chronicles of Narnia - THOROUGHLY RECOMMENDED

    Sorry that this is a bit late, but i just wanted to reprint a mini-review I wrote to my friends about it a few days after the movie came out here in Australia. I reprint the thing with no editing, so any mistakes in it are as originally written. And please keep in mind this is not a review of...

    Nostalgia...Where have all the ENTERTAINERS gone?

    Just think, Hollywood could still be churning out those old-style Hollywood musicals and comedies, filled with todays stars, and be utter rubbish. Or, you could watch all the classics and thoroughly enjoy them. Personally, I am thankful that Adam Sandler and his ilk dont try any of those old...

    What dvd are you watching for St. Paddy's day?

    for me, just Boondock Saints is the only film to watch on St Paddy's Day. "There was a firefight!"

    Your REALISTIC wish-list for the first 12 months

    My vote, somewhat sentimentally, goes to Twister , just because it was one of the first DVD's released, and secondly because I have yet to see a copy of it thats actually any good on disc: no region version has yet to satisfy me for picture quality. Hopefully, the HD version should improve...

    Do you invariably associate a studio logo/theme with a particular movie?

    Carolco = Cutthroat Island. Universal = Jurassic Park Regency = True Lies (although Fight Club has now superseded it) Imagine Entertainment = Ron Howard Castle Rock = Shawshank Redemption

    Which region has the best audio/video transfer of Armageddon?

    Armageddon here in Australia comes in a great 2-disc set thats similar (but not the same) to the Criterion Region 1 release. The improvement that we have is that the picture is anamorphic (and quite good, too). Apart from that, the PAL speedup issues and PAL/NTSC format issues aside, the region...

    NEW HD format to be launched...the industry responds to HTF demands!

    Personally, I'm waiting to see what kind of sticker they use on the x-rated discs! now THAT would be interesting. And i could quite easily see a benfit to scratch-and-sniff.

    The infamous MGM vault fire

    And lets not forget the fire at Aardman last year that claimed a lot of animation history.... perhaps not as old as Fox or MGM material, but still worth mentioning.

    "i should have seen this film years ago!"

    I have to confess that up until a year or so ago i was not a fan of "classic" older films, pre-1970. So for ages I had no idea about films like Lawrence of Arabia, Spartacus etc etc. Those older films i tended to look upon with disdain, opting instead for the commercial, hyperkinetic...

    Will you be rushing into the new Hi-Def formats in 2006?

    Put my name down for this as well please. I thoroughly agree.
