    Console Questions

    Just wanted to be clear. So I would still need to buy the X-box remote so I could use other remotes.

    Console Questions

    Awesome responses fellas! You have left me much to think about. While I am a casual gamer, I do like multiplayer games so the X-box has the slight edge there. However, the machine will be used primarily to show DVDs but I don't mind buying the remote. I really need to decide what 2-3 games I'm...

    Great. Thanks for both your opinions. I must admit I'm leaning towards the X-box because of X-box Live but since most of my friends have PS2 systems, I would have greater access to games with that system. Thanks again for your input. If anyone else cares to respond, I welcome other opinions.

    DVD Review HTF REVIEW: "About Schmidt" (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED) (with screenshots)

    Great review, Ron. I saw this the night it premiered (New York, LA and Omaha) and loved it. This movie is alternatively thought provoking and funny - hilariously funny for those who have lived in the Omaha area. You almost have to be local to "get" the mockery of the Woodmen tower cake, the...

    Crossroads (The Blues Film)

    I've asked for this one here a few times myself. I would really love to see this DVD. For those interested in a little Crossroads (the actual intersection where the bluesmen sold their souls) history, Slate has put up an interesting peice about it:

    Weekly Roundup 8/20

    Count me in as another who got the incredible Pulp Fiction/Jackie Brown $5 off deal + a free From Dusk 'til Dawn at my local Best Buy. What a great deal, one which I would have never known about without HTF and Mr. Lambert. Thanks much David!

    *** Official Thread - Robert Harris - Home Theater: Part One & Two - An Archaeology

    Wow, what a great article! I'm looking forward to many more articles from Mr. Harris. I can only hope that this additional exposure on The Bits will add to the legendary status that the film preservation/restoration community, cinemaphiles and members of HTF have known for a long time. Thank you...
