    Films of the 1970's on DVD

    I second that! This is one of my favorite movies in general. It's a title I'd think any fan of 70's film should have. I'd add Race With the Devil to the list, that movie's a lot of fun. I'd also have to suggest Kelly's Heroes to anyone who hasn't seen it. One of the best movies of all time...

    Midnite Movies

    Anybody have a complete set of MGM MM's? I don't have a complete set, but I have all of the ones I want. 35 discs, about a dozen are the single releases and the rest are all the doubles. The bulk of them are the Corman/Price Poe releases, followed by the classic sci-fi and odd horror releases...

    Midnite Movies

    I don't think they ever released any titles as part of a Halloween promotion. If memory serves, when they started up the line on DVD they came out sporadically a few times a year just like any other titles would. I hate to say it, but I think this series is dead. I wouldn't waste my time...

    Horror Spoof Movies

    Yeah, that would be helpful. There's a good chance we'd be able to name the movie, even with the slightest hint. Lots of people who like the horror genre really like the spoof flicks as well. Any ideas when she saw it would help, too. To add to the list, there's Shriek if You Know What I Did...

    Appeal of "Dawn of the Dead"?

    Cosigned. It's good survival fiction. This is not aimed at the OP, but I read once where people who do not value their own life do not understand the appeal of survival fiction, whether it's a book or a movie. I always thought that was interesting.

    When does DeepDiscountDVD have their 20% off sale?

    This was something that caused a big debate on another message board. Members did a non-scientific price monitor, and found that prices actually did not go up before the sale.* What made it look like prices went up before the sale was that DDD generally has a a few different sales going on...

    When does DeepDiscountDVD have their 20% off sale?

    Usually in June and November if I remember correctly. They'll have them whenever they choose, though. And, since DDD has changed and expanded their site to sell lots of other merchandise, I wouldn't be surprised if they changed or discontinued the sale.

    Region Free DVD-R Unit

    Your best bet is probably to go to videohelp.com and search their database for multiregion dvd-r's.

    With demise of places like Tower Records where are collectors buying their dvd's?

    I agree with the Special Order. That always cracks me up when I get offered that at a store, any store. Yeah, I can special order it too! Maybe all cities couldn't support a retail store catering to film fanatics, but some can. Scarecrow Video in Seattle is a good example of that.

    With demise of places like Tower Records where are collectors buying their dvd's?

    Yikes! You must have had a super-magical Tower compared to the ones I've been to. ;) Three different cities, three different stores, all had the same rule of selling at FULL MSRP on DVDs. DVDs you could find at other B&M's around town for $19.99 or less were going for $24.99-$27.99. They had a...

    XM use on an airplane?

    You should be able to. The receiver is only receiving the signal that's already there; it's not sending out a signal of any kind (like a cell phone).

    WARNING for American AmazonUK customers! VAT glitch!

    Did you check to see if the price went down like it should, or did it just show 0 for VAT? The OP says it will still show 0 for VAT, even though they didn't really deduct it.

    Problem viewing PAL DVD's

    A modern digital TV, such as an LCD TV, regardless of being HDTV or SDTV, has a good chance of being multistandard. It may not be documented in the owner's manual, or it may be an option right in the TV setup; it all depends on the make/model of the TV. I have an EDTV plasma that allows you to...

    Quick question about DTS

    DTS will only be listed on a case if there is a DTS track on the disc itself. Most films are made with DTS for theatrical distribution, most don't include a DTS track on the DVD.
