    Notice anything strange on the Space: Above and Beyond main menus?

    I can't be the only one who noticed a certain space station from a different show on the menus for Space: Above and Beyond. Weird. I'm guessing whoever designed those menu backgrounds has never seen either show. :)

    To all studios - The "3 Complaint Super Angriest" thread (modified to fit your pc)

    I think the fact that some titles do DVD so right is what can make it frustrating when other titles don't deliver at the same level. Shrek was a fantastic release in 2001. Think about it, it had the full frame *and* anamorphic widescreen versions. It had DD5.1 *and* DTS. The first disc was...

    *** Official ELEKTRA Discussion Thread

    I don't think anyone who saw Spiderman 2 would put it in the same league as those other movies. Seriously, Spiderman 2 is about as good a comic book movie as you're going to see.

    I can still remember the HD, Blue-ray wars

    I don't get why still have to deal with interlaced video. I mean 6080i is great and all, but now I need to upgrade to a progressive scan SMUHD-DVD player (super mega ultra high definition) to get 6080p.

    DVD Review HTF REVIEW: Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED).

    There seems to be a lot of other fat in the middle that could be cut more easily.

    DVD Review HTF REVIEW: Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED).

    The first book has a mention of Dudley playing computer games, though there are very few references that tie things to a specific time period. I think the idea is that it's "present day" so that kids can relate to it a bit more.

    Ever edited your own version of a movie?

    Yeah, not much choice there. It'd be cool if they put isolated music, dialogue, and sound fx audio tracks on DVD's. :) Anyway, sounds like a real challenge.

    Ever edited your own version of a movie?

    Interesting thread! The ideas for alternate cuts of the Matrix sequels sound great. I still don't get how you deal with cuts that happen while the score is playing. You'd get really abrupt jumps from one part of the music to another, right? What's the solution?

    Why are dvd sales so popular?

    I'd recommend Netflix over buying blind though. It's one thing if you've already seen the content and know what you're getting, but if you buy something blind and end up not liking it, there are some down sides in addition to the cost. If you don't give the bad apples away or sell them (a...

    where do you buy your DVD's at?

    It's no mystery why Laser's Edge isn't mentioned first in a thread like this. It's clear most folks are looking at price as their #1 criteria. I could pre-order Matrix Revolutions at Laser's Edge for $23.94 plus $4 shipping (roughly $28). Or I could pre-order at deepdiscountdvd.com form...

    To Live and Die in LA - Specs & Cover!

    I picked this up the other day, since I remembered that I enjoyed it when I originally saw it years ago. I think I dug it even more this time! I had forgotten how far the main character went to the dark side. :) His ultimate fate seemed inevitable, but it's not something you see in movies too...

    HTF REVIEW: "Back To The Future Trilogy" (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED) (with screenshots)

    Ron's review was great! He obviously put a huge amount of effort into it. I found it very informative. Having just read Peter Bracke's review at dvdfile.com (also quite informative), I did find some amusing differences between the two reviews. It just goes to show how subjective some of these...

    Artoo-Detoo: Beneath the Dome DVD

    If you just want to check out the Beneath the Dome thing, I think you can watch it for free here: http://www.starwars.com/episode-ii/v...d/r2_btd1.html Apparently you have to register, which I assume is no big deal.
