    Blu-ray Review Fringe: The Complete Third Season Blu-ray Review

    I'm having the same problem playing the special features on my Oppo as well, and I just updated the firmware with no improvement.

    Ebert & Roeper Move On / New Hosts Announced

    I've really been enjoying the show this season with Michael Phillips and AO Scott, both of whom I'd rate way above Roeper. Wouldn't you know it, the last show and my local SF Bay Area network preempts it with a Time Life infomercial. Any way to catch it online?

    Beatles in Mono.

    I'm glad everyone else's set arrived safely. Mine was packaged in a larger box, with no protection, just banging around in it. I did open the box, and plan to play them for the next 10 days until I have to send them back. They certainly could have included the stereo mixes on the same disk...

    Beatles in Mono.

    I received my mono box set from Amazon today, and the box was completely smashed in on one corner, although the disks seem fine. I called for a replacement and they told me it would be end of October, but I would have to return this set within 10 days. Having it in my hands I'm reluctant to...

    Gladiator Blu-ray - release date 09/01/2009 - Read before buying!

    With the $10 rebate from the DVD, it actually comes to $2.95, which is about what it is worth. IMO, this is the worst blu-ray transfer I have seen. It's even worse than Patton, which I was able to watch and enjoy. The EE here is more distracting, and the lack of detail is more prominent...

    True Blood: Season Two

    I agree with Lou. I'm hoping this was not a "jump the shark" episode, but I don't know how you can redeem this towns people go crazy story line. I at least hope the Queen is not a deus ex machina solution to the problem.

    Can We Expect Pea Soup on a Priest Any Time Soon?

    This was in the first batch of DVDs Warner released, and the first DVD I bought back in 1997 I believe. I hope they follow suit and release in soon on BR.

    Lost: Season Four

    Do no one else notice that the Jack in the flash forward had no appendectomy scar? They seemed to go out of the way to show him shirtless in order to demonstrate it. It seems to point to some alternate reality, or else the island's power to heal scars.

    Looking for the most jaw-dropping DTS-HD MA track on blu...

    I second the Orphanage. I watched it in DTS MA this week, and it had me jumping out of my seat. The video is also first rate- the color is a little washed out, which I assume was the original intention, but the detail is spectacular.

    Blockbuster Online Hi Def Rental

    I've been very happy with Netflix for SD. It's only BD where they seemto have very few copies to go around. Unless you're lucky enough to get a copy the day of release, it always seems to be a very long wait.

    Blockbuster Online Hi Def Rental

    I switched from the 3 at a time to the 2 at a time because I wasn't getting what I wanted anyway. I rent 2-3 movies a week. Maybe they're better with HD than with BD.

    Blockbuster Online Hi Def Rental

    Every BD title I've had in my Q (15) at Netflix has been long or very long wait for over a month. I've actually received exactly 1 new release BD title from them in 2 months. I'm ready to try BB, but can't seem to fing ANY BD titles on their website. Is there a trick to searching for them...

    DVD Thinpak and other Slim Cases

    I've been converting to slim packs, and would like to do my snappers. I have about 50 of them (10% of my collection). I see the DVDCoverart site is no longer functional. Is there any other place to get snapper cover art on the web? Thanks.
