    The official WORST STUDIO COVER ART thread. Post your worst covers!

    One I'm surprised no one posted yet: the new release of Tron.

    Trailers Ruin Movies

    Course, there are a lot of times when scenes in the trailer end up on the cutting room floor. That's happened a few times. (Scott Pilgrim Vs The World is the most recent example of something like that.)

    Netflix goes [email protected]#%@ insane, it's $16 a month now if you want to keep 1 DVD + streaming, $18 for 1 B

    Not really so clever, considering the mix of responses to how people are reacting to this news. If they wanted people to cut the DVD plan for streaming, their plan backfired for the most part, and that's mostly due to the lack of content online. Now, the reaction from me is to can the...

    What's the most you've spent on a music disc?

    I didn't realize that there was a version with the full audio. Most I paid was $50 for the special edition of Kevin Gilbert's "Shaming Of The True".

    Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)

    I kinda understand why that's there, because they wanted some good reason for him to wear the costume. But, I think I would rather have him fight Nazis. Personally, I enjoyed the film (at least, what I saw of it. I missed the end because I got a call from the people caring for my son...

    Cars 2 (3D Blu-ray combo) (Blu-ray Combo) available for Preorder on Amazon

    Actually, there has been so many deals on Disney Blu-rays that they have made it easy to buy them. (For example, the Tron/Tron Legacy combo and Cars/Incredibles combo both were irresistable to me.)

    Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)

    It is something that bugs my wife as well. We haven't gotten around to seeing it (Maybe on Friday), but the trend of Marvel to delete Nazis from the continuity bothers her. They did a similar thing in the Avengers animated series, where Cap is fighting against Hydra, not the Nazis.

    Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)

    The Washington Post gave a good review of the film today.

    Let the buying begin... 2011 B&N Criterion sale (50% off) begins Tuesday, July 12

    I mostly went to fill up on some of the Kurosawa that I don't own yet. (Yojimbo/Sanjuro two pack and Kagemusha) I was tempted by The Mikado as well, but the reviews weren't the greatest for it, so I passed. At one time I wanted Black Narcissus, but I've since seen it on TCM and I'm unsure...

    Trailers Ruin Movies

    Like it was going to be a really complex plot. What I get from both the teaser and the trailer is basically the same thing: cowboys fighting off an invasion of aliens. The only real addition of information is about one character who didn't appear much in the teaser who seems to have some...

    What Are Some of the Best Commentary Tracks?

    It is on the DVD. Personally, I find all Kevin Smith commentary tracks entertaining because he doesn't really take himself too seriously. I haven't seen too many commentary tracks recently, but I thought Edgar Wright's track for Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World was pretty entertaining.

    The official WORST STUDIO COVER ART thread. Post your worst covers!

    You know, I scratch my head sometimes at people thinking that a design that was great for one medium (movie posters) would always be an appropriate one for a much smaller DVD/Blu-ray cover. Granted, there are plenty of awful examples of DVD covers here where the original poster art would have...

    That's a problem relatively unique to Tivo. With the game consoles, you don't have that limitation. You can browse and search and watch stuff without adding it to your queue.

    Report: Blu-ray Sales Falling Short Of Expectations Even As Prices Decline. Are you still buying?

    Whenever I hear 'CGI is unreal', my reaction is that most effects will be 'unreal' because the level of belief isn't going to be there. Most aren't going to believe that a man is going to swing on a web across Manhattan, no matter what effects are used. Course, when it is used appropriately...
