    Ghostbusters 3?

    I have no doubt that there will be a Ghostbusters 3. There's just too much money to be made not to make it. These days, there's not much that isn't a sequel, prequel, remake, reboot, adaptation, spin-off, etc. If they release it during the Summer, which I'm sure they will, it'll be a...

    Lost: Season 5

    The biggest difference between doppleganger Locke and doppleganger Christian is that Locke's body was shown. This clearly shows that the real Locke is indeed dead and that some sort of manifestation (Smokey, The Island, Jacob's nemesis from the opening, etc.) is creating this doppleganger Locke...

    The only thing Fox needs to know, and cares about, is if this "product" will generate $.

    *** Official X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE Discussion Thread

    The CGI during the bathroom scene was probably necessary due to the sparks coming off of the claws while he was scraping them together. Still that's no excuse for the cartoonish look. The Professor X scene didn't bother me as much as I thought it would, but should he really have been smiling...

    Lost: Season 5

    I'm hoping that's not the last we see of Faraday. Can't Richard just bring him to the Temple and have him healed just like kid-Ben? Obviously Richard didn't mean for him to be shot.

    TRANSFORMERS 2 Rumblings/Filming!

    I would add Rob Cohen to that list as well. He's nowhere near the level of Bay. As far as Transformers movies go, the only things I'm looking for is that it's fun and it's at least as good as the animated series that it's based on. The first movie exceeded all of my expectations. I'm sure the...

    Lost: Season 5

    My guess - As shown in the last episode, it appears that in order to be an "Other", a visit is required to the temple led by Richard Alpert where a sort of transformation takes place. I'm guessing this transformation is what instills the behavior, beliefs and in some cases, physical abilities...

    80s Cartoons to Live Action

    I'm holding out for a Thundercats movie.

    Who is your favorite film composer?

    James Newton Howard - His stuff is sometimes hit and miss. King Kong (2005), Defiance, I Am Legend, Dinosaur, Atlantis, Waterworld, The Village, Unbreakable, Lady In The Water, Snow Falling On Cedars and The Waterhorse are all excellent scores. Then there's his scores for Michael Clayton, The...

    Fox to reboot "Fantastic Four"...

    Most movies these days are either sequels, prequels, remakes or adaptations (books, video games, tv shows, comic books, etc.). There is very little originality left in Hollywood these days. I have no problem with a reboot, but I wish Fox would let go of the property as they tend to royally...

    Lost: Season 5

    I'm wondering this as well. Where is Rose, Bernard, Vincent The Dog, the remaining background survivors, etc.? Also, what happened to the rest of the surviving Others, kids and all? I am guessing that they went into hiding after their defeat by the 815ers (back in season 3?). Did they...

    A few thoughts about.....The Oscars (2009)

    I watched the Oscars in hi-def and during the whole show, the lip movements and what was spoken were out of synch by at least a second or two. I got used to it after a while.

    A few thoughts about.....The Oscars (2009)

    I believe Patrick McGoohan died in January of 2009. Maybe that's why he wasn't included.

    Lost: Season 5

    Actually, that was the impression that I got from the episode. That the gun totin' young Other may in fact be Widmore's wife, aka Penny's mother. There is more of a resemblance between her and Penny than her and Faraday, if you ask me. That could be another possiblity as to why Faraday...

    Lost: Season 5

    Yeah, except that the whole time jumping thing wouldn't be happening to the island or the people on the island at all had Ben not turned the underground wheel thing. Obviously, Michael and Walt were able to leave without dire consequences to the people on the island or the island itself. What...

    Smallville season 8 thread

    Why is Clark such a wimp these days? It seems like he's always getting his ass kicked and ends up bleeding in almost every episode. Although it's refreshing not to have him succumb to Kryptonite in every episode as in the past, do they have to make him so physically vulnerable all the time? I...

    X-Men Origins: Wolverine

    That's got to be the best shot of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine yet! After X-Men, X2 and X-Men The Last Stand, they finally got the look and hair right (at least in that picture). Other than the height (he looks taller than Sabretooth!?!), that's the Wolverine from the comic books to me. ...and...

    The Era of "You Want Extras Ya Gotta Pay For 'Em" Is In Full Swing

    Joe, I appreciate your enthusiasm for Blu-Ray and I can definitelly relate. I've stopped buying DVDs completey and only buy Blu-Rays now. As a fan of movies and as a home theater enthusiast, I love the high definition picture and lossless soundtracks that the technology provides and I...

    Blu-ray Review HTF BLU-RAY REVIEW: Hancock

    The picture quality is excellent. However, I thought the audio for this release was really lacking. I noticed this when I saw it in the theater too, so maybe that was how the director intended it to be, but to me it seemed very anemic. For a lossless soundtrack, there was very little punch as...

    ER season 15

    I believe Benton is coming back for an appearance this season. I think his appearance ties into Carter's return.

    Smallville season 8 thread

    I think at this point, the only way they're going to be able to establish a dual identity between Clark and Superman in this version of the character is to have Clark wear a mask when he becomes Superman. Unless they have some kind of worldwide mind-wipe, I don't see how else they can do it.

    ER season 15

    I heard both Weaver and Romano (who will probably appear in flashback since he too was killed on the show) are coming back for appearances as well.

    Journey to the Center of the Earth (2008)

    So, I guess the rule with Warner Bros. is that if the movie is a box office flop, we shouldn't expect lossless high definition audio on a format designed specifically for high definition content. This only applies to new releases though, not catalog titles which are hit and miss when it comes to...

    Superman Returns re-release with new trueHD and PCM track!

    Does anyone know if this reissue will include a PCM track as well? I thought I read somewhere that the import TrueHD version currently being sold online also includes a PCM track which supposedly sounds better than the TrueHD track.

    Bits now confirms - Warner drops lossless audio for Speed Racer BD

    According to Bill's latest update, it's confirmed that the disc is BD-25 and NO Dolby TrueHD. I bet if HD-DVD was still around, Warner would have given it the full HD treatment with lossless audio and the works. What's the deal with them? Should we all start worrying now about The Dark...

    Audio Problems - The Mummy, The Mummy Returns Blu-Ray

    I agree. I suggest that all of those having this issue contact Panasonic either by phone or e-mail and make them aware that a firmware upgrade is needed to resolve this. The more that speak up, the more likely we'll see a fix.

    Audio Problems - The Mummy, The Mummy Returns Blu-Ray

    I purchased my receiver back in '04 and it runs perfectly fine. Considering the cost for a new receiver and what I paid for my existing receiver, I don't really see a need to upgrade just yet. With the 5.1 analog output, there's no reason many of us should have to miss out just because our...

    Audio Problems - The Mummy, The Mummy Returns Blu-Ray

    As popular as the PS3 is, it doesn't have everything. Such as 5.1 analog outputs, which saves many of us from having to buy new receivers.

    Audio Problems - The Mummy, The Mummy Returns Blu-Ray

    So no one else here is using a Panasonic DMP-BD10A that confirm these issues? I tried contacting Panasonic about this, but I doubt they'll worry about a firmware upgrade if no one else is having these problems. Help please!!
