    Time Travel In the Movies

    I've always thought that 12 Monkeys was pretty internally logical and consistent movie with respect to it's time travel. I was going to include Slaughterhouse Five, but upon reflection it doesn't seem to me to involve time travel so much as someone living their life out of order.

    Your DVD Player/Collection or your Tivo?

    OK, so it isn't exactly Sophie's Choice, but what if you had to choose one over the other? As much as it would pain me I would have to keep my Tivo and do without the DVD. The Tivo is a real life style changer, you just do not feel as tied down to the TV.

    Well I know you think this is another, "Wow, the X-Files is so not good anymore" thread, but in fact it is not. That just happens to be the name of tonight's episode -Jump the Shark. I am sure it is all just a coincidence though. :)

    UNOFFICIAL 2002 Stanley Cup Playoffs Thread!!

    Oh baby the time has come for the best tournament in all of sports. I am going with my Kings all the way, bay-beee! The East is so WEAK, any team that comes out of the West wil be favorites (IMHO ;)) P.S. if the mods wish to make this official, then more power to them.

    Cable Ready = Digital Cable Ready

    My TV says it is cable ready, but considering it is almost five years old I am wondering if that means it is digital cable ready (JVC-27980). I want to be able to split my Tivo so I can watch and record different shows at the same time and am not sure how to do it if the TV cannot accept a...

    MOVIES forum: Review vs. Discussion Threads

    I see a lot of people post their reviews for a movie in the Discussion thread and not the Review thread.

    Allow me to rant: Olympic Medal Ceremony

    How ridiculous is it that they have the medal ceremony at some sort of Medal park or whatever it is called? The medal ceremonies should be held at the respective venues so the fans who watched and appreciate the competition can see it. It also is stupid that the medal winners have to play...

    *** Official "MONSTER'S BALL" Review Thread

    I couldn't find any official review thread for this movie... Two fo the best performances of the year help hide the fact that there isn't much of a story here. This movie somewhat reminds me of the the quote (I can't remember who it was, "There is no there there". [/b]Monster's Ball[/b] is...

    Godfather III - inferior sequel or just misunderstood? (MERGED THREAD)

    I have noticed a lot of complaints (not necessariily here, mind you) about how "bad" Godafther III is. I read on another forum someone refer to it as an abortion, I recall the Simpsons making a joke about it ("That was worse than Godfather III" "Hey, hey let's not say things we can't take...
