    Scary Movie 3 Audio problem

    Did anyone else pick up this dvd this week? I blind bought it just for the heck of it as I was in the mood for a comedy, and was actually pleasantly surprised by it. There were more than a few instances where I laughed quite loud. However, the audio, specifically the 5.1 audio track, sounded...

    Newly released Abyss 2-disc set with different cover art (Phooey on Fox)

    What is Fox's problem? They have had an unbelievable amount of time and several chances to get this film an anamorphic release. But they dropped the ball yet again! Upon seeing the new cover art and thinking that it would not simply be a re-release of the exact same product, I was hoping for the...

    Narc dvd thread

    This dvd comes out Tuesday, what are your thoughts on it? I didn't catch it theatrically but was very interested in it. I found this review: http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/read.php?ID=6613 in which it's boasted that "What was most pleasing about the transfer was the near-total lack of...

    American Graffiti DVD- good or bad transfer?

    I was wondering about the transfer quality of this dvd. I know it's an early dvd but it has just gotten a price cut at most of the major retailers and I was wondering if the transfer is worthwhile. Thanks!

    The Adventures of Antoine Doinel...worth buying?

    I see that Criterion is putting out a 5-disc boxed set of these films for 99.99 that is to be released this Tuesday. I believe all of the films except 400 Blows are being released by Criterion for the first time, with 400 Blows being a reissue of an out of print dvd. However, 400 Blows is...

    I just purchased this dvd and was a bit confused as to how red everyone's face is.... Is this how it was theatrically? On the VHS the faces were nowhere NEAR this red.

    Ghosting on the KV-34XBR800

    Hi, I have this widescreen HDTV and last night was watching hockey on ESPN and ESPN2. I noticed huge outlines following every player on the ice. Is this what is known as ghosting? I couldn't really tell if it was happening on other channels. Is this most likely something with my tv or the...

    Question about watt output for the Sony DA4ES

    Hi, I have no speakers yet for my STR-DA4ES but wanted to test it. A friend has small bookshelf speakers that handle up to about 60 watts. I believe that the DA4ES outputts 120 watts per channel.

    Should home theater discs such as Avia be used on all televisions, not just RPTV's?

    I was wondering if it would be worth it for me to purchase an Avia setup disc.... I have the 34 Inch Sony Widescreen Trinitron XBR HDTV television. I have heard much about the Avia set-up disc but it always seems to be used when referring to RPTV's....is it worth it to use it on my television?
