    Your ONE Most Favorite Film of All Time?

    As someone said earlier, a near impossible question to answer. Having said that after much thought, I would have to say..." Dr. Strangelove: Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb." Easily one of the best comedies ever made and feature's stellar performances by Peter Sellers. Not...

    HD-DVD International DVD List -

    Was checking the site DVDGO in Spain and couldn't find "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly" anywhere on the site for HD-DVD. Is it out of print already? Please post link if you have it for that movie specifically. The only thing I could find was a pre-order for a special edition DVD of the...

    Borat DVD fakeout

    Umm, I think my post was very clear. Netflix has a link to "bonus materials available separately" for Borat, but if I'm not mistaken there isn't a bonus disc. Anyone know why Netflix has a bonus disc listed?

    Borat DVD fakeout

    Also, Netflix has a Bonus materials disc for rent. If I'm not mistaken there isn't a second disc? Maybe some more fakeout stuff. Anyone know anything about this? The bonus disc currently has a very long wait which is very rare for a bonus disc at Neflix. Later, Rick

    Wii preorders start tommorow

    Well, It was a waste of time to even try to get them online at Gamestop. At about 6:00 pm MST, I had just checked the web-site and it still had the message about pre-orders occurring sometime this evening and to keep checking. I then refreshed the screen no more than 5 minutes later and a...

    Wii preorders start tommorow

    I got an e-mail from Gamestop last night saying that Wii bundles will be available for pre-order online starting Thursday Evening CST. That's great, but they didn't give a specific time CST. Anyone have an idea of when the pre-orders will start Thursday evening? Thanks, Rick

    Any Well-Recorded Train Documentaries or Films Suitable For a 12 Year Old?

    James, This DVD is pretty cool. The Great Alaska Train Adventure. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/156...s=dvd&v=glance I haven't watched it in a while, so can't remember if the quality is top notch. But as I remember it didn't suck either. If you read all the Amazon reviews most people...

    "If you could see any band in history..."

    Definitely Hendrix.. but I would add Stevie Ray Vaughan at any Austin TX nightclub before he exploded on the national scene. That would have been unbelievable.

    ML Baseball 2005 discussion thread

    OK, I stand corrected. But I don't think it's necessarily a bad rule for the aforementioned reasons. I too would have liked the Red Sox to have a chance at home field advantage throughout the playoffs, but I wouldn't have liked them to have a playoff game just for that purpose with no day off...

    The Yankees don't even have home field advantage the first round of the play-offs even though they won their division. If it's so important for teams to get home field advantage, why didn't the Yankeees start Mussina instead of Wright to make that attempt? They wanted to rest up! The bottom...

    ML Baseball 2005 discussion thread

    The reason for the Red Sox and Yankees for not having a 1 game playoff is because they both have made the post season. You only have a playoff game if an actual playoff berth is at stake, not a seeding issue for home field advantage. Do you really think that the Red Sox and Yankees would 1...

    What is the STRANGEST thing you've seen people do while they are driving?

    I was in LA on Melrose Ave. with some friends and we saw a guy pleasuring himself while driving. It's something I wish I could forget but this thread revived that painful memory.

    When it isn't just a little over a month into the season and they make the playoffs and then do fairly well in the playoffs. Then I'll give them their due and not call it a phase. It's too early in the season to say if they're the real deal or not based on their performance over the last few...

    I think everybody's forgetting something obvious about Derek Lowe. I've been a big fan of his for year's. I'm also a big RedSox fan. But as any Red Sox fan Knows, we never knew what Derek lowe was coming to the mound that night. The guy with the awesome breaking stuff and somewhat cool demeanor...

    Maybe the article is a bit over the top.. but I thought the comment of Sheffield bragging about getting shot then taking his time to get a haircut before seeking medical help... Just priceless! A swipe from a fan is more of a crisis! ;) Of course only if this info is true. At any rate...

    I'd like to chime in on the agreement that all teams have fans that are morons; but getting back to Yankees fans... In one incident someone threw a knife at Wally Joyner in Yankee stadium. There is the battery throwing incident mentioned earlier... Dwight Evans once had a beer dumped on...

    Any comments on "Shoah", the documentary?

    I'd like to throw in another perspective on Mr. Lanzmann. A couple of years ago I read a book called "Explaining Hitler" by Ron Rosenbaum. Mr. Rosenbaum's ambition was to write a book detailing numerous and divergent ways in which scholars, Holocaust survivors and various other people have...

    Anyone experiencing Netflix problems?

    Joe, I'm going to give this e-mail thing one more shot and then will give them a call. Unfortunately, I've heard that the customer service number hasn't worked for many based on other sites on the web I've checked relating feedback in dealing with them by phone. But, we'll see. I was curious...

    Anyone experiencing Netflix problems?

    Well Everyone, Concerning my problem, I've sort of thrown down the gauntlet with Netflix. I have now e-mailed them 3 times requesting them to tell me why they are waiting a day to send me DVDs. I asked them in the e-mail to please not use a canned response. The canned response says that...

    Anyone experiencing Netflix problems?

    I know this is the case because the notifications from netflix used to say they were shipping a replacement disc the same day (notifications and the queue specify what day of the week they're sending a disc to a user)they received a movie back from me. Now, the notifications say they are...

    Anyone experiencing Netflix problems?

    I can most definitely say that this is not the case. I did have a 'long wait' movie in my queue at the top a couple of times, but they are waiting a day for every single movie I rent from them even when this isn't the case. Besides, before this recent development, they always shipped a...

    Anyone experiencing Netflix problems?

    I'd like to chime in on my netflix experience. I've been with them for about 2 to 3 years now. During that time they have sent a replacement disc the day they got one back from me. Now for about the last 2 to 3 months they are waiting a day to send me a disc back, everytime. I live in Denver...

    Best Place to Purchase SACDs

    Was nosing around on Overstock.com and did an SACD search. They have a few titles that appear to have competitive prices. Not a fantastic selection, but you might find something you're looking for. definitely worth a check. For an example: I got the Bob Dylan SACD set earlier this year for...

    Mike, Well I highly recommend emusic (if they get they're site working properly again). I got all of the Art Tatum Masterpieces for about 60$ by buying booster packs from emusic to augment my monthly prepaid downloads. If you just used the monthly downloads it would be even less. They also...

    Hi all, haven't been to this thread in awhile but just downloaded some things from emusic. Namely the complete Art Tatum Solo and Group Masterpieces. Anyone have any thoughts on these? I had actually posted a long time ago that I had purchased them but that was through Amazon and I really...
