    What Spielberg movies you didn't like and why?

    I saw the other thread and thought to start this myself. Even weak Spielberg movies are better than average and have some redeeming qualities. Now the more interesting question would be which of his movies you can’t stand! From the top of my head, for me it would be Amistad and Minority Report.

    Spider-man 2 BD – DVD comparison shots

    I recently purchased Spider-man 2 on BD because the DVD I owned didn’t look that good. I wanted to make a comparison shot to show just how bad the DVD looked compared to the BD, it’s really like night and day! I only made “one” for the moment because it was a pain in the a… to make it!

    Pink Panther 2006

    Didn't find any topics related to this in this section. I got the new Steve Martin Pink Panther last week and saw it last night. I was pleasantly surprised and didn't expect it to be this "good", with all the negative buzz before the release of the movie. I think it's better than your average...

    I have a progressive DVD Player and Plasma TV and I'm using progressive output daily but I just realized I know nothing about progressive scan! I don't know how it works and there are some major plot holes in the scenario for me. What I have learned is that when an NTSC film is played by the...

    Being There - outraged!

    "Being There" has been one of my favorite movies. Actually it’s one of my early "serious" movies where I grew up from watching "Star Wars" and "Indiana Jones" movies into watching "other" movies. Anyway has been a long time since I had seen it on VHS and saw that it’s available on DVD. Got the...

    DVDs and Speakers

    Wanted to check something. I would normally think that unlike VHS, speakers have no effect on CDs and DVDs and wouldn’t deteriorate them. But is this true and are we absolutely sure that putting DVDs on speakers is not a bad thing?

    I have a vague memory about a Charlie Rose interview with Oliver Stone on a DVD but I can not find anything in my collection. Am I dreaming? Has there been any Charlie Rose interviews with Oliver Stone on DVD? and if yes what movie? I thought that it should be on JFK, but it’s not! Thanks!
