    Reservoir Dogs SE Screen Shots

    I'm just glad that I bought the Reservoir Dogs R2-UK, which have a beautiful anamorphic transfer (near reference quality!) and the orginal stereo mix, which suits the film perfectly!

    Lauryn Hill - MTV Unplugged No. 2.0

    "Lauryn Hill - MTV Unplugged No. 2.0" I've seen the show on MTV some months ago and was stunned. Is there any one who have the DVD and can tell me about the quality of the sound and the video? And does it contain the complete performance? Also, is there any reviews of this DVD outthere?

    How to tell dual-layered discs from single -ayered?

    I was wondering how to tell dual-layered discs from single-layered? I read the offical DVD FAQ, and it says that you can look at the gold color on the disc. Well, the problem is that this method only works on R1-discs. I have checked quite a few R2-discs which I know for sure is dual layered...

    If _Star Wars_ were on D-VHS...

    "If Star Wars were on D-VHS..." ...then somebody would manage to make excellent quality bootleg DVDs and sell them for a lot of money! ...which is the reason why I think they don't come on D-VHS. I know this topic were meant different, but I just thougt about the headline. Anyway, this...

    Commentary Tracks -- who listens?

    I have listened to very few commentaries. I think they destroy the movie actually. I like making my own analyzes of a movie and don't want the director who made the movie to say I'm wrong I do like and hear some commentaries though. For example I enjoyed the "Almost Famous" track with Cameron...

    HTF REVIEW: "The Usual Suspects - Special Edition" (with screenshots)

    I could be wrong, but putting two transfers on the same side of a DVD couldn't possible be a good thing! So what's the deal? Is the transfer really that good? And how did they actually put the movie on the same side twice? -Are the "Fullframe" and "Widescreen"-versions placed on their each and...

    Art for LOTR Extended and BTTF Trilogy!

    If the BTTF cover is something like with The Godfather DVD, then I think it's kind of cool. Then this would only be the outer cover. The individual disc-covers inside the outer cover will hopefully be the original poster arts, as these are kind of cool, and shouldn't be messed with.

    Picture artifacts on DVDs

    Thanx for the explanations I haven't connected my DVDplayer via s-video, so that might be the problem. But why do I see the same kind of artifacts when I play DVDs via DVD-ROM and use the PC monitor then? I fully understand the word "pixelization" now I think. I also understand your...

    Canadian DVD's lower video bitrate?

    I think I've read somewhere that the canadian release of "Memento" should look worse than the USA-version. I don't know if this is correct, but who actually cares about these 2 DVD's now? I think we're all waiting for that special edition to be anounced...

    What format are TV shows in (originally)?

    I was wondering how a TV show (both cartoons, sitcoms and other TV series) is recorded. Are they originally recorded with 30 frames per second as an NTSC transfer? Or are they recorded with 24 frames per second like movies? Examples... Cartoons: "The Simpsons", "Walt Disney shorts", etc...

    12 Monkeys: Ultimate Edition

    I'm still not sure which version of "12 monkeys" I'll buy. I have some questions though, that proberbly would make my decision easier: 1. What is the bitrate for the Dolby Digital 5.1 track on the R1-release? 2. Is there English subtitles on the DTS-release? I have looked at scanned back...

    How is the video recorded on a DVD?

    Hey, thanx for all your answers! I'm glad you all actually undstood my question (I din't after reading it again ). Anyway, so the conclusion on this thread is, that in theory anamorphic images and non-anamorphic images look the same on a 4:3 TV. But because anamorphic images doens't take as...
