    300 and TMNT in July

    On Tuesday this week I attended a WB press event for Planet Earth and got a little scoop on 300 and TMNT. 300 will be in late July, and TMNT sometime during the month. My source didn't give me an exact date, and that's pretty much all he could tell me. When I asked about hi-def he didn't deny...

    Sony KDS50A200 1080P LCD

    I've been looking for reviews on this TV and can't find any. I bought it today and it comes in on Friday, but is there anything I should be concerned about with this TV? It'll be used mostly for watching DVDs (SD and High-Def), occassionally gaming, and rarely TV. It's suppose to be 1080p...

    Samsung HLS5086 or Sony KFE42A10

    Hello all, I'm in the market for a new TV, and after perusing the market today I stumbled across these two TVs, which are in my price range. The Samsung is a DLP and the Sony is LCD. They're both roughly the same price and I'm having trouble deciding. Of course, there is an 8" viewing...

    The DVD Marquee - A DVD Podcast

    It's been a long time since I posted a thread on The DVD Marquee Podcast we've been working on. We've changed the format a little, started releasing shows weekly, as well as mini-marquees and movie-marquees, which are short reviews usually featuring 1 title. If you haven't visited in a while...

    Potter - GoF Transfer Issue

    I picked up Potter on DVD Tuesday and when I watched it I noticed in the darker scenes that it was blocky. Most notably was the open sequence (I haven’t finish the whole thing yet). It's the Canadian 2-disc SE version that I'm having the trouble with. It's not my setup because other films with...

    Hey everyone. I'm one of the hosts of the new HTF Radio show THE DVD MARQUEE and I'd like to get your feedback so we can improve the show. I know one of the main concerns will be the length of the show. We don't intend for the next show to be quite as long. Our plan is to keep it around the...

    Universal Does it Again w/ The Hulk

    Like most people I know here in town we all ran out to pick up The Hulk at our local retailer, being Wal-Mart or Zellers. Widescreen copies were bought, however, what was inside was not the widescreen edition, but the full screen edition. When I went back to the store there was nothing they...

    Are they to small?

    Yesterday I picked up a pair of Paradigm Cinema 70's. This morning I hit up the Paradigm site to get more info on them seeing as the guy at the store hardly could remember his name... anyway. I have an Onkyo TX-DS696, which 100Wx5 @ 8 Ohms. I just noticed that these speakers are only rated...

    Directors What's Your Favorite DVD Cover?

    I'm just wondering if you have a favorite DVD cover for any of the releases you have and what region are they. I'm not talking packaging, but the actual artwork. I think mine, right now, is Cowboy Bepop: The Movie (R1). It has the right mood for what's inside the case.

    King of the Hill Season 1 Video is darn-tootin' bad!

    I just finished reviewing KOTH and I have to say it's the worst video transfer I've ever seen. It's shaky beyond all belief. There's shimmering all over the place. Edge enhancement is super big during certain scenes. Plus, there's more noise than what come out of kids first crack at playin'...

    Speaker Wire Issue

    I've just begun my HT room and I've run into a snag when it comes to the terminals for the speaker wire at the component end of the room. I've searched the forums and found a few things, but I don't they'll work for me. I went to Radio Shack today and looked at what they have and unless they...

    Questions Don't Go Away

    Hi all. I'm about to embark on building my first HT room. I've got a room that's rougly 12x20 give or take a few inches and I have few questions I'd like to ask the HT pros around here. [1] First of all the ceiling, that was a finished drop ceiling, is unfinished. I want to block as much...

    Why an AMP?

    I know a fair share about home theatre and I'm afraid my knowledge falls short when it comes to AMPS. Why would I want an amp when I already have, what I consider, a kick butt receiver? What does an amp do that my receiver can't? Home Theatee Receiver: Onkyo TX-DS696 DVD Player: Sony...

    Cerwin Vega HT-S10 Subwoofer

    I just picked up the aforementioned model and I'm having a lot of difficulty getting anything, except on the LOTR DVD. I've set it up according to the setup guide for both the sub and the reciever (Onkyo TX-696). I've turned on the subwoofer on the reciever and have it turned up to +12db and...
