    Just flipping through Alien Quardrilogy set, watching Alien Resurection, learned that Joss wrote or was highly involved in the script. Now after seeing Firefly and watching Alien 4, I see a lot of similarities in the freelancing small ship and rugged crew with quiet young girl theme. Even the...

    FIREFLY DVD Discussion Thread (Merged)

    I just finished the fourth disc including the extras. As much as the cast and crew spoke lovingly with tears in their eyes about the show, I also sat with deep emotion and sadness that such a great show ended so prematurely, yet not much was mentioned about hope for it to be revived except...

    Firefly is my new favorite dvd tv series. I absolutely love it, the characters stories CG action dialog writing... I am terribly sad that it is only 14 episodes and has ended. Why couldnt this show be revived, it should go on and on, why are there seasons of beastmaster, xena, and Hercules...

    Sony ES DVP-CX777ES 400 disc DVD/SACD changer

    http://www.hometheaterforum.com/htfo...ony+dvpcx777es I am getting one. I think the DAC will make a big difference worth the extra 300$. I know the 985 looks awfully similar, but after reading around on the web, I am convinced that the ES will offer much more than just a shiny silver casing.

    Need Movie Recommendations For Very Religious Person

    I would recommend Bruce Almighty- only one sexual type seen nothing shown, very good morals and values while extremely funny. Actually the Matrix has many religious subtexts, especially Matrix Revelations, invite her back to see 2, and 3, seems the movies horrible ending would make better...

    Battlestar Galactica: The Complete Epic...Announced!

    I like the big box. When I bought it I was expecting the standard size box as it looks from the Circuit City ad at a fancy 79.99. When I got to the store the box was so huge, I was excited, it looked cool and for all the money I spent it helped me to feel I was getting something for my money...

    Any specifications on upcoming Kickboxer release 15th of July ?

    I did some checking and yes it is animorphic, but it isnt widescreen, I think its full frameP&S. Sorry for misleading you. I have watched it a couple of times and since it is animorphic it fills up my widescreen TV like a 1:85:1. This is an older movie shot at low production quality so I didnt...

    Battlestar Galactica: The Complete Epic...Announced!

    Wow so many BSG fans! Am I the only one who snatched up the new comic books done about 5 years ago? If you could only see them, they are very nicely drawn and written, will bring you right back. I only wished I still had my BSC toys. I think they are more rare than starwars, and some were...

    "They Live" coming out in R1 in October....

    Please update us on how the new transfer and sound is. I have the image disc sitting on my shelf, strangely it is unopened. I never got around to watching it, yet I consider it a must have movie, which I feel is under appreciated. I went to the theater and saw this as a kid, it is one of a few...

    Technology is moving *too* fast

    I say way too slow. hollywood greed and copy protection paranoia is slowing things up. How bout that HDTV signal and channel selection that barely exist eventhough HDTV came out several years ago! I was an early adopter, and I didnt get the dish, so I am still waiting for some HDTV signals that...

    DVD Recorder Purchase Help (DVD-RAM Compatible)

    I had the same exact question. I was wondering how you could get the flagged dvd ram onto the dvd-r. I guess unless you had the hard drive Panny, you would have to have a dvd ram playing on your dvd player that supports ram, and play it into the dvd recorder, though Im not sure if the recorder...

    **4 New Superbit on August 5th**

    The first Starship Troopers release had excellent picture quality, when the second version came out it was hard for people to point out the subtle differences on what some considered to be a perfect transfer. Now that Im on the DTS bandwagon and I love Starship Troopers I probably will by...

    Kenwood VR-6070 closeout at BB: worth it?

    Well gee Scott I never claimed to have an all THX system, and I understand all parts needed to = THX home theater. I do believe that the THX processing and certification of the 6070 due make it perform = sound = run more eficiently than the 6060, you yourself have given some specs and facts to...

    Kenwood VR-6070 closeout at BB: worth it?

    This is an emotional thread. I tried to also just walk away, but after todays entries, I decided to come back for a little more. Afterall, Capt was wondering why Bill Will hadnt come to his aid earlier, so Im gonna back up Lee on this one. Scott, After you gone and accused me of being...

    Kenwood VR-6070 closeout at BB: worth it?

    Thanks for the readers digest. It still seams one sided. For every negative report you provided, I have read three times as much praise. Unfortunately, or maybe fortunately, you did not provide every comment made anywhere on the 6070, but to say I didnt look close enough is incorrect. I actually...

    Kenwood VR-6070 closeout at BB: worth it?

    "You say that you can adjust the treble and bass, but you fail to mention that you can only do that when the unit is in the Stereo only mode." I didnt realize that being brand new to the receiver, but thats a good point, and I already acknowledged that I didnt know much about Bass Management...

    Kenwood VR-6070 closeout at BB: worth it?

    I have been discussing the 6070 at length on another forum. I posted to the Capt that I did appreciate his input re THD, but I disagreed that the 6060 was the same as the 6070, and that clipping and overheating to shutdown was anything other than a defect and not the norm. I also wrote that THX...

    Most powerful receiver under $500

    Scott, I dont think you were raining on my parade or slamming Kenwood just for the fun of it. I welcome your input. I pointed out that several of the known flaws simply didnt bother me due to my set up and expectations. Also I had read your concern about THD and had asked if you or others...

    Most powerful receiver under $500

    Thats why I, and apparently a few others recently bought it. It has received numerous reviews with consistent praise and concerns. The flaws were pointed out, and the features and power were highlighted making the 6070 a highly recommended or at least good buy. Then the price dropped out the...
