    Two different cases for SNOW WHITE Blu-ray...I bought the wrong one!

    The OP is not clear on which case is the "right one" - the Blu-ray standard-sized case or the DVD standard-sized case?

    SUPERNATURAL - Season 3

    I know he'll eventually get out of his soul-selling contract (this is a TV show afterall and he's one of the stars), but I still want to see "how" he does it. (So far, the show has not given away an "out clause" they can use).

    SUPERNATURAL - Season 3

    This last episode (which is the last of the "in the can" bunch :frowning: ) was pretty good, although yet another play on a movie, this time the original Assault on Precinct 13. Still a good storyline development with the introduction of Lilith setting up the upcoming episodes now in production.

    The AFI 100 Years List for 2008...

    They omit the Horror genre, yet include the Sports genre even though there are far more great Horror films than there are great Sports films, plus the total of Sports films ever made is pretty small compared to most genres (especially Horror).

    Manhattan & The Apartment

    On Woody Allen's films, I'd just be happy with an anamorphic transfer of Annie Hall (I still don't understand why his most famous film got arguably the worst transfer of the bunch.)

    *** Official SUNSHINE Discussion Thread

    The July 20th date is a limited release. It doesn't go wide until July 27th from what I've heard. Also, this weekend Richard Roeper listed it as one of the movies to be reviewed on "Ebert & Roeper" (or now more accurately "Roeper and guest-of-the-week") that'll be broadcast next weekend, so...

    Is there a "Repair" option under your connection's properties? If so, that'll re-establish your connection.

    Anyone heard William Shatner's hilarious rendition of LUCY IN THE SKY WITH DIAMONDS?

    Here it is... Shatner singing "Rocket Man" in 1978 (before even he was in on the joke and became a self-parody): Stewie from Family Guy singing "Rocket Man" Shatner-style: :laugh:

    New Kubrick SE's

    And that makes sense. So for standard TV formats (VHS, LD), release the films framed for the 4:3 format. But for widescreen TV formats (DVD, HD-DVD, Blu-ray), release the films framed for either 16:9 or 1.85:1 format. .

    *** Official THE DESCENT Discussion Thread

    You guys really need to use spoiler tags, particularly for a movie like this. And the U.S. and U.K. endings are drastically different. For anyone who only saw the U.S. ending, the U.K. ending is viewable here to see what we missed. (I think this original ending was much, much better) .

    What resolution are you looking for: 720p or 1080p? What screen size?

    Pretty good sale prices at Circuit City

    Looks like CC is possibly bringing some of its prices in-line with BrandsMart. The price for the 60" SXRD is the same as BrandsMart's, and the one for the 50" SXRD beats BrandsMart by a few hundred buck.

    Classic films that tanked at the box-office

    The Iron Giant was a huge flop in 1999, but is generally recognized as a modern animation classic. It's a Wonderful Life, though, may be the best example of a flop that, many years later, developing into a classic that everyone sees.

    BFI's Fifty Films a Child should see by Age 14

    Steve Christou I personally would prefer that kids read Lord of the Rings and the Harry Potter books instead of see the movies. Kids don't read enough as is, so these books are at least a good start in getting them to read instead of watch everything as the movie-version.

    The greatest and most unusual movie WEAPONS.

    Conan's sword from Conan the Barbarian (I've always liked how it has a place to grip it beyond the hilt) The Blasters from Star Wars (okay, the scopes are off enough that it's hard to hit the broadside of a barn with one, but the sound they make is :emoji_thumbsup: )

    "Fox Reuniting Itself with 'Family Guy'"

    Sean Moon Yes, the Chappelle Show Season 1 boxed set is now the #1 selling TV-show DVD boxed set, while Family Guy Seasons 1 & 2 boxed set is #2. (But #2 in sales out of every TV boxed set released is still pretty good ;) )

    Desperate Housewives ongoing thread
