    "Crimewave" scheduled

    Amazon.co.uk and Play.com are both listing a 15-Aug-05 release date for "Crimewave". However there are precious few details posted. There are several films around with this title, but the running time listed on Play.com would be about right (allowing for 4% PAL speedup) for this to be the...

    Billion Dollar Brain - Music Rights Cleared?

    UK websites are reporting that MGM will release an R2 DVD of "Billion Dollar Brain" on 6 September 2004. Presumably the studio has either secured the music rights, or else the film has been redubbed. Does anybody know which? In his book "Starring Michael Caine" David Bishop reported that a...

    I read a while back that there will be a Region 1 two-disc Special Edition of "Il Postino" released later this year. Does anybody have any further details? I'd like to know because a Region 2 single-disc edition is currently available half-price in a UK chain store (MVC).

    Running time for "The Tall Guy"

    I wonder if anyone can help clear up some confusion? According to Halliwells, the running time for "The Tall Guy" is 92 mins. Websites selling the US (Miramax) DVD list the running time as 92 mins, but the Miramax sleeve states 85 minutes. Websites selling the Canadian (Alliance) version...

    The Tall Guy

    For anyone who's interested, Amazon is listing the "The Tall Guy" for release on 19 March 2002. I've been looking out for this movie on DVD since I bought a player. Does anyone know any further details? A widescreen transfer alone would be reason enough to buy this, but a commentary by Mel...

    This is the first message that I've posted on this particular forum, so hopefully this question is appropriate: I've just purchased a second-hand copy of the Gameboy game "WWF King of the Ring", but there were no instructions. I know a couple of websites that have posted manuals online but...

    "The Dancer" (2000)

    Does anyone know anything about the 2000 movie "The Dancer"? The French DVD has both French and English soundtracks, but only French subtitles, so I'd like to know if the English soundtrack is the original. This is listed as a France-originated movie by dvdfr.com but it does not state the...

    Best version of X-Men?

    I know that some Region 1 THX DVDs are inferior to non-THX R2 versions (eg the original releases of the Die Hard movies). On the other hand, I also know that some R2 PAL transfers are inferior to the corresponding R1 NTSC transfers (eg at least one of the R1 Star Trek DVDs had a better picture...
