    TCFHE Press Release: Star Wars: The Complete Saga (Blu-ray)

    This is very interesting indeed.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Back to the Future -- in Blu-ray

    I haven't found another thread on this, but in case you didn't know, my brother in law ordered this set for me from Amazon and the case had hubs. This was the U.S. release, btw. I'm wondering if Universal quietly changed the packaging... much better than that Season 6 set of The Office with its...

    Experiencing "Pixelation" using analog TV converter Box

    So does anyone have any recommendations for converters, or know of a site that has recommendations? Some brands seem to be quite slow responding, as mentioned above.

    1987, people. 1987. It's sad to think how desperately these need remastered. That doesn't mean I want "louder is better," but a fresh remaster. Oh well, they will eventually come.

    Zune WMA Lossless Files- Can They Be Converted To iPod?

    As an owner of a Zune and and iPod, I do believe on iTunes there is an option to convert Windows Media Files to mp3's. I do not know for sure if they will work if they are copy protected. I know I bought a few songs on iTunes and if they are locked they couldn't be transferred to the Zune. It...

    Will there be another "Vertigo" release soon?

    This always bothered me about McNeely's Psycho recording as well. Just too slow. Elfman's score had more of the tempos right, but it wasn't complete. A shame really. Back on topic, I have the original Vertigo recording and it's nice, even if a bit inconsistent in quality.

    some summer 2008 movie bets I made with a "friend"

    When have Bond movies ever been about realism? I admit I didn't always like the close-ups, but overall this movie was quality, IMO. I also think Dark Knight will be strong. Batman Begins definitely had to overcome the previous Batman sequels, and I know there are those out there that waited...

    Dream Theater - Systematic Chaos in 5.1!

    I would kill for most of their albums in 5.1. I don't have DVD-A or SACD, but I loved their 5.1 Special Edition of their latest.

    "Justice League of America", I'd like a live action film please

    It's likely going to, and if everything works out to Warner's liking, it will be in theaters summer of 2009. This is getting to be less rumor and more likely.

    Hitchcock Masterpiece collection - a significant improvement?

    Chuck, thanks so much for the screen caps. I own this set, but it was great to see the comparisons. I'm glad I went with the upgrade.

    Dream Theater - Systematic Chaos in 5.1!

    Right, so maybe the "they're older" claim wasn't the best, but what I was trying to say is that Dream Theater fans usually go because of their musicianship. Metallica is mainstream enough that some casual fans would go for the party. Maybe I'm generalizing. Not knocking Metallica either....at...

    Dream Theater - Systematic Chaos in 5.1!

    The animation was fun. The same person that's on the Octavarium disc. I also saw Jordan play the "keytar." I don't know if that's the real name or not, but you get the idea. Seeing him dueling alongside Petrucci was a lot of fun. They also ended with the medley in Dallas/Ft. Worth. It's...

    Dick Tracy

    I seem to remember there being a rumor about a darker director's cut of Dick Tracy. I don't really think there was any truth to that, but an SE would be nice.

    Seeing the band tonight. Pretty excited. This is my second time seeing them.

    1408 DVD due for release Oct 2nd:the next DVD to have Unrated WS & Rated P&S versions

    Eager to see this on dvd, but I think in 2007 they shouldn't even bother with P&S versions.

    Dream Theater - Systematic Chaos in 5.1!

    Thanks for the correction. Even still, much more than two and I could get restless, no matter who it is. Maybe not, though.

    Warner finally announcing some horror for Halloween!

    The old laserdisc is about the only thing I use my LD player for these days. I own the old dvd as well, and I saw it go for almost 60 bucks on ebay, so I put mine there. Up to $21 so far. "But with Warner pretty much announced street date for all their SD titles for October, maybe Joe is...

    Dream Theater - Systematic Chaos in 5.1!

    Seeing them in Dallas...err...... Grand Prarie to be exact on August 2nd. I'm taking my girlfriend because my two friends that are DT fans can't go, so she really doesn't know what she's in for. I did warn her that DT typically goes three hours. Should be fun.

    Warner finally announcing some horror for Halloween!

    Glad to hear about Dr. Giggles, even if it's not a great movie. Looks like it's time to unload the old Goodtimes disc on ebay.

    If you could only put one (1) BEATLES song on your iPod, which would it be?

    After glancing through the playlist, I'll have to say, "I Am the Walrus." It sounds great on the Love album. Speaking of, I wonder if we'll get any announcements on Beatles on iTunes, hopefully leading to remastered cds?

    Donner Superman 2 SE (merged thread)

    Was this "ruling the world scene" ever in any script or is it just fan wishes?

    Dream Theater - Systematic Chaos in 5.1!

    Ok, I didn't really like the vocal or the keyboards to that song, but I like the other stuff I've heard on Myspace and other places pretty well. I didn't realize they had a new label, and of course I'll buy this on release date.

    Waterworld Director's Cut?

    I would also buy a DC of this, and besides, the current theatrical dvd is severely lacking in video and audio. Even the DTS disc doesn't sound so good, IMO.

    anyone into madonna?

    This was my first thought, but you beat me to it. ;)

    Star Wars discussion from The Bits...

    It's a bit of a shame that the discs with the original cuts are the ones that aren't selling well, but I can't give in. Lucas just half-assed it with those original cuts and I can't support that.

    Apocalypto - Due 5/22/07

    I'm looking forward to renting this one. Never saw it in the theater.

    Spider-man 3 - On Going Developments

    I don't know what Raimi was thinking about the scene, but I know how the audience reacted, and it was with laughter. Like an earlier guy posted, it was almost like they had turned on, or had enough of the movie. It was a bit of a capper for a mostly disappointing flick. This might be the...

    Spider-man 3 - On Going Developments

    I saw it yesterday and agree that some parts were great, some parts, meh. What I just realized a minute ago was that I can't remember Raimi's trademark car cameo. Where was it, because I'm sure it was there somewhere.

    Dream Theater - Systematic Chaos in 5.1!

    Good to hear they're coming to Dallas. I live in Ft. Worth, so the last time I saw DT was co-headlining with Megadeth at Gigantour.

    Dream Theater - Systematic Chaos in 5.1!

    I cannot wait for this. I was introduced through Train of Thought, love Octavarium more, and have enjoyed the last two live dvds. Greatness.
