    Lost season 3 discussion....

    It did feel like a twilight zone. Kinda like a standalone episode strangely detached from the myth-arc of the show.

    Lost season 3 discussion....

    Hmmm.. What does that episode have to do with anything?

    Lost Season 1 ongoing thread (merged)

    Did we know that the plane left from gate 23 before tonight? Also did you notice the dash on Hurley's SUV when it stopped: the odometer was 42 km, the temp was 23 degree celcius. And the speedometer went from 16 to 15 to 8 to 4 as it slowed down. Also the only row number on the plane that...

    Pendragon's WAR OF THE WORLDS film may not actually exist...

    This looks to have the budget of a 1970's Dr. Who episode. There is no way to do this story properly with the home computer CGI effects the trailer has. I wouldn't put any hope into this being a decent film. The website lacks any professionalism and the "news" releases are full of cheesy hype...

    DVD Review HTF REVIEW: Silverado 2-Disc Superbit Gift Set (RECOMMENDED)

    I'd like to see the unmatted "misframed" version someday. Several scenes in this film seem tightly composed for 2.35:1, especially certain dialog scenes, with heads, feet and hands getting clipped...As though they didn't always protect the scope ratio when shooting and that the unmatted...

    Movies with Bad Music Scores

    I love that score. Atmospheric and foreboding. It, along with the production design/special effects to a slightly lesser degree, are the reason I own and watch that movie (and to laugh at the dialog).

    NOTHING impressive about Jurassic Park III

    This sounds like it's becoming a poll, so I'l chime in... I liked it, too. I was never bored, always wondering what was going to happen next, I liked the pteranodons, and the kid wasn't annoying.

    Just built a friend's system; need recommendations for good surround-sound discs.

    I'd have to agree. Lots of subtle environmental effects, in addition to the bombastic directional cannon fire. Plus, when it storms, you get actually cold and wet. :)

    DVD Review *** Official HTF REVIEW & Discussion Thread: Star Wars Trilogy, pt. 1

    I watched and enjoyed ANH very much last night in spite of the audio issues. However I found the switched audio very disconcerting. It made it difficult to enjoy the music. I ended up slouching in my couch so the surrounds weren't as audible, and it allowed me to get back into the movie. I...

    Our Burden Is Light: Or The Case Of The Semi-Existing DVD

    why don't you email the producer/star Denise Coats? Her company's contact info is on this page: http://home.att.net/~lightburden/wsb...act.html-.html According to IMDB, her movie-making burden is light, so maybe she'll respond.

    DVD Review HTF Review: The Black Hole

    Doesn't the Anchor Bay disk have an isolated score track (or am I crazy)? I assume the new release doesn't? Also, is the overture included before the film?

    Pioneer DV-578A

    If this is the case, I might get a 578 to replace my 563. The slow UI on the 563 is endlessly irritating to me.

    Need help IDing a song: "...Scary...Places..."

    There's two versions. I heard the slow, acoustic one on radio and said, "who did a Tears for Fears remake?". I like the original version better.

    DVD-A has 5X the market share of SACD, despite fewer titles

    Here's the link to the report: http://www.riaa.com/news/marketingda...merProfile.pdf By the way, this was a telephone survey of consumers, and therefore relied on consumer knowledge of the technologies. I wonder how many music DVD-Vs were mis-classified as DVD-As. Also interesting from...
