    Sean, Seems like a good explanation.. I sent the info the FBI website anyway.. You never know. Deja.com is down right now, but I'm still thinking about the seven days thing. Maybe this kid just got lucky and ran with it. Either way he will get a rude awakening soon I'm sure. I mean no one...

    I had actually never seen Gandhi until I rented the DVD the other day. All I can say is WOW, they don't make movies like this anymore. They don't make men like Gandhi anymore, or perhaps he was more than a mere mortal. What a wonderful film. A very nice DVD with a fantastic transfer, that...

    Whos getting Super Speedway?

    The original Super Speedway DVD has an aspect ratio of 1.33 correct? Is the difference between 1.33 and 1.44 acceptable because it's a smaller percentage than 1.33 to 1.78? What if they cropped it to 1.55 would that have been better or worse than 1.33? What's the point of all of this? Point...

    Question on Subtitles

    DonaldB, That's good to know about the Malata. I've been considering either the Malata or the Panny RP91 for it's scaling capabilities. I didn't know you could move the image up and down like that, that's a bonus point for Malata. ------------------ Mitsubishi 55807 Toshiba 5109 Yamaha...

    Question on Subtitles

    Carl, Ok, that makes sense that it's controlled by the encoding. Do you know of any players that allow you to move them up and down? ------------------ Mitsubishi 55807 Toshiba 5109 Yamaha RX-V496 DVD Collection

    Question on Subtitles

    Matt, I'm referring to player generated titles, not burned in subtitles. Like I've stated in my original post. I've seen two different kinds, an example of in frame player generated subtitle is on the Sound of Music DVD. DonaldB, Don't knock it till you try it Definately check out the link...

    Question on Subtitles

    I'm not sure if this is the right forum for this but here it goes. In the last couple of months I've been using mattes for my TV and they are wonderful! Except for movies with Subtitles. Crouching Tiger is a good example of a movie where subtitles are in the letter box area so I can't see them...

    2001: A Space Odyssey -- I don't get it *spoilers*

    It helps if you've read the book too. I read the book long before watching the movie. If I hadn't read the book, I probably would have never understood most of the concepts. ------------------ Mitsubishi 55807 Toshiba 5109 Yamaha RX-V496 DVD Collection

    Anyone buy Batman yet?

    Just watched the movie for the first time. My two word review: Ridiculously Sublime! Fun Movie, very funny in a different way than when I enjoyed the series as a kid. Great transfer! My only complaint is, where is Batgirl??? Good stuff, will have to check out the commentary at a later time...

    Super Speedway: The Mach II SE-Better?

    Aren't all Imax films 1.33? I have the Michael Jordan to the MAX DVD and it's anamorhic and looks pretty good to me. Also isn't there a HDTV demo loop of Super Speedway at 16X9? Or am I thinking of something else? ------------------ Mitsubishi 55807 Toshiba 5109 Yamaha RX-V496 DVD...

    Vetoed by wife on Willy Wonka

    My girlfriend loves and wants WW on DVD. I promised her that I would buy Willy Wonka when it was re-released!!! Needless to say, I haven't said anything about the re-release being fullscreen because I don't want to buy it period and I won't. I'm still crossing my fingers hoping an anamorphic...

    Josie and the Pussycats...Any Good?

    I just watched this last night and thought it was awful. I appreciated the satirical point of view but most of the time it just didn't work or wasn't very funny. The only bright spot for me was Parker Posey, oh and the Metallica concert thing ------------------ Mitsubishi 55807 Toshiba...

    DVD Shootout #2 Up At Secrets

    James, I think what your looking for are the detailed individual reviews that include video and audio response tests. I asked about this at AVS and Stacey's reply was it is coming, didn't say when though :) ------------------ Mitsubishi 55807 Toshiba 5109 Yamaha RX-V496 DVD Collection

    Amazon.com Removed Willy Wonka Reviews

    The reviews are for the product right? The DVD itself is what people are reviewing, which includes the transfer, sound and extras. If I was buying a product I would want to know these things, not just what people thought of the movie. If I wanted a strictly movie rating I'd go to IMDB or read...

    Has anyone here seen "Selena"?

    Selena is a very good movie, don't let the fact that J-Lo is in it sway you. She is actually very good in it as is the rest of the cast, especially Edward James Olmos. A "Heartbreaking film" is a good description as stated by John. After my first viewing, I couldn't stop thinking about...

    Why couldn't this movie be made, instead of Final Fantasy or Dungeons & Dragons?

    I've played FFVII, that's about it. Not really into turn based rpg's. What's makes WarCraft/Diablo different from the other games you mentioned? It's not like any of those video games have such detailed storylines that they instantly translate into a good movie. There are tons of games which...
