    [I]The Princess and the Pirate[/I] due May 17

    This nearly slipped past me. My favorite Bob Hope farce can be had for less than $10 - in technicolor! I really hope this is in good shape.

    Planet of the Apes: The Evolution Box Set - finally anamorphic??

    Several places have this listed as a "new release". I can't seem to find out if it is truly new, that is finally anamorphic or merely a price drop. I'm suspecting price drop althought some places are listing as anamorphic. You would think at this stage of the game they could at least get that...

    TIVO picture quality?

    Considering replacing VCR as recording (timeshifting) device. How would you rate Tivo's best record quality against the best quality of a standard VCR? Better? Much better? About the same? I also wonder about PQ of various PVR units. I've heard it said that Replay is better than Tivo...

    Any word on revisiting the Planet of the Apes set?

    I know there is a new Planet of the Apes SE which boasts a new anamorphic transfer. I hate to buy it and then have an anamorphic set announced.

    Blaze - aspect ratio?

    This movie is released tommrrow and I cannot find any info on the AR of the movie. IMdB is a blank. For that matter, most places don't have the AR of the dvd either. :frowning: DVD Empire shows 1.85:1 (for the dvd) but I don't know how accurate they are. Any info?

    More Abott and Costello

    The Digital Bits is reporting that The Best of Bud Abbott and Lou Costello: Volume 2 will arrive 5/4. I have to admit that is much faster than I expected. :)

    "The Gods Must be Crazy" available for preorder at Amazon

    Title says it all. Amazon lists release date as 3 Feb. MSRP $29.99, Amazon price $20.97. Details are sparse ...to say the least. They don't even list studio yet. Anyone know who owns this property?

    Stagecoach SE?

    I seem to recall seeing someone recommend in one of the "Best Westerns" threads that the person hold off on the purchase of this title because a SE was "in the works". Now I can't find the thread so I have to ask... Is this a fact or merely wishful thinking? Thanks.

    Oar, Oar, Oar

    Everyone uses this term constantly but is there common agreement on what it means? Can anyone point to an authoritative source where the definition of OAR is written? Thanks.

    negative ratio vs. intended ratio?

    Talk about Giant got me curious about George Stephens and his movie Shane. When Shane was released I was assured (not here) that 1.33:1 was the correct and intended ratio. That was also what IMDB indicated although I would have sworn I recalled it in widescreen. Now it appears IMDB has modified...

    Best Buy has an online deal where they will send you a $10 digital certificate if you preorder Harry Potter for $20. Unfortunately, no instore pickup on preorders and shipping is a grotesque $4. :frowning: I expect Potter to be a major loss leader but doubt they will beat $14 in the store...

    Players with user upgradable firmware?

    I just cannot understand why manufactures have not made this a standard feature. There have been a few... I read about one nuon enhanced player that allowed the buyer to download and install updated firmware. Naturally, nuon was a flop and I suppose the player was also. I would guess that the...

    Give me your opinion of "The Searchers" and "Red River"

    I enjoyed these films greatly right up till the end where, in my opinion, both were ruined by stupid endings. I grew up in the 60s when it seemed that fully half of all TV shows and movies were westerns. I admit that I see most westerns as light entertainment or as some would say nowdays...
