    Official 13th Annual HTF October Scary Movie Challenge 2012

    Hey everybody. Hope you're all enjoying the challenge. I've been ever so crazy, as always turns out in October. But this year has lifted to new heights of insanity. Just moved into my new apartment over the weekend and worked my tail off getting it ready for my son to come up for the first time...

    Michael - that doc sounds fantastic. I'm in NYC, so I'll have to see where it's playing. I'm sure it's gotta be here somewhere. I didn't even know about it. Thanks for mentioning it.

    Official 13th Annual HTF October Scary Movie Challenge 2012

    Started off my challenge with a pair of episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and one episode of The Twilight Zone. I've never watched Buffy before and just began last month. I started season 4 today. Im loving the series. Started off a bit slow for me, but the characters and dialogue are simply...

    Michael - thanks for letting us know about V/H/S being on HD Net Movies next week. Looking forward to checking it out. Also - love that your child is enjoying Scooby so much. My son's favorite movie from the time he was 1.5-3 was Nightmare Before X-Mas. He also loved Corpse Bride. I feel like...

    Hey John - I didn't see my name on your list in the opening post of the thread. I'll be doing the challenge up til the 28th, after which I'm away. Hoping to get to the 31 again this year, but we'll see. My placeholder is on the first page and that's where I'll be updating my list, obviously. I...

    Movies 3. The Shiver of the Vampire - Another Jean Rollin. Gotta say I love this guy's style and vibe. Cheesy effects on a shoe string budget, but there is an excellent use of location. Lots of fine looking gals. Fun, funny side characters. Definitely worth a view, and on Netflix Instant. 4. The...

    Hey Guys! Late to the party here. This year is going to be very tough for me. I have a huge road trip that I'm going on. Leaving Sunday. So I won't be able to watch much of anything. Though I'm passing through LA, so I'm hoping to catch a few classic horror flicks on the big screen. We'll see...

    Apple iPad 2 buyers and owner's thread

    I'm sold on the wood cover. So sweet! great design. Gorgeous. Very impressive. Of course I'm gonna have to wait until my Smart Cover blows up or something. Who wants to see if they can eat it so I can convince my wife for the need of shelling out another $69? Seriously we could do a Smart Cover...

    Apple iPad 2 buyers and owner's thread

    I honestly don't think there's any chance of another iPad release until next year. There simply isn't a need or reason. iPad 2 will sell like mad during the holiday season, and then in March 2012 we'll see what the iPad 3 has in store for us. As Ron mentioned, iPad 2 wasn't a big enough upgrade...

    Apple iPad 2 buyers and owner's thread

    I ended up upgrading from the 32 to the 64. I spoke with the manager of my local Apple store and she did me a real solid - she emailed me when they got more stock in and put one aside for me! So sweet. The 32 just wasn't enough space for me. And to answer the question about NYC stores getting...

    Stylus for the iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch

    Thanks guys. Given this information, I'm going to stick with the Targus and just get used to it. I'm sure it's more a matter of not being used to sketching on a touch screen, than a deficiency with the stylus. Of course, I'm also going to have to get used to the name, Targus. I keep wanting to...

    Apple iPad 2 buyers and owner's thread

    Dave - have you used the Targus or the Pogo? I've tried both. Like the Targus WAY better. But I'm still curious if the boxwave has better overall control - in other words, when I'm sketching, I want to be able to do very fine detail and with the Pogo it's impossible and the Targus, while better...

    Apple iPad 2 buyers and owner's thread

    I'll add that while the still pictures from the iPad2 are crap, the video is gorgeous if lit properly. I shot some footage yesterday and today outdoors and it came out stunning. Nelson - thanks for the stylus thread. Still not sure where I'm going to get my hands on a box wave, but I'll be...

    Apple iPad 2 buyers and owner's thread

    Thanks guys. I think the best thing for me to do is to try both the targus and boxwave and see what works better for me. Best buy doesn't carry the box wave and neither does the apple store, so I'll try pc Richards and sons tomorrow. I'll let you know which I prefer when I get to try them for a...

    Apple iPad 2 buyers and owner's thread

    Nelson, I've heard the capacitive styra from box wave was the stylus to beat these days. Have you used it? Right now I have the pogo from the apple store, but I don't love it. You really need to dig in with pressure and I feel that sketching for a few hours would result in some serious wrist...

    Apple iPad 2 buyers and owner's thread

    I didn't go for the iPad1 because I really wanted the cameras and figured it would be coming with gen 2. And so yesterday, I bought my first of what I presume to be many iPads, as further generations come out. I am so in love! I read tons of books (I'm an author), draw all the time, write...

    Blu-ray Review HTF BLU-RAY REVIEW: The Twilight Zone Season 1 Blu-ray

    Thanks everybody. Sounds like I need to hold off and just get season 2 for now. Hopefully this will get cleared up and I can purchase season 1 in the future. Too bad. Dying to see the unaired pilot! Cheers, Jason

    Blu-ray Review HTF BLU-RAY REVIEW: The Twilight Zone Season 1 Blu-ray

    Okay - I'm pretty new to this Season 1 issue - what exactly is going on and is it on all sets or just a few people having the issue? Also - has the issue been resolved (has there been a new pressing of discs?) I really want to get both seasons but don't want defective product. Sorry if...

    Hey All! Great year for me. I ended up with 16 more films than my previous best. Saw some wonderful new films. Still trying to decide upon favorites/worst new flicks watched. Will have to get back on that. I ended up with 44 new movie screenings. Here is my final list. Total this year...

    Once again - I've been pulled away for a few days. These reviews are really gonna have to be short this time! 61. Sisters 3/5 - Not my favorite DePalma flick. Pretty good. Worth a view. 62. The Evil Dead 4.5/5 - Excellent horror/comedy with great feel throughout. Totally low budget...

    Here we go the past few days worth of flicks. 48. The Wolf Man (original of course) 5/5 - Do I really have to say anything? So badass. 49. Shock Waves 3/5 - Really quite good. Hitler has his occult team create a group of super soldiers that are led by Peter Cushing (who created them)...

    Back with more: 39. The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari 5/5 - LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this film. Just brilliant from the story to the acting to the direction to the production design. There is simply no reason to miss this. 40. KIller Klowns From Outer Space 3.5/5 - Read the title. You either want to...

    Back with some more quickies! 33. The Thing 4/5 - Back with a classic! Just LOVE the practical effects here. But I've said it before (and been flamed like mad!) - I still think The Thing From Another World is the better and more enjoyable film. Both are fabulous and make amazing companion...

    Travis - Can't wait to watch House of a Thousand Corpses again. I actually love all the crazy insanity and cartoony characters. Agreed that Devil's is WAY better - a tighter, excellently directed film that does show so much promise. Much like you, I still have faith in Zombie and look forward to...
