    Hot Dogs & Coney Island (Chili) Dogs

    I'm jealous. :) I've lived in Northern California for 30 years. The dog situation here really stinks. My faves are from these two places: http://www.theoriginalhotdogshop.com/ And: https://www.tedshotdogs.com/ I'll keep the Coney Island dogs in MI on my radar though. Haven't been there...

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Mad Max Fury Road - 3D -- in Blu-ray

    I had to know, so I got both versions. The bonus content is the same. But the DVD edition has the movie on 1 disc, and the bonus features on the other. The Blu-ray has everything on one disc. The DVD that's included with the BD version, only has the movie DVD disc. So if someone got the BD...

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Mad Max Fury Road - 3D -- in Blu-ray

    Does anyone know? At Best Buy, there is a DVD version that seems to have an exclusive bonus content disc (2 DVDs). I couldn't find a picture of it on the internet or anywhere. There is a sticker that says that on the shrinkwrap. They also have the BD version, but since that version has a BD...

    Just curious. I got one used, and it was advertised as having all the original materials ... but there's no booklet inside. Doesn't seem right to me. thanks !!

    Title? Japanese science fiction movie a lot like E.T.

    Any suggestions for how to search for this on Netflix or Google would be appreciated too. I checked all the foreign sci fi on Netflix and didn't see it. And I tried to search for "Japanese science fiction like E.T." on Google, and got a lot of E.T. references, but not the one I'm looking for...

    Title? Japanese science fiction movie a lot like E.T.

    No ... It's already out on DVD. Man, I can't believe I'm having so much trouble finding out what this is. I suppose I can ask the person I got it for, or I can try and search my past purchases at Amazon (which is where I probably bought it), or I can search my prior Netflix rentals (which is...

    Title? Japanese science fiction movie a lot like E.T.

    I've seen this in the past, and even bought a copy for a friend, but for the life of me, I can't remember the title.   Sort of like a family/children's movie that adults can enjoy too.   Thanks !

    Toy Story 1 & 2, which is the "best" version?

    Audio and video quality, extras, etc. My kids are finally old enough to watch this, and somehow I only ended up with this 1 disc version of TS2: Amazon.com: Toy Story 2: Tim Allen, Jodi Benson, Joan Cusack, R. Lee Ermey, Kelsey Grammer, Tom Hanks, Estelle Harris, Wayne Knight, John...

    Guns 'N' Roses Chinese Democracy Nov 23 & a free Dr Pepper

    " ... masterpiece ..." *That* is still yet to be determined. I think it's cheesy that they only give a 24 hr window to apply for the coupon. Hopefully I can remember!

    Mirage OM Design Series Floorstanding Loudspeaker sale

    Seems like a good deal. Maybe they are clearing them out because a new line is coming. Personally, I'd call Vanns and find out why they are selling them so cheap. Vanns is a reputable place, so it's not like it's a bait and switch, or "white van speakers" or anything. (I have the prev generation...

    District B13 - quick review

    Michael- Well ... I consider myself more of a film nut than most people, and, a) I do not remember this hitting the theaters, and, b) when I bounce the title off my other sci fi friends, they don't know what I'm talking about. But maybe in my brain when I made that statement, is maybe the...

    District B13 - quick review

    I just posted the following in the HD section, but maybe a different set of people would see it here. Anyone watch this? I thought I saw a big plot hole, but I wasn't sure. SPOILER ALERT: OK, so the gov't sends a bomb into District B13. Then they send in supercop to make sure it's where...

    District B13 Blu-Ray

    Anyone watch this? I thought I saw a big plot hole, but I wasn't sure. SPOILER ALERT: OK, so the gov't sends a bomb into District B13. Then they send in supercop to make sure it's where it's supposed to be, and then enter a code to detonate it (which he thinks is to disarm it). Huh...

    Big problem with plasma, any suggestions?

    Joe- Send you kid over my place in about a year. I want an excuse to get a new display then. Seriously, I feel for you, but look it as an opportunity to upgrade. I have 2.5 year old twins, and we are trying to sensitize them to not play near the plasma. We'll see if it works or not. Well...

    AV123 MFW-15 vs SVS PB13 Ultra

    The problem is that even as the US dollar weakens, because the Chinese yuan is artificially fixed to it, it weakens as well, even though it shouldn't. So cheap Chinese products stay cheap even though they should be getting more expensive as other products from other countries do.
