    Any "Midnight Cowboy" 16x9 remaster???

    Did any other MGM DVD feature the trailer for this film? Besides the original release of course. It ain't included on this new release.

    'Wolf Creek' R1 Question...

    The film was slightly cut in the US by a few frames. The Australian and UK versions are uncut, so the unrated R1 DVD I'd imagine is this same version released everywhere else.

    DVD Review HTF REVIEW: The Fly - Collector's Edition

    This is a terrific release, I love the extras on it,always good to see a release thats not filled with the usual fluff pieces you get on the majority of releases. BTW, I thought the foot eating scene shown in the docu at 1.19.15 was pretty damm cool, besides the monkey cat scene.

    Evil Dead II - Book of the Dead COMPARISON SHOTS

    Going from those screenshots if accurate, its not the color that puts me off in the new transfer its the level of DVNR thats been applied. It looks stripped of detail compared to the previous transfer.

    The Aviator DVD thoughts

    The disc is fine however I have one problem with the audio.The dialogue clips at,or near reference level in quite a few scenes, possibly due to Warner using the low bitrate of 384kbps on this title. I'm thinking about getting the R3 edition to see if the DTS track improves on this.

    Where's the BRAM STOKER documentary on laser disc?

    Columbia issued two different releases of the film on Laserdisc,a regular barebones edition and a slightly higher priced one that contained extras. Both were 2 discs and the one with extras had the HBO special you mention that btw,was only in snippets on the Criterion release.Catalog number for...

    any chance of darkman spec ed or color of money ?

    If a Darkman SE ever cameout it'd be without the involvement of Sam Raimi. He had a horrible experiance making it and expressed no interest in revisting it for a DVD when asked in an interview recently.

    Yamaha Reciever won't lock onto DTS tracks!

    The DTS track shows on the front display but flickers because it can't hold lock for anymore than a second at a time.Forcing it into DTS mode doesn't make a difference at all.

    2 versions of Jeepers Creepers?

    The reason it was redone in later pressings as a 2 disc set was because they had a big problem with faulty DVD14's of this title when it was first released. It was very faulty on a number of different makes of players.

    DVD Review HTF REVIEW: Angel Heart

    There is one shot in the sex scene that is shortened by about a split second, mere frames I'd say. Its the shot where you see them both coupled bouncing hard up and down high off bed with blood splattering fiercly onto Rourke's buttocks. Its really no big deal IMO, and wouldn't be missed if you...

    DVD Review HTF REVIEW: Angel Heart

    (That R2 UK Special Edition is actually missing some stuff from the sex scene as well as a couple frames of the murders) I compared the old and new R1 discs and the UK R2 to the unrated Laserdisc, and both R1 discs are the R rated version,and the UK R2 is actually the one thats uncut! But...

    Friday The 13th SEs/Box Set Info Coming on September 19th!?

    Ive read that this set will cost around $100 list,when its app 5 discs using recycled transfers. I think I'll be passing now myself, even though I wanted to see the extras. A rebate for owners of the previous 8 discs might change my mind, but thats never going to happen. My DVD Collection

    Details: Matrix Revolutions (Merged)

    For me personally, saying the film is bad is actually paying it a compliment,lol. Anyway the disc quality was very good, although the sound level was rather muted, no doubt due to the dialog normalization applied. But once turned up to compensate, it did deliver the goods.
