    Darren Aronofsky's sci-fi epic "The Fountain" set to go

    While watching The Fountain again, I noticed that Izzy mentioned that Xibalba is the Mayan underworld where dead souls go to be reborn. Perhaps that can lead us to believe that Present Tom's "soul" is essentially dead, and that Future Tom is actually the journey of Present Tom's soul in finding...

    Double dipping on CDs due to retailer-specific exclusive tracks?!

    For iTunes fans, they've got a video exclusive for those who pre-order the new Tenacious D album (I guess it's more like the soundtrack to Pick of Destiny). You get to see the first half of the video for free, and it cracked me up. I gave in, guess I'm a sucker, oh well. As a rule though, I'm...

    Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest 12-5, 2 versions

    Exactly. I remember paying like $15 for Star Wars III, and that was two discs. The only difference now is that your $15 will only get you one disc, and you have to pay a lot more if you want the 2nd

    Pink Floyd "Pulse"

    I could imagine, but then I'd feel dirty. Both the loss in picture quantity and quality is not worth the tradeoff to me.

    Alias Season 5 ongoing thread

    I wish I could share you guys' enthusiasm. I used to love this show, but it's simply gotten way too cliched and ridiculous. I still don't think Vaughn is really dead, as no one ever really dies on this show. If he wasn't behind everything, it would be Irina. I still wouldn't be surprised to see...

    DD-EX & DTS-ES encoded movies listing

    All the Star Wars movies are Dolby Digital EX. It's also listed on the back of the Episode III DVD. That said, I don't think it's flagged correctly, because I have to set it manually.

    DVD Review HTF REVIEW: The Polar Express - Two Disc Widescreen Edition (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED).

    I might check this out. It does look a little bit creepy. This one shot gave me the shivers when watching the trailer. Brains...BRAINS!!!

    2005 War of the Worlds 11/22

    Love this movie. There's one thing that kinda bugged me though the first time I watched it on DVD. I hardly ever notice "nitpicky" things, but the first guy who gets wasted by the tripod is using a video camera. I thought the EMP destroyed all the electronics in the area?

    *** Official *** Xbox 360 REVIEW Thread

    Those pics are on an X1??? Holy cow! I figured you had a 720p projector at least. At least now I know that my 4805 should be able to pull off a nice image!

    Wow! The difference is amazing!

    DVD Review HTF REVIEW: The Interpreter (RECOMMENDED)

    Saw this in the dollar theater and it really didn't do much for me. But that cover art is absolutely hilarious!

    Universal Studios Is The Pits

    Word on the street is that Universal is distributing House for some reason. Anyway, apparently it's going to be released in NON-anamorphic widescreen. WTF? House is a brand new show, what on earth are they thinking?

    InFocus 4805 TVAuthority Q&A

    Dan, you can just point the signal at the wall. It mentions that in the instruction manual I believe. The signal just seems to bounce off the wall and back to the projector, no problem. Enjoy the projector, I love mine!

    BATMAN (1989) & sequels (STREET DATE: Oct. 18, 2005)

    I remember liking Batman Forever when I caught it in theaters. Of course, that was a long time ago. But I believe I'll pick up Batman Begins, Batman, and Batman Forever. Didn't care much for Returns and hated B&R. At least this way I've got a Batman flick from every director.

    InFocus 4805 TVAuthority Q&A

    Unless of course you buy a black screen, but those are relatively new and quite pricey (set you back a few thousand bucks). Advantage though is you can have ambient light and you'll still get an amazing image.

    Star Trek Nemesis SCE

    It's as simple as this. If it's an extended cut, I'll buy. If it's just the theatrical version, I'll pass as I never want to witness that atrocity again.

    BATMAN (1989) & sequels (STREET DATE: Oct. 18, 2005)

    I really hope these will be available separately as well. I really don't want "Batman and Robin" in my collection (shudder).

    InFocus 4805 TVAuthority Q&A

    May it rest in peace. How often did you clean the filter and such? That can have an impact on bulb life, as well as how often you turn it on and off. So, the big question is...are you replacing the bulb? Or are you gonna upgrade? ;)

    Alternative SW cover art...

    Okay, now, what's the best way to print this thing out. For example, what size paper, and how should I adjust my settings? Never felt the need to do this until now, that thing is beautiful.

    InFocus 4805 TVAuthority Q&A

    Sorry about that :b Ignorance can seriously be bliss sometimes. I don't think that the older firmware will help. I haven't upgraded mine because of the issues with it, and it still has the problem. Also, if you have the newer firmware, I'm not sure it's possible to go back to an earlier...

    InFocus 4805 TVAuthority Q&A

    Thanks Travis, but I really don't think that that solution would offer the kind of delay that I would need. Fortunately, most receivers now have an audio delay option for this kind of situation. Unfortunately, mine's a few months shy of those models. I decided to just feed the 4805 a...

    24 Season One: Some afterthoughts

    Isn't season one awesome? =) I have yet to see Season 4, which I hear is amazing. I always wait for the DVDs. So, I'd rank 'em... Season 1 Season 3 Season 2 I don't know why people generally disliked Season 3. I thought it was very good.

    InFocus 4805 TVAuthority Q&A

    Doh. I just got my 4805 recently and absolutely love it. However, noticed something recently that bugs. Video delay! It's very slight, but it's there. Voices always seem to come just barely before the lips, just barely, it's enough to annoy someone like me. I wonder if the delay could be...

    Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith (2005)

    Okay, just got back around 3:30. Oh man, what an experience that was. I couldn't believe how much emotion I felt in this one. Lucas can be a dark mofo when he wants to be. I was surprised by Dooku's death. I knew Anakin was gonna kill him, but not like that. But I also loved how he had regret...

    The Eternal Angelriffic Thread (Merged)

    Avoid the fox store. I bought the angel theme off there for a buck and it's only 64k. Sounds pretty poor. What a rip! I would've gotten it off iTunes, but I can't find it on there...
