    The reduction of my optical disc collection has started today!

    Interesting read. I totally understand the impulse to purge and keep the digital disc collection on the shelf tidy and essential. When I made the step towards blu-ray in 2008 I had a collection of around 900 dvd's. As soon as I got my first 1080p plasma it was clear that upgrading from dvd to...

    Most Disappointing Transfer ?

    Die Hard on blu-ray stomps all over the Five Star dvd release. Way more detail and colour fidelity while the added resolution makes sure this movie finally has a pleasing movie like image in your home theater; on my calibrated full hd 1080p 46" plasma at least!

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ The French Connection -- in Blu-ray

    This movie has long been one of my favorites, and when the Five Star Collection dvd was released in 2001 I was hugely impressed and very happy with the presentation of the movie. Having lived with the European blu-ray for the last 2 months I can say it's been hard to take this new director...

    Flashpoint ever to be re-released anamorphic?

    If you have a region free dvd player you may order the Australian dvd version of Flashpoint. It is an anamorphic 1.78:1 transfer and of excellent quality. The audio is basic clear mono and adequate, no extras and no subtitles. You can order it from Devoted DVD (that's where mine came from)...

    Glengarry Glen Ross - DVD 3/02

    The Reservoir Dogs 10th Anniversary SE (also Artisan) has the same setup in regards to extra features: the fullscreen disc 2 has different extras and commentaries than the widescreen disc 1 (like Reservoir Dogs the DTS track will only be on the widescreen disc I bet). I think it makes a lot of...

    Pulp Fiction/Jackie Brown-Sept 3?

    Did anyone else get their copy of DON'T LOOK NOW?

    Got my copy from a Canadian e-tailer (so it has the bilingual cover). Picture is sweet (on par with a Paramount transfer like The Conversation, but not quite the stellar quality of Marathon Man for example) but more important is the mono sound which is clear as a bell: no distortions, shrill...

    Trailers with Punch

    Although I wasn't a great fan of the movie, the trailer for BUFFALO 66 is amazing. It's on the dvd and although I watched it after the movie I guess you could watch it safely beforehand.

    Warner Bros. - How about Night Moves on DVD?

    Oh yes, this I absolutely need to have on dvd. As the other posters, being a fan of The French Connection and The Conversation this is surely part 3 of a most excellent Gene Hackman trilogy (oops, I left out The Poseidon Adventure :D )

    Am I the only person who thinks AI is a lousy transfer?

    I concur with Max Leung: having your TV properly calibrated does wonders for the grain control with dvd images. And on my setup I think A.I. is a stellar transfer of a very original looking movie. Grain is often supposed to be there (I like 70's movies so there you go) but like many in this...
