    The Survivor 9: Vanuatu Discussion Thread

    I noticed that too, but shortly after that scene there was a shot of one of the guys talking directly to the camera, and he had a "mild" Australian accent, not terribly thick, but noticible. He's obviously from the U.S., but maybe he just recently relocated to the States from "down under".

    Where should I cross-over my Atoms?

    I just upgraded my HT to 4 Atoms and a CC-170 with an HSU STF-2 and an Onkyo 601. I was just wondering where I should set my cross-over for the sub at? For the time being I set it for 100 (on the receiver), but I thought I would get some of your opinions as well. Is there a way to tell where you...

    Looking for a nice receiver for around $400, Found two, the Onkyo 601 and Denon 1804.

    Update: I finally got a response from Onkyo saying that CompUSA is infact an authorized dealer.

    Mini-Review: Yamaha HTR-5760 Receiver

    Just trying to clear this issue up Also, does the 5760 have an adjustable crossover for the sub? I was looking at RX-V640 and that was one thing that I noticed it was lacking. Thanks.

    Looking for a nice receiver for around $400, Found two, the Onkyo 601 and Denon 1804.

    Does anyone know if CompUsa is an authorized Onkyo dealer? I would assume that they are but I didn't see them listed on Onkyo's site. I sent them (Onkyo) an e-mail about it a couple of days ago, but haven't heard back yet.

    HSU coupon?

    Quick question for anyone who got this @ CompUSA...How big is the box that it comes in? Will it fit in a compact car (trunk or back seat), or might I have to take it out of the box? Thanks.

    Summer School On DVD June 1

    Thanks for the "heads up". This is easily one of the most quoteable movies of all time. "Can I call my Mom and tell her I won't be home...ever."

    Onkyo SKS-HT510 - is it an upgrade?

    Hey! I was just wondering the same thing! Right now I've got a Kenwood HTiB (HTB-504) although mine is only 2 years old. Would these be an improvement over HTiB's in general?

    What's the deal with New Release pricing???

    I was under the impression that you could always get New Releases at BestBuy, Circuit City, etc. pretty cheap the first week they were released. I don't buy that many DVD's so when I do it's usually of the "Blockbuster" variety (SW, The Matrix movies, Terminator, etc.) and I usually get them on...

    What are the functions of a producer?

    Yes, as I understand it, an Executive Producer is "the money man/woman" only.

    Film Discussion: Movie You Hate, and Things You Would Change To Make You Like Them

    ***SPOILERS*** The one movie that comes to mind that I don't hate but thought could be changed to make it great was The Truman Show . I don't know exactly why, but I was really disappointed with the way this film played out. I think what would've made this film extraordinary would have been...

    Intersecting Stories. Please recommend

    Another movie that I think would qualify is Twenty Bucks . It follows the path of a $20 as it changes hands between people. It's a slightly above averge film, with a one or two particularly great scenes IMO. Oh yeah, Steve Buscemi is in it, I think, if your a fan of his.

    Radio Shack remotes? (Or other options)

    *thread-jack* I saw a mini-review in a PC mag I get for the RadioShack "Kameleon" remote (catalog# 15-2133) that looked interesting, and was wondering if anyone had any experience with them. There is a cool flash demo of it here . The only thing I can initially see as a problem, is the...

    I watched the beggining of the Matix last night in anticipation of the new ones, and I thought about some things that didn't sit well with me. However, this morning I can only remember the main one . What makes Neo "the one"? I thoght it was his ability to manipulate/not be bound by the...

    Two Godfather II plot questions(SPOILERS) (MERGED THREAD)

    In response to #2: I didn't think that Frankie's brother was in danger from Michael. He was there to "shame" Frankie into not being a rat. He didn't want his brother to see him doing something dishonorable. I can't remember what exactly was said, but if you listen to how Michael explains the...
