    Donner Superman 2 SE (merged thread)

    this always confused me about the diner guy-if he turned back time-then the guy at the diner never put the hurt on old supes..right? so when he walks in and fights the guy and says 'I've been working out"-it seems the people in the diner saw him before-hence the original fight took place and...

    B&K Ref. 50 & 200.7

    color is Silver, Mint condition, original owner, boxes, manuals. Asking $2700 plus shipping for both. Also FYI these were unopened for the first year or so-until I moved into my home-and now I use them only to watch DVD movies maybe once a week with them-so usage has been minimal at best. Tim

    Used B&K AVR-5/307 or new Denon 3805?

    I am currently using Reference 50 with 200.7 amp for my main movie watching-I also owned the denon 3805 (which I recently sold to a friend) -honestly I like denon stuff-alot..but the B&K wins hands down-maybe in my example its probably not a fair fight-buts all I have to go on. But the 3805 was...

    Mission: Impossible III on HD DVD and Blu-ray on October 30th

    How much is everyone paying for this disc-can it be found cheaper than $30? I only ask because I am new to HD DVD (player on order) so I have recently been checkingout different sites for discs- but this one seems to be high-maybe because its a 2-disc set? thanks Tim
