    SIRIUSXM: Still Lazy After All These Years

    I got the free trial for SiriusFM on my new car and decided to subscribe. Several channels (Like the NPR channel) sound terrible but my favorite channel -- the Broadway channel 72 -- sounds very good. It's a world away from my old alternatives which were AM and FM radio. Where I live the radio...

    Ghostbusters (2016)

    My family and I saw the movie today and loved it. It had the same mix of just scary enough ghosts, rude and funny humor and innocent sweetness that I remember the original having when I first saw it back in the 80's. It hit on the same story beats as the original without being a direct copy. And...

    Airport: The Complete Collection (Blu-Ray) Available for Preorder

    I too saw Airport 75 on a double bill with Earthquake but it was at the local drive-in theater. My parents took our family when I was 10 years old and I was a little grumpy we couldn't see Earthquake in Sensurround but the drive-in was the only game in town in those days. Anyway Airport '75 was...

    Blu-ray Review Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan Director's Cut Blu-Ray Review

    Anyone else having their order delayed by Amazon? The customer service person I emailed said they ran out of stock but I wonder if they could be waiting for a shipment of corrected disks?

    Weekly RoundUp 4-12-2016

    The Best Buy near me still has lots of media. In fact today they still had a few Force Awakens steelbooks on the big display in the front of the store.

    When I pre-ordered "Game of Thrones" Target promised to cover any price drop the way Amazon does.

    Could the original, unaltered STAR WARS be on its way to Blu-ray?

    I first saw Star Wars in 1977, when I was 11 years old. I remember standing in line with my best friend being nervous about whether I would like the movie or not. Maybe that furry monster guy would be too scary. Then we went in and sat down and that spaceship roared over our heads and the droids...

    The Good Dinosaur

    Took the kids to see it today. Only us and another family ( about 8 people?) in the 2 pm 3-D showing. I have enjoyed all of Pixar's movies but this is the first Pixar film that I got bored by. My kids ( ages 9 and 10) loved it though.

    Win an Onkyo TX-NR1030 9.2 channel Dolby Atmos AV Receiver

    I always have wanted the latest and greatest but budget and space constraints has me capped at 5.1 so it would be nice to win this receiver and then figure out the space constraints later. An investment in the future.

    3D BIG HERO 6

    I received my copy the other day. No DVD, digital copy or Disney reward points. It's nice to have a 3D copy though.

    Blu-ray Review Breaking Away Blu-ray Review

    I've lived in California my whole life and have never been anywhere near Indiana but this has always been one of my favorite movies since I saw it in high school all those years ago. I even loved the TV series. I'm looking forward to the blu-ray arriving in the mail. I haven't seen it in a long...

    Frozen 3D Bungle?!

    Where I live in Sonoma County there's usually only one 3-D showing a day in the evening. I think this is driven by families. Parents don't want to pay a premium five dollars extra per movie (For a family of four this ends up costing $20 extra per movie) so their kids can sit around and fiddle...

    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)

    Well I like Wonder Woman and I hate that costume too. Looks like she walked in off 300. Stupid Zack Snyder.

    Will We Ever See 1776 on Blu-ray? (See Post #286 for the latest info from Sony)

    So, since a Blu-ray is not coming out anytime soon, and I can't make to Santa Monica next week I was planning on spinning the ol' DVD. But then I saw that there is an HD version on itunes/Apple TV. Would it be worth it to spring the 13 bucks for that? Does anybody know if the HD streaming...

    Just finished seeing it. Awesome. Can't imagine seeing it in 2-D.

    3D Blu-ray Review The LEGO Movie: Everything Is Awesome Edition 3D Blu-ray Review

    I've seen the movie in 3D and 2D and the 3D is much preferred. All the swirling legos flying through the air lose all their "pop!" in 2D. On another topic can anyone tell me was the giant Emmet head is about? It is just a big vacu-formed plastic decoration or does it serve a purpose such as...

    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)

    Nestor Carbonell as Bat-Manuel in a Tick movie! There's something I'd pay money for. Not this Batman/Superman "Dark Knight Returns" stuff.

    Star Wars Ep. VII Megathread: The Force Awakens

    I beg to differ about "Shattered Glass". He whined all through that movie just like in Star Wars.

    When you were young, which films did your whole school or class went to see?

    My Junior High went to see 1776 once. I didn't pay much attention to it at the time but several years later i checked the Broadway Cast Album out of the library and fell in love with it.

    Before DVD's, where would you watch films in OAR?

    In high school I used to go to the UC Theater in Berkeley CA all the time. I still remember spending all day at their Star Trek marathon. I try to recreate it on home video but it's not the same.

    Frozen 3D Bungle?!

    I think Disney has just figured out that Frozen does't need to be in 3D to make lots of money. The 2D version is still playing all over the place in my town while the 3D version is gone. And word of mouth momentum is still building judging by facebook posts I've seen. Why worry about 3D when the...
