    Stan Winston R.I.P.

    I met Mr. Winston on three occasions, the last time being about a year ago when he and his wife had checked into the hotel that I work for. I can truly say he was an extremely nice person and a true gentleman. His work dates back as far as the t.v. mini-series Roots and The Autobiography of...

    *** Official SPEED RACER Discussion Thread

    Chuck, I do apologize for my delayed response, but time hasn't been in my favor for the past few days. I will try my best to respond to your post over the weekend. I do have my reasons for not liking Speed Racer and I look forward to sharing them.

    *** Official SPEED RACER Discussion Thread

    I'm curious, why do you feel like you have to defend the movie against anyone who hasn't seen it, but doesn't think it is a good movie. For many people the trailers for Speed Racer just didn't win them over, why is that such a hard concept for many on this forum to understand. Chuck, what...

    DVD Review HTF DVD REVIEW: Rambo: 2-Disc Special Edition

    Thanks for the review Matt. I'm just curious, why do so many of you on this forum use this latest Rambo film to put down Rambo 2 and 3. Rambo 2 was the most successful film of the franchise and for a good reason, it's a damn good action flick. Rambo 2 is the film that made the character the...

    HTF BluRay Review: The Golden Compass

    Good Review Sam, very informative, thank you very much. I thought Sam's review might prompt me to give this film a second chance, but I'll be skipping the Golden Compass altogether. I saw this film in the theaters and found it to be jumbled mess and Sam's review only re-confirmed my feelings...

    WHV Press Release: Fastlane: The Complete Series

    Hi Ron, Please correct if I'm wrong, but the Suggested Retail Price, isn't necessarily the price that this box set will be sold at? I thought this series was really fun and I wouldn't mind owning it, but not at $60.00 dollars. I'm hoping this series will be sold at somewhere around $30.00...

    Most disappointing abandoned dvd series

    I honestly don't know if this show has been abandoned or not, but I haven't anything about "The Practice" since volume one. And what of the fate of "Boston Public"???

    *** Official SAW IV Discussion Thread

    I don't know if this has ever been mentioned before, but I think what will happen , is that movie #6 will tie everything together. Saw VI will be the final piece of the puzzle, henceforth the name Jigsaw Puzzle. I think each film is a but a piece to a large cinematic puzzle. Of course, that is...

    *** Official THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES BY THE COWARD ROBERT FORD Discussion

    It's way past October 5 and this film still seems to be in a limited release status. I live in the Los Angeles area and this film is still in only a handful of theaters. Does anyone know if this film will distributed to more theaters in the upcoming weeks?

    WHV Press Release: Blade Runner: The Final Cut (DVD, HD-DVD, Blu-Ray)

    Yeah, I agree Bryan. I don't need all those extra little toys, but the work print sounds to damn tempting to ignore. Oh well, I guess I'll be spending about $80.00 bucks around Christmas time. I wonder if some stores will have a reserve list for the limited edition 5-disc set. Creating these...

    ISIS Coming!!!!!

    Ages 16 and 13, therein lies your problem Rick. Isis as a show is really intended for ages 10 and below. Actually, I'd go as far as to say even between ages 4 to 9. The show debuted in 1975 and I was 4 going 5 years old, and I loved the show. But by the time I was 13, I had already been...

    ISIS Coming!!!!!

    Stop you're killing me, Tuesday can't get here fast enough . I too will be at the Comic-Con next week. David, I hope all those people you mentioned will not be showing up on Thursday, because I won't be in San Diego until Friday. I remember attending the Filmation Panel back at Comic-Con...

    ISIS Coming!!!!!

    Hey David Levine, Thanks for the information. I am so happy this series has finally been officially released, now I can put away my bootleg copies. I have Jason of Star Command, Space Academy, and Ark II, but Isis and Shazam are the two live action Filmation series I have always wanted the most...

    WHV Press Release: Troy: Director's Cut (DVD, HD-DVD, Blu-Ray)

    I will more than likely buy the director's cut. I always got a kick out of Troy and wasn't as hard on the film as other forum members. I liked Pitt's performance as Achilles, as I have mentioned before, I would have loved to have seen Anakin Skywalker portrayed in the same manner. By the...

    Fantastic Four 2 (June 15, 2007 release)

    I'm staying very optimistic about this movie. The most recent trailer looks very interesting. Considering how disappointing Spider-Man 3 was, I wouldn't be surprised if Rise of the Silver Surfer turns out to be the best Marvel Film of 2007. Stranger things have happened. I haven't completely...

    Here he come, here comes SPEED RACER...he's a demon on wheels.

    Tony I agree, the car looks spot on with very little changes from it's animated counterpart. The Mach-5 unlike the Batmobile isn't open for wide interpretations and the designers of the movie Mach-5 seem to realize that. I know the animation is dated, but I don't think Speed Racer's world was...

    Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End

    Considering how many kids like Pirates of the Caribbean, I think ultimately it's going to be the film's length that will hurt "At Worlds End". Like the "Matrix Reloaded", I think "Dead Man's Chest" cruised on borrowed credit from it's predecessor, "At World's End" won't have that luxury...

    Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End

    Yeah, I most definitely agree. Peter Jackson's King Kong is a perfect example of good material and good pacing, although something tells me I'm probably alone in that opinion. Oh well.

    Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End

    Good review by James B., but I really hate that "there's a little Han Solo in this Luke Skywalker" comment. Why does everyone hype Solo up at the expense of Luke. Just my little rant.

    Spider-man 3 - On Going Developments

    Actually, according to the Sam Raimi movie, it's a genetically engineered super-spider. Sorry Travis, but I couldn't resist. .

    Die Hard 4 in the works - now out.

    Yeah you're definitely right about the studios pull, but I'd like to think that for one reason or another Sly has more pull with the Rambo films than Willis does with the Die Hard films, especially since Stallone seems to have made many people eat crow with the success of Rocky Balboa. Wishful...

    I hope Sly doesn't sell out and make Rambo IV PG-13.

    Spider-man 3 - On Going Developments

    From all the reviews I've read, it seems like Marvel has developed a pattern of releasing two good movies and then a third bad one. 1.) X-Men and X2: X-Men United as opposed to X-Men: The Last Stand 2.) Blade and Blade 2 as opposed to Blade:Trinity 3.) And now we have Spider-Man and...

    Spider-man 3 - On Going Developments

    Paul and Chuck, I agree with what the both of you are saying when it comes to the multiple villains in Batman Begins being connected together or in Chuck's case being used organically , that's why I stated that Nolan (and David Goyer) had a tighter story. But the point I was trying to get...

    Spider-man 3 - On Going Developments

    Having not seen Spider-Man 3 yet, it seems that the film at least according to the reviews I've read is having the same problems as X-Men: The Last Stand. But, everyone seems to want to forgive Sam Raimi or at least shift the blame to someone else (Avi Arad) while at the same time last year...

    Spider-man 3 - On Going Developments

    Lemon Krimpets, sounds tasty (pun intended). I guess they're limited edition because Tastykake wants to test the market. I guess if enough are sold, then they won't be limited anymore. It would have been nice to have some of Spidey in 3-D especially when he or Venom shoot their webs, but IMAX...
