    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Gangs of New York (Take Two) -- in Blu-ray

    My local BB did not honor the $12.99 price the first time I tried to buy it. I was pretty pissed considering that is what their advertising showed and 99.0% stores will follow the advertising, even if it is wrong.   I went back a few days later and the girl at the register sold it to me for...

    Die Hard 5 in the works

    I watched Die Hard With A Vengeance a few weeks ago on DVD. I haven't upgraded to the Blu Ray but would like too at some point. I've seen this film at least 25 times but it never gets old to me much like Die Hard. DHWAV is right up there with the original in my opinion, not quite a good but...

    USHE Press Release: The Bourne Collection (Blu-ray)

    Amazon has it available for pre-order for $78 so at $26 per film. That is not too bad IMO.

    Speakers for Denon 2809ci receiver?

    2309ci is working great for me. Other than the slightly better DAC and more wattage per channel on the 2809ci there aren't any differences that I cared about. I bought my 2309ci for $620 new so the money I saved on my receiver went to speakers.

    Speakers for Denon 2809ci receiver?

    Take a look at Def Tech Mythos since your looking at DT already. A step up from the Pro Monitor lines. I am running a pair of twos for front L/R, a three for my center, and a pair of sixes for my surrounds. They sound great to my ears. I would like to add Gems XLs for 7.1 someday. BTW, I have...

    If you could bring a dead rock star back to life

    No brainer for me. John Bonham. I was fortunate enough to be front row for the Zeppelin reunion show back in December and as great as it was with his son on drums, it would have been even better with John on the stool. For the Zep fans out there, here are some pictures I took at the show...

    Forrest Gump: Appreciation Thread

    I watched Forrest Gump for the first time in years last night on DVD after catching the end of Cast Away on cable. What a great movie. My favorite scene is when Forrest meets up with Lt. Dan in NYC and they're with those two girls on New Years eve. One of the girls calls Forrest stupid and...

    Funniest line in a movie?....

    When you drove in here, did you notice a sign out front that said, "dead nigger storage?" Best line ever.

    Will you be rushing into the new Hi-Def formats in 2006?

    My first DVD player was my with PS2 and and my first blu-ray player will be with the PS3. My set has HDMI but is an EDTV so I won't benefit too much anyway. DVDs look fine to me and I will not be purchasing a stand alone player in either format for at least a few years.

    Who does this (with their 2 dvd disc sets)

    I do this too. I also avidly switch cases around because I like for all of my DVDs to be in shiny new quality cases. I order spare cases to swap with ones with tabs and the big notches where it opens or if any residue on the original left from stickers. Both of those type cases really chap...

    *** Official KING KONG Discussion Thread

    But Carl wasn't around to hear this was he? I think the word Kong was also uttered when the film crew first crossed with the natives. But nobody in the crew would have known Kong was who he was just from hearing the word at that point. Btw, I loved the film. Sure it had it's flaws but...

    *** Official KING KONG Discussion Thread

    Well with just over 50 million for the weekend gross, that brings King Kong up to 66 million since opening. I don't think there is any way it will not make it's money back, but it's a shame it is not doing better.

    *** Official KING KONG Discussion Thread

    I didn't notice this until my second viewing either. Funny that when it was over my 6 year old cousin that I took to see it, said "I liked when Kong bit off the T-Rex's tongue ...the T-Rex fight was my bestest part."

    Tremors any chance of another release?

    And your getting a free pass to a movie you were going to pay $7 plus to see anyway. This is an excellent deal and I will definately pick it up tomorrow. I too, only care for the first movie.

    *** Official STAR WARS Saga (episodes I to VI) Discussion Thread: Part 4

    I was watching Return of the Jedi last night and I have a question for all of you Star Wars experts. In the scene where the Emperor orders Vader to his command ship there are two guys standing near the Emperor. As Vader begins to leave it appears the Emperor is speaking with them. Who are these...
