    Lost season 3 discussion....

    I gotta say, I was disappointed to learn this about Sun. I'm with others who think this really robs some of the poignancy of her relationship with Jin. Up until now she has been a good woman devoted to an increasingly violent and corrupt man. The early story where she nearly left Jin is...

    The Office: S2 out already???

    I thought Season 2 of the Office was not due until September 12th, but I went to a Best Buy in Houston (near Galleria) last night and they had them all out. Season 2 was $39.99 and Season 1 was $23.99, but there was a pretty cool giftset that had both seasons for $49.99. Picked up the giftset...

    Romancing the Stone: SE - 08/29

    Well, I'm glad it's not just me. How on earth could Fox screw this up twice? My personal opinion is that this is the same exact transfer from the original release. A port over job would explain the same mistakes being made. I watched the original disc many times and always felt it was a handsome...

    Romancing the Stone: SE - 08/29

    There's a glitch that's driving me crazy, and I haven't seen anybody mention it. The subtitles are missing, and it ruins one of the best jokes in the movie when Joan and Jack are about to get killed in the Colombian town and Juan saves them when he realizes that Joan is Joan Wilder, the...

    "Serenity" 12/20/05 (SEE post #38 for details)

    Never seen the show, but the movie was good--suprisingly good. I really liked the characters, and it had an interesting story line. The beginning is crackerjack. Looking forward to watching the series now.

    3rd Rock Changes to DVDs

    I think these have been cut, but I have no proof. They all just seem about 30 seconds shorter than your typical TV show. I mean, we've seen a lot of TV shows on DVD at this point, and a lot that were broadcast on NBC (like 3rd Rock), and most are 22 min. I believe every 3rd Rock is just shy of 22.

    Gord, come back and tell us when they start working on Just Shoot Me: S3! I'm maybe even more eagerly waiting for that one!

    Quick Change on DVD?

    I'm sure this was a DGA approved film. The DGA allows for co-directors, but does not allow for more than two, and does not allow a non-DGA member to be credited with directing (a la Frank Miller in Sin City). For a similar case, see Eurotrip. Three guys created the movie and directed it...

    The Frighteners: Director's Cut - 11-29-05

    Wow! I had long ago given up on ever seeing this on DVD. Maybe there is hope for the Waterworld Extended Cut after all too.

    Jungle Book (1994) Discontinued? Why?

    I wasn't aware that Disney was releasing live action films as Platinum titles.

    Jungle Book (1994) Discontinued? Why?

    My Mom's been wanting this DVD, and in helping her track it down (got one off half.com), I've discovered that it's OOP. This seems strange because it was not even released on DVD until Jan. 2002, and it features anamorphic widescreen, commentary, and making of. Anybody know why on earth Disney...

    Am I the Only One Waiting for Just Shoot Me: S3???

    I just had to let it out. I bought the S1/2 set last June, and it made me a much bigger fan of the show than I ever was before. It's been over a year since that release, and there hasn't been any word. Anybody else dying to see the rest of this show--the only one to ever really utilize the...

    Mainstream DVDs you bought mostly for the nudity.

    The ultimate DVD for me on this subject would be Play Time, starring Monique Parent and Jennifer Burton. I've never heard of, much less seen, a movie that tops it. You used to not be able to rent it because people would just not return the tape. Image had it out on DVD, but it has been out of...

    Chappelle's Show: Season 2 Uncensored

    Sounds like a breakdown to me. No matter what Dave says, he's clearly acted in a pretty strange way. How many people just blow off a $50 million contract right in the middle of shooting? And the stuff Dave has said ("Comedy Central was interfering with my decisions") just doesn't jive. Chappelle...

    Tommy Boy: Holy Shnikes Edition!

    August, huh? Isn't that when Office Space:SE comes out? That will be a good month then! And to the guy above asking which movie I was talking about: Tommy Boy. Sorry for any miscommunication there.

    Tommy Boy: Holy Shnikes Edition!

    It's happening. I've already provided the details, and if you watch the preview on Without a Paddle, you can see clips of those details yourself. And it shows the cover art in the preview too. If you don't believe me, watch the DVD.

    Tommy Boy: Holy Shnikes Edition!

    I know it's hard to believe, but there's a long preview for it on the Without a Paddle DVD. I don't believe it said anything about a release date or new transfer. And it is really called the Holy Shnikes edition, and that's apparently how "shnikes" is spelled.

    Tommy Boy: Holy Shnikes Edition!

    I can't believe there's no other posts for this (I searched)! I saw the preview for it on the Without a Paddle DVD (not a bad movie), and it apparently has a lot of behind the scenes footage, plus it has deleted scenes. It's a 2 disc set! Just said coming soon. Office Space and Tommy Boy SEs in...

    DVD Review HTF Review: The Happy Gilmore / Billy Madison DVD Collection

    You're right and wrong at the same time when you say "Happy Gilmore is funnier than Adam Sandler's earlier releases (with the exception of Billy Madison)." Billy Madison was Sandler's first starring vehicle ... Happy Gilmore is the second. Big Daddy, Waterboy, etc. all came after Happy Gilmore.

    DVD Review HTF Review: The Chronicles of Riddick - Unrated Director's Cut

    What did everyone think of the re-editing? I had mixed reactions. The fight scenes, especially the last one on Crematoria were a lot better, but I didn't love all the stuff with the dreams. The seemed overdone and the effects were not great ... the last dream especially bugged me ... just didn't...

    Jeremy Brett Shelock Holmes series question(s)

    Generally, each set got better in terms of audio and video quality (and yes there were audio issues, especially in the first set). The order of releases was The Adventures, The Sherlock Holmes Feature Film Collection, The Return, The Casebook, and The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes. Of all these, I...

    The Chronicles of Riddick: Director's Cut Discussion Thread

    HTF has the review up now! Sounds like the "shifts" are prevalent, though the review doesn't complain about them, so maybe it's no big deal.

    DVD Review HTF Review: The Chronicles of Riddick - Unrated Director's Cut

    Can you tell us more about the subtle shifts in picture for the newly included scenes? And perhaps, in a non-spoilerish way, (since the shifts indicate new material) what some of the new scenes are about? Excuse my curiosity, but I loved the movie in a way that (judging by the majority of...

    The Chronicles of Riddick: Director's Cut Discussion Thread

    What's negative editing? If it's the same problem as T2 that's fine with me because I never notice any problem with T2. ;)

    The Chronicles of Riddick: Director's Cut Discussion Thread

    Over at AICN, Harry Knowles gives a few details in his November DVD round-up. Of interest is that some of the new scenes are glimpses of Riddick's homeworld and his dreams. However, he says there's a "slight hitch" whenever the movie cuts to a new scene. I don't like the sound of that. There's...

    The Chronicles of Riddick: Director's Cut Discussion Thread

    Maybe there aren't many like me out there, but I really enjoyed COR, and thought it was not only a great expansion to the universe created in Pitch Black, but also an entertaining and even thoughtful genre movie in its own right. With this being a great season for director's cut DVDs, it seems...

    MST3K Vol. 6 Due 9/21/04

    They shipped the Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes to me on Thursday, and I paid for the 2 Business Day Delivery, and it still has not arrived. Maybe tomorrow.

    IGN reviews Daredevil Director's Cut

    I checked four e-tailers and they all listed November 30th as the release date.

    MST3K Vol. 6 Due 9/21/04

    DeepDiscount shipped mine on Monday (lately their shipping has been taking forever, anyone else notice this?), but if you want to pick it up at a store you should absolutely go to Borders. I picked Volume 5 up there, and it was reasonably priced because it was the first week of release. I think...
