    Point Break: Pure Adrenaline Edition

    No commentary... No sale. How hard can it be for Fox to get Kathryn Bigelow or Patrick Swayze to do commentary on this film?

    Terminator 3 DVD (wide) - Looks kinda blurry

    My T3 (widescreen) on my JVC 32" tv looks awful dull and almost out of focus. I have seen reviews where the image is listed as "A+" and sharp but I have to totally disagree. If it wasn't for the art work on the discs I would have sworn I had a pirated compressed version of the movie. Anyone agree?

    Is there an insert for the 2 Fast 2 Furious dvd?

    I am not sure if one was included with the DVD. All I got was an ad for cars inside my case. I didn't see any insert with chapter stops.

    For Metallica fans ... re: new record!

    Ugh. You know, I thought I would buy the cd and figured the DVD would be of some value. The songs I have heard thus far have sucked so bad that even a free dvd isn't worth it. For anyone who owns the the cd... Is every song/video on the DVD shot with that annoying fish-eye lens?

    Proposing to g/f in Manhattan, need ideas...

    Thanks for the input everyone. It's a huge relief to have some suggestions. I have been to the city a few times but pretty much lost on things to do and where to dine. My girlfriend has no idea, and she has never been to New York. She has gone all over the U.S. but never NYC and has always...

    Bright Lights Big City...Ugh! FULL SCREEN only.

    I really enjoyed this film and was looking forward to seeing it in widesceen once released on DVD. MGM again screws a great catalog title. Jesus, even The Last American Virgin is anamorphic.

    Can someone check their Attack of the Clones sound dvd for me?

    The problem I am having is after the layer change. The sound pop happens during the chase while both ships are in the asteroid field. The layer change is before Obi gets in to the asteroid field. The exact time is posted when I hear the sound problem.

    Can someone check their Attack of the Clones sound dvd for me?

    I noticed last night on my AOTC dvd disc 1, at 67:45 (the point where Slave 1 enters an asteroid) there is a pop sound that comes from the rear right channel. I would like to know if this is my dvd or on the sound track.

    I bought the Ultimate Toy Box when it first came out and returned it due to the horrible lip sync issue with Toy Story 2. I would like to buy it again (2 years later), but wanted to know if this has been fixed yet?

    *** Official "SIGNS" Discussion Thread

    Has anyone figured out why: The boy had to kill the dog? Was it just mad, or did the aliens have something to do with it? Why didn't the other dog go nuts? Anyone?

    Laptop video out to RCA in on TV...possible?

    I have an IBM 600E with a Toshiba DVD-Rom drive. I looked in the back and saw no type of video out except for the VGA port. Looks like I'll need some type of converter.

    PowerDVD vs WinDVD

    I have both and find WinDVD a bit better. Power DVD has a few cool options but WinDVD I find works better with Win98 SE. I ony use Power DVD when I want to use the zoom function.

    Any Chance for a Waterworld SE?

    I was just watching this on video and was wondering why Universal never re-visited this title. I know that the director and Costner didn't get along but an SE with commentary, deleted footage (like the stuff that aired on TV), and making of would really be nice. I think I am in the minority on...

    Conan The Barbarian: SE - why no 5.1 audio?

    This could have been a great release if the sound track could have been 5.1. I find this disc difficult to watch due to the crappy audio sound. I have tried to sit through it a few times but sooner or later the nasty audio sound drives me to hit eject.

    Yellow spot on TV during bright white scenes

    At first when I saw this yellow spot on my JVC 32020 I thought I had a magnet close to the screen. But there isn't anything near it. When watching a DVD and there is a very bright white scene the TV turns a 4 inch spot (on the left side) on my TV yellow. It's almost like the TV can handle the...
