    "Sixteen Candles" Missing Scenes?

    Until I got the DVD of Sixteen Candles, I think I had only seen it on my pre-recorded Beta tape. While the disc certainly looks and sounds great, I noticed at least three scenes missing: 1. Jake tries to call Samantha, but gets grandparents. On the DVD, the original scene where he calls then...

    iDVD - Flim/Video Flags?

    I have recently started burning DVDs on my Mac using iDVD. The first few were home videos, which I haven't watched much. I finally created a DVD of an old B&W movie (It Happens Every Spring) that hasn't made it to DVD yet. The movie was on a Beta tape and recorded off of cable. Since it was less...

    Bull Durham DVD Video Comparison?

    Sorry if this has been covered already, but I tried searching and couldn't find an answer. I already own the original DVD of Bull Durham. Is the video quality on the new release significantly better than the original? I don't really care all that much for extras, but would double-dip if the...

    King of Hearts Subtitles Question

    I recently found out that King of Hearts (Le Roi de Coeur - 1966) was out on DVD and was wondering how good the disc is. I haven't been able to find any reviews (here or on the web). It looks like it's non-anamorphic, which I can live with, but I'm curious about the subtitles. Since my player...

    Equestrian DVDs?

    I am thinking about taking the region-free leap, but haven't convinced myself (or my wife) that I need a region-free player. My wife is into horses big time, and if I could find some good equestrian DVDs that were only available in other regions it might push us over the cliff. I've been...

    To All Studios That Do Pan & Scan

    I recently bought a 16:9 TV. While this has greatly improved my normal DVD viewing experience, there is one thing that really gets under my skin now. I don't buy DVDs that are not in their original aspect ratio, but I do occasionally rent them. It is hard to describe just how annoying it is to...

    Any Chance of "It Happens Every Spring"?

    I just watched my old taped-off-cable Beta copy of "It Happens Every Spring" and wondered if there's any chance of this classic baseball fantasy ever being released on DVD. I believe that Fox owns the rights.

    A League of Their Own:SE?

    I've thought about picking up the existing DVD of A League of Their Own. It can be found for under $15 and it's supposed to have a very good anamorphic transfer (though no extra features, which normally doesn't concern me all that much - just give me the movie!). Then what's stopping me? This...
