    The Ultimate Buster Keaton Collection

    We all knew this was coming - Kino finally collects all their Buster Keaton Ultimate Edition releases into one 15-disc boxset (release date 12/11). The MSRP ($299.99) is significantly less than that of the individual releases put together. If you had been buying the individual releases all along...

    Beware of Amazon trade-in program

    I have found Amazon to be beyond reproach for the most part (I have spent thousands on their site in the last year alone - including a few big ticket items) but I wish I could say the same about their trade-in program which apparently is farmed out to a third-party vendor. To be fair I have done...

    Buster Keaton's The Navigator on Blu 09/04 !

    Buster Keaton fans rejoice ! After making us wait for what seemed like forever (while they released other less-deserving Keaton titles - especially Lost Keaton and The Saphead) Kino has finally seen fit to release The Navigator on Blu. No word on extras yet but the release date is 09/04. Given...

    The Saphead (Buster Keaton) on Blu 07/10/12

    Kino announces a new Buster Keaton release every 3-4 months and I have been waiting in vain for the last year or more for my favorite title (The Navigator) to be released. It seemed to be a logical choice following the other top-tier titles such as The General, Steamboat Bill Jr, Sherlock Jr...

    Sherlock Holmes - Complete Granada series

    Has anyone picked up this set ? I have been a huge fan of the Sherlock Holmes TV series featuring Jeremy Brett but never got around to picking up the DVDs that MPI originally put out. From most reviews it seems that these DVDs (at least the early releases) were quite shoddily done. I waited all...

    Hassle-free way to get the most out of your used DVDs ?

    I used to be a very active trader here during the early days of DVD but due to time and other constraints I haven't been very proactive in getting rid of DVDs I didn't want any more. In fact I have let these unwanted DVDs pile up over several years promising myself I would eventually get rid of...

    The Graduate (40th anniv. edition) - any reviews ?

    I have the original Polygram release that is non-anamorphic and has a totally washed out transfer. I believe that MGM has repackaged this quite a few times without any improvement to the picture quality. Now that they are releasing a 40th anniversary edition, I was wondering if anyone has...

    Getting rid of 32" CRT ...

    I have a Panasonic 32" TV (CT-32XF55) which back in 1999 was one of the first CRT TVs with progressive scan. The picture tube still appears to be in perfect condition (producing an absolutely stunning picture) but the TV has developed some kind of a power supply problem. The TV turns itself off...

    Need Western recommendations ...

    I seem to have barely scratched the surface when it comes to Westerns and I would invite recommendations on essential Westerns I may have missed. An example of such a title would be the Fox release of 'Yellow Sky'. Not a title I had heard about before, but one I will probably enjoy (haven't...

    DVDs possibly lost in the mail - what do you do ?

    I have been pre-ordering DVDs at an average of about 2-3 per week for the last 5-6 years and have never lost any DVDs in the mail before. I had 2 titles shipped to me from DVDPlanet over 2 weeks ago and they never showed up. All other DVD shipments have taken less than a week to arrive (in fact...

    Has anyone sold DVDs to Digital Eyes ?

    I had a large number of DVDs (about 25) that I wanted to get rid of quickly. Since most of these were original versions of DVDs that have since been replaced by new and improved editions I did not want the hassle of selling them through half.com or ebay. I got an online quote for these DVDs from...

    Any way to get keepcase inserts for old Warner snapper titles ?

    Has anyone seen any old Warner snapper titles reissued in keepcases (except NxNW which was a part of the Hitchcock boxset) ? I am sure Warner will be doing that once the stock runs out on the snapper versions. I was wondering if Warner may also provide just the keepcase inserts to people who...

    Recent Fassbinder releases from Wellspring - any reviews ?

    I am specifically interested in Mother Kusters Goes to Heaven and Chinese Roulette. Has anyone seen these DVDs ? If so, is the picture quality on par with the early Wellspring releases (like Merchant of Four Seasons, Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant, etc) ? Any extras ?

    FPTV newbie needs help !

    I have been following some recent threads about inexpensive (sub-$2000) front projectors like the Panasonic PT-L300U and it seems that front projectors have some definite advantages (other than the larger screen size) 1) Compact. Occupy only a fraction of the space occupied by an RPTV. Easy...

    Toshiba 46H83 ???

    OneCall has this new Toshiba 46" RPTV model listed (coming in July). Does anyone have any information about this upcoming model (I would be interested in its dimensions and whether it will have a DVI input). I was on the verge of getting a RPTV in a 40-50" size range, but I might hold off until...

    'The Asphalt Jungle' - any chance of a DVD release ?

    This happens to be one of my favorite movies of all time and I just managed to catch it again on TCM tonight. The print was in very good shape and it didn't seem like any major restoration would be needed for a DVD release. I wonder what is keeping Warner from releasing this gem on DVD. I...

    'Serpico' reviews ?

    Based on the excellent transfers that Paramount gave other 70's movies like The Conversation and Marathon Man, I am expecting Serpico to look really good. I hope I am not wrong. Any early reviews ? The release date is barely a week away ...

    With the release date for 'To Catch a Thief' a little more than a week away, I was wondering if anyone here has managed to get a sneak peek at the DVD. Though Paramount generally doesn't disappoint in the picture and sound quality department, it would be nice to know what to expect before I...

    Thin Man & Shop Around the Corner - any reviews yet ?

    Warner will be releasing these two classics on 10/1 which is a little more than a week away. Has anyone managed to get their hands on these titles and if so, can they comment on the picture and sound quality ? I am curious to know if either of these titles was digitally restored by Lowry Digital...

    Universal Film-Noir ?

    Universal has a great many film-noir classics languishing in their vaults. I was wondering if they will ever release these on DVD. A film-noir series (similar to what they had on VHS) would be nice.

    Paramount: Any updates on these titles ?

    I was wondering if Paramount has an update on any of these titles (Mr. Blythe had stated sometime last year that some of them were in need of restoration). Was the restoration completed on any of the titles and are they any closer to being released ? I would appreciate any updates you may have...

    Kurosawa documentary DVD - any good ?

    Wellspring (formerly known as Fox Lorber) is releasing a Kurosawa documentary (which I am guessing is the same as the one that aired on PBS recently). The release date is 4/23. I was wondering if anyone has had a chance to check out the DVD. If so, how are the picture and sound quality ? The...
