    WTB Paradigm v.2 atoms - black

    Looking for a used set of atoms or possibly Titans to match the rest of my v2 Paradigm performance line setup. Don't have to be in perfect cosmetic condition as long as they still perform well.

    Arrrgh! A Blu-Ray give-a-way!

    Thanks Adam! My disc arrived last week and it looks amazing! Just got into blu-ray so it's nice to have something to add to my tiny but growing collection.

    *** Official OPEN WATER Discussion Thread

    Just rented this DVD. I thought it was fantastic. A little rocky at the start as you get used to the low budget feel, but you get used to it. Personally I found most of the things people complain about as strengths. But I tend to be a minimalist when it comes to movies. A lot of people think the...

    Band Of Brothers...?

    I never ever buy a DVD without seeing the film first. I bought this set unseen, and I have never regretted it. Along with Das Boot, easily the best war movie/series ever made. Better story, and much better characters than Private Ryan of which I'm also a huge fan.

    Future of Sony SA-WM40?

    Great. Now I'm tempted to grab a second one and I really can't afford it right now.

    Future of Sony SA-WM40?

    I see Best Buy has these on clearance? Is Sony discontinuing this model?

    Projector table vs ceiling mount

    I have a Sony HS10. It is currently roughly 13' from the screen, located in the center of the room at a height of roughly 5'. The room is quite large, at 13' the projector is roughly in the center of the room. I think what I am envisioning is perhaps a stand in the center of the room containing...

    Projector table vs ceiling mount

    I'm currently trying to decide whether my projector is going to rest on a table in the middle of the room, or whether ot ceiling mount it. Due to my room setup (heat duct along the ceiling) it would be much more convenient to keep in on the floor. I'd be curious to hear what solutions others...

    Piece of Cake DVDs, any reviews?

    I see the British miniseries Piece of Cake has made it's way to DVD. Has anyone seen any reviews or purchased these DVDs who could comment on the quality?

    Does Daniel Day-Lewis ever stop running in Last of the Mohicans?

    Who Didn't Win an Oscar Who Should Have?

    I've written off the Oscars since it's rather like if you were watching the Superbowl and the clock ran out with the score 20-17 and the team with 17 points getting the title because heck they've been playing hard for the past few seasons and they sure deserve one by now, or no team in their...

    Terry Gilliam on NPR (thoughts on Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter)

    "Hey what are you guys doing?" "We're playing Harry Potter" "HA!!" Well that's as far as I'm taking that given it's politically incorrect finish. Great post Vickie! I'm not a fan of all of Terry's works, but I definately respect his views when it comes to film.

    Who Didn't Win an Oscar Who Should Have?

    Second the Saving Private Ryan. Spielburg shocks the nation with a war movie that slaps you in the face. I don't know a single person who came out of that 3 hours and wasn't affected. Lost best picture to an entertaining but hardly groundbreaking romance. My personal #1 moment of disbelief in...

    Scared of RPTV

    Hmmm February might work out perfect. I'm moving into the new house the last weekend of Feb. Thanks for the tip. As for the weather, the sleet started coming down a few minutes ago so I'm staying in for the night.

    Scared of RPTV

    Yeah that's kinda my opinion on the matter. If I spend that much on a TV I want to be able to enjoy it and not have to display everything distorted or flip channels constantly and so on to keep it from ruining itself. You're never going to watch DVD's at their correct aspect ratio, you're going...

    Scared of RPTV

    Hey Rick, I work over on the fashionable west-side. I've been looking at Circuit City and American so far. If you know of any good alternatives in town let me know and I'll definately check them out. I went in today and had a look at the RPTVs on the floor. I was able to see the THX logo...

    Scared of RPTV

    Yeah that's pretty much what has gotten me a bit nervous. It's very similar to my feelings about LCD projectors where you stand a risk of getting a pixel stuck on a few years down the road. It's very difficult making the decision between a bigger picture or a more reliable device. As I...

    Help with RPTVs -Panasonic

    Just curious from you Panny owners. How is it not having a screen protector after the set has seen some use? Do you find it difficult to clean? I've been looking over the 53" Panny in the store lately and I really like the reduced glare. Just curious what some thoughts are on it from someone who...

    My first RPTV...yuk...

    As I understand it, RPTV isn't going to hold up like a direct view up close. I've taken good long looks at some friends and from 6' away they don't look all that good. But from 12' away, they look great. That changes if you get a HD signal, but on regular programming, from what I've been able to...

    Scared of RPTV

    Ok a local retailer is having a 24 month no interest financing deal and I just bought a house (finally!!!) So I've been cruising for a new display for the past week and had more or less made up my mind on a nice 47"-53" HD ready RPTV, being undecided between the Toshiba 50" and the Panny 47" or...

    *** Official "THE TWO TOWERS" Discussion Thread

    Actually on the first appearance of the ringwraiths my 5 year old nephew apparantly demanded that the whole family go to bed because the movie was too scary to watch.

    *** Official "THE TWO TOWERS" Discussion Thread

    On the whole Vader villian discussion, I have to chime in that one thing I am not at all happy with in LOTR is the handling of the Ringwraiths. Just not scary. They should have been the Darth Vaders of the series. FOTR seemed to think that a lot of screeching, loud overbearing music, and fancy...

    *** Official "THE TWO TOWERS" Discussion Thread

    Donna, there was a lot of griping about the decision to not make the TT ending as you have in your spoiler. However I'm starting to think it was a really good idea to change things the way PJ has. It's clear already that they needed more time to spend on events in TT, and in truth ROTK has the...
