    Chronicles Of Narnia DVD Is Edited, Cut..more inside

    Well, I'm not sure how much this adds to the conversation, but I can personally attest to that fact that there are added things in The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, and some things are missing from The Silver Chair. I also taped these two off of PBS, and there are definite differences. I...

    Awful movies that end up as fantastic DVDs

    I'd have to go with Episode I. The movie's horrid, but it's one of my favorite DVDs.

    What do you think (or want) to be the next movie in the WB new 2- disc SEs.

    My top two would be Gone With the Wind and Casablanca. :)

    Singin in the Rain - new SE (Fall)

    Have the specs for this release been announced yet? I know The Digital Bits has the cover art up in their gallery, but I haven't seen the specs anywhere. Anyone know anything about this?

    Poll: Best DVD of the year

    I voted for Snow White. It's the most perfect DVD released to date, IMHO.

    *** Official "ROAD TO PERDITION" Discussion Thread

    Man, this is why I love this forum so much. I work at a movie theater, so I hear a lot of discussion about movies, but until I read this thread, I hadn't come across anyone who shared my opinion of this movie. :) As I have yet to see American Beauty, I was absolutely blown away by the...

    *** Official "HALLOWEEN: RESURRECTION" Discussion Thread

    Well, I saw this Thursday night, and I didn't really have the heart to comment until now. The plot is ridiculously stupid. The acting could have been worse, but was still pretty darn bad. Since I always jump at fast movements, I was jumping a lot, but I wouldn't say that the movie was scary...

    *** Official "HALLOWEEN: RESURRECTION" Discussion Thread

    I'm going to see it because that's what my theater is sneeking tonight, and that's only because Road to Perdition is "too long to watch at midnight." Who knows, it could be good. I must confess, I've never actually seen any of the Halloween movies, so I'm going with an open mind. :)

    *** Official "REIGN OF FIRE" Discussion Thread

    I say yay. I wouldn't say I'm dying to see, but I just love Christian Bale, and I get in free since I work at the theater, so I'm definitely going to see it. I have no idea what it's about, and I plan to keep it that way till I see the movie. I look forward to reading all your reviews after I've...

    The Chronicles of Narnia 8/27

    Jodee, yes, for the most part these are live action. I say for the most part because most of the flying animals are animated. But the films are 90% live action. I'm afraid this is not the version you saw as a child, but htey are wonderful nonetheless. :)

    The Chronicles of Narnia 8/27

    Mike, to answer your question, I think they are quite good. They are extremely faithful to the books, the acting is solid, and I find them very magical. Now, by any reasonable standard, the special effects are downright ridiculous, but if you can overlook that, they're wonderful adaptations of...

    The Chronicles of Narnia 8/27

    Hooray! I've been wanting to own these on DVD for the longest time! Now I can throw away those horrid copies I taped off of PBS. Wonderful news! :)

    Average price you pay for discs.

    I probably spend around $20 on average for each DVD purchase. The most I ever paid for a DVD was $40 for my Toy Story Ultimate Toy Box, but that, of course, was two movies, so you could count it as $20 per movie.

    Disney produce wide screen comparison demo!!

    This is wonderful news. And Disney couldn't have chosen a better film to showcase the wonders of widescreen, IMHO. :)

    What do you call it - pop, soda, or soda-pop?

    Down here in southern Louisiana, we call them soft drinks. Although, "coke" is used very often as well.

    The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001)

    Thanks for the response, Stephen. I did really love the movie, and I'm really pumped about seeing it again. I just wanted to make sure I won't disappointed by the preview. :)

    The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001)

    I have a question for all of you who've seen the Two Towers preview: since Lord of the Rings is no longer playing in my hometown, I was considering travelling to Baton Rouge, which is an hour away, just to see the new footage. Is it worth it?

    Question for Star Wars Episode 1 DVD Owners

    I think I remember seeing that too, Billy, but I don't believe it was a deleted scene. It may have been part of the documentary, "The Beginning." Have you looked for it in there?

    So which version of Lord Of The Rings will you be purchasing?

    I'm going to buy the four-disc version in November. I love my money enough to give me the strength to hold out till November. ;)
