    *** Official BATMAN BEGINS Discussion Thread

    This movie is easily my favorite of the year so far. I rank it even higher than Crash. The issues with the fight scenes that others had didn't really bother me; I enjoyed the depth of characters. All in all, a solid effort that I will be seeing again on Friday at the IMAX. One of my favorite...

    Wolfenstein Impressions--Are There Any Out There?

    I played until 2am last night and consequently I'm dragging today (behold the power of caffeine!!). Even though I'm quite a newbie, the experience was awesome. Hope to see you guys on at some point.

    Fellini & Hitchcock: Where to start?

    OK, you guys have definately given me an incredible start. I think I'll try Lew's chronological approach, but begin with rentals (per Matt). Seems like I'm going to have to get a nice bonus this year to cover the DVD purchases... Thanks again...

    Validate my purchase... Toshiba 50HX81 HD RPTV

    I just got delivery of my 50HX81 on monday and so far, I love it. I did the basic adjustments so far (turning down contrast, etc) but I'm waiting a few days before I give it a dose of Avia and conduct convergence. If anyone else has this set, experiences would be appreciated (in the way of...

    Jay-Z: MTV Unplugged

    I think the presence of The Roots made that album much better. Live instruments give a mellow sound to hip-hop that no amount of synthesizing can replicate...

    Fast and Furious Cars? Huh...

    The Skyline is the Infiniti G35. The new GT-R is only a concept now, but is supposedley also coming to the US. Rumors have it that the twin turbochargers and inline-six will be gone, replaced with a V-8. It should still be a Porsche-killer though...

    Probs with My Pioneer VSX Receiver

    I'm surprise you guys even got to speak to someone at Pioneer. When i tried calling, all I could get was a referral to the service center (via an automated voice, of course). Do you think that all Pioneer service centers are aware of the problem? Now I'm kinda worried if my receiver is...

    Probs with My Pioneer VSX Receiver

    Larry, I have a Pioneer VSX-26TX receiver and I experienced similar problems. The receiver would indicate that Dolby Digital and DTS signals were received from my DVD player, but no sound was sent to my center or surround speakers (only to the fronts). I carted it off to an authorized...

    Paradigm Monitor Series owners, what receivers do you use?

    Fronts: Mini Monitors Surrounds: ADP-170 Center: CC-370 Receiver: Pioneer Elite VSX-26TX (sub is kinda crappy so I won't mention it) This combo works for me, for the time being.

    I rented Pollack this weekend and found the performance by Ed Harris specatacular. I'm really trying to figure out how he didn't win an Oscar for this role last year... Must be a conspiracy...;)

    Toshiba DVD player sound issue

    For some reason unknown to me, my Toshiba SD-3109 DVD player refuses to decode Dolby Digital (or DTS for that matter) signals into something my receiver interprets as surround. I hear sound, but only from the front surrounds!! :angry: I know it's not a receiver issue, as the receiver correctly...
