    BMWFilms - New movies to be posted in October

    I've pretty much hated every John Woo movie I've ever seen, but I thought this short was very entertaining. If you stretched it to 100 minutes, I'd probably feel different. I tried to get rid of the quicktime "skin" using a program called Full Screen Mov viewer. It worked on the last batch...

    Anyone annoyed with product placements in films?

    (It would have been cool if she were crushed by the falling debris.) The product placement in Spider-Man was very blatant. The movie seemed like one long commercial for Dr. Pepper, Cingular and Oscorp.

    Best place to purchase DVD player? RP-82, CP-72, or 4800

    As of 9/15, Amazon.com has the 4800 for $175.04 shipped. You can also get $10 off with the code MAPBABYTALK2. I'm thinking pretty hard about getting in on this deal myself.

    Monty Python and the Holy Grail: SE - Tosh SD-1600 help needed

    I have a Toshiba 1600, and the MP&tHG disc I bought in March does not exhibit the intermittant subtitle problem. I think one of the burnt-in "Swedish" subtitles from the opening credits is missing in the new version. This may be what is confusing you.

    A little late... 2001: A Space O.... Questions

    No offense intended, but this sounds like something Heywood Floyd might say. The "advanced alien race" interpretation is logically sound. But it is far from the only one possible. Viewers should not limit themselves to a solely scientific understanding of the film, which is a work of art...

    Can someone answer this NCAA basketball question?

    The seventh team foul of the half, not the fifth, is the "bonus" (one-and-one).

    HUGE DVD SALE at overstock.com!!!

    Was going to hold off on this deal, but Criterion Spartacus pushed me over the edge (can't get it through Columbia House). Also picked up Chicken Run, Repo Man, Cast Away and Unbreakable for a little over $10 apiece.

    Seven Ending: Discuss... (spoilers inside)

    You people are all a bunch of SPACE MONKEYS :). I am almost sickened to see you argue over which of the seven victims deserved to die. The point of the film is that none of them, no matter what they did, deserves the twisted fate that John Doe orchestrated for them. Anyone who thinks that Doe's...

    Princess Mononoke. Isn't there a six-hour VHS set of supplements available in Japan?

    Give me your opinion of "The Searchers" and "Red River"

    I have no problem with the ending of The Searchers. But it is far from "perfect". Natalie Wood was just wrong for the part she played; it was as if the tornado had yanked Dorothy out of the Wizard of Oz (perfect teeth, comically excessive makeup) and dropped her in the Old West. And everytime...

    HTF Members Choice as DVD of the year

    Snow White I have no nits to pick with this set.

    If you could only keep 5 DVDs, which ones?

    This was much tougher than I thought: Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon Fight Club Rushmore: CC Seven Samurai: CC Ultimate Toy Box Had to leave a lot of great movies behind in order to take the best overall DVD packages.

    GATTACA Questions

    The doctor's son was clearly not conceived naturally. His genetic manipulation must have been slightly botched somewhere along the line (ie he was "not all that THEY promised"). Later testing probably revealed this.

    Favorite Studio - DVD-wise

    Mine is still New Line. Fox would be number one by far if they time-coded their extras and dropped the annoying promotional intros.

    Which do you value more, your DVDs or your equipment?

    The first thing I would save is my "equipment". Second would be my TV, DVD player, etc. Last would be my DVDs. [Edited last by Calvin Cullen on November 16, 2001 at 10:32 PM]

    Question: How do I save Quicktime movie previews to hard drive?

    Thirty dollars to watch glorified commercials? That's money that would be better spent on DVDs :).
