    In the "The Lives of Others" thread in the Movies forum, Iver reported that "One technical note on the DVD version of Lives of Others: there are problems with the subtitles. Every few minutes, there will either be a few lines of dialog with no subtitle or the subtitle will only flash for a...

    Laserdisc Collection FS: Some rare ones

    It will probably take two USPS Priority Mail boxes at $4.60 each. I've had good success with these combined with peanuts (50+ laserdiscs shipped over the last few years, no problems.). Call it $5.00, for a total of $40.00 Note: this does not include shipping the laserdisc player, only the...

    I'm in rural Northern California, and a 3-hour drive from just about anywhere. The gas will be more expensive than just ordering the batch. :-) jdg

    Well... I'm probably wrong here, but I thought the film used the new minor league baseball stadium, not the old War Memorial (football) Stadium. jdg

    Final Fantasy VII - Advent Children...looks grainy?

    One note: looks like the gamma? (black level) is off. I have to turn mine down a bit, and it helped with the look of the overall film. I'd have to agree with the comments above, including a surprising level of pixelation around the hair: something not in the first Final Fantasy film. jdg

    The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012)

    I don't think the problem will be "not P.J.," but will be "not Weta." Weta holds all the design and software for the LOTR world, and having a totally different look Hobbit will have IMHO a negative impact on the 5 films meshing together. jdg

    Mabye some good news for Hobbits!!

    Huff Cancelled

    Exactly. I gave up after a couple of episodes. Note: I would imagine Bird was slated to go the way of Teddy in season 3. jdg

    4:3 TV shows on my 16x9 TV

    (Trying to remember from a thread about rear projection sets...) I believe this is an artifact of rear projection 16x9 TVs due to the lense projection. Some sets are worse than others, probably related to the distance from the lense to the screen. Try doing a search on this subject at AVS if...
