    I found this very Intresting!

    It would never ever happen. Target is a major retailer and they buy way too much stuff for a studio to take any action.

    What Paramount Universal and DreamWorks titles are you waiting for to go Blu?

    Any I don't already have on HD-DVD. Until my HD-DVD player dies I don't see any need to replace any unless there is a new edition with really worthwhile extras (i.e. I would re-buy Hot Fuzz if the blu-ray had all the extras from the 3 disc DVD set).

    Toshiba HD-A2 woes.....

    So after calling Toshiba there was nothing they could do or try over the phone. The rep I got was great. Once they got the machine it back to me in less than a week. Not sure what the problem was really. The invoice they e-mailed me said something like "plugged in part". The return packaging was...

    My Harmony 880 doesn't work either.... but I can finally call them today so here is hoping I can get it to work.

    Toshiba HD-A2 woes.....

    The unit will not respond to any commands from the remote other than power on when it is off and open/close when it is off. I can't enter set up, I burned a CD-R and it goes to the Version up YES / NO and since it won't respond to the remote I can't hit OK when it is on yes. Pressing the buttons...

    Toshiba HD-A2 woes.....

    This is the only problem I have had with the machine. I had some audio problems earlier but that was due to my old receiver. Maybe you got this delivery man:

    Toshiba HD-A2 woes.....

    I tried unplugging it. Left it unplugged overnight. No dice. I went to work and called Toshiba and gave my symptoms. Since I didn't have it in front of me the only thing they gave me to try at the time was to "take the batteries out of the remote and press each button down for 2 seconds."...

    Toshiba HD-A2 woes.....

    So since I only have a handful of titles I haven't used my A2 for a couple of weeks. I only use it to play HD-DVDs. The firmware is at least 2.0. I use the Harmony 880 to control my set up. I hit my watch hd-dvd activity and everything fired up just fine. I used the open/close button on the...

    Anyone else having audio problems with Shaun of the Dead?

    I have the Toshiba HD-A2 and the latest firmware and the audio track on Shaun of the Dead has a kind of "warble" to it. Anyone else having any issues??

    Girl's Feet Severed on Theme Park Ride

    I have always wondered if that site was the result of an accident. It used to be a AOL member home page before the rideaccidents domain was purchased.

    Shirley Temple "Little Darling Pack"?

    I would so buy these Shirley Temple discs if they had Mike Nelson commentary tracks!

    Mike Nelson's DVD Rifftraxs

    I can't get enough of the Rifftraxs. I have enjoyed every single one to date, and I look forward to many more. They are fun and for 2.99 its a steal. Mike is doing Crossroads (2002) next and that one is going to be the most painful to watch and I love it!!

    High Definition DVD: What is Holding You Back?

    There are a few things holding me back: 1. I need a new TV. I only have a 36" standard television. I don't think that I would really see much of a difference with my current monitor. 2. Where are the goods?? The HD-DVD releases out now do nothing for me. Give me something that I have to...

    Asian Cinema on DVD

    Also to get that many different studio properties in one box would be near impossible. Especially the Rush Hour, and Shanghai movies. Tyler: To bad about those boots. I am constantly scouring pawn shops and used dvd places hoping to find those. I don't have the Criterion Killer and I...

    Asian Cinema on DVD

    Here are a couple pics of a legit Criterion Hard Boiled: The part of the disc that looks gold is just the reflection of stuff around it. The disc is silver except for the silk screened parts. The Killer supposedly has a white ring around the center of the disc that is supposed...

    Fist of Legend SE

    It looks like the stuff coming out is the stuff they have had the rights to for a long time and did nothing with. Harvey Weinstein claims to love films but he has no problem cutting them to what he sees fit. I just don't understand why a film that gets international acclaim everywhere in the...

    National Treasure DC anytime?

    Actually I think he was referring to the practice of movies coming out that have the original theatrical release in full-frame only while the "unrated extended cut" version is OAR. Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle & Anchorman are the only two I can remember right now, that the only way the...

    Region Free Dvd Player--legal?

    In the U.S. they could be sued for copyright infringement. Miramax has sent plenty of C&Ds to shops importing other region titles to the states for titles that Miramax has the U.S. rights to. Films are bought and sold to many distributors worldwide. The company that releases it in the U.S. might...

    Jackie Chan's The Myth

    ^ --- ^ Thanks for the info. I rarely listen to commentary tracks or read them in this case. It seems to be a bizarre way of differentiating the different periods. Couldn't he have used a different color scheme or anything else that didn't make the disc look defective. Maybe on the big...
