    DVD Review HTF REVIEW: The Frighteners - Peter Jackson's Director's Cut (RECOMMENDED)

    Just bought this title (R1). For some reason mine does not have 5.1!?! I thought maybe there was an equipment issue, but other titles work fine. I took it to a friend's and still only had 2.0 stereo. I'm taking it back to Best Buy tomorrow. Anyone else have this problem?

    Mad Magazine's Up the Academy - 2-14-06!!!

    At least it will prove that I'm not completely crazy. My brother and I have been fighting for years on the Alfred E Newman footage. He does believe that it exists. (mocking tone) Vengeance is Mine!!! (end mocking tone)

    Any good deals on blank DVD's?

    Be careful with those huge spindles. You don't want to get stuck with 100 crappy discs. Sales are usually on 3rd or 4th class media. Heck, I used to think that Memorex made a good product until got some of their DVD+Rs. Not really the stuff I want to preserve my family memories on. Here's a...

    DVD Review HTF REVIEW: Tae Guk Gi: The Brotherhood Of War (RECOMMENDED)

    Chris, I'm guessing that you're Korean? MacArthur is a sore spot in my extended family. Being a distant (and I mean really distant) namesake for General Wainwright. "I will return" my ass. Mac didn't walk Bataan. But I digress. Lee EunJu was really very good in this movie, I'll have to...

    Alarm Clock with mp3 hook up

    Thanks Jim, I appreciate the input. A little out of the price range. My ceiling is about $75 per unit. I heard there was a Timex or Zenith model with USB2 input for iPods, I just haven't found it yet.

    Alarm Clock with mp3 hook up

    I hope someone can help. I'm looking for a alarm clock radio with CD and a plug in for mp3 players. I will ultimately need about 800 units, preferably black. These will not be resold. It is part of a hotel refurbishment. If any of the HTF sponsors carry this, I would be interested.

    DVD Review HTF REVIEW: Tae Guk Gi: The Brotherhood Of War (RECOMMENDED)

    I have been corrected by the wife, Robert Sohn is absolutely correct about the flag name. Watched the movie, another great film from South Korea. Not that Saving Prvt Ryan wasn't emotional, this movie is just a gut punch. The end with Jin-tae trying to kill his brother...Whew! I'm still...

    DVD Review HTF REVIEW: Tae Guk Gi: The Brotherhood Of War (RECOMMENDED)

    According to my wife it basically translates to "the flag." I believe it's like an emotional branding. An example - when Americans refer to "the twin towers" almost everyone thinks of the World Trade Center. Got the disc from Netflix this afternoon. I'll give it a spin tonight.

    Great review! I was going to surprise my in-laws with a copy (they are Korean) but I think now I'll screen it by rental first. cumsa hum nee da (Korean for "Thank you very much" phonically written)

    New bad habit, anyone else doing this?

    Well, I'm glad I'm not alone in this. A couple of another things - some mentioned already: I fall asleep to a movie almost every night. Set the sleep timer, turn on the subtitles, and relax. Drives my wifes nuts. My reasoning is I already know the ending, so it's okay to fall asleep. While...

    New bad habit, anyone else doing this?

    Because my work responsibilities have increased the past two years, my movie time has been trimmed down. Now I find myself watching parts of movies rather the an entire film. Usually it's the heavy impact stuff - The lobby shoot out in The Matrix The crane chase in T3 Asteriod scenes in...

    ***Official SHAUN OF THE DEAD Discussion Thread

    Finally saw it yesterday with the wife. Great film. Although she didn't get any of the references, I caught quite a few. I liked the follow thru of "You've got red on you." The audio mix sounded great, lots of ambient noise. Zombie moaning, pounding on glass, etc. I also thought...

    Blockbuster - get $8 in trade for DVDs Starts Oct 5th

    The three BB in my area stopped price matching last spring. The "loss leader prices on first week sales were killing them". Funny, that's exactly what they were trying to do to Mom and Pop video stores with rentals.

    Bill, Respectfully, I didn't really post it for just you. I have also been an off and on member of CH as have a number of people here. I saw a new program and I shared it. Granted, I don't buy the volume that would make it worthwhile for me personally. I thought there would be other who...

    CH new club - DV2

    Anyone else get Columbia House's new Club mailer? The deal - all DVDs (in the catalog) are 40% off list price. Free shipping. If you like the club, you pay an annual fee of $9.95. There is some decent stuff in the catalog, but nothing really better than release day prices. Might be good for...

    Pointless Slipcases

    I also think The Usual Suspects slipcase was an enhancement. Everything else has pretty much been a waste. Ohh pretty holographic colors on the cover, maybe (insert title) doesn't suck!:wink:
