    DVD Review HTF DVD Review: The War (Ken Burns Documentary) (RECOMMENDED)

    I received my review copy last week and am in the middle of reviewing it for the blog site. When I saw it, I told my wife, "This one's a must-keep." My dad was a WWII veteran and saw action in Germany and France, and I remember him sharing stories with me about what he saw overseas during...

    Have you ever been attracted to one of your teachers from school?

    I remember my sophomore and junior years in high school, and a teacher I had who was in her late 20's taught English and journalism. Needless to say, I had a little crush on her. Thankfully it didn't go far. Then in my senior year I remember a keg and key party at a friend's house, and I saw...

    HTF REVIEW: Heroes - Season 1

    Excellent review, Matt! This is one DVD I'm looking forward to. I'm still awaiting my review copy for review on my blog site and haven't gotten it yet - ugh! Talk about slower than molasses...

    Young Indiana Jones Chronicles Vol 1 - October 23, 2007

    That's definitely true. I had a copy of one of the VHS tapes, I think it was either Chapter 14 or Chapter 15, and on it was a seven-minute featurette that had an interview segment with George Lucas and, more interestingly enough, a portion of Sean Patrick Flanery's screen test for Young Indy...

    any laserdisc titles still worth owning?

    If you can find this import on eBay or through any other searches, the Japanese LD of "Superman IV" issued by Tohokushinsha Home Video is a must-keep. Prior to the 2001 U.S. DVD release, this was the first widescreen release of the film, and it's the only LD source for the 93-minute European...

    The Archive of Incomplete TV DVDs - Buyers Beware! (Updated 3/27/05)

    Lots of recent incomplete TV on DVD sets since it was last posted. Here's what I've seen thus far, which obviously duplicates what's appeared in other threads: The New Adventures of Superman - All of the Superboy segments have been left off the set. Hawaii Five-0: Season 2 - "Bored, She...

    Hawaii Five-O - Any Interest Out There?

    I received a review copy of this DVD last week and have personally reviewed the entire set, and I can officially confirm that "Bored, She Hung Herself" is not included in the Season 2 set. Andy Dursin over at The Aisle Seat also made the same error as Gord, and I notified him of the error...

    Worst employee stories..

    This happened at the Wal-Mart in my town a couple of weeks ago. I went to get the oil changed in my car, and these two mechanics, neither of whom looked like they had any sense to begin with, stood around and did their own thing for 12 minutes before they noticed I was even there. One of them...

    The Lost Cut- Alternate versions of movies

    There is a slightly longer version of "Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home" that U.S. audiences didn't get to see back in 1986-87. When the film was released in overseas theaters, there was a four-minute prologue recapping the events of STII and STIII with narration from Captain Kirk (William Shatner)...

    Well, "Titanic" nite again. Anybody else have plans?

    Hey Dave, that 5-disc set you've got... is that R1 or R2? And how many trailers are on that disc?

    Well, "Titanic" nite again. Anybody else have plans?

    My older daughter had mentioned to me just last night about wanting to put it in the player for a spin. Even after seeing it in the theater, getting the VHS releases (both fullscreen and widescreen), watching it on HBO and NBC, and now the SE DVD, I've still not gotten through it a complete...

    Lines Of Dialog Given Classic Status By Great Performers...

    My two cents' worth: "Bond. James Bond." - as first said by Sean Connery in "Dr. No" "I'll get you, my pretty, and your little dog, too!" and "How about a little fire, Scarecrow?" - Margaret Hamilton as the Wicked Witch of the West, "The Wizard of Oz" "LET MY PEOPLE GO!" - Charlton...

    What is the one show you think has been ignored that should be released on DVD?

    I'm surprised nobody has mentioned anything about Evening Shade - that was a really great ensemble comedy!

    Screen Tests as DVD bonus

    Christopher Reeve's screen test on the "Superman" SE DVD is absolutely awesome. It shows clear and away why he was the best choice for the part. Some of the other screen tests range from interesting to quite hilarious, including a clip from the screen test of then-well known Beverly Hills...

    New Adventures of Superman: Filmation - Any News?

    I'm thinking Warner has access to the Filmation cartoons, since during the 1980's there were VHS releases of some of the Filmation segments. One of them I clearly remember was a 60-minute compilation of Superman segments, and they also did a VHS compilation of Superboy segments as well. So they...

    FINALLY!! The Incredible Hulk Season One!!

    And neither is Jack Colvin (who played reporter Jack McGee), for that matter. Unless they can find vintage interview footage with Bixby and Colvin, the only new segments would have to be with Ken Johnson and Lou Ferrigno. I for one wouldn't mind dipping for this series on DVD, as it was one I...

    the return of Dallas on the big screen

    Fox News just announced that if Hollywood has their way, John Travolta will portray J.R. Ewing and J.Lo will portray Sue Ellen in the film version of "Dallas". Puh-leeeeeze... :thumbsdown:

    Superman Anthology (1978 - 1987) Possible?

    The one thing I'm looking forward to, other than getting the Donner cut of SII and the deleted scenes of SIV, is hopefully a better remastered version of II, III, and IV without all of the wire work evident in those films. The previous transfers clearly revealed lots and lots of wires throughout...

    Dana Reeve has passed away

    From what has been mentioned this morning, Will is currently in the close care of family and friends, and arrangements have been made where he will be taken care of in his life. On the Today Show this morning, Katie Couric and Matt Lauer had interviewed Kathy Lewis, the president of the...

    Dana Reeve has passed away

    Mercy... hasn't this family endured enough already? I just saw it on the Today Show a few minutes ago and was hit as hard as when Chris suddenly passed away. All my prayers at this time to Will, Matthew, Alexandra, and Dana's family. :frowning:

    Funniest movie edit for tv

    In the theatrical version of Superman II, once the sheriff and deputy confront the Kryptonian villains, you can hear Clifton James say, "Dwayne, you gotta learn to kick ass if you wanna be a peacemaker." But in the Salkinds' extended version that has aired on TV all over the world, the line was...

    Advice to makers of documentary extras

    One thing I don't like about DVD documentary features is when someone is interviewed who had absolutely no contribution to the film at all. Using film critics/historians is one thing, as people like Roger Ebert, Rudy Behlmer, or Robert Osborne thoroughly research classic films and have important...

    Actors/Actresses you'd bring back or make younger...

    There's only one actor I'd bring back, turn back time about 20 years, and return him to the prime of his life - and that's Christopher Reeve. He left us way too early.

    Curious George - quick review

    I took my nine-year-old daughter to see it Monday night, and I was actually surprised how good it was. And to see a G-rated film that didn't try to sneak in adult-based jokes as sight gags for kids was a real surprise at that. This is definitely a film that, when it comes out on DVD, I plan to...

    List of Alternate Cuts with/without Director Approval

    Actually, Josh, that's not quite exactly the case. In ROTS, there is a slight tweak between the theatrical and DVD versions - once the Anakin/Obi-Wan battle has ended, and Obi-Wan leaves Mustafar, pay attention to the switch to the next scene of Anakin on Mustafar. The scene switches to a hard...

    Any news on possible non-flip SE's of Warner's 'A Time To Kill' and 'Sleepers'

    I for one wouldn't mind seeing a complete SE of A Time to Kill, particularly with the full four-hour cut of the film.
