    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)

    If they do this ala Star Trek Into Darkness with regards to Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns it could be interesting... Personally I'd love Man of Steel 2 to be along the lines of Lex Luthor trying to kill Superman for his part in the mass destruction of Metropolis by recruiting a long...

    NAPOLEON Gala Event 2012 (San Francisco Silent Film Festival)

    At last! I was lucky enough to see this in London (UK) in 2004 (thoughts here) and would seriously consider flying from London to see it again, if I wasn't already booked up on a snowboarding holiday. :( I urge anyone with a love of cinema to consider checking this out. I just hope it sells out...

    Alexander Revisited: The Unrated Final Cut -- Due 2/27/07

    Like Nathan says the finally battle in India is astounding, so much so I find it hard to understand why Stone didn’t editing the battle in the same way for the unrated Director’s Cut. It not only more brutal but it contains a lot more pathos…My favourite scenes in any version were the one...

    DVD Review HTF Review: Robocop Trilogy

    The R2 used branching to play either the R or X version of Robocop - unfortunately it wasn't SEAMLESS branching - so there was about 5 layer change like pauses throughout the movie. :thumbsdown: Is this fixed on the r1?

    Kill Bill V2 - Shogun Assassin???

    The 'Samurai' movie is available on R2 UK DVD quite a scabby transfer but considering the history* of this bastard child it's not all bad. "Ohhhh mad one we see your trap!!!" *History In a pre-Miramax move a US company in the early 80's took the first two Japanese Lone Wolf movies; cut...

    36th Chamber of Shaolin aka Master Killer I believe both DVDs out are uncut and 'scope so it's a toss up between the r1 Steeplechase version (called Shaolin Master Killer) with the 'classic' English dub or the newly remastered Celestial r3 DVD for a vastly superior image but Mandarin Only...

    Ok now some other people have finally seen it... A couple of things I wanna discuss.Car Chase What I love about this is the fact is comes from absolutely no where. The car ain't some hi-performance type affair. I mean Chance is driving a Dodge pickup most of the movie, and there no...

    ...and here's some grabs from the NON-SE. (click images for full size version) The two transfer have bitrate peaks of 9.8Mbps on the SE and 9.5Mbps on the non SE. Therefore I conclude the SE is 0.3Mbps better!!! :b :b :b
