    Doctor Who: Series 1-7 Limited Edition Blu-ray Giftset Available for Preorder

    Amazon has this listed as "unavailable". Usually when they are out of stock they'll list a delay. This sounds more like a cancellation.

    Doctor Who: Series 1-7 Limited Edition Blu-ray Giftset Available for Preorder

    Interesting. When I talked to the team in charge of mastering the classic episodes for dvd at a con, they were confident that seasons 1-4 would NEVER be available on blu-ray. Not only were these standard definition, but the 24 frame format degraded it even further. The res on these was below...

    Star Trek: The Next Generation Season Two Blu-ray Review

    Interesting. My area shows the opposite. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?id=pcat17006&type=page&skuId=6959098&searchpage=true&_requestid=487853

    Star Trek: The Next Generation Season Two Blu-ray Review

    Has anyone seen this on shelves yet? Amazon says 9 to 12 days, Best Buy says unavailable and target (which stocked season 1 heavily) has no space for it. A last minute delay?

    Blu-ray Review Jaws Blu-ray Review - Very Highly Recommended

    I saw the slipcased version in both Target and Wal-Mart and it felt like it was in a dvd case. Are there two different cases, like Louie? Or is it a blu-ray case inside the slipcover?

    Men in Black 3 - quick review

    I really enjoyed it, much more than I thought I would. The first film is one of my favorite movies ever, easily in my top 5. The second is just disappointing, a Ghostbusters 2 type misfire. This gets the franchise back on track. This feels like Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade; not the classic...

    Finally watching FOTR. Green yes. Bad no. And the level of detail blows the theatrical away.

    Report: Blu-ray Sales Falling Short Of Expectations Even As Prices Decline. Are you still buying?

    I'm converting most my dvd collection to blu-ray soit'smostly catalog. Selling the dvds at second hand shops to make up some of the money. I'm finding that a few titles can simply exit my collection.

    Best Buy Q1 Profits Fall 12% -- Do you still shop at BBY?

    I'm also finding unless it's a big release you won't see a title there for a month or so.

    I remember LFL saying these would be out in 2009. Still waiting.

    It's A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World - 7/5 (Another Wal-Mart Exclusive)

    Wal-Mart is all about volume. And these $10.00 exclusives should do very well for them. I know I want 4 out of those initial 5. My only worry is that they sometimes under order their own exclusives and not ship them to every store. Anyone who has dealt with their action figure exclusives...

    New Home Theater Setup (Denon AVR-590) questions

    I have a question about this receiver. I bought this six months ago and have been using it every day with no issues. All the components are running into it through hdmi. Last night there was an electrical storm and after one big crash the home entertainment unit went out. The surge...

    Then why could Spielberg direct the Indiana Jones movies?

    HTF DVD REVIEW: Tales of the Gold Monkey The Complete Series

    SO glad to hear the quality of the show holds up. "Raiders of the Lost Ark" was my favorite movie when I was a kid (still is) and I was glued to this show every week. I assumed this would be like the original "Battlestar Galactica", nowhere near as good as my memories. Reading this review is...

    The Phil Silvers Show

    If the whole series comes out I'll be ecstatic. But if it's only this one I'll be grateful. For the last five years I assumed the bets of was all we would ever get. You won't see me waiting this one out is what i mean.

    More of the Jetsons and other H-B cartoons on full season dvd sets

    I want the Fantastic Four but I heard there are rights issues with Marvel.

    Lost: Season Six

    Not necessarily. Remember MiB is walking around looking like Locke all this season even in front of Locke's body. He can take the form of anyone dead. And MiB is, in body anyway, so he can take that form.

    The Phil Silvers Show

    I don't care if Paramount completes this series or not. I'm just happy they finally put out a whole season!

    Just bought a new house in another state and my wife has agreed to a bigger tv for the living room.

    USHE Announcement: Battlestar Galactica (2004) The Complete Series Box Set (REPACKAGED)(Blu-ray)

    List is a price drop. The original set lists for $349, the new one $299. Judging from Amazon's pricing, the original right now is cheaper. However, Amazon goes up and down like stocks so when the new set is released the price is anybody's guess.

    Current "State of the Art" > Transition??

    I'm glad they still have it. My 42" plasma is now five years old, just before hdmi hit the market. It's a great screen and I don't want to get rid of it simply to connect a Blu-Ray player. I've got component going in and it's worth it.
