    Planning on purchasing a player, advice needed!

    I'm leaning towards going for a Toshiba HD-XE1 and have 2 main concerns: 1) How do current owners feel about the machine overall? Are there any obvious weaknesses that aren't hinted at in the marketing material. 2) I will be buying a UK PAL player, but plan on importing HD discs from...

    Difference between NTSC 3.58 and NTSC 4.43?

    Reason I ask is I just bought a TV that supports 4.43 but not 3.58. I'm in the UK, and I've got hundreds of imported Region 1 DVDs, so am starting to worry about them being NTSC 3.58 and not being viewable on the new TV. Not cool. Can anyone clarify the difference between the two, and set my...

    Downfall: 3 hour cut on DVD?

    Does anyone know abything about the rumoured/upcoming 3 hour version of Downfall (Der Untergang). I saw it in a re-run theater a few weeks ago and absolutely loved it. Fantastic movie. I'd really love to see an extended version, and I believe the rumour is that a german TV version has been...

    Original 1-Sheet Movie Posters - What are your sources?

    I'm trying to get my hands on a few original posters but am not having much luck with ebay. Other sources like movieposter.com and allposters.com don't have a very diverse selection. Does anyone have a reliable online source that has a good selection of more obscure titles? Specifically, I'm...

    The Bourne Ultimatum - when can we expect it?

    With the critical and commercial success of the second Bourne installment, an adaptation of the 3rd novel seems an absolute certainty. But given how the film of The Bourne Supremacy diverged so much from the novel, how can we expect the 3rd film to be different from its source, and how far away...

    Where can I buy UNCUT 'Malena' online?

    Title speaks for itself. I believe Italy is the only country that has the uncut version of Malena available on DVD. I bought the cheap french disc and its the US cut. Any help greatly appreciated.

    'Cold Mountain' - any opinions of this disk yet?

    I'm on the fence about picking this one up. I found the film really uneven, but it had some wonderful photography and some memorable performances. I know it streets on Tuesday, but has anyone received theirs yet? What's the transfer like? Extras? Any opinions would be great.

    Different Cuts of Kubrick's 'The Shining'. Clarification needed!

    I know Kubrick is notorious for cutting and re-cutting his films even after release, but the different versions of The Shining really confuse me: IMDB lists a US cut (145 minutes), European cut (114 minutes), and a fully uncut, supposedly extra gory Japanese cut (154 minutes), along with...

    Godfather Remaster - Any opinions yet?

    Just noticed that the single disc reissue is released on Tuesday. Anyone seen a copy yet? I haven't thus far made a Gdfather DVD investment, so I'd be very interested to see if the massive improvements this remaster promised to deliver over the original box set disc are up to snuff. If...

    Wim Wenders 'Paris, Texas'. R1 Status?

    Anyone know why this title just hasn't materialised? I remember reading a while back that Anchor Bay was releasing a Wim Wenders collection, and that this would be a part of it, but so far nothing?!?

    eBay Auction - This can't be for real!?!?

    "Buy 867-5309 Jenny's New York Phone Number" (Admin note - Do a search on Ebay if you're interested) First, who the hell is Tommy TuTone? Second, look at the current bid... $67,400.00! With 5 days to go that seems a little silly for a phone number!

    The question occured to me while watching The Italian Job remake trailer: which current films are gonna go through the re-think machine for future generations to discover first-hand? Of the remakes I can think of, they generally seem to break down into 5 specific categories 1) to exploit...

    Resident Evil Zero - Different Endings?

    I just finished Resident Evil Zero, and I msut say, I was rather underwhelmed. I loved the train. But every area after was very samey. I was very disappointed that the Umbrella Research Facility was so similar to the mansion of the first game. Still a lot of fun, just didn't live up to my...

    'The Player' New Line Platinum Series - how is it?

    Saw this last night. Its been years since I've seen it and it was much better than I remembered. I know this is now a very old disc. But it is New Line, and as far as I know, they've never done a really bad transfer. So how is it? I'd love to own this film, and New Line haven't disappointed me...

    Oskar Schindler - a question about historical accuracy.

    I watched Schindler's List today. I vaguely remember some controversy back in 1993 about how relatives of Schindler believed that the film misrepresented the man. That there were relevant, negative things the film didn't touch upon. I can't remember anything more, or whether any of this is true...

    'Alien' Question.

    How did 'the Company' know there was an alien lifeform on the planet before the Nostromo picked up the distress beacon? I didn't notice this question answered in the film, and I'd be interested to know if anyone can answer it, from the film/s or otherwise. Thanks.

    ER on DVD.......... when?

    Of all the TV shows, there's only one I'd love to own in its entirety.... ER. It also seems like an obvious choice for a series by series DVD release. Anybody have any news on such a release? Can we expect WB to start releasing seasons in the next year? Any news would be cool!

    UK Zelda Release Question

    Does anyone know whether the UK release of the Cube's Zelda game will have the same preorder bonus disc that was available in Japan and the US, and if so, through which retailers is it available.

    Just saw this and I need to own the R1 disc now! I know Fox have been doing price drops lately, so I thought I'd check if this one's up for a drop before I ordered it! If anyone can confirm if it definitely won't be dropping, then I'll pick it up now, I just can't wait to see this again...
