    Film Noir - LIST

    As a big fan of "films noir," I've been subscribed to this thread for quite some time now. Been using it as a guide on what's new to DVD, and what I still need to rent, so I didn't really feel the need to chime in at all. But I just wanted to say what a cool and classy move it was on Rich's part...

    The Ongoing Wal-Mart $4.88/$5.50/$5.88 Bargain Bin Thread

    Hey, old pals. Just thought I'd let you know about Tower Records, if'n you happen to have one nearby. I happen to have one within walking distance from my house, and I headed over this afternoon to take advantage of their amazingly priced $16.99 King Kong 2-discer. Wandering through the back...

    Weekly RoundUp 3-28-2006

    Also got the KK 2-discer at a local Tower (NE Philly) for $16.99. Just got off the phone with the counter-guy and he said "Nope, not just today. That price is all this week."

    a movie only talk show on the radio every week

    Somebody noticed! :D Still a fan of the HTF, obviously, but I've been real busy with work all over the intranets. Good to see you fellas again. I'll be around a little more often.

    Ultraviolet (merged)

    Been looking forward to this one ever since the early word came out. I loves the Milla, and Wimmer's Equilibirum is one tasty sci-fi stew. But I'm NOT happy with the PG-13 that Sony had to have. Grrr.

    Then again, it IS Universal we're talking about. Perhaps a DTV sequel or two? :D

    Thanks, T. I should clarify, though. I still dig the HTF a whole lot. Several of the regulars and administrators are great folks, and the site delivers a fantastic amount of DVD information and opinions. This particular thread is a perfect example; I check it out every weekend! What I...

    2005 at the Box Office

    Comments like these are why I rarely visit this forum anymore. The film made 1/4th of its production budget in three days of domestic release. Numerous interviews with cast & crew have stated that if the film broke $15m in its opening weekend, then Universal would be "thrilled." So $10+...

    THE FOG Remake

    You hear this kind of thing a lot from people who are working on horror remakes, but here's the main problem I have with it: Is the new House of Wax more "sophisticated" than the original? Is The Amityville Horror? Hell, not even the remakes that I (and most people seem to) enjoy (Dawn of the...

    Finally: The Fly (1986) and The Fly II (1989) Special Editions are coming in Fall of 2005!

    Drop the link if you can still find it. Cuz I sure can't. ;)

    Finally: The Fly (1986) and The Fly II (1989) Special Editions are coming in Fall of 2005!

    I've always enjoyed The Fly 2. I think it's more of a traditional sci-fi horror flick than Cronenberg's film is, but I've always liked the sequel's aggressive nastiness. It's a pretty mean-spirited little movie. :) Looking forward to getting both of these SEs.

    2005 at the Box Office

    C, You think Cinderella Man is a "minor" period piece? I gotta disagree right back. ;) And I don't think the Holodeck Adventures come remotely close to the production design / art direction in Cinderella Man. (Though the TNG stuff is pretty darn impressive for what it is.) Ms. Zellweger...

    2005 at the Box Office

    Well, it's a period piece with a lot of sets and costumes. That's pretty expensive stuff right there. As are Crowe, Zellweger, Howard, Goldsman, etc. Acutally, in this day and age, I think $88m is pretty reasonable for a movie like this!

    Seabiscuit opened to over $20m last summer, and I think Cinderella Man could follow that flick's box office pattern -- minus $20m or so. ;)

    The Ongoing Wal-Mart $4.88/$5.50/$5.88 Bargain Bin Thread

    Thanks for the heads up. I snagged Deep Blue Sea ($4.88) and The Naked Gun ($5.50). Brought a friend of mine along, and he blamed me for his 32-dollar DVD bill. ;)

    THE FOG Remake

    And here you make another good point: just as a PG-13 is no guarantee of a worthless horror flick -- an R rating is never a sure indicator of a good horror movie. I walked into Amityville and Wax with relatively high hopes for each one, and both, while not awful movies, were definitely...

    THE FOG Remake

    Mike, You might think it's just because we horror fans want blood, guts & gore. But that's simply not the (whole) case. In order for a horror movie to achieve some true grimness and intensity, it needs to cross that "family-friendly" boundary. (Not always, of course, but usually.) How...

    Looks like that Stripes SE will be coming soon

    You wanna take a swing at me, Winger? :)

    Looks like that Stripes SE will be coming soon

    Yeah. I can't remember, but I'm pretty sure that happened because the FIRST thing I did with the DVD was click "Play" so I could check out the transfer. I then clicked "menu" on my remote and dug into the special features. So when I chose the commentary track and "play movie" it must have just...

    Looks like that Stripes SE will be coming soon

    Aha, good catch there, Colin. I simply chose the commentary from the Extra Features menu and the DVD took me straight into the theatrical cut. Only makes sense that you could turn on the Extended Cut and then flip the commentary track on via your remote's audio options.

    Looks like that Stripes SE will be coming soon

    Chris, I do suppose they did. After you hit Play Movie a menu screen pops up asking you which version you want to watch.

    Looks like that Stripes SE will be coming soon

    FYI, both versions ARE available on this DVD.

    Glad you liked the list. I did it mainly to keep my own head straight as I try to collect the paperbacks, but if you find it helpful ... cool! And I'm buying the darn books a lot quicker than I can read 'em. Damn you eBay! I'm particularly looking forward to the "Tales of..." anthologies...
