    What? Sonds like the story of the ET game for Atari.

    Nickelodeon Dvds

    This is an "old" thread but I'd like to ask: what about Nickelodeon Blu-rays? Do they even exist? I've been looking for some of their biggest hits but no luck really. My only options for HD seems to be iTunes Store. :emoji_postal_horn::(

    NETFLIX MOVIES SELLING ON EBAY?

    Yeah but you can find that Exclusive VHS Retro Packaging Collector's Edition easily on Amazon and some other websites like the one you mentioned. So in the end, people looking to collect it got very lucky. I guess when a show is just too big, they will find other ways to make a buck.

    They do however have some of their big hits on Blu-ray: OITNB and Stranger Things.

    NETFLIX MOVIES SELLING ON EBAY?

    Not necessarily. The movie The Cult had an official Blu-ray release in Brazil by Imagem Filmes and it's on eBay. A bootleg of the same movie can also be found there but you can clearly tell by the cover art it's fake. Depending on the production, like The Cult, it's up to the producers to...

    Physical Media might not be dead, but Physical Media in Retail Stores are accelerating the death

    Oh the old soundtrack issue... most of the time that is the main reason why so many shows are never released on home video (as most here probably already know). I haven't bothered re-watching Alias on Prime exactly because they changed the songs. Alias was in great part Alias because of its...

    Physical Media might not be dead, but Physical Media in Retail Stores are accelerating the death

    That makes the OCD in me scream. Imagine opening the box and finding out that the device is defective. No way to get it replaced. If I've learned anything about the recent lawsuits that Apple has been facing is that Apple removed DRM from music like 15 years ago, but the same hasn't happened...

    Physical Media might not be dead, but Physical Media in Retail Stores are accelerating the death

    Oh... the joy of having the doorman hand me a package that's just been delivered! And, oh... that horrible anxiety about opening the package to find out that my special edition BD boxset/magazine/book has dog ear, creases, crushed corners or some other BS due to poor handling or bad packaging...

    Physical Media might not be dead, but Physical Media in Retail Stores are accelerating the death

    Yup! So crazy how so many titles got a VHS release but never saw the day when it came to DVD and other digital formats. Unfortunately some titles will just disappear. Im curious though: what type of VHS tapes you sell? Form your collection or are you talking about blank tapes? Just like I've...

    General Discussion Farewell, Google Play Movies

    And that's exactly when I feel like that optical media is still the way to go about "owning" movies.

    Blu Ray player with web browser?

    My Sony 3D BD player had one. But it was soooooo slow. I never used it besides for testing it when I got the device. The apps on that player were also slow when compared to my smart tv.

    What do you do when you discover a disc issue?

    To borrow from your post, I also do not trust the quality of blank DVD-R/RW discs. I never had the unpleasant experience of having a professionally pressed CD/DVD/BD fail on me. But CD/DVD-Rs... oh my. I lost count.

    Paramount+ The Good Fight - Season 5

    I LOVE this show. I have yet to watch seasons 3 and 4, but it's one of those shows that makes me feel lucky for having the chance to watch it. The Good Wife was also exquisite. So happy that CBS allowed it to run for as long as it did even tough it was never a ratings champ.

    Letter to ViacomCBS About Old Short-Lived Shows

    What if they outsourced those transfers by allowing students of Film Preservation to work on them? Students fulfill their internship requirements, get a lil' pay, great credits for their resumes, and fans get the chance to buy the shows while studios have a new transfer in their vault.

    Petition for White Collar on Blu-Ray

    Hey jr, I confess that a secret dream of mine is starting my own Blu-ray Boutique company just like the ones you mentioned. Would you be able to explain their business model? Do you have any idea how much they spend on each title to get a license to release them on DVD/BD? Shout I know that has...

    Memorable movie theatre moments

    At first I was like: wait that's for home video, oh no, it's about the actual film - they're trying to fight film to video transfers. How easy was it to take a film from a theater and transfer it to video? What type of equipment was necessary? I wondered if the markings would show if someone...

    Memorable movie theatre moments

    So nice of you to share that lovely program, Robert. Thank you so much. I love memorabilia. I save every playbill I get when going to the theater. Unfortunately programs were just not part of moviegoing experience anymore around the time I started going to the movies. Such a pity. I was a...

    Memorable movie theatre moments

    That's often what my grandma talks about: both staff and patrons dressed to the nines. While I don't necessarily think of formal wear as a necessity, I do dream about cinema etiquette. Please come back, cinema etiquette!

    Memorable movie theatre moments

    So many great memories on here. I certainly have mine as well. But what I miss though is an age of "going to the movies" (or cinema as my grandmother says) that I never really got to experience. See, I never really saw an uniformed usher with a flashlight guiding people that arrived late to...

    Looking for Advice on Ripping my CD Collection

    I agree about the 'don't make assumptions' thing. Super confused about the "forum etiquette" bit tho. But I guess that's off topic.

    Looking for Advice on Ripping my CD Collection

    I dunno. I'm not even that old. I'm a millennial. I have some DVDs, Blu-rays, CDs but not all the things I'd like to have. Part of that was caused due to DVDs releases in early 2000s that were kinda annoying with different screen formats (standard/widescreen) and some other BS that seem to have...

    Looking for Advice on Ripping my CD Collection

    Yes. I looked up specs online but wasn't able to find the manufacturer for the one I have. I will try a different approach. I see. So it's something that must happen as part of the ripping in order to work. I was under the impression that some people managed to get their files analyzed even if...

    Looking for Advice on Ripping my CD Collection

    I'm gonna be using my Mac SuperDrive. It's what I have at the moment and I don't really want to spend money on a new drive. I took a look at that URL you sent and it wasn't listed there. Lucky me. But, man, these past couple of days I've got lost into a deep hole of audiophile...

    Looking for Advice on Ripping my CD Collection

    Thank you, Jr. Learned a lot. I'm googling my drive model but haven't been able to find specific info about it. Supporting Accurate Stream, C2 error flags and over-reading, seem to be features that are pre-requisites for secure ripping of CDs. Do you have any idea of where I should go to find...

    Looking for Advice on Ripping my CD Collection

    Yes, it doesn't have anything to do with the actual extraction. I was just double checking with Jason that the problem he had with some titles was a database thing and not an issue with Apple's software. Well, okay... tomato, tomato. I just mentioned the PCvsMac thing because "many comments...

    Looking for Advice on Ripping my CD Collection

    I'm embarking on a similar project. So this thread has been very illuminating. Though I'm not ripping stuff to play just in my car, I'm trying to "future proof" some CDs. Why? Because Gracenote and the like having entries that are wrong? Or because of some error during the ripping? Why is EAC...
