    Hi all, Last week with Notorious, and last night with The Wrestler, there was a total loss of HDMI signal, which only a removal of cable solved. VERY embarassing for me, and VERY FRUSTRATING for wife, with guests over. Using Panasonic BD 55 firmware 1.8 to Yamaha RXV-3900 out to...

    BR QUICK LOOK: Harold & Kumar 2

    Hi, The BR does not have the theatrical cut found on the DVD edition. The Digital Copy is for Windows only (boooo). The sound is good. The picture was ok. The nudity was hilarious (crudely). The song soundtrack was amusing. For fans of the first movie.

    HD DVD: August Rush

    As a music and Mancina fan, this is a great wait. Good picture, very good sound. Singing is also good, but the music performances are best. Hearing and seeing Jamia Simone Nash on the Rhapsody will make you rain tears. Recommended!

    Hitman (Unrated)

    Hi, Watched this late last night after Atonement (which was interesting). The opening with 'song' is reminiscent of The Transporter opening (which was better). Getting used to Timothy Olyphant is ok as soon as he goes into action mode. His voice just needs to be heavier. The score by...

    HD DVD: Atonement

    Hi, Just finished watching this. A very bright picture, with wonderful colours and detail. Great sound, and interesting sound design/score. Just listen to the Dunkirk chorus. Another fantastic VISUAL shot was the shadow into light in the library - amazing. James McAvoy continues to...

    BR: 30 Days of Night

    This was our 1st test of a borrowed BR disc on a borrowed PS3. Note that we are/were an exclusive HD DVD retailer. The quick loading was nice. Setup was done. The common BR trailer played then into the movie menu which I guess is consistent with the DVD one, which I guess makes sense...

    The Contract

    Hi, This is a good transfer. Also has trailers for other First Look movies - possibly more HD releases. I didn't bother with the INSIDE LOOK feature (their version of IME). Sound was good. Movie was not bad. Menu is similar in design to Weinstein titles.

    Stories from a Hollywood set on location

    So there I was on a rare day away from work (renting HD/DVDs), on a beach, on the wrap day of an upcoming independent adventure thriller from some young Hollywood heirs, as board adviser for our Film Commission. And on the drive back, I ask one of the producers (think son of studio head) if...

    QUICK/VIEW: Night at the Museum

    FANTASTIC picture. Haven't seen one this good since Robots. Soudn was pretty good. Score by Alan Silvestri was noticeable. Movie was entertaining. Carla Gugino is always a soft spot.

    HD DVD: Smokin' Aces

    Yo, Didn't load on first add-on (serial 07xx). It was then a random thing as with Hollywoodland. Second add-on (serial 02xx) loaded but then started to stutter after I had let the screensaver come on from menu mode. It's playing ok now after reloading. Picture is great. The info grid...
