    Does FOX Home Video still participate with the Home Theater Forum?

    I was wondering the same thing. I haven't seen anything by or about Peter Staddon for a while, and he used to be a regular around here.

    Anyway, if you're still out there, Peter, please don't forget about JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH. Thanks!

    One thing you have to remember is that it was never an "official, designated liason from Fox to the HTF". Mr. Staddon took his time to help out his fellow HT geeks [​IMG]
    Mr. Staddon last appeared on Feb 6 to my knowlege
    He IS a very busy person, he has a family, and he's a VP in a major studio. That would keep ANYONE hopping [​IMG]

    What Jeff said. There is no "official" connection between 20th Century Fox and Home Theater Forum. Mr. Staddon has been a great friend to the Forum and still is; his duties have increased manyfold of late, and that explains his rarer appearances on the boards. And I doubt seriously that he has "forgotten" Journey to the Center of the Earth.

    Jeff and Jack are, of course, absolutely right about Mr. Staddon. Also remember that there are plenty of folks from all the studios who read this forum, even if they don't post here. I wouldn't be surprised to learn that Mr. Staddon still lurks as his schedule allows, and keeps up with the interests and concerns of HTF members.

    Regards,

    Joe

    The only thing I have to say on the matter is that non-posting activity doesn't mean a certain individual has not been lurking and reading the forum. You can take that last statement to the bank! Just a small hint, the year 2003 is going to be a great year for classic film lovers.

    Robert,
    I certainly am encouraged by your statement regarding classic film releases in 2003. Hopefully, the 'powers that be' are going to be able to slip a few noir ( *cough* Laura, Kiss of Death, Night and The City *cough* ) titles into their release schedule.
    - Walter.

    Well, if anybody from Fox is lurking, it sure would be nice if they would acknowledge the lip-synch problem on the DTS track of the otherwise tremendous MOULIN ROUGE DVD.

    Last I saw they have not adequately responded to this concern, even though many people with many different players are plagued with it. Much different than the way Peter interceded and dealt with the CLEOPATRA problems.

    On the other hand, I guess this isn't the biggest concern these days when other studios like Columbia and Disney are trying to foist P&S on us.

    It would be nice if someone could weigh in on the defective Stealing Beauty release, and whether anything will ever be done about it. Not having English subtitles on a film that is contingent on foreign language dialogue is very disappointing, especially with the otherwise wonderful presentation.

    I see Peter's name pop up all the time. Mind you it's always right after I finish reading Robert Crawford's posts [​IMG]. I imagine that Fox has not just kissed off the forum. There would be no reason in my mind for that to happen. However, I certainly know what it's like to be weighed down by additional duties and unable to post.

    I apologize if I ( inadvertently ) turned this into a feedback thread, with my prior post.

    I contacted Peter within the past few

    weeks. I wanted to let him know that he

    was missed, and that we wanted to make sure

    he was alright.

    At that time he was on the Oscar committee

    for Moulin Rouge and was very busy.

    I am certain that Peter will be checking

    back here in the near future.

    Crawdaddy,
    If that certain individual is still lurking and reading the forum, I'd just like to mention two titles that were brought up in the past and would make an ideal DVD double feature- THE LODGER and HANGOVER SQUARE. [​IMG]

    Well, in case he's lurking. I would be delighted to get an update on Office Space SE and a corrected version of Stealing Beauty. No response necessary, but please just put them on a release list for image-entertainment.
    I appreciate his past support and purchased "Say Anything" and that piece of trash [​IMG] "Zardoz" based on his feedback here.
