Haven't seen Playtime but I doubt it's better then the mediocre Rock.
Well, I don't consider the Rock mediocre, but if you think the Rock is mediocre, what leads you to believe that Playtime would be even worse?
Judging by the two other Tati films I've seen The Rock is definatly the funnier comedy.
Playtime wins. Next, Time Bandits vs. Rashomon
Rashomon You should upgrade to the Divimax Time Bandits George. A big leap in picture quality.
Rashomon - Sorry, little guys.
What exactly is this? At first I thought you were talking about that high def tape based stuff (I will NEVER go back to tape, no matter how good the initial quality), but a website I looked at looks like it's a dvd, but describe the transfer as high def. This confuses me, since a standard dvd doesn't provide high def (or if it can, then why are we waiting for HD-DVD?). So what's the deal. Is the high def a typo, or the dvd (as opposed to tape) a typo?
Rashomon - but Bandits is more fun!
It's a DVD George. I have the same reservations about tape-based formats (never again says I ). Their Marketing dept is a little liberal in the use of the term High - Def. The transfer is taken from a high def master is all. What it boils down to is a big improvement in A/V quality over the Criterion, along with some nice extras.
Rashomon - Walter.
Rashomon - I was only able to finish Time Bandits with judicious use of the fast forward button.
Your mistake, George! I have had my JVC 30k for a year now and haven't had a single issue. Movies in HD are a huge improvement over DVD's on a 123 inch screen. Considering the JVC deck can be had for around $400.00, it was a real no brainer for me, and will hold me over until HD-DVD comes out. Rashomon (easily)
