    Movies | TV Shows | Hollywood
    So, what films (DVDs/BDs) do you turn to just for the "Eye Candy" factor? Movies you may not even like, so long as they show off that new display or just WOW you for whatever reason. Here's a few of mine... The Fifth Element What Dreams May Come Ghost in the Shell Coco Aeon Flux A.I. Artificial...
  2. Five Modern Horror Films That Will Rock Your Home Theater System

    Home Theater, Audio and Video News
    The horror genre is a tough one to get right, but that doesn't mean it's impossible to crack. The best films are able to suspend belief and inject cringe worthy fear and anticipation into the most grounded of souls. Over the years I’ve added quite a few horror titles to my Blu-ray collection...

  5. Walt Disney Animation Studios Short Films

    AV Home Theater
    In honor of tonight's super bowl and audio video enthusiasts. Netflix has an animated short film that's only around 6 minutes long about Goofy trying to set up his home theater and it's hilarious. There are several short films. Watch the chapter 23:50 one. Sent from my SM-G900P using Tapatalk

  12. Mumblecore films

    Movies | TV Shows | Hollywood
    So I was wondering what you guys think about "mumblecore" films. I never knew this indie sub-genre existed until I saw a couple of indie films on Netflix. It seems like low-budget, DIY movie-making, relying heavily on actors and dialogue. The two films I've seen are Safety Not Guaranteed and...

  16. Who is consistantly in the best films?

    Movies | TV Shows | Hollywood
    Curious on your thoughts as to who is always in the best films? Not necessarily the big block buster or the best actor/actress. Who makes a film good, who is the most consistent actor/actress? Not necessarily the Oscar winner or nominee but, who makes the film better just by being in it? My...

  18. Today's 3D films

    Movies | TV Shows | Hollywood
    Saw my first 3D film in a theater in 27 years (Friday the 13 part 3 was the last one). Today it was G-Force. Wow,... 3D has come a long way. The polarized aviator style glasses are many times better than the old cardboard red/green lens glasses. Still don't think it's ready for prime time...
  19. Lost Films of Laurel and Hardy Volume 1 standard DVD review

    Movies | TV Shows | Hollywood
    As a marketing gimmick using the term 'lost film' or 'restored' helps sell the units in the markeplace. However, as a historian I'll have to state up front that the movies contained in the 9 volume DVD set were never lost. As I discussed previously, Hal Roach was a great comedy producer and...
