I haven't seen the Exorcist doc., but another vote for Mothman here. I thought it was excellent.

Mothman was a decent flick. If you like supernatural kinda movies and havent seen it, id definately go for that over some a&e thing. If you like excorcism, sixth sense type of movies, you will like it.

2 features for $13.97? I'd go with that.

ditto. Mothman was pretty good. I don't think it was bad, but it wasn't great. I don't even like Richard Gere at all, but I found it an enjoyable flick.

I'll have a full review of the uncut edition up as soon as I can; from what I understand, I should be receiving this as an early holiday gift (my pre-press copy from the studio was snubbed by another publication).

Why was that? Was the pre-press release different in some way than the final release? If that was the case than good for them. I hate when reviews are done that aren't of the final release since compression amounts can change if extras are added for the final release thus changing the AV quality.

By the way are you ever going to change your sig to list the actual model number of your Mits TV?

No, it was not different from what the public is going to see; it's just that another editor had higher dibs on the pre-press copy and launch at the conference I attended which included folks from Universal, Fox, MGM and DreamWorks, and some from Paramount.

Allright, so I watch the movie last night (which I liked), and the very first shot (a fade-in to white after you hear her scream) has one of the ugliest transfer glitches...I don't even know what to call it. A big digital blob in the middle of the screen for a second or so - someone else tell me they see it.

Inexcusable for a transfer these days!

Can't quote on Mothman Prophecies because I never saw it, as I'm not a big Richard Gere fan at all. But I saw the A&E doc., and I wasn't very impressed with it at all. But for $13.97 for 2 flicks, I'd go for the Emily Rose/Mothman one anyway, if I had a choice of one or the other in this case.

I vote for the one with Mothman. It's got that feeling of dread atmosphere. Gere is the "star", but Laura Linney and Will Patton are quite good in it too.

Not surprising actually after a few threads with him got locked when they got out of line. Some of us searched him on Google and found that he's been banned from most HT discussion forums. I see most of his old posts on here have been deleted otherwise I'd point you to them to see his argumentative ways. If I had to make a guess though, I bet it was for posting his DVD reviews after being asked not to make them look like official DVDTalk reviews.

There's 1 in every crowd I guess?

I can't say I'm surprised. Chip, you always showed much more restraint than I did in his threads in HT discussion

I have been ignoring him since the receiver thread got my blood boiling and didn't even know he was posting again. Oh, well.
