The MGM "Robocop" has stronger extras, though not by a ton; the old one's audio commentary was a little better. I prefer the transfer on the Criterion version, however. It may be non-anamorphic,...

Why? She's put out four albums, each of which has sold at least two million copies. Two of them sold more than 10 million copies, or came close - not sure if "Oops" passed 10m. If the Eagles could...

Wrong. Elton's first album came out in 1969 - he had SEVEN albums out by the time he put out his first greatest hits, and that doesn't include a live release AND a soundtrack! (Plus one of the...

Oh, he'll get plenty of takers - it won't be tough to unload any of the discs on its own. It sounds weird, but I'm sure there are lots of folks who only like "Jedi"...

I DEFINITELY don't think my reviews have gone downhill - for better or for worse, they're the same as they always were! I mean, if someone never liked them, that'd be fine, but I really don't think...

Okay, I'll bite - what are we doing wrong? If you mean the new release updates used to be better, you're right - our old webmaster had more time to devote to that (and more interest) than our...

You're correct that many writers review Madonna and not the film. So many folks seem to have a deep hatred of the woman that it totally colors their opinions of her work.

On the other hand, I...

I REALLY don't like the new packaging. Thinner? Yes. Crummier? Yes. The plastic trays detach from the backing too easily, and one of them ALREADY got cracked. (I treat my DVDs gently, so this...

I thought the SB <I>Heavy Metal</I> seemed to offer a pretty substantial picture improvement, and the DTS was a little better than the DD. The loss of the extras is too bad, though, as the original...

I'm probably the biggest Bowie fan you'll find among DVD reviewers, and I generally liked the collection. It's a great set of material undone only somewhat by erratic visual quality. Still, Bowie's...

Anyone used this rental by mail firm? They're a little cheaper than Netflix, and since I only want to check out a few titles - all of which they allegedly have - I'm tempted to give them a shot. ...

As I note in my review (http://www.dvdmg.com/etgiftset.shtml), <I>ET</I> doesn't rock me like it did in the past, but that's mostly because I've seen it MANY times. It still moves me, though, and I...

I'm glad you mentioned that - my case snapped and I thought I caused it! (Of course, technically I DID - if I hadn't opened it, the thing wouldn't have broken!;)
