Re: Game of Thrones (S8E06) -- 79 minute Series Finale -- “The Iron Throne” -- 5/19/19

I don't have HBO anything, but I am sure the ending is fine. How could the writers, producers, etc. ruin the ending of the best mini series, to date, ever? I am looking forward to this December...

re: Game of Thrones on Ultra HD Blu-ray (S1: 6/5/18; S8: 12/3/19)

Yeah, The Sopranos is a PITA to handle, but since I only watch it once ever 10 years, it is okay. Beats the hell out of just strapping together the individual series in a single box.

re: Game of Thrones on Ultra HD Blu-ray (S1: 6/5/18; S8: 12/3/19)

I'd like to know what is planned when the entire series is packaged together. As of now the individual series are singles, boxed together as a 'set'. Hopefully they will put together an impressive...

Re: Bohemian Rhapsody (2018, D: Singer or Fletcher) S: Rami Malek -- Queen biopic

Best thing on the Blu-Ray disk was in the bonus section. The complete Live-Aid Reenactment.

Re: What's the point of a Blu Ray steelbook?

Hey this is an old thread. I only just heard about steelbook. Considering how often I look at this website, it is no wonder that I am 5+ years behind the times.

Re: What's the point of a Blu Ray steelbook?

Steelbook of The Shining, showed up today. Wow!

Re: Last DVD you watched?

I had to order the Blu-ray version of The Shining. To great a film to not have a watchable version in the collection. For the most part, most DVDs look fine on the set, but Kubrick didn't seem to...

Re: Last DVD you watched?

I tried to watch The Shining last night. I've owned this DVD for a long long time, and last watched it about 5 years ago on a 27" tube TV. Last night on my 4K set with the Blu-ray player --...

Re: Major Upgrades

I don't want to be tempted. :D

I once owned a 46" LG HDTV and an early Blu-ray player, and felt that the DVDs looked fine on the set, no reason to upgrade. The 4K with the upscaling Blu-ray...

Re: How Many DVDs?

I bought into the Alias Series as it was nearing completion. It got to stupid for words and sold off the lot before I got 1/2 way thru it. Nearly the same with 24. How many times is it even...

How Many DVDs?

I now buy maybe 1 film a year, and am watching favorites I bought 10 years ago. Have maybe 300 films.

Been awhile since I've been on this forum, and am wondering how crazy some of you still are.

Re: Time for a new projector

Yes, good find, but a little late for me. I'm convinced that this entire unit will be replaced (hopefully more then a year from now) with a 1080p projector and probably the MitsuHC3800.

Re: Time for a new projector

How do you do that? Externally/Internally there is no counter display. I've never come across a remote setting that will display such information to the screen.

Re: Time for a new projector

Found out how to reset the bulb time counter. So now the annoying initial warning is no longer an annoyance. I can now relax and forget as "ignorance is bliss".

On Ebay is a HC7000U with extra...

Re: Time for a new projector

And now that you have pointed me the right direction, I see that one has a bulb life of 5000 hours. Things are improving drastically. I now understand that I need to think about all this, as there...

Re: Time for a new projector

Thanks! And right you are -- Component!!! I've been very very happy with the 760p, and the bulb cost is about $300+ (ouch!). Problem is, in an hour of online searching (for Mitubishi) it looks as...

My Mitsubishi HC3000 is nearing 3 years old and I'm getting a warning signal that lamp replacement time is fast approaching.

Re: If you had to buy just ONE Jim Carrey DVD, which would it be?

For the most part I find Carrey one dimensional, and he gets old fast. I do watch regularly "The Mask", and "Fun with Dick and Jane", because I love Teo Leone.

Re: What year did you start collecting?

1999, and now have about 300 films. I could easily get rid of 1/2 of them. I now just toss the junk when something comes along and there is no longer any shelf space.

Re: What DVDs are you getting on 02.23.2010...?

Have you seen the film? It didn't fullfil its promising and hillarious previews. Actually it was awful.
