While I'm sure others have seen this Swedish masterpiece already, I was a bit late and caught it last weekend at a local theatre here in Toronto. It was really, really good. I'm now seeing that...

Toddly,

I've mentioned this one before, and it's on sale on Amazon Canada. Not a flawless film, but it's good, and I really enjoyed it. I saw it at the TIFF the same day CACHE and SFLV had...

The films at the TIFF this year have been very underwhelming. I usually get the day pass and see somewhere between 20-25 films a year, this year it was hard for me to find 5. I don't think I'm even...

Don't do it. The only thing the PS3 has done for my life is caused me to play video games again after taking a 10 year break from that form of entertainment. When MG4 came out I picked it up trying...

If VOD brings in 3 times the margins that DVD rental does, I would imagine Warner would prefer to move away from both DVD AND BD. I don't see how this is "great news" for BD. They've clearly stated...

While I respect your opinion, to me MP3 audio is clearly inferior to CD and especially LP. It's VERY easy for me to tell the difference, more so then some HD vs Upconverted signals, but that's me. ...

Kino is one of the reasons I had to import SD-DVD. They've fucked up many releases. I wouldn't be suprised if they released BD titles with burnt in / forced subs...lol

Eye Candy is the least of my worries. I actually don't own a single BD disc even though I've had a ps3 for a year. I don't own a game either, so it's really just a box taking up space (I got it for...

From a consumer standpoint outside of ripping people off, I don't see a reason to raise the cost of a BD Criterion. The reason Criterion DVD's look better then most SD dvd's is the fact they've...

The PS3 is great except for the fact it won't play PAL and isn't region free. I'm hoping someone (OPPO maybe) produces a player for people who watch DVD's. I know the PS3 does a lot of things, but...

So you went into an arthouse film expecting a 3 act script, and Haneke's the problem? lol The last thing we need or expect from Haneke is a cookie cutter mentality.

Yes, but when the add-on was introduced at $199 there wasn't an HD player below $300 was there? Sounds kind of like the current BD situation doesn't it? The $99 players came long after the 360...

There are something like 18 million 360's sold worldwide. In theory that would allow 18 million people to get "Blu" compatible for around $200 if they wanted to. Unless I've missed something,...

If there are people out there really buying PS3's primarily as a Blu Ray player, then this move makes sense as it'll take away some potential sales. I own a PS3, and I'll sell it in a heartbeat if I...
