Re: 10th Annual Drive-in/Exploitation/B-movie Challenge. April 1-30, 2019

Don't. I saw it back in '82 and had the exact same opinion. Still do. It was, and is, a half-baked family "horror" movie.

Re: Blu-ray and DVD sales - We're number 2, but we try harder

Your purchases are not safe on Amazon's servers.

Re: The 8th Annual DVDTalk Action/Adventure/Crime/Mystery Discussion Thread March 2019

I finished by watching S7 of Game of Thrones. I had a few other movies I'd wanted to get in but they just didn't make it. Most qualify for other challenges so it's not a big deal...

I had a good...

Re: The 8th Annual DVDTalk Action/Adventure/Crime/Mystery Discussion Thread March 2019

After decades of putting it off I finally saw The French Connection this afternoon. I don't get why this is supposed to be a "good" movie, much less a Best Picture Oscar winner (but I think that...

Re: The 8th Annual DVDTalk Action/Adventure/Crime/Mystery Discussion Thread March 2019

I watched another episode of that failed 1977 winter replacement SF series: The Fantastic Journey (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0075503/?ref_=nv_sr_1). This time the "pilot" episode. It was much...

Re: Big Lots Blu-rays

I've looked a couple of times here - see lots of the Resident Evil steelbook (not interested - have them already and it's nothing "special"). I did find *one* copy of The Mummy steelbook and...

Re: Warner Archive Sale - 4 for $44 + Free Shipping

I, too, passed this time out. I'd *just* purchased The Sea Hawk and The Cyclops from deepdiscount thinking they'd not be part of a 4/$44 sale for months. While there are others I'd have picked up...

Most artists on the major labels have never been able to make a living off just album sales. By the time all the accounting is done there's very little left. Albums and singles have always been...

Re: WTB Or Trade: Peter Gunn S01 Disc #3

Have you tried contacting Shout!/Timeless? Worst case is they say "no."

FWIW - S1 is still in print and ~$20 (or less for used) at Amazon. It's also at Deepdiscount...

Re: Industry Rant

Exactly! I'm happy to say the one store here never does such shady pricing. No matter how "hot" a book may be they charge cover price minus a 15% discount. Everyone gets that discount, file or...

Re: 10th Annual Drive-in/Exploitation/B-movie Challenge.

I'd guess it's all part of the site "upgrade." You'll also see some other oddities with the "Standard Editor..." when you quote a post or don't do a page refresh before editing an existing post. ...

Re: The Neverending Watch The Movies You Should Have Already Seen Challenge

This one sounds like fun...

Captains of the Clouds was kind of "meh." It's rather predictable and cliche' with Cagney playing a very unlikable character. He cheats, steals jobs by undercutting...

Re: The 8th Annual DVDTalk Action/Adventure/Crime/Mystery Discussion Thread March 2019

I made it through S3 of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. - whew! - and started S4. S4 brings a return to form with more serious spy episodes. It's quite welcome after the humor/camp of S3. Had S3 been a...

Re: The Neverending Watch The Movies You Should Have Already Seen Challenge

Edge of Tomorrow - Alien invaders + Tom Cruise + Groudhog Day. A surprisingly good mix. Enjoy!

It's a rare James Stewart film I do not like. I liked The Naked Spur. Howard Kemp (Stewart) is a...

Re: The 8th Annual DVDTalk Action/Adventure/Crime/Mystery Discussion Thread March 2019

I finished S1 of Hart to Hart. While I enjoyed the season I've also decided this is one that doesn't lend itself well to binging as the episodes all have a kind of sameness to them. I'll likely be...

Re: The 8th Annual DVDTalk Action/Adventure/Crime/Mystery Discussion Thread March 2019

I finished S6 of GoT. I always forget stuff and just how good even the "lesser" seasons of that series are!

I started more Hart to Hart after GoT (want to hold off on S7 for another week or so)...

Re: The Neverending Watch The Movies You Should Have Already Seen Challenge

For a change I've selected a newer movie for you. :)

Torrid Zone was lots of fun. It's full of little zingers and one-liners and also had lots of stars and character actors. If you've watched...
