That is always what happens if you use PayPal.

they have always waited to charge me... AND they took back an open return after I received the newest "my name is nobody" release. the transfer was so bad, I had to return it... I had no problems.

I was wondering if their policy was different for credit cards. It appears that it is different, thanks.

The Train blu ray has shipped early ! It was scheduled for June 10th release and is shipping as of June 4th. if you have one on order you should see it soon.

will order BOTH the train and heaven knows me allison... those two movies are both excellent!

seeing Lancaster falling face first into the camera with a broken leg while running at nearly full steam is worth the price of admission.

They've finally come to their senses, The Blob will be a limited edition set increased to 5000 units. I guess it was not an option to reprint Fright Night for another couple thousand units.

I did a double take there. 1988! I've never seen it.

Criterion has the 1958 version.

Personally, I find the 1988 Blob pretty bad. Twilight Time will likely sell out their 5000 units but most of its pleasure can be derived from the '80s nostalgia trip.

Usually I do not like remakes but I found this one to be surprisingly good when I watched it many years ago, assuming I am not mistaking it for a different Blob remake.

It did have some moments of real promise, but a few things kept in squarely in the B-movie category.

Listen up, studios! Just say "NO" to DNR and EE!!

Watched Mr Allison tonight. There's no super-sharp images there but film grain is intact and color/contrast is excellent. Appears to be true to the original film elements. Still a great film too.
