^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Arachnophobia

This has been a favorite of mine for years and I was able to pick it up recently at a very good price. This is the *Remastered* release (the first release was horrible on all counts...

The Quiet Ones

I'll say it from the outset...this one will be a HARD CALL due to the mixed bag of digital and stock film used.

Regarding the *digital* shots, they were, for the most part, quite...

Thanks for the excellent review! I don't suppose you'd want to give the 2D version a viewing? I would love to hear your impressions on that and what your placement recommendation would be.

Now I'm really baffled! Your "loves" should have caused you to "like" Need For Speed. This is an enigma and may not ever be solved! :D
