I have a Panasonic 65VT50. How does one figure out its value? Btw, it may not be the later model Panasonics, but it continues to be a great performer for my blue rays (and cable TV)

Seems to make perfect sense. After all, Apple is the leader in castrated hardware and they are doing great business. (sarcastic but sadly true)

I just caught the movie on Vudu and I'll say it was definitely worth the watch (as I happen to like off beat movies). D.R. certainly did well for himself as did the rest of the cast.

Well its nice to see a varied forum of expression here about the movie, or lack of movie. I'll just sit back and watch Team America in the meanwhile and laugh at his daddy being lambasted.
