I remember Thor being so washed out on my old set I need to revisit that one and The Descent.post #4623 of 94574/7/13 at 11:34ampost #4624 of 94574/7/13 at 1:48pmpost #4625 of 94574/7/13 at 2:09pmpost #4626 of 94574/8/13 at 4:28ampost #4627 of 94574/8/13 at 6:58amThread Starterpost #4628 of 94574/8/13 at 7:00amQuote:
Speaking of which, if you buy one of 20 select blu-rays at Best Buy, you'll get up to $8 toward the purchase of one admission to "Oblivion." One of the select blurays is *drum roll please* Flash Gordon for $11.99.post #4629 of 94574/8/13 at 7:23ampost #4630 of 94574/8/13 at 8:47amQuote:
And the GOAT is ????
Awesome purchase Darth! HUGE plasma fan here, although 3D is of no interest to me. I'll likely be in the market for a new plasma soon as well (most likely a Panny). For some reason, my father absolutely refuses to upgrade to a flat-panel tv even though my mother has been ready ever since she first saw HD at my house (like a million yrs ago). Its almost like he is being stubborn and staying old school just for the sake of doing it. So, for Christmas this year, I'm giving my mother one of my plasmas and getting a new one. I don't think he can refuse a gift that isn't even given to him.post #4631 of 94574/8/13 at 9:19amQuote:Originally Posted by ApolloCreed

Yeah the 3D was not a selling point nor the apps that are native. I do see some use for browsing DLNA server however. We'll see.
And yes WHAT IS GOAT?post #4632 of 94574/8/13 at 9:29ampost #4633 of 94574/8/13 at 9:32ampost #4634 of 94574/8/13 at 10:13ampost #4635 of 94574/8/13 at 10:15amThread Starterpost #4636 of 94574/8/13 at 10:42ampost #4637 of 94574/8/13 at 10:50ampost #4638 of 94574/8/13 at 11:04amThread Starterpost #4639 of 94574/8/13 at 11:09amQuote:
That dude is awesome and I even got a chance to meet him before I moved from CA. Love all his work and the Computer Controlled mixes were my favorite or any of his live stuff.
It is sad these days kids are not familiar with him or other guys electronic music from that era.post #4640 of 94574/8/13 at 11:40ampost #4641 of 94574/8/13 at 2:31pmpost #4642 of 94574/8/13 at 2:41pmQuote:
Stake Land is a good flick. Bought the blu-ray for Horror Fest a couple years ago. Little Shop of Horrors on the other hand was pretty laughable. I actually tried to watch it for this year's challenge but ended up shutting it off after about 40 minutes. I planned to finish it at some point, but just couldn't muster up the courage. Not even a Jack Nicholson cameo could save that flick.post #4643 of 94574/8/13 at 2:43pmpost #4644 of 94574/9/13 at 1:59pmpost #4645 of 94574/9/13 at 2:42pmpost #4646 of 94574/9/13 at 3:46pmQuote:
That or the best PG ghost/horror story, Poltergeist...we are talking about the 1978 John Carpenter classic Halloween right? What about Texas Chainsaw (1974) or Night of the Living Dead (1968) or The Thing (1982), The Exorcist?
I am probably forgetting some but those would be in my GOAT list.
Edit: Just checked Imdb.com to make sure Poltergeist was PG rated and not PG-13. Come to find out the MPAA re-rated it to R !

House of 1000 Corpses
Very hard decisions and I would have a good handfull of alternatives such as:
I Saw The Devil
The Thing (1982)
30 Days of Night
Insidepost #4649 of 94574/9/13 at 7:17pmWell, I can't name a top 5....because if I do, then I'll want to add a 6th and 7th and so on...........
I will say this though.
Although it may not make sense, The Shining is definitely the GOAT; however, its not necessarily my favorite. My favorite (as many of you know) is House of 1000 Corpses. Honorable mentions would include The Exorcist, The Descent, House of the Devil and countless others.post #4650 of 94574/10/13 at 4:32amI will add my top five, personal favs.
The Night of the Living Dead '68
The Thing 1982
The Blair Witch Project
My previous post were very close to these top 5 and these are other honorable mentions,
The Hills Have Eyes '06
The Shining, thanks apollo for reminding me!
Ones I need to see is, Thanks to Kenobi.
I saw the Devil
