Not sure if it a custom to ask for reviews here and if it works but I would love to see a review of this movie; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Repo!_The_Genetic_Opera

I haven't even seen it myself yet (just ordered at thehut.com for ~€9,-) but the movie is quite... unique.

Badside is it features Paris Hilton (not sure how big of a role), upside is it features Anthony Stewart Head.

Trailer; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MzgpU25C6fg

Has there been any problems with the BR copy of G Force? I rented this movie from netflix and when I loaded it in my playstation 3 it didn't play. The PL3 didn't even recognize that the movie was even loaded. I have had no problems with anyother movies.

As odd as it may seem you might have to update your PS3 firmware. See if that works.

I had the same issue with my panasonic BD60 but after a FW update it played.

I have seen it. It tried a bit too hard to be the new Rocky Horror. It was interesting to say the least....A one time watcher for me..However, I could see some people really getting into it.

Enjoy!

Thanks! And to you as well!

Ralph,

Any luck landing a copy of "District 9" to view yet?

This was my Number 2 Favorite film of the year (Star Trek was No. 1), and you might be the only reviewer I read on a regular basis who hasn't seen it.

(I think you're a$$ is going to be kicked by it, just as mine was...)

I've been waiting for a review of the Hurt Locker to pop up, but i'm surprised it has not. Did they not send a copy to be reviewed? Just curious.

Greetings,

I would have to check to see which studio it heralds from. I don't believe it is a title I am covering.


Sorry.

Regards,

It's no big deal, I was just surprised that it never popped up since its received a lot of great reviews. BTW, the back of my blu ray says it's from Summit Entertainment.

Summit is a difficult studio to get review material from (at least I've never had any luck).
post #162 of 463
Buy the titel and send it to mr Potts.

How odd? The Fedex lady just dropped off my BD of the Hurt Locker, on initial inspection I read that the audio is DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0! There is a DD 5.1 though. I find this kind of Bass-akward to say the least.

On the back of my copy there is a comma between the DTS-HD Master Audio and the English 2.0 Dolby Surround so I would assume that the Master is in 5.1. There was full surround when I watched it.

Your Right! Damn old eyes! I am glad my ears are better I plan on watching tonight.

I recently picked up the Blu-ray + DVD + digital copy edition of Up. For someone dipping his toe into high-def, are there other recommended Blu-ray titles that also come with a DVD?
post #167 of 463
Hey Ralph/Lee ... any chance you'll be reviewing "Triangle" soon? I just saw it and was surprised how much I enjoyed it, even though I had to seek out Internet discussion threads after to see how much I figured out (most of it) and what I was missing (many, varied opinions).

Thanks, Mike

You are in luck. Many new titles are coming out now including the dvd. Off the top of my head most are kids movies that I remember. Monsters Vs Aliens, NOTM 2, Bolt, Monsters Inc, G-force. Pretty much anything Disney, Pixar and Dreamworks...
post #169 of 463
I wonder, is that any blu-ray review for "Drag me to hell"? I can't find it in this forum.
post #170 of 463
A few reviews that I would really like to see are;


300
Cast Away
The Last Samurai

Have these not been done or might I have missed them?

Greetings,

These are discs that I haven't covered here on AVS. I do own them but my review schedule is busy which precludes me from reviewing titles that are coming new to Blu-ray.

Sorry about that.

It arrived yesterday. I will get it up over the weekend..

Thanks Ralph.

Always have been a fan of your reviews. Your Video and Audio ratings are spot on with what I see and hear as well. Plus we have similar set ups on the LFE front with the PB13.

I'm looking forward to It. From what I've read elsewhere I bet you'll give it pretty high marks.

For sure looking forward to Ralphs review

As much as I enjoy Ralph's reviews, I have a minor quibble with his reluctance to separate his writing into nice sized paragraphs. His "My Take" on AVATAR has 36 lines before a break.

This, to me, is too tightly packed and in need of an editor.

Good point! I will take that into consideration. Thanks.
