The PS3 interface has changed a few times in the past due to HTML5 or some such techno babble. I recall one I got served up looking like the one in this article.

"Under the new format, which began rolling out Wednesday..."
I still have the old interface here in PA. I don't really care what it looks like. I just hope the user profiles will work on my Roku streamers.

I live in the area (Woodside; well, for now, am in the process of moving) and just got my new interface tonight; I had a power out so had to sign in again so maybe that made a difference on my ps3. I have a complaint, it only gives a choice to resume watching something instead of starting it over like I often do when I just start something to check it out for later consideration....first impression of the new interface, aside from the complaint, is meh...big deal.

I got the new interface on my TiVo Roamio and PS3 today and wrote up my impressions of it and posted them in another thread, here.

Thanks for the detailed writeup, I'll have to check tonight and see if it's showed up on my Roamio Basic. These UI updates come via Internet right? No connection to TiVo needed?

Correct. I believe that it checks for and brings down available updates to the HTML5 code every time it starts up. When I started the player on my Roamio I got the selection of defined Profiles and when I'd selected on it showed me a once-only "Welcome to the new Netflix UI" screen (I'm sure it was worded differently).

I do believe that TiVo requires connection to the TiVo service to display the option to start Netflix. I rebooted my TiVo this morning (once again when it switched to after it being idle overnight it had lost its HDMI connection and had to be rebooted rolleyes.gif). After I rebooted it couldn't contact TiVo service for a while and didn't give me the option of starting Netflix or any other online service.

"Compulsion" with Heather Graham and Carrie-Ann Moss is a decent dark comedy thriller. Don't watch it on an empty stomach though. Also "Killing Season" with Robert DiNero and John Travolta is pretty good too. Both of these films seem to be adaptations from stage plays.

"Killing Season" is worth a watch .. I'm not a big Travolta fan, but it's a decent film, none the less ..

That film was released for the theater in June and then on Blu-Ray in August. Obviously, it didn't fair well at the box office.

They didn't give it much play. IMDb says that it opened in 12 theaters on July 14th, took in $23,713 total gross and apparently closed before the following weekend.

I saw Killing Season last night, and it was OK. I'm glad I didn't pay to see it though.

"Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries" looks absolutely amazing in SuperHD. It was shot on a Sony CineAlta 9000 and the production values are through the roof. It's set in 1920's Melbourne and the sets, cars (Miss Fisher drives a Hispano-Suiza), costumes, scenery and Miss Fisher herself make for one huge bowl of eye candy. Great stuff. Too bad it's not in 5.1.

"Scenic Route" with Josh Duhamel is quite good and popular for good reason. Well worth a watch.

I agree, BUT I'm confused about the ending. If you saw it, you know what I'm talking about.

According to the late Paul Newman, who produced and directed some of his own movies, the audience needs to be left with something to think about in order for a film to succeed, at least artistically.

Saw a nice drama coming of age film called Dog Pound. I should add it is "dark."
