Greetings,


The remainder of this week I hope to post Pinocchio, Australia, Cadillac Records and The French Connection II. It may depend on what else arrives in the meantime but that is the plan.



Cheers,

So I'll start. What ever happened to the Futurama review? Did the disc not arrive?

Greetings,


It arrived late (post street). If interest is high I will try to get to it this weekend. When titles arrive post street it creates a backlog for titles that are coming up the following week. Fox is notorious for titles arriving either very close to or beyond street date. Case and point being Austrailia which streeted yesterday and arrived this morning. This isn't always the case but unfortunately it is more often than not.


I cover as many as possible and try to ensure that new releases are consistently reviewed.


FYI - These titles from Fox never arrived:


The Passion of the Christ

Raging Bull

Donnie Darko


Lionsgate:


W.

Greetings,


Seggers, I can't help but detect a hint of sarcasm in your post (s) is it intentional?


In response to your question here is what is coming up in the next week or so (meaning that I currently have them):


Australia

Transporter 3

Cadillac Records

Let the right one in

French Connection II

Futurama: into the wild green yonder

A mighty heart (expect review week of 3/17)

The kite runner (expect review week of 3/17)

Things we lost in the fire (expect review week of 3/17)


Here are a few others that are slated for this month:


Seven pounds

Slumdog millionare

Marley and me

James Bond Collection Vol. 3

Never say never again

Bolt

The Robe

Watchmen: Tales of the black freighter and under the hood

The Princess Bride

Quantum of solace


There will be more and I will post back as I receive them. Some titles are hit and miss but most should arrive.


Cheers,

No sarcasm in the post. It was British in the post. I was wondering what films you were enjoying for March release.


Plus I was hoping to get some others in here and start off the thread.

Whoa!
That's quite a list you've got there Ralph. Sounds like this is going to take a few popcorn bags.

Ralph.....quick question. Are you aware of any BDs that are full frame?


Reason for asking, I'm placing a pre order for Point Of No Return on BD at Deep Discount DVD. The specs say 1.33 full frame. Is this right? Or is it just a misprint.


I'm assuming these are all region 1 disks, also.


Thanks!

By full frame I assume that you mean pan and scan to 1.33:1 from a widescreen original aspect ratio and the answer is not that I am aware of. I would say that is a misprint.

Hi Ralph,


I don't see it mentioned anywhere, but about a review of the excellent documentary

style of the blu-ray titled "BARAKA".

I am surprised, to say the least, to haven't read a review yet of this "FIRST" in the history of Blu-Ray, from yourself.


Regards,


________
