Of course Criterion makes money. That's why they charge what they do. They know they are better off charging $30-40 a movie because they are worth it. Plus lowering the price by $15 doesn't make sense because the loss in margin wouldn't be offset by the amount of new buyers coming in at that price point.

Dead I can send you a Pioneer remote for shipping money if that would be cheaper than you trying to get one locally. Also if you already have a fancy Logitech remote that will work. I'm using a Logitech for the Proscan since it won't work with Pioneer remotes and I needed to be able to switch between analog and digital audio.

Btw you generally want to avoid sealed LDs if you are planning to watch the movie. Last time I bought a sealed movie off of a store here I asked the seller to open it and verify no damage or disc rot which they were happy to do.

I’d be way more concerned about learned the disc was cracked only after opening it. That has happened to me and it sucks. I think this is a much greater likelihood if you aren’t the sort to spend your money chasing Eraser or Dante’s Peak whatever (it seems most famous rotters are garbage films for some reason.) A shrink wrapped jacket can make a completely useless disc look wonderful.

I had this happen TWICE on my first two purchases of sealed LDs. It's not like I was even seeking out sealed ones either, it just so happened that they were the cheapest copies of both. I don't think the sellers could have known they were cracked of course.

Yeah he is right almost all remotes are compatible with all players as long as it is the same brand. Both Pioneer remotes I have work with all three Pioneer players I have. And neither remote directly matches any of the players. I got a cheap remote off ebay just to have one then got a nicer one from a user here for free.

I think it's more the fact that the face of the fandom has changed. Whatever people call themselves "anime fans" only watch whatever flavor of the month moe harem isekai garbage is the hot property right now. Either that or Dragonball Z or some other shounen that had the grace of actually being shown on Toonami back in the day. Instead, it's people like us who unironically enjoy obscure 70's giant robot anime who get made fun of.


But there is definitely a reason I don't go to any anime specific forums. On here and another forum I go to it's all grumpy middle aged/older guys like myself. We are all jaded, like old s**t and dislike many things about modern anime while being interested in maybe a couple new series each year. In fact on this other forum I recently posted a screenshot from the bar in one of the grumpy old men movies to describe us.

I think having best offer as an option per item is a great idea. Some could be more negotiable, others not.

He clearly can't handle being on this forum anymore, he's proven that. He finally gets through and just posts c**t a bunch instead of something normal. I do think it's a shame because he does still more or less have his wits about him and has good knowledge but he would rather not engage in discussion on this forum.

Well stated benmbe.

see compression artefacts. For 4:3 aspect ratio video laserdisc is perfect.

This and audio are why I prefer LD over DVD.

Nice to see you around confederate, been awhile.

My grandfather served in a ammo support company in the European theatre during WWII.
He said they lost about 40 of the 180 men in his company.

He punched a Sgt who was over KP because the cook threw a cleaver at a cat that slept with my grandfather for several weeks. The poor cat lost a hind leg from the incident and died shortly afterward.
He was demoted to pvt as punishment

He was in a foxhole when his intuition told him to move to another one. A few minutes later an artillery round landed right at his previous position. I would not be typing this had he stuck where he was.

He was off loading train cars during an air raid in France, when he swears someone or something pushed him causing him to lie prone as the rail car behind the one he was off loading exploded. He said he would not have survived if he had been upright.

Enjoyed reading about other members grandfather's so thought to share a bit.

The generation of U.S. WWII and Korean soldiers defined an era.

The word soldier in any language commands respect and instills fear.
For very obvious reasons.

Thanks for sharing.

My gramps was in WWII as well. At DDay. I never got to know him that well. All my pictures with him are from when I was quite young. He has been dead for awhile.

The Korean war is oft forgotten by many. I am friends with a 90 year old Korean war vet and he has some stories that's for sure.

Then why is it still called "down mixing"?
