I recently opened a copy of Speed for my “how to handle LDs” video. Amazingly I never owned this but I did see it in the theater so maybe I’ll watch it again soon. Its AC-3 and I always give those a shot. I bought it to see if the bag was all mangled in there from the factory and...I’ll let you guess.

If memory serves me all the non Japanese LD issues for SPEED were pressed in Japan by KURARAY in most cases (including the UK PAL release but not the French issues which were pressed by DADC Austria & MPO in France) with final packing done in the US or UK so inner bag will most likely be mashed in most cases?

Worth a watch again if not viewed in a while - an easy way to kill a couple of hours.

I’m extremely slow at doing these things. All I can say is that principle photography is done.

OK I'm a little late but have been watching a lot of DVDs recently and a few LDs ready to watch.
Raising Arazona
Hellraiser
Tai Chi Master as per zeta and gypsy.
Fist of Legend
Phantasm.

When it gets colder I'll be inside working and getting to LDs to watch again.
Received The Alamo and will be watching and hopefully do a review as I haven't done one in some time.
Who is a good photo uploaded now, I was using Photobucket but they are junk and would like something easy since I haven't done any reviews in quite some time.

Ok, well I ain't gonna develop long or I'll get pretty insulting (like this movie was to me).
Basically, this movie just destroys the original characters by, first, making them dumb as f**k; woody just plainly make the infiltration to save the fork fail by running like an idiot in plain site, but in toy 3 managed to evade the "prison" twice, and buzz getting full retard by making decision only based on his toy voice.
They also changed the personalities of other characters as well, like since when bonnie's doll is the leader of the toys and make woody look like a fool. And bo is now just a plain b**ch, they also totally changed the toy itself, I mean she was supposed to be all solid porcelain, and now she have changeable clothes like a f***ing barbie (btw, wtf is wrong with them ? they also gave her elastigirl's a** and I find that over sexualized her).

And the ending... oh my god, woody turning his back on everyone just to be with bo is just wrong, he would never do that... It just ruins the beautiful ending we had in the third.
Oh yeah, I forgot about the "villain" of the movie (this tells you everything already), just blend and uninteresting, and woody ruining himself to give her the voice box...argh !

I think a lot of the s**t this movie have can be explained with Lasseter getting fired, Disney used the opportunity to certainly gain full control over pixar's "artistic" direction. This movie just plainly sweats the feminism propaganda agenda they are pushing with everything they are touching, albeit, a lot more subtle than they usually do.

To conclude, this movie is just a complete garbage that s**ts all over what the previous ones have made. This movie was really atrocious to watch...

Watched Twister On LD.
Had not seen for many many years.
I think it holds up quite good. I groaned a few times during some scenes but still think its solid.
Watched the CAV edition and it impressed me Picture wise and the audio was good, volumed ramped up dramatically at times. :thumbup:

I was right up there with you until all the gamer gate stuff plopped out.

You heard it here folks, it isn’t unchecked greed that’s causing Disney to eat the rest of showbiz, it’s actually feminism. Because feminism is a classic motivator of trillion dollar corporations. It’s the women who donate the $200M needed to make this movie and then they just roll it all into another more feminist sequel. I see it now. Makes perfect sense. Women have been pulling the strings on world events for millennia and now even the flawless genius of a fat pervert computer nerd like John Lasseter has been silenced. We’re basically screwed as a society now.

RELATED: Did anyone buy any of those anime LDs on eBay that came from the Pixar library? I almost did but then I remember I hate almost all of those movies. I think the On Your Mark disc (pulled from box) is still up.

I watched Hotel Mumbai last night. I thought it was fantastic. It showed how religious zeal can drive people to doing such terrible things. These people took their religion very seriouly and clearly acted in its name because they believed it was OK to kill infidels. It had nothing to do with them being mentally ill. They clearly knew what they were doing. At times it was very difficult to watch this film. There was a scene where they shot a receptionist who at gunpoint had to call the guests in their rooms telling them that it is safe to come outside so that they can be shot. The film showed how these terrorist groups were and still are supported by parts of Pakistan's intelligence agency. I also thought that the performances of all actors were excellent. I hadn't seen such a suspense-packed for quite some time. Strongly recommended.

Of course it's completely ridicilous to think that it's intentional. But I do think there's some clueless hiring policies going on leading to this nonsense.

Disney is profiteering off feminism and girl power right now but that's also nothing new so ehhh. I did watch an interesting video on it awhile back that tackles why they are revising that but also why they are just completely ignoring the racial issues in modern remakes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xU1ffHa47YY

Worth a watch imo.

Oh, it’s intentional for sure. They’re commodifying dissent though, nothing else. They are following trends like they always do. They’re not in any way interested in affecting social change so don’t worry.
