The Avatar disc is not 3D anyway so who cares. If you didn't see it in 3D in the cinema, you missed the real Avatar experience forever.

Where is Nightmare on Elm Street Blu Ray ?? It came out a few weeks back but netflix only has date unknown .. BB has it now .. Boo

Read somewhere that Avatar will return to theaters in 3-D sometime in Aug.
Getting both Dr. Parnassus and Sherlock..looking forward to seeing both.

Alien sex in 3D is _so_ much better than in 2D, dude. What's with all these philistines who just don't understand how artsy that is, man? Plus that scene where all the Mohicans... I mean the Na'vi... are riding those eighten legged rhinos and clash with the evil white devils... I mean obviously American spacemarines... just in time to save Jake's best guy friend's life? Whoa brah, it totally 'sploded my head.

Do you people even watch movies or has the constant jacking off to internet porn rendered most of the western world braindead, only caring about the next hot fix of visual perfection? Avatar is the film equivalent of Sasha Gray, minus all of the erotic asphyxiation.

For fuck's sake, people ditched "An Education" to watch that awful steaming pile of James Cameron?

3D - just another "flash-in-the-pan" trend. It'll be dead in awhile. 3D sets will be an afterthought soon as well. Just another "gimmick" that won't last.

Geez, it's just a movie. Calm down. If you don't like it, nobody's going to make you watch it. Rent a cerebral French art film or something.

Welcome to the internet. Please enjoy your stay.

Avatar is the new standard for Blu-ray quality. It's stunning.

The Whiz

I'll be at Blockbuster when it opens at 10 tomorrow. "It's Complicated" was a fun watch, want to see it again. Not good enough to buy though, even WITH Meryl (the guys aren't too shabby either). Nancy Meyers' movies are pretty fluffy.

I bill on the 5th. May will be my first month of 1 out at a time w/Blu-ray access here on Streamflix. Until Blockbuster closes or unless they drop the new releases, I'll be getting most of my stuff through them.

The Whiz

First off, I think they're going to stop (if they haven't already) releasing 3D movies with the cheesy blue/red or green/red paper glasses. You can't reproduce 3D at home with that technology. 2nd, I don't see 3DTV ever being mainstream. As fun as it is to watch movies in Real3D, are people who've just recently upgraded to HD really going to go out and buy new TV's by the masses? I doubt it. You have to buy a special TV, special player...you have to wear glasses...I don't see people putting on glasses to watch TV every time...not to mention the fact that the glasses would get broke or lost constantly.

Not sure if 3D in theaters is a fad/gimmick right now or not. I lean toward yes, but every movie that comes out in 3D does big business. Maybe EVERYTHING being released in 3D these days will cause it to lose popularity.

You're amazing. Still haven't seen 'Avatar' myself, but i have an old VHS copy of 'Ferngully' at home, so...I'll just watch that instead.

Just received and watched Avatar in Blu-ray from Blockbuster 'cause I got tired of streaming Chitty Chitty Bang Bang from Netflix.

"The Emerald Forest" had a better story than Avatar.

Got Sherlock Holmes today. Yet another "rental" disc stripped of everything but the movie and unskippable trailers.

There are many other films released to DVD this week that Netflix is only listing as "availability unknown" or not recognizing at all on their website. These include: Anna to the Infinite Power; The Unquiet Death of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg; Old Enough; Visual Accoustics; Without Trace; Oresama; Dialogues of the Exiled; Red Rowan; How to Live in the German Federal Republic; Roy Cohn/Jack Smith; Crime of Passion (Italian); and Voyage Round My Father. Most but not all of these are available now from Blockbuster. Netflix is not only releasing Warners and Fox movies with a delay, but is also lately abandoning its mission of stocking the long tail of demand for recently released and not well publicized foreign, classic, and independent films. I don't mind waiting a while for a new release, but I do mind a company making record profits not bothering to stock less high demand titles. I've had to pick up a supplemental subscription to Blockbuster by mail just to insure that I can access the new releases that Netflix is ignoring entirely.

The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus did have bonus features, but it also included an astounding 20+ trailers.

Some Obviously Fake Name

Death to trailers!

1) Load ANYDVD on your computer and rip a copy to your hard drive.

2) Run DVD Shrink, edit the DVD content, replacing all unnessisary trailers and useless crud with a still picture. (If you wish, you may compress the contents of the DVD... 80% down still looks great)

3) Using DVD Shrink, save that as a .ISO file to your home server.

4) Play the movie on your XBMC player, with the option - (*) skip trailers - selected.

5) Watch the film without annoying adverts.

6) AND FINALLY, when done, delete the film from your hard drive (...we don't want to upset the FBI, NSA, or local film mananagement authorities), return the Disc to NetFlix.


Easy-Peasy!

A lot will come out over time but the truth has been out there for a long time as well but that doesn't give you what you want so this dance just goes on and on.
