  1. What Is The Last Film You Watched? (Older Films)

    Twilight Time announced they were releasing it, but that was years ago and there haven’t been any updates since. I’m hoping Criterion or someone else snags the license and does it proper.
  2. What Are You Eating Tonight?

    I cooked up a delicious meal on Saturday to celebrate five years. Steak and mushrooms for me, shrimp and linguine for her. Broccoli in the middle!
  3. I’d rather have someone completely new score the film.
  4. What Is The Last Film You Watched? (Older Films)

    Panic Room is great. It desperately needs a blu-ray release.
  5. What kind of TV do you own?

    Costco has fantastic extended warranties. Best Buy used to have them years ago, but no longer. I remember my cousin broke our release model PS2 and when we took it in we were on the last day of the warranty and got the slim model no charge.
  6. What kind of TV do you own?

    As many are aware, it's Cyber Monday and this past weekend saw many a price drops in everything from electronics to kitchen appliances. I've been looking for a new TV for some time, and think I've settled on the Panasonic 55 " VT60 plasma, which right now is a reasonable $1,499. I'm still a pretty big DLP fan, but since the market for giant heavy TVs is dead, they no longer exist. LCD is also not as common as it used to be. The shitty motion smoothing fake colorization LED reigns supreme in the home theater market. My old Toshiba DLP has lasted me around 8 years, can't exactly remember how long it's been. The bulb has exploded on one occasion, which was easily replaceable due to the DLP nature (it works just like a film projector), but its picture is a bit on the buttery side and the bulb is probably on its last legs (they are no longer in production), yet it still looks better than any LED I've ever seen. I'm very picky about my picture quality, so I'm a bit apprehensive when it comes to buying something from this ever-changing market, where most TVs have so much unnecessary filters and customizations and smoothing and blurring and whatever already preset out of the box that it all looks like 48fps. I'm mainly looking for reassuring comments about my decision for this Panasonic plasma to make me take the plunge, but am also curious to know what JWFan-ers are watching on.

    Mine is still working fine. Wanna buy it? JWFan discount price of $3,000!
  8. The "I miss Disco Stu" thread

    I just never read anything outside of a handful of threads. Very rarely will I venture over into mess that is the JW subforum, where there are 18 different threads for The Last Jedi.
  9. Video Game Thread II

    It isn’t. I don’t follow PC prices. He mentioned earlier that just the Infinite expansions were $30 so I don’t know what’s going on over there.
  10. Favorite Movie Posters

    There was a thread once but I think that dealt with posters that copy each other. This one is for everything posters. Post your favorites, or new posters for upcoming films.
  11. Video Game Thread II

    It’s regularly been on sale for less than $30. Either way, $60 is a steal for 3 brilliant games.
  12. Video Game Thread II

    I loved experiencing Rapture during Atlas’ rise to power. There were some thrilling crossover moments from the original game. Also playing as Elizabeth and having a disembodied Booker as your “radio guide” was a nice twist, I thought.
  13. The Official La-La Land Records Thread

    Yeah man, fuck the artists and what they feel about their own work! It belongs to the consumers!
  14. What Is The Last Score You Listened To?

    Ah, nice to see someone besides @publicist appreciate Italian scores. Love the zaniness of this one, particularly:
  15. Video Game Music

    I was really excited for 1313. The Star Wars brand just seems to be shitting the bed in the game industry. Not a fan of how Lucasfilm is handling the property in this landscape. So much potential wasted. In other news, I was listening to The Post in iTunes and Portal 2 struck my eye, just a few albums up. This track alone brings a rush of wonderful memories:
  16. What Is The Last Film You Watched? (Older Films)

    You watch a lot of moviesl
  17. I had to bump Da Vinci Code off of mine to keep it at 10. I think it’s a fairly easy list, personally. Lots of good scores, but a handful of excellent ones and definitely a good chunk of poor ones (mainly the ones where his name is just on it). Hannibal, The Ring, and The Da Vinci Code form a pseudo-Italian trilogy of sorts. All feature a common melody and I like to listen to them together.
  18. Video Game Thread II

    Just get the collection. Comes with all games and DLC.
  19. Video Game Thread II

    Episode 1 was more or less your regular gameplay. It’s in Episode 2 where the stealth gameplay is added, but I thought it was fine considering that you don’t play as Booker. And you can just run and gun per usual anyway, if that’s your fancy. Once I stocked up well enough that’s how I continued. I think you should return to it at some point. It ties Rapture and Columbia more intimately than just another “man, city, and lighthouse.”
  20. Video Game Thread II

    Have you played the first two? I finished the Burial At Sea DLCs and didn’t realize going in that this is sort of the real ending of the franchise. I played Episode 1 back on PS3 but never got around to 2. The story here radically expands upon the ending to Infinite and alters the whole way I perceived it. Did you ever play these, @Quintus ? Right now I’m making my way through Life Is Strange: Before The Storm.
  21. Not according to the calendars we use.
  22. Pearl Harbor Black Hawk Down Tears Of The Sun The Last Samurai The Weather Man Frost/Nixon Sherlock Holmes The Lone Ranger 12 Years A Slave Interstellar
  23. Gladiator isn’t 21st century.
  24. Video Game Thread II

    After a 3-week COD distraction I finally got back to BioShock Infinite and finished it tonight. I still need to play the Burial At Sea DLC episodes, and I also want to go back to the Minerva’s Den DLC from BioShock 2. Such a shame that Irrational Gamea got shut down. Levine and crew were top developers.
