    Well I Mostly have movies from the 80s and earlier but I do have some newer ones... My newest movie is SAW II (2005) - They did an excellent job on SAW/SAW II on VHS .. FULL SCREEN,SP MODE.... 100% ANALOGUE AUDIO (@ least on the linear track) .. IT COULDNT BE BETTER!!!

    And the copy of SPEED I found is goregous.. Most of them are darker/contrasted down on the tape,looks horrible..... I think this one copy might be a WORK PRINT copy as there is NO HIFI TRACK and at the end of the movie it goes to a blue screen and ya see two arrows pointing back as they are rewinding the master tape..... The video on this one IS GOREGEOUS,not dark,etc.......

    I often get DUPLICATES of movies as Im trying to get a better copy..


    Thanx for asking buddy :)

    Los Gatos,...
    Went out to Firestone, CO to spend Thanksgiving with some of the grandkids. We took them to see Thor. I will give it an A. A very enjoyable movie, great humor, some teary moments (I guess), lots of action, and a serious couple of baddies.

    Watched "Kong: Skull Island" on HBOGO yesterday. Interesting take on the big monkey. A few technical flaws but overall a entertaining flic. I give it a B+.

    Just saw this on HBO and also agree whole-heartedly with the B+ rating. Only real problem I had was with some of the creature appearance and animation. "Fakier-looking" than it ought to be for today's possible tech (more artistic than realistic). IOW not much creature improvement since the original Jurassic Park from 20+ yr ago.

    However, some of the other FX were spectacular.

    Only other thing I didn't like was HBO's in and out of letterbox presentation. Although the scenes that were letterboxed mostly needed to be, why not just leave it that way??

    (I wonder how many stuck all the way thru the creds to see the setup for the "next one.")

    Does this plot sound familiar? Criminals demands a ransom, and has planted a bomb on a fully-booked bullet train. Should that train drop below 80 kph, the bomb goes BOOM! To demonstrate this point, a bomb goes off on a freight train. And, there is only a limited amount of time before there is no track left.

    That's the plot of 1975's Shinkansen daibakuha, better known as The Bullet Train. I saw it back in the 80s on television where it was dubbed and a chunk was edited out. This is the uncut version, but it is also only subtitled.

    Am I the only person who hated Kong: Skull Island?

    Plenty to dislike about a lot of flicks, especially these days. There's a whole world full of "critically acclaimed" stinkers out there.

    While hate is a rather strong word, personally I was entertained by Kong (but then again, I can find a lot of so-called "schlock" to be entertaining as well).

    To each their own, I guess.

    165832_large.jpg Interesting mystery that will give you pause the next time you use a cork screw. I give it a B.
