Let us not pick at old forum wounds. It was a difficult situation for the staff to deal with. Further regurgitation of the matter is not advised.

I’ve never been able to finish the original NotLD. Found it terribly boring.

This. I have tried several times and can’t finish it either, which is weird because I generally love zombie movies.

Rifftrax…

You guys are dead to me.
Not undead. Just the regular kind.

I didn’t say it was boring, just suggesting one way to enjoy it. I appreciate it’s place in the genre, but it’s not something I’d watch when I’m feeling down. The Rifftrax live show had me in stitches, President Obama! Thank goodness you’re here!, but even they called it quits before the uplifting ending. 😉

Politics 2: Electric Boogaloo

I thought that was what all those nukes are for. The gallows humor when guys my age had to fill out those Selective Service cards out at the post office was that any National Emergency was probably going to be a nuclear war, so why worry about being drafted?

In the 21st century, what sort of dire situation is going to allow time for mass quantities of civilians to be drafted and trained for combat? Short of World War 3, which would be over pretty quickly and badly for everyone involved.

Han - Solo Movie ** Spoilers **

I’m sure nobody here will have the same frame of reference, but the new Han looks just like Dick Valentine, singer for Electric Six. My Lady and I can’t stop laughing about it! (we’re big E6 fans)
The more I see of him, the stronger the resemblance becomes. If he yells “YES!” at any point, I’m not sure we’ll be able to recover.

Question about public domain works
Time

Good question! I know some smaller DVD labels have watermarked their transfers of PD titles because even smaller fly by night labels just rip them off. Collections of PD cartoons being an example. Purists hate the bug in the corner of the screen.

It would not surprise me if Criterion found a way to watermark their restoration in a way invisible to the eye and ear.

The recent Manos: The Hands of Fate restoration is copyrighted, but the Blu Ray provides an additional unrestored transfer from a different print with a fair use disclaimer.
