I don’t think the NFL hires these guys based on their IQ. 😉

Terrible DVD/Blu-ray Cover Art
Time

When did Hot Shots come out on Blu Ray?

And since we’re getting a widescreen version of the Superman tv cut, it could be in a plain brown wrapper at this point. I’m buying it. 😉

ANH - Skyhopper scenes

Interestingly it’s appeared in various other places, like videogames from the acceptable Rogue Squardon titles (I forget if the third included it outside co-op) to the almost unplayable Rebel Assault. On film I think the nonsensical ending to ROTJ SE is the only example. They still producd a whole bunch of toys anyway of course.

I’m surprised Kenner never made one back in the day, as they started making vehicles like the Imperial Troop transporter, which never appeared on screen. Then again, with the exception of the die cast mini, we never got a Y-Wing until the ROTJ line.

It seems like it was a missed opportunity to not have young Anakin be a hot shot Skyhopper pilot in TPM.

A house down the street has Halloween decorations up already. I’m totally okay with this.

None that I’ve ever heard of. Interesting that both the Marvel comic and the radio drama covered similar ground.

If they ever were to do a standalone movie about Luke’s life on Tatooine, this would be a great base for the script.

And that Megaforce clip makes the flying motorcycles in Galactica 1980 look good!

Mocking the guy who’s just demonstrated he has now got a bigger nuke and a ICBM to put it on is always a good idea. Are we in a bad remake of Dr. Strangelove?
How many citizens even own cars in NK that gas lines would be a problem?

And again, that is the worst handwriting I’ve ever seen.

I watched Orville and was quite pleased. The visuals are gorgeous, I’m a little surprised they managed to pull that off on a TV budget. The humor can be a bit bluer than I care for at times but it’s not too bad. You can tell they were very earnest with the writing on this series and it feels like a love letter to classic Star Trek. There’s a real heart to it.

So if Discovery turns out to be the disaster in making it seems to be at least we’ll have one decent new Trek series to watch.

As Jonathan Frakes and Robert Duncan McNeil are supposed to each be directing an episode, the Trek connection is getting stronger.
Maybe they’ll get Patrick Stewart to play a warped version of Picard? 😉

It was a cryptic answer to a badly worded question. If I was that guy I’d be mentally kicking myself for a long time over that.

It’s too bad the stereo mix on the old Discovision Laserdisc hasn’t been carried over to modern releases.

Oh? Can you elaborate about this, please? Is it better/different to that on the DVD and the uncompressed 2.0 LPCM stereo on the Blu-ray?

JEDIT: Ah, the Blu-ray is actually mono. Bill Hunt seems to have misreported the specs.

There was a thread over at the LDDB forum where it was discussed in detail.

As it’s an early title the discs are prone to the same defects and rot as most Discovision pressings are. I have two copies, and the rot affects the sound on both.
Is it possible somebody could work some digital magic cleaning the audio up?
