Today I learned that the biggest problem middle-class white men have is a women-only screening of Wonder Woman.

First world problems I guess

The Alamo is not shutting out men from every screening, just a few. A man who wants to see the movie at the Alamo still has every opportunity to do so.

i don’t understand why anyone could have a reasonable complaint against one or two women-only screenings…

I mean, really? present an argument that is something more than whining, i can’t think of any.

Especially considering how many organizations, universities etc banned women from membership over the decades…

The origin story for Wonder Woman the film and the golden age comic are very similar, so IMHO, good storytelling took precedence over any percieved propaganda, regardless of how it was spun or who tried the spinning. Similar outcries were heard when people complained that Luke Cage was “too ethnic”…but that is who Cage is and that is the world he lives in. Just like WW and her hot Amazonian sisters in this case, and sweet Christms was this film a good one.

Laptop screen problem
Time

Sounds like the layers of laminate within the monitor glass have cracked and that is why it looks so funky. I am not an expert by any means, but I have seen it a few times when I worked for Ford Motor co. We had laptops in the shop for diag and every so often one would take a tumble and need repair.

Depending upon the model, replacement parts can be found and the unit repaired; screens can be fairly simple to replace if you are handy. The alternative would be a laptop shop, but then you would need to weigh cost of repair vs replacement of the laptop.

Buying slipcovers?

I think you just need to live with the shame…just kidding of course. Maybe a mod could delete it for you; either way don’t sweat it but the next round is on you.

Wow…

I hope that you are able to find someone who can help that. Best of luck.

Any interest in professionally made box sets for Despecialized?

Then I agree that digipacks are the best options.

But what do we do in terms of specs and such? I assume our own Despecialized sets vary in terms of audio options, subtitles, special features, number of discs (anywhere from 1 to 3 per film) etc.?

That is true that there is a great deal of variance between versions of Despecialized, but if we look at the NJVC set, there are really only 2 options, 25 and 50 GB. Using those as a template might simplify the process, but I am sure that Jo can explain to what level we can customize our printed materials.

In terms of full slips vs Digi packs, I would prefer the full slips for my Criterion Cases and after test fitting one of my cases in a steelbook full slip Jo made for me previously, I found that the Criterion cases will fit his steelbook slips…so we are good there.

I think that getting a point person for the countries represented by the community and selection of designs/options seem to be the next logical steps…

I would love a professional set of slip cases. I make my own labels, case covers, inserts, even boxes - but for some reason my slip cases never come out well at all.

I had the same struggles with the slips I tried to DIY; I never could quite get them the way I wanted.

I contacted Jose yesterday; hopefully he will join the boards in the next few days and be able to field questions and get this project off the ground.

This is brilliant! Crap, now the problem is how does one choose between Digipaks or Steelbooks?

I’m sure both will be amazing.

There is a third option, that being slip covers printed to cover the cases which have already been purchased, which is what I chose to do. Jose printed the slips slightly larger to accommodate my Criterion cases, they are pictured above.

In terms of pricing, steel books will be the most expensive and labor intensive…buying the empty, disassembly and the painting, etc. The process is very similar to what others on the boards have done.

The next option in terms of price will be Digi Packs and then, slips.

Jose can give specifics or perhaps clarify options next week.

I’ve been making custom discs lately so a custom made box would be nice. Count me in as interested. Will he accept individual requests or will he just be creating sets based on the same design(s)???

That is a great question. In the past with my prsonal orders, he has been pretty flexible, like printing custom things for my box set and changing out the single disc amray holder for a 3 disc, so I am sure that there will be some customization in the project. I am thinking about asking him to offer 3 designs that we can then perhaps mix or match to suit our needs. To be fair to him, we probably need to settle on a few options instead of a few dozen buyers all wanting something different. Once I get back in the office on Tuesday I will contact him about joining the forums so that he can answer some of these questions directly. Also, he is in Spain, so Spanish or English won’t be an issue, but if there is another language desired, he may be able to print out whatever you want as long as you provide the translated text desired. He can also then address issues like pricing and shipping costs.

Thanks!
