Then what is your point?  What you described is someone being stupid, not sexist.  As Ryan said, there's nothing political about the cast of Ghostbusters 3.

 Yeah, it is stupid, but is the statement "since they are women, they're automatically better than Bill Murray, Dan Akroyd, and Harold Ramis" not also sexist? I see statements pretty much like that all the time, and I think it's a little annoying. I guess I just used Ghostbusters 3 as an example of this. I dunno, feel free to call me a misogynistic pig, I guess.

Have we discussed the obvious political subject matter of... Ghostbusters 3?

No because there isn't one?

 There is. I was having a discussion with someone, and they said that the new cast is better than the old one. When I inquired as to why, they responded "because they're women." This is an irritating trend I've noticed recently; just a blatant sexism that seems to be okay because it isn't the traditional kind. But, well, it's still sexist, isn't it?

THE FORCE AWAKENS (Episode VII) Discussion *SPOILER THREAD* See OP For Trailer/Teaser Links--Trailer is out!

Movies like The Sixth Sense are sometimes better the second time, as you can enjoy discovering all the clues you missed the first time.

 Unfortunately, when I saw it for the first time, I knew the twist. I would say it definitely wasn't as enjoyable as it probably would have been if I hadn't known.

Amadeus - Theatrical Cut Restoration 1080p (V2)
Time

tikkitavi said:

This is one of my top 5 favorite films of all time. I had the theatrical release on VHS, and received the Directors Cut blu ray as a gift, which I could not bear after the first viewing (and I've bought the flipper DVD). And, if they come out with the restored theatrical release blu ray I'll buy that too. But in the meantime, any way I could get a link?

THANK YOU jimbotron for all of your hard work!! You've done work worthy of the greatest fine art picture restorer!! :D 

(like this :)

Harmy's STAR WARS Despecialized Edition HD - V2.7 MKV IS OUT NOW
Time

Nanner Split said:


Also if there are any bonus features Harmy wants to include then this will obviously have to be revised.

 Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought some bonus features were being worked on earlier this year. Also, this featurette is pretty good bonus feature material anyway. Of course, I'm not Harmy, and would be fine with just the movie.

  For some reason I seem to remember that HD footage doesn't lose quality when cropped, is this true?

 You will lose quality regardless, but with HD footage you have room to crop it without a noticeable decrease if you're planning on an SD release. This is all due to the simple fact that there's more picture information in the HD footage.
