Taking a break from this site. Too much hostility around here.
Not sure if this is the right thread for this question, but does anyone know if the Warner Premium Collection Blu-rays available over at HMV are region free? I’ve been eyeing a few of their releases for a while now, but I’m not sure if they’ll play on my US player.

The scene in Blade Runner where Deckard forces Rachael to make out with him. It’s problematic and deeply uncomfortable to sit through.
The Shining (1980)
What better way of starting the month of October than by revisiting one of my all-time favorite films. A masterpiece of atmosphere and tension, with excellent performances all around, particularly Nicholson’s, and a chilling, memorable score. My second favorite Kubrick, after 2001.

Technically, no, though one could argue the Rebel fanfare has become a musical motif for the Falcon.
To be fair, almost the entire musical cue that accompanies that scene in Solo is a rehash of previously existing material.
I don’t mind it much, because (1) Powell’s complete score has more than enough new themes/motifs to compensate, and (2) the music fits the scene well.
Haha, that’s awesome!

Fantastic Mr. Fox
Really lovely piece of work. Might be Anderson’s most well rounded piece of work.

The Honest Trailer pretty much sums up my thoughts on the movie. Not bad, but very bland and forgettable.
The Matrix (1999)
A slick, smart thriller that stands among the best sci-fi films of all time. It hold up well after nearly 20 years. A lot of fun!

Star Wars 9 Adds Dominic Monaghan To Its Cast
Awesome! I’ve always been a fan of Monaghan; he was great in LOTR and Lost.
Rest in peace. He’ll always be number one.
I really hope Tran’s role isn’t downplayed or sidelined in Episode IX. I loved her performance, and enjoyed what her character had to offer.
Well said Dre and Anchorhead.
‘Kelly Marie Tran: I Won’t Be Marginalized by Online Harassment’… (in her own words)
What did she mean when she said “my real name is Loan”?
Her real name is Loan. I think Kelly Marie is a stage name.
Also, Jake Lloyd’s Anakin >>> Hayden Christensen’s Anakin.
Marco’s pizza is great. There’s one by my local theatre; it’s a great place to stop and grab a bite after seeing a movie.
Overall, it’s defintely not a very good movie, but it’s got a lot going for it.
TPM or RotS?
I’m not too sure. ROTS might have the most surface-level entertainment value, but I feel TPM is the most well-made movie of the three. For starters, it’s not a bad looking movie (all the stuff set in space still looks fantastic), and I appreciate its visual continuity with the OT. It also has a superb John Williams score, and its sound design is pretty great as well. Overall, it’s defintely not a very good movie, but it’s got a lot going for it.
I don’t think it’s gonna happen. They’d surely have released news this big along with the recent cast announcement.
Lucasfilm clearly stated that this is the “final installment of the Skywalker saga”. Singular, not plural. I don’t think they’re all of a sudden going to change this into a two-film ordeal partway through development, especially after the bad rep they’ve acquired after the productions of Rogue One and Solo. They’re gonna take this as smooth as possible and strive towards making a coherent, satisfying conclusion.
Just my two cents.
it’s nice to see forum admins that […] are respectful and friendly to fellow members.
Clearly you’re confusing the admin with the moderators.
Sorry, I tend to refer to admins and mods as the same role. I understand the differences between the two positions, though.
