(Click on the "DVD" thread icon to find threads going back to the beginning of the year...here are links to the previous four weeks: 8/21 - 8/28 - 9/4 - 9/11)

Hello.

Allow me a short moment to pat my own back - we attracted over a thousand people to last week's post via search engine hits that we were able to record! Hopefully it wasn't because people were searching on "9/11" but we'll see this week.

You know, as many people as see these lists, you'd think we'd see some more feedback. HEY LAZY PEOPLE GIVE SOMETHING BACK TO ME ALREADY. (Those of you who actually click and BUY something can be excused, I suppose - still, an email or a reply costs NOTHING but a few seconds. Okay, end new whining - let's cut'n'paste in the old whining)

For those of you who HAVEN'T been here before, these lists work like so:

Hovering over links should provide you with Amazon's current price.

CLICKING on those links will take you to the Amazon shopping cart with a friendly referral from The W - consider making your purchase through us and it'll place a few coins in our tip jar!

Because Amazon sometimes can't come correct with the information, you will see some exposition from me (or, more likely, a bad joke) in addition to the listing along with IMDb icons (which can be clicked to take you to a movie's IMDb listing) or tv.com icons (which can be clicked to take you to the relevant episode list from tv.com)

All links should open in new windows so you can come right back here after your research! (If you want - we're totally flexible about that!)

Please tell a friend (or vote this thread up Digg/Netscape/&c. with a click of the icon(s) of your choice at the bottom of this post) about this post because it takes me a long time and I'm a big fan of more eyeballs!

Please feel free to add a reply and share your two cents about any of the listings you see here - show off your impressive knowledge, share your opinion about something you've seen, something you're looking forward to seeing, or make your own crappy jokes which are better than mine!

We also hope that if you buy something, you come back and tell us what you thought about it! This hardly ever happens, but again, we can dream!

If you have something to say but don't want to say it publicly (or register for the board - but geez, why not just register for the board? All those "Sam the Cooking Guy" fans were able to do it!), you can also email me direct at CRZ.DVD@gmail.com!

THEN CATCH CRAIG



PICK OF THE WEEK

Upright Citizens Brigade - The Complete Second Season (Comedy Central, 1999) Another ten episodes - geez, why not release the third season now and instantly gratify us?

Going to get Deathproof for sure. I just picked up Viva Las Vegas when it was released on regular DVD a couple weeks back and I thought they did a great job cleaning up the print. It really looked great. If I had an HD/Blu Ray player, I would try to rent it just to see if there's a difference.

The first season of "Upright Citizen's Brigade" came out to no fanfare whatsoever a few years ago - I know I stumbled across a copy in Best Buy. It long since went out of print. So far as I can tell, this is just a rerelease of the same set. Season 2's new, though.

It still kills me that they're splitting up "Grindhouse". I know they're planning a big time special edition, but I'm still waiting for that "Kill Bill" special edition so I don't plan on holding my breath. But until it happens, the trailers are stuck in purgatory. The "Don't" and "Machete" trailers were better than either movie, dammit!

Does the computer have Windows Vista? If so, have you noticed any playback issues when using the HD-DVD player?

Apparently Windows Vista has high definition copy protection built in (I've heard it was the only way that the RCAA would allow them to have high def disc drives at all). Here's an article from two years ago that describes it.
http://arstechnica.com/articles/paedia/hardware/hdcp-vista.ars

So there have been problems with it. Anything that the system doesn't recognize as approved content (for example, home videos shot in HD), it will automatically degrade to non-HD levels. http://www.pcworld.com/article/id,135814-c,windowsbugs/article.html

Mr. Gutmann, quoted in the PC World article, has a paper up where he said that the copy protection makes it impossible to play HD on the majority of systems because for a long time there were no graphics cards or monitors that supported HDCP, which are two of the conditions necessary for display of HD content. Also, any display device with more than 520,000 pixels (any monitor that can display higher than 800 x 600 resolution) will have its picture automatically degraded. If you're running anything above Vista Basic, you are required to have a monitor resolution above that.
In addition, I've heard horror stories about other system process slowing to a crawl while Media Player is running (because of increased workload from the copy protection; it checks for errors every 30 miliseconds if you are using digital output). Here is Mr. Gutmann's full report. http://www.cs.auckland.ac.nz/~pgut001/pubs/vista_cost.html

This is all second hand, so I was interested in hearing from someone who had experienced high def on Vista himself.

Well, bear in mind that I have never seen Planet Earth in any other format, so there could be issues that I just don't recognize. If the picture looked better (or if it ran smoother - as I have noticed what might be a bit of skipping, but it seems to be only in certain scenes) in a dedicated HD-DVD player, I don't know. And I have only ever tried this one title, so my experience certainly shouldn't be taken as the standard.

Of the new stuff this week, I watched The Boss of It All, The Valet, and The Condemned.

The Valet was your standard French farce -- light and frothy and without much else there. A billionaire CEO hires a valet to pose as the boyfriend of the CEO's supermodel mistress in order to trick the CEO's wife. The valet and his slacker roommate will almost certainly be played by Michael Cera and Jonah Hill, respectively, in the American remake which I just made up. Mostly, I watched it because I'm a fan of Daniel Auteuil, who always looks like a big, confused bird to me, whether he's doing comedy (like this or The Closet) or drama (like Cache).

---

I'm more interested in Lars von Trier's working methods than his actual movies, most of the time; I like his ideas about putting limitations on art, like in his tongue-in-cheek Dogma manifesto. My favorite of his films is The Five Obstructions, a documentary in which von Trier challenges a fellow filmmaker to remake his own film five times, with a different set of "obstructions" each time. In The Boss of it All, von Trier introduces the Automavision process, which allows a computer to decide how to tilt or pan the camera. The camera holds still, they shoot a take, then the camera resets and they do it again. The resulting film, then, is filled with jump cuts between various oddly-framed shots.

The actual movie is pretty funny -- a tech firm owner wants to be beloved by his employees, so he invents a fictional boss to blame bad news on. When an Icelandic firm wants to buy the company, he hires an out-of-work actor to portray the boss. Hijinks ensue. I think, unfortunately, that the Automavision process is more obfuscating than anything else. It's distracting, frequently annoying, and you never really get used to it.

---

The Condemned sucked. It could have been a fun, mindless action flick, but the action was sub-par and the depravity was depressing -- and then they have the gall to turn around and make a speech about how people who watch violent entertainment might just be the real problem. What sanctimonious assholes. Oh, also, weirdly enough, Stone Cold exhibits no charisma whatsoever. Skip this; watch Battle Royale instead.

My expectations for The Condemned were so low that I enjoyed it. I didn't think it was any worse than The Marine. I caught Death Proof (really enjoyed), Gracie (not bad, my daughter enjoyed it), We Are Marshall (Matthew McConaughey is the male Demi Moore - won't ruin a movie, yet he's totally interchangable with 100 actors that will do better), and Brooklyn Rules which was, to me, similar to A Bronx Tale, and pretty good.

I would be interested (if anyone happens to know), what was different between the DVD and theatrical release of Death Proof (I didn't see Grindhouse in the theater).

Unless I'm mistaken, it contains the "lost reels" of the movie. In the theater, both Death Proof and Planet Death (did I get that one right?) were shorter than the typical movie and the had a gimmick where one of the movies looked like the film burned and another showed something about a missing reel of film. So they just jump from one scene to something that should happen 15 minutes later with no explanation of what went on. I read when the movie was in theaters that the DVD would include this "missing" footage.

We bought the special Best Buy "Death Proof" in steel box with bonus third DVD - it was the promotional special for "Grindhouse" which (Kim thinks) aired as a half hour MTV presentation - which means it clocked in at about 24 minutes. Sadly, the tiny clips of the trailers are probably more than we'll get in the other two discs combined, but overall probably worth the additional $6 investment. (I should add that at 5:something PM yesterday I saw the last $16.99 sale copy get picked up, and they were down to about four $22.99 special copies after I nabbed mine.) Didn't watch the movie yet, can't comment on the missing reel.

Also bought:
Family Guy 5 (I'm a sucker for a sale price)
Fall Guy 1 (On sale for $24.99, marked down for $54.99 - I AM a sucker for a sale price)
Red Dawn: 2 disc collector's edition (for Kim - on sale for $9.99 - We love the "Carnage Counter" close captioning option)

I think most of these prices are valid on bestbuy.com this week as well... Here you go:

Death Proof Exclusive (bestbuy.com)
Fall Guy: the Complete First Season (bestbuy.com)
Family Guy Vol. 5 (bestbuy.com)
Red Dawn (bestbuy.com)
