    Cool. I wasn't aware that Panasonic made D-VHS units.
    I still have a couple JVC's. Both with a few faults, though. The one has capacitor issues around the power supply area, and the other plays perfectly but the problem sometimes tends to be the tape-loading mechanism. On occasion it kinda gets stuck and wants to eject the tape. It's been like that ever since it was damaged in-transit.

    That's unfortunate. Funny thing is, I have actually never watched a D-VHS tape, I just have the player (EDIT: No I don't, I just went down into my storage to hunt for it and that's not the player I brought with me).

    Technology is a funny thing, I have the same nostalgic feeling for some of these devices, I thought Laser-Disc was amazing for example, but they just don't compare to the quality and convenience of modern tech.

    Alien in Ultra HD looks just fantastic, the format really does justice to film. 2001, The Shining, Bridge Over The River Kwai, Apocalypse Now... all outstanding. I don't have particular interest in the movie, but I'm tempted to buy The Wizard of Oz just to see what they've done with it.

    EDIT: The other unique thing about the format is that we haven't even seen how good these films really look yet, since the display technology will take many years yet to catch up to the standard. Not something you can say about most formats.

    I used to have almost a complete set. As I recall I had about 85 tapes, incl some speciality and demo tapes. Most were sold though to a local collector several years ago.

    Oh yeah, no question.
    Speaking of LaserDisc, I had always wanted to get one of those MUSE players but could never justify the cost.

    Dora and the Lost City of Gold 7/10, never watched the cartoon once but this movies is a pretty good adventure movie, plot is predictable but i guess I'm biased to the explorer sort of puzzles, a gender confused miniature nate drake with bangs.

    Got a chance to see Joker.

    Basically an exploration of what causes a lonely, unhinged man to explode. Not my cup of tea but still well worth it just for the tour de force performance of Joaquin Phoenix.

    So less superhero film, more adult reality?

    That sounds pretty good and more mature to me.

    It's one of those movies you can respect, though it's a little harder to like, IMO.

    In a way it's a bit of a strange one. Who would you recommend it to? Probably comic book fans but not for comic book movie fans, particularly younger crowds. And letís say yes for cinephiles, but no for casual moviegoers.

    I'd say it's best treated as if this wasnít of a superhero or supervillain origin at all; that it's just an intimate tale of a dangerously insane man.

    Yeah thatís what sounded appealing to me is that it doesnít sound like the superhero thing is the main event, which offers a more visceral realistic look at things.

    Itís more Joker : Silence of the Lambs than day Joker : Batmanís Nemesis.
