    Total class to get this up a day early. Nice to have Greg back…It’s a better dynamic when there’s 3 dudes on the show.

    I enjoyed hearing about the HD player, but you forgot to tell us the one thing we care about – did it make the movie better? Did it make you enjoy the movie more?

    Not much controversy… I can’t believe that anybody would think Stanley Kubrick has more bad movies than good though. Admittedly some of his movies are ‘easierly admired than enjoyed’, but I’m curious to know what Kubrick-movies Greg has seen… Oh well, mysteries of life.

  • If I was only concerned about whether or not a format would make me enjoy a movie more, i would’ve stuck with vhs.

  • Henrik

    I’m not sure you’re getting what my point is…

    DVD for sure makes a movie more enjoyable to watch. The player is way less noisy, I get the opportunity to see the movie with 5.1 digital sound, and the movie is in widescreen.

    It’s these advantages I don’t see with the HD format. But then again – it might be a suplemental thing, not necessarily something that will replace regular DVDs.

  • Greg

    I’ve seen Kubrick’s final 9 films. I enjoyed A Clockwork Orange, Full Metal Jacket, Dr. Strangelove and Spartacus. I did not enjoy Barry Lyndon, Eyes Wide Shut, 2001, The Shining or Lolita.

    I have not seen his films from the 1950’s.

    I don’t think I said that they were bad films in any way. I just didn’t enjoy them.

  • Henrik

    You’re right. I misquoted you, and I didn’t feel too god about it, but I had trouble articulating my point without paraphrasing… My shortcomings are numerous, and I apologize.

    I’m pretty impressed that you hung in there to see that many movies, even after not enjoying a significant amount… I agree with The Shining and Lolita probably being some of the weaker movies, but 2001? My god…

    Good show. 3 is better. James Blunt impersonation was LOL funny.
