    As members are not able to post in the review forum, This thread is for any feedback or requests for reviews that you may have.

    I will also update what DVD's we have coming in the next week or so by updating the thread.

    If you would like to see something added to reviews that dont exist at the moment such as Packaging etc then add your views.

    Post away your requests and feedback are welcome.

    I'd quite like to see reviews on some of the old epics and war films like Lawrence of Arabia Superbit, Cross of Iron, Spartacus, etc.

    I'd like to see reviews of this lot if you could:-

    Star Trek movies R1
    Donnie Brasco 2-disc R1
    True Romance 2-disc R1
    City Of God

    + the usual:-

    The Hulk
    T3
    The Lion King R2
    X-Men 2 R1 + R2
    Adventures Of Indina Jones, The R2

    If at all possible, I'd love to see comparisons between the different regional releases of these films and the others you review as the others you have done have been really helpfull in getting the best version...

    p.s. Just a quick thanks for all the work that has been done so far, the reviews have been great, and even if I havn't really been interested in the film, have been a good read in general... saying that, I have picked up a couple of dvd's based on the reviews that I normally wouldn't have, cheers!!

    Regards,
    Iain.

    How about a comparison between the different THE EYE versions that are around (now that teh R1 is out as well)??

    I assume this is meant mailny for older titles as I guess you'll get and review the new ones anyway, no?

    I'll think of some more;)
    cheers

    No probs Marv, though I must say this is will come low on our priority list (might be a good one to get in while the new releases are a little slim though)

    Hi,
    How about a comparison of the normal version of K-19 The Widowmaker, with the german DTS-ES soundtrack one?
    Regards. Roger

    I have held off buying Lion King because ive been wantin to see a comparison done between the DD5.1 and the DTS, hope u can give an opinion on that and also would love to see review comparisons between Tomb Raider DD5.1 and the DTS Japanese version and the german 24/96khz DTS version which should be an even bigger leap up in terms of sound quality, also a comparison between the region 3 DTS Terminator 3 and the region 1 version would be nice.

    Did City Of God R3 DTS Edition never get reviewed?

    I know it was on the 'Coming Soon' list at some point.

    Still unsure whether to buy it for the DTS soundtrack or not :D.

    The supplier for that disc did not send it through, probably due to stock shortage. We do have the R1 disc on order.

    Would it be possible to review some asian/ foreign movies for the uninitiated. Films like the original Ring and Dark Water spring to mind.
    We always seem to get reviews of all the blockbusters (which is a good thing) but I don't think it wise to overlook titles from other countries as these sometimes seem to be more original and offer something different to your every day hollywood film. (just a thought).:)

    HawkLord,

    You read our minds, in the new year thanks to Disc emporium we will be delving into Anime and other not well known film genres.

    Oh and any recommendations from our readers are most welcome.

    According to PlayUSA, the R1 edition has a Dolby Digital 2.0 soundtrack.

    I'll buy the Region 3 DVD anyway, and perhaps write my own analysis of the DTS soundtrack for forum members if that's okay?
