    I don't think I've read anyone's opinions on this new release yet? Anyway, this DVD is superb, the 5.1 is UNREAL - possibly one the best I've ever heard.....

    Check out my review HERE

    What does everyone else think of this release?

    There was an earlier thread on this but, YEAH. It's a decent disc.

    Very good picture considering its age and the sound has been nicely redone.

    Oh and it's NOT RCE as originally feared.

    Have you seen the screentest of Christopher Reeves in the extras? Sweaty armpits or what?!

    ONO,
    i've been wanting this disk, but every internet site states it's RCE. i own the multi region tosh3107 so i have been inclined not to order. Is this 100% not RCE..........if so i'll go ahead and order, can't be bothered to wait for the inferior R2 disk in september.
    cheers,
    mark.

    Mark mate.

    Nothing in life is 100% but this is what I did with my Sony 336:

    1-set to autoregion
    2-put in Superman - IT PLAYS
    3-eject and put in Charlies Angels (definite RCE) - IT DOES NOT PLAY.
    4-eject and put in Superman again - IT PLAYS.


    5-set player to Manual Region1
    6-put in Superman- IT PLAYS
    7-put in CA- IT PLAYS
    8-put in Superman - IT PLAYS


    From the above I deduce that it is NOT RCE.

    the rumours as you put it have been discussed to great length over at THE DVD FORUMS. And like its said over there as long as there service is good who cares who they USED to be !

    According to numerous posts over there STARS are fully legit and supply original products. The stock should start to ship next Monday ( from the US ) and arrive at homes end of next week !

    Good luck to them I say, no matter who they were

    You are at it again!!! What the hell is your problem?

    Your post is suggesting that I have hinted that if they are DVDSilvers that it's a bad thing. If you took the time to read people's post then maybe so many people wouldn’t be having a dig at you for your ignorance all the time. If anything I would view DVDSilvers as GOOD NEWS!

    I didn't say that their products were not legit, so again what are you going on about.

    You have something brown on your nose!


    In future read the post you are replying to as many times as it takes until you completely understand what the person is saying, once you have come up with a response PLEASE read through it. With a little time and effort maybe you can stop making yourself look like such an idiot!

    Also I would like to add that you are such a hypocrite. Remember when I asked which supplier delivered in the shortest time for the best price? You BLEW YOUR NUT! You couldn't believe someone could ask such a question but here you are, first in line to jump on the bandwagon and desert your beloved Play247! I also loved your post about how you were fed up waiting for your DVD's to arrive, it really made me laugh :D as it was YOU who slated everyone else for mentioning it before!

    ace im sorry
    i wish i could put a post across in a way that was not taken badly.
    im sorry, but i did not mis read your post at all, i understood what you were saying and support your views in there entirity
    I know u were a supporter of dvdsilvers and also support your decision the other month to remove your post
    please can you stop reading hate and bad feeling into my posts it is not meant

    I think we both share the same views, those being who cares who they used to be as long as service is good and like u said dvd silvers were good.

    My points about being inferiour products were not anything to do with you but rather what seemed to be a big question over at the dvd forums and also im not a brown noser, but i am willing to support and encourage any body attempting to do something good

    All these things about DVD silvers are just RUMOURS and like you and me and others have said who cares if they are true ? Lets just wait to see what next week brings shall we ?

    I also admit to being hypocritical about delivery times, im sorry. I dont really care how long they take to arrive from a company but what I do object to are the lies that some of them tell when they do not deliver on time. According to the posts over at the dvdforums by star themselves there orders will not be dispatched until next week

    Ace please calm down, i do not wanna start a flame war or anything, there is no point, my views are same as yours.

    I cancelled my orders with play b'cos they were more expensive and i wanna start saving some money

    What exactly are the rumours please?
    DVD Silvers or whatever.
    Private message will do if you don't want to upset anyone.
    Cheers.

    General,

    It's no big deal. Basically there are *rumours* that Star DVD's is a legit company opened up by the people who used to run 'sshhh, you know who'!

    This is one of the reasons given for the recent closure of said company.

    But like I said on the other forum, nobody ever complained about them so it doesn't worry me one little bit. :)

    Just like to reiterate that these are *rumours* only!

    These posts are better than the pay per view boxing on telly :)

    Duncan reminds me of the studious[some say boring] Cwiss Eubank, and Ace could easily be the hot tempered bad boy Nigel Benn

    Ace man, chill out a bit! :)

    You do seem a bit keen to jump down old DW's throat from time to time! All he was doing was stating the known facts about Star and their possible history.

    My personal views on the issue are in print several times over at the DVD Forums so I'll not bother repeating myself again here. (And why would anyone care anyway?!) :)

    Suffice to say I've already got my orders in and waiting by the door for my bargains. :D

    Don't you find waiting by the door all day, detracts from the enjoyment of HC just a little ?

    hey guys
    I'm the own complaining about dvdsilvers.
    I want to know if Stardvd is the same company, as they owe me money or a dvd disc of Meet the Parents. How come certain people know all about these links(ie dvdsilvers to stardvd)...ACE.. Are you connected to this company???I have still not finished with dvdsilvers because of the above and I will keep on making my point until I get a refund or the disc.

    DW - Your points have been noted, If only your original post had the same tone. Like we have all said the main thing is as long as the goods are at the right price and delivered within a specified time frame then we'd all be happy.

    coolgools - Sorry to hear about your problem, I was really hoping that they would have come through for you, but send them another mail to remind them. By the way, I am not connected to this or any other supplier. The following is my experience with DS:

    I ordered CTHD from them and when it arrived it turned out to be CAT:B so I E-Mailed them and they apologised but said that their supplier messed up. They told me to return it and it will be replaced with CAT:A. I returned it and within the week I had my replacement, which was fine! (Shame the film is a LOAD OF RUBBISH!) A few days later I heard the news about them being closed down.


    One thing is for sure if this company can pull it of then Play and Future better take drastic action or they WILL lose out on ALOT of business.

    Personally, I am waiting to see what happens next week and what people who have placed orders think of the service.

    PTM - Why Yorkie Pig ;)

    PS - My only concern is that they don't have a phone number to contact them! (I can't see it)

    Coolgools - sorry that you're still awaiting discs. Keep hassling them. I've never used them personally, but from all I've seen posted about them they don't seem like that sort of company. :(

    Ace - Yorkie Pig because I'm learning to be a lorry driver (hence Yorkie) and pig because people in the chat club say I'm always eating (!), so I'm Yorkie Pig, like Porkie Pig. :)
