Why don't you save the ghost stories for when the Lord is there?

I think she already saw it. I could try to get The Woman In Black with Harry Potter this weekend.
I'm all out for kicks...and every inch of me spells EXCITEMENT!

I kind of wanted to see The Woman in Black, too, so if you can get it please do so.

The Woman in Black

A good old fashioned ghost story starring Harry Potter.    Harry plays a lawyer sent to a small town where the children keep dying.  There is a legend of the woman in black who appears every time one dies.  I don't want to give away too much.  But Harry is good in it.  Well, I guess I should start calling him Daniel Ratcliffe now, I think he's proven himself to be a good actor in anything.  Highly recommend it.

And it was made by Hammmer films, I didn't even know they were still making movies.
I still like the radio adaptation best but I enjoyed this one a lot too. Was amazed when I found out Liz White plave Jennet; this is what I tend to think of her looking like:



Just saw this tonight. I know it's a cliche and that there would be no movie if it happened, but . . .

The Sting

The new Blu-Ray looks and sounds fantastic.  I didn't notice one speck of dust.  I keep loving this movie more every time I watch it.  You would think after you know all the twists that would diminish but it doesn't.

The Blu-Ray has more than normal annoying logos and stuff, the next chapter button skips the preview but they put a long Universal logo before it and then again before the movie, and a very crappy looking non-skipable screen that tells you there is a pop up menu available using your remote, the picture of the remote looks like a 5 year old drew it with MS paint.

Yeah, Universal pretty much sucks at Blu-Ray menus and operations. Always so irritating and buggy, while also pretty plain (pretty much every menu of theirs is the same, save for swapped backgrounds). Good thing they know how to make a great transfer, it still makes the discs worth it. And I'm happy to hear this one holds up nicely, that's a movie I could probably watch over and over again with no problems.

Also some time their movies have no extras or instead of putting them on the Blu Ray discs they put them on a DvD so they are not in HD and you have to switch discs. I really don't like Universal Blu Rays.

I don't recall ever encountering a combo pack where the features are on the DVD instead of the Blu-Ray.

Not saying they don't exist, but it seems very bizarre to me.

Really fun and lovely look at the convention, no shocking reveals or anything but just a nice look at nice people

Did they treat the fans respectfully? I hate shows/documentaries where they make fun of the fans.
