Do you mind if I ask if that's the Guillermo del Toro film, or the earlier 1947 film? Haven't come across the new one, but sounds good from the synopsis I've read on it.

I have This is Cinerama. It's been a while since I watched it but I remember enjoying it. The "Smile box" takes some getting used to but the content is great.

Many thanks for that Ender. Yes, I was always fascinated with this film having seen clips from it in the past including the Rollercoaster sequence featured in the trailer, and now this is my chance to own it on Blu-ray.


Edit: As an added note, I've just ordered This is Cinerama and am looking forward to receiving it. Now I just need to pop over to Vinegar Syndrome and order a couple of titles from them too. Oh well, it's only money.

The new one. It looked intriguing to me so I finally bought it. Haven’t seen the original but that may change if I enjoy this.

Season1 & 2 of Picard on BD arrived yesterday. I'm not a slipcover enthusiast by any means but only season 1 had one and season 2 did not.

"With an incredible performance by the great Conrad Veidt (whose character's maniacal-looking smile inspired the creation of The Joker in the Batman mythology), The Man Who Laughs is a silent classic which should not go overlooked by today's modern audiences."

You can't go wrong with this film - it's a masterpiece. I own 3 versions of it. I have the Flicker Alley, Eureka, and German Media Book editions. The German edition is a 4-disc behemoth.

If you ever get a chance to watch some sleazy noir, Brian de Palma's "The Black Dahlia" features Man Who Laughs as part of the plot line.

You want to add it - then you have to add the space your media takes up in your home for mortgage, rent, insurance, etc.

BTW =-if you are ordering your media, as I know almost all of you do - better add YOUR ISP charges because . . . no ISP, no ordering disc.

Fair is fair.

one does need a better ISP package to stream instead of banking or ordering BDs so I agree with Penguin if the reason someone has the package they have vs a cheaper one is streaming that extra cost should be factored in. On the other hand I don't know anyone that has bought a more expensive home to store their collection or paying for extra storage for it and if someone did buy more expensive home t or extra storage that should be factored in. the space argument is also week since my shelves are six inches deep against walls it is not like a table where it cramps your stile, at best all itr does is stop someone from adding art /wal paper on the wall, but honestly a collection makes a better conversation starter that can go on fro a while.

That being said even if I decide to add in the costs for the space that my collection takes up, I don't rent and my house has been paid off for many years now. The only costs that make sense to be added up would be my municipal property tax and school tax (here they are two different bills based on property evaluation) and if I round it up to the nearest 1$/year it will just be 1$/y.

Maybe if someone was renting a very small place in one of the most expensive places in the world it might be a bit different. But I don't think there are many cases where it will make any interesting difference.

Whatever you pay for your ISP has to be included in your disc costs if you are ordering your content online. That makes it an Oranges vs Oranges comparision to streaming if you are going to include the cost of your ISP. If you use your iPhone instead of a computer - include that. Me personally - I have a desktop PC. My phone is a flip phone - no access to the internet.

What about any furniture that you may have spent to house your discs?

depends what one wants to do. Like Wendell said if you want to calculate some of the costs to as work costs you need to calculate everything very carefully. used internet 6 minutes to buy 3 BDs on amazon, used internet 6 hours to watch 3 films on Amazon prime. But that is not what Penguin was talking about. And doing so will make things worst for streaming. What he said is if there is a 40$ package and that works well enough for you for everything else but you have the 70$ package because of streaming that 30$ difference a month is because of streaming and should be added to your cost

built my own shelves a long time ago, so a bit of pine, tint and screws. I am sure there might be some people that spend a lot on fancy looking shelving but then it is a cost of esthetics and not storage.

I don't know about you but I pay a flat rate for my ISP. If I use it for 10 miutes or 200 hours, the rate doesn't change. You need that ISP to get on line so the time fractions mean absolutely nothing.

Nope - those fancy disc storage towers thay sell at Amazon - that has to be included if you bought them. Home built - not really.

Are there cheaper internet options in your area that would be fast enough and provide enough bandwidth for everything but streaming? If so you should factor in the price difference when you are calculating the cost of streaming.

In my area it would cost an extra $50 per month to upgrade my internet speed and remove the bandwidth cap.

I calculated the cost of shelving: it's 12˘ per case. I put most of my discs into 4-disc cases so they use up less space, they cost 50˘ each. The cost of cases and shelving is therefore 15.5˘ per disc. TV shows usually come in good cases so I don't have to buy new cases; the cost of storing them is therefore only 12˘ per case (most commonly 1 season per case).

If you're renting a larger apartment to store a large collection then it makes sense to factor that into your costs. But if you own your house then a larger house isn't an expense: it's an investment.

It comes down to the speed and data caps required to stream video. if you had google fiber for example and all you wanted to do was check email, surf the web, order online, bank etc then you really don't need more then 5mbps. If you had google fiber for example you could get all of that with the free construction plan. If you want to stream videos though your going to need to much higher mbps and it could cost you an extra 50 to 100 dollars a month. Its not as cut and dry if you do other high data activity's but for most streaming is the only reason they need faster internet plans.



As for furniture ya that is fair to include as a cost of physical though most of my bookshelves cost little to nothing. You can also include the blu ray players and streaming boxes/smart tv to physical and digital respectively.

My media shelves were very cheap and easy to make. I need to make more as I'm putting some of the DVDs and Games and CDs in the same place.

As far as steaming, I have bonded DSL for a glorious 25Mbs. I don't really need more bandwidth but I do want to move to Fiber Optic internet whenever my area has the ability. My church finally moved from DSL to Cable internet and good for them. I would but I think I still hate Comcast for reasons I can't remember.

Gaming is another big reason. The wait for game downloads can be tedious unless you have fibre.

Speaking of gaming .....

I have a PS5 under the tree and I'm debating if it should be used with the home theater or with my VGTV (Video Game TV).

I'm thinking I will use the PS5 with my projector as my VGTV is a $100 Black Friday LG 1080p LCD. I mean,... it looks amazing but I don't think it delivers on anything PS5 brings to the table.

Maybe next Black Friday I'll update the VGTV. Gaming to me is more comfortable in the living room than the theater but I guess I'll find out.

What's more likely is I'll get PSVR 2 and that's it ... I'll never be seen again. ha ha ha.



Last night I watched The Last Picture Show which is something I never heard of (was from a box set.) It was a good blind buy.
