Plus, they would have run into trouble with the Trades Descriptions Act, since "Virgin" One was obviously f***** as soon as Murdoch got his hands on it. ;)

Hi,

Yes, I knew they would (effectively) be using two cameras, as that's how stereoscopic movies normally work. I meant the distance between the two cameras- the greater this is, the greater the...

I have it under assurance that Avatar is actually quite decent if you're watching it in eleven or more dimensions.



How does that work? Most football is viewed from a fair distance and 3D only has...

I'll agree that The Professionals looks pretty ropey. But to be fair, part of the problem is that the original negatives and even the derived inter-positives (the latter are supposedly the favoured...

You're wrong there- you can still have the TV repaired, it's just a question of whether you think it's worth it.

I used to buy quite a lot of singles on tape, but that was because CD singles were grossly overpriced.
