Couldn't find a thread on this (redirect if needed) but I won some passes today for next weeks advance screening of this flick, anyone seen it and is it worth going to the screening?

Doesn't look too bad actually. You won passes anyway so you've got nothing to lose.

Doesn't look like something I'd want to take off work and school for. I'll netflix it in when it comes out on digital video disc.

if anyone is in or around santa fe new mexico and wants some free passes to this flick, let me know. It's on april 14th at the downtown theater in albuquerque.

[1.1.1] What do the letters DVD stand for?
All of the following have been proposed as the words behind the letters DVD.

-Delayed, very delayed (referring to the many late releases of DVD formats)
-Diversified, very diversified (referring to the proliferation of recordable formats and other spinoffs)
-Digital venereal disease (referring to piracy and copying of DVDs)
-Dead, very dead (from naysayers who predicted DVD would never take off)
-Digital video disc (the original meaning proposed by some of DVD's creators)
-Digital versatile disc (a meaning later proposed by some of DVD's creators)
-Nothing

And the official answer is? "Nothing." The original acronym came from "digital video disc." Some members of the DVD Forum (see 6.1) tried to express that DVD goes far beyond video by retrofitting the painfully contorted phrase "digital versatile disc," but this has never been officially accepted by the DVD Forum as a whole. The DVD Forum decreed in 1999 that DVD, as an international standard, is simply three letters. After all, how many people ask what VHS stands for? (Guess what, no one agrees on that one either.)

sorry, what does DV stand for?

do u know what DVD stands for?

well DV = DVD - D


What are you talking about?

DV stands for Digital Video.
DVD did stand for Digital Video Disc...but today it's Digital Versatile Disc.

so, u know, i'm all for a good owning when it's right. the joke was meant to be that we're cavemen for thinking Video.

I do not know what the correct one is. I use digital video disc cause it's what i'm used to. I think Kotte is wrong. But he is too nice and I would feel bad dropping ownage on his ass. I guess it's a matter of whatever the individual prefers.

I know this thread went off on a whole nother tangent, and that y'all really don't need me to tell you this, but DON'T spend any money on Laws of Attraction.

It really was by-the-numbers dreck that was lifted to a C-minus by a cast that was, mostly, much better than the material.

The only thing that made me a smile a bit was near the end, when Julianne Moore really needs a piece of information, and she tells an airlines employee, basically, "I need you to be that guy who helps me out." ... It seemed like a miniscule nod to Magnolia, but maybe I was just ready for the film to be over at that point.

I totally thought that too. I gave the movie an F+ for that line.
