I am looking for PG or PG-13 movies that will interest 6-yr-olds and 46-yr-olds. It's easy enough to find the big blockbusters (like Avatar, Pirates of the Carribean, X-Men - all of which fit the bill for us), but I'd like to find movies that don't show up in searches as often (Mission to Mars with Tim Robbins was a recent one that we liked.) Thanks!

When I purchase an on-demand movie from Blockbuster on Tivo, why do I receive only the "letterboxed" (480i) version instead of the "full-screen" 1080 HD? I understand the ratio/aspect reasoning behind letterboxing but I find it hard to watch at my viewing distance from the screen. Is there a way to change the settings to receive full-screen HD or are only "letterboxed" versions available from Blockbuster on Tivo? My search for an answer has been fruitless. I have a 46" Sharp 1080P HDTV and use RCN cable. Thanks.

Apparently, I owe a blockbuster debt of $38 to a collection agency. I feel I've been screwed but that is irrelevant. I just want to pay the debt and never do business there again. The problem: The agency called last month when I was traveling, I didn't want to deal with it then, and now I've lost their number. How can I find out what collection agency they sent me account to and pay this debt off? Note: I have asked at the store and the employee told me, "the collection agency will call you back"...

Netflix vs. Blockbuster - Who's got more Bluray? Not counting bias either way, looking for the raw numbers.

OK, not really stealing, just curious. I rented a DVD from Blockbuster the other day only to find (on returning home) that the clerk had not removed the yellow security tab. On calling the store, I was given the go-ahead to cut the box apart so I could watch the movie without making the trek back. It was easy enough to cut it open from the other side, but it's made me really curious about that security tab, which I thought would come apart much more easily. Which brings me to the question, which has been brewing in the back of my head forever ... does anyone know how these things work, exactly? The best I've been able to discern so far is that magnets

So, I think I am going to subscribe to a DVD rental service. Now, I would like some advice on which service to use. I have narrowed the list down to Netflix
. Opinions on either of these two services? [more inside]
