I haven't found an explanation for this anywhere. Does anyone know why all of Woody Allen's films have been released on dvd in mono? Is this a creative decision by Allen or something else?

I'm looking for high quality, reliable (since they'll end up having my credit card number) English-language sites that sell (and ship internationally) hard-to-find Japanese, Korean, Hong Kong movies on DVD. There are so
to do that. What do you recommend? Also, tangentially related: is there an all-English-language version of the very interesting Amazon.co.jp? My Japanese is close to non-existent thanks

In a moment of boredom I watched Cube 2: Hypercube
on SciFi and didn't understand very much of it. Why were they all there? What was the actual point of them being there? What was the necklace all about? Why did they shoot Katie? What was she actually trying to do? My question really is:
Does anyone know of any good websites where if you don't understand a film, someone else will tell you what it all meant?

I'm looking for documentary films about Edward Said. Preferably, I want something biographical about him, not films that feature him talking about issues. I'm already aware of several [listed inside] but if anyone can locate others, I'd be very grateful. [more inside]

Can anyone provide some good examples of films where new technology is depicted as being positive and beneficial. Essentially I want films that are the opposite of the "you're messing with things you don't understand - you're trying to play God!" kind. [more inside]

In the recent movie School of Rock
there's a scene where Jack Black's character is standing in front of a blackboard on which he's sketched out a history/taxonomy of rock music. Does anyone know how I'd go about getting a poster of this? [more inside]

Are there good biopics about any of the jazz greats? Or movies focused on the jazz scene? I know there are a ton of documentaries, I'm interested in fictionalized, "shoot the legend" type stuff.

Is there anywhere I can get a list of movies released theatrically in the US for 2003? I want to put together a Top 10 list, but can't remember many movies I saw this year. (Maybe that's a sign...) I know that you can get IMDB to list movies by year, by that lists EVERYTHING, and is much too long a list to wade through.

This has been bugging me for ages. Does anyone know why Elizabeth Perkins (Tom Hanks girlfriend in 'Big') appears on screen in press room towards the end of Michael Douglas big speech in 'The American President'? Was a whole sub-plot cut from that film or am I missing some other connection?

My mother is in her late sixties, and her kids just bought her a DVD player for her most recent birthday. Now she wants to know what movies we'd recommend she'd buy or rent. [More inside.] [more inside]
