I've basically stopped watching the IDOL results show. Since the season hasn't produced anyone I've really enthusiastic about, the results and all the accompanying filler just hasn't been of interest.

Opens up a large chunk of time in the evening to watch DVDs and other shows on the DVR. Now, on Wednesday, my TV choices are relegated to 10 p.m.

If the Disney Blu-rays arrive today, I'll be starting with SHALL WE DANCE (which actually arrived in stores yesterday). To get a jump on the review, I was listening to the audio commentary on the old sDVD this morning during my workout since I had never bothered listening to it before. I'll check, of course, to make sure the commentary is the same on the Blu-ray (I suspect they've justed ported over everything from the DVDs onto the Blu-ray. That's certainly what Disney has done with their other catalog titles that have come to Blu-ray.)

Speaking of "Call Me Irresponsible," that being name Best Song at the Oscars of 1963 was one of the true jaw-dropping moments of my teen years watching the Oscars. I was absolutely certain "Charade" would win. Not that "Call Me Irresponsible" isn't a wonderful song; it certainly is, but I've always though "Charade" one of the loveliest of all of Mancini's songs.

I suspect had he not won the previous two years for "Moon River" and "Days of Wine and Roses," he might have won for "Charade." Astonishing that he didn't win another Oscar for twenty years - the song score for VICTOR/VICTORIA.

I'm off to see if anyone from my hiking group shows up on this dreary, slightly wet morning.  If not I'll hike on my own.  I'll be back before Keith leaves for the gym, that way one of us is around to prevent Sherlock from licking his foot.

I have the Rudolph Valentino movies from yesterday which I recorded and also last night's SVU to watch today. Of course, Blu-rays will take priority, but if they don't arrive, this should fill out the day nicely.

I'll see SVU regardless since that's what I'll watch while I'm eating lunch.

Question for HHW DVD collectors:

Next week, Warners is releasing a bunch of Frank Sinatra-themed box sets. I don't want any of the sets, but they're also releasing many of the films in single releases.

Now my question concerns ROBIN AND THE SEVEN HOODS. Warners already released this once on DVD and I'm guessing this is only going to be repackaged with new cover art for the box and new single release.

Is ROBIN AND THE SEVEN HOODS an anamorphically enhanced DVD? I have no interest in it if it's not. I have it on laserdisc and can be content with that if the DVD isn't anamorphic. Does anyone have the previous release and know for sure what its specs are?

Thanks in advance.

It uses a blue laser beam to read the disc contents. I don't find it any dumber than other brand name/trade names.

I just reviewed the Early Films set.  But of course that doesn't answer your question.   :)

Perhaps they'll change it soon.

Funny thing:  One of the CRITICISMS Blu-ray fans leveled at HD DVD was that HD DVD was too hard to say and that Blu-ray is more memorable and rolls off the tongue (I'm not sure what kind of tongue that is, though).

Odd, though, now that DVDs being issued in Blu-ray are being advertised as ",,,available Tuesday on 'Blu-ray HD DVD'!"

Blu-ray is not doing very well, it seems.  Disney has called for a significant drop in player prices.  Could it be that the much-more-expensive-to-produce-than-HD-DVD Blu-rays may see a significant cutback in number of titles released if the market doesn't perk up?

Ah, thanks, DR derBrucer. I checked the description of the new one which was not complete. I read through the reviews and no one mentioned that it wasn't anamorphic. So, that makes my mind up. Thanks again.
