    I saw one DVD case on ebay (I don't shop Amazon unless no choice) that holds 16. I would go to the thin cases, but, I keep losing them in between the regular ones, unless laying flat. I noticed that a lot of the DVDs I buy are in cases that have center clips not used that will hold insert (page?) that I could buy that would increase by 1 or 2 DVDS that are in the case. I remember buying some of my first DVDs in CD cases, I liked that at first.

    With the program that I am using to convert mp4 videos to DVD, I will be burning on one of my favorite 50's TV show, Space Patrol. I have over 30 episodes I downloaded, and so far only got 4 on DVD. I just burned 4 episodes of Tom Corbett Space Cadet, another good 50's series. The 50's had some of the best Sci-Fi, I'm guessing because of the optimism and fear for the future in the 21 Century and beyond. And we know how great the 60's were for Sci-Fi!
    I came across that when I was just searching for Earth II this morning, what a find! Can't wait to get that one, if one looks close enough you well see the Jupiter II model in the background when it shows Pacifica city...That's the last time the original model was seen until 1992 (search on youtub for jupiter ii original model) and someone trying to restore the model. It really was in bad shape, you'll see in the video.

    The 50's was the best, at lest for us kids (at the time) your right AZ both where in full swing! I had so much fun and imagination when I was a kid, I tried to do the same for my kids! all three do love movies but only my middle son has gone to collage for high tec learning and works for a high tec company. So all in all I think my kids had a great childhood too...none have said otherwise!

    I'm here laddie! had a wee bit to much at the last party! I woke up on the chamber (I'll talk about that later...may be) the inter mix is set right or I'll eat neutronium!

    All great movie's AZ! The Thing From Another World did they colorize it? because I remember it in black & white! which for me makes it more scary and suspenseful! I still remember when they colorized the three stooges shorts and Laurel & Hardy shorts and they all looked horrible! Freaken Ted Turner should have been shot for doing that...thank God turner does not own any media company's anymore.

    You got me worrying again about you!

    The color version was a Ted special, and I liked them. Ray Harryhausen supervised colorizing some of his movies, and the disc can be switched back and forth, I sill prefer the colorized.

    If you like Kung Fu movies and sort of bloody Horror, you might like Tsui Hark's Vampire Hunters. It is a very good movie, and I just watched it again last night (when Vampires are out), and it is not your typical teeth in neck Vampire movie, lot and lots of action, it is about a Master and his four students hunting a Vampire Master.

    we are having high humidity here (which is not normal) so I have a problem breathing (COPD) and need to stay indoors, AC going and on oxygen and all this makes me sleepy and slow to want to do anything. I'm doing better today, thanks for caring my friend

    Yes I do like movies of bloody Horror! along with Zombie movies (the good ones anyway...which is a very short list) I'll check that one out, sounds like John Carpenter "Vampires" which I really like...Thanks for the advise on movies! most of the ones others (that would be no body on this thread, but my family!) recommend are real stinkers and yawners!

    On the colorizing of B/W films....I don't know AZ, the ones I have seen just don't look right! something about it just does not look natural! maybe it's me? I don't know! but for me it takes away to much from the story, the feel of the film, drama, suspense!! like I said maybe it's just me...I'm a Originalist! Yeah I know, real life is in color but some films just look and feel better in B/W and some films look and feel better in color! I can't imagine watching Ben Hur in black and white! or any of the other classic 50's and 60's film's in Black and White (at lest the ones originally filmed in B/W) re-colorized! like I said, it's just me.

    I understand and will wait until you can post, and not worry, even tho I always worry. We, once again, have heat index warnings of 105, not use to that, AC feeling good now.

    I too, feel some of the colorization is off, but, I still like to see color. For Sci-Fi and fantasy, colorized seems to fit. Take on how they did The Wizard of OZ, started in sepia tone for reality and color for fantasy, that is the way I feel about colorizing.

    How do you like the Resident Evil movie series? I really like them, except for how they ended the series in the last movie. Really gross and really action excitement.

    Thanks my friend!

    Today is going to be 105 here to! unfortunately we have some overcast so the humidly is going to push the heat even higher, not looking forward to that. It's 10:20am here and it is already 93, yeah AC on and running! the major problem here is we live in a valley and the air quality goes down the toilet real fast and those with asthma or COPD really struggle to breathe...sucks but nothing we can do.

    For some reason the Wizard of Oz works for me! I think because the fantasy scenes where filmed in color not shot in b/w then colorized. The technology just is not there yet that can turn a b/w film into a natural looking color film. Kind of like taking a 35mm film and up scaling it to Blu-ray then to 4K, just looks like crap!

    I like the Resident Evil films, have not seen the last one yet, waiting for the price to come down more before I buy it and complete my collection...have the rest on Blu-ray. I heard that Paul W. S. Anderson and his wife Milla Jovovich are starting a new franchise based on capcom's "Monster Hunter" video games, we shell see how this goes!

    Take care of your self AZ and stay under the AC like me

    I checked out about "Monster Hunter", and in a sort of way it reminds me of my favorite video game, "Diablo". So, it look to be a good choice for a live movie to me, and I noticed it is an anime series, too.

    I am watching Gerry Anderson's UFO now, and I still haven't seen any strings coming out of the heads of the actors, nice job.(LOL!) So far, I have never found a Gerry Anderson produced show that I didn't like, even the unsold pilots.

    Scott, do you like anime? I remember my first, Astroboy, and since anime is from Japan, then would you not call Rankin and Bass's THE HOBBIT and 80'S THUNDERCATS anime since they were animated in Japan?

    Hmmm I never heard or played "Monster Hunter" I'm reading about the game now! interesting story. I played the first Diablo, but never got the chance to play any of the others (work).

    UFO is one of the best shows I ever saw as a teenager! never missed a episode and still watch it too. I've seen some of the other Gary Anderson shows, but Space 1999 and UFO are my favorite's. Every now and then "Comet TV" will show Thunderbirds Are Go or Thunderbird 6 movie's! which is nice to see again, oh they (Comet TV) has been showing "Flash Gorden" films! which has been nice seeing them again.

    I watched Thundercats (my kids wanted to see them) along with all from the 80's and 90's anime, some where really good and we all 4 enjoyed watching them, but then my kids grow up and everything changed...school, girls, dance's...the normal teenage things. Now they still watch these shows but with there kids and my grandkids don't like them and want to watch the newer stuff "Not this old stuff" as they put it or play with there phone or ipad LOL things never change.

    As for Diablo, started playing it in 1997 and last played last year. I lost count how many times I won the game, and love the Tristram town music. Diablo II has better play, just don't like how you clear out an area and next time you play you have to clear it out again, unlike Diablo.

    Kids and their phones, I'm glad I never got one.

    As for anime, the older stuff is better, when they started mixing cell art and CGI, not too good. Some of my favorite one are, Robotech, Hellsing (vampires), Captain Harlock, The Slayers(sword & sorcery comedy with Lina Inverse) Tenchi Muyo (comedy with teen boy and alien girls) and Record of Lodoss War (more sword & sorcery serious).

    "Not this old stuff"! I have always loved "old stuff" starting as a teen, and prefer it still. Give me Dragnet, The Lone Ranger, Flash Gordon, movie serials, Bugs Bunny, and so on.

    Some games are just so much fun to play and I count how many games I have won and still continue to play them today! I'm just amassed they still run under windows 10 and still play great.

    Most people don't have a home (land line) phone anymore! I don't and my oldest son and middle son doesn't have one either! we all use our cell phones, my youngest still has a land line phone at his house.

    We love the old stuff too! much better then the CGI crap they use today, yeah I love the old TV shows you mentioned above as well, plus 1 Adam 12, hell you can't find the old Bugs Bunny cartoons from World War II (to political incorrect for today...what a load of BS) I love those from that time period! luckily I found them on YouTube and downloaded them all. At lest we can still get the old Jackie Chan movies, along with so many more before the libs make them illegal!

    Yep, just waiting for the shipment of Quadrotriticale to arrive. How are you doing in the heat wave?

    I just finished the 1st season of Hercules with Kevin Sorbo. I only bought the 1st season, now I wished I bought the rest.

    Also, watched one of our favorite Star Trek Animated episodes, YESTERYEAR. Somewhere packed up, I have the storyboards from the whole episode I bought from Lincoln Enterprise.

    Speaking of Lincoln Enterprise, when I bought stuff from then in the 70's, they sent as a freebie, a black and white photo of the cast of the TV series Search, and a color photo of Asmodeus from Specre, and I still have both.

    Too angry to transcribe my 32 years of built-up poetry and submit it to a publisher, because my countrymen are stupid jerks who don't deserve to read it

    I am kind of burned out on all forms of entertainment at this point. The only medicine I think would help is laughter, which I don't think I can get from anyone but my family anymore, who are all likewise kind of freaking out and/or being stupid jerks.

    Basically the United States of StupidJerk...these people never cracked open a book of poetry in their life, gawd

    Welcome to the thread Thief! Yes we discuss Star Trek and just about every sci-fi related TV show, Movie...you name it!

    Mike Okuda and his wife are okay, there just 2 people that have been around longer then the others (most have passed away) and star trek has now fallen to JJ and we all have seen what he has done to our beloved star trek. Most of us here have watched the original show since the beginning (1968) and yes I am a old (60) and do not like what JJ has done to it. But all in all we try and keep the original idea alive...anyway welcome and have fun.

    I'm doing okay, staying indoors as much as I can...another 108 today, that makes 23 straight days of double digit heat! Can't wait for winter lol!

    Hercules was a good show! just could not get into it, I occasionally watched it. Same can be said about Xena warrior princess! for what I have seen at my local Rasputin store you can pickup both series fairly cheap! If it goes to Blu-ray all bets are off

    Majel Roddenberry made a killing off of Lincoln Enterprises! I know I had there catalog too and bought a ton of stuff off them! I still have one of the film cells of the Enterprise blown-up, framed and hanging on my wall! I still have one of there Exploration patches "science" framed as well, most of the other stuff has been lost or taken over the years...sadly. I wonder what they are worth today? if one does a google search all this stuff is all over the internet today! I get emails every day from companies wanting to sell me Star Trek stuff, pictures,patches,models,model kits, you name it...even Starship dedication plaques (which I would love to have) the prices are not that bad, it's just wall space...lol

    Scott, I too, still have the patches, and the two Kung Fu patches they sold and still got tons of film clips, unfortunately turning red with age.

    I have a resin Enterprise Dedication Plaque hanging on my wall, which I bought off of ebay many years ago and above that, the cutaway poster of the NCC-1701.

    You are a little older than me, I turn 60 in September, where has the time gone....damned Klingons!

    The film cell I bought a long time ago is starting to show it's age, the others I keep in a strong box so the sun light has not gotten to them yet. I guess the only way to preserve them is to put them in very expensive display case's that cut out the infrared light (which is what destroys pictures, film and all the other stuff) I just take them out when someone wants to see them.

    I'm about a year older then you, because my birthday is in September too! this year I'll be 61, damn Klingon's is right! they will prematurely age a person in no time.

    Scott, my filmclips are in half mount 35mm slide mounts in binders and rarely exposed light, and they still turned red. I tried to use my limited software to clean up the colors, no luck.

    OLDER? You were Walking With Dinosaurs, 65 Million years ago! I just hung out with a wooly mammoth, a sloth and a sabertooth tiger.

    Are you in danger of the fires? I got flash floods going on, and cooler because of them.

    Okay must be the film emulsion! If I remember right these are copies of the original 35 mm print and who knows how cheap Majel went to make these copies!

    Older by one year LOL I used to tell my mothers friends and doctors she was a day older then dirt! so Yes I rode a wooly mammoth! stayed warm and made tracks to better, warmer area's loooool

    No, about 2 to 3 hours away from me, thou we are getting the smoke here and is making the air very heard to breathe and when we have double digit heat (102 today) it makes for a real pain in the butt place to live.

    flash floods! holy crap man, don't get swapped away! I hope your on higher ground? I don't know whats worse, smoke and 102 heat or flooding! next it well be dogs and cats living together! Take care of your self my friend and stay safe
