Probably the same reviewers that claim speaker wire dances or sparkles. I guess a short could make them sparkle \:D

Aren't they quoting reviews most of the time? It would be interesting to read the reviews they're referencing, though, and see how many sound a bit different in context. But yeah, more than anything it just makes movie critics sound like they can't come up with new ways to describe movies. I guess if they could write, they wouldn't be critics.

Advertising departments/companies? ;\)

The best ones are from the old movie trailers. It’s hard to believe people didn’t laugh themselves out of their seats when you see/hear some of those things. I’m sure people will some day be laughing at what we all watched.

I just updated my firmware this afternoon and this is a pretty cool feature. I have a sample size of one entire movie but it worked for that one. \:\)

I tried terminator salvation on my ps3 and it had the subs half in the picture and half in the black bars, there for projecting onto my wall. I then put it in the Oppo, held the subtitle button, pushed the up button a couple of times and presto! Subs in the picture. This was on the blu ray version.

It seems that the firmware update containing the subtitle shift option is now official. I think it was official on Tuesday. I turned on my player last night and it automatically asked if I wanted to update. The funny thing is, I rented a Coffin Joe movie from Netflix that arrived on Tuesday and it needed this subtitle shift option to view the film with the correct aspect ratio on my TV. Running into movies that need this option are quite rare.


So have you tried it yet? This feature is has been desired by 2.35 scope screen users for years. If it works well, the Oppo will be on 2.35 user’s most wanted list for sure. I know I’ve wanted this for quite some time. I just keep forgetting to plug the Oppo into the lan to download the update.

The rest of you old farts are dating yourselves. (coming from a 40 something old fart granfather)


This weekend I watched a Blu-Ray and two DVD's that had subtitles. I used the feature and it worked perfect.
