    Again- this is someone else's opinion, your "high standards" notwithstanding. Chariots of Fire- academy award winner-- highly ranked. BORING. No thanks. Many comedies are panned upon release, but gain higher and higher rankings over time.

    TiVo has little to do with it.

    TiVo owners complain about ANYTHING and EVERYTHING
    ESPECIALLY, TiVo owners who never had a cable DVR.

    Now if I could create a wishlist that would match my favorite critic's reviews, and only take -his- two star or better movies, that would be great.

    Because ReplayTV was superior in every way. Hence Replay vs Tivo. Vhs/ Beta. Didnt Tivo almost go bankrupt as well.

    Replay was not superior in every way, although it did have some very nice features, especialy its "hive mind" capabilities. Beta was definitey not superior in every way. First of all, it was a locked down, proprietary format, and that is a *HUGE* negative. Although Betamax was capable of significantly better reproduction quality, this capability came at a significant price in other areas - one of them being price. Beta was also not capable of the amount of storage VHS was, and in a medium designed to support unattended recording, that is a big problem.
