Default Channels HD DVD

Story - [2/5] It was kind of a whimsical, poorly acted, what-if movie. I'm not sure whether it felt like I was watching an afterschool special with 40-something adults instead of pimply faced teenagers, or if it felt like I was watching a soft-core movie with no sex and nudity.

Video Quality - [1/5] It looked like an upconverted DVD. It was MPEG2. Actually, some of my upconverts look better. The style of the whole movie was hazy and blurry. I guess they did it to convey the whole dreamscape aspect. Yawn...

Audio Quality - [1/5] Two channel PCM or was it Dolby Digital plus. I can't remember. Okay, it was a dialog heavy movie. But, daaang...

Not recommended--glad I rented this from Netflix

Synposis: A successful producer has second thoughts about selling out his craft and scruples then falls in love with a character in a soap opera who magically appears out of his television set and into his life.

Extras--what? This disc had no advanced authoring whatsoever. Hitting the menu stopped the playback and went back to the movie.

The one saving grace about this disc is that stop-resume works!
