Subtitle The Last Boy Scout

The 50GB dual layer Blu-ray disc does not appear to be Region locked. Popping the disc into your player immediately brings you to a main menu for both films. Selecting either film opens a submenu with language and scene selections, as well as the option to go to the other film. With my PS3, taking the disc out and later playing it restarts either film where you last played it.

subtitle The Last Boy Scout

'Last Man Standing' (4/5). Audiophiles, you're in for some fun. With a powerful 5.1 DTS-MA Surround Sound mix, 'Last Man Standing' and it's lossless audio are the highlight of this double feature. Standards like clear and well-mixed dialogue are a given, but your speakers are about to be treated to 90 minutes of gunfire and splintering glass. Built out of deep lows and crystal clear highs, the mix has wonderful fidelity, and uses all your speakers in specific, direct ways. Every time another baddie was blasted into the air by Willis' .45 caliber pistols, I wanted to cheer because of the roaring tones. And then I would marvel when something subtle would move past the sound field to my back or sides. The mix overall could be more aggressive for an action film. Modern movies certainly exhibit more range in exploring different sounds (both in the literal sense of what is recorded, and how it then pans around the soundscape), but having heard other action pictures of the late '90s, this one is a winner.'The Last Boy Scout' (3.5/5) also comes with an active 5.1 DTS-MA track. In analyzing the audio portion of this review, I was reminded of an interesting thing about the relative nature of reviewing Blu-rays. Having watched 'Last Man Standing' first, 'The Last Boy Scout' does not compete in the audio or video department, but in comparing 'The Last Boy Scout' against the DVD's lossy 5.1 Dolby Digital mix, it's clear how much added value comes with this new release. In watching key scenes, most notably Chapter 6 (called "Kaboom!" on the DVD), the exploding car sounded decent in the DD version, but in DTS-MA, was more detailed, rolling through the front channels eliciting a powerful roar from the flames. Much like the video portion, the best thing about 'The Last Boy Scout' is that it's a instantly recognizable upgrade to all previous releases. That being said, it's a pretty average mix. The dialogue is clear, but like any film from 1991, it's more akin to a front heavy stereo mix. Further, the available fidelity and dynamic range on hand feel compressed.

Due to the nature of the laserdiscs, audio and subtitles are not changeable. They will have English audio for sure. Most of them will have Japanese subtitles since they are Japanese prints. Some may have bilingual (English and Japanese) audio and can be changed on your player.

Each film receives a DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio track in English with optional subtitles offered up in English, French and Spanish. The audio for Last Man Standing sounds decent enough with some impressive surround usage spreading out the effects and the score quite well. Bass response is strong, you'll notice it during the shoot out sequences, while the levels are generally well balanced. Dialogue is easy enough to understand and there aren't any problems with hiss or distortion to note. While the mix here may not be on the same level as a more modern action film, it does sound quite good.

Title 36 is comprised of three subtitles: Subtitle I: Patriotic and National Observances and Ceremonies; Subtitle II: Patriotic and National Organizations; and Subtitle III: Treaty Obligation Organizations. This report addresses Subtitle II, which includes 92 congressionally chartered corporations.5

The chartering by Congress of organizations with a patriotic, charitable, historical, educational, or other eleemosynary purpose is essentially a 20th century practice. Title 36 of the U.S. Code, where such corporate organizations are listed with their charters, was revised in 1998 (P.L. 105-225;112 Stat. 1253), and in the process three subtitles of nonprofit corporate organizations were listed:

In the 106th Congress, a new entry was included in Part B of subtitle II of Title 36, the National Recording Preservation Foundation (Foundation). The background for this Foundation requires some explanation. A National Recording Registry (established under P.L. 106-474; 2 U.S.C. 1701) is to be housed in the Library of Congress and managed by the Librarian of Congress through an adjunct organization of the Library titled the National Recording Preservation Board (Board). This Board consists of 17 members, selected by the Librarian from the organizations listed in the statute. Personnel working for the Board are appointed by the Librarian and are employees of the United States.

In the 106th Congress, there was a controversy involving the Boy Scouts of America (36 U.S.C. 309) with legislation introduced to revoke its congressional charter. The Supreme Court in Boy Scouts of America v. Dale (120 S.Ct. 2446 (2000)) ruled that the Boy Scouts of America were within their First Amendment rights as a private organization to exclude from a leadership position a person who was in fundamental disagreement with its purposes as an organization. In this case, the facts were that the Boy Scouts of America removed from an assistant scout master position a young man who professed and practiced a homosexual lifestyle. The national organization argued that this individual, whatever his personal merits, had no "right" to hold a leadership position in an organization which disavowed that lifestyle. The individual involved, James Dale, and some supporting organizations, argued that as assistant scout master, Dale had performed his assigned responsibilities well and that his lifestyle, irrespective of being contrary to one of the purposes of the organization, was not a legitimate grounds to deny him a position of leadership. To do so denied Dale his rights under New Jersey's public accommodations law. The issue, Dale's attorneys argued, was not a constitutional, First Amendment question.

In some cases, Title 36 corporations have ceased to exist without congressional action. The Grand Army of the Republic (43 Stat. 458) and the United Spanish War Veterans (54 Stat. 152) ceased to exist once their last members died. A similar fate awaits the Veterans of World War I (36 U.S.C. 2303) of the United States, whose membership has dwindled from over 800,000 to less than a dozen.31 041b061a72
