Disney’s new “Signature Collection” of 1950’s Cinderella also carries the moniker of “Anniversary Edition,” so I guess this release is in honor of the film’s 69th anniversary.
Peter Pan, as directed in 1924 by Herbert Brenon, had an odd bit of casting, as Peter was played by the diminutive Betty Bronson, and gave its lead her first starring role. Come to think of it, Peter was played by two other actresses, for television broadcast, three and nine […]

Hollywood rag IndieWire reported over the weekend that David Lynch had dropped something of a bombshell on his Twitter account concerning the release this coming week of his film Lost Highway on Blu-ray.

There was a time, not too long ago, where the streaming apps included with your Blu-ray player were all you needed. Nearly every player had, at the minimum, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Vudu, and Hulu. For the most part, the streaming quality was very good regardless of the model of […]
Why UHD Blu-rays aren’t actually 4K | Upscaled For high-resolution video and TV, 4K has pretty much become the default, but not for long. At IFA in 2018 we even saw companies talking about 8K, and Japan’s public broadcaster, NHK, has promised to film and broadcast the 2020 olympics in […]
After a very successful run during the 1960’s, Hammer Films began to run into trouble in the 1970’s; fortunes were not what it used to be, as the market was saturated with rival companies in the horror trade and the company was in threat of going under. Seeking to boost […]
