    Press Release Warner Archive Press Release: The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex (1939) (Blu-ray)

    iirc, but I'm not sure I'm remembering this correctly, Carbon arc shifts about +600K , but the carbon arc reflector shifts back about -200K, so at most a +400K difference in projection. Coatings on the projection lens probably are negligible +/- 50K iirc Xenon projection, and I may be badly...

    Criterion Blu-ray titles!

    I’m gonna predict: Until the end of the world #999 Roma and the Cameraman (998 & 1000, either could be 1000), & the Godzilla Showa set which could be no spine number like the Bergman set, or could be another good candidate for spine 1000 And haxan upgraded to blu ray.

    Your current GAS list?

    the crop factor wouldn't bother me that much, and I can pocket the crop factor (not wide enough for her) as a future rationale to talk the wife into upgrading to the L 24-105 or a wide L zoom.

    Your current GAS list?

    thanks, all, I think I figured out I no longer want the 6D mark ii body and will probably upgrade to FF mirrorless and adaptor down the road. The nice thing is that I can use EFS lenses on the mirrorless, as well as my EF lenses, which I wouldn't be able to do on the 6D.

    I loved "The Art of Subtitling" extra on Panique--Several years ago, SMPTE updated their _Title Safe_ requirements for 16:9 Televisions from the traditional 20% down a title safe of only 10%. Does criterion have any plans on making use of these modernized title safe standards for their blu ray...

    Your current GAS list?

    I got bit bad by the GAS bug a couple weeks ago. dont know what triggered it. We've got a canon 70D, and initially I wanted to get a macro lens. back in my manual focus, film shooting days I had Canon's old FD 100mm Macro lens, so I was itching to get the equivalent that. Then upon doing some...

    UHD Review Blade Runner 2049 UHD Review

    I got a 4k release of this for christmas from my mom, but the packaging does not anywhere indicate if it also comes with a digital copy and or blu ray. Does it? I don't yet have a 4k player, though I have a 4k TV now (probably why she thought to get the 4k version) I'd hate to open it and then...

    Pre-Order Celebrating Mickey (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    I don't think this is all that definitive, the first one, from the Treasure DVDs, the sky has the kind of color artifacting you get when your colorist boosts the saturation of SD color gamut media past 135% in symphony. It also looks like it's had aggressive digital contrast adjustments and a...

    All I got was his girl Friday, FilmStruck has let me watch some films I'd have blind bought instead (like black girl and something wild), so I wasn't in a buying mood to drop 50 for free shipping. I too hope they release more eclipse titles, the eighteen month gap means I finally caught up on...

    Criterion Blu-ray titles!

    Disagree, this is the first month of 2017 to have any "must buys" for me, other than dheepan and ghost world, I'll probably get all of the months releases. Well, black girl was a must buy, but I watched it on FilmStruck, I might buy it for the features because the film was so freaking great and...

    Josh's Blind Buys: Watching The Unseen Collection

    A four or five years ago, I started on this same project, just blind buys that had remained unseen. I started on it and a few weeks in, I canceled Netflix because I was preferentially watching those discs rather than the ones I already owned. Many hundreds of films later, I finished the project...
