    Physical Media might not be dead, but Physical Media in Retail Stores are accelerating the death

    My niece must have around a billion digital photos of her son who's now 16. I told her that she should really pick out a couple of hundred of the best ones & go to a photo shop & get prints done (on non-fade paper) & put them in a photo book. I'm thinking that if something happens to the files...

    Kino-Lorber Insider Announcement Thread (Read Guidelines Post #3)

    Yup, Eleanor Parker was just so classy in every film she was in.

    Physical Media might not be dead, but Physical Media in Retail Stores are accelerating the death

    Who'd have thought that physical media was just a passing phase (well, with music, a rather long phase, first LP 1948 & CDs are only a couple of years away from their 40th birthday). Maybe movies & TV series are on the cusp (will these new epic fantasy TV series be released on Blu-ray like Game...

    Is Paris Burning? (1966) restored in 4K

    Ha, I saw it on Talking Pictures TV, a really old transfer sharpened to infinity, the picture just shimmered. What I found a bit off-putting was the very loose lip-sync, a lot (all?) of it was obviously re-voiced, & probably not by the actor onscreen (but then I only saw about 20 minutes of it)...

    Is Paris Burning? (1966) restored in 4K

    "The OCN has disappeared". Well if the restoration is based on a shortened copy of the OCN, it hasn't all gone, & I'd think a third generation is a negative made from a fine grain pos. made from the OCN, which could look very good. Anyway, all good news. Could it be that we'll have a Blu-ray of...

    Warner Bros Archive Wish List 2022 and Beyond!!

    Yup, I'd love to see a decent HD of She (1965). I haven't seen an acceptable transfer since I saw it at the pictures a lifetime ago. Not exactly a lost masterpiece, but I really like it & it would fill a big She sized gap in the Hammer catalogue.

    International Get Carter BFI 4K UHD & Blu-ray

    Yup, I agree as well. It's such a relentlessly bleak film. I enjoyed it at the cinema at the time & occasionally watch it on TV (I don't always make it to the end), it seems like a strange choice for 4K, all grain & not much colour.

    Warner Bros Archive Wish List 2022 and Beyond!!

    I'm starting to doubt if those two lovely epics, Land Of The Pharaohs & Helen Of Troy will ever be released, but I have been suckered into thinking that I'll have Scaramouche before too long, what with those other Technicolor swashbucklers getting a WAC release.

    UHD Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ - Event Horizon -- in 4k UHD

    I quite like this & would buy the 4K, but I'm not paying the big bucks for the lovely packaging (which I couldn't care less about). I'll see what the price is like in a years time.

    Press Release USHE Press Release: A Connecticut Yankee In King Arthur's Court (1949) (Blu-ray)

    Oh I dunno, I was very pleased with the Blu-ray of Unconquered (1947), although Robert Harris was less than impressed. If it's the same upgrade from the DVD as that film, then I'll be happy...& anyway, it's going to look miles better than those old Fox Technicolor films transferred from those...

    The 100 Greatest Action Movies on Blu-ray

    Ah, I don't see Bad Boys 2 on the list! The film may be ridiculous, but by god does it have some action in it. The whole scene near the beginning, the shoot-out that turns into a car chase, which really ramps up as they're on the bridge, finishing up in that old house with the camera rotating...

    Press Release USHE Press Release: A Connecticut Yankee In King Arthur's Court (1949) (Blu-ray)

    I see it's up for pre-order on Wow, where I usually buy American Blu-rays, but no rush to order, I'll wait 'till we know a bit more.

    Press Release USHE Press Release: A Connecticut Yankee In King Arthur's Court (1949) (Blu-ray)

    Ha, I'd think it's odds on that it's the same transfer, they can't all be like Warner Archive releases. Anyway, I'm hoping for the best, & less than perfection will be okay (I can't even remember if I've seen it in colour, I think the last time I saw it was on TV in the sixties, before the UK...

    A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court (1949) on Bluray?

    Ha, I always want to see reviews first, except for WAC, I think they've earned a bit of trust.

    A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court (1949) on Bluray?

    Ooo, I've just seen (over at blu-ray.com) that Universal are releasing this on August 23rd (three Bing films along with, Here Is My Heart (1934) & Welcome Stranger (1947). A pleasant surprise in these grim times. https://forum.blu-ray.com/showthread.php?t=353584
