    A Few Words About A few words about…™ Lawrence of Arabia - in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    I don't know what issues may exist with the hdr on Sony projectors, mine(VPL-VW695ES) didn't seem to exhibit anything other than lovely dr, @ 158". I don't think I've ever seen any uhd like this. I own many, but none of them ever gave me goose pimples head to toe every 5 minutes from the...

    A Few Words About A few words about…™ Lawrence of Arabia - in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    I've watched loa twice now and I'm still slack jawed. So very stunning. I watched once on my projector, 158", and again on my Samsung Q9, 65".

    A Few Words About A few words about…™ To Catch a Thief (redux) – in Blu-ray

    Brightening is but one of many issues with this disc, shameful.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ The Daniel Craig Collection -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    Don't know why folks had any issues with these discs. I played all 4 discs on my bedroom player (oppo 203) and my ht player(205) and I didn't have a single issue, and fw is current. They all look beautiful, although I'd rate Spectre beyond that, somewhere in the "Stunning" category.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Universal Horror Collection: Volume 3 - in Blu-ray

    These great films do look a little rough, but I'm beyond happy to have then on blu. They don't look too awful projected; I've seen better; and worse. I don't have the dvds to compare, but I'd imagine there's gotta be at least some improvement.

    UHD Review Suspiria – UHD Review

    One little part of the review confused me; "Was the first film to employ three strip Technicolor, as made famous by the Wizard of Oz". Kind of sounds to me like Wizard of Oz used it first then, yeah?

    Alfred Hitchcock films in 4K??

    Well, the gain of projecting a uhd that has near the native resolution of the film it was shot on. How can a 4K scan and subsequent uhd & hdr encoding be a bad thing for any Hitchcock film? As long as the scanning element is decent anyway. I acknowledge some of Hitchcocks films probably need...

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Suspiria (1977) -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    No, it didnt overpower the mix,(i shouldn't write when I'm sleepy) just namely the score during the opening credits. There were moments throughout that I felt were too heavy. I would expect as much though from Atmos. Having watched the film through every iteration from vhs copies of copies, to...
