    Pre-Order 2001: A Space Odyssey (4k UHD) Available for Preorder

    I just spoke with my friend who saw it at Air and Space’s 4K laser IMAX last night. He loved it and was blown away. He’s not one to watch films for technical issues (he simply gets too engrossed, as one should!). He pointed out two things that stood out, one he thought was good (folks here may...

    Pre-Order 2001: A Space Odyssey (4k UHD) Available for Preorder

    I want to thank many folks in this thread for your detailed insights, laudatory and critical alike. I was finally able to see this last night with a friend at a 2K IMAX. Yes, there are quibbles but what an immense treat. “Don’t let the great be the enemy of the [very] good” indeed. For me...

    Pre-Order 2001: A Space Odyssey (4k UHD) Available for Preorder

    Thanks for this post. So far it’s been the best, most specific reporting I’ve encountered. Two friends who can’t coordinate want to see it and one only has today open. Looks like I may go twice. If so, that justifies a 3-month go at A-List. I realize you have no magical knowledge but if I...

    Official KINO Insider Announcements Thread: STRICTLY MODERATED: READ GUIDELINES

    Thank you! This was my only stumbling block. Can't wait to finally retire my DVD.

    Oppo Releases UDP-203 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player

    Sorry for the lag. I'm a born lurker... and forgetful! I don't have it in front of me but I'd describe it as quick access key to toggling many basic settings (like 3D). I'm new to the Hub-based Harmony so I'm outta my depth. My understanding is that the 203 programming was pretty much the...

    Oppo Releases UDP-203 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player

    Thanks for this post. Nice to hear it's working well. Below are my similar impressions and, near the end, a question and setting tip. (Also, thanks for years of roundups!) Like you, I'm not the ideal person to elaborate on PQ/AQ but I've found this player absolutely matches the performance...

    Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan: Director's Cut (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    In case this may reassure anyone about their own replacement, here is my timeline: June 22 (the day the program was announced) I emailed them my info. June 29 they responded via email about how it'll work. July 7 I received the FedEx mailer to send out my copy. July 7 I sent it the same day...

    Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan: Director's Cut (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    I like to think it's a sly homage to Filmation's recycled footage and shots with characters' mouths obscured to conceal such shots with dialogue. Bravo, sirs!

    Scott Atwell Star Trek Discussion thread (Series and Films)

    When I bought the Blu-ray (specifically for this episode's extended cut and commentary) I hadn't seen "Measure of a Man" possibly since a syndicated rerun ages ago -- certainly before I became a film buff. When I watched the closing last year I was immediately struck with a familiarity in the...

    The Official Star Trek Music Discussion Thread

    Flawlessly logical. I only wish I could find pdf files of the booklets online. I've given up trying to read most CD booklets. Of all things, I've had the hardest time with the FSM Trek II set. My booklet had several pages with unreadably blurry text. I was able to get a replacement booklet...

    The Official Star Trek Music Discussion Thread

    I'd say thank you but your post just cost me $192; I finally plunked down for the 15 CD Star Trek TOS soundtrack set. I've been holding off since having is sometimes not so pleasurable as wanting… or something like that. LLAP, sir.
