    General Discussion Digital Movie/TV Deals

    Thank you for the detailed comments! I love the community on here. I'm getting Predators 4k digital right now, based on this info. Will hold off on the other for now.

    General Discussion Digital Movie/TV Deals

    Any recommendations on 4K quality for either the original Predator ($4.99) or Goodfellas ($6.99)? Both have iTunes extras and tempted on both. Yet still have an unwrapped Goodfellas Blu-ray. How stupid am I?

    GILLIGAN'S ISLAND - DVD SEASON & SERIES SETS (2004-2012) - Pros, Cons, Incongruities & Imponderables

    The complete series in HD is on sale at iTunes for $29.99. It looks fantastic. The HD color episodes in particular are a revelation. It's a blast revisiting old series like this in HD. Why are there not more classic series available in digital HD? They are also a lot more fun to watch than...

    Spinal Tap II (2024)

    A scene should include an induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. For simply being around too long. Perhaps Artie Fufkin could give the induction. Then some jamming with Paul McCartney, Dave Grohl, Eddie Vedder and others. The thank you speeches would be hilarious.

    Apple TV 4K official

    The Apple TV isn't syncing what I watch from the app on the Roku Ultra, over to our primary Apple TV device. I normally watch Apple TV+ shows on our home theater. But sometimes I'll watch part of an episode on the bedroom set (using the Apple TV app on a Roku Ultra). When I go back to the...

    Ozark - Season 4

    The past decade has seen a lot of series about unlikeable, bad and unredeemable characters. There's really only one outcome all of these horrible characters deserve. I think the ending of Ozark was a way to differentiate this from the way many of these other series ended. Perhaps its time we...

    Netflix Netflix (once again) Raises All Subscription Plans in U.S.

    I cannot imagine ever subscribing to cable tv again. Ever. Not under any circumstances. Good gosh, cable tv is a vast wasteland of ad-infested channels offered via a never-ending, deceitful pricing shell game. We have Netflix, HBO Max and AppleTV+. This gives us excellent quality & variety...

    General Discussion Streaming Frustrations, Part 2

    What is up suddenly with the Amazon Prime interface on Apple TV? We only subscribe to Prime for a month, maybe twice a year. Suddenly, they have implemented their own custom interface which overrides Apple TV's slick & consistent interface. The Amazon interface is terrible. The "swipe down"...

    I'm looking at this 14 film set...all 14 are listed as HD - none listed as 4K. I wonder why if some are available in 4K now.

    Kung Fu (1972)

    The complete series is available in HD on iTunes. Thought about getting it. Anyone know if season 1 in OAR or is it widescreen here as well?

    Netflix Netflix Series - Stranger Things 4

    Even when a show drops all at once, I don't binge it. First of all, I do other things in life besides watch TV for more than an hour or two a day. I also kind of like spreading out a show, one episode a week. HBO Max and Apple TV+ release 2 or 3 episodes at once, so people can get up and...

    UHD Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ Almost Famous & Untitled Bootleg Cut -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    Thanks for the tip! It worked. I see that text now - but it's literally microscopic, in ALL CAPS and then the impossible to read, white-text-on-black-background. But thanks! Redeems the theatrical in 4K. Bootleg is included as an extra but only in HD. This movie has had so multiple...

    UHD Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ Almost Famous & Untitled Bootleg Cut -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    Really? That would be nice. However, I tried this multiple times on the iTunes Store and it says it is invalid. I haven't used the code anywhere else yet. Is Paramount still doing this? I don't mean to derail this thread but I can't find any other information about entering Paramount...

    UHD Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ Almost Famous & Untitled Bootleg Cut -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    Whatever. It's ridiculous the studios cannot come up with a standard which will work for everyone. Movies Anywhere and its forefathers are all essentially ignored by the public. No one I know outside of forums like this even know what it means. I was hoping to add this classic film to my...

    UHD Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ Almost Famous & Untitled Bootleg Cut -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    The non-steel book US release came out today & includes 4k discs of both theatrical and bootleg versions, as well as 4k digital. I stupidly opened it before realizing it is Paramount, so the digital won't work with iTunes and Movies Anywhere. What is wrong with the studios? Why can't...
