    THE CARDINAL - 1963

    There are some great actors in The Cardinal: Tom Tyron, John Huston, Romy Schneider, Carol Lynley, Burgess Meredith, Ossis Davis, Robert Morse and more. I’ve loved the film since original release. The 2003 2 DVD WB reissue was a very nice presentation and the DVD is decent unconverted...

    UHD Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ -The Godfather(s) 50th Anniversary Restoration -- in 4k UHD

    Following this discussion brought me back to 1977 when the films were first (I think) shown on TV. I had to rent a color TV as all I had was a little Black and White set. So I get the rental RCA set in the house. Then the presentation came on, pan and scan I’m sure. But the color was all off...

    Which begs the question, how much did it cost to restore Grimm?

    Blu-ray Review The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm Blu-ray Review

    Grimm’s restoration is remarkable. Love it. On How the West Was Won, I wish they had fixed that opening aerial which has the spots on the window or something. Always takes me out of the restoration. Wish the Grimm guys could take a new go at HTWWW

    Blu-ray Review A Few Words About A few words about…™ The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm – in Blu-ray

    Yeah, after the overture and the first seconds of the actual film began projected on the curtain as it was opening was just magical. How the West Was Won was just majestic. I received the set, screening later today.

    Licorice Pizza (2021)

    Finally screened this film yesterday and LOVED every minute of it. The lead actors Alana Haim and Cooper Hoffman were wonderful. Hope it wins the statue on March 27th.

    Blu-ray Review A Few Words About A few words about…™ The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm – in Blu-ray

    I bought the wide screen laser disc of Grimm back in the early 90s and was I ever disappointed in the picture quality, unwatchable really. The print on TCM is equally as bad although I suspect they will switch to restored print at some point in the near future. This release gives me hope...

    Mr. Harris, can you tell me if the Blu-rays here sourced from the 4K are better than the earlier Blu-rays of these two titles? I don’t have 4K capability. Thank you.
