    UHD Review A few words about…™ The Alfred Hitchcock Classics Collection - in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    One complaint. Getting a disk out of the package without damaging it is really a pain.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Jezebel - in Blu-ray

    Just watched. Truly astounding. The audio alone! would justify the cost of the disk.

    A PEEK AT MIDNIGHT COWBOY

    Great film, I've seen it in the theater many times. The Criterion blu-ray is too teal, something I didn't know about until I watched it tonight.

    A PEEK AT DOCTOR DOLITTLE

    MatthewA says: "The posters show Doctor Dolittle riding a giraffe, but the finished film doesn't. Perhaps some kids 50 years ago felt gypped for that reason?" I guess you haven't watched the film, since there is a shot of Dolittle riding a giraffe. There are actually two in a row.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Brigadoon -- in Blu-ray

    I kinda wish they would put the flat version on disk, too. Just for comparison sake, also, because I want it. But yeah, I'll be buying this.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ My Fair Lady (Take Two) -- in Blu-ray

    My 200 ms audio delay really helps make the dialogue and singing very crisp. I thought it might throw some of the dialogue out of sync, but it doesn't.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ My Fair Lady (Take Two) -- in Blu-ray

    Just chiming in. I received the new bluray package, and the movie does indeed look and sound glorious, as expected. I do have one question about it for you Mr. Harris. I recall you mentioning somewhere that during your restoration 20 years ago, you found the audio soundtrack (on the original...

    Blu-ray Review The Best of Everything Blu-ray Review

    It's the cyan channel. It's just too heavy. White shirts are white, but have blue shadows. Fox famously pushed blue, but this is too much. It isn't how the films were meant to look, not by a long shot.

    Someone at Fox - please evaluate

    I don't believe that. I don't believe that The King and I looked that way, overly teal or cyan, ever. I wasn't alive in 1956 when The King and I premiered, so I'm just going on instinct here. It's ugly, and wrong. The older transfer is superior, for color.

    Someone at Fox - please evaluate

    I'll chime in here. Chuck's extraordinary work on these recent film transfers is best analyzed by looking at all of them. Why are they all overly blue? I don't believe for one second that these all looked this way, originally. Something has happened, very recently, in the process of color-timing...

    Into The Woods (Stephen Sondheim) (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    The DVD looks fine, like videotape circa 1991. The bluray looks very processed, saturated, overly contrasty, and blurry. It's a great show, get the DVD.

    A Few Words About While we wait for A few words about...™ The Rodgers & Hammerstein Collection -- in Blu-ray

    Trying to get this shot from my 720p version. This is the exterior scene. The dress is gray, not turquoise.
