    A Few Words About A few words about…™ The Lord of the Rings Trilogy & The Hobbit Trilogy – in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    Wow what an insulting post by a know-nothing. So you've watch something on 10,500 inch screen so now you're an expert in film transferring and color timing etc and can watch a 10 minute YouTube video and prove that it's all a scam by bleary-eyed tea drinking incompetents. Got it. Must be nice to...

    There's no such thing as "Golden Ears", it is "Confirmation Bias". It's not the ears but what is between them.

    A Few Words About A few words about…™ The Lord of the Rings Trilogy & The Hobbit Trilogy – in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    IMO, LOTR reminds me of a couple other films that were not done justice until a 4k release. Lawrence of Arabia & 2001: A Space Odyssey. Certainly there are others. A couple that come to mind are Gone With the Wind, Ben-Hur & laugh if you want Oklahoma! I have the Todd-AO of Oklahoma and find it...

    A Few Words About A few words about…™ Mr. Smith Goes to Washington - in 4k UHD Blu-ray (updated)

    HDR a crapshoot? Huh? As Robert said, home projectors with 1 exception, are not bright enough to do HDR justice. OLEDs especially LG & Sony are. Where's the crapshoot?

    A Few Words About A few words about…™ Mr. Smith Goes to Washington - in 4k UHD Blu-ray (updated)

    Gawd, is it still the year 2000 in here? Those bastard studios are at it again, trying to make a profit & not giving you exactly what you so deserve. It's like Hudson in Aliens, some people aren't keeping up current events. Physical media is a money loser, repeat money loser. I'm not saying...

    Amazon.com no longer shipping orders overseas?

    Question or 2. Whatever you order from a non-native Amazon site is dependent on them, not Amazon.com. There are a ton of factors external to any Amazon site. I pre-ordered Police Squad BD from Amazon.com. The original ship & release date was 4/14. Got updated ship date a bit ago and it was 4/16...

    Why no A Few Words for Until the End of the World?

    Nothing whatsoever to do with differing opinions. Just curious as Wenders is a unique film maker, love him or loathe him. It's Robert's prerogative to reply or not. I always enjoy reading & re-reading his POV, regardless. I'm fine either way

    Why no A Few Words for Until the End of the World?

    Wondering why Robert hasn't posted regarding Wim Wenders' about Until the End of the World Criterion release? True shame that there wasn't a UHD release given the extensive work done. I'll be ordering it as I generally like Wenders' films. Love that he shoots in story order. Unique. No...

    A Few Words About While we wait for A few words about...™ Lawrence of Arabia -- in 4k/UHD Blu-ray

    So sometime in 2020 is the latest speculation for Lawrence? I understand that these things take time & we have no choice but to wait but JHC, WWII was won in a shorter timeframe.

    Happy 100th Birthhday Kirk Douglas!

    Stated simply, Kirk Douglas was one the greatest film making artists in the history of cinema. Acting, producing, giving a blacklisted screenwriter a plum opportunity. Giving an unknown director a job on a film where he starred. So many things. They don't make men like Kirk Douglas very often...

    On disc? Maybe I'm a dummy but I can't find it.

    UHD James Bond films in Ultra HD blu Ray?

    I hope I'm not repeating old news. This isn't about the iTunes versions but The Bit has posted that the 1st 4 Daniel Craig Bonds with be released in UHD to coincide with the new film in late Feb. I'll wait to see the specs about those.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956) -- in Blu-ray

    I guess I'm glad I held off on this til now. I really like this film. IMO, one of the seminal Sci-Fi films. War of the Worlds, Forbidden Planet but this one is different. No big deal effects but light & shadow. King Donovan is awesome. A truly unheralded so-called character actor that always...
