    International The Elephant Man (4k UHD) coming from Studio Canal

    I also have the old Studio Canal blu-ray and its Region A compatible. It’s a good looking disc with a very nice 5.1 mix by John Neff. I hope that surround mix and orig theatrical mix are both incl in the new release.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Dracula (1979) - in Blu-ray

    I could have sworn I read somewhere, or maybe I heard it from an interview with Badham, that the cross falling into the pool of water blessed it, allowing for the reflection revealing the vampire. Creative!

    The Shining (1980) 4K

    I interviewed Gordon Stainforth right before the 5.1 mix first appeared on DVD, and I recall he said the assembly of the music cues included needledrops. While i guess it is possible to go back to original tape masters, there was so much work that Stainforth did with the music cues (including...

    UHD Review A few words about...™ Hannibal -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    I did a quick spot check and it’s a dramatic improvement over the blu-ray. Edit: caps-a-holic posted their comparison. Wow, bigger than I thought.

    Tom Cruise speaks out about the Soap Opera Effect

    I also saw this demo years ago and was the first time I was exposed to this feature. I hated it. Looked like behind-the-scenes video footage. I looked closer and was very confused until I realized what was going on.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Ingmar Bergman's Cinema -- in Blu-ray

    I was very fortunate to get this thru Amazon, before stock ran out. It is an exquisite set, with so much effort and thought into the presentation, sequence, etc that it is mind-boggling. Taking my time going thru the films (in the order presented), and then after each film reading the respective...

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Tucker: The Man and His Dream -- in Blu-ray

    I love this film also! I have been waiting for the upgrade from DVD for YEARS. As it turns out, I’m typing this a few miles from the Inglenook estate, where Mr. Coppola kept one of his Tuckers on display even after the lions share of the film memorabilia went up north to his relocated Coppola...

    Jonny Quest coming to Blu from WAC

    Yep! The DVD set was quite nice but there were a few episodes that were horribly interlaced. Hope the blu-ray set addresses this.

    UHD Review A few words about...™ Forrest Gump -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    Wow, I just saw this and I thought it was a HUGE upgrade over the blu-ray. Viewed on Sony 350 4K (non-hdr) projector, 92 inch screen, Oppo 203.

    Valley Girl (1983) (Blu-ray) coming from Shout Factory

    Great to see this finally announced on blu-ray. I’m not seeing Deborah Foreman on any of the special features listed...?

    Thoughts on Nolan Collection 4K UHD films?

    I found the shadow detail on the films in their 4K UHD versions in this set to have an occasional odd glow, compared to other 4K discs I have (Dracula, Blade Runner, Sicario et al). Other than that, they look wonderful!
