    Blu-ray Review Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines Blu-ray Review

    It is def there. At least 2 other disk owners have spotted it. It is at the party, just as the character walks past/behind the wooden column.

    Blu-ray Review Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines Blu-ray Review

    I finally watched this. It seems a bit dark to me. I particularly noticed that the whites were quite murky. Did anybody else observe the bad video glitch at 1.26.27 on their disk? The image breaks up for a second.

    Blu-ray Review Nicholas and Alexandra Blu-ray Review

    I watched this on my 100 inch screen and was underwhealmed by the video presentation. It put me in mind of the presentation of El Cid that got widely bashed. It is better than El Cid, but stlll lacked visual depth and vibrancy - probably on a related note I noticed a distinct lack of film...

    There are no releases of these at all. I have copies of these which are just downloaded TV rips (and are also sold on ioffer etc). It seems the only available versions of "Castaways" are missing about 20-25 minutes of footage (runtime just 70 minutes). Clearly cut in length by the TV...

    "Hawkins" The Complete TV Movie Collection (1973) starring James Stewart

    It is a wonderful show - I had it on DVD-r copied from VHS. Strother Martin appears in 5 episodes (out of the total 8) and him and Jimmy Stewart make a great team. Stewart won the Golden Globe for his performance.

    Should just add that the Aus DVD release by Flashback Entertainment is awful PQ and AQ.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Night of the Living Dead (1990) -- in Blu-ray

    Yeah but nobody with any credibility has said the BD is how Savini originally wanted it.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Night of the Living Dead (1990) -- in Blu-ray

    What is odd about it? He clearly felt that the DVD looked fine with no errors.
