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

    I could be wrong I believe that's the only difference. My understanding back then was that all the early BDs of Psycho contained the original mono, the only thing special about the 2010 UK disc (audio-wise) was that the original mono track was lossless. (That UK disc also had an AH Presents...

    Pre-Order S.O.S. Titanic (1979) (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    I'm excited to see both cuts of SOS Titanic at last. I grew up watching an old VHS of it, which I believe was a third cut. It definitely had the framing device, but when I looked it up on Google Image, I saw the packaging shows it was 98 mins, shorter than even the European theatrical cut...

    Apparantly Titanic's the worst film ever...

    I agree completely. Titanic was the highest grossing film of all time in 1997, and remains the third highest grossing film ever, precisely BECAUSE of its fictional love story, woven through the true story. The fictional love story is intentionally an elemental story, like a folk tale. Cameron...

    Has Blu-ray.com forum been hacked?

    I'm glad I posted here then. :) I was THIS close to starting a new profile there, and losing all my saved info. I would have really regretted losing my catalog of Blu-Rays and which ones I have viewed, I find that SUPER useful. By the way, I have to thank you, because you gave me a laugh I...

    Has Blu-ray.com forum been hacked?

    Phew! That was scary.

    Has Blu-ray.com forum been hacked?

    Yep, they seem to have totally taken it down while they're presumably fixing it. For a while though it was up, but the forums were inaccessible, and we all thought we'd been banned.

    Has Blu-ray.com forum been hacked?

    I'm so grateful this community still exists too, so we can have this discussion. I joined here in 2003, but for the last few years I've posted more at the other forum, which I think I joined around 2009, though I read postings on both.

    Has Blu-ray.com forum been hacked?

    I'm not nearly tech savvy enough to try any of that, haha. I'm lucky if I can remember my password, haha. But that definitely makes it sound like the website is just having problems. I hope they're fixable, I know less than nothing about computers.

    Has Blu-ray.com forum been hacked?

    Ah, the site is entirely down again now. Hope they're fixing it.

    Has Blu-ray.com forum been hacked?

    That's what I was afraid of, I have heard of people being summarily banned there before. But I couldn't think of what on earth could have gotten me banned. I have politely argued with people about technical defects and such, but I have never said anything personal or nasty or filthy or...

    Has Blu-ray.com forum been hacked?

    The website itself isn't down anymore though, it's up, and I can see everything but the forums, which I'm denied access to. I can even see links to the forum pages when I click on each Blu-ray's product page. I just can't access the forums. Very strange.

    Has Blu-ray.com forum been hacked?

    I'm relieved it's all of us, that means they should be able to fix it. I know the forum usually goes down for about half an hour at 3am Pacific each night, but this was scary. I didn't realize how much the forum there meant to me until I saw I was "banned" from it. It was legitimately scary...

    Has Blu-ray.com forum been hacked?

    I apologize if I'm posting this in the wrong place, but I didn't see a section on the forums here that fit more properly than Blu-Ray. I haven't posted here in ages, I usually post at blu-ray.com The site there went down for about an hour just now, and when it came back about ten minutes ago...

    Wonderstruck on Blu-ray?

    I have the Amazon US BD. It has all six of those featurettes, and a seventh, "The Music of Wonderstruck." I haven't watched it yet, but it does not list the interviews as being on the disc. It's not barebones though.

    Need 1941 Director´s Cut on Blu-ray!

    Looks like a Spielberg boxset is coming this fall. First word of it has apparently leaked from Australia, where Universal does not control Munich. Strangely, however, it does not include Schindler's List, which Universal does control there. Duel Sugarland Express Jaws 1941 (both cuts) ET Always...
