    Scream Factory Press Release: King Kong Collector's Edition (1976) (Blu-ray)

    Thanks for the info. Again my only concern is that we are given the extended version in the correct aspect ratio the same way Warner Archive did for Superman.

    Scream Factory Press Release: King Kong Collector's Edition (1976) (Blu-ray)

    I am looking forward to this, but please let the extended version be 2.39 ratio and not 1.33 as it was broadcast.

    Around The World In 80 Days (1956)

    If it can happen I would love to see a full analog restoration of the original Todd-Ao elements in 70 MM 30fps. The film being a travelogue is made for such images.

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

    I really enjoyed this Bond film but with UHD on the Horizon and the fact that it was shot anamorphically on film and finished in true 4K, I will wait to pick it up on UHD HDR instead.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ The Ten Commandments -- in Blu-ray

    Thanks Robert. I hope this practice would be applied to every 35 MM horizontal production by all studios. BTW, this being a large format film, would it not have been more beneficial to scan it at 8K instead of 6K ??

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ The Ten Commandments -- in Blu-ray

    I have a question for Robert Harris Was the Ten Commandment BD restoration the same with what was done with the new Spartacus BD ?? Meaning, did they actually restore and scan the original 8 perf Camera Negative ??

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

    I saw many films at the Century Plaza in Los Angeles with the HPS-4000 system. Unfortunately that theatre closed down and was demolished in 03. When the sound was not tampered with, it was the finest sounding theatre. And being in LA, that is saying something.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ A View to Kill -- in Blu-ray

    From what I understand only the pre-title sequence is cropped. The rest of the film is fine. Still unacceptable.

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

    Who would have thought a movie like Summer Lovers would spark such an interesting discussion about AR and film format. :)

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

    I am well aware that very very few theatres can project the Hateful Eight properly. Cineramadome in Hollywood is one of those rare few which has a 85 foot screen with the necessary anamorphic lens to de-squeeze the 70 MM picture. I honestly think Tanrantino is sending a big F**k You to the...

    Not quite. Star Trek IV had a couple of 70 MM prints encoded with Dolby SR.
