    The Lady from Shanghai (1948) (Blu-ray) Available from Preorder

    Don't get me wrong. TCM's image looked excellent. Clearly a transfer of the recent restoration.

    The Lady from Shanghai (1948) (Blu-ray) Available from Preorder

    I have the 2nd remastered TCM disc. I recorded the movie on TCM HD last night, and there is shadow detail in the TCM that cannot be seen on the blu-ray no matter how high I pump up the brightness. Check out the first few shots after the credits. In the long shot of the park (after the shot of...

    Stanley Kubrick: The Masterpiece Collection (Amazon Exclusive Blu-ray) Preorder

    Stanley Kubrick: A Life in Pictures has been included in two prior blu-ray releases, but only in SD. I'd be interested in the set if this doc was finally presented in HD.

    The Harmony Ultimate would replace (drum roll, please)... ONE remote for me: My Harmony 880. My 880 controls about 11 devices in my room, including my Pioneer monitor, av switch, four different DVRs (including my Tivo), and my Arcam Blu-ray player. Enough of the buttons on the 880 have stopped...

    Criterion Blu-ray titles!

    Agreed. This clue is for two movies. On the left, we have "The Horn Blows at Midnight." The knight is blowing a ram's horn (Jewish shofar) in the middle of his visor. The crumbling wall? I dunno.

    Win a copy of McLintock!

    I'll cast my vote for "The Searchers." I had watched in once before on HDDVD, but I decided to revisit it when this thread started. I haven't seen many Wayne films, but I started buying Wayne films after first seeing this one. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed John Wayne. I grew up in the...

    Twilight Time titles 20% off at TCM
