    SAE Twilight Time Sale - every Blu-ray $4.95-14.95

    I’m willing to bet if you don’t spend the extra 11 bucks that you’ll soon be staring and staring...and s-t-a-r-I-n-g...at those shelves of near perfect uniformity. In time you will become fixated. And yes, even insanity will creep in. People will come over your house and, instead of...

    UHD Review A few words about…™ Lawrence of Arabia - in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    Here is my take on the “Lawrence of Arabia” Blu Ray of 2012; and the 4K/DCP, to which I was so grateful to attend in 2019; and the 4K/UHD of 2020. All are; respectively; perfect, other-worldly and humbling. I do not understand the nit-picking over an alleged this or an alleged that. We are so...

    UHD Review A few words about…™ Lawrence of Arabia - in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    Colin, it is just you and I’ll argue that fact with just about anyone here...except the Moderators. :D P.S. I hope to one day visit the locations used in “Lawrence”. My sole purpose for the visit will be to see, with my own eyes, why the desert doesn’t match up with my back-pack full of...

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

    In just discovering this thread, I noted that RAH’s review was written back in February of 2013. Well, gee, that’s a good two years before I had joined HTF. In my scrolling further down to read the posts, I was taken by the fact that; short of one guest; I had come to know or recognize each...

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Laurel & Hardy: The Definitive Restorations - in Blu-ray

    Well now, you see, I’m exactly in the opposite camp. I was planning on a purchase from early on, but have since then been put so egregiously off. And, I assure you, my change of heart was not due to the consistent standards of one reviewers eye or words; but, rather, for a rogue publicist who...

    I know what you’re saying, but with grain Stan and Ollie stand to be even funnier. :thumbs-up-smiley:

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Laurel & Hardy: The Definitive Restorations - in Blu-ray

    The final mastering process. What goes on there? Are the technicians not aware of the prior work conducted by those who have labored over an exhaustive restoration? Are they not in conference with each other? Are they not aware of the foundational goals? But, mainly, I wonder why all...

    UHD Review A few words about…™ Lawrence of Arabia - in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    I still remember being thrilled when the VHS format began to introduce the proper aspect ratios. In its time, such corrections were a giant leap forward. And antiquated as each format or incarnation of such large formats films as “Lawrence of Arabia” may now seem, I remain grateful and...

    UHD Review A few words about…™ Lawrence of Arabia - in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    Never mind if “LoA” looks like Fillum, or if it’s colors are now more accurate than before, or if it can equate a 70mm print versus a 35mm print. IMHO, the most important thing here is that we are no longer losing any more time in having to rewind the darned thing. :thumbs-up-smiley:
