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

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

    RAH, Based on the screen shots (and yes, I know that it can be foolish to draw conclusions from screen shots, but it's all I have) on DVDBeaver, it appears that the transfer was done from a composite element rather than a WB-style ultra-rez treatment of the OCN. Am I correct? -R

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Don Juan DeMarco -- in Blu-ray

    Ernest Rister would be rolling over in his grave if he read this. If he was actually in a grave, which he is not. But he does post over at some blu ray forum type place. Can't remember the name. -R

    Pinocchio Blu Ray replacement disc for missing lines of dialogue?

    Ordered my copy from Amazon last week. Arrived on Saturday. Was relieved to see that it is the corrected version. So that's all well and good. On the downside, it just hit me that I spent $30 to fix two lines of dialogue. -R
