    R.I.P Pat Carroll

    I think you're confusing her with Nancy Kulp, at least as far as the political differences between the two when Kulp ran for office.

    Blu-ray Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ - Back to the Beach -- in Blu-ray

    All of the 1960’s Beach films were made by American International Pictures. ( I know you’re funnin’ with us in your review, but crediting Paramount appears to be an honest error )

    Press Release SPHE Press Release: 1776 (1972) (4k UHD)

    Given the poise, class and sophistication Julie Andrews has demonstrated over the years it's inconceivable to me she wouldn't have triumphed in the film as Eliza. If anything, as a relative unknown at the time her transformation would have been much more of a surprise than seeing Audrey Hepburn...

    UHD Review Giant UHD Review

    Much as I appreciate GIANT, Dean almost ruins the film for me because of his hammy, method-acting performance which is totally out of place amongst the traditional "Hollywood" performances of stars Taylor & Hudson ( who I thought were absolutely terrific in their roles ). It's not hard to...

    Lightyear (2022)

    This has virtually nothing to do with the Toy Story films storylines per se; this is presented as the movie that young Andy saw that turned him into a Buzz Lightyear fan and inspired him to buy the toy. ( The movie stars the "real" Buzz Lightyear, which helps explain why we get Chris Evans'...

    Jurassic World: Dominion (June 10, 2022)

    Is there such thing as an IMAX presentation with Dolby Atmos ? The two companies have their own proprietary sound systems.

    Press Release BVHE Press Release: Heat (1995) (4k UHD Combo)

    My digital file from the last blu-ray release upgraded to 4K about two years ago.... so I will pass on this.

    Retrosonic - 16mm prints of hundreds of silent films were made available for home rental in the late 20's / early 30's, sometimes complete and sometimes in cut down and retitled versions. A huge number of silent films now only exist in these 16mm Show-At-Home versions , including the Lon Chaney...

    ‘Avatar 2’ Renews Push for 3D Format in Movie Theaters

    During the first two years of the pandemic, when everyone was worried about covid transmission from simply touching things, theatres that were open pretty much totally eliminated 3D rather than risk another touch point by distributing and collecting 3D glasses. (Anybody still wiping down their...

    UHD Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ - The Alfred Hitchcock Classics Collection - Volume Two -- in 4k UHD

    Harry knocked my socks off in 4K HDR on my 83" OLED - it's the highlight of the set IMO.

    UHD Review Singin’ in the Rain UHD Review

    I thought of that... I'm not particularly fond of westerns but can still recognize films like Stagecoach, The Searchers or High Noon as great, virtually perfect films....:)

    UHD Review Singin’ in the Rain UHD Review

    If Singin' In The Rain only qualifies as a 4.5/5 for production (which is based on the quality of the film itself rather than the presentation ) what does qualify as a 5/5 in your mind ?:confused:

    UHD Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ - The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance -- in 4k UHD

    Depressing to hear this... I was going to purchase but won't bother now. This also suggests we should worry about the 4K Untouchables coming up...
