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

    Agreed. I don't know if it's a 15% light reduction, but if you compare to active shutter 3D glasses, this reduction in light output manifests as a change in tone more than anything. I would love nothing more than to be able to get a mid-priced OLED passive 3D display to replace my Panny plasma...

    I wish I knew, but I can't imagine a rapid switching LCD film costing more than $100.

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

    It doesn't but it depends on the 3D tech being used in a given TV. The OLEDs were passive 3D displays, which meant they have the equivalent of a Real D Z-Screen overlay on top of the OLED, which adds to the cost of the panel. Yes and no. Active 3D displays just had a chip, or two, because there...

    A Few Words About A few words about…™ Emma – in Blu-ray

    I would never say it's terrible, as there are some great actors and performances on display there [Jeremy Northam, Alan Cumming, Ewan McGregor, Greta Scacchi, Juliet Stevenson], but even with that particular scene, Anya Taylor-Joy's performance is superior. It also has that Miramax 90s feel...

    3D HTF TOP 30 MUST OWN 3D TITLES

    Of course, I'm speaking from the POV of a "colonial commoner" [English parents; Canadian by birth], and slipcovers on items I've received from Amazon have been quite rare.

    A Few Words About A few words about…™ Emma – in Blu-ray

    I watched this with my wife on the weekend. An absolutely gorgeous film, and true to the spirit of the novel. I daresay the 1995 Gwyneth Paltrow starring version will not fare so well on a rewatch.

    Blu-ray Review Murder by Decree Blu-ray Review

    DOP Reginald H. Morris worked as a cameraman for the venerable Geoffrey Unsworth, and this film has the haze and soft focus that Unsworth is known for, which works well with the period.

    Slipcovers themselves from the UK are rare.

    Colour by DeLuxe indeed.

    It was hard to tell from the photograph whether it was steelbook, slipcase, etc. Nice find, though.

    Is that a Steelbook?

    CAN-CAN 1960 will probably never be released on Blu-ray

    I'm not sure that this is entirely true. While Mutiny may contain a 2.76:1 image, Ultra Panavision/MGM Camera 65 productions were largely cropped to 2.5:1 in 35mm prints, especially in the case of Ben-Hur, as UP was designed as a fairly flexible format that could be photographed with some dead...
