    What was your very first movie on physical media purchase?

    My mother purchased a Betamax as a present for the whole family for Christmas of 1981. Included with that she purchased cassettes of "Now Voyager" and "Barefoot In The Park", so those would be my first full movies on physical media. I say "full" because, as a kid, I would sometimes purchase...

    Warner Archive Press Release: Mister Roberts (1955) (Blu-ray)

    My copy of the DVD has been missing for several years. I was about to give in and buy another copy, so this upgrade is VERY welcome news.

    New OSCARS Category: "Popular Film"

    Chris I could not agree more. I've enjoyed many a popcorn movie over the past decade, but not one of them has "stayed with me" like Jaws, for just one example. If big, popular films are going to get a nomination, then it should be because they are excellent films overall. It should not be...

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ 2001: A Space Odyssey -- in BD & HD

    That standard screen looks impressive on it's own. And then the Cinerama screen comes out for a visit........:dancing-banana-04:

    Call Me By Your Name

    "Call Me..." was my favorite film of last year. But as much as I loved it, I really don't see it needing a sequel. According to this recent interview with James Ivory, author Andre Aciman doesn't think it's going to happen...

    Yes, once. But they were showing an Imax film (not Omnimax) on it. I was not impressed. Unfortunately I never had the chance to experience an actual Omnimax film on that screen. Yes, same effect as the Death Star attack on the D-150 screen.

    I saw many a film in my local D-150 house, both 35mm (flat as well as scope) and 70mm. Everything always looked fantastic, but 70mm was most impressive. And scenes like the attack on the Death Star at the end of Return Of The Jedi actually felt like Cinerama. That curved screen gave me a sense...

    Village of the Damned (1960)- coming from WAC

    This will be a day one purchase for me, I love this film. But like you, I wish they would have included the sequel. I guess I'll be hanging onto the DVD.

    Will, I wish there was a button more than "like" that I could press concerning your statement. Love? Adore? Something like that. In any case thanks for your "liked" thoughts. :dancing-banana-04:

    Gay-Friendly Blu-rays

    Not to my knowledge. The picture and sound quality on the current blu-ray seem excellent to me, at least on my set up (50" panny plasma, Rotel amplifier with an Onkyo receiver as a pre-amp, and Definitive Technology speakers and subwoofer). Anyone know if there's going to be an official HTF...

    Gay-Friendly Blu-rays

    It's still playing at the Paris in NYC. It felt strange but good to know that as I was seeing it at home on bluray there were people seeing it "with me" at the exact same time, in New York's last single screen movie house.
