    Issue with Sony UBP-X700 4K Bluray Player

    Every other piece of equipment I have from Iphone to Sonos speaker recognises the network as secured and asks for the password. I've never encountered this issue before, its perplexing.

    Issue with Sony UBP-X700 4K Bluray Player

    I've tried to connect my new Sony UBP-X700 to my WIFI network. When I scan for available networks, my home network shows up. BUT for some reason the machine is insisting this network is not security protected (see photo). Because of this the player doesn't ask me to enter a password to connect...

    The Girl in the Spider's Web (2018)

    It hasn't opened in my part of the world yet, so I can't comment. But the novel is definitely a far slicker and less engaging affair than the original Stig Larsson trilogy. Despite all his books needing tighter editing and a fresh English translation, I couldn't put them down. Lizabeth is such...

    DVD Review Filmworker: Stanley Kubrick's Unsung Assistant DVD Review

    Director Tony Zierra spent years tracking down and interviewing people who worked on EYES WIDE SHUT for a documentary about Kubrick's final film to be entitled SK13. At the very end of the process he encountered Leon Vitali. So mesmerized by this man's amazing story devoting his life to Kubrick...

    California Split (1974)

    I never really understood gambling until I caught this film one night on TV after work. I changed channels and came across the hilarious car park mugging scene and stuck with it till the end, becoming one of my all time favorite pictures. We'll get a Bluray...eventually. And I hope it will...

    Blu-ray Review Phantom Thread Blu-ray Review - Recommended

    I agree with everything in this review, except your take on THE MASTER, which I think still stands as Anderson's greatest picture to date. Having projected both films multiple times in 70mm helped colour my opinion. I haven't seen either on Bluray yet. I wonder if one plays better than the...

    Monty Python -> Netflix

    In the new clip show MONTY PYTHON's BEST BITS I noticed they use the censored version of the 'Prince' animated segment, with the bizarrley inserted audio changing the word 'Cancer' to 'Gangrene'. I haven't had a chance to find the piece in the FLYING CIRCUS episode to see if it's still censored...

    Physical Media might not be dead, but Physical Media in Retail Stores are accelerating the death

    I'm from Dublin, Ireland. And, ironically, pretty much the only shops left in the city with a physical selection of DVDs and Blurays, besides the cool shop at the Irish Film Institute, is Tower Records. There are actually two of them, one bang smack in the centre and another just across the...

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Aspect Ratios

    The ITV channels are particularly guilty of this. Especially with the Bond movies. It's infuriating.

    Are there any cases where streaming is better than physical release?

    Doesn't have to be if you create your own version. Though of course this isn't possible with every bluray.

    Are there any cases where streaming is better than physical release?

    In my experience finding a streaming version that even equals the disc version is very rare. Most streaming versions don't include multiple audio tracks, to access the commentary, for example. Or even full uncompressed sound. I'm still making my own 'streaming editions' because of this.

    Are there scenes featured in the extended TV cut of SUPERMAN II that do not appear in the Bluray collection versions of the theatrical and Donner edit?

    Stephen King's It (September 8, 2017)

    A massively underwhelming movie going experience. There wasn't one memorable or fresh moment of horror through out. Structured by the numbers, and all the adults seem like caricatures. In a word: disappointing.
