    2.35:1 on Amazon page but I can swear it's just 16:9 (1.78:1) on my viewing. Am I dreaming?

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Bram Stoker's Dracula -- in BD

    I just watched the first 1/3 of this BD disc. All in all I think the quality is amazing. Very film-like. Has all the wonder and all the flaws of film. Film is never a perfect medium even though the one who shot it is the most talented cinematographer in the world. But I think to transfer it as...

    PQ differences: Codec or Mastering related? (was "AVC better than VC-1???")

    So "sharpness to the eyes" is the measurement of good PQ here? Sharpness can be decieving mainly because it can be contradictory to detail. Do you know that the sharper picture tend to provide less detail? I guess different CODEC can be compared in the manner of comparing film stocks. For...

    Is UK R2 Tartan DVD's Sex and Lucia uncut?

    Thank you. This is the information I'm looking for when I started this thread. I still think there's only one version of S&L until I borrowed R1 disc from my friend and it's R-rated version.

    Is UK R2 Tartan DVD's Sex and Lucia uncut?

    Thanks Ali B. I had Tartan R2 disc in my hand right now and can confirm that it's indeed *UNCUT*. The erect penis is/are there.

    Is UK R2 Tartan DVD's Sex and Lucia uncut?

    I have a chance to buy this cheap (second handed) but I'm not sure if the version uncut. If it's not, then maybe I'll buy R1 instead. I suppose there's only one version from Tartan in UK.

    Buena Vista Goes All BD-50 for January Blu-ray Slate

    So true. Francis Ford Coppola even told me in person when he edited Godfather that a scene had a few frame damaged but he used it anyway because the take was so good. I think all filmmaker care is emotional impact, not hi-fidelity. He even joked the audience would think damaged frames only...

    The Departed: Feb. 13

    Well, it'll be interesting to see what they come up with because the ending in the IA was of Buddhism teaching & belief. Guess it would never affect westerners the way it affected Buddhists. I'll check out the 2 disc sets.
