    Jumanji: The Next Level 3-D Blu-ray! Releases 28/7!

    Animation can be native every single time - it's inherently 3d (if we're not talking hand-drawn)!! And mostly all that needs to be done is to render out a second virtual camera. The depth is already there because 3d/cg imagery is already dimensional. And if we're talking actual animated movies...

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

    Blown out doesn't mean too much contrast for your liking. As far as I understand it, blown out means actual loss of picture information. If you could find say a frame from the dvd with highlights/whites that still have some grain/picture information, then show how in the blu the actual...

    LG to unveil first QNED Mini LED TVs at virtual CES

    Respectfully I disagree, and think the opposite is true. Are you a glass half empty person? Lack of change is comforting, but it seems to me (this is just my subjective take and friendly debate) the criticism contradicts your wallet. And consumer electronics reality! Because in fact the tech is...

    The Most Beautiful Songs/Themes In the World - They Make You Shiver Every Time You Hear Them

    I'm a bit confused about this thread because I took shivers or chills to mean beautiful but inextricably haunting or sad (which is what gives you those shivers), which may just be my interpretation. Not just beautiful which of course can be a happy thing. Anyway for what it's worth I agree on...

    International A PLACE IN THE SUN coming to Blu-ray from Imprint Films!

    Well, sort of! ;) It all depends. This is just my 2c/opinion. If you think a crappy spooled-onto-one-reel-run-loose-in-the-gate-ensuring-worse-focus-multiplex-meaning-stadium-seating-meaning-worse-focus-again-due-to-angle-not-to-mention-wear-and-tear is what we should aim for as the 'look' of a...

    International A PLACE IN THE SUN coming to Blu-ray from Imprint Films!

    I sure don't 'wander', not for a minute. And I don't quite follow the logic that if something looks great, why bother with something potentially better? And both B&W and increased rez can absolutely benefit in the same way they did from the jump from VHS to LD, and then to DVD, then to Blu...

    Thanks for the great post! And remember before cinemascope 'settled down', for a few pics it was even wider!

    Why Panavision Aspect Ratios for TV Shows?

    And the irony of course is that the 16x9 or 1.78 to 1 aspect ratio was arrived at precisely to please everyone by being a middle ground between everything from legacy 4:3 tv and old academy flat ratio, to scope!

    Why Panavision Aspect Ratios for TV Shows?

    Panavision 70 what aspect ratio are you actually talking about? Scope? Because it's not really the case. Although I have found that regarding streaming, there's actually a new increasingly common AR I've been working in when boarding and doing concept work for streamers, and it's more 2:1. I...

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Pinocchio -- in Blu-ray

    Hi all. I'm glad to see that in shots where there is effects animation the've left light grain in other elements too, in shots like the fairy and Jiminy.
