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

    I viewed the "4K IMAX" presentation of 2001 at 3 different local theatres over the weekend prior to Labor Day. The version presented did not exhibit any of the mastering errors present on the current bluray or previous DCP presentations. During the "Dawn of Man" sequences, the sky looked...

    Special features that could have been included: 1. "Ridley Scott: Eye of the Storm", BBC TV documentary, 13 October 1992, 55mins. A good documentary, if you can find a copy, about making the film and Ridley Scott's career in general up to that point. 2. US teaser trailer (shots of Columbus'...

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

    This is, in fact, the 6th and final teaming of Burt Lancaster and Kirk Douglas in a film. Apparently, they were not close friends off-screen at all - that was all just publicity. Burt Lancaster receives first billing before Douglas in all these films (except Entebbe, I think) as well. 1948 I...

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ One-Eyed Jacks -- in Blu-ray

    Stanley Kubrick was involved in pre-production up to the point just before the start of filming. It's interesting that Kubrick left his mark on the resulting film in a few ways, leaving many of us wondering what might have been. some of the casting: Slim Pickens - real world cowboy later...

    There's a review of this set on tvshowsondvd.com. Gord Lacey is also thanked by name in the booklet as well as some other fanboys from another website. I had no idea Gord was that young. I believe the "original airdate" listed in the booklet for Episode 14 - "Baby Grobags" of 10 September...

    > I already purchased the 2 individual season releases, do they Mill Crrek have any intention on releasing seasons 3-7 individually? The answer from the ustownhall podcast was no individual season releases - just the complete series.

    Hawaii Five: O: The Sixth Season and beyond

    I think the reason there are no "be here, aloha" episode promos on Season 1, is that either they were not started until Season 2 or the films/negatives for the promos have been lost. The omission from subsequent Season Premieres and 2-hour episodes might be for the same reason - they were not...

    Good news and bad news about Hunter: The Complete Series...

    I bought this set about a month ago when Best Buy had the exclusive release window from 6/22/2010 or so. I am quite pleased with this set. This "all at once" release beats waiting 2 or 3 years for the DVDs to trickle out. I'm almost done with Season 3 of the set. The episodes in this DVD set...

    What's censored about these 2 episodes on A&E Set 4 ? [February 6th 1980 and January 7th 1981]

    Police Squad on 7th November !

    I've noticed the old VHS releases from the 80's look slightly "zoomed in" compared to these full-frame transfers.

    Why are studios biased in favor of African American shows from the 70s?

    As a recent trend, the main reason might be the big sales of Dave Chappelle's TV series DVDs from Viacom/Paramount. Other studios then try to capitalize on that as a sign of what consumers want [not this one, though]. ---
