    Mr. Holland's Opus on Blu?

    It's a "Via Vision" disc. On the disc it says "Licensed from MGM Studios Inc. and 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment LLC and made available in Australia / New Zealand by Park Circus Ltd. through Via Vision Entertainment." There's no mention of Disney per se anywhere on the disc or case, but...

    Mr. Holland's Opus on Blu?

    I took a gamble and ordered this. It's the Australian/New Zealand release. Even though it's labeled as Region B it plays just fine in my Region A player (Sony BDP-S6500). It's listed as 1.85:1, but it's actually 2.35:1. I've only watched a few minutes of it, but it's about on par...

    The Civil War: A Film By Ken Burns (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    My corrected set arrived from PBS today. A quick check of Episode 1 shows the problem has been corrected, at least to my eyes and modest system. The side bars are now black, and the picture no longer looks whitewashed. The beginning and end titles now have a black background. The package...

    Hello

    Another new member here (the paint is still wet on my user ID). My setup is rather modest at this point, but looking to upgrade some stuff when time and budget allows. Of course, the budget would be somewhat larger if I'd quit buying BDs. Good luck with that! :)
