    International The Elephant Man (4k UHD) coming from Studio Canal

    I also have the old Studio Canal blu-ray and its Region A compatible. It’s a good looking disc with a very nice 5.1 mix by John Neff. I hope that surround mix and orig theatrical mix are both incl in the new release.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Dracula (1979) - in Blu-ray

    I could have sworn I read somewhere, or maybe I heard it from an interview with Badham, that the cross falling into the pool of water blessed it, allowing for the reflection revealing the vampire. Creative!

    The Shining (1980) 4K

    I interviewed Gordon Stainforth right before the 5.1 mix first appeared on DVD, and I recall he said the assembly of the music cues included needledrops. While i guess it is possible to go back to original tape masters, there was so much work that Stainforth did with the music cues (including...

    UHD Review A few words about...™ Hannibal -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    I did a quick spot check and it’s a dramatic improvement over the blu-ray. Edit: caps-a-holic posted their comparison. Wow, bigger than I thought.

    Tom Cruise speaks out about the Soap Opera Effect

    I also saw this demo years ago and was the first time I was exposed to this feature. I hated it. Looked like behind-the-scenes video footage. I looked closer and was very confused until I realized what was going on.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Ingmar Bergman's Cinema -- in Blu-ray

    I was very fortunate to get this thru Amazon, before stock ran out. It is an exquisite set, with so much effort and thought into the presentation, sequence, etc that it is mind-boggling. Taking my time going thru the films (in the order presented), and then after each film reading the respective...

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Tucker: The Man and His Dream -- in Blu-ray

    I love this film also! I have been waiting for the upgrade from DVD for YEARS. As it turns out, I’m typing this a few miles from the Inglenook estate, where Mr. Coppola kept one of his Tuckers on display even after the lions share of the film memorabilia went up north to his relocated Coppola...

    Jonny Quest coming to Blu from WAC

    Yep! The DVD set was quite nice but there were a few episodes that were horribly interlaced. Hope the blu-ray set addresses this.

    UHD Review A few words about...™ Forrest Gump -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    Wow, I just saw this and I thought it was a HUGE upgrade over the blu-ray. Viewed on Sony 350 4K (non-hdr) projector, 92 inch screen, Oppo 203.

    Valley Girl (1983) (Blu-ray) coming from Shout Factory

    Great to see this finally announced on blu-ray. I’m not seeing Deborah Foreman on any of the special features listed...?

    Thoughts on Nolan Collection 4K UHD films?

    I found the shadow detail on the films in their 4K UHD versions in this set to have an occasional odd glow, compared to other 4K discs I have (Dracula, Blade Runner, Sicario et al). Other than that, they look wonderful!

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Special Effects Collection -- in Blu-ray

    I read somewhere that this set may be going (or is already) OOP - in any case, it was a good enough excuse for me to finally order and enjoy. Looking forward to it

    3D Blu-ray Review The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet: THE HTF 3D ADDICT REVIEW

    I just saw it. I don't have a region free player, so I imported the region A/free? Netherlands blu-ray from Proxis, and set me back about $28 shipped for the 3 disc set. Could not believe it. What a wonderfully odd, awkward, beautiful film. Must be seen in 3D. Every shot is a diorama. A much...

    3D Lowest price for top spot T. S. Spivet 3D movie?

    Just received the Netherlands set from Proxis. 3D and 2D blu-ray discs play perfectly, although they default to French audio. Toggling over to English was not a big deal. The DVD is different region code than U.S. but also, not a big deal for me. The extras are approx. 50% in French with no...

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Fright Night (redux) -- in Blu-ray

    In this new release, I am seeing slightly less contrast and - possibly as a result - color saturation, compared to the previous TT pressing. Very, very minor difference, but I was expecting the same image. Almost like a slight gamma adjustment that has also brought up the shadow detail a...

    Tell me about Costco and their Blu-ray selection and prices

    Nice! Best Blu-ray purchase of my life might be the same set - SEALED at a consignment shop, for $12. I think they thought it was a laserdisc. However, I had already bought it at Costco, for the aforementioned price, so I gave it to my dad. He loved it (it's one of his favorite films)

    Anyone else have big movie collections?

    I'm 908 as of today. Just over 600 are blu-ray. I still have a handful of HD-DVDs, and the rest are DVDs. Not counting the 50 or so laserdiscs in the closet.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Once Upon a Time in America - Extended Director's Cut -- in Blu-ray

    Thanks for the comments, Bruce. I'm with you on the color of the old blu-ray. I think that all around the old blu-ray looks very good up until about the middle of the film, . At that point, thru the end credits, the image appears a bit more filtered, and if I recall correctly, the bitrate...

    Criterion Press Release: Eraserhead (Blu-ray)

    I checked it against the official DVD, where it begins to fade to white then it cuts to pure white. The fade up to white still happens on the Criterion blu-ray (done in camera?) but the frames of pure white are now what appears to be black slug with sound underneath, then we're back. It...

    Criterion Press Release: Eraserhead (Blu-ray)

    I think there might be a problem on the otherwise amazing blu-ray. It cuts to black @65 min with Henry and the Lady In The Radiator instead of the blast of white. A missing optical?
