    Press Release Scream Factory Press Release: Friday The 13th Deluxe Edition (Blu-ray)

    That appears to be the case from any BTS footage I've seen. Either that, or VR goggles.

    Pre-Order Jaws 3-Movie Collection (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    I laughed myself silly through both 3 and 4. 3 is especially fun in 3D.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Laurel & Hardy: The Definitive Restorations - in Blu-ray

    Agreed. I don't know if it's a 15% light reduction, but if you compare to active shutter 3D glasses, this reduction in light output manifests as a change in tone more than anything. I would love nothing more than to be able to get a mid-priced OLED passive 3D display to replace my Panny plasma...

    I wish I knew, but I can't imagine a rapid switching LCD film costing more than $100.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Laurel & Hardy: The Definitive Restorations - in Blu-ray

    It doesn't but it depends on the 3D tech being used in a given TV. The OLEDs were passive 3D displays, which meant they have the equivalent of a Real D Z-Screen overlay on top of the OLED, which adds to the cost of the panel. Yes and no. Active 3D displays just had a chip, or two, because there...

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

    I would never say it's terrible, as there are some great actors and performances on display there [Jeremy Northam, Alan Cumming, Ewan McGregor, Greta Scacchi, Juliet Stevenson], but even with that particular scene, Anya Taylor-Joy's performance is superior. It also has that Miramax 90s feel...

    3D HTF TOP 30 MUST OWN 3D TITLES

    Of course, I'm speaking from the POV of a "colonial commoner" [English parents; Canadian by birth], and slipcovers on items I've received from Amazon have been quite rare.

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

    I watched this with my wife on the weekend. An absolutely gorgeous film, and true to the spirit of the novel. I daresay the 1995 Gwyneth Paltrow starring version will not fare so well on a rewatch.

    Blu-ray Review Murder by Decree Blu-ray Review

    DOP Reginald H. Morris worked as a cameraman for the venerable Geoffrey Unsworth, and this film has the haze and soft focus that Unsworth is known for, which works well with the period.

    It was hard to tell from the photograph whether it was steelbook, slipcase, etc. Nice find, though.

    CAN-CAN 1960 will probably never be released on Blu-ray

    I'm not sure that this is entirely true. While Mutiny may contain a 2.76:1 image, Ultra Panavision/MGM Camera 65 productions were largely cropped to 2.5:1 in 35mm prints, especially in the case of Ben-Hur, as UP was designed as a fairly flexible format that could be photographed with some dead...

    3D HTF TOP 30 MUST OWN 3D TITLES

    Jurassic Park is definitely one of Samuel L.'s more nuanced performances; about as close as he gets to signature Sam is his line, "Hold onto your butts."

    CAN-CAN 1960 will probably never be released on Blu-ray

    Wait; what? I know there was a 2-disc SE DVD issued in 2006, but I cannot find any record of an HD DVD release, and Warners' released their BD titles day and date with HD DVD.

    CAN-CAN 1960 will probably never be released on Blu-ray

    Lucas recently laid out a crapload of money to restore Mystery at the Wax Museum, a film at one time believed lost and also believed only to exist as a print in Jack Warner's personal collection. Not a cheap resto by any means, and it looks stunning. I don't think Can-Can is in his wheelhouse, TBH.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ My Fair Lady (Take Two) -- in Blu-ray

    Perfectly valid points, but the point I'm trying to make is that, depending on the age of the material, either HDR is not going to make a difference, or it's going to expose detail deliberately obscured as an artistic flourish or for special effects purposes. It's great that we have these tools...

    Abbott & Costello Jack and the Beanstalk SE (1952) (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    This is one of those movies that had a million "PD" VHS and DVD releases, so it may be that copyright has lapsed or has reverted to Exclusive Productions, since Warner only distributed it. I am curious about the provenance of the "35mm archival print" used for the 4K restoration, as this was...

    UHD Review A few words about...™ Gladiator (redux) -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    With nearly every steelbook I've owned, i find that downward pressure on the spindle causes the disc to "pop" off. Maybe that's just me.

    International Roadshow Sweet Charity from Indicator

    Region code locking on Indicator titles tends to depend on if there's a North American licencee; even then, it sometimes depends on the licencee and status of licence. The Mad Magician [which I own], for example, is region free, likely because Twilight Time sold out its entire run. I note that...

    3D HTF TOP 30 MUST OWN 3D TITLES

    I've been finding most of my 3D titles that I don't import/order from KLSC at mass marketers in bargain bins. DreamWorks Animation and Paramount titles have been most frequent occupants of these bins, at locations like Shoppers Drug Mart and Giant Tiger.

    The HD master on Disney+ is quite nice, though.
