    Thanks for sharing this, Robert_Zohn . Any idea on expected availability? Are these next year's models, or further out?

    Sony announces pricing and availability on select 2021 OLED and LED TVs

    Looks good, Robert_Zohn ! Thinking you meant to say 1st allocation of X90J, though :) I would be interested in your initial impressions as to how it compares to the 2020 X900H if/when you get a demo unit set up... Major improvements, or just incremental?

    Sony announces new TV models and ‘Cognitive Processor XR’

    Thanks for that info, Robert. Unfortunately, the A90J is is a bit out of my budget, as much as I would love to go for it. The X90J is probably more in line with what I want to spend for a 65-inch... any initial impressions as to how it will compare to the 2020 X900H? Major improvements, or...

    Sony announces new TV models and ‘Cognitive Processor XR’

    @Robert_Zohn (or anyone else who might know), I'm very interested in Sony's 2021 lineup, but I'm a little concerned about Sony's descriptions about what the XR processor does with all this AI-based image enhancement and how that might affect creator's intent with respect to reproducing what's...

    Sony 2020 TV line-up, with surprise news

    Wow, those are some tempting prices on the 65" A8H and the 75" X900! It seems lots of sites say to go bigger if you can at expense of picture quality (within reason), but is going down to 65" for OLED worth it if choosing between these two? But I do like the future-proofed HDMI and ATSC tuner...

    Avatar: The Way of Water (2022)

    Seems half the people replying to his twitter update about this delay are saying the same thing. Maybe he will finally get the hint!

    Denon announces new 2020 receivers with HDMI 2.1 and 8K 60fps/4K 120fps

    Robert, Are you planning to carry the AVR-S960H model as well? I'm not seeing a link or spec sheet for that one on your Denon 2020 webpage. Thanks.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ It's a Wonderful Life (Corrected)-- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    Your pics with HDR (bottom) look better to me than those without (top) as far as grayscale... the top pics have a lot of detail getting lost in the dark areas. So what is your specific complaint about the HDR pics? Do you actually prefer the look without HDR, or are they both bad in your...

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ It's a Wonderful Life (Corrected)-- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    Mr. Harris, Your thoughts on this controversy have been interesting and appreciated, and your above post in particular brings the following question to mind: Is the true goal (in your opinion) of any film restoration that starts with the original negative to make the final master look like a...

    Star Trek films on Blu-Ray... what we know so far

    Well I hope they at least do the next-best (or better?) thing and release a box set this year of all the TOS-crew films remastered in 4k UHD. That would be a fitting celebration of the 40th anniversary of TOS crew's debut on the big screen!

    oh why not....THE ABYSS

    Not that we should get our hopes up based on the history of this never-happening release, but I stole this link from a post at the blu-ray forums: https://www.instagram.com/p/Buji4C_gkc_/?utm_source=ig_embed&utm_medium=loading (Skip Kimball is the colorist Lightstorm/Cameron have been using...

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ 2001: a space odyssey -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    I don't disagree, Robert, but a known perfectionist like Kubrick would probably object to the error were he still alive. Something for WB and Leon Vitali/Kubrick estate to hash out, I guess.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ 2001: a space odyssey -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    Interesting. So should we expect a fixed disc down the line and/or replacement program? Also, congratulations to those of you who snagged a copy of 2001:Extended Edition ;)

    The Predator (September 14, 2018)

    If the only good thing we end up getting out of this sequel is the excellent 4k UHD of the original Predator as a marketing tie-in, then The Predator will have served its purpose.

    Pre-Order 2001: A Space Odyssey (4k UHD) Available for Preorder

    Although that is not surprising for 10 am on a weekday morning, IMO. I hope the evening and weekend showings are getting more interest, though.

    Man In the High Castle (Amazon)

    That is great news, but where did you see that is has already been renewed? I hope so, as this show is really excellent. Edit: Nevermind, Google search revealed lots of sites reporting the renewal. Awesome news!

    Bond 25 - "No Time to Die" (2021)

    Very true... After my initial positive impressions of Skyfall faded, I came to the same conclusion! And the more I think about how that one ends, the more I feel like the writers really cheated Bond out of a victory just for a cheap emotional moment. Seems that the better way to end Skyfall...

    Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018)

    Trying to decide on format as well for this weekend... I saw Last Jedi in Dolby Cinema and was quite impressed with the image and sound. So I am leaning towards seeing MI6 in that as well, but I always prefer to see films in the intended presentation. Does anyone know if the 1.90:1 sequences...

    Pre-Order 2001: A Space Odyssey (4k UHD) Available for Preorder

    While Robert Harris' comments do not inspire confidence, I think there is too much uncertainty about the ComicCon presentation for any of us to conclude that the sky is falling. All we have is that one guy's impression, and there are SO many variables that could have affected the image quality...

    Pre-Order 2001: A Space Odyssey (4k UHD) Available for Preorder

    It definitely makes for an amusing fact if true, considering Nolan's line of work; but that link really is just one guy who claims Nolan was working for him in 90s. Other than that, I don't think we should speculate or start down the road of denigrating Nolan's capabilities as a filmmaker even...

    Pre-Order 2001: A Space Odyssey (4k UHD) Available for Preorder

    I think I feel the same way. Nolan is pretty much my favorite working filmmaker at the moment, but if it comes to light that the UHD release is less than what it could be because of his input, then that will leave a really bad taste in my mouth. 2001 is not my personal favorite film, but I do...

    Pre-Order 2001: A Space Odyssey (4k UHD) Available for Preorder

    I agree the haphazard and uncoordinated release of info regarding the roadshow and the UHD has thrown all kinds of red flags. But the press release does have this statement (emphasis mine): "Building on the work done for the new 70mm prints, the 4K UHD with HDR presentation was mastered from...

    2001: A Space Odyssey is a 4K/UHD Release possible?
