    I asked about this (I think in the Singin' In The Rain thread) and was informed that 4K discs down-converted to HD looked really bad

    I hope selling discs in 4K UHD doesn't affect also selling on Blu-Ray. As someone who isn't 4K viewable, it is distressing not to be able to see the new Giant restoration. I have many 3D titles that I am not willing to give up, so I can't move to 4K viewable until manufacturers bring back 3D...

    Apparently, the June releases will be a Judy Garland triple release (possibly tied to her 100th birthday June 7th) The Clock Ziegfeld Girl Me And My Gal No news if these will be all the June titles or not.

    If you don't mind my asking, is there a particular reason you chose Love Finds Andy Hardy only, over all the other Andy Hardy entries?

    If the podcast was from six months ago, he might have been referring to Brothers Grimm

    Actually, that is not true. There are many, many titles shown on HBO Max that are not Blu-Ray ready Each month in the HBO Max thread, new titles are discussed, and while they may be in HD, they haven’t been fully cleaned up/restored

    Hey, As long as they announce title "X" I'm happy (or star "Y" or director "Z"). And as a life-long Die-Hard Cubs fan, the phrase "wait until next ..." is ingrained in my psyche.

    My number one wish continues to be Captain Blood I understand there may be asset issues and such. But I am perplexed at how often it is not even part of the conversation (podcasts, etc.)

    February titles are starting to show up The Three Musketeers (1948) Edge Of Darkness (and an Amazon placeholder for Golddiggers Of 1933)

    MovieZyng.com is the storefront for the manufacturer (Allied Vaughn). Since they actually produce the discs, they tend to have the widest array of titles. They currently have Night Court S7 in stock. In regards to the burned/pressed issue. That was always hit or miss, even during the...

    I'm not sure why you would be sad if Gay Divorcee was the one being worked on. Your second sentence implies you want it.

    It wasn't specified. Some candidates (that people are speculating) are The Gay Divorcee, Manhattan Melodrama, Forsaking All Others, Dames. (although the podcast mentioned an OCN, and supposedly MM's negative no longer exists)

    Since they changed the trailer to remove the Blu-Ray reference (that was there earlier), IMO that quashes the rumor that a High Society release is imminent.

    I've seen Fury several times (as well as The Ox-Bow Incident). I agree both are excellent films. But neither are among my 'favorites'. I just don't 'need' to have them in my collection.

    Is this confirmed? Or a wish list? I would be in for at least three (Lullaby Of Broadway, Last Of Sheila, Thin Man Goes Home), possibly a fourth (National Velvet)

    Of course we don't know what was being worked on when the ax fell earlier. Did that work just stop? If the staff was 65% done on something when everything stopped, theoretically it would only require 35% effort to finish. They would necessarily have to start at the beginning on some...

    I’ve seen you say that ‘asset protection’ drives these restorations. But who at these companies care about asset preservation? I thought all the people who care have been let go. How do these assets increase the bottom line for the bean counters who run/own these companies? Who benefits from...

    I've seen (and read reports) of OCNs being used and less than stellar discs being produced. And I've seen (and read about) the opposite - later generation images as the source producing fantastic results. I feel it the the primary source is less important than the talents and skills involved...

    Except that’s not demonstrably true. Hundreds of titles have an HD streaming version but, so far, restorations have been done primarily for titles getting a Blu-Ray release. If restorations start being done for streaming, then physical will become just that, a byproduct - essentially screwing...

    I say leave the streaming content as ugly as possible. This is a Blu-Ray thread, and the more we can steer people away from streaming the better.
