    International THE JUNGLE BOOK (aka DAS DSCHUNGELBUCH in Germany) (1942)

    Unless I chose a wrong option, looks like the current sellers on Amazon DE are not shipping to the States.

    Is there NO 4K player that doesn’t have freezing issues?!

    Other than being 4K enabled, what does my Oppo UDP 205 run as far as HDR? DV enabled? It may have locked up once on 4K but honestly have not sampled a lot of 4K. Have a few issues going back and forth from Region 1/Region 2.

    Cabin In The Sky

    Is there any difference between the two releases on dvd for Cabin In The Sky? 2006 release against the MOD re-release? Is there a generalization about MOD's that one can state? Thanks Craig

    Press Release Criterion Press Release: The Red Shoes (1948) (4k UHD)

    Regretted missing this in Los Angeles a few years ago. Isn't the music culled from the many soundtracks of Bernard Herrmann?

    A Star Is Born 1954 Reconstruction

    Is Ned Price still at WB Home Video? If not who would have taken over that position? Trying to find out if an End Credit card has completely disappeared from the reconstructed re-release of A Star Is Born. Thanks. Craig Holt

    Thanks for this. I had always assumed such but curious. Craig

    5.1 Playback in 2 Channel

    Currently I have an Oppo UDP 205 running through Rotel RA 1572. L - R speakers are B & W CM10 S2. TV is Sony 77" A9G OLED. My question: Do the 5.1 audio mixes (e.g. District 9) playing through my decidedly 2 channel set -up simply mix down automatically? Dialogue seems to be favored in the...

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

    Haven't seen this in a zillion years but I recall a low key yet masterful earthquake sequence. Slavko Vorkapich gets a credit up front for Montage (Sequence?)

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ The Marseille Trilogy -- in Blu-ray

    Just ordered The Bakers Wife. Hoping for the same treatment some day for CARNIVAL IN FLANDERS. Haven't seen it since the 70's but I recall the same slightly bawdy interplay described for Baker's Wife.

    A Few Words About A few words about…™ The Harvey Girls – in Blu-ray

    'The Harvey Girls' does look terrific. And I also noticed color shift/saturation shifting beginning around 12:25 until about the 25:00 mark. EQ on these discs seems pretty good. Wasn't sure if it was my 75" A9G OLED. But they were present on second viewing.

    Blu-ray Review Love Me Tonight – Blu-ray Review

    Guess I’m not a fan of her particular operetta voice. For me she’s at her best not singing.

    Blu-ray Review Love Me Tonight – Blu-ray Review

    I'll second almost everything this review asserts. Had the DVD for years and it wasn't all that awful. But the new Blu - Ray is a vast improvement. Especially the sound. The weakest link for me is Jeanette MacDonald. But the rest of the cast really sparkles in one of the great musicals. Hoping...

    Rita Hayworth - Ultimate Collection from Mill Creek - 11/17/2020

    Now that I have an All Region blu ray player (modified my Oppo), been investigating slightly obscure (to me) labels. Kind of difficult to parse which different restorations are superior without definite guidance. Any thoughts on Indicator/Powerhouse "The Big Heat' over Twilight Time? 'The Chase'...

    Blu-ray Review The Lady Eve Blu-ray Review

    Was looking forward to a real stunner as this is a favorite movie. Can't say I was knocked out by a number of washed out close-ups or the very dupey look generally. In any event, my guess is that this may be the best it will ever look. The 1939 'Hunchback" is a totally different look, but when...

    Modify Oppo UDP 203 For Region B/2

    Sounds fairly easy. Anyone aware of a downside to adapting the Oppo for All Region? Almost everything has a side effect. Thank you all for your help.

    Modify Oppo UDP 203 For Region B/2

    Thank you David. Definitely check it out. Youtube has led me through some otherwise daunting procedures. Or maybe I can find someone here in southern California. Best

    Modify Oppo UDP 203 For Region B/2

    Hi Again Pretty sure I’m not ready to do this but a qualified tech could perform this. After the board is installed is there a function to perform or player chooses which Region and board to choose? After I asked Oppo customer service why the players were not Region Free or multi region I was...

    Hi David I may not be the right person for the job. Easy for you but a challenge for me. I’m a techno-peasant.

    Thanks for your response John. Not sure I’m up for opening up the player. But will investigate

    Modify Oppo UDP 203 For Region B/2

    Thanks for responding John. Would you be able to provide any further information? What it's called? Is it a plug? Do you simply add it and remove it when playing Region 1 discs? Thanks. Craig

    Modify Oppo UDP 203 For Region B/2

    First time posting..... I've been led to believe that a kit/device exists to adapt my Oppo UDP 203 to allow the player to play other Region Blu rays. Oppo customer service didn't mention how this works but asserted it was an exterior hook up rather than something inside the player. Does...

    Blu-ray Review On the Waterfront Blu-ray Review

    Hello Count. First time caller.....Can anyone comment on the source of Sony's All Region 1:66 Blu Ray? Have not seen it but not necessarily interested in all three Criterion versions. Especially since as someone pointed out 1:66 seems like a fine compromise.
