Maybe the HFR renders even better 3D viewing? Maybe the glasses will be new and different and the image won’t have to be overly brightened to view? Looks like a whole new level of technology that he’s bringing to this. I doubt JC would go for a Motion Flow “soap opera effect”.
Rejoice! James Cameron just announced he’s re-releasing Titanic in 3D 4K HDR w high frame rate to theaters for its 25th anniversary!
Can we get a thread started and an Amen!
A socially conscious Norman Lear show vs what's basically a white-produced/written minstrel show with minstrel roots that the NAACP rejected is a no- brainer. End of story for me. Not that difficult to figure out.
Please provide links as I recently watched it and found it terrible and ridiculous. Cant't Stop The Music is even better IMHO.
But Times Square (1980 and just released on blu) on the other hand has only grown in stature and I highly recommend it.
Would anyone know why the restored opening logos are missing? Seems odd for KL given it’s from the same source? And I’m taking it film grain is intact even if not directly mentioned in the review? I haven’t seen the BRs.
Ordered yesterday from Amz thanks RC.
And as I prefer mostly mild to no HDR for classic films and given a gain in resolution as others have mentioned more than 2K it’s a no- brainer to buy.
But why would the pre-opening titles be changed if it’s the exact same scan as others are saying?
But if that’s the case wouldn’t Disney still make available a digital version to buy on iTunes, or wherever like other Disney titles? Even if it’s HD only I would certainly buy it.
As for Avatar I could scare less for a 4K version as I own the 3D disc which is the only way to view it as it was...
Sorry to hear about your dent. Not sure where you are but Best Buy here in NY had plenty when I was there Tuesday and I think you can order online. If it weren’t for that ghastly art I would have picked one up. Missed opportunity for Sony imho
Hoping Marnie gets one but I doubt it. North By...
Opening day for The Empire Strike Back I’ll never forget at The Astor- a movie even better than Star Wars (as it was only called back then)! The audience just burst into rapturous applause at the end. Saw it 3 times total -2 more at other NYC venues but nothing could ever surpass that.
I agree will a lot of what you are saying but nothing beat the Ziegfeld for pure seating comfort alone. For me it all went downhill once they went DCP with SW2-Attack of the Clones. Very simple- too dim
Most importantly they also made fresh popcorn!
Hey Man - If I recall, as I saw Avatar 3D there, isn’t the screen a metal mesh, the seating extremely close, and no center aisle but entirely made up of looong rows so god forbid if you ever have to get up to ……..
I do like 3D there - I saw Avatat and The Polar Express there. But when I saw...
The Black Stallion on Betamax.
Not a full movie per se but must mention 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea on Viewmaster!
Edit: It was Mary Poppins NOT 20k UTS as that had puppets reenacting the film. MP had actual film frames converted to 3D.
Now that’s an expensive movie ticket!
How these zillionaire film people that all live in NYC Scorsese , Spielberg, De Niro, Allen, etc let this happen and did nothing to save the Ziegfeld boggles the mind. Yet all they talk about is film restoration! Where’s the theater to show them on??
I saw the original West Side Story in December and thought it lacking from what I remembered especially the original analogue theatrical sound- hiss and all over the over digitized versions we now have. Heavens Gate digital restoration was far inferior from the original I saw but that’s another...
It looks good but not great to me but I think that’s inherent of the film stock used at the time and not any fault of the disc itself. Visually it reminds me of another film made in the same period Reader’s Digest Musical Adaptation of Tom Sawyer. And as the reviewer mentions (sic) dated in its...
