    The Last Time I Saw Paris never released on Blu-ray

    I like Van but would rather prefer WB release Miracle In The Rain.

    ‘Avatar 2’ Renews Push for 3D Format in Movie Theaters

    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”.

    A Serious Question --- Why Is Sanford And Son and All In The Family Okay And Amos And Andy Not

    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.

    A Serious Question --- Why Is Sanford And Son and All In The Family Okay And Amos And Andy Not

    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.

    A Serious Question --- Why Is Sanford And Son and All In The Family Okay And Amos And Andy Not

    Please shut this thread down as it's pretty despicable how someone can't tell the difference how A&A isn't offensive in 2022.

    Well why are the black crows in The Wiz ok but the black crows in Dumbo not?

    UHD Review Giant UHD Review

    Thanks for the review Todd. Besides the vividness and “pop”iness of the colors is the film grain intact? If memory serve this film has a lot of it on the prior blu-ray.

    UHD Review The Batman UHD Review

    Great review. Love the comparison to the Adam West series as the detective element I’ve always enjoyed and really works here as well.

    UHD Review For a Few Dollars More – UHD Blu-ray Review

    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.

    UHD Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ - A Fistful of Dollars & For a Few Dollars More -- in 4k UHD

    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?

    Seriously? Understand sarcasm?

    Any word on The Abyss?

    The Abyss will be re-released in a 4K DCP and will be shown at The Ziegfeld theater in NYC where it originally premiered. :P

    Hmm- isn’t that more the Fox way than the Cameron way?

    Any word on The Abyss?

    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...

    UHD Review Lawrence of Arabia 60th Anniversary Steelbook UHD Review

    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...

    UHD Review Lawrence of Arabia 60th Anniversary Steelbook UHD Review

    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.

    UHD Review Lawrence of Arabia 60th Anniversary Steelbook UHD Review

    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!

    UHD Review Lawrence of Arabia 60th Anniversary Steelbook UHD Review

    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...

    Saw the steel book at Best Buy today and it’s glossy and I’ll leave it at that.

    What was your very first movie on physical media purchase?

    Thank you. You are absolutely correct! Then it was Mary Poppins 3D converted on Viewmaster and I’m 100% sure that had actual film frames from the movie! I will edit my original post. Thanks

    What was your very first movie on physical media purchase?

    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.

    UHD Review Lawrence of Arabia 60th Anniversary Steelbook UHD Review

    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...

    UHD Review Lawrence of Arabia 60th Anniversary Steelbook UHD Review

    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...

    UHD Review Lawrence of Arabia 60th Anniversary Steelbook UHD Review

    Nothing will ever match watching this in its analogue form no matter how technically I’m told it’s this or that but sadly those days are gone with the wind.

    UHD Review 1776 UHD Review

    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...
