    For the love of movies: The Past, Present, and Future of Cinema and what makes us fans

    Entertainment. I believe this word has different meanings for us when we choose to watch or grade a movie, regardless of how we heard about it. I'm pretty sure nowadays we have the benefit of watching the trailer to see if it even elicits our interest, despite the word of mouth through social...

    UHD Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ The Piano -- in 4k UHD

    You wouldn't by chance have the previous Blu for comparison's sake? I'm just curious if the new Blu is also a better buy than the previous incarnation.

    Should "Classic" Films be released on 4K/UHD?

    My take is that it depends on the studio and who performs the 4K transfer. I end up reading the reviews before deciding to plunk down the hard cash. Movies like Lawrence of Arabia, My Fair Lady, Ten Commandments, and Jaws (if that can be considered Classic) received rave reviews for their 4K...

    UHD Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ Pirates of the Caribbean - The Curse of the Black Pearl -- in 4k UHD

    Do we even consider this as a foreshadowing of the similar quality for all the other POTC 4k releases?

    From The Digital Bits some Paramount 4K titles in 2021!

    They should've targeted May 20th for MFL's release, since that's when Eliza Doolittle's Day is (if you watched the movie).

    Weekly RoundUp 11-24-2020

    Curious, does the Monty Python's Flying Circus: The Complete Series Bluray that comes out also on the 24th not count as as a new release? Here's the Amazon link: Amazon.com: Monty Python's Flying Circus: The Complete Series [Blu-ray]: Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry...

    Pre-Order The Lord of the Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy (4k UHD Steelbook) Available for Preorder

    I think he meant consolidating the Extended version into 1 disc. The past bluray versions had each single extended version into 2 discs. Given that these are now UHD, and a larger capacity, I was hoping this iteration of the Extended versions would fit into 1 disc. Based on Bill Hunt's info...

    I think I am done with Sony.

    I could be in the minority here, but so far my choice to go with the XBox One S as a 4K disk player has been working flawlessly since there's been firmware updates for the player app. I feel Microsoft has to beef up the drive and keep the player app updated to keep the player community happy...

    Disney Complete Animation 57 disc set 5 still DVD only

    It's just sad that they still choose to ignore that Song of the South as one of their animated classics.

    Weekly RoundUp 9-3-2019

    Ok, do any of these Ealing comedies by KL come with CC (subtitles)? Anyone know what the specs are if they do come with them? Only reason I ask is that thick English accents can be challenging at times to understand.

    Weekly RoundUp 3-27-2018

    Funny how Amazon shows there's a 3D version of Last Jedi. Is that a typo, or is it something that's probably only a non-US release?

    Weekly RoundUp 8-30-2016

    I could be wrong, but Amazon's website shows there's a 3D version available that also includes the 2D Blu-Ray.

    Weekly RoundUp 11-17-2015

    That link to the Hobbit with Figurine Amazon Exclusive is not to the 3D version. I lost a pre-order because I thought it was the same, and canceled my pre-order. Only to find out this exclusive with figurine is only for the 2D version. Very misleading.

    Win a Pioneer Elite SC-95 Dolby Atmos Receiver

    Here's my feeble attempt at a home theater. My receiver is so old, that it won't even do passthrough of HDMI inputs. Getting a Dolby Atmos stereo would leapfrog me to the latest century!

    For me they said the original promo was a gift card, so they just gave me a $5 Amazon credit. Oy!

    Any chance, someone who screenshotted the JW $5 GC offer can post it on here? I got my shipping confirmation, but no GC.

    Win a Denon X5200W 9.2 channel Dolby Atmos AVR with a copy of Insurgent on Blu-ray!

    I only have a modest setup currently, So, having a Dolby Atmos setup would mean adding 2 overhead speakers, and that would push me to upgrade my current TV as well to be one of those passive 3D UHD sets, possibly 75". I need every incentive to bring my home theater to current standards.

    Weekly Roundup 9/9

    I'm just happy that they're offering a $5 rebate (inside the DVD) for previous owners of Sleeping Beauty VHS. So, given that I bought SB for $19.99 from the Disney store, less the $10 GC they offered, plus the lithographs, less the $5 rebate for previous VHS owners, I ended up practically paying...

    Weekly Roundup 4/29

    Speaking of Costco, I just came from mine today and they had some Disney classic movies on sale for $12.99 each. These include: 1) A Goofy Movie 2) Sword in the Stone 3) Fun and Fancy Free 4) Robin Hood I picked up items 2-4 since it's hard enough to find them at those prices. I know...

    Miyazaki Set. Best Price?

    I too am waiting for the Miyazaki 3-set. However, they may be cheaper to buy individually. Note that just in time when I bought "Roger Rabbit", I found out about the $3 off coupon that's in the April issues of Better Homes and Garden, and Parents Magazine, just behind the cover pages. In there...
