    UHD Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ - The Alfred Hitchcock Classics Collection - Volume Two -- in 4k UHD

    Thank you for catching that! Did a quick edit. I must have confused Torn Curtain with Land of the Giants. A completely understandable error for a 66-year-old.. ;)

    The Offer (2022)

    I'm up to episode 5. I'm really enjoying this min-series! I know that some liberties were taken with the facts, but if even half of it is true, it's proving to be a very well cast, well acted production. Be sure to watch the extra behind the scenes short at the very end of each episode.

    UHD Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ - The Alfred Hitchcock Classics Collection - Volume Two -- in 4k UHD

    I still cringe when watching Wolfgang Kieling's scene in Torn Curtain. I've read somewhere that Sir Alfred wanted to show how difficult it is to kill someone.

    If it's always been there, then chalk it up to the native American blanket flaw. ;)

    UHD Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ - The Alfred Hitchcock Classics Collection - Volume Two -- in 4k UHD

    After I had already watched The Trouble With Harry, but before RAH posted his review, I happened upon a YouTube review where the reviewer claims to have spotted a "halo efffect" around the head of "the actor coming up the hill first sees Harry's body" and also a "blurring" around the trees in...

    Already watched Shadow of a Doubt and The Trouble With Harry. Waited for the "grain report" before posting. Couldn't be happier! :)

    UHD Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ - The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance -- in 4k UHD

    Before the advent of internet reviews, I used to read that publication cover to cover! Mr. Pratt's reviews cost me way more money (when adjusted for inflation) than even yours do!!!

    Pre-Order Final Destination: 5-Film Collection (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    I believe that the ones released on BD 3D were filmed in real 3D, not conversions. I own them all. The films may not be to everyone's taste, but the 3D is absolutely reference quality.

    THE CARDINAL - 1963

    I have the German BD. Starts out a bit grainy, but the colors pop. I would like to see a really good transfer in 4K UHD happen.

    Pre-Order Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1941) (Blu-ray) (Warner Archive Collection) Available for Preorder

    Pre-Ordered. When author W. Somerset Maugham visited the set during the filming, he supposedly watched a bit of Spencer Tracy's performance and asked sardonically, "Which one is he now, Jekyll or Hyde?"

    UHD Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ -The Godfather(s) 50th Anniversary Restoration -- in 4k UHD

    Just finished watching the new 4K UHD Godfather Part III. I won't say which version I watched, they all have their pluses and minuses, and we already have enough controversy here. But now that I've seen them all, I have pretty much decided which one is going to be my go-to version from now on. I...

    UHD Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ -The Godfather(s) 50th Anniversary Restoration -- in 4k UHD

    I'm completely in favor of having a reissue of the 2007 restoration on 4K UHD BD. I'm sure that that would keep both camps happy. However, I am pleased with what has been done to "update" the 2007 restoration to satisfy the tastes of a 2022 audience. Especially considering that it has the seal...

    UHD Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ -The Godfather(s) 50th Anniversary Restoration -- in 4k UHD

    Had a Godfather marathon these last few days. Finished Part II early this morning. The new 4K transfers have knocked my socks off! Can't speak for anyone else, but I found them to be extremely watchable. Yes, the "Filmed Yesterday" look took a bit of getting used to, but the super sharp and...

    Saw the film when it first came out. It's always been that way. If you don't speak Italian, there's always this: https://www.tigerdroppings.com/rant/movie-tv/ever-wondered-what-sollozo-and-michael-say-in-italian/47859821/

    UHD Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ -The Godfather(s) 50th Anniversary Restoration -- in 4k UHD

    I know how you feel Ron. I don't claim to have the same trained eye as RAH, but I noticed the difference between the 2008 BD, and this latest incarnation immediately. To my eyes, the image looks as though it was filmed with one of today's 4K digital rigs. And some scenes even have sort of a...
