    Pre-Order The Blues Brothers (1980) (4k UHD) Available for Preorder

    I guess because I started the movie from the "chapter" selection, it bypassed the screen that allows you to choose the version. Tried it again tonight, pressed "play" and all is good.

    Pre-Order The Blues Brothers (1980) (4k UHD) Available for Preorder

    Watched the 4K disc last night. Great transfer. I read a review that says you can select the theatrical or extended version on the 4K disc. On my Panasonic player (DP-UB820) , I didn't see that option.

    A Few Words About A few words about…™ To Catch a Thief (redux) – in Blu-ray

    They had it in SD some time ago. Then it disappeared for a while. Now it's back in HD. I don't Know if it's a new transfer, but if you have Amazon Prime, and don't mind streaming, it's as good as I've ever seen it.

    A Few Words About A few words about…™ To Catch a Thief (redux) – in Blu-ray

    Though I'm not a big fan of streaming, Amazon Prime has The Court Jester which looks great. Hopefully this will get a 4K BD release. After reading the reviews, I'll not be purchasing the new To Catch a Thief BD. Hopefully, this title will get recalled and redone correctly.

    Press Release Paramount Presents: Airplane! (1980) (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    Of all the comedies I've seen at a movie theater over my almost 65 years on the planet, Airplane tops them all in the laughs per minute department! The first run audience, myself included, were laughing so hard and for so long that tears were flowing. When the S#!T hit the fan, I almost peed my...

    A Few Words About While we wait for A few words about...™ Lawrence of Arabia -- in 4k/UHD Blu-ray

    Thanks. I already own the Panasonic DP-UB820. I will definitely be checking out some tutorials for the tone mapping settings when LOA 4K arrives.

    A Few Words About While we wait for A few words about...™ Lawrence of Arabia -- in 4k/UHD Blu-ray

    I've only a few 4K UHD Blu-rays with Dolby Vision. Haven't noticed anything abnormal when viewed on the projector. From what I've read about the differences between the static vs dynamic rendering of the HDR, perhaps it's subtle enough as not to ruin things very much. I guess I'll find out in a...

    A Few Words About While we wait for A few words about...™ Lawrence of Arabia -- in 4k/UHD Blu-ray

    Pre-Ordered. But I don't know of any projectors that include Dolby Vision. I'm sure this will look great on my 65" LG C9 (which does Dolby Vision). But since graduating to projection, I've always preferred viewing LOA on my largest screen. Will Dolby Vision play nice with projectors that can...

    3D HTF TOP 30 MUST OWN 3D TITLES

    I received a UPS delivery notice for tomorrow from Amazon UK. For a minute I thought it might be Rise of Sywalker 3D. But upon checking further, it's The Mad Magician 3D, which I had totally forgotten about. But it looks like ROS 3D hasn't been cancelled. At least not yet anyway:

    3D HTF TOP 30 MUST OWN 3D TITLES

    I just watched King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017) tonight. I don't think this will be everyone's cup of tea, but the 3D was very well done. It's a conversion, but I didn't know that when I was watching, and because it had some really good pop out moments, I would have sworn that it was real 3D.

    I finally went ALL-IN on 4K!!!

    Yes. I have already been in communication with a well known ISF calibrator and will probably have it done sometime this spring after I return from my Philippines vacation. Meanwhile, I have found that the "out of the box" "Cinema 1" setting seems to look best to my untrained eyes.

    I finally went ALL-IN on 4K!!!

    Some pix as requested. The new 4k Sony 885ES laser projector is on the rear rack underneath the rear surrounds. Under that is the Sharp DLP 3D projector. The new 65" LG C9 OLED (movable, on wheels) is in front of the "Ultra Panavision" 143" diagonal screen. The 120" diagonal 16x9 screen...
