    A PEEK AT THE BEST YEARS OF OUR LIVES - WARNER ARCHIVE EDITION

    Wyler ended his career better than Stevens, Hitchcock or Wilder did. Huston ended well, Zinneman, too. It's rough to stick the landing when your skills are diminished and you've got a lot of 'Yes' people around you.

    UHD Review Giant UHD Review

    Rock Hudson's problems with James Dean didn't have anything to do with being turned down (although, I have no doubt that may have happened), but rather Dean's style of acting seemed disrespectful and time wasting to Hudson. In addition to Geroge Stevens' love of numerous takes per camera setup...

    UHD Review Lawrence of Arabia 60th Anniversary Steelbook UHD Review

    "Lawrence" arrived today. One very minor dent on the front left-hand corner/rim that I couldn't see with the wrapping covering it. One scratch on the back, but it isn't very noticeable. Not too bad for a steelbook via the mail.

    Blu-ray Review A Few Words About A few words about…™ The Horse Soldiers – in Blu-ray

    If you didn't buy the MGM release, buy this one. If you're a fan of the film and have the MGM release, still buy this one! It's has a similar look to the HD version on the MGMHD channel.

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

    George Stevens was a big fan of lap dissolves around this time (i.e. A Place in the Sun, not so much Shane) and therefore that's what they did. I bought mine today in an actual store!!!

    Wait, wasn't there a number of issues with the blu-ray of "The Bishop's Wife"? Maybe that's why it's OOP.

    Pre-Order Giant (1956) (4k UHD) Available for Preorder

    Such a shame this won't be released on blu-ray. I can't upgrade to 4K at the moment nor at any time in the foreseeable future. So pissed I won't be able to see one of my top 20 films of all-time in this new master. WB should be ashamed of themselves.

    "Phobia" isn't nearly as bad as people make it out to be. John Huston fans need to pick this up while they can.

    Biblical-Roman-Egyptian epics not yet on Blu-ray

    I recall from the DVD's that the various members of the member-states of the empire arriving at the German fort looked really overbaked. I guess that look has been continued on these blu-ray releases. Oh, well.
