    Collaborations: The Cinema of Zhang Yimou & Gong Li Blu-ray

    I couldn't find much chatter on this release except on CriterionForum.org. Anyway, I've long wondered why Zhang's oldest films from the late 1980s and 1990s have not had an acceptable release on BD, so I'd say this Collaborations collection is long overdue.

    We have wish lists, but what's on your dump list?

    I'm not going as far as to Marie Kondo-ize my physical media collection, but as I've been confronted with the realities of limited time and limited storage space, the truth is there are items in my collection that do not "spark joy" (insert latest Kondo punchline here) and that must give up...

    Anyone take a Master Class?

    The ads are ubiquitous on YouTube and they seem great, even if you're not interested in being a screenwriter or whatever, to be able to listen to Kevin Spacey, Steve Martin, David Mamet, et al talk about their work and craft. I assumed it was expensive, but 20+ lessons for $90 seems very...

    Display for digital signage

    I'm looking for a display for digital signage that will serve as a welcome sign and schedule for my employer's daily events and activities. The source content will be 1080p still images/graphics via Rise Vision. However there aren't many choices of 1080p displays at 60 inches and above; the vast...

    The influence of China on Hollywood filmmaking

    I'm not sure how many here follow Comic Book Girl 19 on YouTube, but I really enjoy and appreciate her opinions on media and entertainment, though I may not always agree with them.

    Let's talk dishwashers!

    We've been using a Bosch Aventa for the last few months. It's been a bit of a process learning how to use it, but have finally settled on a consistent methodology that yields a good wash without defeating the energy and water saving purposes. A part of me still feels like the whole process is a...

    Regal Cinemas and Chinese films

    It's been a couple years since I've been to or thought about going to the movie theater, but I've started looking at the weekly slate again and am surprised to see consistent offerings of Chinese films.

    What skills are you working on / how do you want to improve?

    And the answer shouldn't be "by getting that new lens." :) Mine is portraiture. I admire portraiture work immensely but at the same time it inspires me, it is also where I have the least experience (or is where I want to most improve). So incrementally I'm trying to get better at it and not...

    Let's Talk Headphones

    Headphones seem to be a neglected topic on this site, for some obvious, but also not so obvious, reasons. But I think it's time we change that! With the recent Black Friday sales I know a few of us got some good deals on highly rated headphones like the Audio-Technica ATH-M50x, which I've...

    Might need to replace my 50" Panasonic plasma

    I'm going to give it a good dust out tomorrow, but if that doesn't fix it, I'm looking at finding a replacement. Plasma seems non-existent in the usual spots like Best Buy and Costco, so I guess I'm "stuck" with LED. 50" is about the maximum I can go and front projection is not an option. I'd...

    Equipment storage

    I'm curious how others store their gear, both the frequently and less frequently used. I've traditionally had one bag to hold the less frequently used items and another to hold my standard kit, with the thought I can just grab and go the latter and not have to think about what's in it...

    Mechanical Keyboards Anyone?

    Just curious who prefers to use them, what model you own, and what type of switches (e.g. Cherry MX Red, Blue, etc.). A $100+ keyboard is no doubt a luxury item, but I'm curious enough about the experience to want to try it out. Maybe I should just bust out my Apple IIc? :D
