    West Side Story 70 mm

    Saw this on Deadline Hollywood. Those of us who are fans of this film would give our eye teeth to have been at this screening. Gives me hope that maybe one day....... (The Lightbox in Toronto does occasionally show the movie in 70 mm and it is not a bad print - but not what it could be...

    TCM on Friday nights is currently showing roadshow musicals from the late sixties and early seventies, hosted by Michael Feinstein. Next Friday night is a Julie Andrews triple bill - Darling Lili, Star! and Thoroughly Modern Milie. Not sure about Darling Lili, but I certainly don't remember...

    The Yearling

    A film that is seldom mentioned, but that would make a great Blu-ray, is THE YEARLING. The 3 strip technicolour photography is beautiful. (The film won the Oscar for it). And it features some great nature photography. TCM is showing it this afternoon. It looks better than before as they have...

However, there is no release date. The price is cheap! Kind of surprised with IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT going to Criterion. I hope...

    Denon AVR2000 or Yamaha 675

    Going to buy a new receiver tomorrow. Both the AVR 2000 and the Yamaha 675 are on sale. Reviews seem to suggest the Denon is slightly better, but you can find people in both camps. It will be used for my blu ray, the television and music in a condo living/dining room (about 22 feet long and 11...

    which receiver? Denon or Yamaha

    Time to replace my receiver has mine does not have Dolby HD - just plain old Dolby Digital. I am looking at the Yamaha RXV 575 which retails for about $500 in Canada. I am also considering, and leaning towards, the Denon AVR X2000 which retails for $700 here. (The Denon AVR-X1000 is $500). I...

    Hello from Toronto!

    I've been reading the site for quite a while and finally decided to join so I could occasionally add my two cents worth and ask questions. I really enjoy reading some of the comments and knowing I am not the only "geek" out there who cares about these things. (Like, who was responsible for that...
