    Blu-ray Review The Tales of Hoffmann Blu-ray Review

    Been saving gift cards for this! Today at B&N I pick up The Red Shoes on UHD and Tales of Hoffman blu. Just read this article https://www.criterion.com/current/posts/4091-a-visit-to-the-nitrate-picture-show and wish I lived in a place where I can experience these masterworks on a large...

    Sofia Coppola's On the Rocks - DVD/blu status?

    Thanks so much for reminding me of this! I'd almost completely forgotten about it in recent months. I checked my library--they have blus in circulation so I put one on hold; nice to know Amazon has a good price if I wish it buy afterwards. Thanks again! 😎

    Mitsubishi DLP to Hisense ULED

    I got my Mitsubishi WD-60630 Black Friday weekend 2010--11 years ago. I've only replaced the lamp once. It has continued to perform well until about a week ago it developed a dead spot. The timing actually works out well, as I've been price tracking the 65" Hisense U8G and have targeted...

    Are High-End Monitors Still Worth It?

    Hi, Clinton. I'm about to swap out my 11 year old Mitsubishi DLP. After much time reading reviews and consumer feedback, I'm honing in on the Hisense U8G. I'm anxious to hear what you think of it. The only few consistent negatives I read are ghosting and stutter, but most never mention these...

    UHD Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978) -- in 4k UHD

    Speaking of "bodies", I'd take a UHD of The Unbearable Lightness Of Being 😉--but Body Snatchers will do in the meantime.😎

    Your thoughts on Kino-Lorber Blu-rays

    Just arrived in my mailbox today--new releases Who You Think I Am and White As Snow. Thankful to Cohen and KL for making these films available. Now--could please see to Olivier Assayas' Non-Fiction?

    Flash drive for in car audio--unwanted song shuffle?

    As my new 2020 Kia Sportage has no CD player, I'm now learning how to transfer music from compact disc to USB drive. But I've noticed that when I play in the car, the tracks on any particular album are getting rearranged and played back in alphabetical order by song title. I couldn't find...

    Weekly RoundUp 7-20-2021

    I just picked up La Piscine from my library today, three days before it even hits stores; if I like it I'll get before the B&N sale ends. Bluray.com wasn't kind on the IQ. Too bad.

    Sofia Coppola's On the Rocks - DVD/blu status?

    Criterion Press Release: Irma Vep (1996) (Blu-ray)

    I have the Zeitgeist DVD which I found at Half Price Books. Looking forward to the upgrade! In related news--it was reported last month that Assayas is working on his own remake of Irma Vep, to be an HBO limited series and starring Alicia Vikander.

    LG to unveil first QNED Mini LED TVs at virtual CES

    LOL to the first part of your answer. My current main display is a last-generation Mitsubishi DLP, now 10 years old. I've replaced the lamp in it once; it still performs quite well. I love it--but I know I'll eventually be upgrading. Thankfully, I can already find awesome looking (to my...

    LG to unveil first QNED Mini LED TVs at virtual CES

    The question I keep asking is, when will advancements in video display technology surpass the ability of the healthy human eye to discern any difference?

    Is it possible to reproduce the original look of Eyes Wide Shut on Blu?

    Restoration, remaster...call it what you will--but the video quality on the studio blu was very mediocre, even by pre-4K standards. It's obvious work needs to be done for it to be Criterion (or Arrow, or Kino) worthy.

    Is it possible to reproduce the original look of Eyes Wide Shut on Blu?

    Last I knew, EWS was rumored to be getting a fresh restoration and release on The Criterion Collection. Anyone heard anything lately?

    Blu-ray Review Crash (1996) Blu-ray Review (Criterion Collection)

    I'd have this already, if it hadn't come out the day after the B&N sale ended. Will no doubt order from Criterion direct during February sale.

    Weekly RoundUp 12-1-2020

    Will pick up Crash only if B&N opts to extend the Criterion sale a day or two. Other than that, I intend to introduce my wife to Continental Divide at some point.

    Amazon "Renewed" for a PC - thoughts/reviews?

    I'm shopping for a new desktop tower, as mine has been upgraded to its limits. I see some machines with good specs thru Amazon's "renewed" for decent prices. I've read their quality control and guarantee policies and they sound good; has anyone purchased a refurbished computer through Amazon...

    A Few Words About A few words about…™ Romance on the High Seas – in Blu-ray

    If my wife and I already own a movie we love on DVD, that's always good enough for her; sometimes it is for me, as well. Not this time. A surprise and delight is your assessment, Mr. Harris--thank you!
