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

    Was the VHS release Pan & Scan? Perhaps that contributed to some of the conspiracy theories about the diner scene since you would have seen each actor's face and not much else.

    UHD Review The Godfather Trilogy – UHD Blu-ray Review

    It's all here folks! https://www.hometheaterforum.com/community/threads/a-few-words-about-tm-the-godfather-s-50th-anniversary-restoration-in-4k-uhd.375209/ I held off on this but took the bait with that Prime Day price. It'll be nice to have Coda and all the Part III cuts.

    Press Release PHE Press Release: Star Trek: The Motion Picture Restored Director's Edition and Six-Movie Collection (4k UHD)

    I see that the theatrical and SLV will be on the same disc and seamless branching will be used. I hope that means this particular disc will have a true version of the theatrical cut and the problematic "fixes" that were done for last year's 4K release will no longer be present (the shot of the...

    Press Release PHE Press Release: Star Trek: The Motion Picture Restored Director's Edition and Six-Movie Collection (4k UHD)

    Not sure if this is the right place to post this deal, but Amazon has the 4 movie set for $39.99 for Prime Day. Exclusive to Prime members. I think I can live this, maybe sell off the digital codes (HD digital copies I bought years ago already upgraded to 4K on iTunes) , and then pick up V and...

    Press Release PHE Press Release: Star Trek: The Motion Picture Restored Director's Edition and Six-Movie Collection (4k UHD)

    I would go so far as to say it’s a logical way to look at it. I’m in the same boat where I have 1-10 on iTunes and 1-4 already upgraded to 4K last year. I’m going to pass on the box o’junk. I really only want to own TMP:DE and TWOK on 4K Blu, but if the 1-6 set can be had for $60 around BF then...

    PHE Press Release: Star Trek: The Motion Picture: Fully Restored Director's Edition (4k UHD) (Paramount+ Streaming)

    BONG!!! While it's fun seeing Rene Auberjonois in a different role I am not a fan of the Scooby-Doo "It's Colonel West!" reveal. Klingons and Humans conspired together so why wouldn't the assassin be an actual Klingon? The first home video cut was the one that was on the DVD release in 1999. I...

    PHE Press Release: Star Trek: The Motion Picture: Fully Restored Director's Edition (4k UHD) (Paramount+ Streaming)

    It won’t be the cut you saw on VHS if it’s the Director’s Cut that was on the DVD release in 2004.

    International Via Vision Entertainment Announces Premium Blu-ray Label "IMPRINT"

    Would be awesome to get a theatrical cut of The Warriors. The Imprint is just too rich for my blood and the theatrical is streaming on Paramount+.

    Sony introduces 2022 Bravia XR TV lineup

    Are there plans for larger A90K sets this year? Can’t cite a source but I thought the A90J will be carried forward to the 2022 lineup and the A90K is just adding smaller sized WOLEDs to Sony’s lineup.

    Pre-Order Robocop (1987) (2-disc Limited Edition Steelbook) (4k UHD) Available for Preorder

    I went with DiabolikDVD and it arrived a few days prior to 4/12. They also packaged it incredibly well (bubble wrap inside a box), so no smashed corners, dents, etc… In other words, it was in mint condition! This was my first time buying from them and it won’t be my last.

    Yeah, turns out I don’t have premium. Thanks Neil! As a side note, I’m a big fan of your work! I think I’ll hold off on Premium. I have tickets reserved for the Fathom event and the UHD Blu-ray will be a day one purchase.

    PHE Press Release: Star Trek: The Motion Picture: Fully Restored Director's Edition (4k UHD) (Paramount+ Streaming)

    Not sure what's going on here with respect to Dolby Vision and 4K, but Paramount+ is only giving me HD on my 2021 Apple TV 4K. In Video and Audio I set the Format to 4K SDR 59.94Hz, and enabled Frame Rate and Range in the Match Content setting. Other apps like Disney+, Apple TV, and Netflix...

    PHE Press Release: Star Trek: The Motion Picture: Fully Restored Director's Edition (4k UHD) (Paramount+ Streaming)

    Oh man, I really wish TWOK was the theatrical cut. Haven’t seen that on the big screen yet. Fathom showed the Director’s Cut for the 35th anniversary.

    UHD Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ -The Godfather(s) 50th Anniversary Restoration -- in 4k UHD

    Well, Apocalypse Now might still be cropped to 2:1 if the DP had his way, so I’ll take this reality where AN is 2.35:1 and the 4K Godfathers are what they are rather than the other way around. The 2008 Blu-rays are on my shelf and now I can wait for a good sale before I contemplate getting the...

    PHE Press Release: Star Trek: The Motion Picture: Fully Restored Director's Edition (4k UHD) (Paramount+ Streaming)

    I’m still miffed that they did those awful and unnecessary “fixes“ to some effects shots in the 4K theatrical cut when the 4K DE was right around the corner.

    UHD Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ -The Godfather(s) 50th Anniversary Restoration -- in 4k UHD

    Give me someone who hasn't seen The Godfather and without hesitation I'll tell them to see this latest version on the big screen over watching the 2008 Blu-rays at home.

    Well, we know what the future holds for YOU with regards to the Corleone family! ;) But on a more serious note, I definitely get what you are saying and can't argue against that.

    UHD Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ -The Godfather(s) 50th Anniversary Restoration -- in 4k UHD

    I would have said the same about the 2007 restoration at the time, but... here we are. Who knows what the future holds? :) I will say for me this is a textbook case of "ignorance is bliss" because as previously mentioned, seeing it in Dolby Cinema was a fantastic experience, I would not pass up...

    UHD Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ -The Godfather(s) 50th Anniversary Restoration -- in 4k UHD

    You will get the 4K versions. I bought the Bond set and it was the same situation. Individual versions said 4K but the bundle said HD. I have them all in 4K. Also, you can always get a refund from iTunes. I bought the Connery set and then realized the complete set was a way better deal per...

    UHD Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ -The Godfather(s) 50th Anniversary Restoration -- in 4k UHD

    As far as I can tell, the subtitles for the iTunes versions are just generic ones that are white text with a translucent box around them ever since they switched from the 2007 versions to the 2022 versions. I have noticed this on my ATV set-top box, my computer, and my phone.

    Press Release Criterion Press Release: Shaft (1971) (4k UHD) (Blu-ray)

    Maybe it’ll happen as physical media becomes more niche. Seems like the studios pulled back their licensing when DVD became a cash cow. I think steaming is the modern day VHS with UHD BR being laserdisc.
