    Blu-ray Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ - Back to the Beach -- in Blu-ray

    What was 'creepy' about Roy? Unless you're privy to some information no one else is I think another adjective might be more charitable.

    The racism on display is supposed to bother and make the viewer uncomfortable. Obviously it makes its point.

    What racism? This film is clearly anti racist.

    Pre-Order Tina (2021) (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    Not sure.....none of the sites I usually visit have reviewed it. I did re-purchase and the issue was present on the second disc as well. I emailed Warner but never received a response.

    Pre-Order Tina (2021) (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    I'm a huge Tina fan so I purchased the blu ray and was very disappointed with the transfer. The concert footage transfer is particularly egregious..It looks much better on HBO.

    A Few Words About A few words about…™ Lawrence of Arabia - in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    When I posted my comment I was actually going to say 'late '70 or early'71'. I remember the announcement in the NY Times, and purchasing my ticket during the week for a weekend screening. Thanks for researching and clarifying this for us.

    A Few Words About A few words about…™ Lawrence of Arabia - in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    It was, indeed, a brief Roadshow presentation. I saw it as well and agree with you....this cut was incomprehensible.

    A Few Words About A few words about…™ Lawrence of Arabia - in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    This cut played the Rivoli Theater in NYC in late '70. It was shown on a 'reserved seat' basis, though the engagement was short-lived. NYC critics who reviewed this re-release all made mention of the cuts and subsequent shortened running time.

    UHD Review A Few Words About While we wait for a few words about...™ West Side Story (2021) -- in 4k UHD

    Nobody is denying her that right. We are merely responding to how angry and bitter and obsessive her comments are.

    UHD Review A Few Words About While we wait for a few words about...™ West Side Story (2021) -- in 4k UHD

    Rita began to disparage her husband about 15 minutes after he died, and has been dining out on her mistreatment by Marlon Brando for 62 years. She now has begun to opine on Jerome Robbins' internalized homophobia/self loathing, espousing her theory that this is behind his sadistic treatment of...

    Gay-Friendly Blu-rays

    Take my word for it...... in those days both coasts would have been just as outraged as middle America. The East and West coasts were no panacea in those days. In fact, it was Illinois that first decriminalized consensual gay sex between adults in 1960. However, that never stopped the bar raids...

    UHD Review A Few Words About While we wait for a few words about...™ West Side Story (2021) -- in 4k UHD

    There is really no such thing as analogue music any more. A master disc for vinyl is created by imprinting digital files on a lacquer plate with a lathe machine. That master disc is copied onto a stamper which is sent to a pressing plant. It's essentially digital being downgraded to analogue...

    UHD Review A Few Words About While we wait for a few words about...™ West Side Story (2021) -- in 4k UHD

    I agree. I meant that 'WSS's box office (to date) being less than half of 'Cats' insures its status as a colossal financial bomb, not artistic.

    UHD Review A Few Words About While we wait for a few words about...™ West Side Story (2021) -- in 4k UHD

    'WSS' has taken in less than half of 'Cats'. Its status as a colossal bomb is secure.

    In addition to her cultural appropriation and speaking broken English, Moreno's vocals were dubbed as well. Pot, meet kettle.

    West Side Story – Spielberg remake

    With the exception of 'WSS', Moreno's film career can hardly be considered illustrious. 'Spotty' would be a better way to describe it. I don't see her as a candidate for even a faux lifetime achievement win.
