    Terminator: Dark Fate 11-01-19

    Just watched this film on Blu and really enjoyed it. I didn't know any plot points going in, so enjoyed the nostalgic ride. The Atmos soundtrack gave my system a good workout and I could really feel the bass roll through me a few times.

    Last (Hopefully Not Ever) Film You Saw In A Theater.

    Rise of Skywalker in December. The next one was going to be the Bond movie.

    Bond 25 - "No Time to Die" (2019)

    I'm intrigued by the new song and dark tone. At least I don't hate it like some other recent efforts.

    Bond 25 - "No Time to Die" (2019)

    Thanks for your work on this! This has always been my favorite bond movie. Although Lazenby may have been difficult, I'm not sure it would have the same heart and soul if Connery had been in this one. Several of my favorite films have been saved in editing, Star Wars comes to mind.

    Bond 25 - "No Time to Die" (2019)

    Colbert did a pretty funny parody of what a Billie Eillish Bond song will be.

    Doctor Who

    I don't mind a "Humans are Bad" plot once in awhile, but Orphan 55 was pretty much the worst execution I've seen for that. To really get people to think it needs to be more thoughtful and usually with a twist that you don't see coming, like the original Planet of the Apes. I think they wanted...

    Bond 25 - "No Time to Die" (2019)

    Billie Eilish seems to be the front runner on the rumor mill at the moment. The director follows her on Instagram and she posted a bunch of Bond girl photos. I'm old, so don't know what she sounds like. Hopefully it's better than some of the recent drek.

    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Discussion Thread (SPOILERS!)

    I knew most of the plot points going in so it was interesting to observe the crowd reactions. Here are the ones that stuck out to me: 1. Chewbacca and C3PO fake outs - complete silence, nobody seemed to buy they were gone 2. Rey is a Palpatine - audible gasps and several people shouting "No"...

    Bond 25 - "No Time to Die" (2019)

    The rogue agent trope has been overused for quite a while. It would be nice to go back to a little less convoluted plot. I've found a lot of the new villains to be unmemorable and the stories overly complicated. Although Roger Moore used to be my least favorite Bond, I could use a little more...

    Yes or no: There are already too many streaming services?

    Content owners are fooling themselves that they can continue to get the rich cable money in the streaming age by starting their own services. We have all longed for the ability to pay only for the channels we cared about. There should and will be failures for content that only appeals to a few.

    AT&T in talks to sell DirecTV to Dish

    I've had Direct TV for about 7 years. It has served me pretty well, but the cost has been getting ridicules. I don't want to go back to the cable monopoly either. I'm getting close to just going to streaming and over the air if I can get a reasonably priced fast internet connection.

    Disney+ Streaming Service (Official What? No! Thread)

    It looks like I can wait to subscribe for a few months as I'm not interested in a weekly dole out schedule for the new series.

    Is streaming bad for Hollywood?

    The Oscars have been bogged down with politics for years. It might be fun for a new group to start an awards show that celebrates all film creation in a given year no matter what the platform is.

    Captain Marvel (2019)

    Finally saw the film last night in Imax 2D. I enjoyed it, but found it a little slow and disjointed. I rarely get to excited about origin stories. I liked Brie in the title role and hope her future outings give her the opportunity to be less serious and have more fun. It was good to have so...

    Incredibles 2 (2018)

    Watched the original and sequel over the new year's holiday. As most have said, the original was better. I think it suffered from picking up right where the original left off. It really could have used a time jump for some off screen character growth and a much better villain.

    Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (June 22, 2018)

    Finally got around to renting this movie. I'm pre-disposed to like Dinosaur movies but find myself not caring for this remake of Lost World, which I agree with someone up thread is the worst in the franchise. About 2/3 of the way through I finally figured out the difference between good and...

    So You Think You Can Dance - Season 15

    Another vote that this season was pretty bad. I was starting to get concerned for the judges as they kept saying this was the best top 10 dancers ever on the show. They may have Alzheimer's or have never actually watched previous seasons. Anyway, was happy for the end result, as voting shows...

    What is your final format ?

    For now I'm content with 1080P/3D. I do own a couple of 4k disks that I have nothing to play them on currently. If a reasonably priced 4k projector came out that also did good blu ray 3D too, I'd probably upgrade. I doubt I'd go back and replace movies I currently own. I've bought some of...

    Amazon now directing disc buyers to digital purchases?

    The push for digital has infected video games too. Starting last fall if you searched for a popular game that was coming out soon, the only listing would be for a digital download code. Then one or two days before the release date, a disk version would magically appear. Because Prime offers a...

    I've let all the anger go and accepted that all my 3D purchases will be imports going forward. If they decide to start locking the files I'll just get a region free player like I had back in the DVD days.

    Press Release BVHE Press Release: Star Wars: The Last Jedi (4k UHD) (Blu-ray)

    Just ordered the 3D version from overseas. Looks like that will be my only avenue going forward. I also pre-ordered Thor and Coco 3D versions. I guess the good news is I don't have to go to brick and mortar stores anymore.

    UHD Should I buy 4k disks?

    I've only purchased a couple UHD movies so far, because it was the only way to get the 3D disc. I've been an early adopter of pretty much every format, but for some reason this just doesn't appeal to me that much. Maybe upgrade fatigue has finally taken hold. I think I've also lost some trust...
