    Come on Sony! Give us a blu-ray of Anzio!

    The concern with movies on Blu-ray from France is when the English audio track is selected the French subtitles appear on the screen with NO shut-off. If you own a 4K player, Oppo, Sony, LG or Panasonic you can use the subtitle shift feature to move the subtitles off the screen. The French...

    Blu-ray Review Come and See – Criterion Blu-ray Review

    Excellent movie telling in detail how WW II effected the people who lived through that era. Like The Painted Bird, In Darkness, Counterfeiters, The Black Book, Innocents, Frantz and many others movies showing the horror of war not individual battles. Very happy to see Criterion release this...

    RETREADS YOUR OPINION

    I don't know what other members think, I really have no real interest for a retread of Event Horizon or Escape From NY or upgrades to 4K. I want the good stuff on Blu-ray that is missing in action, The Alamo, The Abyss, True Lies, Raintree County, At Play in the Fields of the Lord, Mountains of...

    RAINTREE COUNTY on Blu?

    Thank you I saw that in the Spectrum guide but after opening the DVD I recorded years ago I saw no benefit of re-recording. The DVD was recorded in 4 x 3 so it appears on the TV in window boxing. With the OPPO 103 remote you can change the format to cscan which opens up the picture similar to...

    RAINTREE COUNTY on Blu?

    I can remember sometime ago recording Raintree County on DVD when it was playing on one of the movie channels in HD. I am going to watch it this week to see how good the recording is but I would really love this movie on Blu-ray.

    Gone With the Wind physical copies are now sold out everywhere... (Thanks to HBO Max)

    Thank you for correcting my mistake it has been a very long time since I watched Giant and I do need to view the movie again. You are correct the discrimination was directed to people of Mexican descent , not Native American Indians as in Hombre, Cheyenne Autumn and Dances with Wolves.

    Gone With the Wind physical copies are now sold out everywhere... (Thanks to HBO Max)

    I will have to watch Giant again even though she was from Mexico I thought she was Aztec. It really makes no difference discrimination is discrimination and both movies discriminate with extreme prejudice.

    Gone With the Wind physical copies are now sold out everywhere... (Thanks to HBO Max)

    I wonder of Giant and Hombre will also be pulled? Both movies are very discriminating against Native American Indians.

    Amazon and pre orders

    The title was ordered from Amazon.uk not a third party seller. I recently tried to pre-order "True Lies" in Bluray from Amazon Spain and again was advised this title does not ship to the USA. I previously received a message on the Amazon.uk site that many titles were now eligible to ship to my...

    Amazon and pre orders

    Unfortunately, not all Blurays I tried ordering True History of Kelly Gang and received their standard message "this title does not ship to USA". Not sure how they are determining which titles are available for shipment to USA?

    Amazon and pre orders

    That is true and disappointing most if not all Amazon International sites are now not shipping to USA. Independent sellers will ship to USA so if you are looking for a specific title try Ebay or Amazon.USA.

    Amazon and pre orders

    Shipping is slower and that maybe a result of third party sellers not so much the surge in on line buying caused by the pandemic. I purchased a Region-Free Panasonic UB 420 from Bombay Electronics which was shipped by Amazon. The unit will arrive 11 days after purchase. I purchased the all...

    SUBTITLE SHIFT on Bluray players

    Many Bluray players include a feature called "Subtitle Shift" that allows you to move the subtitles up or down. This is a handy feature enabling you to place the subtitles where you prefer them or in some cases move them off the screen. Some international Bluray disc are coded so when you...

    International The Turin Horse / Satantango

    The Turin Horse and Satantango are two every different movies directed by Bella Tarr. The movies are shot in Black and White with very long scenes and little dialog, if any. The Turin Horse like Satantango is a simple story about very poor people living in difficult times. The homes they live in...

    Press Release Criterion Press Release: Roma (Blu-ray)

    I do agree with what you are saying that Netflix business model is based on retaining and gaining customers. Netflix has shown NO interest in making revenue from selling DVD/Blu ray to the general public. HBO, Showtime, Starz and others have proven releasing movies/series on DVD/Blu-Ray is a...

    International MOUNTAINS OF THE MOON (1990) From Spain -- A Quick Look

    I received my copy today and I am playing the Bluray on a Panasonic UB 420 Region A player. The Bluray is "Region Free" and the UB 420 does a nice job displaying the video which is a big improvement over the letterbox DVD. As reported the Spanish subtitles cannot be turned off. The UB 420...

    International MOUNTAINS OF THE MOON (1990) From Spain -- A Quick Look

    No you can't nix the subtitles you can only move then up or down which is a necessary feature with front projectors. For me it is very useful because I prefer the subtitles at the very bottom of the screen.

    International MOUNTAINS OF THE MOON (1990) From Spain -- A Quick Look

    Moving the subtitles is just that you are not moving the picture at all. The picture remains steady no movement at all as you move the subtitles off the screen. I have a few BluRay titles I move the subtitles off the screen, The Mechanic, Barabbas, MacKennas Gold which are international releases

    International MOUNTAINS OF THE MOON (1990) From Spain -- A Quick Look

    I own Blu-Ray players manufactured by Oppo and LG that include the feature "subtitle shift" which allows you to move the subtitles up or down. In most cases subtitle shift will allow you to move the subtitles off the screen. The subtitles are still playing you just don't see them. Great movie I...
