    Dexter First Season, what is the OAR?

    2.35:1 on Amazon page but I can swear it's just 16:9 (1.78:1) on my viewing. Am I dreaming?

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Bram Stoker's Dracula -- in BD

    I just watched the first 1/3 of this BD disc. All in all I think the quality is amazing. Very film-like. Has all the wonder and all the flaws of film. Film is never a perfect medium even though the one who shot it is the most talented cinematographer in the world. But I think to transfer it as...

    PQ differences: Codec or Mastering related? (was "AVC better than VC-1???")

    So "sharpness to the eyes" is the measurement of good PQ here? Sharpness can be decieving mainly because it can be contradictory to detail. Do you know that the sharper picture tend to provide less detail? I guess different CODEC can be compared in the manner of comparing film stocks. For...

    Is UK R2 Tartan DVD's Sex and Lucia uncut?

    Thank you. That certainly show no violence (or penis) has been cut.

    Is UK R2 Tartan DVD's Sex and Lucia uncut?

    Thank you. This is the information I'm looking for when I started this thread. I still think there's only one version of S&L until I borrowed R1 disc from my friend and it's R-rated version.

    Is UK R2 Tartan DVD's Sex and Lucia uncut?

    Thanks Ali B. I had Tartan R2 disc in my hand right now and can confirm that it's indeed *UNCUT*. The erect penis is/are there. But having not seen this for a long time I almost think the scene where the dog killed little girl Luna is cut. My imagination must play a trick on me 'cause I used to...

    Is UK R2 Tartan DVD's Sex and Lucia uncut?

    Thank you. There's not much information from the sites to confirm. Is there any owners here?

    Is UK R2 Tartan DVD's Sex and Lucia uncut?

    I have a chance to buy this cheap (second handed) but I'm not sure if the version uncut. If it's not, then maybe I'll buy R1 instead. I suppose there's only one version from Tartan in UK.

    Buena Vista Goes All BD-50 for January Blu-ray Slate

    So true. Francis Ford Coppola even told me in person when he edited Godfather that a scene had a few frame damaged but he used it anyway because the take was so good. I think all filmmaker care is emotional impact, not hi-fidelity. He even joked the audience would think damaged frames only...

    The Departed: Feb. 13

    Well, it'll be interesting to see what they come up with because the ending in the IA was of Buddhism teaching & belief. Guess it would never affect westerners the way it affected Buddhists. I'll check out the 2 disc sets.

    "A Nightmare On Elm Street" InfiniFilm DVD coming

    I believe it's a case of too much button at your hand. You're bound to use it eventually. Just saw Warner's Bullitt and the transfer is extraordinary. Warner is the one who know something about original look of filmstocks. Bravo to them!

    "A Nightmare On Elm Street" InfiniFilm DVD coming

    They tint some scenes differnetly and look like contrast level get boosted too much from the screencap. Overall it look like a modernized version. Not sure how much I can trust screencap though so I plan to buy Infinifilm edition also but will get original first 'cause I don't think they'll use...

    Downloads-(HD or otherwise) Will they replace physical media and when?

    If you're thinking about a Hollywood regular movie, it's kind of hard to imagine downloading that..especially when you have a nice HD disc waiting online for your order instead. But when thinking about short fun kind-of-youtube movies..if it's really good and not longer than 20-30 minutes..I...

    "A Nightmare On Elm Street" InfiniFilm DVD coming

    Yes. That's not important right now. For now I just want to see the film itself the way I have seen it before. I will miss director's commentary though. But that, too, can wait.

    "A Nightmare On Elm Street" InfiniFilm DVD coming

    I plan to. Just not hurry to buy the new edition.

    "A Nightmare On Elm Street" InfiniFilm DVD coming

    Since the transfer of the infinifilm's version is new, I guess it will be with us for a while. What I'm afraid of is the old transfer (which Haitkin approved) will never see the light of day again.

    "A Nightmare On Elm Street" InfiniFilm DVD coming

    Jack, What version you're talking about? I've read that NoES's Infinifilm edition has a new modernized color timing. So if the version is truer to the color timing of the film I watched long time ago, I'm gonna order it instead.

    All-Male or All-Female movies?

    I think I should list all the films mentioned and no one counter for easy access. John Boorman's Hell in the Pacific Gus Van Sant's Gerry (these 2 films should be ultimate 'cause I don't think you can find film with only one talent. ) Lord of the Flies? Robert Aldrich's Attack...

    The ONE and ONLY *OFFICIAL* STAR WARS (Original Trilogy) DVD REVIEW THREAD!

    Just finished watching both versions of ANH and ESB and finished reading this thread. What a long day! ANH has reconfirmed Lucas's talent as a filmmaker (and writer) and ESB is a fun to watch again. I'm so happy I have this release since I prefer the picture quality of the original version...

    All-Male or All-Female movies?

    You're right. It's still all-male cast, but good nit-picky. Wonder if we're as strict as that, how many films we will got left?

    All-Male or All-Female movies?
