    Blu-ray Review Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines Blu-ray Review

    It is def there. At least 2 other disk owners have spotted it. It is at the party, just as the character walks past/behind the wooden column.

    It's there, I have confirmed it with other viewers (via their own disks).

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ The Great Escape -- in Blu-ray

    What will this look like on a 100 inch 16x9 screen?

    Blu-ray Review Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines Blu-ray Review

    I finally watched this. It seems a bit dark to me. I particularly noticed that the whites were quite murky. Did anybody else observe the bad video glitch at 1.26.27 on their disk? The image breaks up for a second.

    Blu-ray Review Nicholas and Alexandra Blu-ray Review

    I watched this on my 100 inch screen and was underwhealmed by the video presentation. It put me in mind of the presentation of El Cid that got widely bashed. It is better than El Cid, but stlll lacked visual depth and vibrancy - probably on a related note I noticed a distinct lack of film...

    Blu-ray Review Lost Horizon (1973) Blu-ray Review

    Hoping someone can educate me on the PQ aspects of the disk... I watched it at 100 inches and observed that the actors faces were nicely detailed (not super detailed, but quite nice), but in the same shots that the faces were nicely detailed their clothes would often look noticeably softer in...

    Warner Archive Discussion Thread (FEEDBACK)

    Well Twilight Time would be no help as they do not do any sort of restoration or film scanning themselves.

    Warner Archive Discussion Thread (FEEDBACK)

    Warner Archives - the older bland covers that sucked When I started buying Warner Archive DVD's they were just doing the really cheapo bland covers (not the beautiful ones they offer now). Is there any way to get the newer nice covers for the older titles I have?

    Rescue From Gilligan's Island Dvd Question

    There are no releases of these at all. I have copies of these which are just downloaded TV rips (and are also sold on ioffer etc). It seems the only available versions of "Castaways" are missing about 20-25 minutes of footage (runtime just 70 minutes). Clearly cut in length by the TV...

    "Hawkins" The Complete TV Movie Collection (1973) starring James Stewart

    It is a wonderful show - I had it on DVD-r copied from VHS. Strother Martin appears in 5 episodes (out of the total 8) and him and Jimmy Stewart make a great team. Stewart won the Golden Globe for his performance.

    Rescue From Gilligan's Island Dvd Question

    Should just add that the Aus DVD release by Flashback Entertainment is awful PQ and AQ.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Night of the Living Dead (1990) -- in Blu-ray

    Yeah but nobody with any credibility has said the BD is how Savini originally wanted it.

    What is odd about it? He clearly felt that the DVD looked fine with no errors.

    New Adventures of Gilligan

    Sadly nothing seems to have been released yet... wonder what went wrong?

    Is Criterion working on a blu-ray of Heaven's Gate?

    Thanks for the history, I haven't seen Heaven's Gate, nearly bought the full length version (released in Aus) on DVD a few years back but put it off and decided to hold out for a HD presentation. I had no idea how far they went.. if these reports are accurate then Cimino is even crazier than I...

    Is Criterion working on a blu-ray of Heaven's Gate?

    I hate animal cruelty. But if it happened in a film made at a time before the laws were changed, and understanding I can't go back and stop it, I will still watch the film - westerns for example.

    Is Criterion working on a blu-ray of Heaven's Gate?

    Correct me if I am wrong, but I thought UA mostly set fairly small budgets, which had to be respected. So not sure why they would have been seen as restricting freedom within this already understood framework.

    A Few Words About While we wait for A few words about...™ Lawrence of Arabia -- in 4k/UHD Blu-ray

    This really impresses me, Mr Crisp is really worthy of great praise!

    Twilight Time Announces Nov/Dec 2012 Releases

    Unlikely. But we can hope - as long as we can deal with the disappointment if/when our hopes are dashed.

    Yes, this is one of the GOOD things to come out of the TT deal.

    It is common practice for studios to put out differing edition in different countries. It is also wise to wait for specs before buying...

    A Few Words About While we wait for A few words about...™ Lawrence of Arabia -- in 4k/UHD Blu-ray

    Whoever ordered them with virtually no notice to close up shop is the real culprit. A true villian to this classic film.

    A Few Words About While we wait for A few words about...™ Lawrence of Arabia -- in 4k/UHD Blu-ray

    I think it would have been fantastic to have an entire featurette on the whole issue of the balcony scene, with RAH telling the story, and other related people included with their view points as well.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Smokey and the Bandit -- in Blu-ray

    Should be mentioned that this is a significantly tampered with audio track, with different sound effects (such as engine sounds and other various changes).

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ High Noon -- in Blu-ray

    Is there any chance this will be released in a non USA territory, with the previously produced extra features intact?

    A Few Words About While we wait for A few words about...™ Lawrence of Arabia -- in 4k/UHD Blu-ray

    I am just happy that we have the balcony scene as a deleted extra - no doubt in HD. But I am a little confused... RAH states that he knows David Lean wanted it in the film but was not happy with the quality at the time he viewed it. He states that it was then taken off for further work with...
