    A Sneak Peek at Zulu and Khartoum

    I have ordered the new Blu Ray, and I am looking forward to hearing the improved stereo soundtrack. The photo attached, I would suggest, displays the correct red, which is very inconsistent on the UK Blu Ray. For example take a look at the 21.55 and then compare to 32.14. Thanks David

    WHV Announcement: Robin Hood Prince of Thieves and True Romance (Blu-ray)

    I used to really like "True Romance" in the laserdisc days,but its not one I will purchase on Blu-Ray.The only scene that sticks with me is the classic one with Dennis Hopper and Christopher Walkin. With the mention of "Dances with Wolves",I have the German edition which is the director's cut...

    The good news , this is being screened as I type this on channel 4 hd in the uk,the bad news , is that after the opening credits ,they have changed the aspect ratio from 2:35:1/2:20:1 aprox to 1:85:1,makes the split screening very tight. Apart from that,the picture looks great.

    ZULU - On Bluray ( UK )

    1.I would be interested to know how you might intend to view this movie in the future, if you felt that 20 mins of the Blu-Ray version was enough ? I know I need a copy at the ready,for when the occasion occurs. 2. Have you been able in the past to catch the film in a cinema in either 35mm or...

    ZULU - On Bluray ( UK )

    I don't know how,but it does not represent what I'm seeing on my screen. That's the problem with screen grabs,they can give indications on aspect ratio,and an aprox idea of the step up from dvd to hd, but not much else. Rather appropriate to discuss Zulu on Remember Sunday,which is why the disc...

    ZULU - On Bluray ( UK )

    I agree with the comment about the make-up with this film.The new Blu-Ray reveals the over use of make-up,which can make the actor's skin tone's look slightly odd.For instance you can now see, really clearly Michael Caine's light blue eye liner! It appears that the leads had more make up applied...
