    Best "show off" soundtracks that are not bombastic.

    Another soundtrack that impressed me was Casper.it had great directionality and complexity beyond what I expected for a film of that type.

    Best "show off" soundtracks that are not bombastic.

    When people show off a sound system they usually choose stuff with explosions and action. Does anyone have any goto movies for showing off soundtracks that are more of a subdued nature. For me, it would be Hugo. From the scenes with the clockwork gears clicking away all around you to the...

    International Bell Book And Candle Spanish Import

    I went and got it. I believe it is a BD-R but it seems the transfer is the same as the TT release based on the reviews I have seen (good overall transfer, somewhat grainy). Even if it is BD-R I would not proclaim it a bootleg. It just may be the way the people the studio farms out the film to...

    International Bell Book And Candle Spanish Import

    I hadn't seen BB&C until today so I hadn't thought of purchasing Twilight Time's limited edition until I saw it and liked it. Now, it is out of print and pricey though but there is the Spanish import...

    24p streaming interference

    Does anyone have any idea what is going on here. I can only describe it as interference that comes and goes. The unit is a Panasonic BDT 500 connected to a Panasonic TV via HDMI The streaming has a selectable 24p output which I enjoy using. But lately the use of 24p more often than not shows...

    New generation blu ray players lacking analog outputs

    Not that I need a new blu ray player yet but I was just browsing and was surprised to find that the newest blu ray players have only HDMI and digital audio out. This is distressing because my current setup utilizes both the HDMI and composite video outs. The HDMI goes into the big TV and the...

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

    I have Pollyanna, The Parent Trap and In Search Of The Castaways to stream in high definition from VUDU. To me, Pollyanna always seemed the weakest of the 3 picture quality wise. I think they utilized the HD transfer used for the old DVD. Parent Trap is definitely a new post DVD release...

    Streaming audio anomalies

    I am recovering from something that is limiting my mobility and therefore my ability to pull out a blu ray/DVD. I want to see. So, I have been streaming more. A movie I have wanted to add to my Vudu library for a bit was The Towering Inferno, even though I have the blu ray. So, I finally did...

    The Hindenburg - What a sad, sad, sad transfer! Any chance for a 35th Anniv. 2010

    I just bought the used DVD on the cheap just so I could use it for the Vudu disc to digital HD version. Probably not the best HD transfer but it is OAR and looks better than anamoprhic DVD (to say nothing of non anamorphic).

    Criterion ready to release IT’S A MAD MAD MAD MAD WORLD

    Regarding Mickey Rooney, if you ever want a surreal experience, listen to the commentary he did on the DVD/Blu ray sets for his Twilight Zone episode. Regarding Marvin Kaplin, he posts on Facebookhttps://www.facebook.com/marvin.kaplan.77?ref=ts&fref=ts

    Good review. I noted how the slash fans were going to have a field day with some scenes in STID.

    Criterion ready to release IT’S A MAD MAD MAD MAD WORLD

    I will be happy if they just make as much formally edited scenes restored to the movie as possible in better quality than he laserdisc release and have the intermission voice overs.

    Criterion ready to release IT’S A MAD MAD MAD MAD WORLD

    I actually added that IMDB quote. I had read about this being done for years and tried to find the split screen. First on pan and scan, then on letterbox. the book I read it in lead me to look at the wrong place: where Jonathan Winters truck hit the tower. But it actually where the water tower...

    THE HONEYMOONERS (Classic 39) will be on Blu-ray on October 15th 2013

    I am sure the price will be more around the $50 something point when release date approaches. That is when they start to adjust to other places sale information. Such was the case with the Star Trek The Next Generation blu ray sets. Big Honeymooners fan, can't wait for these.

    Blu-ray Review Body Double Blu-ray Review

    In my case, I watched it in a Loews theater that was built only 2 years before and had 3 screens carrying Dolby Stereo and one screen carrying 70mm six track Dolby. Body Double played on one of the Dolby Stereo screens. It was at the time I had my stereo CED videodisc player in high school and...

    Criterion ready to release IT’S A MAD MAD MAD MAD WORLD

    Since all of us fans have the blu ray of the more established theatrical release, an as good as can be managed reconstruction of the roadshow version is something we would jump to buy and put alongside it.

    Blu-ray Review Body Double Blu-ray Review

    Although the audio quality is technically great, I am frustrated that it does not duplicate the way I heard things surround wise, seeing it in a theater.Like the alarm bell when the set catches fire, it was in the rear. The music was more solidly in the rear. When Holly is trying to flag down...

    LOST HORIZON 1973 - The Complete Version

    I have to look at the TVGuide again but I think it was all one night. A 3 hr time slot would allow for 30 minutes of commercials if they were showing the roadshow version, which sounds about right. It is possible repeat showings were split up into two nights.

    LOST HORIZON 1973 - The Complete Version

    Got the Lost Horizon blu ray and it looks great! This is one of those movies that has built a reputation of being momumentally bad, so much so that the movie seems to have been kept out of circulation until recently. And when you finally see it, it's come off as more a mediocre movie with some...

    Why the lower prices for Blu ray UK sets VS US?

    When the ALIEN set came out and was kind of pricey for my pocketbook I was looking for bargins and was eventually pointed to the UK set which was signifigantly less and I got it after I was assured it was region free. It worked out fine. I hadn't thought much of it until the same thing came up...

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World -- in Blu-ray

    I am excited in a geek sort of way because I finally spotted something in this movie I read about but never could seem to find. Years ago, I read in an old special effects book that the final collapse of the gas station had to have an optical fix because one of the various people triggering the...
