    PSYCHO UNCUT - exactly what is different?

    If you haven't witnessed the phenomenon yourself, it would have been better to say "Someone has mentioned to me that ..." The way you posted your original message, it reads as if you *personally* have seen the alleged artifacts. Seeing that post, which gives absolutely no details of the extent...

    UHD Review Cujo – UHD Blu-ray Review

    I have not seen this film since its theatrical release, but would love to revisit it. Very fine film. Although the ending varies drastically from the book (I'm giving no details, to avoid spoilers) it absolutely works for telling this story as a movie.

    UHD Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ - The Man Who Knew Too Much (1956) -- in 4k UHD

    I don't remember Day singing the song again after that scene, although I admit I haven't watched the movie for quite a while. Wasn't it her final, not penultimate, performance of the song in the movie? "Ribald"?

    UHD Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ - Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny -- in 4k UHD

    This discussion about Indy being irrelevant to the plots of the films is, to me, ridiculous. It's like saying that Jack and Rose are irrelevant to the plot of Titanic because the boat would have sunk without them anyway.

    A few words about...™ - A Haunting in Venice -- in Blu-ray

    I didn't care for Branagh's Orient Express, but I did enjoy Death on the Nile (even though it lacked the feel of an Agatha Christie story). I'm sure someday I will watch A Haunting in Venice, but I was extremely put off by the trailer. It seemed to be entirely unrelated to the source material...

    A Few Words About A few words about…™ The Alfred Hitchcock Classics Collection - in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    Actually the film contains--and was designed to contain--a number of standard (change of camera angle) cuts, and these occur at projection reel changes. The hidden cuts occur at the midpoint of each of the projection reels.

    Press Release WHV Press Release: The Exorcist 50th Anniversary Edition (4k UHD Combo) (Blu-ray)

    This sounds like it's addressed to very casual fans of the film or newbies, since the "surprising reveal" will be no surprise to big fans of the movie, it being common knowledge for essentially half a century. (And anyone who doesn't already know may very likely respond with "Who???") Unless...

    Pre-Order Hardcore (1979) Special Edition (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    Definitely a rarity. Where else can you see George C. Scott explaining the five points of Calvinism to a prostitute? :) A fine film that I am looking forward to seeing again.

    I saw this and Maurice around the same time and to me they are very similar in setting and tone. They are both wonderful movies, and I am very excited to see this is getting a BD release.

    Pre-Order The Way We Were (1973) (4k UHD) Available for Preorder

    Film is a collaborative medium. There are writers, producers, directors, editors, etc. etc. You say it's not Streisand's film to re-edit; by the same token, it very well could not be Pollack's film to re-edit either (were he alive). It all depends on who is the actual copyright owner of the film...

    You have to be pretty skilled with fast-forwarding to get "past the boobs" because it really is a blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment.

    What actually killed 3D in the silver age 1979- 85

    Ah, yes! Dr. Tongue's Evil House of Pancakes! "Would you like some ... PANCAKES?" "Would you like some ... SYRUP?" There's also Dr. Tongue's 3D House of Stewardesses... I loved Monster Chiller Horror Theater. Especially Whispers of the Wolf! :biggrin:

    What actually killed 3D in the silver age 1979- 85

    Totally agree. Avatar and Hugo are for me examples of films that use 3D as a means to enhance the storytelling. I don't remember any "gimmicky" uses of 3D in either film. What I remember is a feeling of being immersed in the world in which the story is taking place.

    Press Release Criterion Press Release: Romeo and Juliet (1968) (Blu-ray)

    What's with that cover design?!? I do NOT like it, so this is a hard pass. NOT!!! I've been waiting forever for this to come out on Blu, and that it's coming from Criterion is a bonus. It could have an all-white cover with black stencil lettering and I'd still buy it--the movie is what counts...

    I'm trying to figure out what about the 4K of Some Like It Hot makes it "pluperfect".

    I've seen many films in theaters projected from Blu-rays, and they generally are excellent, virtually indistinguishable from DCP or film.

    I highly recommend all three of these films. Stephen Cone is an AMAZING filmmaker. I especially love The Wise Kids, the most authentic and honest portrayal of the Christian world in the dramatic cinema form that I have ever seen.

    Pre-Order Far From Heaven (2002) (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    Far from muddying the plot, the addition of homosexuality and racial bigotry actually deepened and enriched it, in my opinion. A remake of the story with only the age and class differences would not have played as well for modern audiences.

    Is it possible to reproduce the original look of Eyes Wide Shut on Blu?

    "Admittedly bad"? Admitted by whom? Perhaps if judging by today's standards one could consider them poor, but the optical effects in The Birds were state of the art in 1963. The sodium vapor ("yellow screen") process was used for some effects shots because it minimized or eliminated the fringing...
