    A Few Words About A few words about...™ The Searchers -- in High Definition

    I used to own the 2-disc remastered LD back in the 90s. The colors were flawless. I’m not sure what happened to the print being used for home video distribution between then and now, but the colors were somehow changed to make everything much more yellow.

    I’d just like to know if the yellow adobe bricks on the BD, are back to being red again in this new presentation

    I think I’ve only seen her in The Best Years Of Our Lives, but she was wonderful in that film

    Recently saw the Narrow Margin, and while I really enjoyed it, you can’t think too deeply about the logic of the movie

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

    If Kino can get their hands on Hatari from Paramount, perhaps they can get Katie Elder too. That one needs a redo just as much as Hatari.

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

    Watching this now. Purchased when it first came out, but somehow never got around to watching it. Beautiful B&W image. As for the film itself, absolutely love it. The Cleggs were probably my favorite band of wrong-doing family members on film. And Ben Johnson, Ward Bond and Harry Carey Jr...

    Blu-ray Review 3 Godfathers Blu-ray Review

    Another excellent review Matt. I will say in response to your one minor quibble, the scene where Wayne comes back from from wagon and relates the story was done on purpose by Ford. John Wayne had never done such a long scripted speech at that point in his career, and Ford wanted to push his...

    Blu-ray Review The Boob & Why Be Good? Blu-ray Review

    Excellent review. Like you, I think my favorite part of The Boob was the dream sequence, with all the Harry’s continuously coming out from different parts of the car

    Loved that film from the first time I watched it. Recently I’ve been putting captions on, as the accents are sometimes too hard to understand.

    Your thoughts on Kino-Lorber Blu-rays

    I’m still holding out hope they can secure Universal right’s to John Wayne’s “The Conqueror”. Widescreen and in stereo, I’d be on cloud nine

    UHD Review Paint Your Wagon UHD/Blu-ray Review

    Haha, I actually like Crow a lot in the filmed version of Les Mis. He is one of the best Javert’s I’ve seen, and I’ve seen the show dozen of times (and I’m going again tomorrow in Schenectady).

    UHD Review Oliver! (Columbia Classics Collection Vol 2) UHD Review

    My biggest issue with the filmed version of Oliver is the inclusion of the director’s daughter’s voice whenever Oliver sings. Completely takes me out of the film

    Blu-ray Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ - The Shootist -- in Blu-ray

    Absolutely wonderful film, which never fails to get me emotionally. John Wayne’s final film could not have been more appropriate. As for Clay O’Brien…while he was cute in The Cowboys, and definitely stole a few scenes, he was not an actor by trade. And unfortunately that come to light in...

    The Brady Bunch 50th Anniversary. Might we finally see a Brady Blu-ray

    Yes, very obvious where the syndication cuts occur on the DVDs, and the 16mm prints were inserted back in…quite jarring, tbh

    Pre-Order Star Trek III: Search for Spock (1984) 40th Anniversary (4k UHD Steelbook) Available for Preorder

    I understand your point about V. When I first saw it in the theaters, I was amazed at how bad it was. But then I got it on LD not long afterwards, and between the surround sound (which the previous movies lacked), and a newfound respect for some of the deeper scenes (revisiting pain from the...

    Pre-Order Star Trek III: Search for Spock (1984) 40th Anniversary (4k UHD Steelbook) Available for Preorder

    Worst movie of the original 6. The new Savak was horrible, the ending was incredibly boring and drawn out, and Nimoy’s direction was not up to professional levels yet. Many will say 5 was the worst, but at least that had more action from start to finish than 3

    SIRIUSXM: Still Lazy After All These Years

    Well stated. The only other thing I could add to your post would be for SirusXM to ditch their DJs. Not only do they interrupt the listening experience, many times they will give you their unsolicited views on world events and politics. And even if you agree with them, no one signs up to...

    Pre-Order Paint Your Wagon (1969) (4k UHD) (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    I saw that particular show, and own the cast album. Absolutely wonderful! Watching the film, you’d have a hard time imagining it was derived from that fabulous 1940’s stage production.
