    UHD Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ - Once Upon a Time in the West -- in 4k UHD

    Well, since we appear to be vigorously bearing down on a bottle of Elmer’s glue using a well-worn riding crop… I threw this up on my 65” got real close to it and got that old sinking feeling. I didn’t like what I saw. But then I sat back, emptied a full vacuum cleaner bag in my face to add some...

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

    My Trek movie celebration ritual is: Walk slowly in a circle for five minutes, eat static, look for Spock, save some whales, row, row, row my boat, and dine on ashes.

    Pre-Order Rocky: Ultimate Knockout Collection (1976-2006) (4k UHD) + Rocky V (1990) + Rocky Balboa (2006) (4k UHD SteelBook Combo) Available for Preorder

    Ah yes, I see something (perhaps apocryphal) where Stallone said he’d love to re-edit V (which he did not direct). He supposedly said he would start with tossing out all the music and then overhaul it. Guess I believe too many things I read on the Internet! He redid IV during lockdown, between...

    My God, Matt. What have you done? Amazing artwork. McCoy is not featured prominently though… dammit, Jim. It’s his revenge for all those arguments he lost!

    Deadpool & Wolverine (2024)

    Unless they mean to start off the movie with a cold water faucet running for 5 minutes. Then you'd anxiously hold your bladder for the remaining feature.

    This film includes depictions of guys wearing hats, which may offend certain viewers. Discretion is advised.

    R.I.P Dabney Coleman

    So weird that Dabney Coleman popped into my head not two days ago. Driving to work, I wondered randomly, out of the blue, where he got the name “Dabney” from. What is that even? I think I was free-associating Once Upon a Time in the West with Henry Fonda, father of Jane Fonda. She starred in On...

    UHD Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ - Dune - Part Two -- in 4k UHD

    My Steelbook shipped in a lovely box from Amazon, well-padded, and yet… somehow endured a big-ass ding in it, right in the old worm hole. Gah! I feel like I dropped the Hope Diamond down a pool drain…

    Lord of the Rings: The Hunt for Gollum (2026)

    Well, we do have The Search for Spock, directed by Spock himself, and it actually had quite a lot of Spock in it... albeit in younger forms. So not much of Leonard Nimoy. "It is Doctor Marcus' opinion that this is... That the Genesis effect has in some way regenerated... Captain Spock."...

    I have my copy in hand. I look forward to watching this with the interpretation of Harmonica possibly being a "pseudo-ghost" and see how that hangs.

    Coming soon: LEGO Barad-dûr The accuracy depicted in the photos is astounding, particularly the shot of a fully-grown adult man playing with it. Spot on, I say.

    Lord of the Rings: The Hunt for Gollum (2026)

    I would sooner go for Farmer Giles of Ham than this made-up nonsense not written by Tolkien. At least that story had Chrysophylax, a dragon, and a hero named Ægidus Ahenobarbus Julius Agricola de Hammo. And also a sword called Caudimordax that cannot be sheathed if a dragon is within five miles.

    Ah, yes, the Franklin Mint... remember their Civil War Chess Set? They could make the Slip Cover Chess Set! Steel vs. Slip.

    UHD Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ - Dune - Part Two -- in 4k UHD

    The Morgan Dollar remark sent me further than expected. I actually have one from 1881. When I get this release, I’ll be able to judge for myself how the slipcover compares. Does getting something from Amazon qualify as “circulated” condition, given the risk of shipping damage? Can we get “proof...

    Superman (2025)

    Imagine the Kent's neighbors: "Golly, there goes Jonathan Kent makin' a racket out back again. What the heck is he doin' with that pitchfork and that blanket?! Wha—is he putting dynamite under the clothesline?!"

    He's got nice, grippy soles on them boots too, so he doesn't slip and fall.

    Good job reassuring us all that this Disney film is, in fact, going to have naughty fucking language. Not so good a job reassuring us it will actually be quality entertainment. We'll see.

    M3GAN 2.0 (2025)

    Well, there's nothing for it but to cast Helen Mirren as a glamorous, fierce, highly-controlling CEO of a sex robot corporation that gets unexpectedly conquered by the M3GAN AI, causing sex bots everywhere to awaken... awkwardly. When the uprising hits the headquarters, we see Helen take a fatal...

    UHD Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ - Aliens -- in 4k UHD

    I just checked in to see how one of my favorite HTF threads is doing (the other one being The Abyss). After reading a thoughtful exploration of the legal morality raised by the recent ALIENS Blu-Ray transfer—as compared and contrasted to taking a dump on some geese sculptures—I can assert being...

    Untitled Jesus Film (Martin Scorsese) (2024)

    Spider-Jesus? That could certainly be a different interpretation. "Don't let your spidey senses tingle with worry. You trust in your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man; trust also in me."

    Ah, yes... the infamous "Get the cheese to sickbay!" episode. I may have actually stopped watching Voyager after one, can't quite remember. I did check in sporadically over its run but not much improved, so I sat out almost the entire show until I got the DVD box set... and suffered my way...

    This gives me a great idea… what if I got my girlfriend a “standard edition” engagement ring? You know, without all the superfluous “extras” like diamonds and gold. She’ll love it! “Crom!”

    Paramount+ Star Trek: Discovery - Official Thread

    You cited some excellent counter examples that exemplify stories involving actual drama and stakes, "Khan" in particular because Nimoy's future involvement in Trek was assumed to be nil. When viewed in 1982, this movie stunned because it personally affected Kirk, his crew, and the audience...

    Paramount+ Star Trek: Discovery - Official Thread

    Yes... because it tends to go with an over-reliance on "artificial excitement," as David Gerrold put it in "The World of Star Trek." To wit: it's far easier to show "exciting" things happening when nothing of import is actually happening, or personally involves anyone—except superficially. Lots...
