    Blu-ray Review Godspell Blu ray Review

    I, of course, have not yet received my pre-ordered copy of Godspell yet, but I can only hope that your assessment of it's video and audio is as incredibly WRONG as your thoughts on the Production. I have rarely read a review of a movie that had as many comments that were just flat-out untrue...

    Giving Thanks for Holy Grails

    Ragtime on blu-ray was always at the top of my wish list (except for, maybe, The Abyss) and it was the French who provided it for me - first the Statue of Liberty and now this. It is a gorgeous package and the picture and sound is everything you could ask for in a blu-ray. Now, if they can...

    The Shining on blu-ray: Revisiting the Overlook Hotel

    There is no alternate or additional material in the "European Cut" or, what was endorsed by Kubrick as, the "official version". But, this brings up something that has always bugged me. I have both cuts on blu-ray, and the opening and closing credits on the truncated version includes the names...

    Press Release HTF EXCLUSIVE! Twilight Time March 2019 Release Announcements

    Uh, unless it's a joke (which I would never rule out) its "THE River's Edge" (the film being released on TT), not "River's Edge" (the film depicted in the picture that heads up this thread).

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    If intentionally mistaking Abba for Sha Na Na is truly RAHs idea of "dry humor" then, as much as I respect his opinions on which Blu-rays have the best video and audio quality, I don't think I'd seek his opinion on who or what is funny.

    UHD Review The Quick and the Dead UHD Review

    "as this is possibly the best of his movies during his post Evil Dead and pre Spider-Man period." I take issue with that statement, as "A Simple Plan" is, I believe, easily the best of his movies during that period (or, probably, any period) of Raimi's career.

    Eunice Gayson: RIP

    There appears to be a discrepancy in the article, which states "The actor was born in Surrey in 1931". If that statement is true she wasn't 90 when she died.

    Clint Walker dead at 90!

    I guess Mr. Walker was known primarily for his TV work, but to me he'll always be "Posey", one hell of a name for a guy like him (to paraphrase Lee Marvin in "The Dirty Dozen".

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Hell or High Water -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    I'm a bit surprised that this has yet to be mentioned on this forum, but the disc, and the disc case, both state that Hell or High Water 4K has Dolby Atmos audio, and THAT was the main reason for me to upgrade from the blu-ray. The fact that there is NO Dolby Atmos is certainly a good reason to...

    HTF EXCLUSIVE! Twilight Time April 2018 Release Announcements

    Here's hoping Auto Focus is the unrated version, with the video on the TV WITHOUT the blurring, which was required in order for it to get an "R" rating. Any word on that?

    A Few Words About A few words about…™ Auntie Mame — in Blu-ray

    I was born and raised in Philadelphia and, as a movie lover, some of my favorite memories were going downtown to see a film (in those days that was about the only way you could see a first-run movie) at one of the many movie palaces (The Boyd Theater, The Fox Theater, etc.) Just for the sake of...

    Press Release HTF EXCLUSIVE! Twilight Time January 2018 Release Announcements

    i agree that it is indeed a terrific commentary. The one thing that has always stuck out in my mind about that commentary is the slight but apparent annoyance displayed by Cannon and Gould when the subject of their ex-spouses come up. Dyan Cannon at one point mentions Barbra Streisand to...

    One, Two, Three (1961) (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    I understand that each of those 4 other nominees may have fans but, c'mon, I can't believe that there are good, let alone great, arguments that "The Alamo" should have won Best Picture. THAT is a stretch. And I'd give odds of 100-1 that there are more than a handful of people that have even...

    One, Two, Three (1961) (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    True, although I think it does say something that, 57 years later, The Apartment is still considered (by a great many) to be a classic (e.g., #80 on the latest AFI Top 100), and Elmer Gantry has pretty much faded into obscurity.

    And, of course, you're quite entitled to that opinion, but I do believe you'd be hard pressed to find a whole lot of support for that opinion.

    Is that so? Please, tell me which of these landmark classics that were also nominated for Best Picture in 1960 was more worthy of the award: The Alamo Sons and Lovers The Sundowners Elmer Gantry The Apartment is a great film and well deserving of the Oscar for Best Picture of 1960, but even...

    UHD Review Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk UHD & 3D Blu-ray Review

    I purchased Billy Lynn solely on the recommendation of Robert Harris. I knew from reviews that it wasn't going to be a very good movie (or, possibly, it was going to be a bad movie - which it was) but, based on Mr. Harris' review of the technical aspects of the release, I was more than willing...

    Article: Why DVDs and Blu-rays remain essential in the age of streaming

    For my part, streaming has 2, and only 2, advantages over physical media: 1. The ability to view my movies on several televisions throughout my home without having to insert a disc in a player that is not connected anyway. About 150 of my over 1000 movies on disc are available to me through...
