    Blu-ray Review On Her Majesty's Secret Service Steelbook Blu-ray Review

    A few years ago, Steven Soderbergh posted his thoughts on the movie. I rather agree. http://extension765.com/sdr/2-most-irrelevant-no-1

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

    Saw a 70mm blow up of Hoffa on its release in late 1992. As is the case with 70mm blow ups, fantastic audio. Another cool thing (back then) was that the previews were also 70mm blow ups as well. And guess what also had fantastic sound? The preview for Body of Evidence. So that's my lasting...

    Well that's too bad. I've always wanted to see how good this movie could look if done right. The wait continues. -R

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

    RAH, Based on the screen shots (and yes, I know that it can be foolish to draw conclusions from screen shots, but it's all I have) on DVDBeaver, it appears that the transfer was done from a composite element rather than a WB-style ultra-rez treatment of the OCN. Am I correct? -R

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

    Dirty Dancing was set in the Catskills, but filmed at a small resort called Mountain Lake just outside of Blacksburg, Virginia. Never stayed there, but I did have brunch there once. A few pictures documenting the filming hang in the lobby. -Reagan

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Don Juan DeMarco -- in Blu-ray

    You know who hated this movie? Roger Ebert. He felt that Brando phoned it in (acting-wise), and the director couldn't tell the difference. I think Rog missed the point. Brando looked to me like he was having a blast working on the film - particularly working with Johnny Depp. It seems to me to...

    Interview Disney’s Restoration of Dumbo and Efforts to Preserve Their Film Library

    That's what they've been doing since the 2004 restoration of Bambi. Only they use an alternate version of the the Ultra-rez process. The Disney version aligns negatives on some 80 locations in the frame. -R

    Ernest Rister would be rolling over in his grave if he read this. If he was actually in a grave, which he is not. But he does post over at some blu ray forum type place. Can't remember the name. -R

    Pinocchio Blu Ray replacement disc for missing lines of dialogue?

    Ordered my copy from Amazon last week. Arrived on Saturday. Was relieved to see that it is the corrected version. So that's all well and good. On the downside, it just hit me that I spent $30 to fix two lines of dialogue. -R

    Pinocchio Blu Ray replacement disc for missing lines of dialogue?

    What about the color on Pinocchio during his "no strings on me" part? Does it stay the same now? If I recall correctly, the yellow clothes on him turned white when the spotlight was on him. -R

    Pinocchio Blu Ray replacement disc for missing lines of dialogue?

    Yup, we'll have to rebuy it in six years when it is re-released (assuming blu ray is still around then) in a new and improved version - for which the only improvements will be these fixes. -R

    2010: The Year They Finally Got Blu-ray Right

    I really can't argue with anything posted here (other than it's been a great year for Warners - there are so many of their BDs I want to buy that I can't swing them all). Before I read this thread, I would have given the nod to Disney (due to the consistent high quality any movie outside of...

    Something occured to me when I read your review on this yesterday (great review, by the way). Wouldn't it be rather easy to digitally correct the anamorphic mumps? I doubt anyone would want to do it, but it might be fun to see the results. I also recall the Robert Mitchum/Marilyn Monroe film...

    A one frame difference is huge. If you have an adjustment to delay the audio on your system, play around with it and see for yourself. -R

    Thanks for all of the reports. I checked it on my other system and there were no problems. So that's good news. The bad news is (for me) is: what's wrong with my main system? -R

    My copy arrived yesterday. Picture quality was as good as I expected, but there's a real problem with the sync of the audio and video. The audio is early by almost a full frame (7/10 of a frame, to be specific). I'll check this out on some of my other equipment tonight, but it was a real problem...

    Poor quality Blu Ray transfer of "Thunderball"

    Well, Ziggy, I must admit you've got something there. There are errors on the Blu-rays that weren't on the UE DVDs and shouldn't be there. As to how this occured, my guess is that the real answer is a great deal more complicated that you've surmised.   -R

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ The Twilight Zone: Season One -- in Blu-ray

    Trevor, one thing to consider in your decision is that the fourth season is so bad (even Rod felt this way, see the Zicree book for a quote), that there's not much of a reason to watch it more than once. So you'd really only be buying four seasons of TZ on blu at $60 a pop.   Just something...

    Blu-ray Review HTF BLU-RAY REVIEW: Stagecoach

    Thanks Brandon, As my copy is a netflix rental, I didn't have the booklet. I understand their explanation, and am still amazed at how many scratches were not removed. Nevertheless, I trust their statement that "In cases where damage was not fixable without leaving traces of our restoration...

    Blu-ray Review HTF BLU-RAY REVIEW: Stagecoach

    I'm happy with this BD release but am curious as to why the scratches weren't removed. I thought scractch removal was old hat in the digital age. Am I wrong on this? -R

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

    RAH, Thanks for the review. One trend I see in substandard Blu-ray discs is the use of a ten year old HD master. One thing that should be clear by now is that no amount of digital tweaking can make an old HD master look up to par for Blu-ray. Either perform a new transfer to generate a new...
