    Pre-Order Seven (Se7en): What's In The Box Special Edition (4k Combo SteelBook) Deluxe Boxed Set Available for Preorder

    To me, it's annoying that amazon cancels my pre-order from many months ago just because of the studio delay. So now, I have to wait for the next pre-order notification.

    Samsung - UBD-K8500 4K Ultra HD - Anyone have one?

    fyi--this was my first 4k player---just noticed--Creator & Indy5 play 4k but Abyss & Grand Turiismo (4k rental) dont. Message says disc not to spec--wonder if this is a triple layer issue? As well as Old Hardware?? Mistake on my part---did the whole wipe down on both discs and both play...

    Location of King Kong 1933 Original negative, Foreign lavender and M&E tracks

    From 2005 Robert Harris reported: "King Kong was a victim of its own success... The large number of prints... manufactured... probably wore out Kong's negative. The earliest surviving material on Kong is a master positive made from the camera negative in 1942. This print was the backbone Richard...

    Blu-ray Review Universal Classic Monsters: The Essential Collection Blu-ray Review - Recommended

    thank you all for your tips--I used isopropyl alcohol, qtips and elbow grease--got most of it. Discs work in the player. My later 4k purchases, I have removed them from those "monster traps" and residing in clear sleeves inside the accordion. The 4k cardboard trap showed no signs but I will...

    Blu-ray Review Universal Classic Monsters: The Essential Collection Blu-ray Review - Recommended

    hey I just noticed my 2012 purchase of this 8 film set now has a glue buildup on each disc edge due to the "great" packaging. So it's even harder to pull out the discs. Any recommendation for getting the glue of the discs?? I see it in each sleeve of the accordion book. All along the bottom so...

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

    Anyone having playback issue with H2 @4k. The menu page seems to loop and nothing to click on--no clickable items along the bottom like on the accompanying blu. I tried panny 9000 with new firmware and venerable Samsung k8500 and got same results

    I've done some comparisons between the blu and the dvd and the blu has various darker scenes--on the island--I was surprised by this--I have to assume WB is aware of this--and went in that direction. I also did the same procedure on son and MJY---those 2 titles matched exactly in video levels.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ King Kong (2005) -- in Blu-ray

    Hi Mr. Harris, Looking forward to your opinion/ review of the new HDR version. IMO, they changed the look "now" a little too much from I recall in the theater & the home video versions since then. I have no issue with the blacks of the HDR ...just saturation choice.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ La La Land -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray & LaLaVision

    I just saw it for the first time..... in HDR & was very impressed with the image. I thought the HDR really made it stand out. Much more than other HDR titles. What was also nice was all the special features were included on the 4k disc as well. Not just "movie only".

    Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015)

    I have yet to see it in imax but all these presentation reviews make it interesting. Maybe they are using anamorphic lenses to stretch north & south so to display the 1.43 from 1.9 DLP chips. Or maybe some electronic scaling/squeezing. Either way I wonder if softening is a byproduct?

    Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015)

    I've seen it twice in Dolby and I can't imagine a better experience. Granted this was 2d in NYC, but frankly I am tired of wearing sunglasses at the movies. For a movie that I've been waiting for for so long--I wanted dynamic range and great blacks with no "dimness". That and the seats shaking...

    Aspect Ratio Documentation

    Here is the note that comes with the DCP.I would think the any film-outs would follow this plan. * IMPORTANT: This feature is meant to be played in a 1998x1080 FLAT ASPECT RATIO. Set your projector to FLAT for this feature. And follow the framing chart guidelines. The aspect ratio will...

    Aspect Ratio Documentation

    And here attached is an old smpte chart reflecting, IMO, probably those same scan decisions. I was told, when I started out, you are not supposed to see the "barber poles" on the outside. This was all for 4x3 and broadcast safe issues in regards to tv overscan. BTW--Mr. Furmanek--Thank You for...

    Criterion Press Release: It's A Mad Mad Mad Mad World (Dual Format)

    Wonderful Job Criterion! Its so nice & sharp! Another question for Mr. Harris or anyone in the know: What was the other film that is mentioned in the restoration part about the "color solution" for a black & white image? This is in regard to the SD color for an HD picture. thanks again for...

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey -- in Blu-ray & 3D

    Most of the info I've seen online so far from the press says 2k DI. here is a good technical one from the film's editor- http://www.definitionmagazine.com/journal/2013/2/19/winning-the-frame-game.html I would think they have their reasons. and probably 48fps was one of them. Getting the...
