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

    This conversation is also assuming a perfect scenario. There are so many links in the streaming chain that can affect bitrate and AV quality - ISP throughput, ISP throttling, in-home network speed, streaming device, device setup, time of day, etc., etc. What one viewer sees and hears may not be...

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

    I've watched both the 4K iTunes stream and the 4K disc. While the disc definitely looks better than the stream, I'm still not a fan of what Cameron and his team have done here. It looks too digital, too squeaky-clean IMO. Will I keep the disc? Certainly, but I find the sheen of major...

    Please re-read the post of yours that I replied to - Post #301. In it, you quote Dave, but nowhere in that quote did he mention seeing the Special Edition/Director's Cut in 70mm. He said ALIENS. If you're talking about a different post of Dave's, perhaps you should have quoted that one instead...

    Not in the post I responded to he didn't. The post from Dave quoted in the post I replied to (#301) did NOT mention the "Directors Cut." At all. He specifically said "I have seen a 70mm print of Aliens at Fox Studio back in 2016" in that quote and that was it.

    Dave stated that he saw a 70mm print of Aliens, and unless I missed it, he doesn't mention that it was the SE anywhere in his post.

    Well, Lucas modified the very structure of his Star Wars films by adding new effects, cutting out scenes, adding new scenes, and changing dialogue. And didn't Freidkin remove an offensive line of dialogue from TFC in addition to changing the color timing? I'm not defending what Cameron's done to...

    Or, as in my case, watching the 4K streaming version of Aliens, which didn't look very good at all to me. I'm hoping I have a better opinion of the disc release.

    Easily done, although I don't believe the title is actually deleted. The listing for it just gets removed. This is via the macOS TV app:

    I just got a shipping confirmation from Target estimating a 3/18 delivery. Still nothing but crickets from Amazon on both this title and The Abyss, so I canceled my orders there.
