    3D Meet Bob Furmanek: HTF Golden Age 3-D Consultant

    I know we're all supposed to look down on anaglyphs (rightly so on TV) but I saw anaglyphs of "It Came from Outer Space" and "Revenge of the Creature" at the cinema and they were pretty damn good. If they were improved for TV and there was no other choice, I'd definitely watch them.

    I've tried it on my 3D TV but it doesn't seem to make much difference to anything.

    My copy of Robot Monster turned up about a week early. Amazon UK seem to pick delivery dates out of a hat. I think people are being a bit hard on Robot Monster. Yes, it's inept and looks like it cost even less than $16,000 but given that most of it is basically a dream, the weird changes of tone...

    3D Meet Bob Furmanek: HTF Golden Age 3-D Consultant

    Many years ago I was working at a Tube station in London and started to chat with a station assistant about Western movies. I'd never met him before and he had an almost impenetrable Jamaican accent, but within minutes we'd agreed that the presence of Stephen McNally in a Western pretty much...

    There's so much chromatic aberration in Amityville 3D that it won't be your arms and legs you have to worry about. At times it looks like an anaglyph.

    I see that Amazon UK is listing "Prison Girls", "I, the Jury" and "The Diamond Wizard" as available or soon to be available. Are any of them region free? As usual Amazon doesn't seem to think it's worth mentioning.

    Is Robot Monster region free? Blu-ray.com says yes but, as usual, Amazon.com remains coy on the matter.

    I'm sorry if this is a dumb question but why don't old (as in 1980s) 3D Polaroid movie glasses work with passive 3D TVs?

    I remember the 1982 Fort Ti 3D broadcast in the UK. It was embarrassingly awful.

    One of the major British pastimes is being bloody-minded; the other is moaning about the weather (and to be honest, just about everything else).:)

    3D Blu-ray Review Treasure of the Four Crowns 3D Blu-ray Review

    What does Kino have against the rest of the world? They never seem to release region-free Blu-Rays. What have we done to upset them? I know region-free players are available but that's not the point. Most contemporary 3D Blu-rays appeat to be region-free so what's the problem with the older movies?

    Mickey Spillane is, as far as I know, the only author to have played his own fictional creation on screen. He was Mike Hammer in the 1964 UK movie version of "The Girl Hunters". Can't wait to see "I, the Jury".

    My mistake. Checking back it was actually £50-87. It was Gun Fury which was about £36. I really shouldn't buy stuff without looking at the exchange rate but it's just so easy to give in to temptation.

    I saw it on its UK release. I asked the manager afterwards why the image was so dark and was told that they'd tried everything they could to brighten it up but they didn't want to risk overheating and damaging their projector lens. Many others had also complained about the murky picture.

    I was about to say that on UK TV broadcasts the colour sections of otherwise black and white movies are often missing, e.g. "Portrait of Jennie" etc. Then it occurred to me that it's so long since they were on TV that I may have been watching on a black and white TV set.:lol::blush:

    My mother had "selective deafness": she couldn't hear me when I was sitting next to her but she could hear a kettle going on at 1,000 yards. The sound on STD isn't helped by Sonequa Martin-Green thinking that whispering is the best way to convey strong emotions. It really isn't.
