    CEDIA 2013: Sony's Entry Level 4K Projector

    Pretty ridiculous that they will release a new 4k projector that can't even display their own 4k media server without shelling out another $2500. The projector is already missing the mark with the announced MSRP. It certainly took it out of my range. Now you can really forget about it when more...

    Why are these thrillers not already on blu-ray?

    While not a 70's thriller, it's one of my favorites nonetheless and deserves a blu-ray release:

    3D Blu-ray Review Frankenweenie 3D Blu-ray Review

    My entire family adored this film in the theater last October so this will be a purchase for us. My question is are there any retailer exclusives? Best Buy...Target?? Anyone know?

    New Bond Film: Skyfall

    Wow. Just wow. Imax presentation was stellar. Anytime I go into a movie with high expectations and those expectations are exceeded, I am blown away. Best Bond ever. No doubt. Incredible bookend sequences. And a perfect ending. Perfect. I am beside myself and can't wait to see it again with...

    PHE Press Release: Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol (Blu-ray)

    So I had to cancel my Amazon order after reading the reviews that have come out. The one disc blu-ray that Amazon (and likely others) is selling only has a couple of the bonus features. Best Buy will be selling an exclusive with all the bonus material contained on a separate disc. In the press...

    USHE Press Release: JAWS (Blu-ray) (Plus restoration details)

    I thought this would be the perfect opportunity for Spielberg to record this first ever commentary of one of his films. Alas, no commentary is listed. That's the only bummer I see with this announcement. Day 1 purchase for me!

    Blu-ray Review The Town: Ultimate Collector's Edition Blu-ray Review

    FYI: Not sure if this is common knowledge but Best Buy has an exclusive of The Town with extended and alternate ending version along with the photo book for $25. You get everything in the collectors edition except the tattoos, prop reprints and the poster. The new documentary is included. So...

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ The French Connection -- in Blu-ray

    Just got back from Best Buy...picked up the new French Connection release along with Wall Street, another new release with supposedly a new transfer. $15 each. Both have a slipcover indicating a "filmmakers signature series".

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ The French Connection -- in Blu-ray

    Very interesting. I'm trying to recall without reading through this entire thread, didn't Friedkin personally oversee the previous French Connection blu-ray release? And didn't he boast that it was the way he wanted? Heck, there was a featurette on the color timing, wasn't there? My memory is...

    Interview HTF Exclusive Interview with Footloose Director Craig Brewer

    Awesome, thanks for the interview. Always nice to see the filmmakers give a little insight into their thoughts and how they went about approaching the film. This is why HTF is the best. Have it coming from Amazon on Tuesday. :D

    Zodiac on Blu Ray. Single and Double question.

    You WANT the US version released by Paramount. It is far superior to the WB UK release. First, the UK is standard dolby digital only, not TrueHD. Second, Paramount used the VC-1 codec at higher bitrate so PQ subjectively better. Lastly, the documentary is in SD on the WB disc whereas it's in HD...

    Blu-Ray boosts home entertainment. Are you buying Blu-Ray's or renting?

    I typically buy but I do rent a few titles here and there from Netflix. Those have lessened over the last year or so since they adopted that silly 28 day delay for new release rentals. (now 56 days for WB!) Now unless it's a release I have to have on release date, I usually wait unless the price...

    Blu-ray and Apple

    I've finally gotten around to purchasing a blu-ray burner for my mac Toast 11 the only burning software option that's compatible? I've read mixed reviews so I'd like to go with another option but can't seem to find any.

    Interview HTF Exclusive Interview with Academy Award Winning Composer Michael Giacchino

    I agree Travis. Giacchino is my favorite composer working today and much like how a particular actor or director may drive someone to go see a film, I will go see a Michael Giacchino scored film no matter what its about or who is in it. He's that good.

    Video: Sony Press Event: Sony Introduces new ES receivers and first consumer 4K projector

    Thanks for the video although having to suffer through that Sony rep was pretty painful..... :P

    Hmmm, I thought I read that the 95 will have the lens memory feature that the Panasonic currently employs but I don't see mention of that feature here in this press release for the 1000 4k projector. I wonder if any of you Cedia folk can check on this feature.

    Official Lion OS X Discussion and Troubleshooting Thread

    I'm not quite sure what the fix is here but ever since I updated to Lion, I can't play a single video. No youtube, no MLB, nothing. Videos work perfectly fine in Chrome. I checked my security settings in preferences and everything is checked to enable plug-ins and such. Any suggestions?

    WHV Announcement: Planet Earth 6-Disc Limited Collector's Edition (Blu-ray)

    Definite buy to replace my HD DVD. I am a sucker for well produced, well narrated nature series and this one is my favorite. However, I just read that this release will have the standard DD soundtrack like the original release. Why not go the distance and include lossless audio???

    The 2011 MBP refresh / buyers and owner's thread

    My 256 SSD in my new MBP is lightening fast. I can't believe it. I tested it a couple days ago by opening all dock apps at the same time. Within a second, everything just popped open. I could never do that on my old std macbook.

    Well, went ahead and ordered. Lower 15 inch / 256GB SSD / Hi res screen I did not see any BTO message. Wasn't sure if I would or not. Said delivery was between 2/28 - 3/4

    The 2011 MBP refresh / buyers and owner's thread

    So I'm pricing out a 15" and can't decide whether to go with the stock Apple SSD or get one after the fact and install myself. Price-wise, it seems fair. $450-$540 for a 256gb depending on if I get the lower 15 or higher 15. I'm seeing prices around that using froogle. Plus, I get the...

    The 2011 MBP refresh / buyers and owner's thread

    I'm most likely buying one of these new 13 inchers but I want SSD and better resolution that what was leaked. Best place to get one asap at launch? The retail store? Apple online store? MacMall?
