    Kino-Lorber Insider Announcement Thread (Read Guidelines Post #3)

    When I was 16, in my first job at a movie theater, I was tearing tickets one day and a little girl comes up and hands me two tickets. Her mother was behind her, and I said "These tickets are for Sudden Death, is that the movie you want to see?" She says yes, it's fine. After telling her it was R...

    Home cinema with fabulous soundtracks

    I don't have a problem with them including movies like American Graffiti or Trainspotting, it's a list of soundtracks, not scores. But I feel Easy Rider should have been included. Only one Max Steiner, and it's not Gone with the Wind or Casablanca Three from Elmer Bernstein, but no Leonard, On...

    What's left, unreleased on 4k, that you would pay $50 to own on day one?

    For me to shell out $50 and not wait for a price drop, it would have to be a very limited run with no guarantee of a reprint. Maybe Ben-Hur or Barry Lyndon. But I don’t see WB going that route with those titles.

    AI Used for Film Restoration For Home Video

    I’ve seen Lawrence of Arabia at least 5 times in a theater, and have always appreciated the restoration credits. Those names are just as vital as David Lean, Peter O’Toole or Robert Bolt to the film in its current form. Without their work I would not have seen the movie. Plus I don’t know how...

    Hamlet (1990)

    In the States, only Branagh’s version of the three highest profile productions is on Blu Ray, and a poorly reviewed one at that. Would love to see Zeffirelli’s and Olivier’s best picture winner in blu ray, plus Branagh’s in 4K that would show off the 65mm photography.

    Notorious (1946) and Spellbound??

    Hitch's 125th birthday is in August, so hopefully we'll hear something from Criterion in May.

    Press Release Criterion Press Release: Trainspotting (1996) (4k UHD Combo)

    Recently got this from the Flash Sale. Not a big fan of the packaging either. The discs are exposed from the top. The bare minimum purpose of any case is to protect the disc from dust accumulation.

    Hardware Review Panasonic DP UB820 UHD Blu Ray Player Review

    I really like this player. My only real complaint, is having a tv with both HDR 10+ and Dolby Vision, playing a disc with both formats it defaults to HDR 10+. You have to go in and disable 10+ to watch it in DV

    Press Release SPHE Press Release: Columbia Classics 4k Ultra HD Collection: Volume 4

    Really was thinking that if they released a Vol 4, Funny Girl would be a part.

    Press Release BVHE Press Release: The Abyss, True Lies, Aliens, Titanic, Avatar and Avatar: The Way of the Water (4k UHD) (Blu-ray)

    Disney has the international rights through 20th Century. So it’s in their interest to have a quality UHD.

    I believe they delay announcements when the 15th falls on a Friday.

    A Few Words About While we wait for A few words about...™ Upcoming projects - in 4k UHD & Blu-ray

    There is a DCP I happen to work for an Alamo Drafthouse that happens to be running a Hitchcock series this month. All of Universal’s Hitchcock titles were bundled in a hard drive, even though we only needed a few of them. Most of them were created in 2012, including Man Who Knew Too Much.

    Blu-ray Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ - The Broadway Melody -- in Blu-ray

    Robert, do you think technology is heading towards the ability to derive a workable restoration of the two-color sequence derived from fragments that survive?

    Blu-ray Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ - Cimarron (1931) -- in Blu-ray

    I've seen a lot of criticism on the film's treatment of race. While there certainly are some problematic scenes that invite groans, I was always impressed with how forward thinking it was towards women and Native American issues.

    Criterion only has The Front Page as an extra on His Girl Friday. I believe Kino has a standalone disc. The Criterion Nashville is OOP, but Paramount released their own from a newer image harvest.

    A Few Words About What percentage of home video collectors possess 3D anaglyph glasses?

    Maybe include an Amazon link for glasses? Could that also be a revenue generator as well? Pay per click?

    Pre-Order Rebel Without A Cause (1955) (4k UHD) Available for Preorder

    We absolutely will see East of Eden soon. And with Warners being Warners, a Giant/Rebel/Eden box set shortly after.

    Jaws Being Released In Theaters in 3D…3D Blu ray coming?

    Projectionist here: The same DCP can be used with multiple systems. The issue you described, different colors through each lens of the glasses, sounds like the filters weren’t in place in front of the lens. You said you “just came back” and posted on Saturday. The movie was released on...

    Press Release Criterion Press Release: Daisies (1966) (Blu-ray)

    Never heard of this title, I'm intrigued, but not enough to blind buy. Do we know if the Criterion Channel is streaming the 4K restoration, or the master they used for the Eclipse Series DVD?

    Press Release Criterion Press Release: Arsenic and Old Lace (1944) (Blu-ray)

    Capra had intended for the money from this release to support his family when he left Hollywood for the war effort. So the delay was an added source of stress in an already stressful time.

    UHD Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ - Killer's Kiss -- in 4k UHD

    You may be thinking of The Killing. Criterion didn’t release Killer’s Kiss. Edit: my mistake. It’s a special feature on The Killing Blu Ray. So if you want a stand-alone version, go for it.

    If you've already used that First Order 20% coupon (like me), Gruv is offering a 24 hour St. Patricks Day sale that's 17% 17PATRICKOFF I applied it to my preorder

    A Few Words About A few words about…™ The Alfred Hitchcock Classics Collection - in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    By my count, Universal has 4 more titles for a 4K Vol 3. Man Who Knew Too Much, Topaz, Torn Curtain and Frenzy.

    Pre-Order The Untouchables (1987) (4k UHD ) Available for Preorder

    They wouldn't intentionally design lousy cover art to influence people to spend an extra $5 on the steelbook that's sitting on the same shelf at Best Buy. They wouldn't really do that would they?

    UHD Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ Last Night in Soho -- in 4k UHD

    Loved the use of audio in the movie. The first 20 minutes are mono, then at a certain point surrounds kick in. Sonically the equivalent of black and white Dorothy opening the door into Technicolor Oz.

    Criterion Blu-ray titles!

    Was at B&N picking up Blood Simple and Inside Llewyn Davis. I was then searching the Criterion website thinking "There can't be only two Coen Brothers movies in the collection" So I'm happy there will soon be three, hoping there will be more.

    Possibly she was confusing it with Seven Year Itch. Repertory cinemas only. If they're primarily first run, Disney owned titles are off limits. The other studios are happy to take the theaters' money to book from their catalogue.
