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

    Yes, we need Funny Face (vistaVision!) in 4K. The blu-ray is substandard.

    UHD Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ - Ferris Bueller's Day Off -- in 4k UHD

    I sense that perhaps our beloved Mr. Harris says some things purely for effect. 10 months later, it appears his "effect' still has impact. Perhaps he would like to comment.

    John Williams: The Berlin Concert

    I have the deluxe version with the copper color logo and the 2 CDs. It is one of my very favorite orchestral recordings, from both the audio and video points of view. It may be 1080i, but the video quality is outstanding, as is the Atmos sound recording. Although the front wides are not...

    Sorry Robert! I now understand what goes on. I am not in favor of stealing other peoples intellectual property. Won't happen again from me.

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

    A quick check on eBay shows many copies of the UK Terminator 2 3D release, as shown in Jayembee's picture above, but they are all region B locked. I saw a few from the Japanese market, which are claimed to be region A, but I can't vouch for it. I did not see any copies of the region A version...

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

    Good to hear. I'll have to get a demo at the Apple Store. But I am bummed that the 3D video capture that the iPhone 15 Pro can do apparently can only be seen on the Vision Pro, as the HDMI output via the USB C jack on the phone does not put out any HDMI compatible 3D. Its 2D video HDMI output...

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

    My 3D disc has 2017 copyright. The packaging states regions A, B and C, and runs fine on my unmodified region A blu-ray 3D players. I believe it was prepared primarily for the Czech and Hungarian markets as it has soundtracks for Czech, Hungarian and English 7.1. The outer sleeve is in...

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

    I haven't had a chance to view the Vision Pro in action, but from what I've read, the 3D image from Terminator 2 and Titanic should be great. But from a sonic perspective, I think the 7.1 mix on the T2 3D disc and the 5.1 mix on the Titanic 3D discs would sound much more immersive and powerful...

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

    Of course, the best way to view Terminator 2 and Titanic is via their excellent 3D conversions, which stimulate portions of the visual cortex that flat images simply do not. And when both the left and right images are upscaled to 4K by the appropriate projectors, the image quality of each is...

    The Warner Archive blu-ray of Auntie Mame, based, Mr. Harris explained, on an image harvest from an 8 perf Technirama IP, is simply gorgeous.

    What is by far the BEST Laser Disc Player ever?

    I've had my Pioneer LD S2 player for about 30 years. At the time, I had a consulting job which put some unexpected extra funds in my pocket, so as a LaserDisc fan with several hundred discs, I sprang for it, and have never regretted it, although it receives very little use today. It weighs...

    Doug Pratt's DVD-Laser Disc Newsletter is alive and well, and indeed celebrated its 39th Anniversary Issue last September. It continues to be an excellent source of information and commentary about physical media and the movies available on DVD, blu-ray and UHD blu ray. After over 30 years, I...

    I have a prized copy of the LaserDisc boxed set which you can see below. I also sent for for beautiful one sheet size poster that you could obtain if you bought the box, which as you can see is proudly displayed in the"lobby" of my home theater. Many years ago, I was an amateur projectionist...

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

    As a devoted 3D fan, let me praise the 3D conversion (one of the first) of Titanic. When upscaled to 4K and presented in 3D on my Sony XW6000, the added information provided by the Z axis (depth) adds greatly to the impact and immersion of this large scale, epic film. Bear in mind that there...

    Press Release BVHE Press Release: Avatar: The Way of Water (4k UHD) (3D Blu-ray) (Blu-ray) and Avatar (4k UHD) (Blu-ray)

    I agree it's unfortunate, but also unfortunate is that the Atmos mix does not utilize the front wides. (All too common, sad to say.) But if I up-mix the 7.1 on the 3D version, (my preferred format for this) the DTS Neural-X up mixer will engage the front wides, effectively giving me a 9.4.1...

    Press Release BVHE Press Release: Avatar: The Way Of Water (4k UHD) (Digital)

    I don't think we'll ever see a high frame rate 3D disc format. Although my XpanD active shutter RF 3D system will operate up to 240 Hz, all of my 3D is from blu-ray discs, of which I have a large collection. But my new Sony XW6000ES upscales each side to 4K, then presents it in "triple flash"...

    And while we’re at it, where are the blu/rays (or 4ks) of High Society and a good transfer of Funny Face?
