    Warner Brothers- Disturbing new trend of cropping non-scope widescreen films?

    I've noticed a couple recent instances of Warner Brothers cropping non-scope widescreen films to 1.78:1 and am hoping this is an anomaly and not a new company policy, but felt compelled to point it out. And no, I'm not talking about "opening up" soft-matted 1.85:1 films to 1.78, but literally...

    WEST OF MEMPHIS- bare-bones 'rental' copies being sold as having the extra features?

    I just received a Blu-ray of the great documenary WEST OF MEMPHIS that I bought from amazon.com ("sold" from an affiliate of amazon, but "fulfilled by Amazon").

    Question re: combing black-and-white separation masters...

    - make that COMBINING black-and-white separation masters to create a new pre-print element (I wish you could edit topic headlines here)... I'm not sure if this is feasible, but it's something I've been wondering. I know from reading a lot about color film restoration (mostly stuff regarding...

    Is Blue Underground starting to suffer from Miriamax-itis?

    I had a chance to check out two recent Blue Underground releases on my video projector, and I was shocked and surprised that both of them (THE FINAL COUNTDOWN and UNCLE SAM) suffer from the same extreme digital filtering plus edge enhancement that we've been seeing from such Miramax titles as...
