    UHD Review A few words about...™ 2001: a space odyssey -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    Guess we just have different ways of using google. The first link to "audio tearing" on my search stated: "Fix Audio Static Crackling Popping with Realtek Sound Card. If you have a Windows 7 machine with a Realtek sound chipset or drivers, then you may have run into a problem where you...

    UHD Review A few words about...™ 2001: a space odyssey -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    Well I didn't know the meaning of the term, but it took me less than a minute to find out by googling. Less than the time it would have taken to post a response complaining about your use of the term.

    :huh: I dunno. I kind of like the Hoffman forums. Pick up a lot of good info there.

    First Man (2018)

    I think the film does a good job of showing what kind of person he was. Given that he had a very normal family history with no traumatic events early in life I'm not sure the question of why is of much interest here or even possible to answer. Been reading the book the film is based on...

    First Man (2018)

    It is all over the film. Ironically, I think the people complaining most about the missing flag planting scene would really appreciate the depiction of the space race in this film. They are missing out if they don't give the film a chance by boycotting it.

    First Man (2018)

    Armstrong did go off NASA's script when he walked off by himself. I've read that what he did then is a product of his biographer's speculation.

    First Man (2018)

    Just back from IMAX showing. Perhaps my expectations were slightly diminished by reading some of the earlier criticisms - it was much better than I had expected. Found it very moving and interesting throughout. I thought it did a very good job of showing Armstrong's family issues and the...

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956) -- in Blu-ray

    Am a big fan of this movie. So already preordered it. Finally got around to reading the book it is based on. Was surprised to learn that the movie (even with its tacked on 'happy ending') is much darker than the original story.

    First Man (2018)

    Not a big fan either. Don't care for Gosling at all. But I am looking forward to seeing this flick. Listened to a good interview of Chazelle today on NPR's "Fresh Air": https://www.npr.org/2018/10/10/656118568/first-man-director-armstrongs-moon-walk-is-a-story-of-coping-and-grief It gives...

    A few words about...™ Buffy the Vampire Slayer -- in Blu-ray

    He also hated it because of Donald Sutherland. The director, Fran Rubel Kuzui, did go on to produce the tv series so I would assume there were no hard feelings between her and Joss Whedon.

    UHD Review A few words about...™ Darkest Hour -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    Fun movie. Gary Oldman hit it out of the park for his portrayal of Churchill. Antony Beevor had some rather critical remarks regarding the film's historical accuracy: "Darkest Hour had even more historical inaccuracies. Gary Oldman fully deserved the best actor Oscar for his brilliant...

    Pre-Order The Big Country (1958) (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    Ordered a copy too after seeing the screenshots on DVDBeaver. The stretching bugged the heck out of me. Am very happy to see it corrected.

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

    I'm in the States and went ahead and placed an order for it from Arrow's UK site. Received notification yesterday that it is on the way. I see little reason for the complaints here. It is a great release and well worth the money spent. Arrow should be rewarded for their work and a good way...

    Hope you are joking about colorizing this. Film noir is best in B&W. Why ruin it by adding psuedo colors?

    Pre-Order The Lost World (1925) (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    History is changed all the time. It's changed by the right and the left. In any case, the human race is not doomed because a few intertitles are changed in a silent film.

    Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4 (2016-2017)

    The machine which exists in the real world apparently could only be created from within the Framework (which is an imaginary world). To me, that is the most interesting point. Doesn't strike me as extremely bad writing.

    Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4 (2016-2017)

    Bringing Ward back would be a good thing. I agree that Hope is a simulation. That doesn't entail creepiness. If it is an accurate simulation of the real person then it would be good to give her a human body. Mac certainly doesn't think she is creepy. He should know. We seem to be viewing...

    Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4 (2016-2017)

    One of the best shows of the season. My wife loved it also. Wondering, since Fitz has now built a machine that can provide bodies for those in the Framework if perhaps Hope will be given a body enabling her to have a life in the real world. Sorry Josh, but given Daisy's past history, I don't...

    Gettysburg

    Used to be a big Civil War buff and have seen lots of pics from that time. The beards in this movie just look horribly fake. They really should have hired a better makeup crew for this.:angry:

    Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4 (2016-2017)

    Josh, I can understand that you simply don't like the story being told, but I can't accept your characterization of these last few episodes as being simply "what if?" scenarios given the fact that we now know that events in the framework can lead to the real death of a character. And I'd be...

    Silence (2016)

    Agree that they were young but doubt they were babyfaced. People aged much faster in that time period. In any case, I agree that Driver is awesome. I've yet to be impressed by Garfield.

    UHD Review A few words about...™ Hacksaw Ridge -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    Well I wouldn't call them 'cheats' but several of the over-the-top battle sequences took me out of this film. Desmond kicking that grenade like it was a soccer ball is one example. It is interesting how different reactions can be. I thought it merely ok. But would not ever take the time to...

    Personally, I think 4K Blu-ray is going to be another bust

    A well produced CD is superior to vinyl. There really isn't need for DVD-A or SACD since they add little if anything to the sound quality you can already get with CD. So it is quite understandable that they failed to replace CD's.
