    UHD Review Voyagers – UHD Review

    I did watch the movie last night and it has a very interesting story line. We have seen other movies like Passenger and Cargo with story lines of traveling long distance to colonize a planet. I won't spoil the movie by providing plot details other than to say I enjoyed the movie.

    I totally forgot I had purchased the Young Indiana Jones series on DVD many years ago. Started watching it again and wondered why this excellent series was never upgraded to BluRay? Maybe there is hope with the Indiana Jones series now released in 4K whoever holds the rights to Young Indiana...

    In searching EBAY for DVD & Movies I found many Netflix movies selling in the Blu-ray format. Titles like Stowaway, Without Remorse, Trial of the Chicago 7, Extraction and thought this made sense. Netflix is spending billions for original movie and TV content to maintain their market share of...

    Very good point there is child nudity in the movie, not sexual in any way, that plays within the indigenous people's lifestyle living deep in Amazon jungle. Sleepers, an excellent movie, does not have nudity but there was no holding back when it portrayed rape of teenage boys in reform school...

    Until the End of the World just released by Criterion and Blue is the Warmest Color have lots of nudity in sex scenes. At Play in the Fields of the Lord is a very good movie with a strong story and very good acting. The movie was shot on location in the Amazon jungle making for some very...

    Very intense, very good WW II movie about Allied conveys sailing across the North Atlantic in 1942 carrying critical supplies for Great Britain. 91 minutes of solid action with a Wolf Pack, as they were called, of German U-Boats attacking the convey relentlessly. Tom Hanks, as usual, is...

    International ANZIO released on Blu-ray in France. See Post #5

    My review is the actual release of ANZIO on Blu-ray which I purchased from Amazon. fr. The thread you are referring to is wishful thinking by members hoping Anzio will be released someday on blu-ray.

    International ANZIO released on Blu-ray in France. See Post #5

    Great movie I purchased the international Blu-ray 2 years ago and I am happy with it. Not sure if I will buy the Criterion release.

    While performing an autopsy a coroner finds a note in the skull of the corpse with his estranged daughter's phone number written on it. This is the beginning of an excellent murder mystery based on the best selling novel by Sebastian Fitzek and Michael Toskos. The Blu-ray contains two audio...

    International ANZIO released on Blu-ray in France. See Post #5

    The concern with movies on Blu-ray from France is when the English audio track is selected the French subtitles appear on the screen with NO shut-off. If you own a 4K player, Oppo, Sony, LG or Panasonic you can use the subtitle shift feature to move the subtitles off the screen. The French...

    Blu-ray Review Come and See – Criterion Blu-ray Review

    Excellent movie telling in detail how WW II effected the people who lived through that era. Like The Painted Bird, In Darkness, Counterfeiters, The Black Book, Innocents, Frantz and many others movies showing the horror of war not individual battles. Very happy to see Criterion release this...

    The director is sparse on detail we understand the story takes places somewhere in Eastern Europe with WW II raging between the Germans and Russians. A family sends their young son to live with his aunt in a safer part of Eastern Europe. Unexpectedly the boy's aunt dies leaving him with no...

    I don't know what other members think, I really have no real interest for a retread of Event Horizon or Escape From NY or upgrades to 4K. I want the good stuff on Blu-ray that is missing in action, The Alamo, The Abyss, True Lies, Raintree County, At Play in the Fields of the Lord, Mountains of...

    Thank you I saw that in the Spectrum guide but after opening the DVD I recorded years ago I saw no benefit of re-recording. The DVD was recorded in 4 x 3 so it appears on the TV in window boxing. With the OPPO 103 remote you can change the format to cscan which opens up the picture similar to...

    Will we ever see a Blu-ray release for "At Play in the Fields of the Lord" an excellent movie shot on location in the Amazon. Starring Kathy Bates, Aidan Quinn, Daryl Hanna and John Lithgow as missionaries trying to bring religion to the indigenous people living in the Amazon. Tom Berenger is...

    I can remember sometime ago recording Raintree County on DVD when it was playing on one of the movie channels in HD. I am going to watch it this week to see how good the recording is but I would really love this movie on Blu-ray.

    Gone With the Wind physical copies are now sold out everywhere... (Thanks to HBO Max)

    Thank you for correcting my mistake it has been a very long time since I watched Giant and I do need to view the movie again. You are correct the discrimination was directed to people of Mexican descent , not Native American Indians as in Hombre, Cheyenne Autumn and Dances with Wolves.

    Gone With the Wind physical copies are now sold out everywhere... (Thanks to HBO Max)

    I will have to watch Giant again even though she was from Mexico I thought she was Aztec. It really makes no difference discrimination is discrimination and both movies discriminate with extreme prejudice.

    Gone With the Wind physical copies are now sold out everywhere... (Thanks to HBO Max)

    I wonder of Giant and Hombre will also be pulled? Both movies are very discriminating against Native American Indians.

    Amazon and pre orders

    The title was ordered from Amazon.uk not a third party seller. I recently tried to pre-order "True Lies" in Bluray from Amazon Spain and again was advised this title does not ship to the USA. I previously received a message on the Amazon.uk site that many titles were now eligible to ship to my...

    Amazon and pre orders

    Unfortunately, not all Blurays I tried ordering True History of Kelly Gang and received their standard message "this title does not ship to USA". Not sure how they are determining which titles are available for shipment to USA?

    Amazon and pre orders

    That is true and disappointing most if not all Amazon International sites are now not shipping to USA. Independent sellers will ship to USA so if you are looking for a specific title try Ebay or Amazon.USA.

    Amazon and pre orders

    Shipping is slower and that maybe a result of third party sellers not so much the surge in on line buying caused by the pandemic. I purchased a Region-Free Panasonic UB 420 from Bombay Electronics which was shipped by Amazon. The unit will arrive 11 days after purchase. I purchased the all...

    SUBTITLE SHIFT on Bluray players

    Many Bluray players include a feature called "Subtitle Shift" that allows you to move the subtitles up or down. This is a handy feature enabling you to place the subtitles where you prefer them or in some cases move them off the screen. Some international Bluray disc are coded so when you...
