    UHD Review A few words about...™ Braveheart (redux) -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    This is based upon my words concerning the new Gladiator 4k Steelbook release. Back in the dark ages of home video, May of 2018 to be exact, I reviewed the 4k releases of Braveheart and Gladiator, and found Braveheart to have been shorn its plastic shackles. Now, a bit more than two years...

    A hugely popular film upon release in 1996, Columbia has released Cameron Crowe's Jerry Maguire in a special 24th Anniversary 4k UHD presentation, as part of the Columbia Collection boxed set.

    UHD Review A few words about…™ Lawrence of Arabia - in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    The new 4k release of David Lean's epic, Lawrence of Arabia, has seen four versions, and a myriad of home video itinerations, going back to praxinoscope days.

    UHD Review A few words about…™ The Mask of Zorro — in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    Cinema memories are a bit akin to muscle memory, especially as viewed through the aforementioned fog of time. It was my memory, having not seen the film since the Blu-ray was released eleven years ago (it was released twenty-two years ago), that it was a superb retelling of the zorro legend...

    I have a Yamaha TSR-7850 using Klipsch Atmos presence speakers with the cross over switch set to atmos on the speaker.

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

    As many of you know, when you're on a project, certain things go by the wayside. In my case, it was any recognition of Anna, starring dancer/model-turned-actress Sasha Luss. As I was viewing, it became apparent that it had been made by a master craftsman, but I didn't know by whom. It's the...

    UHD Review A few words about...™ Rambo The Fight Continues aka John Rambo -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    Another beautiful 4k release from the Lionsgate library, of a film that I somehow missed totally. As Rambo films go, it's good, but seems to get caught up in the totally nihilistic concept of the plot, ie unrestrained violence, as directed by Mr. Stallone. Superb actions sequences, tremendous...

    Is Dolby Atmos & DTS-X the last format consumers will support?

    While this could apply to both disc and streaming formats let's try not to concern ourselves with the delivery format but the audio format and the number of channels delivered by the audio format. We have come such a long way on the audio side and many of us have been in this hobby since the...

    Thoughts bouncing around. They begin with a confused public reception, as this is without a doubt, the Best Picture of 1979. Not that it wasn't nominated. It was. Along with seven other nominations: Film Editing, Sound, Cinematography, Screenplay based from Another Medium, Art/ Set...

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

    One could easily be led to believe, by viewing the new 4k of Edward Zwick's 1989 Glory, that the folks at Columbia have a secret sauce, enabling them to perfectly capture the appearance of an OCN Print to one of those tiny discs, we call Blu-ray. It's perfect. Especially, projected, the...

    For those who loved the 2018 re-make of A Star is Born, and can't get enough, the Special Encore Edition adds 12 minutes of additional material, padding out some music performances, and misc bits, and proving that more may or may not be better. But it is longer. The new Blu-ray, which is not...

    Technically, 13 Hours is an interesting project, which appears to have been shot on both film, as well as data, and completed as a 2k DCP. The resultant 4k Blu-ray, based upon these files is a quality affair, although in a couple of instances, there may have been digital anomalies - in this...

    I had no idea what I was getting in to with Andrew Niccol's Lord of War, and came away impressed. It's a film that' s more than the sum of its parts, leading to a commentary regarding the levels and intricacies of the sale of arms on more than a simplistic level. Shot on film (S35), and...

    While Schindler's List may not be one of those films that has the audience walking down the road afterwards, smiling, while they recall the lyrics of their favorite songs, it's a film for which Steven Spielberg will always be considered at the top of his craft. It was magnificently photographed...

    Aside from a quite extraordinary Dolby Atmos track, the question that ran through my mind while viewing the latest in the Cloverfield series, was " why?" The film seems a bit of a mashup of Alien, The Big Sleep and Beat the Devil. One superb outer space opera. A superb noir, with an extremely...
