    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...

    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 Gladiator to have been shorn its plastic shackles. Now, a bit more than two years later, they arise anew, and there are two differences in Gladiator - a lovely...

    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. Now released in the new Columbia six film boxed set, it has seemingly reached home video nirvana. Everything that one might wish for is...

    Dolby Vision

    Okay. As I am on the hunt for a new 4K 65 inch TV I would appreciate the forums opinion on Dolby Vision. I am thinking about getting a cheaper option TV without Dolby Vision but not sure if it is worth paying a few hundred pounds more to have a TV with the technology. I hear many different...

    Why is Dolby Vision playing at 1080?

    Video, and especially the latest advancements, aren't my wheelhouse, but I've been taking the steps to moving to UHD, Atmos, etc over the last several months. I just upgraded the display in my living room system to a Vizio M558-G1 (extremely happy so far. What a bargain display) and as I've...

    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...

    UHD Review A few words about...™ Apocalypse Now Final Cut -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    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...

    Marantz OSD menus disabled in Dolby Vision

    I have a Marantz SR6010 and recently updated to an LG 4K HDR B8 OLED 77" with Dolby Vision. Anytime I am in Dolby Vision mode, say with my Apple TV 4K, the on screen display menus from the receiver will not display on the TV.

    Dolby Vision pass-through AVR or TV?

    I have an LG OLED TV compatible with Dolby Vision, my blu-ray is also Dolby Vision capable, and my AVR is also Dolby Vision capable.

    UHD Review A few words about...™ Lord of War -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    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...

    UHD Review A few words about...™ Bohemian Rhapsody & A Star is Born (2018) -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    It is neither through disrespect, nor negligence, that I combine the comments on two of the major 4k Blu-ray releases from the 2018 season. Each in its own way, defines a specific style, both cinematographically as well as aurally, and both are reproduced on tiny CD-sized discs with immense...

    When it comes to viscerally impressive, high octane entertainment, the latest in the MI series, Fallout, is hard to beat. Over two hours of (almost) non-stop action, with a viable storyline, and terrific performances, Christopher McQuarrie's latest big budget project has all the bells and...

    HDR/Dolby Vision discussion for elevated black levels & calibration issues.

    Damn! I wish they would have released a new Blu-ray alongside the 4K. This sucks in a major way. No purchase for me unfortunately, and there will probably never be a good 1080p Blu-ray. Sad what UHD is doing to great films..

    Ol Parker, possibly best known for his Exotic Marigold Hotel films, moves the locale from India to Greece, for the second in the Mamma Mia! series. If you enjoyed the first film, the second is more of the same, with a few new faces, and more songs from the great Swiss band Sha-Na-Na, only now...

    4K Blu-ray in HDR10, but iTunes streaming in Dolby Vision...?!

    In looking around, I've come across several titles that are available to rent/purchase in iTunes via the Apple TV 4K, that are in Dolby Vision. But when I look at the 4K UHD Blu-ray releases of these same titles, they were never released in anything but HDR10. So is Apple/iTunes converting them...

    Hey everyone, I have a Yamaha RX-V381.

    I'm currently shopping around for a new 4k player and noticed some have Dolby Vision support. Is DV something that I will want in the near future? Is DV basically the same as HDR and we are just waiting to see which of the two wins out? Is there a 4k player that people recommend? I already...

    The Matrix, directed by the Wachowskis, became an immediate social phenomenon when it was released in 1999. It holds up beautifully, almost two decades later, and WB's new 4k rendering, with Dolby Atmos and HDR/Dolby Vision, is a wonderful way to view it. A gorgeous representation of the film...
