    Is there any chance at all of getting Moulin Rouge on UHD?

    I think it was on Digital Bits a while back that I read that Disney has no plans to continue to release catalog titles on UHD. Given that Moulin Rouge is a Fox title, which means Disney now owns it, are my hopes for a UHD version completely dashed? Or is there still some hope?

    UHD Review A few words about…™ The Alfred Hitchcock Classics Collection - in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    For those unaware, Alfred Hitchcock was a filmmaker of (generally) thrillers, occasionally with a bit of humor thrown in, and one single comedy - Mr. and Mrs. Smith (the 1941 RKO version). For this 4k Hitchcock sampler of his productions either produced for or owned by Universal, of which there...

    UHD Review A few words about…™ Beetlejuice - in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    I may be the only one to notice this, but Tim Burton's film tend to be a bit weird. Beetlejuice fits right in with much of his other work. And that's a good thing, as it's a terrific piece of entertainment. As to how it looks and sounds in 4k, I'll apologize in advance to those who might like...

    UHD Review A few words about…™ Spartacus - in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    Spartacus is a film near and dear to my heart. I know it well, having first seen it theatrically, in 70mm, in 1960. When it was re-issued in 1967 it had been shorn (much like Lawrence) of much of the material that held the film together, inclusive of the original ending. Photographed in 35/8...

    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. And it's beautiful. The film holds up wonderfully. Color, densities, black levels (further supported...

    UHD Review A few words about…™ The Blues Brothers - in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    The Blues Brothers, John Landis' now forty year-old paean to the blues, overkill and music, has always reminded me of the Ray & Irwin's garage sequence from Mad World. Actually shot in Vancouver, dressed as Chicago, saved billions of dollars in the various scenes of destruction, merriment and...

    UHD Review A few words about…™ The Deer Hunter - in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    The Deer Hunter is a 1979 film, directed by Michael Cimino, which won some awards back in the day. It holds up beautifully. Shout Factory's new 4k - a pleasant surprise there - is a mixed bag. The master apparently comes from Canal +. IMHO, someone cranked the HDR a bit high, making the film...

    UHD Review A few words about…™ Color Out of Space - in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    Possibly I'm just not a Lovecraft fan, although I find Arthur Machen's work very interesting. Different tones. Richard Stanley's Color out of Space was recommended to me, and I've viewed the 4k, which is a lovely 4k release. It's the film, or possibly the screenplay that the problem...

    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...

    UHD Review A few words about…™ The Invisible Man (2020) — in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    For The Invisible Man, Blumhouse, in league with director Leigh Whannell, goes beyond base genre, and has created a beautifully re-invented version of the 1933 Universal classic of the same name, starring Claude Rains, as directed by James Whale, from the novel by H.G. Wells. Elizabeth Moss...

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

    I've been waiting for this one. A true gangster comedy. Actually, more than that. In all its 4k - it's Real 4k - glory, this release from Universal is more like the Citizen Kane of gangster films. With a wonderful cast -- Matthew McConaughey, Charlie Hunnam, Michele Dockery, Jeremy Strong...

    I happened upon the 2019 live-action version of The classic animated film, The Lion King (I believe the final actually drawn), while testing out Disney's new streaming service, and came away impressed by both. I'd had steered clear of the remake , as it seemed like a calculated money-grab by...

    The Empire Strikes Back, directed by Irvin Kershner, is either the second or fifth installment in the series, dependent upon how one is counting. It was a wonderful film in 1980, and remains so today. Stand the test of time? You'betcha! Mr. Kershner, who had been at the film racket for...

    Return of the Jedi is either the third or sixth film in the Star Wars series, dependent upon how one perceives it. Regardless, you all know the storyline. The new 4k UHD / HDR release from Disney is just fine. Has grain been managed? Of course, but it looks fine. Possibly because of it, one...

    UHD Review A few words about...™ Star Wars: A New Hope -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    As everyone knows, Star Wars: A New Hope, may be the first to hit motion pictures screen (in the summer of 1977), but stands as the fourth in the series of nine. It's a bit akin to a Broadway shell game. Which walnut is the pea under? "Let's sit down and watch part four!" No need to discuss...
