The 4k blu ray played flawlessly up until approximately 46 or 47 minutes into the film. Then it began stuttering and jerking and then just froze. I tried to play the disc again, and the problem recurred in the same spot. I’ve since returned the disc to Amazon.
I had no issues playing the 4K disc in its entirety on my Oppo 203. I then played the same same 4K disc on my Panny 820 player up to the 50 minute mark without any issues.I detected a similar problem, at what was perceived as a layer change.
No issues on my Panasonic UB9000 either, and I agree with your opinion of the 4K release, Robert. It looks stellar.I had no issues playing the 4K disc in its entirety on my Oppo 203. I then played the same same 4K disc on my Panny 820 player up to the 50 minute mark without any issues.
The issue actually came from institutions not purchasing newer Criterion DF releases because they had no use for the BD and didn't want / couldn't afford to pay the extra charge. This is a position unique to Criterion, who seem (within the market) uniquely dependant on these institutions who are massively DVD-focused, hence a specific over-dependance on DVD sales for Criterion.RAH, I think you're forgetting the brouhaha that erupted a few years back when Criterion moved to exclusively releasing Blu-ray/DVD combo packs without separate SKUs for each format. DVD-only fans refused to pay a few extra dollars for Blu-rays they didn't want, and Blu-ray fans were outraged by the inclusion of DVDs sullying their precious Criterion Blu-ray shelves. (They actually demanded the right to pay the same price for a copy without the DVD.) It didn't take long for Criterion to relent and separate the formats again.
Criterion curates extras for a release, they’re generally the best of the best - ferreting materials from around the globe, getting top industry people to speak, et al.Played my 4k disc with no issues and it's the best looking version of Kane i have seen. Did enjoy The Complete Citizen Kane documentary on disc 2.
Welles wasn't exactly known for his humbleness so I can imagine that plenty of people did hate him. That hatred was probably exacerbated by Welles actually living up to his hype.They did talk about "the hatred of Orson Welles" a few times and got the impression that alot of folks hated Orson Welles?
