I've heard good things, but have never seen it. For $5 I took the chance.
I picked up that and Big Fish (in HD) for $4.99 because I'd never upgraded my DVD of those titles. There were probably 5 or 6 others that I only have the DVD for that I would have upgraded, but they weren't MoviesAnywhere studios and I'm not an AppleTV user.
Be warned that the digital version of Day The Earth Stood Still doesn’t include bonus features and the DVD had some pretty great ones - might want to hold on to the disc too.
It's a lot of fun, just know that the iTunes version is only available dubbed. I can't imagine what the reasoning is there since the DVDs had the Japanese track.
Magnum P.I. the complete series on sale for $29.99 at iTunes. Shoutout to Mark-P for the heads up.
FYI CheapCharts now has an Apple TV app
That’s been there for a long time.
Ah, ok good. The description they have for the TV app makes it sound like it's brand new, so it must just be out of date...
Yeh I don’t like it.
I haven’t figured out if there’s a way to make the pictures smaller.
Can only see 3 at a time.
I just use the app on the iPad or the web site.
Vudu is having a weekend sale, and I found the three season run of Veronica Mars in HD for $24.99. I had a 10% coupon from watching one of their Free with Ads selections two weeks ago, and so I ended up paying just slightly more than the $19.99 that iTunes was selling it for a few months ago for a very, very brief period.
Can't wait to rewatch the series in HD.
I picked up the complete series for $49.99 back in January and thought that was a good deal then.
The first season is a bit wonky at times in ways that make me think that the HD version was an afterthought; a few scenes are upscaled from SD, the focus pulling isn't always exactly on point, and the grain from the 16mm footage is a bit much at times.
The subsequent seasons are improved, however. I'm still making my way through the third season ahead of the new Hulu run at the end of the month.
My wife has been watching the HD versions on Hulu rather than get old DVDs, so that’s another vote in favor of the HD version. I still haven’t seen much of the show but perhaps one day...
I rewatched the Pilot episode tonight. You're right, Adam, about the HD quality being a bit compromised, but the writing and performances are so fresh and entertaining that I can take it in my stride. I'm really going to enjoy revisiting the entire run over the next month and a half. I'll hang on to the DVDs, though, since they do have some bonus material.
The Big Clock is back on sale again. This time from Universal and at $4.99 instead of $3.99.
I wonder if any of these digital retailers are going to have a Prime Day sale like everybody else seems to be having on the 15th and 16th?
Good question. It'll be interesting to see the answer.
I know the dilemma you are all facing today - how can a movie called "Attack of the Killer Donuts" not be worth $2.99?
I was going to buy this. Is there an issue with this version?
There's no issue with it. Arrow licensed the film from Universal for Blu-Ray and had included it as one of their $3.99 iTunes sale titles a few weeks ago. Digital rights still belonged to Universal, so the Arrow version got removed. I believe Crawdaddy said the two versions were identical in quality.
