You would have to ask Paramount whose spokesperson made that statement.
Ha. Robert beat me to it.
$299 a month.
After buying the iTunes version months ago and only watching 2/3s of it, I finally remembered to watch the remainder last night.
I was struck by the surround action in the 5.1 track in the climactic minutes. If the original 3-track audio is missing, how did they accomplish the 5.1 track? It was very impressive. I know they can use software to simulate a discrete 5.1 track, but I don't think I've ever heard anything this good.
Also, when I first resumed it, I think iTunes displayed text saying a 4K version is available. But when I tried to go back to see that message, it didn't appear. Did anyone else notice it?
I taped the TCM version this week and I have to say, I didn't like what I saw. TCM was wider then the DVD by 2 inches on my 65 incher, I wonder why? TCM has more info only on the sides. When the TCM movie shows Mars it's blue but the DVD is red, I wonder why? The DVD had beautiful color, TCM muted.
WHAT HAPPENED TO THE BEAUTIFUL TECNICOLOR?
The TCM was much darker with almost washed out colors. Sure it was nice having the scratches removed and the wires, but over all not good looking at all.
Was this the edition that iTunes put out?
I don't know, but what I do know is that iTunes 4K/Dolby Vision stream looks great on my 65" OLED.
I saw the broadcast too and compared it to my dvd. I thought the TCM broadcast had a sharper picture and brighter colors. To me the broadcast was better than my dvd.
The TCM looked and sounded great to me, it's the same master as the iTunes version. I think the DVD was cropped to 1.33, the TCM and iTunes is 1.37.
IMDb lists the movie's OAR as 1.66:1. This movie screams for a proper blu ray release.
I believe the IMDB is wrong on this one. Wouldn't be the first time.
Though it was released in late 1953, the movie was filmed in Jan-Feb, 1952, so the OAR isn't 1.66:1.
IMDB is pretty reliable when it comes to technical specs for newer movies - older ones, not so much.
Good to know and thanks for the clarification, gents. I realize that 1953 was borderline-widescreen intro, so I'm not shocked the IMDb listing got this one wrong. I guess I was hoping it was an early widescreen release -- and how great would that have been for a title like this...?
Did see the rest of the TCM broadcast and noticed the cables holding the Martian machines are gone.
For the latest remix, they added new sound effects throughout.
I think we’ve gone over this. They did not.
I didn't notice Mars being blue, but I'll look again when I get around to it.
The iTunes version had lovely color.
Also, when comparing to the DVD, let us know which one. There were at least two releases on DVD. I once owned the second version, but I don't think I have it any longer.
Either version.The first one was great, but the second edition was much brighter and of course it showed the wires much more.The view of Mars at the beginning was Red/Orange in the first DVD, the second one was brighter Red/Oranger and the TCM version was BLUE.
My Mit 65738 DLP TV that only does 1080 and has been ISFed, will it show different colors for broadcast TV and different colors for discs?
Thanks in advance for checking this out.
