Have you tried wiping the disc's data side -- from the center out -- with a microfiber cloth?

UHDs seem to be very sensitive to minor specks. An awful lot of time I'll put a new disc, right out of the case, into the player. The movie plays for a reasonable amount of time, and then hangs. I'll pop the disc out, and the surface looks flawless. But I still wipe it with a microfiber cloth, after which is plays perfectly. Within the last week I had this problem with Criterion's (it's not always Criterion) UHD of Mildred Pierce.

I’m going to say it. This is simply a GREAT movie.

I, for one, was never the least bit bothered by the depiction of men. The reality is, men tend to be idiotic assholes as often as not.

I think he was asking when the 50% off sale at criterion.com usually starts, not B&N.

Well, maybe, but he quoted a post talking about Amazon price matching B&N during this month's sale.

In any case, is buying at 50% off at criterion.com more appealing than buying at 50% off at B&N or Amazon?

If you have Criterion points/gift codes then the answer is a big "yes." ;)

Was it just me, or was the audio track on the 4K at a really low level? I had to crank up the volume: Ordinarily, my setting is 50, but had to turn this one up to 80, and even that seemed a little quiet. At least the menu audio was at normal levels, so it could blast out my eardrums when the disc returned to it after the feature was over :emoji_astonished:.

Will the titles being released this month (e.g. After Hours) also be included in the sale? Still seeing $35 at Amazon...

Typically, the Barnes & Noble sale applies to any Critetion titles scheduled for release before the end of the sale period. A preorder for something that streets in late July should be covered, but one for something that streets in August would not.

It probably doesn't happen all the time, but Amazon usually price matches in stock items only. Meaning they will match B&N if B&N has the item in stock, In addition, Amazon is not price matching all Criterions available in stock at B&N though they continue to add items. Not sure why or if they price match items when customers call CS for a price match. Not sure if that is still a thing as it was back in the day.

If we're nitpicking and pixel peeping, the just released Capelight UHD in Germany, has better encoding/compression.
See - for example - in the first comparison the wall on the upper left of Susan Sarandon:

I'll buy this one, although to tell you the truth I preferred the Criterion cover, even if it isn't the original film poster.

How does the slow.pic comparison work? What input does it require to alternate the two images?

You toggle between the 2 images either by left click on your mouse, or with left and right arrow on your keyboard.
With the up and down arrow you toggle between different screenshots comparisons.
In that link there are 15 different comparisons.
