    I hope you got Starship Troopers on UHD. It's impressive, IMO.

    I watched Allied on UHD-BD. It was an OK movie, rather average. After Allied I needed something funny. Woody Allen's Bananas fit the bill.

    I watched the original Ghostbusters on UHD-BD last night. It was quite grainy in spots. It could probably use a bit of grain reduction in a hand full of scenes. The Atmos Audio came off well.

    Did you forget what thread you're on? That sounds like a response to some other thread. I like those movies except for Performance which I have not seen.

    did you see the BD of THEM!? is it cropped as they say?...

    I was thinking about that. I'm pretty sure that my LD is Academy Ratio. I was thinking that the BD looked about 1:66-1. I just looked it up, IMDB says the original ratio was 1.75-1.

    there was outrage that the BD was severely cropped on the web...guess it's a matter of opinion. I always watched it in FF since I was a kid and I have the FF DVD...

    It's a 1954 movie and when it was in the theaters, it was probably displayed in a variety of aspect ratios from 1.33-1 to 1.85-1, depending on the equipment at a given cinema.

    “Lonesome Dove” (widescreen Blu Ray; the miniseries was obviously broadcast in the 4:3 aspect ratio but it was filmed — and was previewed in a theater for industry types — in the widescreen format)

    “Band Of Brothers” Blu Ray (watched it this time with the pop-up video commentary by the actual surviving members of Easy Company)

    yes, how did the BR look compared to the DVD? which aspect ratio looked best?

    I never had a DVD of it. I have the Laserdisc. I'm fine with the BD. IMDB says 1.75-1 is the proper aspect. I was guessing it was 1.66-1 until I looked it up. The BD looks good.

    I watched my childhood friend David Keith in White Of The Eye last night. It's an OK, rather average film.

    I found it fairly interesting. Secret primordal insanity. Keith did good in the role.
    It's a Donald Cammell film (one of, four?) All worth viewing at least twice.

    Well, it's a lot better than Tennessee Buck! I was put off a bit off by how poorly shot some of the scenes looked. I wish there could of been a bit more twisty ending. I just found it rather average other than Keith being in it.
