I’ve been waiting for a 4K for the Boxed set. How’s it look?
Blade Runner? It looks incredible, which is especially gratifying for such a visual film.
"Ladies & Gentlemen-The Rolling Stones"
Hobbs & Shaw. two hours of leave your brain at the door action movie.
The reason for multiple subwoofers in the home theater
Shaft (2019)…. on UHD BD....terrific disc, great PQ, Atmos audio and it's very funny. I also watched the first 4 episodes of The Orville, season 1, from the DVD set. Very, very funny!!!
I watched 5 more episodes of The Orville last night. I'll probably watch the last 3 episodes of season 1 tonight.
Star Trek Catspaw 1967 1080p
I finally got around to watching some of the Johnny Quest episodes on Blu. Yeah, these were made over 50 years ago but it's still jolting to hear some of the unPC dialogue that got censored on the DVD edition, especially in light of what happened to Roseanne for using the same kind of words to describe people of color. Shame on you Race Bannon!
So, the DVD release of "Johnny Quest" has the episodes censored, but the Blu-Rays aren't censored? That was stupid of them...
un-PC or not, that's bogus to censor them-I think all TV shows on DVD/Blu-Ray should be released as originally aired... And if they are supposedly un-PC, if they're that worried about it, they can put a disclaimer on them like they did for "Looney Tunes".
Mad Max Fury Road BR (hated the film)
I'm disappointed the Orville is not out on BR.
I gave up on waiting for BD's to be released. The DVD's do look about as good as is possible for the format. I finished up season 1 last night and watched the first 2 episodes of season 2.
If it didn’t originally come out at the same time the DVD did, it won’t be released.
I agree with your sentiments. I guess it's like Disney not wanting to release Song Of The South to home video. Maybe the fact that these are cartoons and they don't want to put ideas into kids heads has something to do with it. They put a disclaimer on the old Popeye cartoons IIRC.
No doubt about the BR, maybe when I get setup for streaming I will watch it as it should look good. I have watched season I & II when it was broadcast on Fox.
"Battlestar Galactica" 1970s original TV movie
I received my US copy of Gemini Man UHD BD. I watched it this afternoon on my mid range 49" (that I watch at around 1.20/1.40 meters of distance) Samsung 4K HDR set. Movie is entertaining but picture quality is absolute demo material, the best 4K HDR picture I've ever seen.
I know that many people dislike HFR/60 fps but this looks absolutely outstanding not only because of the increase framte rate, the smoother motion and greatly reduced judder, I think such an stable picture let you see more detailed out of picture. Instead of the fuzzy looking picture that judder makes, with 60 fps you see a crystal clear picture with a sense of increased detail.
I don't understand why some people do not like HFR, I personally love it.
It wasn't a TV movie, I watched this theatrically when I was a kid, at least in Spain it was shown on cinemas.
It was in the cinema here en Estados Unidos, also. That was in either '78 or '79. I went.
It was released in the U.S. theatrically as well with sensurround.
I think it was early 79 in Spain. Of course it didn't have Sensurround here,just plain mono with no low frequencies effects.
I own both US edition and also the full series on BD. I like the pseudo 5.1 channel mix on the TV series but also the deep bass on the Movie on BD. What I don't know is why the did a 5.1 track for the movie with only the center and LFE channels with actual information, the rest of the channels are silent. Is it that hard to do a 1.1 or a 2.1 audio track?
They came up with the first .1 (sub channel) for I think, Midway or Earthquake...??? It started a trend to better sound. It was called Sense-Surround. It was a noticeable innovation even for tourists...
Sensurround in the UK as well. I went to see it!
