    Mad Love (1935) - Peter Lorre's first American language film. Definitely pre-code. It feels more like a Warner Bros pic than an MGM. I'm always amazed at how well he speaks English at this point in his career. It also has the Three Stooges old boss Ted Healy as an American reporter in Paris.

    Thanks; will be pickin' this up at some point to replace the Alpha Video full screen DVD I have of the title -- one of our favorites -- which is beginning to look a bit horrid.

  6. I should have qualified-they used the same scan for both the DVD and Blu for the first edition. Shout used a new 4k scam from the original camera negative so the detail is enhanced.

    Thanks for this; indeed, I'm glad I went with the Shout release, as it really is like watching it for the first time. Clean, detailed and just so much better than the DVD. I'm also seeing elements to the left and right of the screen edges that I never saw before when I used to blow the non-anamorphic widescreen DVD up...:pineapple:

    I wanted to really like this -- as I'm a huge Statham fan -- but I think the trailers were better than the film itself. Still, was nice to have a Deep Star Six or Leviathan-like underwater horror flick to enjoy in this era...

    Did you see Underwater?

    No...the Meg is worth a look. : )

    Huh?

    I said I saw it...
     
  12. I actually liked Underwater. It had modest ambitions and lived up to it.

    Yeah, I didn't think it was bad, either; it was like an Abyss/Deep Star Six/Leviathan for this era.

    I watched Pretty In Pink on BD last night. It was nostalgic. It was the first time I'd viewed it since the cinema back in the 80's.

    The last five movies I watched: All About Eve / Blue Denim / High Noon / Now, Voyager / Scarlet Street. All five are very highly recommended!

    Doom Patrol on blu-ray looked WAY BETTER than on HBO or the downloads I found later on the net.

  21. Yeah the streaming angle doesn’t offer true high def and the compression and authoring buries much of the detail. Agents of shield is much the same way.

  23. UFO-The complete series Blu (region b)
    Hang ‘Em High from Shout. Same transfer as the MGM fromwhat I can tell but slightly better encode and the special features are terrific.

    Mr Smith Goes to Washington from the Columbia Classics UHD box.

    A great example of HDR's ability to make monochrome movies stand out

    I watched Knives Out on UHD-BD. I really loved the movie. The PQ and Atmos audio both sparkled. :thumbsup:
