Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

They may have been scanned at 4k, but were they graded for HDR?

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

It would make sense given Criterion's relationship with Lynch, but it seems like a big waste. In addition to being a flat-out terrible movie, Inland Empire was shot on ultra-crappy standard-def video...

Re: Fright Night (1985): Twilight Time exclusive - 12/13/11

Amazon has feuds with many studios. I've seen this happen with Sony titles before. Last week, some Universal titles were listed as "Unavailable" until a few days after street date as well.

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

I would say Anne of the Thousand Days, but Twilight Time just put that out.

The 1,000 Eyes of Dr. Mabuse, maybe?

Re: The Official Arrow Blu-ray Thread

Re: DVDActive shuts down

I still pop in occasionally for the Robert Harris threads, but that's about it. I agree that I don't like their current site layout.

That's distressing. Is he still with the site or did they at least fire him?

Re: The Official Arrow Blu-ray Thread

That plot description for Terra Formars is very confusingly worded.

Damn. :(

I had no idea he was ill. I wonder what this means for the label. It's a pretty small company, I believe.

Re: True Lies & The Abyss Blus in 2014, plus The X-Files & Twin Peaks

Nobody really knows what his deal is these days. I suspect that he just stopped caring about these two movies and would rather not deal with them.

Re: True Lies & The Abyss Blus in 2014, plus The X-Files & Twin Peaks

That's possibly true of The Abyss, which is primarily owned by 20th Century Fox. But True Lies was almost entirely a Lightstorm Entertainment production, with Fox only acting as distributor. I'd...

Re: Peter Jackson working to upgrade Bad Taste, Braindead, Feebles, Heavenly Creature

I'm not sure which sounds worse, DNR'ing the hell out of these old movies, or... well... everything to do with Mortal Engines. Both very bad ideas coming from Jackson these days.

Re: The Official "3D" Blu ray Thread. Now with Smell-O-Vision.

A viewer who, in 2018, doesn't have equipment that can decode lossless audio is almost certainly never going to hear a difference between lossy DTS and lossy DD, and probably wouldn't care even if...

Re: The Official "3D" Blu ray Thread. Now with Smell-O-Vision.

All Dolby TrueHD tracks come with a companion Dolby Digital track. It's required, not optional. Technically, this is different than the core+metadata structure of DTS-MA, but in practice it amounts...

Re: The Official "3D" Blu ray Thread. Now with Smell-O-Vision.

Re: The Official "3D" Blu ray Thread. Now with Smell-O-Vision.

You assume that each of these tracks is 448 kb/s. That isn't necessarily the case. Some may only be 384 kb/s at 5.1, or even much lower for 2.0. In fact, many of these tracks may share a common 4.1...

Re: The Official "3D" Blu ray Thread. Now with Smell-O-Vision.

I stand corrected. Nevertheless, the most recent of those was 2 years ago. As far as I'm aware, Warner has dropped support for Atmos on 3D releases since then.
