Re: Studios Releasing DVD But No Blu-ray?

My wife's aunt only upgraded to her first HDTV this year, and only because her old standard-def CRT died. She bought the cheapest TV she could find, and the only thing she watches on it is...

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

I'd equate Until the End of the World more with some of his very early films, like Kings of the Road, which is three hours long and doesn't really come together until the last half.

Re: Criterion releases on Blu-Rays, Part II

The Director's Cut is much better than the theatrical cut. The long version is really intended to be viewed in three parts like a miniseries, which is how it aired on German television.

Re: The One and Only Shout and Scream Factory Blu-ray Thread

Did it need a remaster? The previous Fox Blu-ray already had an excellent transfer.

Re: The Official Arrow Blu-ray Thread

Arrow's frequent release strategy for high-interest titles is to initially issue a Limited Edition with fancy packaging, a booklet, and physical swag such as art cards and a poster. (The SteelBook is...

Re: Apocalypse Now - remastered in 4K - "The Final Cut"

While that's certainly the case for many "director's cuts," there have also been plenty of examples where the theatrical version of a movie was compromised due to studio meddling or the need to hit a...

Re: The Doors 8/12

It's twice the price, unfortunately. The artwork is also just as ugly, even on the SteelBook version.

Re: Apocalypse Now - remastered in 4K - "The Final Cut"

Hearts of Darkness was only included in the 3-disc Full Disclosure Edition at that time.

Re: X-Files Collector's Box Set - 12/8/15

The new seasons, while terrible overall, each still had one or two really good episodes mixed in that are definitely keepers.

$65 USD for a 60-disc box set is an amazing deal. That's only $1.08...

Re: Star Wars saga -- Disney BD re-release

This happens even within a single studio. Warner Bros has a frustrating habit of removing its old logos to replace them with the modern WB shield. This really hurts some movies, like The Exorcist....

Re: Twin Peaks: Season 3/The Return - 12/5/17 (slight spoilers within)

Lynch no doubt has hours of that footage and plays it in a loop while he meditates. :)

Re: Star Wars saga -- Disney BD re-release

You shouldn't underestimate how spiteful Disney can be regarding the Fox acquisition. They've already made a very public spectacle of canceling every upcoming movie in development at the studio. They...

I don't think "story" is really the right word for whatever Twin Peaks turned into in Season 3.

Obviously a brain fart. I've corrected the post to say Francis Coppola.

Re: Apocalypse Now - remastered in 4K - "The Final Cut"

The two of you seem to be forgetting that the second Playmates scene was not in the original version of the movie.

Or is it your contention that 1979 Francis Coppola was an SJW snowflake, then he...

Re: Apocalypse Now - remastered in 4K - "The Final Cut"

Isn't the plantation scene 30 minutes long? It sure felt like it. Cutting 20 out of it would make a big improvement. :)

Re: Apocalypse Now - remastered in 4K - "The Final Cut"

I wouldn't really call that a "significant" addition to Redux, personally. Certainly not more significant than the other two I mentioned.

Re: Apocalypse Now - remastered in 4K - "The Final Cut"

The movie is very old and very famous, so I don't think we need to worry about spoilers.

I'm guessing he cut the plantation scene and kept the Playmates scene? Is that what you're saying?

Re: Smallville season 5 HD DVD disc rot

This sounds fishy to me. Even if the network broadcast the program at 720p (and IIRC, the WB network broadcast everything in 1080i), the original studio master should be at least 1080p resolution, if...

It's a very problematic movie.
