  2. Upgrading "The Fridge"

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Hi Twenty years ago I built this 300L isobaric sub as my proof to the world that even a forty year old pair of bass guitar speakers could make a decent sub if you threw enough watts and lumber at then. It has served me well over the years but I always knew that the old JBLs with their cloth...

    Anyone who has read "The Talisman" has been long awaiting the movie and after multiple tries since 1982, I just read that they are in production and have a clip out ..Thought there might be a few out there that find this good news.. LOL then again maybe not :)

  5. "The Wizard of Oz" Blu-Ray Supplements Review

    Movies | TV Shows | Hollywood
    For fans of this film who are considering purchasing the expensive box set as opposed to the cheaper single box Wal-mart Blu-Ray, I thought I'd review the supplements so you can determine whether you want to spend the extra money... Many of the extras have been carried over from the previous...
  6. "The Wizard of Oz" Blu-Ray Review

    Movies | TV Shows | Hollywood
    While I was commenting on another post the other day, I mentioned I had ordered the $84 Blu-Ray box set of "The Wizard of Oz" and just after I finished there was a knock on my door and there it was via Amazon.com. On Saturday, October 3, 2009, I projected the Blu-Ray in my screening room. The...
  7. "The Beatles Anthology" Standard DVD review

    Movies | TV Shows | Hollywood
    While watching "The Beatles Anthology" I had to ask the question, can a producing company make an accurate documentary about their own history? Can the Walt Disney corporation tell the real story of it's founder if they control it? The Apple coporation made this 'documentary' if that word...
  8. "The Blob" Criterion collection DVD review

    Movies | TV Shows | Hollywood
    "The Blob" became one of the quintessential fifties' sci fi films by the time it was re-issued in the sixties. It's also one of the movies that inspired me to become a filmmaker. It's the classic indie dream. Jack Harris produced this low budget feature for $100,000 starring an unknown young...
  9. "The Towering Inferno" blu ray review

    Movies | TV Shows | Hollywood
    "The Towering Inferno" is identical to the earlier Special Edition DVD except that the added pixel count makes the image sharper. I did notice that there was much more of a sub-woofer kick to the explosions on this blu ray disc so it's probable that they enhanced them from the standard edition...
  10. "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" Blu-ray review

    Movies | TV Shows | Hollywood
    The new blu ray edition of "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" is identical to the earlier special edition version except for the added pixel count. In general the image looks very sharp and colorful with the exception of the titles and optical effects which are grainy with dirt printed in...
  11. "The Silver Chalice"

    Movies | TV Shows | Hollywood
    As mentioned previously, Warner Brother's "Paul Newman Film Series" appears to be the polar opposite of the "best of" type of DVD sets. These are the 'worst of' the late super star. Newman's first movie was an embarassment to him. It's a sword and sandal picture titled, "The Silver Chalice"...
  12. "The Wizard of Oz" mastered in 8K

    Movies | TV Shows | Hollywood
    In an earlier post I wrote regarding film vs. digital, I noted that video was a moving target whereas film is a more permanent medium. On September 29, 2009, I think I have made my point. WB/MGM is releasing "The Wizard of Oz" on blu ray. What makes it significant is that it is one of the...

  14. "The Robe" Blu Ray Review

    Movies | TV Shows | Hollywood
    After many months of work Fox has released their restored version of "The Robe" on blu ray and it's a major improvement over earlier releases of the picture in the various home video formats. It was quite a job. The original movie was mass printed directly from the camera negative in 1953 and...
  15. "The Pink Panther" (1964) blu ray review

    Movies | TV Shows | Hollywood
    "The Pink Panther" (1964) blu ray is identical to the earlier anamorphically enhanced standard DVD released by MGM which was the successor owner of all UA titles when that studio went bust following the "Heavan's Gate" debacle in 1980. The exception is the greater pixel count so the image is...
  16. "The Stewardesses 3-D" standard DVD review

    Movies | TV Shows | Hollywood
    This will be one of my stranger reviews but as always I'll put everything into a historical context. To begin with... What does "The Stewardesses" have in common with "The Jazz Singer", "Becky Sharp" and "Bwana Devil". The answer is...they are all historical firsts that film buffs should see...
  17. "The Original Christmas Classics" Standard DVD Review

    Movies | TV Shows | Hollywood
    I saw all of the movies in this collection when they were first broadcast as a child and then every year until I was an adult. They were shown from 1962 through 1970. I can now look at them both nostalgically and critically. The titles contained are the Rankin/Bass animated versions of...
  18. "The Godfather" Trilogy blu ray review

    Movies | TV Shows | Hollywood
    One of the most anticipated blu ray releases was Coppola's "Godfather" features, specifically the first two movies. It's being sold in an expensive box set with the mediocre third movie along with lots of extras in prices that range from $61 (Amazon) to $109 (Circuit City). List price is...
  19. "The Duchess"

    Movies | TV Shows | Hollywood
    My wife loves a costume drama. Over the years I've learned to tolerate (and sometimes actually ENJOY) this genre, too. This latest pic has Keira Knightley, Ralph Fiennes, and Charlotte Rampling in a story based on the life of 18th century aristocrat Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire. It has the...
  20. "The Anderson Tapes" standard DVD review

    Movies | TV Shows | Hollywood
    Big Brother is watching you. That's the theme of this caper film from 1971 although it's not really part of the plot and turns out to be a red herring. Pre-dating Watergate by a year, the concept of government agencies spying on citizens was nothing new although the public was generally...
