@MrBrown those poster prices are insane!

If I am not wrong it should be labeled as Teaser. Well the teaser Poster with the WTC now really starts to count as collectible.. https://www.ebay.com/itm/301568183707 https://www.ebay.com/itm/292812980271

Burgo was part of my childhood, grew up watching him on 'Wheel of Fortune'

https://youtu.be/JGBxYo_tFuA That clip is from "Balls of Steel Australia". Burgo is a well known game-show host in Australia he did "Wheel of Fortune" and "Burgo's Catch Phrase".

I think Skyfall is the 2nd best of Craig's so far (after Casino Royale), but it does have problems. Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol was way better IMO. There's a satire of this scene in Johnny English Strikes Again, instead of "were you expecting an exploding pen?" he says "were you expecting a gun ..." https://youtu.be/57Uy9jPxxwI
avatar
avatar
The honest trailer is exactly how I felt when watching it.
avatar
I honestly can't stand Skyfall Smile
avatar
I think the video I'm thinking of this this one, but it's a bit long to check the whole thing https://youtu.be/C7iaw_qc0-A?t=650 At that timestamp though he does mention how Verhoeven saw the character. But he explains it far better from his own POV at another time. He also in that session though talk about how he softened Robocop's voice from the moment that he took off the helmet but it didn't make it into the dubbing! https://youtu.be/71BgjfEsU_E
avatar
@Oogieboogie Completely disagree on the no Depth and Superficial. I don't think it was dumb at all. I could talk for hours about it Smile
avatar
@valeyard: on the mobile Version, I do not have that "e" button.

One of the worst parts about BR2049 was that they insisted on explaining to the audience everything that had happened since the original film. Another is that the treated replicants as if they’re biological – when it’s very clear in the original that they’re entirely synthetic. It’s a fundamental key theme of Blade Runner. They look and behave like humans, and perhaps can express humanity, perhaps they are sentient, but they are artificial. Robocop has a similar theme which of course the remake didn't understand at all (Robocop is a robot not a human). Peter Weller even said before the film was made that they wouldn't understand that theme and he was right. I can't find the exact video but he says something similar here: https://youtu.be/9uDYcNS25wg?t=492
avatar
No the criticisms for BR2049 are opposite to the original. Viewers didn't understand the original. Everyone understood BR2049 as it was a slavishly formulaic dumbed-down Hollywood blockbuster. It was supposed to be an action film like the original, but it turned out to be a very slow and boring drama.
avatar
Visually and sonically stunning but has zero depth to it, completely superficial
avatar
as a film I thought BR2049 was incredibly flawed, beautiful but flawed, like ridley was jerking off to his own vision. I really didnt like it, as for Mad Max, hands down the dumbest action film i have seen in years, you could write that script on the corner of a napkin, man grunts, grunts some more, drives, grunts, pretty lady that makes man grunt, blah blah blah
avatar
Ive got to chime in and say I loved both BR2049 and Fury Road. Mad Max was pretty special in my eyes. Had Mel been able to return with an old Max it would have been pretty much perfect.
avatar
But like I said I get the hate for 2049, it's a lot of the same criticism of the original. I just happen to love both with the original in my top ten.
avatar
But that still doesn't change my mind, I don't see any of those being as transformative an action film as Fury Road including TDK (which has other positive traits FR doesn't have). Nor any as much a thinking piece as 2049.
avatar
Might have to put this into a thread. Getting deep for the shout box. Most of those are good to great movies, having seen them all. Except the Johnny English films. I honestly just don't get what people see in those films Smile. I didn't include TDK at 2008 since I considered it outside that timespan
avatar
@MrBrown you can just edit your shout, you click the "E" to the right of your comment.
avatar
@PDB, well I didn't really like Fury Road either. I didn't "hate" it, but I don't think Tom Hardy was the right choice at all. BR2029 was a complete failure for me, just the fact that unlike the original everything is explained to the audience put me off. Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation 2012, Johnny English Reborn 2011, Van Diemen's Land 2009, The Dark Knight 2008, Gomorrah 2008, [Rec] 2007, The Orphanage 2007 https://vimeo.com/204454567 and the Machinist 2004 I would rate as close to perfect. Skyfall 2012, Casino Royale 2006, and Batman Begins 2005 I would rate very highly (and a few other films). Elle 2012 but that's not for everyone lol.
avatar
But, in the edit, and story telling way, it failed to me.
avatar
Scum.
avatar
Optical it was great work... It felt like a big futuristic cyberpunk world, full of mega corps and low life ycum.
avatar
I did not like it... In my opinion the story could have told shorter without loosing much. I really felt bored at the water fighting scene, when the music just made the complete fight dull, boring and too long.
avatar
I wasn't a fan. Whole movie felt kinda tryhard to me.
avatar
I thought it had too many characters, but I still liked BR49, it had some really good scenes and raised interesting questions and themes. It needed some slimming down in the writing phase though. BR seems small and intimate in comparison.
avatar
Probably true but I think we all can agree, although he has brilliant eye, Scott is hardly a good judge of editing Smile
avatar
I think you could cut 40mn out of it and make it way better. Even Ridley Scott says so.
avatar
My mother thought it was "dire".
avatar
But I do understand some of the hate around it. Unlike Fury Road, BR2049 was never going to be a crowd pleaser. In that way, it is very much like the original BR
avatar
I loved it. I came out of the theater feeling like I did after Fury Road. Someone actually pulled off a sequel to a 30 year old film and it worked! (Sorry Tron) Personally, it and Fury Road are the only films I would rate close to perfect in the last 10 years
avatar
What did you guys think of Blade Runner 2029? Personally I HATED it.

According to BD.com users, the Bruce Lee UHDs don't benefit much from the 4k native bump. Also they're SDR and were probably done in that color range ala the Italian Suspiria.
avatar
Looking at the Caps-a-Holic comparison, color aside, Kino has more image on top, right, bottom, and resolution is not bad IMHO...
avatar
Are there problems with Kino AFoD beyond the color-timing? In other words, putting that aside, how does it stack up against previous releases?
avatar
@CSchmidlapp I believe the Bruce Lee films are out on 4k Blu-ray in France. It would be interesting to see if the I'mmagine Ritrovata restorations benefit from the 4k treatment.
avatar
I find that some of the I'mmagine Ritrovata restorations tend to look better on a display with strong backlighting that can bring out more of the color. I must say though, the night scenes look pretty good on the Kino Blu-ray (screens 8, 12 and 13).
avatar
i guessing here a bit but I don't think its a problem with the restorations per say. More the transfer to lower tier media like Bluray. I 'dream' there is a pristine 16bit master behind this uglyness.
avatar
that Kinio AFOD is atrocious
avatar
That looks the same as TGTBATU, that's just terrible
avatar
avatar
Wasn't it remastered by same studio that did A Better Tomorrow that shares same issue?
avatar
It is very green indeed, and I don't know if the mono track isn't simply a fold-down. There is nothing "remastered" about it, the old Italian or German BD are still miles better.
avatar
that the new Kino release of AFOD you're talking about? After the botched TGTBATU release, i decided to stick with my MGM set
avatar
Anyone see the remaster for Fistful of Dollars yet? It looks very, very green.

Hey guys. Does anybody know a online store where I can buy an hdd storage (external/portable) for a good price on this black friday?

avatar
Arrow is the best! Hopefully they will visit the color timing.
avatar
Very Interesting!
avatar
So it looks like Arrow Video are releasing Robocop on BD. Postcard was found in one of their releases today
avatar
Today a very nice day.. sunny.. and about 5 degree celsius.. and I will light up a BBQ today.. hope I do not burn anything down.. Big Grin
avatar
Yay! Coffee... In the morning... The day seems to start very great!
avatar
thanks to both of you
avatar
Yes it's an open forum. They can post in the Presentation forum if they want but they don't have to.
avatar
so just link the site and it's open reg?
avatar
There is no protocol per say. Just have them create a new account.
avatar
there's someone i would like to invite here, but honestly, i have forgotten the protocol regarding that here
avatar
anyone here?

Also, he wasn't exactly healthy, there were cognitive deficiencies not uncommon with men in their 80s. And yeah, at 95, he did live to a ripe old age, but death comes to us all, eventually.
avatar
I think the point Feallan was making was once you are in your 90s, there is no such thing as healthy
avatar
95.
avatar
Well, he was 96...
avatar
I don't understand... I thought he was healthy...

Rest In Peace: Stan Lee (1922 - 2018)

RIP
avatar
He will be missed, always got a good laugh with the cameos, and looked forward to them.
avatar
So sad... I'll miss his cameos... Sad
avatar
RIP Stan Lee

At least, with the Rammstein Shows, you can almost see your money burning at tracks as "Feuer Frei" Smile
avatar
Loved his work on Scarface!
avatar
Giorgio Moroder is great. I love what he did with Metropolis.
avatar
I booked Giorgio Moroder for 2019. I know, totally different... but at least it was cheap Big Grin
avatar
Yeah.. ticket price like from hell... but.. never saw them before live... and I like their shows on BD and DVD...
avatar
@MrBrown I got to see them live last year. It was great (apart from stupid expensive ticket prices and crappy venue).
avatar
Yeah! I am going to see Rammstein live next year! Big Grin
