avatar
Does that video include them losing the original audio?

Insight of how Warner Bros restored Wizard of Oz https://youtu.be/yIZ3AlKguIs
avatar
People keep paying to see all these reboots and remakes. All they're doing is feeding the monster. Once Disney+ sinks its teeth in, dark times are ahead

Richard Stanley is back! Doing Lovecraft! With Nicolas Cage! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=agnpaFLo0to
avatar
And I think I know how: stage a mass protest at Disneyland!
avatar
We've got to stop them!
avatar
@willarob yeah saw that. Already noticed that there a no fox titles on the line up at The Prince Charles Cinema in London.

Fox films disappearing into Disney's Vault? https://www.vulture.com/amp/2019/10/disn...vault.html

Hulu gets the R rated stuff
avatar
I hate what Disney has become in the last few decades. I just hope they will crash and burn and be bought up by someone who actually cares about cinema. Or maybe get a better CEO that turns it around, though that's doubtful. They are a true disgrace.
avatar
R rated films won't be on Disney+ so they will be gone
avatar
It's a bit shouty at first, but there are some good points here and there
avatar
avatar
I saw an interesting opinion piece about how Disney's endgame is cutting out theatres entirely and having everything on Disney+
avatar
As every joke it's supposed to convey something serious. By blocking classics R rated films from being shown, not having them on Disney+ and not having them on video anymore, Disney eliminates the competition, and the door is open for all movies to be family theme park rides film. The extinction of cinema is coming.
avatar
It was a joke LOL
avatar
@Stamper. That's what PDB already said, he didn't say anything about theme park rides, not sure why you brought that up.
avatar
PDB you mean That's a terrible blow for people who love seeing films on the big screen instead of theme park rides. LOL
avatar
The disney vault was a pet peeve of mine as a kid, I dont see that philosphy driving up demand.
avatar
I don't think this was TCF's fault! They were made to do it!
avatar
Knowing companies like 20th Century FOX and Disney this isn't really surprising. They do shady things all the time
avatar
I don't get it.
avatar
@Chewtobacca. I had to google! Hahahahahahahahaha
avatar
Luchtigern is fallen.
avatar
@Disney. But.....why?
avatar
I knew it! They're trying to stunt our intellectual growth. Keep us in FIELDS!!
avatar
That's a terrible blow for people who love seeing older films on the big screen
avatar
avatar
Looks like Disney is putting older Fox movies in the vault, so repertory theaters can no long show Alien, Fight Club, Predator, Sound of Music, Die Hard, Kiss of Death, Laura, Fallen Angel, you name it
avatar
Wizard of Oz 4K BD a distinct upgrade over the previous BD. negligable cropping, but the color and sharpness are much better and make the old BD look like VHS. No mono mix at all though.
avatar
My monitor.
avatar
A projector.
avatar
hey everyone, was wondering what are you guys using for televisions?
avatar
Oh, Christ! Richard Williams is dead, and nobody told me?!
avatar
Well toy say "not convincing" but I had never noticed. I thought it was the same actor. Sad
avatar
Crispin Glover is one of the maestros.
avatar
Yeah, they had another actor wear prosthetics, but it wasn't very convincing: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-I5Hln4riaME/UC...issman.jpg
avatar
I never knew this! Crispin Glover isn't in BTTF2, his likeness used without permission: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j-gM7hbHZNs
avatar
Was an open-matte version of "Ed Wood" ever released?
avatar
There was a DVD release from the Warner Archive, and I see a few Lasersdiscs on Ebay.
avatar
There's a release on rutracker but it's tagged and seems to be sourced from a VHS or an old SATrip
avatar
Does anybody know where I could find "What Price Hollywood" (1932) in a good quality? There's still no Blu-ray available and I'm having no luck finding a HDTV release or even a DVDrip... gosh
avatar
So just everything
avatar
Lol!
avatar
avatar
has much changed here since 2018? finally got back online
avatar
You don't suppose...?
avatar
We're all in the same boat it seems. Undecided
avatar
Well if you do hear from him or email him, tell Poita i need to talk to him ASAP. He hasn't answered my pms in quite some time..
avatar
I've had intermittent email contact, but nothing for the past two weeks. Only other person I can contact about him isn't responding to texts.
avatar
He couldn't have, he hasn't been on since 08-13 and hasn't posted for almost 2 months.
avatar
I thought he posted something the other week.
avatar
Does anybody have another line of contact with Poita? Would be nice to know he is o.k.
avatar
Yeah he's been MIA for just about 2 months now.
avatar
Has anyone been in contact with Poita recently? I'm worried about him. Sad
avatar
quite interesting twitter thread about japanese dubs for kubrick's FMJ and eyes wide shut https://twitter.com/Cowboy_Dev/status/11...3265847297
avatar
There are "talks" which sent twitter a-stormin'. Even Cary Elwes had his say.
avatar
Wait, The Princess Bride is being remade?!
avatar
Talks of a Princess Bride remake are getting quite the backlash on twitter. A pretty unlikely "step too far" for the trend IMO.
avatar
Wow I didn't even know the glass was CGI. Nice effects work they did. The CGI in the motorcycle chase was pretty obvious though. Maybe that could have been possible doing it practical? I don't know
avatar
john wick 3 CGI glass work... nuts! https://vimeo.com/359429820
avatar
Hey guys, don't know if this is the best place to ask, but where can i find the finished projects to see them?
avatar
Maybe it only works in the U.S.?
avatar
Link not working for me
avatar
avatar
@Stamper I hope so. But for some reason people want to ignore 2 which is silly to me. Not as good as 1 but still really good. And I like the suit better in 2
avatar
Would love Robocop 2 but with the deleted scene (maybe an extended version as a bonus?)
avatar
Now all we need is an Ernest Goes To Jail blu ray with the tv ending included lol
avatar
avatar
It only has selected scenes from the TV i thought
avatar
One of the discs even has the TV version! EPIC.
avatar
It looks pretty definative.
avatar
Me too!!! Happy about 1 tho, looking essential
avatar
I wish RoboCop 2 could also get a release from Arrow
avatar
Ive only just heard about the upcoming Arrow Video UK release of Robocop! Looks awesome Smile
avatar
It was a live thing from Reading but its only up for like another 25 days and i think i figured it out but could not get it working
avatar
to be honest, I use it for radio stuff, usually available right away. video is unavailable for my region, so I wouldn't know. I've read somewhere it takes a several days for some TV stuff to be available for dl
avatar
Figured it out but it wont find the ting i want to download, thanks anyway Smile
avatar
cdm line! well that gives me something to do tomorrow!
avatar
thanks
avatar
@dvdmike get_iplayer
avatar
Any one know of a way to rip stuff from BBC iplayer?
avatar
the sequels are not bad, I loved them!!!
avatar
Based on the films being universaly panned LOL
avatar
Based on what?
avatar
LOL 200% sure they will retcon part 2 & 3
avatar
^ Agreed.
avatar
^ It's really not obvious. The only thing we know about this new Matrix film is that we don't know anything
avatar
Nope it's just me assuming they will go that route. It's obvious.
avatar
@Lotto. I assume that events that happened in Matrix Online are canon. They could easily refer to it like 'The Clone Wars' in Star Wars.
avatar
@Stamper. Is that official?
avatar
It's a follow up to the first. They do this often these day like Halloween of Terminator Dark Crap
avatar
I remember that Morpheus is killed in MxO. Don't know if the game is still considered canon.
avatar
IIRC, The Matrix Online had Neo existing in the Matrix, so he could still be physically dead in the real world. I don't see how they would bring Trinity back though.
avatar
avatar
@nirbateman. The Matrix Rebooted.
avatar
@Stamper. Ouch lol.
avatar
The Evil Dead coming back to theater with a new 5.1 mix - still no original mono Tongue http://www.evildeadnews.com/2019/08/grin...d.html?m=1
