  1. UHD/4K Disc Thread

    FYI, John Wick is currently $10 on Amazon and Target. Looks great in 4K as well!
  2. What Are You Watching On NETFLIX? (All things Netflix)

    Started Godless and watched the first two episodes. The production and acting are pretty top notch, but the story leaves a bit to be desired; Not very engaging. It's only 7 episodes though, so I'll finish it over the next couple of days.
  3. UHD/4K Disc Thread

    @downzy Hateful Eight was released in two forms in the theater. A 70mm “Roadshow Edition” and the regular theatrical cut. The theatrical cut got the home release, but not the Roadshow Edition. I’m hoping they end up releasing that version as well, but Tarantino can be a stickler when it comes to his films, so we’ll see. I agree with Russ though about the “real/fake” debate. To me, unless the transfer itself is just awful (apparently Terminator 2 is the world 4K yet), that debate is the same as people claiming they can tell the difference between 1080i and 1080p. Technically 1080p is better, but the human eye can’t notice that difference. So as Russ said, anyone claiming to be able to tell the difference between a “real” or fake 4K transfer, is ridiculous. And at the end of the day, it all comes down to how the films were originally shot and how the studios go about upgrading them. Re: Physical media - It’ll never go away, but it’ll certainly shrink more than it already has in stores. People find digital media to be more convenient, and that may be true in some sense, but when it comes to video media, physical releases are better than digital, no argument.
  4. UHD/4K Disc Thread

    I don’t care who you are, streaming content is never the same as watching it on a disc. That said, while not every 4K disc may be “real 4K”, there’s no denying the upgrade in quality on the majority of the releases. The Revenant, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, and Dunkirk (Not my favorite Nolan film, but couldn’t pass on the price I got on it) all look fantastic, and films like the first I almost thought they couldn’t look any better than they did on blu-ray. Sheesh. I thought the same about The Hateful Eight the other day, and just most of Tarantino’s releases in general. Hoping he jumps on it and gets them upgraded and doesn’t hold them back. I’m anticipating Blade Runner 2049 in 4K very much so as well. In terms of consumption, I’ll never pay to own a digital version of something. Netflix is one thing, and that’s different, but if I can own a hard copy, especially when it comes to video media releases, that’s what I’m doing.
  5. Home Theaters

    Got my dad a 4K blu-ray player for Christmas and while I am no stranger to the technology, I was surprised at how much I noticed a difference in the picture quality of 4K movies in the home. We popped in a few movies (The Revenant, The Grinch, Logan, Guardians of the Galaxy 2) and they all looked incredible, to say the least. I figured I would notice a difference of course, but just didn't expect to be as impressed as I was. That said, my dad doesn't even have a 4K TV with HDR or Dolby Vision (he has a Sony 55X810C), and the movies still looked fantastic; Can only imagine how certain movies would look with those features. Which leads me to ask @Powerage5, I remember you mentioning something before about an issue with your 4K TV and 4K blu-rays with HDR - or something? All in all, while I was in no rush to upgrade to 4K capable hardware anytime soon, I've decided I'll likely make the jump by the end of the year.
  6. JUSTICE LEAGUE (2017) Comic-Con Trailer

    It was a gigantic, overproduced, CGI-mess. But it was a fun one. Certainly better than BvS.
  7. "What Movie Did You Watch?" - 2017 Edition

    Dunkirk Movie - 7/10 (Home) Theater Experience - 10/10 Brilliantly shot and the audio was intense; I wish I had gotten to see it in IMAX. That said, I found the story, or at least how it was told through the movie, to be a little lacking. It was a bit slow, but I wouldn’t call it boring per se. But overall I just felt it was fine.
  8. The T.V. Show Thread

    Started Mr. Robot after an old supervisor highly recommended it, and we have very similar tv tastes. Still have plenty of other stuff on the backlogs though.
  9. "What Movie Did You Watch?" - 2017 Edition

    Same director of In Bruges and Seven Psychopaths. I've never seen the former, but Seven Psychopaths is fun, albeit unfocused. This movie was a big step up from that though. Drama, dark humor, and an actual sense of direction; Recommended!
  10. "What Movie Did You Watch?" - 2017 Edition

    Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri 5/5 - Fantastic movie. One of the best I've seen this year. Overall great direction, acting, and story. Hope it gets some Oscar nods.
  11. Josh Homme kicks photographer in the face during show

    I thought I was the only one! Glad to hear. Never cared for him and he seems like a huge douche, honestly. Up there with Maynard. That said, I agree it seems his apology is sincere and he didn't deliberately try to kick this photographer in the face.
  12. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

    The scene I mentioned was the beginning of her starting to care and realize they are more than just money making life forms. As for the logic of going back to the island, that's just splitting hairs as far as I'm concerned. Not many Hollywood sequels out there that don't have questionable motives, so no point in addressing that. re: volcano - who knows. Either they had no idea it had a possibility to erupt, or just a poor look over. Not to sound like an asshole, but it sounds like you're just trying to pick out any and every thing you can about the movie we've seen 2 minutes of footage from This movie looks like a totally different tone than Jurassic World, which is what people cried for after World (despite most people enjoying it). Again, to each their own, I suppose.
  13. New U2 Album 'Songs of Experience' Out Dec. 1st // Tour Starting in May 2018

    NLOTH and Atomic Bomb are more consistent than ATYCLB, but the first half of that album is fantastic; Second half is awful. As for SOE, I'm on board with roughly 75% of the album. Still not really sold on Lights of Home, but it's not terrible. The Showman and Landlady are absolutely dreadful. Love Is All We Have Left is forgettable. Love Is Bigger Than Anything In Its Way could be better if certain lines didn't feel incredibly forced and out of place, but the chorus is good, albeit over produced. 13 is OK, regardless of being unoriginal. I enjoy everything else.
  14. Quentin Tarantino's Star Trek

    Lol, no they're not.
  15. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

    A part of Claire's arc was her caring about them by the end of the movie though. The scene where they see the valley of slaughtered brontosauruses initially starts to show that. I love Jurassic Word, but Fallen Kingdom seems to be more serious in tone, as well as more suspense. Not to mention more use of practical effects and animatronics. Trevorrow is good, but I'm even more pumped that Bayona is directing this one. To each their own I suppose, but I think Fallen Kingdom looks even better. And although the militarized dinos is likely still somewhere in the playbook, the idea of people fighting for "rights" for them and protecting them is a pretty good idea to me. If it was reality, there would certainly be people doing just that, so it's no surprise that they're going that route for some of the story in this movie.
