4K restoration on Star Wars

AFAIK, the ‘vault’ strategy only applies to a relatively small (and defined) collection of classic animated films. Those movies that we see coming out in ‘Diamond’ and ‘Platinum’ editions and so forth.

Their other strategy is, of course, to simply not bother transferring movies that they don’t think will sell. Black Cauldron, anyone? (On another note the complete, uncensored director’s cut of that movie still hasn’t been seen by the public).

Maybe this is where the OUT falls. But really, who knows?

There was an uncensored director’s cut of The Black Cauldron?
Maybe the OT will be released after Disney decides to release SOTS & The Black Cauldron Uncensored DC on Bluray.

Video Games - a general discussion thread

I like RetroUSB’s AVS system. It’s awesome for playing real carts of NES & FAMICOM in 720p HD. It’s FPGA, which emulates the original NES Hardware. You can also connect the Famicom Disk System too. It’s a ‘cheaper’ alternative, than getting the Hi-Def NES upgrade on your still functional original NES. However, it can’t play Zapper games, since it only has an HDMI output.

If you have 500 bones, you can buy the Analogue NT mini, which can play Zapper games, due to having all the different outputs.

Last movie seen
  • Fast and the Furious 8 or: How I started calling it F8, because of Keyboard function keys (2017) = Same old shit, more sequels coming.

  • Planes, Trains & Automobiles (1987) = A funny buddy film. Great classic comedians, many quotable lines.

  • Goon: Last of the Enforcers (2017) = Wanted to see the sequel. It was as bloody as the first one. As a fellow Canadian, I like my hockey movies.

  • A Fish Called Wanda (1988) = A funny heist comedy film. Great cast, including 2 Monty Pythons. It’s a C-C-C-Classic!

  • John Wick 2 (2017) = Continues the story and increases the action & violence. A fun movie.

  • The Circle (2017) = All Social Media companies combined into 1 behemoth, and trying to control the world. Something Cobra tried to do in every single episode of G.I. Joe.

  • Going In Style (2017) = It remains pretty faithful to the original from 1979, with some alterations. Great choice of cast, but nothing beats the original trio: George Burns, Art Carney & Lee Strasberg.

  • The Hitman’s Bodyguard (2017) = A funny action/buddy film, where both Renolds & Jackson play off each other.

Hmm, that could be the movie I’m thinking about. If it is, I’ve grossly misremembered its sequence of events.


It’s possible I conflated Blackbeard’s Ghost with this episode of Are You Afraid of the Dark? Truly wonderful, the mind of a child is.

Ah, ‘Are You Afraid of the Dark’, another Canadian staple. YTV was great back in the day.
