I’m really wanting to pick up the new BD reissue to finally see this. It’s supposedly the Fox BD with the dvd extras added.
Does the HD master make any changes that we know of or is it relatively fine?

To me it looks better but maybe just me. Why it’s $20 I dunno.

Just finished the 2nd season of Peaky Blinders - a UK crime drama set in 1920s Birmingham, England in the aftermath of World War I. The series follows the exploits of the Shelby crime family, a gang who sew razor blades in the peaks of their caps (hence the title), under the guide of fierce boss Tommy Shelby.

Pretty decent tv with some welcome twists and surprises along the way - if you can get past the accents 😉
 

I should watch more Peaky Blinders. Only watched the first 6 episodes and I should watch more.

Finished watching Westworld Season 2 and gave it back to my friend. Now to finish the last of Humans Series 3.

Been considering giving Altered Carbon another go, interested in Man in the High Castle, ought to complete Fargo Season 3, and own on Blu-ray disc original Twin Peaks. The latter imported from the UK. Figure on rewatching the show, been more than a decade, before watching the revival series. Might do a rewatch of Scrubs sometime.

My buddy Godzilla has been
a symbol of the horrors of nuclear war
a campy Earth saving hero
a symbol for environmental protection
a mindless, lost and scared creature
a reminder of the atrocities of war
a threat that must be dealt with
a protector worthy of praise
a spotlight on a stodgy government
and much more!
He’s the best!

Even when he’s a giant fish-eating iguana?

Zilla doesn’t count.

Oh sure, now he doesn’t. Convenient retcon much?

😉

GODZILLA: Final Wars would like to say some stuff about it.

After months of waiting and several delays, I finally received the 4K Blu-ray of 2001: A Space Odyssey. The set and transfer are absolutely beautiful. Highly recommend for fans of the film and movie lovers in general.

I’m still keeping the original Blu-ray disc because it has PCM audio.

But the UHD has that same mix (and the 1968 six-track mix) in lossless DTS-HD, so there’s no difference…? 🤔

PCM is uncompressed (bitrate really high) and DTS-HD MA is lossless. Yeah the UHD and the Blu-ray disc with it are better.

Recently watched all 67 current episodes of Game of Thrones. Need extensive spoiler tags.

As mentioned in the Game of Thrones thread, I received the Season 1-7 UK Blu-ray disc boxset as an awesome Christmas present. Hadn’t watched any episode at all beforehand, watched all episodes from the discs, currently waiting for Season 8 (Final) this April and the spin-off series.

No idea if I want to play the GoT Telltale game. I’m not a fan of the company and I guess it’s set before Season Six.

Now I’m watching Humans Series 3 and then Westworld Season 2. Both on Blu-ray disc but borrowed from a friend.

Have on Blu-ray disco this show, all 7 seasons from the UK in the cool boxset as a Christmas present. Have never watched this before, decided to watch the episodes first and then the bonus features. Watched all the episodes of course. Wondering why the set has both the DOLBY ATMOS and DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 options when only ATMOS is the one chosen in the menu and remote? Yeah, I chose the DOLBY ATMOS option, of course.

Waiting for Season 8 this April and the eventual Blu-ray disco release. Even trying to figure out a way to get the content from the exclusive bonus Blu-ray discs from all 7 seasons. Is it Preservation if it’s exlusive content? I could list what it is for each season, maybe.

One of my new favourite shows and glad I waited for more show to watch as per the boxset.
