The Widescreen Podcast #215

Believe it or not, the time has finally come and the new widescreen.org has been unleashed! It’s not perfect, but it’s leaps and bounds better than what it used to be. It’s HTML5 compliant, there is no Flash requirement (or –groan– Real Player or whatever), the video segments are now all on YouTube, and audio […]

I’ve obviously survived my trip to Canada and around the Great Lakes! It turned out to be way more amazing than I thought it would be. I can honestly say that I’m really excited about the future of the site right now. My poor widescreen.org has been hurting for a long time, living in the […]

I figured that the cost of really large TVs was more because of the “luxury” factor, but as it turns out the prices might really be due to the laws of supply and demand. But if you’re looking for 55-65″ TV prices to drop like they have for 40-47″ TVs, you’ve got several years to […]

Regrettably, the “spoiler!!!” whiners are at it again. This time their anger is pointed towards Sony for the latest Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer that shows a situation where Spider-Man loses his suit. Let’s completely ignore that trailers often show material that doesn’t show up in the movie, that the trailer’s context can be completely misleading, and that […]

Twelve years is a long time to wait, but that’s how long it’s taken me to finally – FINALLY! – finish converting my Star Wars “faces” original trilogy laserdiscs to DVD. Even though I’m fully aware of (and already have downloaded) the vastly superior Despecialized Editions as well as the Team Negative 1 30mm scan, this […]

The XBOX One S and NVIDIA Shield TV will support newer audio codecs, Ultra HD TVs will be the majority of the market by 2020, Tim Miller leaves Deadpool 2 over creative differences, Assassin’s Creed gets a worldwide December 21 release date, James Gunn is NOT doing Tron 3, Aquaman will have the heart of a swashbuckler […]

Sony has made one of the biggest blunders they could have possibly made by not including an UltraHD  Blu-ray player with the upcoming PlayStation 4 Pro. Considering that the significantly weaker XBox One S is cheaper and has a UHD BD player included, Sony could not have possibly made a dumber mistake. Last year, Akamai, […]

2016 is being ruthless. It’s showing absolutely no mercy. Since the first few weeks in January, 2016 has been taking away beloved and legendary entertainers. Unfortunately, that streak continues with the death of Gene Wilder. We all grew up with Willy Wonka and even those who don’t particularly like the movie know enough of it to […]

I’m fed up with critics almost more than I can bear. I really have no idea what those people want from movies anymore. Look at the critics vs the audience for movies like Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad. The difference between what each of those groups of people want in movies is staggering, and – once again […]
