The Widescreen.org Movie and Media Podcast #189

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 […]

The previous weekend certainly was interesting. I did see Batman v Superman and frankly – I liked it! No, it wasn’t a fantastic movie, but it wasn’t awful either. What I do find more intriguing is the fact that the critics hated the movie, and I’m convinced that they hate the public for liking the movie. […]

How to add forced subtitles to Blu-ray .mkv files

(I write this article in total defiance of the idiots at the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) as well as Advanced Access Content System (AACS LA) for shutting down SlySoft, the makers of DVD and Blu-ray ripper AnyDVD HD, which as usual has been accused of being a pirating tool regardless of its beneficial […]

  Yay! I missed putting up info for #164. This is not surprising at this point. :/ In this episode The Fantastic Four blame game has started with Josh Trank implying that Fox is responsible for its failure, Sony’s upcoming lineup isn’t inspiring, Monty Python and the Holy Grail is coming back to theaters, Ready Player One […]

As much as I love film for its ubiquity, permanence (when stored properly), and overall quality, it’s not a miracle drug. One cinematographer acts like it is and then has the misfortune of bringing video games into the argument. Oh, dear. That’s a bad idea when I’m around. Now you know my rant for this […]

The Widescreen.org Movie and Media Postcast #155

Yes, I skipped a few episodes here. Sorry about that; however, you should be checking out my official podcast site or subscribing through iTunes anyway. (I’m working on adding more streaming options for those who don’t like or can’t run iTunes.) Also, I’ve decided that I’m going to start posting show notes here as well as on widescreen.org […]
