The Widescreen.org Movie and Media Podcast #165

  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 […]

The Widescreen.org Movie and Media Podcast #161

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 Podcast #157

I did. I skipped another one. I’m kind of an idiot that way. NOW AVAILABLE THROUGH TUNEIN RADIO !       Show Notes: – FCC filing shows that new Roku players are forthcoming (Update since show: They’re here! More in the next show.) – Samsung’s latest flagship TV to start at $6,500 – That Michael […]

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 […]

Lots of new products were announced at CES 2015, but one of the most exciting for me is that ultra-HD content will soon be available on Blu-ray! Yes, you’ll need a new player to read the 100 GB discs, but this is the big thing that most US households (86% according to Akamai) need to […]

Thew Widescreen.org Movie and Media Podcast #149

I actually managed to get a podcast done not only less than two weeks from the previous one (a miracle in and of itself as of late) but I set my own record by having it done in just over two hours! Hopefully this bodes well for future episodes. In this episodes, Sony got hacked […]

The Widescreen.org Movie and Media Podcast #147

Hello, I’m a total slacker – not by choice, but the fact that I skipped posting the last two podcasts doesn’t bode very well. Regardless… Roku comes to Google TV with a free movie, TV “smooth motion” finds a new enemy, Marvel makes a lot of new movie announcements, Alamo Drafthouse shows their support for 35mm, […]

The Widescreen.org Movie and Media Postcast #144

IT’S RANT TIME! Actually, it’s not a rant as much as it’s putting an arrogant listener (or most likely a “former listener”) in his place. In other news, plasma is effectively dead, high-capacity Blu-rays in 2015 will hold UHD movies, Tivo goes Mega, HBO Go without a cable subscription is getting closer, Guardians of the Galaxy […]

Convert 3D Blu-ray for Roku, Google Cardboard, or Oculus Rift

One of the benefits to Google Cardboard, Oculus Rift, and similar phone-based headsets is stereoscopic 3D. As a big supporter of stereoscopic 3D, I’ve already been playing with converting my 3D Blu-rays – yes, Hollywood, I own them – to side-by-side 3D files that I can play from my Plex server through my Roku onto my 3D TV. […]

The Widescreen.org Movie and Media Podcast #141

Yes! I skipped another one! I admit it! Things happen. I’ve been a busy little boy lately, okay? Anyway, I’m in a really good mood during this show, but there are people out there who really need to shut the hell up. They’re making the rest of humanity look bad. You’ll understand more when you […]
