The Widescreen.org Movie and Media Podcast #200

Believe it or not, I’ve actually reached show #200! Who would have thought that it’s possible with only five or six listeners! (Okay, maybe seven.) I release this on the day of some big sports thingy that’s going on because – believe it or not – there are many of us who don’t give a […]

The Widescreen.org Movie and Media Podcast #199

Well, folks, that’s it. As far as the TV manufacturers are concerned, 3D TV is dead. Frankly, I’m not surprised. I’ve been calling people out for a few years now for what I knew would be the death knell for 3D TV. It turns out that I was right on almost every count. Everything that […]

The Widescreen.org Movie and Media Podcast #195

I will admit that I’m a bit more rant-y in this podcast than others, but between the election, the reactions from idiots on both sides, and other things, I guess I needed to vent via my own impeccable logic and common sense. You’ll understand why the title of this particular episode is “Stupid People Doing […]

The Widescreen.org Movie and Media Podcast #190

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 […]

The Widescreen.org Movie and Media Podcast #166

Yes, people have actually named their kids “Anakin”. So … they want their kids to grow up to be a dark lord who slaughters children younglings? Really? Some people apparently need to stop breeding. Anyway, I’m back with some new gear, Fantastic Four is a fantastic flop with fantastic rumors, Disney’s D23 expo releases lots of movie […]

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 […]

How To Play “Grand Theft Auto V” (PC) in 3D

If you’ve followed my podcast or read other articles here, you should know that I love 3D. Unlike the 3D haters who arrogantly want it to go away for everyone just because they don’t like it, I want it to be an option. If you want to use it, great! If you don’t, that’s your […]

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 […]

Hollywood Continues To Ruin Its Own Home 3D Market

As the end of the year approaches, the annual articles continue to pop up that reflect on the past year, whether the topic is video games, movies, TV, or what have you. In the same way I decided to look up the highest box office numbers for 2014.  For just the US box office, the […]

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 […]
