The Widescreen.org Movie and Media Podcast #196

I’m nowhere near as rant-y as I was in the last podcast. I’m finally finishing my 10+ year project to convert my original Star Wars laserdiscs to DVD — you know, the originals where Han shoots first, Jabba isn’t seen until Jedi, and Hayden Christensen is not the ghost of Anakin Skywalker? Yeah, those. And considering that the […]

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 […]

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 #148

Somehow we ended up with a bit of a short show this time. Of course, that’s what happens when Chrome blows up and the RSS plugin that I was using decides to crash with it. Disney tries for device ubiquity, Miyazaki comes to Blu-ray, fourth Toy Story film on the way, Episode VII title is somewhat […]

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 Podcast #143

Oh, yeah! There’s a lot of white powder around my studio. It’s probably not what you think it is, though. The biggest news is that the unaltered, original Star Wars trilogy is likely to be heading to Blu-ray in 2015! This is fantastic news for those of us who hold the pre-Special Editions so dearly. The […]

O Captain! My Captain! rise up and hear the bells… I say goodbye to two Hollywood legends, Best Buy is about to shove UHD TV awareness in your face, Guardians and TMNT makes lots of money on their opening weekends, Babylon 5 will return, Batman V. Superman will no longer contend with Captain America 3, Martin Scorsese makes the case to keep […]

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 […]
