The 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 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 […]

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.

The 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 […]

The Movie and Media Podcast #137

Yep. I skipped it again. I’m starting to feel like a typewriter that’s missing some keys. (You young’uns do know what a typewriter is, don’t you?) Godzilla dominates its opening weekend, Batman v Superman gets official, you can win a chance to be in the new Star Wars movie, the original trilogy might finally) be […]

The Movie and Media Podcast #134

Whoops, I think I did it again and skipped listing the previous podcast here. I blame having three kids because they do things to your mind. Anyway, Amazon enters the streaming hardware market, Captain America 2 breaks records all over, the MPAA are narrow-minded hypocrites (not that we didn’t know that already), Christopher Nolan defends film […]

The Widescreen.Org Movie and Media Podcast #132

It’s time for the world’s biggest popularity contest! The Oscars have arrived and … and … pfft. Whatever. it’s the biggest of the big backslapping sessions.  Oh, and I caught a head and chest cold, so the podcast is a bit rougher than usual. The world mourns the death of Harold Ramis, Disney launches hundreds […]

The Movie and Media Podcast #127

Yes, I know. I seem to keep skipping the even numbers when I post my podcast here, but I assure you that they’re all there! In the latest podcast… Xbox One HDMI pass-through is broken although Microsoft (of course) tries to downplay that, my brief thoughts on Thor: The Dark World, UHD TV found on Amazon for […]
