The Widescreen.org Movie and Media Podcast #201

Twelve years is a long time to wait, but that’s how long it’s taken me to finally – FINALLY! – finish converting my Star Wars “faces” original trilogy laserdiscs to DVD. Even though I’m fully aware of (and already have downloaded) the vastly superior Despecialized Editions as well as the Team Negative 1 30mm scan, this […]

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 […]

He’s one of the more important characters in the original Star Wars. Although his presence on-screen only lasted a few seconds, he role was arguably critical.

I haven’t had a rant like this in a long time, but Pepsi totally, utterly, and completely botched the Pepsi Perfect promo. Frankly, Pepsi should be absolutely ashamed of themselves and whoever was in charge of that campaign should be reprimanded or fired. Yes, I really do believe that and I explain why in the show. […]

I skipped another one. You can always get the show notes on widescreen.org anyway. As much as I would love to go over how stupid America has become with political correctness, I try not to get political in this podcast unless it involves politics as it affects us as consumers; so I will only say that […]

The Widescreen.org Movie and Media Podcast #160

Yep. I skipped another one. I’m kind of stupid that way. Those of you who consider every, little thing about a movie you haven’t seen yet to be a “spoiler” probably won’t like this episode because I rail into that attitude pretty hard — and, yes, I talk about a scene in an unreleased movie. […]

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 […]
