I figured that the cost of really large TVs was more because of the “luxury” factor, but as it turns out the prices might really be due to the laws of supply and demand. But if you’re looking for 55-65″ TV prices to drop like they have for 40-47″ TVs, you’ve got several years to […]

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 […]

What the hell, 2016? What is your gripe against British entertainment legends who are at or near 69 years old? Did England wrong you in a previous year or something? Knock it off! [EDIT: Only a few hours after posting this, we learned that Glenn Frey, guitarist and founding member of The Eagles has died. This […]

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 […]

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 #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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

The Widescreen.org 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 […]
