The Widescreen Podcast #218

Yes, it’s been a while, but it’s possible (and I do stress possible) that things will be looking up for the podcast shortly, the reason for which I explain in the show. And as much as I hate Black Friday (and I do apologize to the world for that horrible export), I actually was able to get […]

The Widescreen Podcast #215

Believe it or not, the time has finally come and the new widescreen.org has been unleashed! It’s not perfect, but it’s leaps and bounds better than what it used to be. It’s HTML5 compliant, there is no Flash requirement (or –groan– Real Player or whatever), the video segments are now all on YouTube, and audio […]

The Widescreen.org Movie and Media Podcast #214

I’m really hoping that this is the last podcast before the big Widescreen.org overhaul. It’s actually done except for one page where I’m trying to use a function that my web hosting company hasn’t updated since the Jurassic. They’ve been told about it and they’ve started to make some upgrades, but I’d like to wait […]

The Widescreen.org Movie and Media Podcast #211

I’ve obviously survived my trip to Canada and around the Great Lakes! It turned out to be way more amazing than I thought it would be. I can honestly say that I’m really excited about the future of the site right now. My poor widescreen.org has been hurting for a long time, living in the […]

The Widescreen.org Movie and Media Podcast #207

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 […]

The Widescreen.org Movie and Media Podcast #206

I realize that my opinions of her don’t matter at all, but I’m really fed up with Kathleen Kennedy’s blind loyalty to George Lucas. He does not own Star Wars any more. He sold the properties – lock, stock, and barrel – to Disney. The Star Wars franchise is no longer his to control. Yet because of […]

The Widescreen.org Movie and Media Podcast #205

As much as I hate “SPOILER!” whiners, I also hate clickbait. Unfortunately, when The Last Jedi teaser released that gave web sites a huge excuse to throw up clickbait articles. Seriously, folks – install an ad browser and whitelist those sites that you support and don’t give clickbait titles, like this one and widescreen.org. Enough is […]

The Widescreen.org Movie and Media Podcast #204

Regrettably, the “spoiler!!!” whiners are at it again. This time their anger is pointed towards Sony for the latest Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer that shows a situation where Spider-Man loses his suit. Let’s completely ignore that trailers often show material that doesn’t show up in the movie, that the trailer’s context can be completely misleading, and that […]

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 […]

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 […]
