Sony has made one of the biggest blunders they could have possibly made by not including an UltraHD  Blu-ray player with the upcoming PlayStation 4 Pro. Considering that the significantly weaker XBox One S is cheaper and has a UHD BD player included, Sony could not have possibly made a dumber mistake. Last year, Akamai, […]

To hell with that idiotic football game or the inconsiderate followers of said football game who can’t resist flooding everyone’s Facebook and Twitter feeds when they should be watching the f**king game instead; and to hell with The Walking Dead, too. (Yes, I went there.) It’s DEADPOOL MONTH! Oh, right, there’s a romance-related thing this month, too. […]

I skipped another one. Oy. So be it. You really should be subscribing on iTunes, TuneIn, or on various Android podcast apps anyway. Just sayin’…. Anyway, Mark Hamill loves his secrets, Sony surprises the world by stopping Betamax tape production, more UHD Blu-rays are announced, lots of Furious movies are on the way, MST3K returns, I […]

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. […]

Terminator Genisys has jumped the shark and the movie isn’t even out yet. I explain why in the show, but I just can’t imagine how anyone thought this new plot line was a good thing. It’s really bizarre, and I fear that the reboot is doomed before it even starts. Show notes: – A new, […]

I did. I skipped another one. I’m kind of an idiot that way. NOW AVAILABLE THROUGH TUNEIN RADIO !       Show Notes: – FCC filing shows that new Roku players are forthcoming (Update since show: They’re here! More in the next show.) – Samsung’s latest flagship TV to start at $6,500 – That Michael […]

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 […]

I know, I know. I skipped another one. Hopefully this new year will bring a new need for me to get a post when a new show is done. Then again, no one sees this blog anyway, so it probably doesn’t matter. Anyway, I give what will hopefully be the only roundup of The Interview […]
