  1. A thread about Lego

    Oh my. That'd be twice the price of the Saturn V, surely? ...yes I'd buy it.
  2. Sgt Pepper in mono is best Sgt Pepper.
  3. UHD (4k) Blu-ray Discussion Thread

    Interestingly, while both ended up being HDR10 presentations in the end, a handful with both versions have said the international Sony disc nevertheless exhibits more shadow detail than the Warner disc. The Warner and Sony editions definitely seem to be different masters and encodes as others have said the Sony version also retains more of the camera sensor noise and doesn’t exhibit minor banding as the Warner encode supposedly does, while the Warner disc instead crushes blacks to give the look a bit of a contrast boost (which actually conflicts with Deakins’ preference as in interviews he has spoke of not wanting inky blacks). The Warner disc has a 10,000nit container vs 4000 on the Sony, however the film apparently only hits peaks of around 181nits on the Warner disc (which sounds about right for Deakins and his self confessed conservative approach to HDR. Sicario’s UHD is similar, and 181 is only a smidge more than theatrical HDR can display effectively making both faithful to the theatrical grade), so not even OLEDs have to tone map the HDR with this one and can display it natively (so really any benefit of DV on this would likely have been presentation of a 12bit downconversion). The Dolby Vision master would be a seperate grade to the HDR10 master which might explain why you’re seeing more shadow detail in the stream as it sounds like the black levels are more like those on the Sony disc and Warner opted to adjust the black levels on their UHD for some reason.
  4. It's definitely going to be a disc that I will be envious of projector owners over.

  6. Netflix members...

    What's the word on that anime Godzilla that Netflix have?
  7. Time for an Updated Gamertag List

    Buy us all copies of Splatoon then.
  8. UHD (4k) Blu-ray Discussion Thread

    13th of March w/Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision
  9. The table top robot wars concept in the Telegraph hands-on really made me smile.
  10. It occurs to me that the robot kit might as well be your own Pacific Rim Jaeger.
  11. Telegraph hands-on: More below: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/gaming/features/nintendo-labo-hands-on-switch-brilliant-barmy-cardboard-toys/
  12. The Variety Kit is $70, and the Robot Kit is $80. Not sure on UK pricing yet. Guardian article: https://www.theguardian.com/games/2018/jan/17/nintendo-labo-cardboard-switch-models-interactive-toys The fishing rod is brilliant. Give us a Bass Fishing port, SEGA (along with the Samba de Amigo port I keep dreaming about). DIY accessories, that are effectively recyclable given the materials, is an brilliant progressive concept following an era of plastic add-ons that end up gathering dust.
  13. UHD (4k) Blu-ray Discussion Thread

    They're only coming as two-pack set in the UK for the time being which is irritating (US gets individual releases). I'm not especially fond of the first one, but I liked 10 Cloverfield Lane. The second film also has Dolby Atmos, incidentally.
