  1. UHD (4k) Blu-ray Discussion Thread

    Sam Rami's The Quick and the Dead is apparently now listed on Sony's press site for UHD release in July. That's.... random. I'm not complaining as at the very least it is another sign of Sony breaking away from anniversary and sequel excuses to put out catalogue titles, but... yeah.

    That's why I am eager for Minority Report and A.I UHDs. Those will be beautiful grainfests (Pvt Ryan goes without saying).
  3. UHD (4k) Blu-ray Discussion Thread

    Well, it was Spielberg's second film with Kaminski and the start of their "hey what if we exacerbate the grain a little" relationship.
  4. UHD (4k) Blu-ray Discussion Thread

    The Equalizer appears to be coming on the 10th of July from Sony to cash in on the sequel. Unsane will be released by Universal on 19th of June. I thought that was a Fox release in the US like it is in the UK but was mistaken (good to see a studio put out a small film as so far Fox have been the most consistent on that front). I'm curious to see if it gets a UK disc. Sodebergh shot this on iPhones.
  5. Blu-Ray General Discussion Part 3

    Dreamworks are doing an anniversary remaster of Prince of Egypt later this year. I hope it finally leads to a Blu-ray release. No word on that front yet.
  6. I'd love it if some thoughtful, Ghibli-esque, animation projects were born out of the partnership.
  7. UHD (4k) Blu-ray Discussion Thread

    It's quite possibly because the opening titles and Isla Sorna location title may have been optically printed, which would explain it (same reason title sequences on discs like Groundhog Day and other 90s movie discs are often grainier than the rest of the movie).
  8. Del Toro has also inked a deal furthering his existing TV relationship with Dreamworks that will now see him write, produce and direct animated features. https://www.cartoonbrew.com/animators/guillermo-del-toro-joins-dreamworks-animation-in-exclusive-deal-to-write-direct-and-produce-films-157948.html

    Grain is good.
  10. UHD (4k) Blu-ray Discussion Thread

    It should have been. It being updated to the new restoration on iTunes last month was how we got early word on the restoration and the audio before the disc reviews (though the update I think lacked HDR, or maybe it was just the 1080p updated to the new restoration until next week?).
  11. UHD (4k) Blu-ray Discussion Thread

    My copy of Grease arrived this morning! Saving it to spin in its entirety tomorrow evening to help me relax before running the marathon on Sunday, but I skimmed it and it looks really promising (it has Dolby Vision as expected).
  12. UHD (4k) Blu-ray Discussion Thread

    Press release notes that the disc will have Dolby Vision, and in a rare move for Universal it will also have Dolby Atmos.
  13. Sent. Last Jedi still available. My next few US codes will be in May.
  14. Have a code for Spielberg's 'The Post' up for grabs. Last Jedi still available too.
  15. Drop a Ton Challenge 2010

    My Fitness Pal is such a godsend (love how I can link it up with my Garmin too. The Garmin app is kind of like a hub for me now as it culls info from MFP, and directs info back out to Runkeeper and Strava so I don't really need to keep fiddling with multiple apps anymore). I was cutting my calories too much earlier in the year during my first month and a half into marathon training. Upped them by a few hundred and the weight began to fall off me nicely. I'm roughly back down to the best I've been in my adult life (about 170), but it's interesting seeing and feeling a difference, even though it's a weight I have hit before, due to consistently running four times a week for the last eighteen weeks. I didn't go in to training expecting to lose much, and I knew trying to lose too much would be counter productive, so I've lost about 12lbs gradually since Christmas which I am happy with, so the next step will really be to shift some attention to lifting weights to build up muscle mass and melt off the last 12lbs or so that I've just never been able to get rid of. Post-marathon it seems like the next big goal to set myself, then I can really start testing my physicality in future running events. I'm gradually upping my carb intake today and tomorrow, with further top ups on Friday and Saturday (my freezer is about ready to burst for all the bagels). I'm not abiding by my caloric deficit over the next few days as I wan't to make sure I am eating enough, but not so much more than I am used to as to throw my whole body and digestive system into a panic. So I'll be upping the calories a little closer to a maintenance level between now and Sunday morning. Hopefully that'll work. I'll be running with energy gels too. When I ran 20m in training I felt ok after, and had a 3.5mile walk home from where I finished so hopefully I won't hit a wall on Sunday. I am hoping to find a pace runner and stick to them, and it'll be for a time that's around a minute slower than my race pace as I just wan't to get round comfortably and get a sense of what I am capable off.
