  1. I stumbled on to something cool this afternoon with the Apple TV 4K. Last week I had signed up for MoviesAnywhere to merge iTunes, Vudu, and Amazon purchases. I bought the Smurfs on Vudu over the summer, and my son wanted to watch it again this afternoon. I was curious to see the MoviesAnywhere impact on the iTunes movies, and was surprised to see the HD purchase of the Smurfs in iTunes as the 4K version. I checked some other movies that merged into iTunes, and they are also now in 4K (mostly kids movies). But I was also surprised to see Starship Troopers as one of the upgrades. I included it in a DVD disc to digital HD upgrade on Vudu a while back, and was thinking about picking up the UltraHD Disc, but that's no longer necessary. If anyone with an Apple TV 4K is looking for cheap way to add content, the Vudu app has a barcode reader that lets you add a digital copy of certain blurays for $2.
  2. I loved the part of the movie when the X wings took out the AT ATs. I can't believe I never thought of having those iconic toys of my childhood battle each other, and then seeing it happen on the big screen blew my mind!
  3. Is the power cable on the PS4 Pro the same as the regular PS4? I am hoping to pick up a Pro today, and was wondering if I could just unplug my current Destiny model's cords and swap it out for the Pro without having to move the TV cabinet and crawl around behind it rewiring cables. I already switched the hdmi cable to a new one a month ago when I got my new TV.
  4. I haven't finished watching Jessica Jones yet (only watched 3 episodes so far). Does anything in DDS2 tie in to JJ that I would miss? I have enjoyed both shows, just need to find the time to watch, which is usually only an hour or two a night after my son goes to bed.
  5. It just occurred to me that The Force Awakens is a true Disney movie as it includes the death of a main character's parent.
  6. Thank you for this recommendation. I probably would have skipped over this due to an unassuming bottle and slightly higher price, but decided to take a chance and was pleasantly surprised at how good it is.
  7. Any thoughts on the PS4 version or the XB1 version? I read that they are both supposed to run 1080p/30fps. Mods are supposed to come to XB1 before PS4, and the XB1 will give you a digital copy of Fallout 3 if you preorder. The PS4 will have special controls for Vita remote play. For me, I have sc360 disc copy of Fallout 3 and am intrigued at the idea of playing on the Vita while my son watches Disney/Nick Jr. on the TV, so I am leaning towards the PS4 version.
  8. I think I got the same email, and also have codes to give out for anyone interested.
  9. Vudu lets you covert your existing discs to digital HD copies. $5 for DVD and $2 for blu ray, and if you do 10 at a time, it's 50% off. Many DVDs in my collection were not compatible however.
  10. I have struggled to appreciate Scotch, but do love a good bourbon. My favorites are Woodford Reserve and Four Roses I'd be interested in hearing some Scotch recommendations.
  11. I'm enjoying Marvel's Dark Tower, Star Wars and Darth Vader comics, but am having a hard time getting excited about the "All New All Different" Marvel Universe after Secret Wars ends. I felt the same way with DC after Convergence. I stopped reading Batman and Superman after issue 40 because I didn't like the direction they were going with the characters. The only DC comic I am left reading is Justice League, which is has been great since Forever Evil.
  12. I rented Justice League Gods and Monsters, and thought it was very well done. A very different take on Superman, Batman, and Wonderwoman.
  13. I decided to collect just the Super Mario Amiibos (plus Link) with the goal of having a matching Wiimote and Mario Kart wheel for each character. I finally achieved the goal once I realized Amazon Prime could deliver Yoshi and Toad Wiimotes with free shipping. There is a Wiimote for Bowser too, but he doesn't have a matching wheel. I can't wait for my 3 year old son to get a little older to be able to appreciate the variety he will have when selecting characters.
