I was never a fan of the Popeye animated shorts. More WB fare. But I do recall seeing them on TV. Initially, in glorious black & white, and later in color, presumably from 16mm Eastman syndication prints. And there was never anything special about them. It’s taken half a century, […]
As CES fast approaches, we’ll be covering several stories of AV interest as we see them. One of the first out of the gate with announcements is Dusun Electron Ltd. who will be demonstrating an Android TV remote control and gamepad at the 2019 show in Las Vegas. The remote […]
I’m curious about this collection. I wonder what the quality would be. Some of these titles are pretty good. Escape in the Fog is a fun B-Noir. I also wonder about a volume 2. http://www.amazon.com/Noir-Archive-Volume-1-1944-1954-Blu-ray/dp/B07KZ4MW2C?SubscriptionId=AKIAIY4YSQJMFDJATNBA&tag=bluray-010-20&linkCode=xm2&camp=2025&creative=165953&creativeASIN=B07KZ4MW2C&m=ATVPDKIKX0DER
Do you believe in fate? That there is one person we are destined to be with? Preston Meyers (Joel Embry) does. Ever since Amanda Beckett (Jennifer Love Hewitt) first came to his school the universe has been sending him signals that she is THE ONE. And tonight is his big […]
As the proud new owner of a 4K projector, I found myself afflicted with a unique challenge. How to get a 4K 60Hz signal over 45 feet from my AV processor to my projector. Conventional copper cables from Monoprice and Blue Jeans Cable had already failed to work at this […]

JL Audio has launched an 8-inch version of its Fathom IWS in-wall subwoofer system with an additional enclosure option for in-ceiling applications. The 8-inch Fathom IWS and ICS systems join a previous model, with a 13.5-inch driver, in the Fathom IWS lineup, and MSRPs range from $2,300 – $3,500. Both […]
I cannot for my life understand why WHITE HUNTER BLACK HEART and BRONCO BILLY (plus maybe one or two others) have remained unreleased on Blu-ray. I’d have thought his entire WB catalog would have long ago gone to Blu. This guy has earned you more money than just about anyone, […]
Smallfoot turns the Bigfoot (or more precisely, the Abominable Snowman) legend on its ear in this entertaining, family-friendly animated comedy musical from the director of Over the Hedge.
Five early Rankin/Bass Christmas Television Specials (four classic, one not so much) have been re-issued on Blu-ray with some new special features.
Barry Sonnenfeld’s Big Trouble is an underappreciated comedy gem that does for Miami what Sonnenfeld’s Get Shorty does for Hollywood. Tim Allen leads a tremendous ensemble cast that keeps the plot moving and the jokes flying.
The Night Stalker comes to Blu Ray from Kino from a 4K scan that makes this ever popular tv movie look better now than it did when first broadcast in 1972. It’s hard to imagine that it was first shown on ABC over 45 years ago! It was the only […]
After a number of his popular novels were adapted for the screen, with varying degrees of success, famed horror writer Stephen King went in a new direction and wrote a story directly for the silver screen in the early 1990’s. The result – Sleepwalkers – emerged as a genre favorite […]

O.K. There’s a month left in 2018, so perhaps it’s time to make out predictions on what’s coming out next year. We’ve had a hard blow this year with the closing of www.tvshowsondvd.com, but there will still be some stuff coming out. Here are my guesses. Just so you know, I […]
