Is there an obvious technical reason why The Terminator hasn't had a UHD release yet? Or is it just something to do with the rights?

Ideally, they’re working on the transfer super hard so it doesn’t turn out like T2

I assumed there was some specific issue preventing them from doing it because Dark Fate comes out this month and typically that's a time when you'd see a UHD release for a film from earlier in a series.

yea i dunno what the exact legalities are from keeping that movie from joining the UHD family. It's a FOX franchise so maybe there's a backlog of films that are still receiving the 4k treatment and the disney stuff aint helping and by disney stuff I mean, who the gently caress knows what their process is for restoring and treating films and where exactly their minds are for physical releases beyond Marvel and disney animated films.

Have I said that I think UHD is probably the first home format to have done justice for 2001: A Space Odyssey yet?

I'll just put that one to have on in the background now. It looks STUNNING. Like it was shot yesterday.

But then how will he make half a dozen Avatar sequels that nobody wants?


Mos people think it's a minor Carpenter but I like it a lot because it's super wacky and really fun. I also found it to be a better Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy movie than the actual Hitckhiker's Guide movie.

edit: I also just remembered that it's very similar in premise to Alien and I wonder if Dan O'Bannon purposely used Dark Star as the skeleton of Alien.

Makes me wonder what Carpenter Alien movie would be like....

As a side note, does anyone else here ever encounter people who seem shocked that you'd watch a movie more than once?

Whenever we have guests at the apartment and they go down the hallway towards the master bedroom and on the corner before the door there's a shelf full of like 500 UHD/Blu-Rays/DVD's/VHS... its all mine and they ask if i really need all that.

yes i do you schmuck, how dare you

Iron Crowned posted:



I also have a roommate to factor into the mix, so my time to watch "my movies" gets relegated to weekend mornings/afternoons or the occasional evening when she's not around. It's not that I can't watch movies when she's around, it's just trickier since I know she's not going to be interested in watching 2001 or Critters 2.
my partner and none of our roommates enjoy my particular kind of movies. they're all firmly in the "easy to watch" (romance, bad comedies and holiday) films. so me putting on Stalker or Blue Velvet on in the living room will probably never happen. thankfully the OLED is in the bedroom so all my movie watching gets done there, usually with noise cancelling headphones on while my partner sleeps because she gets nightmares.

If you are a Fulci fan, the recent The House by the Cemetery remaster by Blue Underground looks superb. Pretty good extras, watched the special effects one and they go through all the gore scenes talking about how they did them and the guy even shows some of the devices they used.

If you are not, it's a pretty wtf nonsensical plot, although I found it interesting enough.

every Fulci movie is like that.

I just go along for the ride.

Yea bluray.com forums people are the type that don't really have to like a movie to spend money on it, their goal is basically to own every single relevant film ever made. They'll buy Parasite, throw it on the shelf still in the wrapper, and never touch it again.

i had an uncle who was like that. he had an immaculate DVD collection, but maybe 10 of them were open the rest (probably in the 500+ range) never opened.

I'm real glad steel books bother me with their sizing and "neatness" factor or else that would be a heavy burden to wear.

I wanted the Blade Runner briefcase so bad and now I hate it because I can't bring myself to throw it away and I doubt it's worth anything but I just keep bringing it with me when I move.

I think that the standard 5 disc blade runner set is actually worth more than the briefcase. IIRC, the resale for that 5 disc blu-ray was $135 at its lowest.

I bought the giant stupid version of Halo 3 that came with a nearly life-sized Master Chief helmet because I was a dumb child who thought it was cool. 13 years later it’s just up in my attic collecting dust.

I think the only giant novelty boxset I have now is the Futurama complete series that had new cover art and slimmer packaging. It came in a giant box where the seasons were stacked sideways for some reason, so I just stuck those on the shelf and tossed the box in a closet. If your giant novelty display case isn’t a 1:1 Bender head then why bother?

mine is sitting in my closet. I both want to keep it and get rid of it. I do have a cat now, all these years later... maybe I should turn it into a cat helmet, once and for all.
