Not to "beat a dead horse" Phantom, but just how does that software work? I ask this because you seem to place the top titles right into the "spot" that they are voted into. So, what is it that...

You're right Russ, but we DO have a ranking system and if a disc is given a very specific score (in this case, .75), then that's where it should go. Remember, this was placed BEFORE you...

I have to take issue with you here, my friend. If only two votes are cast for the exact same exact spot in a Tier, that's where it should go. I see no reason for placing it lower (or higher) when...

Welcome back Russ!

Of course I agree with your analysis of this outstanding Blu, for it was a "gem" and a "beauty." I am a bit surprised you didn't consider it worthy of Tier Blu (as you may know,...

This Blu was absolutely STUNNING....in about HALF of its 100 minute running time. In those scenes the CLARITY and DEPTH were simply amazing, with DETAILS to match. BLACK LEVELS and SHADOW...

Oculus

My, how the "horror genre" has changed when it comes to PQ! Gone are the days of incredibly poor black levels, dizzying noise, softness and a flat picture void of details. Oculus boasts...

A Most Violent Year

This review isn't going to be pretty, for the PQ surely wasn't!! I had mentioned in a previous post that I had heard the director chose to use egregious color-grading (i.e....

Cymbeline

I was pleasantly surprised with this release, for I learned that it was shot with a very low budget and yet it was quite pleasing to the eyes! All daytime, outdoor shots were bathed in...

I was wrong thinking this was a Coen Brothers outing...but it could have passed for one! An enjoyable film, though not quite on the level of Fargo or No Country For Old Men.

This Blu is a "mixed bag" if I ever saw one! You could be basking in the sunshine of excellent clarity and detail one moment and then it would turn soft and flat. It was plagued with...
