Ouija

I agree wholeheartedly with Phantom's take on this when he stated, "The razor-sharp image has excellent definition and clarity." He also stated that the black levels were "inky" and that it...

Ex Machina

This is one MIXED BAG!! You have scenes with incredible sharpness and details and then out of no where you have pervasive softness and a loss of details. Most of the exterior scenes are...

Stand By Me (25th Anniversary Edition)

+1

I gave this the same placement. It had excellent PQ with the exception of the "Lost at sea" scenes.

Regarding Dolby Atmos, one doesn't need a Dolby AVR or speakers to hear the difference,...

Wild Horses

I was intrigued when I ran across this low-budget, independent film that not only starred Robert Duvall (one of my all-time favorites!), but was produced and directed by him as well. I...

Insurgent

I should warn you that even though the PQ is very good, the movie itself wasn't all that great. I thought it was a decent "rent," but I'm glad it wasn't a "purchase."

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...
