I miss this. If you've ever seen a 70mm print of West Side Story or Sound of Music in a cinema you get a sense of what can be done artistically with 5 screen channels and what was lost when we gave...

There's your problem.



That's right - the 1st generation PS3 can't pass the bitstream for Dolby TrueHD or DTS - it decodes in the player and hands off PCM over HDMI to your receiver. Since the...

Actually this is happening all the time. Even films shot on 35mm usually go through a Digital Intermediate stage for color correction, VFX, etc. The 2K or 4K (usually 2K) is then output back to 35mm...

That 7 speaker sound stage makes no sense to me. The largest of commercial cinemas (including Atmos cinemas) have 5 speakers behind the screen.

There aren't any contracts for the Blu Ray codecs - the mix is done in native 5.1 or 7.1 PCM, and someone decides what codec (if any) to use for compression and authoring to disc. Those decisions are...

I haven't seen Penguins yet, but I give a big recommendation to go see Big Hero 6. It's on par with some of the Pixar stuff, and has a really delightful short film to kick it off. Great movie.
