Well, "Area 51" did make it to Netflix before Epix departed.

Don't forget Wes Craven's "Red Eye" which introduced me to Rachel McAdams ("True Detective - season 2").

Well I guess Wes couldn't wait to see what was on the other side. RIP.

And those movies we thought might show up on Netflix will be showing up on Hulu instead.

Oh and airliners in the 1980s didn't have winglets. That is a relatively new addition in the 21st century. :D

Yup, about everything I watch on Hulu even if it is 720p looks better than if the show is broadcast at 1080i. That includes the PQ on Showtime compared to when I had it on Comcast and it was 1080i.

And a lot of people a couple years back probably bought a new TV. HDR seems like a frivolous expense and obviously a come-on to boost any sagging sales because people already have a decent 1080p set.

What will you be playing it on? Most players including the ones on BD players can adjust to about any frame rate. What a converter will do is add artificial frames.
