What comes after the Diamond edition? It should be one that has the 3D version with the new features. What will it be called? Diamond Plus Extremely Limited Edition??

Content is one thing. What is of bigger concern is the upscaling from either non Atmos or non Auro 3D audio, meaning matrixing 2 channel and 5.1 or 7.1 audio (because the vast majority of one's...

The director's intent is one thing, but if it ends up confusing the audience, viewer, then there is a problem or perhaps it was not meant for the viewer to understand what is being said. So it is a...

Now available on disc. Well edited and paced for those who do not expect an action sequence every 10 seconds. Hoffman could easily pick up an Academy Award nomination for best actor.

Video and audio usually look and sound a lot better in the Prime theater. So you should not have been offended. Theater 15 is certainly not going to have nearly as many speakers as the Prime...
