Jeez Warner Brothers, you could of sprung the extra cent for a blu-ray Multi-Case instead of just jamming two discs onto one hub, or am I the only one whose disc was like that?
Yep. I hunted for it for a week in Edmonton. Didn't find it so I ordered it from Amazon. Still hasn't shown up on shelves here. I also waited several weeks for Fantastic Voyage but that finally showed up at Best Buy.
Saw the 1st Hobbit in HFR. I got used to it pretty quick and felt it improved the 3D to an extent, but I'm not sure how much it added to the experience at the end of the day. I go to movies to get absorbed in the story, something I have no trouble doing when the filmmaking is good regardless of frame rate. There's a threshold for an audience getting involved in a movie and I don't think 3D or HFR or anything else makes it easier for the audience to cross that threshold....
Ridely Scott is making Exodus with Christian Bale as Moses.http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1528100/BTW, just got this disc and was FLOORED by the picture quality. Amazing transfer.
I recall seeing that in the theater as well. I think it's inherent to the source, not the encode.
The Digital Bits gave the video and audio an A. Only negative was the extras, which are mostly recycled from the last dvd. http://www.thedigitalbits.com/item/right-stuff-the-30th-ae-bd
They made the point it probably looks as good as the original material would allow, compared to a modern film. From what I can tell of the screen caps, it has a softness that was inherent to the photography. I'm happy they didn't try and sharpen it or do any other digital tomfoolery to 'improve' the image.
Dvd beaver has a review and screencaps. Looks great to my eyes-- http://www.dvdbeaver.com/film4/blu-ray_reviews_60/the_right_stuff_blu-ray.htm
Saw this article. I'm sure the technology here is many years away but thought it might be of interest. http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2013/10/131015191403.htm
They couldn't hear it over the John Williams score.
