Warner 90th Anniversary in 2013 - Page 2

post #31 of 71
What a coincidence, one from me list, The Incredible Mr. Limpet:

http://www.dvdbeaver.com/film4/blu-ray_reviews57/the_incredible_mr_limpet_blu-ray.htm

The caps look ok, might be an old scan though. Nice to see Knotts on BD, there's a couple of other films he did that were excellent.

Certainly hope so. I'd give a great deal for a proper restoration of Best Years.

They are filming Mad Max : Fury Road as we speak, so I am hoping they release Mad Max : Beyond Thunderdome

If he's indeed MAD as you say, wouldn't that only help the characterization (I mean, the character is MAD Max, no?).

As far as him being "way too old", the idea when they were making this film 10 years ago was to put Gibson together with Heath Ledger. The script easily could've been written, I'm guessing, to fit a younger male lead with an older Max. Sadly the ship sailed on that concept and we'll never see it.

Max is angry mad, not insane mad

Admittedly it's not 2013 but anyway...

What Ever Happened To Baby Jane? (damn socialist pre-conditions):
http://www.dvdbeaver.com/film/dvdreviews22/what_ever_happened_to_baby_jane.htm

A quite excellent movie if you have not seen it, powerhouse performances. The caps look nicely film-like and good detail, not flat either.

Ice Station Zebra:
http://www.dvdbeaver.com/film4/blu-ray_reviews57/ice_station_zebra_blu-ray.htm

I love this movie, makes most spy flicks look shallow in comparison. The caps have waxy faces, has detail but looks like an old master. WB is a mixed bag as usual.

Why is it a waste of time? House of Wax is a classic.

I want some of the '50s sci-fi on Blu. The Thing, Them, Beast from 20,000 Fathoms. Please make that happen Warner!
post #50 of 71
If by "The Big Parade" they mean the 1925 King Vidor classic, that release will make my year!

WB has got a thing for Bette Davis, Dead Ringer:
http://www.dvdbeaver.com/film/DVDReviews12/dead-ringer.htm

Bette appears to have soft focus on her in these caps, the screenshots without her have a jump up in detail, there appears to be minor EE but there is film grain there.

I am more interested in What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? after looking at another site's caps, lovely film look to them. Dial M for Murder & Dead Ringer look more mixed due to optical effects I guess, in both some screenshots really nice and others looking rather poor., not sure which examples dominate either films.

Guess this fall under '90th Anniversary' but I could not see any graphic on the cover images saying that, Grand Hotel:

http://www.dvdbeaver.com/film4/blu-ray_reviews_58/grand_hotel_blu-ray.htm

Film grain appears to be in the caps but detail is rather weak, still some will probably claim other sites will show an explosion of detail which of course will not happen.

Wonder what the source was? Several times removed from the first print?

There are few Fred Astaire BDs, Easter Parade:

http://www.dvdbeaver.com/film/dvdcompare10/easter-parade.htm

Judy Garland looks hot here. Nice detail in this caps and it's hard to spot any sharping artifacts, has film grain too.

Westworld, Aventi vs. Warner:

http://www.dvdbeaver.com/film3/blu-ray_reviews56/westworld_blu-ray.htm

I have never heard of Aventi before but I find in these caps I find the WB version less pleasing, unless one likes people to look like stretched out to look LOTR dwarfs, strong saturation and less detail. The Aventi version does have some artifacts in the bars in the images but otherwise appears more film-like.

A few may blame the difference on a beaver conspiracy, but like always will be proven wrong.

A Christopher Guest film, Best in Show:

http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Best-in-Show-Blu-ray/44306/#Review

For a 2000 movie these caps look unimpressive to say the least.

It was shot on 16mm.
