Beige OMG they have no resale value Glad to hear things are not as dire as previously posted. Now back to the original problem.. Your TV needs to be bigger.

Redboxed Us on blu ray. I thought it was well-made, well-written, well-acted, and suspenseful in parts. The plot, though, was just too much for me. The analogy/allegory/underlying meaning, etc, okay, that's fine, but the actual story used to convey it was just too off the rails IMO.

Overall, I think Get Out is a better, more effective horror movie that also has more effective societal commentary. The IMDb ratings reflect that with Us at 7.1 and Get Out at 7.7. I'd give Us a 6.8 and Get Out a 7.5.

I've been thinking of Redboxing it too especially with the mw popcorn codes I have sitting around. Just disappointed after being told by the RB guy that it would be available UHD it wasn't.


I've been surfing Amazon to see what's there. Started on "Trapped" last night. The networks are the "dead zone" right now and some of the streaming sites not much better. Execs must think we're all on exotic vacation getaways.

Watched The Addams Family (1991) today for the first time. It was alright. I think I much prefer the cartoons. Will be watching Addams Family Values (1993) when I get the chance.

Alita Battle Angel. Solid stuff. Liked it a lot. Sadly the House of Mouse will kill any sequels, probably.

Supposedly the next couple are in legal limbo due to WB not paying bonuses and one would be a Furiosa centered tale. All in all, you here know this, but Tom Hardy fully captured Max.

Anyways, Fury Road is primo audio. I can't wait to see it in 4k when my plasma dies from some weird Final Destination accident that wasn't setup by me.

Speaking of 4k what tv/brand is top of the heap at the moment? I've got a soft spot for Sony due to the three that I own they are total workhorses, not showing any sign of slowing up meanwhile my Sammy LED 4k has purple spots all over the screen.

I'd be in the market for a 60 inch. Seems like LG has made some waves.

OLED has the best PQ imo. It has the deepest blacks, best angle of view, very high contrast ratio, and decent gamut. And doesn't have to resort to tricks like FALD.

There are other factors to consider though... like price and burn-in. Prices have come down in the last couple years on OLED TVs, but there's still a premium to be paid for this technology over other LCD/LED-based techs, esp. if you go with a Sony. Regardless of what some salesman may try to tell you, there are only two technologies for new direct-view TVs at the moment. And they are OLED and LCD/LED. The other techs (like QLED, for example) are largely about branding, and variations in the back-lighting on the LCD/LED models.

Burn-in and color drift are probably still issues though on OLED. I went with a Sammy LCD/LED over plasma for my last TV, because I wanted a display that was versatile enough to be used for a wide variety of applications, including web-browsing and computing. I liked the PQ better on plasma. And tried out several different floor models from different mfrs, before finally settling on a Sammy LED. My main concern with the plasma TVs was the potential for burn-in.

If movies and TV viewing are your principal app though, then I think OLED is worth considering. I believe LG is the only panel mfr btw. And Sony gets the panels for their OLED TVs from them. So the LGs may have slightly newer and better panel designs than the Sonys. I like the PQ better on the 55" LG than on the 65" though. And I'm not sure exactly why. Maybe it has something to do with the size or density of the pixels. Some of the processing and other junk may be a little better on the Sonys though. I'm not really sure about that though.

If you get an OLED, I'd plan on calibrating it frequently. Maybe as often as every 3 or 6 months, if you use it alot, to compensate for any potential color drift. That might be something you'd want to learn how to do yourself, rather than paying the Geek Squad or an ISF calibrator big bucks to do the same job. The hardware for this can be rented pretty cheaply. Decent color analyzers are available for only a few hundred bucks though. The analyzers also need to be calibrated from time to time for the most accurate results btw.

I still do most of my calibration by eye, using a 6500K fluorescent bulb and some custom patterns designed to match the bulb's specific color characteristics. It's not the best way to go. But it is one of the cheapest for someone like me on a very tight budget. My TV is just Rec. 601/709 though. So I'm still kind of in the stone age. Calibrating newer models with support for high dynamic range gamma curves (HDR/Rec. 2100) and wider color gamuts (Rec. 2020) is, I assume, a bit more involved.

Last horror movie I watched btw was the 1972 TV movie Gargoyles, with Cornel Wilde, Jennifer Salt, Bernie Casey and Scott Glenn. Streamed free on Crackle, if I remember correctly.

Saw a Sony, the one mentioned earlier at Best Buy yesterday. The X900. Amazing. Saw several reviews complaining about viewing angles and I didn't see any unless you were parallel to it which would never happen in my use. We'd be directly in from at all times in my office. About 9-10 feet away.



I love my plasma but I'm getting the 4k itch and that'd be the only reason to upgrade. My use case would be movies and games


Also I've been reading on Atmos, getting educated. Apparently the height speakers aren't especially special (avs blasphemy) and there's some out there that sit on your l/r fronts and fire up. I may give that a go and see if it fits my space. I'm due for a speaker update. I will say the Onkyo is kicking arse. I like how it doesn't mess with the video like the HK did, I've seen a marked improvement on everything from that standpoint. It's plenty loud as well.

So I did get to watch "Us" on BD last night. Very interesting film and the BD came with the extras. Joe Bob will be happy that Peele used the term "reference" rather than "homage" because there are a lot of references to other horror films. A couple he didn't mention was "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" and the H.G. Wells "The Time Machine."


I also binged all six episodes of "The Chosen One" on Netflix, which is a Brazilian series around a team of doctors who go into the jungle to give vaccinations to villagers and run into a strange cult. It was excellent and there is a setup for season two. Also it was shot in 8K.

Dark (2017–2019 ) Netflix

"Dark" is a rewarding investment in time spent in untangling the family trees and timelines.



The trippy time-travel series received comparisons to Stranger Things when it premiered, but it's actually much deeper and more evocative of Twin Peaks. Weaving a twisty tale about four interconnected families in a small German town, the show is worth the effort of the mental gymnastics required to understand the wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey nature of its storytelling.

Before the merger I think of the House of Apes had already decided the numbers didn't warrant a sequel.

Dummies. It was like that Mortal Engine movie. Really good and mostly original concepts but House of Neckbeards aka Marvel Fans deemed it terrible due to lack of Starks.

Ultimately, the movie failed for me. I enjoyed the first third of the movie better than the last two thirds. The acting, dialog, and situational setup was much more interesting than the course the movie ended up taking.

I'd be a bit tougher on it, and give it a 5/10. While Get Out would be a solid 7/10.

Have to agree, I applaud the effort and look forward to his next project but didn't hate it.

I watched the first episode of "The Loudest Voice" on Showtime last night. I was amused that it is a Blumhouse production. Yeah, it is kind of a horror show.


One goof I caught was the abandoned Sam Goody store they were looking at for the FOX News location had a sign saying "DVDs $11.99". It was supposed to be 1995 and DVDs didn't come out until 1997. Do I get bonus points for that?

I noticed it was a Blumhouse production too.

I wouldn't have thought it was possible to make Russell Crowe look anything like Roger Ailes even if they had Greg Nicotero and Tom Savini working around the clock but they pulled it off.

"Dark" is a rewarding investment in time spent in untangling the family trees and timelines.







The trippy time-travel series received comparisons to Stranger Things when it premiered, but it's actually much deeper and more evocative of Twin Peaks. Weaving a twisty tale about four interconnected families in a small German town, the show is worth the effort of the mental gymnastics required to understand the wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey nature of its storytelling.
I'm on S2E5. Is there going to be a S3 coming soon or the series finalizes with S2?

I'm almost done with S2 and can't possibly imagine what they are going to come up with for S3.
