  • Demo-Worthy Scenes from the Passengers Ultra HD Blu-ray

    March 28, 2017

    With a Rotten Tomatoes score of only 31 percent, I didn’t go into Passengers with high expectations. I mean, I wanted to enjoy the movie, but  it seemed to be cursed by the general, “Meh” from many who viewed it.  Well, after three viewings I have to say that not only does the Ultra HD Blu-ray look and sound terrific, I really enjoyed the movie.    

  • Understanding the Strength of Industry Specialists

    March 07, 2017

    You can click to buy, you can visit a big box retailer, or you can visit a specialist. Obviously, as specialists, we would prefer that people go that route. Recently I had the opportunity to use all three options and thought I’d share my experience here.

  • Closing the Soundbar Sale

    February 28, 2017

    Even though soundbars are no longer a new product category, it has taken me a little while to find my flow when it came to the best way to fit them into our product mix. But with their lower price points and much simpler/lower cost installation they also have opened up a whole new world of customers for us.

  • Sully Ultra HD Blu-ray Review: ‘Hell of a Landing, Sir!’

    February 07, 2017

    With all that is going on in the world, with all the strife and in-fighting filling the news and airwaves, sometimes we just need a triumphant, feel-good story where we can sit back and celebrate the goodness of people coming together for a common good. Sully is that movie.

  • Jason Bourne Ultra HD Review

    January 31, 2017

    There are a couple of things that make the Ultra HD Jason Bourne release noteworthy. First, this disc is full-blown, real-deal 4K, having been filmed in a variety of 2.8K, 4K, 6K and 16/35 millimeter film formats, with the transfer taken from a 4K Digital Intermediate, and the detail and resolution make it onto the screen.

  • Film and Music Content Piracy Is Never OK

    January 24, 2017

    If you queried a random sampling of people, my guess is that most of them would say they were generally honest and law-abiding. Likely they would never think of walking into a Best Buy or Walmart and stuffing a Blu-ray or DVD into their jacket pocket and leaving without paying, even if they knew they would get away with it. However, that is essentially what millions of people do every year when it...

  • Deepwater Horizon Ultra HD-Blu-ray Review

    January 17, 2017

    This is the second pairing between director Peter Berg and actor Mark Wahlberg, a team that is carving out quite a niche by focusing on recreating actual events for the big screen. Here they tackle what happened back in 2010 on the Deepwater Horizon exploration platform.

  • Looking Back on CES: More Play-Fi, IoT Security, Hi-Res Audio, and Shaq Diesel

    January 11, 2017

    With 2.5 million square feet of show floor space, there is just too much eye-candy at the International Consumer Electronics Show to cover everything in a single post. In my first part (click here to read) I covered some video-centric items like LG’s OLED, Sony’s CLEDIS, HDMI version 2.1, and Dolby Vision.
