    Hi Martin I read the review of the first Bourne film in 4k. Very distressed about the quality. Might I suggest on these really bad 4k reviews that we must complain to the studios before they keep this up. Many times the video community has bettered a format when it is new, like getting Warner to add DTS MA on their blu-rays, many people complained. It would be nice if you provided a link to Universal's contact page to make a complaint. I worked for the DVD File reviewing films when DVD premiered, and posted in the reviews for the Columbia releases (they were using terribly low bit rates),a link to Columbia video president, and sure enough after 6 months, a drastic change in their bit rates, Not saying it was all from our efforts, but it helped, so I thought I would make the suggestion. If there is a quick way to do something about it like a link to a "contact us" page from Universal, many people will do their part. Keep up the great work!

    Excellent opening paragraph on the Ben Hur review. Your comment

    "style is emphasized over substance, scope is forced rather than organic, and an epic feel and flow are manufactured rather than naturally occurring off the back of the narrative, not the production" pretty much is a banner statement for mainstream US cinema today. Succinct and precise commentary!!!

    Just checking to make sure, since another review was raving about the HDR. I have the 930C in the bedroom and my wife watches that more than I do. I have the Samsung player connected to the 940C in the living room, so that's the one I watch 90% of the time. However the 930C is no slouch either when it comes to HDR (I think it can do over 800 nits). BTW, I usually watch with the Sammy player set in enhanced mode, but often at night I set it to standard. UHD movies often look darker than their BD counterparts so that's one reason I like enhanced mode. I also bump up the color on the to 65 but the other HDR settings I leave as it (although sometimes I'll lower the gamma to -2 at night).

    Hi Martin, just to make sure, you do have the HDMI port (the one that your UHD BD is connected to) on your 930C set to "enhanced" mode, right? Just curious as I have that same TV and it outputs very good HDR and some of your reviews don't seem to reflect that (most recently, The Secret Life of Pets).

    Hello Martin;

    In regards to your review of the blu-ray movie: Dawn of the Dead (1978). Don't you know DNR when you see it? The actors looked like wax figures, and all of the detail was extracted from the video due to its excessive DNR. Dawn of the Dead looked awful and you've given the video 4 1/2 stars? Your review was highly overrated in inaccurate. The video was smothered with DNR to the point that it was completely unwatchable.

    I'm not sure if this was a glitch or something of that matter, but the end of your Star Trek Beyond 4K Blu-ray review reads, "Paramount's UHD release of Star Trek Beyond XXXXX".
    Possible bug?

    You failed to mention in your Dinotopia review, that SD upscale aside, the Blu-ray is a vast improvement in compression quality, and is 16x9 while the DVD's are 4x3, so that alone is worth the upgrade. Another star, or at least a half, may be in order there.
