    Hi Martin,
    I'm writing to clarify something that is confusing for me. I was just reading your review of the 4K bluray of the new Jack Reacher movie and what I am having trouble understanding is your scoring and written review contradict each other, I find this a lot with many other 4K movie reviews and maybe I'm missing something. In your review you gave the 1080p version a higher score than the 4K version but in your write up you say the 4K is a slight improvement over the 1080p and is worthy of an upgrade if you enjoy the movie. How can you score the 1080p higher than the 4k and say it's better than the 1080p? Please help me understand that. Thanks.

    Also, in your Eagle Huntress review: "Moviemaking doesn't have to be complicated. It doesn't have to be slick. It just has to be pure." This is such a profound statement that I am going to repeat it for years. Well done.

    At the end of the Spanglish Blu-ray review, under Overall Score and Recommendation, you mentioned Albert Brooks instead of James Brooks. Not sure if that was a mistake or you were trying to be clever ("not even the finest film in the Albert Brooks canon" like it wouldn't be the finest of Albert's let alone James' films) but there isn't really background support for that in the review.

    Hello Martin,I noticed that your movie rating scores for Transformers Age of Extinction are different on both the 2D and 3D.

    Hello, I'm confused over the review 4K screenshots, which HDR screenshots are best to display on a HDR TV?

    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"

    ...is 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).
