I couldnít take Lambert seriously either. Awful casting in my opinion. Mel Gibson would have been perfect.

However, it did have some really cool shots which looked great in 4K. Like you guys said, Clancy Brown was great.

Just didnít connect with me, despite the awesome soundtrack.
Agree completely with this assessment. I remember renting the vhs back in the day and simply couldnít get past Lambert.

I think the popularity had a lot to do with the Queen soundtrack.

I never liked this movie either.

4K's are 19,50 to produce ? I see 4K's being sold for far less than that.

Here is an example.

I don't know how it is in the US but over here it is even illegal to sell with a loss.

Myself, you and everyone else here knows you post this stuff just to get a reaction and then feign ignorance when called out on it. Perfect example is the "Ancient Sheltered World of 4K movie discs" statement above. This site is called Blu-ray.com, not streaming.com. So it stands to reason the majority of the visitors to this site are interested in your "Ancient" discs. To make derogatory remarks about the very reason for this site's existence is inflammatory and anyone with a modicum of intelligence would know that. But perhaps I am giving you too much credit. Either way, I'm done responding to your invidious behavior.

Oh, it's a whole lot of cheesy. I would never deny that. But it's one of those movies that seemed so awesome when you're young that you can't help but have a soft spot for it even after you recognize its obvious flaws. So I can see how it might not appeal to someone new to it.

If you give me your address and shirt size then I will send you a ďthick skullĒ (here) T-shirt because you deserve it more than any poster poster that I have ever come across. Most anti Blu-ray folks at AVS and other sites did learn the pros and cons of disc ownership vs EST but you appear to have learned nothing. For example, how many times does one need to point out streaming video from a server technology preceded DVD?

You are simply clueless about the entire process of content capture to disc for sale. Again, clueless about entire process of video from a CDN to an end user. Clueless

It has been pointed out, more than one time, we disc buyers make this site possible because we click a title we like which takes us to Amazon and there we purchase. When we do this Blu-ray.COM receives a percentage of that sale.

These anti-disc folks know they are not welcome here but they insist on posting here anyway.

I'm passing on the domestic release of Crimes of the Future, because Second Sight is releasing their own, which I will import.

Have Fablemans on my to view list. Viewed Crimes Of The Future awhile back, was sorta weird seeing Viggo Mortensen in that type role. Have several movies with Viggo in them, my fav:

If we're just throwing out random numbers let's say to stream a movie costs the studios $5 every time someone watches a movie. That means the studios are losing money every time someone streams a movie.

When author Robert Parker died, his estate hand-picked Ed Harris' co-screenwriter, Robert Knott, of the Appaloosa film to carry on writing books in the Virgil Cole & Everett Hitch series. There are 11 total novels and Knott wrote 6 of them (starting with 5th book called Ironhorse), with the 7th one being released in 2024. They're fantastic and after watching the film, reading the books, it's as if Ed Harris and Viggo Mortensen are right there on the page, as well.

I remember a few years ago Ed Harris saying that he and Knott had also acquired the rights to the second book called Resolution, but would probably not be able to film it, since the first film didn't make much money theatrically.

The thing is the replication costs for dvds is closer to like 50 cents to a dollar each so ya a 4k disc may cost like 3 dollars. That sounds reasonable as we have 4k releases selling at 6 to 10 dollars some of the time.

Penguin at least you keep to the Thread and don't just throw out numbers. If you look at the YouTube Video it talks about the cost of making Discs. Veritas Box Sets are priced differently, and your pricing of 50 cents is only material. We don't have hard numbers, but $15 to $19 for 4K is closer to the actual cost. Yes some 4K's will sell for much less, but that's when the higher inventory has to make up for the loss.

In other words: "I don't have hard numbers, so I'm going to use high numbers that make no sense because they support my point."

Again your numbers are silly. Resvervoir dogs 4k released at near 13 to 15 dollars which by your range would again mean they are selling the discs at a loss on release. Its pretty common knowledge that pressing discs isn't that expensive and that discs have pretty high profit margins. Its part of why stores like dollar tree can get a steady supplies of discs.

If you do math in your head and it comes out that a company release day intended profits margin is negative 33% perhaps you should go back to the drawing board.
