    Anyway, Tenet is...something. It was entertaining, I liked it, and even after two viewings I am not more than 75% sure of what I saw and what actually happened.

    In other news, our TV broke (I think it is fixable and we will try to do so soon), so it gave me a chance to upgrade to a lower-mid-tier LG 65" OLED TV with HDR.

    Any of you have any suggested titles for showcasing HDR?
    Dunkirk was good. It had a short run-time, which is unusual for a Nolan film, and a war period piece.

    I want to see Tenet, as I'm a Nolan fan too, but I anticipate it being a difficult film to follow. I remember people having a similar reaction with Inception, but I had no problem following that one.

    Our main tv stopped working on black Friday. Good time for that, I guess. Went out and bought a new 60" Samsung. Still getting used to the settings with HDR. Sorry, no suggested titles. But I'm all ears if anyone else has any...

    Only Lovers Left Alive

    Never even heard of this movie, and I stumbled across it, started watching it, and then started it from the beginning.

    I wouldn't call it good, but I did find it interesting. Tom Hiddleston, Tilda Swinton, and a really good supporting cast of actors you will recognize. Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton are centuries old vampire lovers struggling with modern life.

    The movie is carried by the interactions between Hiddleston and Swinton, they make you believe that they have been in love for centuries.

    Can't say I recommend it, has a film noir feel to it in some parts, but I can't really compare it to anything to help people judge if they might like it.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    4K Blu-rays I'd suggest picking up that are pretty good upgrades over any previous home video release or new releases that just look amazing include:

    Ready Player One
    Bohemian Rhapsody
    Jaws
    War Of The Worlds (Spielberg remake)
    2001: A Space Odyssey
    Pacific Rim
    Mad Max: Fury Road
    The Jungle Book (CGI remake)
    1917

    There's a lot of movies out on 4K that are basically upscaled 1080P sources to 4K or worse some idiot at the controls jacked up the edge enhancement or other digital tomfoolery to make the image "seem" to look sharper, more colorful, etc than standard HD. The Star Wars original trilogy especially New Hope aren't really any improvement over the regular Blu-ray for instance.

    If you like Nolan films then I recommend it, but it’s almost as if he got just too clever for his own good.
    The 747 scene was filmed at our local airport, which also houses the power plant where my wife works. A friend of mine got to be on set. It’s funny to hear them mention the city I work in on the special features.

    Anyway, I’d done a lot of research and studying Consumer Reports and my dad and I came to different conclusions. He bought a 75” Samsung QLED but wasn’t that concerned with HDR. I ended up with the B-series LG OLED 65”, which CR said they didn’t notice any reason to go to the (more expensive) C-series.

    First thing I learned after plugging it all in is that the Apple TV 4K pushes everything to your TV at 4K HDR by default and you don’t want that. But first I needed an HDMI cable that would carry all the data, which luckily I had. So then I had to set the default to SDR and now when HDR content is selected, the TV “thinks” and then tells you if it’s HDR or Dolby Vision (I wanted a TV that did both of those). I also learned that I want to use LG’s “Cinema Home” setting under normal day and night lighting and “Cinema” when the room is totally dark (this is the most accurate setting).

    Some films I see little difference other than how lights (or light sabers) jump off the screen. But I have had some films recommended to me as reference which I already had, including John Wick 2, which does look great. Also, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. I saw Interstellar for $4.99 and I’ve heard that’s great reference for HDR as well. Last Jedi looks really good, too.

    I usually look up to see if that’s the case and I’d read the 4K HDR “prints” of the Star Wars OT were brand new scans, not upscale, though that means the suffer from the same issues the Blu Ray’s did because the same print (like the magenta color tone) are still present.

    Luckily, I didn’t buy them. I bought the Blu Rays for having downloaded the Despecialized OT, and Disney+ has the 4K versions.

    Ready Player One looks pretty good (also just read the sequel, which was fun), but as I mentioned above, so does John Wick 2 and Guardians 2. I will get back to both of you on Interstellar.

    I love the music soundtrack to this movie. It took me a couple years to find the album used at a reasonable price.

    DD, if this movie at least intrigued you, I would suggest checking out "Byzantium." It's a movie about a Mother and Daughter vampire and is a much more engaging, dynamic and atmospheric film then Only Lovers... It's directed by Neil Jordan who did "Interview With A Vampire" and "The Crying Game."

    Another film Jordan directed early in his career is "Company Of Wolves" which is weird as fuck.

    “Fletch”. Enjoyed it better than when I originally saw it oh so many years ago, but I don’t know that it left me yearning for a sequel or a reboot. Nice trip back to the ‘80s though, lol.

    Before the movie, there was a promo for “HD DVD”. Was that the shortest lived format in the history of formats? Or was that actually the same thing as what is now called Blu Ray?

    Competing formats between Sony (Blu Ray) and Toshiba (HD DVD). Loosely similar to VHS and Betamax competing.

    Basically the studios were split, but Blockbuster, Target, and Walmart got behind Blu Ray and then Sony made the PlayStation a BluRay player and Toshiba conceded.

    Classic.
    I'd probably rank it 3rd among Hughes' films, battling it out with The Breakfast Club.
    Planes, Trains & Automobiles and Ferris Bueller are my 1 and 2, respectively.

    I'll take Uncle Buck over any of them except Ferris Bueller. The Breakfast Club is incredibly over rated to me. Possibly because as a farm kid, that was not my high school experience, so it didn't resonate with me as it did with others.

    Same..too much teen angst for me, even when I was a teen watching it. And I may be the only person in the world that thinks Plains,trains is kinda overrated, it has its moments though
