Total Recall ‘Mind-Bending’ Blu-ray remembers a better looking video transfer July 31st

Total Recall 'Mind-Bending' Blu-ray remembers a better looking video transfer July 31st

After a disappointing initial go-round on Blu-ray back in ’06 due to poor picture quality (which was improved upon slightly in a later Studiocanal release overseas), the 1990 version of Total Recall is coming back to the US with a “Mind-Bending Blu-ray Edition this summer. Timed to hit shelves along with the remake that’s arriving in theaters, Blu-ray.com mentions this one promises a video transfer process supervised by original director Paul Verhoeven. There will even apparently be brand new extras including an interview with Verhoeven and featurette comparing the restoration process from the original film negative, although the Governator himself Arnold Schwarzenegger appears to be absent. The new version should run .99 when it arrives July 31st, assuming you’re not already camped out for the Colin Farrell / Kate Beckinsale / Jessica Biel flick which opens up August 3rd. Theatrical trailers for both versions follow after the break.

Best Buy Insignia cTV with DVR-less TiVo built-in launches July 31st

Saturday, July 16th, 2011

Best Buy and TiVo announced they were forming a “broad partnership” two years ago, then revealed a connected HDTV product last year, and now it’s apparently just days from being released. This information posted over at ZatzNotFunny pegs the launch date for the Insignia cTV as July 31st, packing the TiVo Premiere’s menu system and apps like Netflix, CinemaNow and Pandora. The 32- and 42-inch models feature built-in WiFi, but no included DVR and don’t require a TiVo subscription. With the recent launch of multiroom streaming on the TiVo Premiere and another DVR-less product from TiVo in the Preview, this is a perfect opportunity to include multiroom access, no set-top box needed. Unfortunately, like the pricetag of the cTV units, that detail has yet to be revealed.

Must See HDTV (July 5th – 10th)

Wednesday, July 6th, 2011

After a long holiday weekend we’re ready to get back to it, and although this week’s Blu-ray releases were unexciting beyond some Pixar re-releases there’s still plenty to watch on TV. This time around we’ll try extending through the weekend because really, why should we wait until Sunday to talk about Larry David?

Curb Your Enthusiasm
While Larry David may not understand why anyone wants to see this old man in HD, we wouldn’t have it any other way and Curb is ready to kick off its second season in high definition Sunday night. Last season featured a Seinfeld reunion show-within-the-show and while the title itself may be a warning to lower our expectations, we can’t wait to see where it will go next.
(July 10th, HBO, 10 p.m.)

Wilfred
If you’ve been missing out on Elijah Wood starring as a somewhat lost young man suddenly accompanied by a dog that he (but not anyone else) sees as a human being, this Thursday’s episode is an opportunity to correct a grave mistake. Yes, it’s a remake of an Australian show, and a lot like a live action version of Calvin & Hobbes or Brian from Family Guy. So?
(July 7th, FX, 10 p.m.)

Women’s World Cup soccer
Yes, it’s soccer, and it’s women’s soccer, but we’ll always take an opportunity to watch the beautiful game being played at a high level with national pride on the line. The US faces Sweden in their final opening round match and having already locked up a spot in the quarterfinals, will play to determine seeding in the hopes of avoiding playing Brazil in the next round. Consider this one a warm up to get familiar with the squad before the matches get real this weekend.
(July 6th, ESPN2, 2:45 p.m., replay at 9 p.m.)

Happy 4th of July!

Monday, July 4th, 2011

Backyard barbecue or small town parade: how are you celebrating Independence Day? I’m probably sitting someplace shady with a cool beverage right now, taking the day off from the HDTV Almanac. If you’re in the U.S., I hope you enjoy a great long weekend. And I’ll be back tomorrow with more news and insight into home entertainment and related topics.

Star Trek series coming to Netflix Watch Instantly in July and October

Friday, April 8th, 2011

Just because Netflix has licensed new content we’re not always sure when it will be available for Watch Instantly streaming, but TrekMovie.com reports it has the dates for Star Trek content covered by a recent deal with CBS. TrekMovie has confirmed it will have every episode of all five live action series — US only, sorry Canada, enjoy that Iron Man 2 — with the original Star Trek (in HD), Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Voyager, and Star Trek: Enterprise (in HD) available July 1st, followed by Star Trek: Deep Space 9 on October 1st. There’s still no word on when Family Ties is arriving, but the two year deal (with an option for two more) should give viewers who haven’t already shelled out for the boxed sets (we know you got the HD DVDs) a chance to get all the Trek they can bear.

Blu-ray releases on July 27th 2010

Tuesday, July 27th, 2010

Clash of the TitansLove it or hate it the top title this week is the modern remake of Clash of the Titans. And if you are worried about more fake 3D, don’t, this Blu-ray Discs has lots of features, but one of them isn’t 3D. But even if this one isn’t for you there are still a few others worth a look like Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, or maybe enjoy the extended cut of Rambo, with an extra 15 minutes of .50 action. If none of that appeals to you, then maybe you’d like Fanboys?
