The announcement was made on the Ptch blog this afternoon. “As part of the Yahoo… Read More

  • Paramount offers $10 rebate for Blu-ray upgrades

    Happen to be a HD DVD earlier adopter? Sorry to hear that. Paramount and Dreamworks wants to help switch your library to the winning side and is offering up a $10 rebate. All the studios ask is that when you buy a Blu-ray title of a disk you currently own, mail in a promo certificate along with the proof of purchase from the original disc’s packaging.  That’s not all good… Read More

  • HP, DreamWorks develop 30-bit LED-backlit LCD

    HP and DreamWorks, two titans of something, have joined forces, not unlike Voltron, to develop a new LED-backlit LCD technology that “provides accurate, predictable color and a simple color management process.” Let me translate. You know how when you view an LCD sometimes colors will look different depending where on the panel they are? I guess that’s a big enough problem… Read More

    Flickr’d Either DreamWorks is stupid or there are some things going on behind closed doors that no one knows about because there’s really no other explanation as to why they’re still clinging to HD DVD. “We have a partnership with Toshiba and have an obligation to see this through,” DreamWorks Chief Executive Jeffrey Katzenberg said on Tuesday. “As you know… Read More

  • HD DVD still kickin'

    Try as they might, HD DVD isn’t going down without a fight. Whether these titles were lined up before the WB announcement is anyone’s guess, but a few blockbusters are slated for this quarter. I didn’t see Beowulf (2/26) and I think the reviews were mixed, but it’s an exclusive as is American Gangster (2/19) and Bee Movie (3/11). I didn’t see the Seinfeld movie… Read More

  • Get That Noose Ready: Surge Of 3-D Films Coming Next Year

    Not all 3-D movies are terrible, but most are rehashed pre-teen jokes with adult innuendos and crappy voice overs. While waiting for Spiderman 3 to start, I had to sit through two previews for PG-rated 3-D animal flicks (yes, one included penguins). I thought that was bad, until I read this Reuters report. Apparently, next year and into 2009, almost every studio will be releasing multiple… Read More
