      To me, Michael Jan Vincent will always be the man who had a three day erection after mixing Viagra with less than legal drugs. His legend will live forever.

      I watched that brill F1 prog. too. Interesting that #44, the 5 times wdc and that red Italian team were hardly mentioned throughout the whole series ! Lots of drivers swearing tho.. !

      By the way the actor who played Eugene Tackleberry in the Police Academy films was Paul David Graf. He died of a heart attack on April 7 2001 during a family wedding just nine days before his 51st birthday. :(

      It always makes me feel a bit queezy when I read stuff like that 'cause I nearly copped it with the same condition almost three year ago now. I got home just after a days graft and thought it was bleedin' indigestion. Ended up with a stent and a triple heart bypass. At least wifey didn't get the insurance money and I can still give her complete aggravation. :thumbsup: Apart from the news of those who have passed on (J M Vincent and Keith Flint) an enjoyable poddy guys. ;)

      Great podcast guys.
      Agree with Cas/Steve on After life, a great piece of work, funny, moving, wanting more... also echo Ed’s comments on the F1 doc, it may not be in HDR, but looks bloody gorgeous, has Atmos audio and is very interesting, I hope they continue each year.
      Also really glad to hear Samsung are still beating the life out of LCD and from the sounds of it, doing a great job, nice to have a serious alternative to Oled.
      Keep up the good work chaps!

      Nice Podcast. For Ed’s new article I think the most popular hi-fi type product seen in Movies is the Bose Soundwave, although I don’t know a single person that owns it. Just my 2 cents.

      The point made about the Rock starring in the New StarWars Movie later this year made me chuckle and giggle. After all I am Giggles. Ha, ha.

      Unfortunately, Apollo 11 doesn't have a UK release date yet it seems. I also desperately want to see it.

      The top 2 movies I am looking forward to this year are Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and The Irishman.

      Quentin Tarantino directing Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Al Pacino, Damian Lewis etc. In a story set during the Manson murders. I can't wait!

      Martin Scorsese directing Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, Harvey Keitel etc. With a budget of up to $200m and set around the killing of Jimmy Hoffa.

      Both films could be going up against each other for multiple Oscars next year if they live up to their potential.

      Jordan Peele's (director of "Get Out") "Us" is also one to watch. Currently 100% on Rotten Tomatoes. It's being released on 22nd of March.

      On the topic of accents there is one British actor who's American effort makes me want to do a Elvis Presley to the TV. Ewan McGregor plain awful.

      Quotes from The Last Starfighter I reckon.

      Also I hadn't realised Dominic West was English after watching The Wire (one of the greatest TV series ever made IMHO), it was only when he popped up on TV in a period drama with full on English accent that I went off and found out.

      Thanks again chaps :thumbsup:

      +1 for Dominic West / The Wire ignorance (i saw him on The Graham Norton show and was gobsmacked)

      To your point about 48" OLED pricing - I can't fit a 55" but i should be able to fit a 48". The price of something i can't have isn't relevant to me. The price of the 48 could be higher than the 55. What matters to me is the price and performance of TVs that i can fit e.g. OLED vs LCD options.

      Great listen, as always!

      Concerning the 48" OLED, did LG mention if these will actually be 4K or could they end up being 1080p? I was under the impression that one reason why OLED TVs were not smaller than 55" was because the diodes couldn't be packed closer together.

      The last Starfighter, man, that takes me back, that was the first film (had been to see Disney animations) I went to see in the cinema...

      Dominic has a nice wee house in Ireland, and a very interesting wife, this happened to hit my YouTube feed yesterday ...

      The Last Starfighter was the first film where I remember thinking "these CG effects might have a future".

      Thanks gents and just a shame I don't have Netflix due to some of your recommendations. Might have to bite the bullet in view of its growing catalogue or binge watch on a free month.

      The Samsung strategy in relation to DV is intriguing and another tipping point could be when/if LG adopt HDR 10+. Good news about LG 48" OLED plans and can we assume we will see them at next year's CES?

      Well we would assume they have to make a new panel to cut it from for this option.

      The idea of them not being able to be packed close enough is old news. Asus can do 4k on a 21.6" OLED monitor

      I'll be keeping an eye out for Apollo 11 IMAX but I think the only cinemas left able to screen in 15/70 IMAX format are based in London (Science Centre and BFI). If watching digitally, it may be best to visit a cinema capable of 4K laser projection. Fingers crossed it comes out here eventually.

      I've just read that Apollo 11 will be getting a Blu-ray release in the States on the 14th of May. Annoyingly there's no mention of a 4K release. Come on Universal and IMAX, this is the kind of stuff 4K disc was made for! So much utter rubbish gets released on UHD BD, but not the really good stuff.

      I would've thought that this is the type of release that IMAX would milk their "IMAX Enhanced" certification...

      You'd think so, but I guess it depends on who's handling distribution – looks like Universal in this case. While we're on the subject of the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11, any chance HBO can make good on the Blu-ray release of the miniseries From the Earth to the Moon they promised 12 years ago?

      best English accents by an American in a film is clearly a toss up
      between Dick Van Dyke (Mary Poppins) and Don Cheadle (Oceans Eleven)

      Honorary mentions Richard Gere's Oirish Accent in the Jackal and Russell Crowe in Robin Hood

      I look forward to the video format YouTube reviews. Also nice that I can plan toilet dumps based on Ed’s written reviews - it is proven that a stimulating read promotes and aids excretion, so Ed is actually improving the digestive health of his readers. Thank you Ed.


      One humble suggestion for your consideration is measuring intenet bandwidth especially as AI processing is mapping back to Manufacturers servers, just like Google has been doing for years on Google Photos App.

      I don’t want a TV that eats too much bandwidth. It has to be efficient which is challenging to get right.

      Can I request Brexit is on next week's agenda as I'm now totally confused after Wednesday's vote in the Commons. Please put it towards the end as Ed will have enjoyed a few beers by then. On the plus side in the event of a no deal, I see that the 14% tariff on the import of TVs will be removed.
