Thanks Gentlemen, another great podcast, & for once I actually caught it live! :)

For the best Sigourney Weaver Movie, I am split evenly on Alien / Aliens / Galaxy Quest.

Choosing between them?

Well F*** Screw that! ;)

And I can strongly recommend "Never Surrender", the Documentary about Galaxy Quest.

Enjoyed the podcast including the 24fps discussion - thanks everyone

I’d agree it’s a hard call between Aliens or Alien3 for Sigourneys best performance but she was also fantastic in Polanskis Death and the Maiden, half decent thriller that some may not enjoy as it is like watching a play, but cracking performance from her and Ben Kingsley.

It’s only certain titles at moment, I tried a few marvel titles and they now have Atmos
Edit : Atmos yesterday, back to DD+ today, a few teething issues I assume...

Not sure what's going on, but both Mandalorian and Rise of the Skywalker will play Atmos on my Shield, sometimes. Sometimes when you start playing you get Atmos, stop it and then it maybe DD+ when you play again, and there's no clear pattern. The Atmos label is back though so it should work.

No Atmos labels on the app in Roku though yet, fingers crossed and all that.


whats the UHD Player that always gets recommended ?
I always think , must make a note and then forget

Great to hear Bill Hunt get a namecheck, any chance getting him on the podcast to discuss the state and future of media? His recent piece on Digital Bits about Kaleidoscape was great.

Further to the podcast, the lovely people at Bandcamp are waiving their fee on purchases this Friday (3rd July), if you want the album of the month- that is to say, whatever you offer for it, that money goes direct to Sault.

Just over an hour to this week's extravaganza and the exploits of Brad Pitt. So in the meantime I'll feast my eyes on this picture of Sigourney Weaver from Vantage Point:

and then on this one of her still-impressive midriff at the age of around 58 from a minute later in the film:
