The Noob News Monday Morning Roundup…

It’s time to take a look at the numbers from this past weekends box office and see how well Hollywood did filling it’s coffers with gold.

This weekend was dominated by “Battle: Los Angeles”. The summer blockbuster lite destroyed all competition this weekend with a strong $36 million dollar opening despite less than stellar early reviews. Also performing well and still holding strong was the animated film “Rango” who pulled in $23 million after last weeks $46 million dollar opening weekend and looks to be headed towards the $100 million dollar mark.

Disappointments at the box office this weekend include “Red Riding Hood”, the updated fairytale directed by Cahterine Hardwick of

Goodbye, HD component video

Posted on 18 February 2011 by Kevin Minke

Jim Willcox, the video expert at Consumer Reports, has released a farewell to our ability to get high-definition video via the analog component-video connections on Blu-ray players. This is due to Hollywood’s pirate-paranoia, that could leave up to 3 million law-abiding viewers with restricted choices or without the true HD option they paid for.

Hollywood studios now have the right to insert an ICT “flag” into a Blu-ray movie; if it detects that a player is using an analog connection that doesn’t support HDCP, it downconverts the video’s 1080p (1920 by 1080) native resolution to 960 by 540 (540p): better than DVD quality but only about one-quarter of full HD quality. This ensure that high-def video is available only through the copy-protected HDMI outputs.

As of January 1st of this year, manufacturers have not been permitted to make new Blu-ray players with component-video jacks capable of outputting high-definition (HD) video; instead, video sent via the component outputs is limited to SD (standard definition, either 480i or 576i).

For me I’m said as I do use my HD video component cables on my system because it provides me with the best picture experience with my receiver system not liking the HDMI as much as it should. For most of us this isn’t a huge problem as we already use HDMI on our newer TV and Entertainment Systems but for those that have older TVs that do not have HDMI, or who connect their source components to a receiver that has only component-video outputs. In the end these steps, I feel, are only going to effect those who use their systems legally, as there will be ways to copy from HDMI easier soon enough. Please stop making it easier for consumers to justify getting pirated material by making it more and more expensive just to use the products we already own.

Teaser Poster For Dylan Dog Movie; Dead Of Night Hits

Posted on 17 December 2010 by Christian

Check out this Italian poster for the upcoming Brandon Routh horror/comedy..

I like this poster, the trailer for the movie? Not so much. It does have a certain Buffy like charm to it and I like Routh but I dunno about this one.

In New Orleans, Dylan Dog is an ace detective whose specialty is paranormal cases. Now, he must deal with vampires, werewolves, zombies and a guardian of the Hell, due to a client’s case. With the help of Marcus Adams, his un-dead assistant, he will have to preserve the sake of the Earth.

Dead Of Night is directed by Kevin Monroe and hits theatres in Italy next March but doesn’t currently have a theatrical release date Stateside..or anywhere else for that matter.
