AV Rant #284: Weird and Awesome
Listen after the final music for a spoiler-free review of the new Avengers movie (it is out in Australia so Tom went and saw it). Liz is out of town this week so Rob H. steps back in. Lots to discuss including a listener question about PCM, an article on Ars about Mastered for iTunes, and 4k/8k news. We have a Netflix news this week – CEO has been ranting and they’ve been affecting ratings. Tom and Rob debate the new Hobbit movie being shot and shown in 48fps. Rob thinks no, Tom thinks all the people that are whining about how it looks need to shut up. Rob has a warning about Windows 8. Star Trek: The Next Generation is getting an update for Blu-ray. Thanks for listening. Check out our Facebook Page. Click here for our YouTube channel where you can see the recordings of our show videos. Download Tom’s FREE superhero-themed ebook Bob Moore: No Hero wherever ebooks are sold (or given away in this case). Visit Tom's website for download links as well as links for the two full-length followups - Bob Moore: Desperate Times and Bob Moore: Hostile Territory. Friend Tom on Google+ to join in on one of our hangouts. You can listen to our producer Austen and his friends dissect movies at his podcast We Watch Movies.
