Whitney Matheson, USA TODAY 1:16 p.m. EDT October 2, 2013 A new contest will let a Turner Classic Movies fan co-host a film with Robert Osborne. (Photo: TCM) SHARE 29 CONNECT 12 TWEET COMMENTEMAILMORE If I watch a classic film on Turner Classic Movies, I make sure to catch Robert Osborne’s insightful introductions and postscripts. More often than not, he tells me something I didn’t know, and that even goes for movies I’ve seen dozens of times (like, say, The Graduate). This month, TCM is holding a contest that will let one lucky fan co-host a movie with Osborne. Over at the site for its ” Ultimate Fan Contest ,” you can submit a 90-second video of yourself introducing a classic film. Along with being featured on the air, the grand-prize winner will win a trip to the 2014 TCM Classic Film Festival in Hollywood, where he/she also will introduce a film. The contest just kicked off, so few submissions have been posted on the site.
The player connects to your display via HDMI. Movies are automatically downloaded, but you only pay for the movies you watch. Prima claims better than Blu-ray quality and twice the sharpness of Blu-ray which is a bit of a stretch, seeing as the resolution is 1080p/24 (same as Blu-ray). The encoded bit rate is twice that of Blu-ray (less compression ) and there are more bits per color . So presuming your equipment can handle the latter, it should be a little better than BD. That said,even if it looks the same as Blu-ray, thats still excellent. Currently, Universal Pictures, Focus Features, Magnolia Pictures Millennium and Cinedigm offer movies on Prima. If other services are any indication (like Netflix Netflix , iTunes, Google Google Play and etc.), expect to see more studios sign on if Prima does well. Cost(s) If youre expecting the Prima Cinema to be expensive, youd be right. Just the hardware is $35,000. Each movie is $500, and you only get to watch it once. You have to be vetted by the company (you cant just buy one). The fingerprint scanner makes sure its you watching the movie (or are at least in the room when it starts).
Prima Cinema Brings First-Run Movies To Your Home
Hooplas launch wont affect the stocking of physical DVDs at library branches for the time being, Blankenship said. Unlike physical copies, there are no waits for patrons who want to borrow a streaming movie. Seattle resident and library patron Jamie Koepnick-Herrera found the yoga videos she was looking for on Hoopla. I think it provides a great free source of entertainment for families who cant afford to get a movie for family night or for teenagers to have access to that album they cant afford, Koepnick-Herrera said. What’s offered Hooplas movie and television collection is impressive in its numbers: about 3,000 titles. It is, however, full of B-movies. But there are also many older films, including some classics. The choice of foreign flicks is also healthy and with some quality picks. Documentaries, such as Gasland and Restrepo, are some of the top picks for a collection that also includes public television documentaries, like Ken Burns Prohibition. Under the television section, Hoopla offers plenty of National Geographic and British shows, but not much else. There arent past seasons of many shows, which is one area Netflix thrives in. There are also educational choices, such as preparation videos for high school advanced placement exams. On the music side, the choices are far greater and newer about 300,000 titles.
