    What do you think:



    I personally don't find any value in such things. The print quality in the samples in the video don't excite and I certainly don't want to pay their cost.

    Just a play on the current LP fad.
    Thing they don't get is many of our LP's back in the day had awesome and original artwork on the cover, not some still photo from a movie. BLAH.

    Well past time for Disney to start releasing 4k-UHD-Atmos BluRays. They hold the catalog rights to some of the most eagerly awaited and highly desired 4k films in recent years, yet continue to hold out? :mad::(
    I've heard estimates like another year while they wait for Dolby Vision support? Why, put it on the discs and release them.
    Someone is well deserving of a as-kicking. :eek:

    Lot of times they delay as to force the stakeholders to pay them to use their content.
