How the fuck are you supposed to watch movies nowadays?

I was thinking about watching Interstellar but surprise surprise it's not available to buy or rent on the internet. It's like they dont want my money. Going to a cinema is such a fucking autistic and shitty experience compared to watching a movie at home so that's not an option.

Unfortunately the best we can get is to wait for things to come out on Blu-ray and download them.

It sucks, since BD is such a ridiculously low quality format, but there's not much we can do about it.

apparently there is a site called torint where you can get free movies without paying money, i can't find it though.

Watching Interstellar on the big screen with earth shattering bass was pretty worth it. This film would lose some impact unless you have a home theater.

Pretty freaky movie btw.

I have a home theater but I have no way to get access to the appropriate content. We simply can't compare with cinemas without being able to access the same source material.

>>45604143
1080p, 24 fps, sRGB spectrum

Meanwhile cinemas are showing 8K res, 48 Hz, wide gamut content.

There is simply no way to get anything better onto Blu-ray video discs by definition, we need a new format to replace it since it's holding home cinema back with its muddy, undersaturated low-res headache-inducing framerate garbage.

Fuck Blu-ray.

No consumer monitor supports 8K, and no monitor fully supports 4K since it isn't a finish specification yet.

Blu-Ray is the best optical medium, unless they transition to flash drives it will remain the market leader.

>>45604170
>8K res
Hold on there bucko, let me interject with my knowledge on this topic as there are no 8K cameras yet, the Sony F65 tops out at a sub-8K resolution and uses that data to sample a clean 4K image. Even if theaters could project 8K there is nothing short of scanned IMAX film that can capture said resolution, and practically no one uses that anymore.
>>
>>45604170
>Meanwhile cinemas are showing 8K res
You're sitting way further back though, and it's upscaled as fuck to a massive physical screen size.

Don't be a whiny little bitch and go watch some classics, then in a few months come back and watch it when the BD is out. If you're an underage faggot that can't wait that long, go watch it in the cinema, that's exactly the type of people they're targeting by this.

What is that supposed to mean? How is my monitor not supporting 4K?

Also you ignored my other points. Framerate and color gamut. Those are more important than resolution, I'd argue.

>Blu-Ray is the best optical medium, unless they transition to flash drives it will remain the market leader.
It sounds like you don't fully comprehend the problem at hand. The issue is not the optical medium. The issue is the braindead technical limitations of the format stored on it.
>>
>>45604387
I don't see how the framerate is such a big issue when pretty much every film ever other than The Hobbit is filmed at 24fps.

wait till they come out on bluray. buy or download the bluray video. also should be available on itunes and netflix around that time, but that's inferior quality.

>>45604424
Once you have gotten used to playing games at 60FPS, you cannot go back to 30FPS.

Same goes for movies. Yes, 24 FPS is what people are used to. That does not make it a good thing. People were once used to horses, too.
>>
>>45604470
If the movie was filmed at 24fps increase the frames isn't going to make it look better.

It almost halves the bandwidth you need to send a signal.
That and almost all high frame-rate content originates at 1080i today, and it originated in 576i/480i ten years ago. (except for modern video-games, with which the signal never travels more than a few metres so bandwidth is never an issue)

Deinterlacing is pretty advanced in 2014.
Complaining about deinterlacing is like complaining about the rescaling your display needs to do with colour subsampling. aka Autism overload.

Cinematography has developed with 24fps in mind. The same camera angles and makeup techniques do not work with higher framerates.
>>
>>45604170
99% of all movies are shot at 24 fps. 4k is pretty much the limit of 35mm film; 8k would only be beneficial for a movie shot on 70mm aka imax film stock. 8k projectors are not real, try 2k and 4k.
>>
>>45605335
That's why we experiment, to discover what works and what doesn't work so that the necessary reforms can be made. You cannot expect a medium to stay stagnant forever. As technology evolves, cinema should evolve with it.

God, why keep upgrading an annoying gimmick system that's failed to break through three times since WWII? Even the soviets experimented with stereoscopic projection before that.

We'll have real, working VR in the mainstream long before they can wring out all the kinks with projecting stereo images on a screen in an auditorium. Nobody wants to pay 15 bucks to go to a cinema and wear stupid glasses. The filmmakers almost universally misuse the technology...

I suspect the whole format is ill suited to narrative storytelling; it'll show most of it's potential in games or maybe other open ended media experiences (interactive VR porn).

Meanwhile, we'll still make and enjoy "flatties" (at 24 or 48 or 60 or 120 FPS). Though they won't be the great cultural medium they once were... which is sad for me as a cinephile, but not really significant in the grand scheme of things.
>>
>>45606832
You're kind of late to the game, I mean Blu-ray has already been around for over 8 years.

4K Blu-ray is in the works, it's set to launch in about a year, but it's very questionable if it's going to take off at all, thanks to diminished returns as well as diminished interest in physical media.

So you might want to wait, but with that said Blu-ray is not exactly a huge investment, you can get drives or players for like $50 and movies drop in price almost as quickly as games on Steam, and while streaming will take over everything eventually, it'll be years before they reach the quality of Blu-ray.

>>45608013
Not him, but a friend who worked at a major cinema told me the computer that operates the projector is locked down big time. You can insert the media and press play, and that's about it.

So it's not like you could just install some program to rip the movie to a thumb drive while it plays. If you could get around all that, you probably have better prospects than working in a cinema for 12 bucks an hour.

They had to call a regional service technician to come in and fix keystoning issues and the like. Projectionist used to be a pretty technical position, with unions and apprenticeships. Today you pop a drive into a slot and call corporate if there are issues.
>>
>>45608013
I'm not him, but back in the day you couldn't even legally be in a film booth without an industrywide certification.

More fun facts from an ex projectionist, all this was true 2 years ago
Digital movies arrive on hard drives and range from 80GB (The Woman in Black) to 750GB (Titanic 3D). 3D does not double the movie's size, but increases it just a little.
When a new hard drive arrives, it is plugged in to a projector and its contents transferred to a 1-2TB drive inside the projector housing.
Trailers are sometimes sent via 8GB flash drive and trailer companies don't ask for them back. So after a few years of digital shows, we had a box full of about a hundred flash drives. I did try to play a trailer on my computer by opening the file with VLC and it worked. I didn't have the balls to put a hard drive's contents on my computer but I know it was a weird file format.
Regular or 3D digital movies are in either 1080p or 4k resolution.
Digital/3D IMAX is 4K.
