    • General thoughts
    • Spoilers: Biggest/best moments
    • What is this movie about?
    • Garland can be kind of a prickly interview subject. I interviewed him several years ago for Annihilation and he was somewhat intimidating, but I think Jacob had a really good conversation with him and there are some really good observations and anecdotes in it that I’ll be thinking about for a while.

  • Drew Goddard Heads Into The Matrix, Tim Robinson Gets an HBO Show, and More

    On the April 3, 2024 episode of /Film Daily, /Film editor Ben Pearson is joined by /Film editor Brad Oman to talk about the latest film and TV news.

    In The News:



    Listener email from YiFeng from Boston, Mass:


    I hate to bug you, but the recent podcast conversations about disc rot & backing up physical media have some misinformation that I'm hoping other listeners will write in and correct, but here are my corrections:


    1. Hollywood/MPA issue commercial discs that are copyrighted protected by CSS, AACS, BD+, ROM Mark and probably many more techniques. You can't insert a disc into your computer and use a file explorer and just copy the disc - you will get an error.


    2. If you want to backup ANYTHING from the disc, you will need to bypass copyright protection by using tools such as Redfox and DVDfab. Please note that at the time of this writing, US DMCA laws stipulates that you *DO* have a right to backup, but the tools used to rip discs are illegal, which is why all of them are from outside of America:

    https://lifehacker.com/is-it-legal-to-rip-a-dvd-that-i-own-5978326


    It's a bit of a gray/catch-22 type of scenario. Just a warning there.


    3. Handbrake.fr is only a tool that will re-compress & shrink your disc files. For example a Blu-ray may contain a movie file that is 35 gigabytes, but you can use Handbrake to compress that down to 10 gigabytes - that is what the tool does. Handbrake and compression tools do *NOT* rip discs as they do not bypass the copyright protections put in place by the MPA.


    4. Finally, regarding disc rot, the Library of Congress has a study on that from ~14+yrs ago but it's still relevant: https://www.loc.gov/preservation/scientists/projects/cd_longevity.html#:~:text=Statistical%20analysis%20of%20the%20EOL,reach%20EOL%20within%2010%20years


    Basically the net sum is it is extremely small and that study encompassed computer CD ROM (beyond just movie discs). If anything, the disc qualities of today's Quality Assessment far surpasses that. I'd wager to say it's probably less than 1% if the library of Congress performs a study today. Most of the time, if you read the study, the rot has to do with users storing in high humidity, non-environmentally controlled locations. If you care for it, the disc will outlast humanity. It is (after all) plastic and we all know now that plastic is basically not going to degrade for hundreds of years (green issue is another whole separate conversation). Are there manufacturing errors? Absolutely, but they are extremely miniscule. Here is an example from Criterion below, but they still offer the program to replace the discs:

    https://www.criterion.com/current/posts/3317-exchanging-defective-discs


    Hopefully, this clears up some confusion. Quick summary is you can rip but you'll need to bypass copy protection, and disc rot is basically a non-issue.


    Actually, that brings up another interesting point:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Data_degradation


    Let's say you are Warner Brothers and you have the full uncompress filmmaker files of the camera capture or dcp on your servers, THOSE FILES WILL ALSO ROT even if they are on server/enterprise-grade hard drive! 


    There needs to be a process of not just making backup copies, but double checking that the data they have and also the backup copies are still not impacted by the rot. CURRENTLY, most enterprise data technicians do NOT have a process to account for data-rot. 99% of the enterprise companies do not even think about that.


    Yes, they have backups, but if your original is rotted and you back up the rotted data, both your originals and your backed up copies are all junk because no one is opening the files to verify if the backups are still legit and clean. Maybe AI will help to protect against this, it can be done... but there is an added cost to make this work. No one is willing to foot the bill for it.


    In other words, even backed up copies of movie media are subject to rot, just like physical nitrate/film negatives!

    On the April 1, 2024 episode of /Film Daily, /Film editor Ben Pearson is joined by /Film staff writer and box office expert Ryan Scott to talk about the box office numbers from this past weekend.

    In The News:


    Listener email: Hey Ben! I was listening to you and Ryan on the podcast talking about disc media rot and just wanted to share with the class that there is a good computer program for taking a DVD or Blu-Ray and creating a copy of the contents on your computer. You can transfer all the properties of the movie, including subtitles, etc. The application is called HandBrake. Computer files are infinitely duplicatable, so you could put as many copies of the same movie on as many hard drives as your heart desires.

    Obviously, this program could be abused and used for pirating movies (don’t use it for that!), but as long as you are only creating digital copies of movies that you bought and paid for and only for personal use, everything is kosher. Thanks! - Alec

  • Blu-ray/DVD Rot, Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire's Box Office Performance, and More

    In The News


    E-mail: Phil from Germany wrote in a couple of weeks ago, and mentioned something in his email that I wanted to highlight here. He says: “The podcast keeps mentioning physical media and its recent bigger relevance than expected. Keep in mind that both DVDs and Blu-rays decay over time. Many of my untouched or barely touched DVDs from 20 years ago do not play completely anymore. My “Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” (still sealed) and “Veronica Mars” (played once before) collections only played half the episodes when I revisited these TV shows last year, and those were not the only ones. Blu-rays decay slower than DVDs, so going for those and creating backups seems to be the best way to keep the favorites available.
