007. Philadelphia

We cover a straight up Drama on this episode, one which earned Tom Hanks an Oscar for Best Actor. Philadelphia covers topics that bizarrely feel all to real with the current pandemic and protests across the globe. In addition to the incredible Hanks, this movie stars Denzel Washington, Jason Robards and Antonio Banderas. In addition we get cameos by Julius Erving “Dr. J” from the 76ers basketball team, Tracey Walter and even Roger Corman, the low budget filmmaker of old.

Our technical tip on this episode is about 4K TV’s and their ability to up-convert lower definition programming and media to supply a much better picture to older formats. If you haven’t made the journey to 4K as of yet, you must start with the television and this is a feature that may help you decide to take the plunge into this 4K debacle. These little tips will continue onwards up until Episode 12 or so.
