  1. Second that! I'm also going to give it a try in our dubbing suites at work
  2. Standard definition is a thing of the past. Everything I/we shoot is in HD. So why wouldn't people want you to see it the way it was shot, not some low quality, grainy DVD that contains less than a quarter of the original image information.
  3. Thanks Owen. Great to know!
  4. Erwin, I had the chance to buy and look over some of the Empties from inside fury. The very ones ejected by coon rump himself. They were a little over my budget sadly. But almost all were, (I'm told) beautifully and fabricated from scratch out of I assume brass/a metal similar in colour. With dents/simulated burned carbon effects. I saw some complete rounds on the set with the warheads (and obviously inside fury) I think they were maybe aluminium rounds with the same milled repro shell. Beautiful workmanship that I'm sure rob l and Owen know much more about.
  5. Amazing. Thanks for clearing that up Owen!
  6. Another Fury prop, a Baker company/batallion M1 helmet, net and liner. It's a repro fixed bail shell with repro straps. And has a label with "tired GI" on the liner. Although, I'm sure I heard a rumour some of the wardrobe came surplus from monuments men. So maybe it was labelled for that. Who knows! Si
  7. Amazing, nice little detail mate! Great touch there. I don't think I will, but I saw many on the set being opened/burned/stacked up. I think mine has black tape to simulate the clover leaf from a distance. The ones I did see with tags looked excellent! Maybe I'll take a closer look at some point to check. I'm soo pleased to hear it's an original and even rarer being one of 7 or 8. I doubt I'll be able to pick it out on film though! Great news! Unfortunately it doesn't have the same effect on my carpet! Thanks for your hard work. These now take pride of place in my col
  8. Finally, a musette bag and m1 helmet, again, informed that these are also off one of the tanks due to the one piece straps for hanging them. But sadly I doubt I'll be able to ever identify them.
  9. This jerry can was off one of the tanks. Not sure which (will have to wait for the blu-Ray!) complete with pyro charges (detonated). And on further investigation of a strange rattle, a .50 cal link!!
  10. Next up, a .50 cal ammo crate. I'm not expert, but I have been informed, that it may be original. It's definitely vintage, looking at the inside at least. Repainted however (I assume) and with reproduction , cast plastic, painted wing nuts.
  11. Here are a few Fury props I have purchased recently. Appologies for the crappy iphone pics. Will get better ones when it is all "installed" in the man cave! First up, 76mm packing crate and extra cardboard tube with metal, stamped ends.
  12. Wade, all excellent points that I noticed, but failed to acknowledge.
  13. As someone who was lucky enough to have spent some time on the film as an extra, collects US WW2 militaria, and is a film maker for a living, I will try and give my honest review of the movie without too many spoilers and talk of the merits of the film production, rather than individual scenes, so as not to spoil it for anyone. Despite being part of the battalion scene at the start of the movie. I had little knowledge of how the rest of the film would play out script wise, and tried to avoid any plot hints, to get the maximum impact. I was not disappointed. The sets were incredible, an
  14. Finally just watched the movie! Will conduct a review when the adrenaline wears off!
  15. The makeup on that guy was incredible, Looked very sore indeed! The Sherman you can just about see behind him is the one that myself and several other forum members crewed for that scene for the week Can't wait to see it tomorrow!!
