Movies

Yeah, so I saw a lot of movies this weekend.

Elizabeth: The Golden Age - Mediocre, at best. Slow and dragged on. Shorten it to 2 hours and it's golden. It's not, so it fails.

Michael Clayton - Amazing. Everything about it is awesome. However, it's VERY complex and mind bending. You have to think, so be prepared. I still feel like I'm missing key details of exactly what happened. Gotta see it again.

Across the Universe - Perfect is one word that comes to mind. It just works. And, contrary to many people I bet, the movie is best viewed sober. Trust me.

To each his own I guess. Just like DVD's, there are production issues with Blu-Ray like excessive edge enhancement which varies disc to disc. I do prefer the "film look" to the HD you are talking about but IMO, it really doesn't seem to be the defining difference between low res DVD's and Blu-Ray.

Yea, i know what you mean about Blue Ray. Some movies have this weird unnatural look about them that im not sure the director intended??

Anyhow, im the prices better start coming down soon on discs and players or Blue Ray will never become mainstream.

Another hinderance ive always said about Blue Ray gaining wide acceptance is that regular DVD's already look "good enough" for most people.


ZERO incentive to upgrade for alot of people right now.

It's all a sideshow. Digital Downloads are the wave of the future. That's why, in my opinion, Apple (who was a backer of BluRay) hasn't pushed it.

I tend to agree but it doesn't seem that there is enough bandwidth to make it work anytime soon for high res. 1080p with lossless audio takes up a ton of storage space.

With 1 TB drives at bluray prices, it seems pretty easy.

However, the one thing conspiring against this is the cable companies. They may, like my current one, install bandwidth caps which would kill this business. I don't like paying for things twice.

Not too hard. Most people have DVD burners.

I recently read that they're remaking the Karate Kid and casting Will Smith's son as the Karate Kid.
I'm sure it'll be just as fantastic as the Bad News Bears remake.

I heard that too, I'm sure within a few years it will be a punchline on par with Gigli

Why do production companies do this to themselves??

Take for instance, the great instant classic, Disaster Movie. Who green lit that trainwreck?

Who initially thinks these will make money? They made 10 Million less than their budget!
