Titanic on 3D Bluray.

If you thought it was a load of crap before wait until you see The King of The World in 3D !

Together with that godawful Celine Dion in lossless DTS-HD Master Audio and a comatose time is guaranteed for all !

Currently watching StarTrek Into Darkness on BluRay. It's not blowing my skirt up that much. Except for that blonde English chick, mmmmm.

freitasm: Watched Star Trek Into Darkenss last night, out of Amazon Instant Video. Feeling good I didn't pay to go to the movies...



My thoughts exactly. This one wasn't worth paying cinema prices for. I paid six bucks to hire it over night.

Just watched Rush. Really enjoyed it. Similar to Senna, but far more film than documentary. Amazing camera work, sound was phenomenal and it felt like they put you right in the cars without doing the gopro helmet cam thing like TT closer to the edge. You could really feel the big v12's. Story was pretty good too. Even my wife enjoyed it.

I saw Gravity last night and really enjoyed it.

Two actors for 91min might sound like an exercise but the intensity really doesn't fail to let up.

Stuff happens, sh!t goes down, the end. Enjoy.

I saw it in 3D (Atmos sound) at The Embassy and can quite confidently say it's the nicest 3D i've seen. A space film like this certainly lends itself to that kind of medium. I won't go and see it again or anything but would be very interested to see it on a home 3D system one day.

Keen as to see this, especially in 3D. I remember seeing a trailer at IMAX Melbourne for the Hubble IMAX documentary a few years ago and it was amazing, looked like the hubble was floating in front of you and you could touch it. I'm imagining Gravity might look a bit like this :)

That's the one thing that's putting me off going to it..  Two actors for 91 minutes  with heavy breathing..

I think that the finance committee wants to see  but it must be better than Atlantic Rim that I saw last Saturday..

Also saw this over the weekend, in 3D with Atmos, 

Its a very good film, and visually stunning, ( there are a couple of plot clunkers), but overall it is certainly better than a whole lots of the pulp out there, 

Its not "the best sci fi film ever" or what ever other descriptions are being used in reviews, but its a great little film, there is not a lot of plot or dialogue, but its a great ride..

Sharknado - 4/10

From the "so bad it's good" file, it was pretty cringeworthy throughout, but it looked like they knew it was bad, so I deliberately saw past the cheesy dialogue, awful acting, and dodgy CGI, and completely ignored the plot (which the filmmakers seemed to do, as well).

RED 2 - 6/10

I really enjoyed the first one, and this was a bit of harmless fun too, but most of the jokes had already been done so it wasn't quite as good.  But how can you say no to Helen Mirren with a machine gun?  As expected, a whole bunch of new people are thrown into the cauldron and brought to a simmer - Byung-hun Lee, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Anthony Hopkins - which kind of spreads the lines a little thinly.  If you weren't too excited by the first film, there's nothing much here.  Otherwise, it's a pretty easy-going film, worth a look on DVD.

Much Ado About Nothing - 8/10

I'm not particularly knowledgeable about Shakespeare, but I do enjoy Joss Whedon's work, so I happily sat myself down to watch Much Ado About Nothing with the wife last week.  It's in black and white, set in a modern context, but with the original Shakespearean dialogue, and featuring a roll-call of Whedon's finest actors.  It took me about 30 minutes to adjust my ears to the unfamiliar english, and I struggled to follow the details of the plot (which I deliberately didn't look up before I went into the theatre).  But eventually it all started to come together, and it was a great film, well acted and paced, and beautifully shot.  It was filmed in Whedon's house over 12 days, which is a remarkable feat in itself.  Well worth a look, even if just for the pratfalls of Alexis Denisof and Amy Acker.

There's not *that* much heavy breathing, heh. There's so much to look at and get immersed in the environment that I didn't really notice any in any case. There's enough depth with other *things* happening that it feels like there are more actors.
