Re: What Have You Just Ordered or Received?

Bought Oblivion (UK Blu-ray) yesterday, didn't like the Frame packaging as the spine has no title on it, so went to Tesco and bought it in a standard Blu-ray case and returned the other one to HMV today.

Kick-Ass 2 - 3.5/5

The Conjuring (2013) - 1.5/5 ...lack of scares MPAA disagreed. They refused to give PG-13 even for a cut version, because "It’s just so scary. [There are] no specific scenes or tone you could take out to get it PG-13" :lol: - http://www.movie-censorship.com/news_en.php?ID=5194 I know, it'...

Re: What general film/series have you just seen.. marks out

Thanks Gas :) Though like you, I'm wondering what he means when Hardy says "It has never been shown in UK theatres before or been restored to Blu Ray before" etc, what he's referring to? His wording suggests he means a different print from the DVD Director's Cut one but its hard to tell. ...
