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

I didnt know that, cool :D I've been keeping tabs on Facebook and dont remember them saying that? Should I still hold onto the old DVD version? Can you see this video? https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=602056549827678 If not, go to this page and scroll down a bit to the video: https://www.facebo...

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

WTF I didnt know this, have they discovered more footage? I thought the longest version of The Wicker Man available was already on the DVD which looks like shit (understandably), I know a 'worldwide search' was being done apparently but didnt know what had turned up (it appears nothing so far), cou...

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

But I'm still wondering where did the material for the "Director's Cut" come from? Is it essentially the same or different version than what was now discovered? I think the print just discovered is even longer, but even if it isn't, at least it means the film will no longer be switching quality fro...

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

Slither - 3/5

Pretty funny, good gruesome effects that recall The Fly and The Thing.

The Wicker Man (2006) - 1/5

Worth watching just to have a laugh at Nic Cage, but otherwise it is a pretty awful film. It's not as bad as A Good Day to Die Hard though.

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

Pacific Rim - 3.5/5

I enjoyed it, great lighting, costumes, production design, humour. But as usual with del Toro's films, I disliked the creature design, and also the camera-work during the action made it hard to see what was going on.

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

Yeah, easily the worst of the Die Hard series, though I rated it a bit higher than you (**). Apparently the so-called 'harder cut' completely removes any trace of Mary Elizabeth Winstead. Like it was her fault the movie was so poor!?! :lol: Yep, that's the version I watched and she wasn't in it at ...

Oh yeah, last night I watched A Good Day to Die Hard - 0/5 One of the worst films I've ever seen, a complete failure in every way, I don't understand how its producers let it happen. And wtf is with McClane constantly shouting 'I'm on vacation' when he clearly isn't on vacation (rhetorical question,...

OK I've watched the Donner cut now and it's much better than the awful theatrical version, I give the Donner cut 3/5. Man of Steel is definitely the best, though.

Superman & Superman II - 1/5

We knew they were going to be lame, but my God, just awful. Any criticism that is levelled at Man of Steel, is present in these films to a much greater extent.

Hmmm, the shout release doesn't offer any increase in detail over the old - which of course was infamously suspected to be an upconvert. Grain is fuzzy as hell - I assume they didn't/couldn't go back to the original negatives for this one? Otherwise I'd be happy with the Shout disc, it's a massive ...

It looks as it should, it's the UK disc that's boosted like setting your TV to Dynamic Mode or using a gamma mode like Black Stretch. The US one is absolutely the one to own.
