Putting my 4K telly to good use! :-k

Image
Out today
(Also, never buy films from Zavi. HMV and Amazon didn't have it listed, so I impatiently ordered it from them for 25 quid. Today, it shows up in HMV for £19.99. Can't cancel the order, and it'll cost the better part of 5 quid to send it back. Annoying, but I'm gonna have to eat it.)

Out on the 21st.

If there's one thing I've discovered about 4K disks, it's that older films seem to benefit the most when it comes to resolution while modern, digitally shot films seem to benefit more from the HDR.
Admittedly, it's largely dependant on the quality of camera components at the time, but it can be amazing to see films from the 80s and 90s looking so detailed. Even if it's not some massive up-tick in details, just having it look like film and not a compressed digital image is worth it for me.

Considering these two are among my favourite movies, I'd say I'm pretty jazzed to see how they turn out.

Two new additions to my collection then as of today thanks to Fathers Day presents!

Wonder Woman has been out now since what August last year and I've still not managed to watch it yet which is a pretty big fail on my part as it's considered the strongest DCEU movie in years I'm very much looking forward to finally seeing it for myself but after reading fan and critic reviews I am anticipating great things from Patty Jenkins. The movie has always come across as DC's own equivalent of Captain America: The First Avenger.

Rogue One is easily my favourite Star Wars movie of the last few years after the abysmal Force Awakens and Last WHY WHAT THE FUCK Jedi and although I've never been entirely sold on the two main characters there's more than enough in there additionally to make up for how lacking they were especially in terms of Donnie Yen, Forest Whitaker and Mads Mikkelsen - I mean come on.

As for what I'm planning for myself next I currently have my beady eye on Strange Days and the Director's Cut of Dark City.

I got the Lord of the Rings on Bluray which is great, but all the extra discs that the special features are on are DVDs! How shitty is that?

Fly bastards. :x

Love this movie. It directly answers the question concerning how if we ever did finally come across alien life in the known universe will we actually end up wishing we hadn't. Sure Jake Gyllenhaal sadly doesn't step up to his usual leading man self but aside from that everything else about this movie from the suspense to the bloody amazing CGI and ending make up for it plus it only cost me a paltry £7 brand new and sealed. Lovely.

Oh and it's a great Venom prequel too. :wink:

Rebecca Ferguson looks a little more rugged than I remember.

I hate it when they do that!
If they're going to put a row of name and faces on a box, the least they could do is have them properly line up!

Ah well!
In keeping with the topic: Went on a bit of an American 4K movie spree. A bunch of mid-brow Sci-fi that didn't get released over here.

Ex Machina
Annihilation
Source Code
Arrival

Along with a UHD copy of Cabin in the Woods, because it's a modern classic. ;)

A bit annoyed that the US is also getting 4K releases of American Psycho and a double feature of Punisher films. If they're re-mastering them, I'd pay for a cleaned up version of the Tom Jane film, for sure.

Preach brother!

Ex Machina was released over here wasn't it? I could've sworn I went to the cinema to see that.

Although I am mildly demented. :?

This is the blu ray thread. You can't get these films on 4K blu ray over here.
I could save money and just get them on regular old 1080p, but what fun is that? I want the best!

Ah. I even read the 4K bit, internalised it, then proceeded to forget all about it and write a load of shite anyway. Apologies. :)

Saving moneys is great and all, but maximum p's take precedence.
