Re: Last BD (or, unrealistically, HD DVD) you watched?

Watched 2 more episodes of Continuum: Season One while we ate dinner: The Politics of Time and Playtime.

If I hadn't found this at a flea market for $1.60, I'd have probably never bought it outright. Having watched all but 2 episodes of the 1st season, I can't see myself buying seasons 2, 3, & 4. This has turned into yet another cop show, albeit with a few high tech gadgets, I'm already bored with it. Don't understand how it got such rave reviews.

Not really a fan of this movie but the wife wanted to see it again. When we were in Scotland we went to go see Rosslyn Chapel which is shown at the end of the movie. Found out they used to get about 6000 tourists a year. When the book was published it jumped into the 70's and when the movie came out, the number went to 170,000+ per year. At $10 a head.

It was ok but don't see what the big deal was.

It was fine. It was actually a lot like the first one, which is fine, but I guess I was expecting something a little different.

Another summer time tradition

Has Arnold made one good movie since he retired as governor of CA? I will give him credit for trying something different though I wonder why the director chose him for this project.

While it's no classic, I thought The Last Stand was pretty good fun.

Better picture. Better sound. Far superior to the HD DVD it replaced. Plus it has the original theatrical sound effects. A+

Re: Last BD (or, unrealistically, HD DVD) you watched?

^ good to know there are A.V improvements. Will definitely be picking that up at some point then.



Been binge watching this over the last week. Have two eps left I'll finish tonight. Have been enjoying this season quite a bit with all it's nods to the DC U and it's farther out aspects like the multiverse and whatnot. I'm also starting to warm up on Wally and will be interested to see him don the suit in the future. Unless it totally collapses in these next two eps, it will have been well worth the $12 I spend on BF.



I'd caught bits and pieces of this over the years on cable, and was familiar with the broad strokes of the story. Never watched it from start to finish until now and TBH, I was floored at how good this was.
I was not expecting how well crafted, well preformed or just how affecting the material would be- despite even knowing some of the plot turns.
Reese was incredible. Not just 'because of her age'. I honestly thought she was the equal or even better than most of her far more experienced co-stars. Not a fan of hers, but she didn't strike one false note to me here. But everyone was great. not a bad performance in the bunch. The film oozed atmosphere and authenticity. I bought it looking to enjoy the bucolic southern atmosphere on a lazy summer night- and it had that in spades. But so much more too. Anything more I say is gonna be insufficient. I read DVD Savant's review of it afterwards and agree with everything he said. Mulligan has made some fine films (can't wait for Love With The Proper Stranger in Sept.). This one is right at the top of the list. VERY underrated.
I can say this is now one of my favorite films of the '90's.

Re: Last BD (or, unrealistically, HD DVD) you watched?

The Sopranos seasons 1-5, now on season 6 part 1
I quit the show during it's original HBO run before season 4 so the latter seasons are all new to me, IMO season 4 was average at best but season 5 was almost as good as season 3, season 6 is good so far.
