Re: Interstellar - March 31

A good blind buy?

This looks like the regular version at Wal-Mart unless they decide to list the Neo exclusive on the release date or it is already sold out?

I liked Inception though I did not understand everything and I own that plus the Prestige and all the Nolan Batman movies.

I blind-bought a movie ticket and thought it was worth it.

I got to see it in IMAX 15/70, as they won't be making any more prints, it was a bit of a bittersweet treat. Whether you like it or not, it's a film worth seeing and talking about, and IMO that makes it worthwhile.

Re: Interstellar - March 31

I enjoyed this even though it's a super long movie. I'll probably pick it up, but not sure if I'll do it right away. Glad it has some good bonus material.

Re: Interstellar - March 31

I think it is close to 3 hrs long and somebody in another board wanted more visual pizzazz so I assume maybe there were not a lot of special effects but more character development.

Re: Interstellar - March 31

I'd advise a rental. I thought it was pretty good, but it feels like a 4 hour movie and not something I will probably watch again.

Re: Interstellar - March 31

I really enjoyed it the first time I saw it, and liked it more the second time.

The things that bothered me during the first run weren't quite as bothersome the second time around, and for some reason this is a movie that got my imagination rolling which is pretty rare these days.

Re: Interstellar - March 31

Confused by the exclusives in regards to the IMAX scene ratio. Will all versions have the larger IMAX scenes inserted in the movie or will only one store being carrying that version. I know we have Wal-Mart carry the only IMAX option as an exclusive before.

Re: Interstellar - March 31

Might pick up the WM version if I can find one that doesn't have package damaged from shoving it into a security case.

Are the extra features from BB on the discs, or are they downloadable content?

To the best of my knowledge, all Blu-ray editions will have the shifting IMAX aspect ratios. Not sure about the DVDs versions.

The only time Walmart ever had an exclusive IMAX version of a movie was Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

It must be sold out...I ordered one and it's in the shipping process - due to arrive by April 3rd.

Do we know if the extra content from BB is on the disc? It's a paramount thing too soooooo maybe? They usually do that.

I hope not. I remember when the Man of Steel Steelbook came out in 2013 Walmart waited until the release date to post it on their site.

As I recall, I had no problem walking into a Walmart and finding plenty of copies of the Man of Steel Steelbook.

I ordered mine from their site...looks like it's been taken down since then, though.

Re: Interstellar - March 31

Just bought Interstellar off Amazon. Apparently there is a free code that will be e-mailed to me for a 10 minute bonus featurette.

Re: Interstellar - March 31

It is showing up now at WalMart.com and looks like you can order the Neo Pack now

Re: Interstellar - March 31

Any clues as to the NeoPack's availability in stores? Will they have a lot, or just a few and sell out quick? I'd rather not step into a Wal-Mart if I don't have to.

Re: Interstellar - March 31

I have to admit, I find it a little odd about all of the chatter on the NeoPack packaging. I only have one (TASM2) and didn't find it nearly as cool as the steelbooks. And the fact that it's going to be $3 more than the steelbook at Target made it an easy choice for me.

Re: Interstellar - March 31

Steelbook's cover art/photo is lame. If it had the same cover image as the neopack, I'd get the steel.

Agreed. I also like the idea of having that book, but I wonder if it really doesn't fit in the packaging once opened.

My current plan is to get both and take back the one I don't want after seeing both first hand. This is assuming Target opens up the option for in store pickup tomorrow morning.

Re: Interstellar - March 31

It looks like the Wal-Mart and Target exclusives are out of stock online

I think the Target edition sold out quicker though it looks inferior compared to the Neo Pack.

Re: Interstellar - March 31

Dunno. I'll probably pass on it. This will probably be one of those movies that's on sale for $7.88 on Black Friday, and I'm in no hurry to see it.
