    Any Ernesto Diaz Espinoza fans on this board? I enjoy his movies quite a bit. Here's his latest.

    there were some supremely mediocre chunks of the hobbit, but none of that really bugged me. it was entertaining. my complaints about the weakness of the original source material apply here.

    definitely on board with more HFS releases. it was the first time I've had 3D work properly for the full length of a film without concentrating or straining on forcing the image to resolve. like always, 3D excelled where it was used to subtle effect as opposed to overly dramatic focal range or objects flying at the audience.

    HFS had a wealth of appeal for me outside of the 3D as well. that said, I hope it is obvious to Jackson et al. now that you can't simply shoot a 48FPS film like every other film you've shot prior. clear choices have to be made about lighting, editing, and camera language (especially along the z-axis) distinct from traditional approaches. given the uphill battle that adoption will face, I imagine it is unlikely we will see a feature length film that really tackles these problems end to end any time soon.

    it's also pretty shocking that a film that requires so much suspension of disbelief would be the first HFS film... given the crucial role that a slow frame rate has played over time in making suspension of disbelief effortless in film, you'd think it would happen for a film where it plays a less significant part in roping the audience in. kudos though... it made a fairly run of the mill film really interesting to watch.

    ods is right, Hoop Dreams was shot on analog video. It would be an essentially pointless Blu-ray.

    Still probably my favorite Malick I've seen (which is everything but The Thin Red Line). But yeah, what they were going for with the cover could work, but the execution is horrible.

    I'm surprised to see that Criterion is already putting out Monsieur Verdoux when they still have some big(er) gun Chaplin movies they haven't released yet. Looking forward to it, though.

    For those of you looking to be disappointed by Cristi Mungiu's follow-up to 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days, it appears thatBeyond the Hills will roll out in the spring - it opens at the Laemmle Royal on March 8th.

    Analog video doesn't look any better on blu, and there's really no way to fix that, as far as I know.

    If you want to see what analog video can look like, the blooper reel on the Star Trek: The Next Generation blu-ray is from what's got to be VHS (and maybe even 2nd generation VHS to boot), and while I love the content, it looks HORRIBLE (The rest of set of increbible-looking, btw).

    It's an MGM title FWIW. Also, one of my favorite movies ever.
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    That looks gorgeous.

    So i've been watching the first season of that mini-series Black Mirror... Very awesome, brutally dry satire on the technology/information age from Charlie Brooker. Well scripted and acted with compelling/weird plots that make me think for hours after watching. The second one in the first season (there's only three episodes) is absolutely amazing. You can watch them individually, plots/characters don't carry over.

    If you can't find it in better quality, which I def recommend, here's the second episode with hardcoded subs on youtube



    and the teaser/trailer
