Discussion in 'Blu-ray and UHD' started by Ronald Epstein, Dec 21, 2012.
I ordered it a couple of weeks ago. It's going to be a fun 3D and sound experience, as it was in the theater.
I laughed, I cried, I ordered
One of the best things I saw in 2012. OK, technically I went 01/01/13..but anyway..awesome film.
One of the best uses of 3D I've seen in a film since Avatar.
New,revised cover for 3D Bluray and Bluray [added] ** images removed by request** Images can be found on Fox's website (foxconnect) as well as on Blu-ray.com and yet they don't want ANYONE to post them. I guess they forgot thoses two sites that I just mentioned.
I liked the original cover better...it was based on the movie poster.
Very confusing new slip-cover with no mention of a Blu-ray 3D disc on the front, just the spine. :td: The initial cover looked much better and specified a Blu-ray 3D addition on the front.:tu: Paul
The film looked stunning from a visual standpoint. Although, the only reference I have seen is the trailer. I wasn't able to see it in a theater. The only thing that concerns me is that it is directed by Ang Lee. So far, I haven't been to0 impressed with him from a storytelling perspective. His HULK film was like the visual equivalent of Chinese water torture, but this film looks so good from the point of view of cinematography that I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.
Ang Lee turned a movie that many people thought unfilmable into a coherent whole. Life of Pi worked well. But it was filmed in 3D and really needs to be seen on a big screen in 3D to appreciate it.
I would have liked to have seen it in a theater, but I'll have to settle for watching it on my 65" set in 3D. It won't be quite the same, but I have to admit that I actually prefer watching 3D films on Blu-ray. Theatrical viewings are okay but the 3D always seems to look better to me when the film is on BD. Frankly, I think the theater where I see 3D films does not do the best job possible when it comes to presentation. It also doesn't help when you have to listen to oafs laughing at inappropriate times and providing unwanted running commentary like they did when I went to see The Hobbit: AUJ. You'd think that at 13:50 a pop, a person would want to actually see and hear what they have paid for but apparently there are a lot of people out there that must be made of money and don't care.
Seeing Ang Lee is director makes me want to see a movie. Two of my favorite movies are The Ice Storm and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.
Brokeback Mountain was not too shabby either.
I forgot that he directed Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. That one wasn't too bad. The Ice Storm and BrokeBack Mountain, I haven't seen. Both of those consist of subject matter that I have no interest in.
I love that Pi is posed the exact same way on both covers, but on different parts of the boat.
I'm curious about something for anyone who has seen the movie (I'm saving the experience for Blu-ray). I've heard that Life of Pi transitions through 4 different aspect ratios: 1.33:1, 1.85:1, 2.00:1 and 2.35:1. What was the native aspect ratio in the theater, meaning were there black bars on the sides during the 1.85 scenes or black bars on the top and bottom during the 2.35:1 scenes? I hope the Blu-ray replicates whatever was done theatrically.
I don't remember all of that. I do remember at least one switch to 133.1
That's all that I remember too but maybe the multiple changes were in IMAX?
