Mike is that your new 4D Ultra-Smart Widescreen Holographic TV on display there? I keep forgetting that new TVs have internet on board, I've had my 3D TV for nearly 2 years and I think I've only used the internet twice on it. I much prefer using a mouse and keyboard to a cumbersome remote control, I know there are special remotes for TV internet but I didn't get one.
I'm still planning to see Edge of Tomorrow, hopefully next week. Hard to believe a big expensive sci-fi action film starring Tom Cruise failing to open at no.1 at the US box office, it didn't even open in second place. Oh how the mighty have fallen! Cruise is still popular in other countries, that might cheer him up a bit. Number one movie was a tearjerker I'd never heard of until I saw it listed at box office mojo, I don't even recognize any of the names in it.
I saw The Grand Budapest Hotel a few days ago, it wasn't hilarious but I enjoyed it, a quirky film full of quirky actors directed by quirkmeister Wes Anderson. The film has flashbacks within flashbacks and each in a different aspect ratio, the 80's flashback is in 1.85, the 60's flashback in 2.35 and the 30's flashback in the nearly square 1:37 ratio. Unluckily the majority of the film is set in the 30's so all the action is 'boxed' in. I'm so glad movies got into widescreen by the 1950's.
