Was harbouring a small hope for a 4K UHD, seeing as In Bruges and Three Billboards are both available. But I'm grateful for the blu-ray!

I watched the US region-free blu-ray yesterday and really enjoyed this. It hasn't yet premiered theatrically here and I went in without having read too many reviews, other than noticing that it has been very well placed on all the Critic's year end "Best Of" lists. Completely different than In Bruges; although very funny in parts, it is much more mournful overall.

I only wish it could have been released as a 4K UHD - the digital intermediate was completed at 4K and I imagine the DCP will reveal the stunning verdant landscapes with even greater lustre, than the blu-ray does. The picture did look soft as well, although it might be how it looks theatrically in full resolution, as it is very effects-heavy.

Oh - and if we're talking poster art, I prefer this one.

I’d like to get this, but there’s no listing of a BluRay on Amazon- I think they offer a DVD, which I won’t get.

That is a great poster. I loved this. I was surprised at how straightforward it was. I laughed out loud at the opening scene of Colin Farrell's character walking through the village. Makes my list of best pictures of the year.

Found it, and ordered. Thanks, Reggie.

If Banshees wins Best Picture, maybe Disney will upgrade it later. Parasite was originally Blu-ray only from Universal and then got a UHD release after its win. Of course, there's no guarantee. But I don't think it is out of the realm of possibility.

This is a Disney release, and they've had an ongoing spat with Amazon regarding stocking issues of pre-orders for some time. Although some people have reported success more recently, and they do seem to get things in eventually, I simply don't trust Amazon if it's a Disney release anymore. I just go straight to another retailer. The last time I got a new Disney release from Amazon was November 2016.

I was surprised that I saw this title at the local Wal Mart this morning- doesn’t seem to be a film that would fly off the shelves at this store.

I see what you're saying, but it it is a major release distributed by Disney.

When I got mine from Best Buy on release week, there were three copies. They aren't stocking it to the level that they would a Marvel title or a Disney or Pixar branded film. But It was still enough to provide it as an option while it is a new release.

I just watched In Bruges. A bit slow at times, but it has a ferocity mixed with dark comedy- a similar film in tone to Three Billboards. Anxious to see this one.

What I liked about this one is that even though it reunites the cast of In Bruges, McDonagh gives them something completely different to play with each other. A lesser filmmaker would probably have just tried to replicate that movie, which would have been easy to do. But this approach is far more interesting precisely because the plot isn't really like In Bruges at all.

There’s probably a mixture of ferocious and black comedy here, right?

The film is ... interesting.

My girlfriend and I saw it on HBO last week (sorry, I couldn't blindly buy this on Blu-ray) and we were both baffled by the end of it.

I suppose, looking back on it, we were taking the film way too seriously, and as a result, we were often horrified and depressed by what we saw.

And, I often have the ability to pick up on dark comedies. For some reason, we both weren't in the frame of mind for it and were mostly unimpressed.

Fortunately, for all of you, our opinions are in the minority. I see rave reviews for this film all over the Internet.
