    Those who have gotten the 4K iTunes of Unforgiven, how does it look?

    No thanks to everyone here ( :blink: ) I ended up getting about 10 movies. I think I already said I tend to save digital purchases for movies I like that are only available on DVD or are expensive on BR and aren't available for rent. I did get The Girl On the Train (which I think is totally under-rated) and Unforgiven since they're 4K (which will never be $5 on disc) and I don't care if they don't have HD soundtracks.

    A few obscure ones I suggest that I haven't mentioned yet.

    One False Move - gritty, low budget crime drama with a great cast.
    Secretary - Weird, psychological dark comedy that defies description.
    The Rapture (1991) - One of The Most intriguing, baffling, divisive, ambiguous and absolutely fascinating movies I've ever seen. I get a different meaning from it every time I watch it.

    Damn! I wasn't planning on buying anything else, but Darkest Hour was too good a price to pass up.

    Has anyone watched Ad astra?

    I’ve been stalking the codes for sale topics and no one has been lower than $10 that hasn’t sold in seconds so I was thinking I’ll just snag it off iTunes for the current $10 sale.

    What do you want to know? I watched it in a movie theater and have the 4K disc along with the digital.

    Just opinion on the movie.
    You bought it after seeing it so you must have liked it.

    Tony, I don’t want to say so much that it’s bad (or good) but that it’s a very different movie from what the trailers, posters and ads say it’s about. I would recommend it more as a rental first than a blind buy because of that.

    I read much of thst topic until it got into too spoilery stuff.
    The movies it’s been compared to I like, so it seems like I might like this one.

    I liked it to. Working on a review of it as well. The score has been in my listening rotation almost nonstop since I picked it up.

    I was tempted on Ad Astra as a blind buy, too, but decided to wait. It will probably be available for $5 eventually. I have too much unwatched material right now anyway.

    Hmm.

    Do 20th Century movies drop that far?
