If you want NTSC, I think there is a Region 4 from Brazil.
this is going to be good. i didnt get to see it at the movies but on my screen, it will be a treat. btw i liked Ladykillers, the one i don't lke to even think aout is Intolerable Cruelty.
And I preferred Intolerable Cruelty to The Ladykillers, but only marginally.
Interesting. The film is edited in Final Cut Pro (Mac-based), which I use at work in every day (editing news-stories): Macworld | Final Cut Pro and the making of 'No Country for Old Men' Cool! Great movie. I just love the look that Roger Deakins uses in many of his films (addition to "'No Country for Old Men", he also shot "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford" and "In the Valley of Elah"!). That mixture of grittiness, beauty and realism. Sometimes almost low-lit, but yet always bringing the best out from everything that´s on the screen. Can´t wait this on Blu-ray.
Cant wait. And I find Ladykillers to be hysterical. Like Tony, Intolerable Cruelty is the only Coen Bros film is really dont like.
Picked this up yesterday on BR after seeing it several times at home. As for the BR, it is excellent although I was a tad underwhelmed by the sound design. The PCM track conveyed all the information that is there (I heard sounds buried in the mix, phones ringing, voices on the other end of the phone, etc.), but there wasn't much in the surrounds save for the wind effects. At times, i found myself wanting more effects in the surrounds to bring the landscape on the screen into my room, but alas no such luck. Eh, regardless, the BR is a top-notch representation of a top-notch film.
Saw this over the weekend. Killer. Just curious though: I had some feezing/pausing going on. About 3 times during the movie. I have the Sharp player with the latest f/w. But, this is also my 1st BD rental from Netflix. (I haven't had any problems with discs purchased brand new though.) The disc did look OK though. Figured I start with the movie itself, if anyone has had any problems, then ping other Sharp owners, and other Netflix users. Thanks.
Just goes to show how personal comedy can be. Ladykillers left me cold, but Intolerable Cruelty cracks me up every time. The BR of No Country is a sterling example of a disc done right: faithful to the source, with no tinkering or concessions to the "no grain" crowd. And the film itself remains a stunner. It plays a little differently each time I watch it. It's going to age well. M.
I don't know if this has been mentioned anywhere, in a review of the DVD, etc. There is a missing scene on the BD of No Country for Old Men. It was probably edited out on purpose, but I can't find information to that effect. Lewellyn (played by Josh Brolin) buys some boots at a clothing store, and has a conversation with the clerk. Later, he show the blisters from walking in the boots. Another scene has him return to the store, wearing the boots and a hospital gown, and the same clerk says "how're those boots holding up?" The original scene, where he buys the boots, is not on the BD anywhere. I know, because I saw the movie in the theater, and I have just watched the BD for the first time. Anybody have any information about this?
There is a scene of him going into the store and asking about boots. There is a scene of him tending some blisters on his feet. On the BD. Not what you mean?
Ok, I'm wrong. Brain fart. The scene is there. I guess I was thrown by the fact that, after Lewellyn loses his boots when he jumps in the river, he goes *home*. Why wouldn't he have another pair of boots?
Wow that's really odd to hear. Having not seen this in the theater (and yet to watch my BD copy) this sounds like an odd situation. Could the omission have been a transfer error?
So nevermind? I'm confused.
I'm pretty sure it's a "nevermind". The scenes I mentioned are on the BD, and I think Dee meant those are the scenes he was thinking of. I last watched the BD 3-4 days ago, it's not like I have any super movie memory...
