Thanks again Mike and Patrick (even though you panned Knight and Day which I enjoyed )


Michael gave The Crazies (BD) high marks this week:

http://www.hometheaterforum.com/forum/thread/301741/htf-blu-ray-review-the-crazies



Matt gave the Leopard high marks, had some video quality issues with Predator, and gave Everlasting Moments a recommended rating:

Possibly renting The Crazies based on a friend's recommendation. (Although I told him to see Toy Story 3 ASAP, so I have a feeling this recommendation isn't a fair trade!)

The Crazies was fun, at least for me. I'd recommend it to just about anyone who likes a scary/bloody movie.


Nothings really getting me excited this week, again, but you never know what's going to catch my eye in WalMart or Costco. Need to go to both today for packing materials.

I'll pick up the Leave It To Beaver series set at some point when it's on sale but there's really nothing for me this week.


If you're into horror movies, I thought The Crazies was pretty good too (frankly, I'd say it's better than the original which was really hampered by its micro-budget). Hot Tub Time Machine is funny enough if you realize that you're seeing a movie that is intended to be very silly and goofy.


Thanks for the prices, guys!

Thanks for the Roundup. Just Percy Jackson for me. Prices are a bit higher than I'd hoped (especially as there is no stand alone blu ray, just the combo pack).

Thanks for another weekly roundup, Mike and Pat.

I haven't seen Warlords either, but it's highly doubtful that's correct. For one thing, Jet Li's character's costume, including his hair style, in that shot looks completely wrong for the historical setting of Warlords. And that shot does look very much like it came from one scene in Hero.


FWIW, the historical settings for those 2 films are over 2000 years apart (and almost as far removed from each other as any 2 eras when China was ruled under one emperor) -- and the setting for the Warlords (during the waning decades of the Qing Dynasty, the last in China) is also fairly distinct and easily recognizable from much of the rest of Chinese history (and very well represented in the cinema, et al).

Only learned about this today, but Best Buy has a web-only "Stars and Stripes" special sale that started yesterday and ends today. I couldn't resist picking up Buster Keaton's The General on Blu Ray - for $9.99 plus shipping. (The disc is now showing back-ordered, probably due to the number of people suddenly hitting the site, and my confirmation shows an estimated delivery date of "7/10/2010 to 7/24/2010" with standard ground shipping, but for that price, I'll wait.) I would have loved to pick up Battleship Potemkin for that price, as well, but I'm pushing the budget as it is this week. That will have to be a Netflix rental. I'm not sure I'd watch that one as often as I'll watch The General in any case. Sergei is IMPORTANT in the history of cinema and all that, and this is one of those films that should be in every serious film fan's collection the way Paradise Lost should be in every serious reader's library, but I think Buster's films stand up better to repeated "viewing for pleasure." I can't remember the last time I took Paradise Lost down off the shelf just because I was looking for a story to read, either.


Regards,


Joe

That's about $10 more than I paid for it at Target back when it was released.
