Shot on Alexa 65.  I'm pretty sure a huge amount of post was a given, as any imperfections would be hugely visible.

Only around 15% of the finished product actually wound up being ALEXA 65 footage.

Oblivion is a masterclass in cinematography.

15%...?

...I really should know better than to believe the Arri marketing machine.   My bad.

It's fine, I believe they wanted to make a big thing of it because they knew it'd be a big film and it was an early example of ALEXA 65 footage. It's mainly the big wide shots.

The last time I checked there were only about 30 ALEXA65s in the world, and they were £8,000 per day per body with no weekly discount. Even on Hollywood budgets it's tough to justify exclusively those.

And the small matter of the data rate being 12 minutes per half terabyte.

"Before I go" Seann William Scott. My Mrs told me I was watching it whether I liked it or not because she wanted to see it and it was date night. Ho Hum I thought, might as well humour her. But she was spot on! The trailer doesn't do it justice. What a hilarious, emotional movie! I was laughing so hard at some points that I was crying. If it wasn't the Sister in Law with a tendancy to sleep masturbate, then it was the brother with a stiffy talking to his Officer with a Camel toe, both at eye level. 

The basis is that a guy has nothing to live for goes back to his home town to face his tormentor and the girl he couldn't ask out, one last time and settle old scores before he kills himself. Whilst it has a dark storyline, it proves to be a heart warming, hilarious movie covering love, weight, kids, sexuality and death. 9/10. Surprise of the year for me!!

From a "Rolling Stone's" review...

It was one of the few small U.S. films to genuinely wow audiences at this year's Cannes Film Festival. And somehow, as it transitioned from a limited opening to a wide release over the weekend, in a landscape dominated by superheroes and foul-mouthed sausages, this critically praised, minor-key gem has slowly emerged as the unlikely sleeper hit of the summer.

Best film I've seen this year. Trust me.

I agree with @Iconic Ride in that this is a great film. Went to see it with my daughter on Friday night and to be honest it's brilliant. The story is very strong and the performances are excellent with Jeff Bridges putting in one of his best performances, ever, and I thought the closing 5 minutes really closed the ending, in a way most modern films don't..

It's a modern day traditional western - everything is there including the strong social commentary and the relationship between Bridges and his "partner" is brilliantly done.

I'm looking forward to going to see the move about the pilot who landed his plane in the Hudson saving everybody on board. The one with Tom Hanks in it as the Captain. Trailer looks great. I'm struggling to understand why he was/is being investigated so fiercely?

Looking forward to it myself, Michael, for rather obvious reasons. The combination of Eastwood (as Producer and Director) and Hanks promises to make for a top notch flic. FAA accident investigations are, by their very nature, always fierce by design. No stone is left unturned, and the trailer implied that there was some question about his decision to go for the river instead of attempting to return to the airport. There are a number of reasons why that was likely not a realistic option. I won't go into them here, and even if I did, it would just be another "Monday morning quarterbacking" "20 20 hindsight" exercise by another armchair "expert," though I'd like to think that my background would give me at least a minor advantage. In any case, the purpose of Hollywood movies is to make lots of money, and over dramatization is a tried and true methodology to achieve that goal. I go to the show to be entertained, not to pick apart the inconsistencies that may surface in the telling. Hopefully they got most of this story "right."

I believe in simulations they only made it back to the airport less than 50% of the time, and the rest of the time it didn't end well.

SWMBO and I recently saw The Beatles, 8 Days a Week, a Ron Howard film about the early touring years. Quite a nostalgic trip down memory lane. Well worth a watch if you were (or still are) a fan, or even if you're not. Got a big kick out of the final frames of the movie, depicting the Fab 4's hasty post concert exit out the back of Candlestick Park Stadium (San Francisco) in their armored car...the very one I deftly managed to lay a paw on ( I was a younger man, and oblivious to the concept of one's mortality) as it barreled past in the night, not realizing that it was to be their last touring performance ever.

Sounds worth a watch.

I watched Bridge of Spies last night in 4K. Not as visually impressive as The Martian of course in the same resolution although the sets were very good, but a great film. Spent a couple of hours after researching the story and the film was pretty accurate.

Bridge of Spies was indeed an excellent film, and though Hanks played the central character, Mark Rylance provided his usual riveting supporting performance as well. His role as Thomas Cromwell in the T.V. series "Wolf Hall" completely blew me away,  and I'm usually first in line for any movie he's in since.

Stranger fact today - we have a cat coming in that is called Flynn Rider (you'll have to look it up if you don't know the relevance to Kimbers post!)

I really hope Gareth Edwards finally gets it right. I think he's the most overrated director on the planet, his Godzilla was atrocious.

Also very, very few films actually benefit from  a 4K screening. I am struggling to think of more than a couple which are genuine 4K products.

The Martian looked stunning in 4K.

It would have looked equally as stunning in 2K, seeing as it is a 2K film
