Just watched this Film available now on Netflix. Superb. Highly recommended. Very Inspirational and a must for anyone who even slightly enjoys Motor Racing.   Uppity   https://youtu.b

OMFG

My current display is 75" and I deliberately wanted one which is 1080P rather than UHD. It's perfectly adequate for my own setup

Can't wait! My number 1 film of 2014 has a sequel and just in time because after watching the original every saturday evening when I get drunk, I may know most of the dialog! And as we all know "I am Groot!"

Wonder how Groot will look in 5K. Probably be able to see individual bark beetles.:lol:

Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk - that will teach us to keep mouth shut!

A couple of quick reviews:

Tarzan (the Legend of) 2016: Didn't hold out much hope for this as "yet another tarzan movie" really didn't appeal but after watching a clip I thought, "go for it". I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. It is set 10 years after Tarzan returns to the UK and has him being tricked into going back to be set up to be captured by an old enemy. Needless to say they miss him but capture someone else and then it's a riproaring tail full of action and awesome special effects. Absolutely one of my fave movies of the year 8.5/10

Ghostbusters (2016) on the other hand I held out loads of hope for and was unpleasantly surprised. It started well but then turned into "Melissa McCarthy" shout in an irritating voice-Fest. The story starts well and totally loses it's way and it just seems to try and outdo the original for Special effects without any substance. A huge disappointment don't bother till it's on Freebie! 3/10

I saw the Tarzan flic quite a while ago with my older son. We both enjoyed it, though I'd categorize it more as a "popcorn movie" than academy award material. A nice day's diversion and a worthwhile escape from mundane chores. Heck, I'd go see it again just to see Margot Robbie once more. What a fox! :)

 

 

Really looking forward to seeing "Arrival," just released a few days ago, to stellar reviews it appears. This weekend was completely sold out at my usual haunt.

I saw Arrival yesterday, it was much like all of Denis Villeneuve's films. Quite slow, but good tension building, nicely shot and composed and well put together.

I enjoyed it, not enough "thinking" sci-fi films these days..

Damn. was looking forward to this SciFi film but sounds like no lightsabres, imperial gunships, crazed monster baddies for the good guy to put down and rousing US patriotic save the world Trumpet tunes as the GI rides in on an armoured unicorn to place the bomb on the mothership just in time to save the world whilst a soft rock love song plays whistfully in the background as the action slo-mo's down...

Damn. Darn it! ;)

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

Interesting vid on the cars created for Mad Max Fury Road.

Immense effort to realise a vision this grand. It's an incredible film to look at if you haven't already seen it. The vehicles are roaring, snorting mechanical works of art.

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

Interesting. So the only bits where you really want the 4K, ie all the Mars stuff, it's 2K. Yay!

It's not that there is anything wrong with 2K at all, just the term 4K gets thrown about so much now it's become basically pointless. I remember a similar thing happening with "HD". I remember seeing HD shampoo.

There has been some debate on whether or not ‘The Martian’ had a 2K or 4K DI. According to The Digital Bits (as confirmed by the studio): they re-edited the movie for home release using some parts of the 2K DCP and other parts from the original 5K camera files and everything was regraded and mastered at 4K.

and are you sure it wasn't iShampoo :lol:

Haha, quite sure. The last time I paid attention to The Martian it was when the film had just come out - lot of people seeing it in the cinema "in 4K" (when there obviously was no 4K DCP).

There are a large number of films, as you'll see from that site, which are never ever, ever going to be 4K but still people claim they are. I'm never going to win that battle.

Rogue one. 7/10 for non Star Wars fans, 9/10 for fans. Great explanation as to how the flaw in the Death Star came about and rip roaring specey war/buddy movie. 

Sausage Party 6/10 Gruesome and funny but not as funny as I thought it would be. 

Kubo. 10/10 absolutely excellent stop animation movie with an excellent, moving and intelligent storyline. The animation is just awesome and it is both funny and tear jerking. As you can see I can't recommend this movie enough for kids and adults alike. Watching it twice in a week already.

Fixed it for you...

We disagree yet again Kimbers. Rogue One was 6/10 for me. Very, very flawed film in my opinion.

... this being a Film Appreciation thread, surely it's subjective?

I found Rouge one to very good, as a fan of Starwars found it to fit in well with the time lines and will not spoil it for people who have not seen it yet but blends into the first 1977 very well at the end, wish all films would do this.  

Also liked the way they did kept away from the classic starwars music, they have put their own touch to this film and yet still respected most of the old starwars themed stuff.   In fact after seeing this film i purchased the box set containing a New hope, Empire strikes back and Return of the jedi, and watched them back to back :blush:

Great video and cheers for posting,  only found out the other day that the bloke who plays the leader of the bad guys with that crazy mask on, Is also the same fellow that played the leader of the bad bike gang in the first mad max movie. :thumbup:  Must be an extremely rewarding job to be lucky enough to build machines like these for film sets for mad max, fast and furious etc.

Agree with most of the comments on here re Rogue One - thoroughly enjoyed it and the way it tied into the original trilogy was superb.

I'm just so sad that Episodes 1, 2 and 3 (the second trilogy were so crap!). But never mind the story and quality seems to be back.

Yes the other films i found to be awful,  i.e the ones with zhar zhar binks or what ever his name was,  the only good bit in those films is the part that you see skywalker burn and see him transform into vader, which was good as it explained why he was dressed/ended up looking like he does as Darth Vader.

Plenty of films sadly written off like this,  the same with the Aliens francise,   Alien 3 and Alien resurection both awful,  but hopefully Alien 5 has said it may cancel out those films and carry on from where Aliens left off.   :thumbup:   Looking forward to Promethius 2 this year also !
