Hi Def Movie Review: Planet Earth: The Complete Collection

April 26, 2007 |

Planet Earth: The Complete Collection (BBC) (Blu-ray)
Featuring: Original narration by Sir David Attenborough

Folks, I’ll put it plain and simple: THIS IS WHAT HIGH DEFINITION HOME THEATER SYSTEMS WERE MADE FOR! Run out now for Tuesday’s dual release in Blu-ray and HD DVD and plunk down the $50+ bucks you’ll find it for at most retailers, then run home and pop in the first disc in this collection and be simply astounded by the breathtaking detail and jaw-dropping clarity of this acclaimed production. This is the full, 11-part BBC series and not the Discovery Channel version that aired in the US with narration by Sigourney Weaver (which was widely panned despite the visual brilliance), rather this is the more thorough version that aired in Britain and Europe with each episode ends with 10-minute Planet Earth Diaries and includes 90 minutes not shown on the Discovery Channel version as well as a bonus movie: The Dream Is Alive.

Blu-ray Disc Review: The Pursuit of Happyness

March 28, 2007 |

The Pursuit of Happyness

(Sony) [Blu-ray]
Featuring: Will Smith, Jaden Smith, Thandie Newton, and Brian Howe

I didn’t see this film on it’s theatrical release… I’m generally not into manufactured feel-good flicks, but on its video run, The Pursuit of Happyness turned out to be exactly what I thought… Read More

Blu-ray Disc Review: Casino Royal

March 13, 2007 |

Casino Royale [Blu-ray]
from Sony Pictures
Featuring: Daniel Craig, Eva Green, Mads Mikkelsen, and Judi Dench

There’s no doubt about it, James Bond, the venerable double-aught-seven himself, needed a serious make-over. What once worked (surprisingly well) for a jet-setting 60’s crowd of post-Camelot cold-warriors no longer worked for a generation too ADD-addled for the absurd, escapist action and too edgy, even cynical, for they type of tongue-in-cheek ribaldry and blatant sexism that was often present in their parent’s (and grandparent’s!) vision of Ian Fleming’s super spy.

Word From the Street: March 13, 2007

March 13, 2007 |

daniel-craig-eva-green-james-bond-casino-royale-5First, a major correction: Last week’s blog stated that a certain series of Blu-ray releases were slated for last week, March 6th. Apparently, my spell checker doesn’t check for stupidity, so that got sent out and published, and of course, the date should have been March 13th. I also forgot to add ” The Holiday” to that week’s release schedule (well, I argue, it’s a forgettable film). Please ignore the idiot behind the curtain… he means well, and is housebroken, but apparently his editor doesn’t parse his material, so there. Read More
