The movie just didn't grab me and whilst I think it may more accurately depict what might happen during a real pandemic than previous movie attempts, it still feels like they pulled back on the reality so as not to scare the public and gave it a kinda hollywood happy ending.

The studios really seem to want to kill the BD format with the public, with all the advanced Java crap and maybe that is their medium term intention: for everything to be PPV via VOD.

I've noticed that my OPPO-BDP83 seem to always have issues loading up newer Warner Bros. / New Line movies. It will just freeze and not load it.

The best solution, as mentioned here, turn the unit on, don't enter a disc and clear the Persistant Storage. This usually works all the time, though it's a giant hassle

red boxed it last night. nothing special about the transfer, just another br that could have been done better.

liked the movie and plot a lot. seemed realistic and like the way they introduced
financial greed as a motive for many individuals and institutions. that part was something of an eye opener.

well acted, worth watching. i enjoyed the film.

What exactly did you think was wrong with it?
