Just returned this to the Red Box around the corner.

I enjoyed this movie but I dont think I will be purchasing it.

Trying to enjoy the simple things in life.

Yes Wall Street had all the eye candy you could want and it was a easy and fun plot to follow. For me Jonah Hill was the scene stealer in that movie.

But if you where around in the 70"s American Hustle was a lot fun and had a intriguing plot with a lot of twists and turns.
A movie you had to follow close, to really enjoy.

I own both Blu Ray's.

Going by AMERICAN HUSTLE, no one smoked in the 70s. WOLF captured its era far better than AH.

I cannot say enough about the brilliant performances of the film's wonderful ensemble cast, particularly Jennifer Lawrence as the deeply flawed but charming Rosalyn. Lawrence was my pick for Best Supporting Actress.

It will come as no surprise that I rented the BD today and watched the film again tonight. I am pleased to report that it was better than ever the third time. thorough. American Hustle passes my acid test for outstanding movies: It gets better every time I see it. Thought the PQ and HD audio quality were wonderful. This is a BD that I will be buying.

Watching my copy tonight. Hopefully I'm able to give it a 10/10 smile.gif

Hi Ralph smile.gif

This was a good movie but didn't live up to the expectations i had hoped for considering the movies it was up against and a few that weren't considered . I found it hard to get into but if anyone carried the movie it was Bale ! his performance was incredible and the girls here delivered in spades as well, Copper whom I like, I found a little too much of himself and not the character he was portraying , De niro well of course just flat out solid! all in all well written but I've seen better this year " Rush & Saving Mr. Banks come to mind along with "The Wolf of Wall Street " wink.gif

Interesting that Robert De Niro is nowhere to be found in the credits of this movie. There is reference to Mr. Tellegio's Consigliere in the credits but nothing for the actual character (De Niro), I thought this is unusual.

Good movie. Nothing spectacular in terms of audio/video that would get me to purchase it on bluray to watch later.
