Good book too. Jules Verne wrote some great books.

All three carry impressive audio and video, but interestingly it's Casino Royale -- with its ROCKING, aggressive Dolby TrueHD mix and jaw-dropping HD picture quality -- and Skyfall that look and sound the best.

I actually had to take a look on my shelves to see what movies I had on what format. Turns out that I have both Casino Royale and Skyfall on Blu-ray, while Quantum of Solace is on DVD. So it would seem (more through luck than judgment) that I picked the right two to have on Blu-ray.

Off-hand, I think the other Bond movies that I have on Blu-ray are Moonraker and For Your Eyes Only. There might be one or two others.

On the subject of Star Wars, especially for newbies of the series, the following article provides an interesting take on which order to watch the series in. There is the "narrative structure order" and then the "machete version"...

http://www.theguardian.com/film/film...ually-watch-it


Since I have already previously seen all six movies, I am just going to go ahead and watch it in order from 1 to 6 when the time comes again (maybe over Christmas), but I thought this article was worth consideration at least.

I am getting pretty excited for the new Star Wars movie and I will probably watch the original 3 films before I see The Force Awakens. I am actually going to see the movie twice in the same week. Once by myself and I will take my daughter/mom the second time.

You guys talking about Bond, I still have to buy those on BD since I only own Skyfall on BD. I enjoy all the bond movies and especially the girls!


Back to some horror, I recently watched Hannibal Rising and this movie is kind of a sleeper. When I first watched it a few years ago, I thought it was ok. But after watching it this week, I though it was pretty good. Of course it pales to The Silence of the Lambs, but on a stand alone film it holds it own. The movie is also a mix of thriller, horror and suspense.

Now that I've had a few days to digest the month's viewing, here are the awards for the films I watched in the 2015 October Movie Marathon!

Best overall: Crimson Peak
Scariest: We Are Still Here
Most unnerving: Creep and Sheitan(tie)
Most fun: Goosebumps
Best unexpected discovery (older film): Girly
Best unexpected discovery (newer film): Housebound and Rammbock: Berlin Undead (tie)
Biggest letdown: Poltergeist 3D
Worst: From a Whisper to a Scream

It's always interesting to see which films are more memorable a year later, too. Sometimes I look at the title and can't even recall watching it!

I still need to see some of those flicks but I am in agreement.

For me, the best Horror flick I have seen this go around was Triangle. That impacted me on many different levels. Crimson Peak is right there next to it and shockingly my experience at the cinema wasn't a horror story!

The kid has good taste! I decided years ago that it is also my favorite in the series, and ranks in my Top 5 movies of all time. I remember back in the summer of 1983 seeing it several times at the theater!

Not sure why Pixels got such a bad rap. It's perfect and the true HD audio is so good.

My son loved it and I'm the one who grew up with those games. I think people just hate the stars and didn't even give it a chance. And then they moan that all the movies are sequels and reboots.

People are so weird. That movie is fun and I think that's the real issue. The Donkey Kong bass at the end moved my window blinds like a poltergeist.

Yeah pixels is on my radar to see! I will definitely give it a rent!

We had a family movie night with Inside Out tonight. Really good movie and my kids loved it! The extra animated shorts were great too! I also received my X Files double feature movie and I hope to watch it tomorrow.

Moore had one of the best Bond movies ever (Spy Who Loved Me) along with some of the worst. He was certainly showing his age in his final two pictures which didn't help.

I recall seeing a few in theaters from this generation, including Octopussy and Die Another Day...


That brings me to another very vital aspect of every Bond film -- the opening title sequence and the music accompanying it. In my opinion, the best opening sequence was in Die Another Day, with Madonna belting out the title track during the credits. From there, I think Casino Royale worked really, really well with Chris Cornell's "You Know My Name" and then I'd have to say Adele's "Skyfall" from that film and lastly Alicia Keys' track for Quantum...

I have some strange "format mixtures" as well, where a couple of films from a franchise may be on DVD and others on Blu...

Most notably, in my collection, it's the Superman films -- I own Superman II and Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut on DVD, but own Superman: The Movie and Superman Returns on Blu...


Go figure.


Casino Royale has a kick-ass, absolutely demo-quality TrueHD mix (the re-issued Collector's Edition Blu-ray; the title's first release on Blu was equipped with a fairly effective-less uncompressed PCM track that sounded no better than the Dolby Digital 5.1 mix from the DVD -- I used to own the DVD of Casino Royale, so I was very familiar with its Dolby track, which was almost as aggressive as the TrueHD mix of the Collector's Edition Blu-ray.) From the punch of the bass to the wickedly hot and almost overcooked mastering level of the track, the TrueHD mix on the Casino Royale Collector's Edition Blu-ray is a great pick.


Further, I wasn't that impressed with Quantum of Solace's DTS-HD Master Audio track, though I suppose it was fitting for the "weakest" film in the Craig trilogy -- when Skyfall came along, the visuals are what stood out on that Blu-ray, with quasi-reference quality color saturation, detail levels, depth of field and noise-free elements. Here's an interesting tidbit about Skyfall's DTS-HD Master Audio track on the Blu-ray release: There's a sequence where Javier Bardem's character is chased by Bond into the catacombs of London's subway system, and when Bardem releases that explosive that sends the train rushing at Bond, this is accompanied by an absolute WALLOP of deep LFE which made my sub bottom out the first time I played the disc, because my volume was up and I didn't know that scene was gonna hit so hard...

The Ewoks are a draw by you'd be surprised how many times she's brought up the evil wizard (Emperor) and Star Vather being a ghost at the end. Not to mention being a Chewie and Yoga fan.

I hope one day we get to buy the original release of all three Star Wars films. My daughter loves Return of the Jedi but when Vader says "NOOOOOO!" at the end, I still cringe at that part.


We are going to DisneyLand in a few weeks and my daughter has never been on the Star Tours ride and she is going to love it!

We have a Disney trip in May.

I think the changes to Jedi were among the worst, the ghosts at the end, the musical, etc. Still it's a great flick.

I think the changes to Jedi were among the worst, the ghosts at the end, the musical, etc. Still it's a great flick.

Oh yeah I still love Jedi but damn those changes!

I watched "The Last Shift" last night which was added to Netflix the other day. I don't agree with Oink on this one. I thought it was good though it might miff some horror fans as it turns out to be more of a concept movie than straight ahead horror. It does have a good "chills" factor. In fact Netflix calls it a "thriller." Four lost flashlights.
