'The Abyss' on Blu-ray...if we're lucky, James Cameron will supervise and restore it in its full glory*...in 3D.
...After he's done with 'Avatar 2, 3, and 4'.

* 3D Picture & Sound (Dolby Atmos or DTS:X). ...Brand new Remastered version. ...That would be so cool that I would run completely naked around my block three times. ...Only wearing a pair of runners. ...And I would be yelling "Right On!" @ everyone I encounter during my naked run; both arms up.

♦ UHD (4K)?

Russell Crowe in For the Moment. Filmed in Manitoba and one of a couple films Crowe did with the National Film Board of Canada back in the 90's.

Love and tragedy during WW2 flight training.

It's an awkward film, but you can see that Crowe is going to be a star.

The wikipedia says there was a widescreen DVD, but my copy from the public library is cropped to 1.33. Out of print now?

I saw it in Toronto in the early 90's. I was impressed by Crowe in Romper Stomper, and it was the next thing of his I was aware of. I thought it was a decent enough film...a tad hokey, but pretty good.

Correct. I'm a little disappointed someone got it so quickly. I have a lot more screenshot clues.

The Blu-ray features a new 4k restoration that looks pretty good, so long as you're prepared to accept that the movie is a product of early 1970s photographic fads and is very soft and heavily grainy.

That's a shot that was used regularly as a promo shot, actually. I recognized it instantly, but not in time to post.

The "fad" you're referring to is probably Geoffrey Unsworth's signature style. Look at several of his films from the 1960s and 1970s and you'll see his signature. Murder On the Orient Express has the most wonderful warm, hazy sort of look, as if just being in that past had a romantic air to it ... greatly attributable to his cinematography. Superman - The Movie is another of his classic achievements. Special visual FX might've convinced you that a man can fly, but Unsworth's photography gave Christopher Reeve and his costume the great "look" they needed for "verisimilitude" (a word that director Richard Donner has posted on signs all over the preproduction offices).

So disappointed in that one, Conan books were some of my favorite rereads growing up. The only good thing that came out of the movie were the tie ins to the Age of Conan MMO, which is quite good.

That's Rose McGowan in the image:



Not much to say for this one. Jason Momoa looks a bit more like the Frazetta paintings than Arnold S. I don't know if Howard fans care about that artwork, though...

Cute? Moi? It could have been but wasn't. I reviewed that one here: Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid (1982).

About two weeks ago I posted what I thought was a deceptive image of J Lopez, here.

That picture reminded me of another actress, but I couldn't remember who until just now.

Here she is. Name that film.

'Deja Vu' with Denzel; that's another flick that I like. ....Directed by Tony Scott ...R.I.P.

* That screenshot you just posted above; she is fighting with the villain women who has just exchanged important documents for diamonds.
'Ghost Protocol' is a very cool flick with some very cool scenes. ...My favorite 'Mission: Impossible' ...so far.
