Yes, I'm the same, but this movie seems to have some pretty good awards, and have heard from a number of people that it is really good.
Plus I get bonus points if I bring home a movie that doesn't have exploding heads, lol !!

Last night ↑ on Blu.
We have a new force here, and it's a young girl. She's ... different. ...Her name is Daisy Ridley (Rey).
Unfortunately, for me @ this present time, that was only the 2D version. I will have to repurchased it again later this year, probably around Christmas.
But I simply couldn't resist, the force is just too strong. C'est la vie, and then we eclipse ourselves, naturally.

My take: I wasn't prepared for a "soft" type of entertaining coming from a movie like Star Wars. ...Soft because it wasn't loaded like some other films from Marvel and DC comic books. No, this is Lucas style; space, large vistas, sand, spaceships, funny creatures, funny acting, funny interactions, languages, and great for kids...from all ages. Some parts, for me, were pretty cheesy, like melted soft swiss cheese on crackers on top of black forest ham and Italian tomatoes slices.
Simply put it was easy to descend through your tongue and throat, with a large glass of fresh milk. ...What all kids and adults love for after school collation @ the director's office. That, or on your knees with your arms crossed in the air (remember that on grade one?).

My eyes were mostly riveted on Rey's face...eyes, mouth, overall facial expression, and walking and running style.
The new round robot was fun to watch too but less than Rey.

What was smooth is the Star Wars signature; the transitions between quintessence and action scenes. Don't ask, just watch...you'll know what it means.
The guys in white plastic suits were still in it, and you would have to pay me extra to wear one of those suits; they look like slaves inside, with restricted movements and head vision.
And the dark side's new black mask wasn't as good as the one we're used to, IMO. ...Even his voice wasn't menacing; it was smooth.
Typical Star Wars action scene with laser guns and light sabers and spaceships collisions. ...Zip, zap, slip in the way (like the song from Simon & Garfunkel), smooth again and not like Gandalf in LOTR with his long cane with a blinding light @ the top of his crystal.

It takes dedication for Star Wars fans like me in making you part of the same movie experience as I saw it using only words.
And besides my eyes are green, most likely a different color than most of you; so I see differently, and hear not the same because the shape of my ears are like small crispy oval pancakes the type they served in maple syrup cabins in Quebec during the season's festivities and food. ...April.

The same actors that were in the original Star Wars (1977); Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill ...they were still there too in this one (2016), wow!
That is 40 years later! ...They didn't look exactly the same, but they weren't supposed to. They were wiser too, except for Harrison. ;-)

It was fine and fun overall: 80.5 (that's for everything...film's storyline, acting, decors, CGI, picture and music score).
Feel good about the Blu; the quality of the picture and audio is into a galaxy far far away. ...Meaning excellent.

Last word: Smooth. And of course I recommend it; it's a Star Wars film, not a Peanuts movie. ...The Peanuts Movie I liked it too, in 3D.
So, comes next Christmas (just a guess), I'll spend more money and get the 3D version, to encourage Disney studios and in helping to provide for all their families.
And I bet this one will also look splendid in 4K, because the pic quality was very good in 2K. ...Sound was fine too, and the music matching Star Wars trademark signature...sort of; perhaps not as good as III - Revenge of the Sith (still my personal favorite).

'The Legend of 1900' in my book is a cinema masterpiece.

On Tuesday,I watched Star Wars: The Force Awakens and liked it a lot. I agree that Daisy Ridley is an appealing young actress. We will no doubt see more of her, not only in the upcoming Star Wars VIII but elsewhere.

You betcha. There is something "fresh/distant/independent" about her (Rey) that adds to her charisma, I think. ...And BB-8 rolling.

Not many actresses as young and beautiful as Daisy Ridley can bring to bear the edginess that she displayed in Star Wars VII. She reminds me of the young Emily Blunt. Not that Blunt is old, of course, but Blunt is nine years older than Ridley.

Yesterday I watched Exodus, Gods And Kings.




Well well well.... what a boring mess! And what was Ridley Scott thinking??? Save for beautiful images and impeccable design from beginning to end, there's not much here to enjoy. Besides, I tend to keep my mind slightly open for that kind of things but I don't know if I can't stomach any more of these biblical and religious bull*****. I also noticed, once again, that the egyptians are depicted as a bunch of effeminate idiots, it's not the first time and it gets really annoying, to say it politely. I guess the "chosen ones" are the only ones allowed to be smart in these films...

Anyway... what a disappointment. It's frustrating because on the other end, the film looks so good! Cast was fine too.

Forsaken, with Kiefer and Donald Sutherland, for the first time on screen together, playing, of course, father and son.




I love westerns. This one offers nothing new to the genre but it is so well done it grabbed my attention from the first image to the last. Solid directing and excellent performances all around. The two Sutherlands (specially Kiefer), Demi Moore, Michael Wincott, and the others, all were perfect in their role. Of course I was expecting some bad guys to be jackbauered at some point This film proves that as long as something is done well, by talented people, it doesn't necessarily have to be new to be good.

Yesterday I saw Blue Is The Warmest Color with Léa Seydoux and Adèle Exarchopoulos.



3 hours that felt much shorter. The two leads are simply amazing, they are spontaneous, fresh, full of emotions. To be honest, I didn't think I would like it as much as I did. At one point the fact that it's about two women in love becomes secondary, the most important is their love, desires, distress, happiness, sadness. Really a powerful film. Much has been said about the director and the controversies surrounding the shooting of the film, but at least, it somehow paid off and gave us a unique film.

I sure agree with your above comment. I started the journey very casually without expecting much @ all. But the power is that it grabbed me and didn't let it go for the entire duration.
What was the biggest helper was our two main actresses, their attractive faces and true emotions of their youth. I too found it unique and cinema vérité, souplesse, elegance simple, fatalité de jeunesse. Not for everyone, but for the ones who it is, its rewards are real. The cinematography espouses perfectly our two young leaders; it's natural and beautiful.

This ain't no Star Wars, but it is a new force awakening much closer to us in reality of our blue planet than in a galaxy far far away, with laser guns and the dark side toys.
This ain't no Deadpool, but much more serious. It's different, for cinemaphiles, the French cinema. ...No Marvel comics stuff, no Luc Besson stuff. It's all about the montage surrounding two captivating young faces.



By the way, in Canada our dollar is low, our Blu-rays are outrageously expensive; get this one from the USA, the Criterion Collection. Encourage the artists from France through the USA channel distribution. Don't encourage Canadian greed. Canada is a beautiful country, but when it comes to Blu-ray entertainment on this movie here, get it from the USA; invest your money where it counts the most with this one...and not in Canada. ...And same thing with UHD (4K) Blu-rays; don't buy them in Canada, no freekin' way @ $45 a pop (with tax)!
That above BR title from the Criterion Collection is less than $20 in the US; in Canada it's not even worth mentioning @ more than twice! And it's not even from the Criterion Collection.

P.S. I'll have to check the Canadian actor's pair, father and son...Forsaken. Thx for the tip Nic.
P.P.S. Exodus: Gods and Kings ... very very shiny picture, in 3D it's cooler, and it's Ridley's own take...too much grandeur not enough simplicity but then...this is sparta...the scripts...the scriptures...the interpretations...the polishing touches...the shine shoes...the Ridley Scott moviemaking.
This is history in the making and from the makings. We love when we play...nous sommes du soleil...yes.

I was sure that hmv had it and was ready to blind buy yesterday...until I found out that it's sold out everywhere, even online. I'm not interested in the non-criterion edition so yes it will be amazon. I watched the film on Netflix yesterday but will gladly watch it again once I get the criterion version.

Nic, my comment was for the general Canadian population, on this particular BR title, and also on UHD BR titles.
The system encourages us to shop in the US and not in our own country...no wonder our dollar's worth zip!
Many products related to entertainment are like that...outrageous prices here. So smart shoppers spend their money in the US. ...It's good for the US economy.

@ HMV you'll get the best deal (only $10).



BLUE IS THE WARMEST COLOR/WDS/R

MOVIE











BLUE IS THE WARMEST COLOR/WDS/R on Blu-ray

$15.00
2 for $20.00
Date of release: 2/25/2014
Format: Blu-ray
Catalogue: BRD5243
Supplier: MONGREL MEDIA


* But @ amazon.ca the same Mongrel Media BR title: http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Blue-i.../91453/#Review
That same BR Criterion Collection title is more than HMV but less than amazon. @ only $10 it's a no-brainer for people who appreciate advanced French cinema. But it's from amazon.com → http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Blue-I...Blu-ray/77701/
- The BR Criterion Collection titles @ HMV are expensive, very. ...And 3D, and UHD. But they are expensive too @ Walmart, and @ Best Buy.

Thanks Bob But with movies as good as this one, I don't mind paying more for the criterion version, and I want the criterion dammit I'm not interested in the Mongrel disc, even if it was free ...the french edition of Cinema Paradiso already cost me about $40 including shipping, but these movies are special...

Ok Nic, I gave you the scoop about various prices. And when I said that @ HMV for 2/4/$20 (only $10 - just buy another BR you like) that was the best price for it (Mongrel Media or not).

But if for that BR title you're a CC man → https://www.amazon.ca/Criterion-Coll.../dp/B00GPPXNQ2

By the way, @ HMV both Dracula & Leon the Professional (4K remastered picture, with Dolby Atmos), are 2 for $20 (ten bucks each).
And The Fifth Element is only $8.00 @ amazon.ca (4K remastered version as well, and with Dolby Atmos).
https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B01...3HAZXF4NW4NNX0
_______

Last night I just revisited The Hateful 8ight, and it grows on me (very good thing). ...That one was $25 (+ tax), and still is.

I noticed that several picture covers have disappeared; just too many to restore.
And the two messages above are the two main reasons why. It's a computer glitch from blu-ray.com and it affects many picture covers by simply making them invisible.

I revisited The Martian in 3D last night. Too bad that 4K is only 2D. And too bad too that Dolby Atmos is exclusive to some 4K movie titles...FOX studios, and more .... But, you can use your 2D►3D up-converter for the 4K flicks. Or can you?

* I'll try movie picture covers from Amazon or eBay from now on.

Hi Steve; good grouping.
_________

♦ I watched Deadpool last night:



Alright, first, this ain't no ordinary comic super-hero, it's a super-comic hero. ...It is so super comic that it has been banned in China for its over exaggerated sense of extreme physical humor. They don't make all of them like it.

It starts in slow-mo. And in that slow-mo opening people are flying up in the air from a small altercation. If you have no humor it's better to let others who do watching it; go for ice cream and pizza in town @ the pub where they watch ping pong or bowling or darts tournaments.
The picture quality is awesome, and the audio just appropriate for this genre. All in all technically this Blu is impeccable...top notch excellence, and I bet that in 4K it must be even more resolved "humorously".

I think we need more flicks like that in the world so that people can start to relax and laugh and enjoy more life.
The story? Well, it's not Lawrence of Arabia, or Casablanca. Let's put it this way. Best is to check it out and see if it rattles your boat smoothly.
Me I liked it; it's great fun entertainment. ...Overall (everything): 89

^^^ I saw Deadpool in the theater and loved it, 8 Stars out of 10. As NorthSky told us, it's not your everyday superhero movie. It was raunchy and violent but I laughed my fanny off. Have not yet seen the BD but it will no doubt be as much fun that way as it was on the big screen.

I revisited Avengers: Age of Ultron last night. ...In (((3D))).



In 3D it was great...the film itself I prefer the first one personally.
There were some awesome scenes in 3D, and the surround sound immersion was the usual Disney/Marvel's high productive dignity/integrity/value.
And the audio bass was amply satisfying. ...I simply added nine/ten decibels to the overall master volume control on my pre/pro.

Same here... It was pretty funy, and not at all what I was expecting. I haven't watched it in our theater yet, but the music was excellent in our Living Room setup.

I watched it with my nephew and he was amazed I knew all the music in the movie. I then went to my CD collection and pulled out my copy of Wham - Make It Big. I then pulled out a photo album and showed him a picture of me with my '80's haircut circa 1984 taken right after a Duran Duran concert a friend and I went to. :-)

was pretty good, well done, no over the top action or heroics, just a good retelling of an amazing true story.





So-so, my time could have been better spent.


I watched this on the telly, but did anyone see "All the Way" with Bryan Cranston as LBJ?
Was a very good watch and he was amazing as LBJ
