Then again, maybe it got better?
NOW, wait a minute here....
You're saying the BD was screwed up and you couldn't really watch it and yet Melancholia is "a truly boooooooooring film?"

TOL has an entirely different plot from Melancholia.
The only comparison, IMO, is there is a good chance if someone likes one they will probably like the other.
Both films can be described as impressionistic
cinema, and both were easily the best films I saw last year.
These are NOT movies for the young....
