Released recently on BR, this is Francis Ford Coppola's most recently available film. Although it has a copyright of 2011, it does not appear that it ever went into wide release, if ever. Contrary to the opinion on Blu-ray.com, it looks fantastic. The movie itself has a now pudgey Val Kilmer in the lead role and is another low budget horror film, but done extremely well. The female lead is Elle Fanning, remember Super 8? One of the more important aspects of the film was that it was suppose to undergo a post conversion into 3D and if it ever did so is probably sitting somewhere in Coppola's possession. In looking at the BR I couldn't help but enable 2D--->3D conversion and it looks simply great because Coppola shot it with that in mind. Imagine that could start a new trend in how a film is shot so that the algorithm for 2D--->3D via either the high definition display or BR player makes it into 3D without any additional effort, meaning that those extravagantly priced 3D BR's could become a thing of the past. Of course, there is no chance of that happening. It has become a more than common occurrence that seeing the actual movie at the theater in 3D is simply a waste of money.
