Recent Viewings...

The Men Who Stare At Goats (2009)
Directed By Grant Heslov

Quirky, in the good sense of the word. George Clooney is good as usual, Ewan McGregor's accent is a little off, but the story is certainly interesting and the casting is great! I would like to have read the book prior to viewing, but alas twas not to be...

Crimson Tide (1995)
Directed By Tony Scott

One of my favourite Don Simpson/Jerry Bruckheimer productions. Great cast, great acting and a wonderfully suspenseful story. Still, Das Boot is still THE submarine movie I will be most excited to see hit the Blu-ray format. This will suffice whilst it remains absent though.

The Omega Man (1971)
Directed By Boris Sagal

Better than I Am Legend, but not as good as The Last Man On Earth. The blu-ray looks very pretty though!

Open Graves (2009)
Directed By Álvaro de Armiñán

Awful film, seriously.

The Wedding Singer (1998)
Directed By Frank Coraci

With the exception of Punch Drunk Love, this is one of Adam Sandler's best films. This release appears to have a few scenes added to the theatrical version, not sure that they added too much, but they were interesting none the less.

Baraka (1992)
Directed By Ron Fricke

Personally I have always preferred Koyansquatsi, but Baraka does have some amazing visuals and is certainly a journey made better by the high def format!
