Just thought I'd chime in and say I picked up Shaun Of The Dead + Hot Fuzz on BD Tuesday. Holy hell, so, so good. Highly reccomended.

Well, I think I'm passing on Gladiator, and I hope the reviews and sales will get someone to get their head out of their ass and redo the title. I doubt that'll happen. Guess it's off to get the 3-disc collector's edition to replace my original release one I traded in.

Braveheart is a hope they didn't Fuck that up as well. From the preliminary stuff I've heard, they haven't.

The UP Luxoflux or whatever-its-called lamp Richie Rich package dropped to $120.99 on Amazon. I'm still trying to decide if a lamp is worth $90. :-k

Wow, haven't checked the thread in awhile, and now I'm severely disappointed after reading this stuff about Gladiator. Damn shame...

Oh yeah, I hear Braveheart is good. Paramount was soley responsible for that one, IIRC.

I'm kind of worried about Forrest Gump now. It could go either way! :p

Braveheart, from everything I've read, seems solid (time to upgrade from the :ld: lol).
Looks like I am going to pre-order SW&tSD at BBy for the free steelbook cover. (It's damn cool that you get both, so if your kid dents it all to hell you still have the original)

For those who haven't seen here is the thread on Braveheart: http://www.avsforum....d.php?t=1173246

Looks pretty damn amazing IMO; I'll probably end up picking that up. Just look at the first shot in the thread; you can see the green and blue fabric, whereas on the DVD it looked like a flat brown

Braveheart looks amazing.

Gladiator is atrocious. I was going to buy it but now there is no way I am ever buying it, not even for $10. They messed it up more than Patton!

Patton doesn't look massively bad, like they seemed to do with Gladiator. There's some issue with DNR in the picture, yes, though large aspects of the picture aren't missing, like the fireballs and arrows in Gladiator.

Good to know Braveheart looks amazing, so that'll go on the must-buy list.

I was going to grab Gladiator and Braveheart with that "Get $10 off when you pick up both" deal at BB, but I think I'll pay full price for Braveheart and also grab Shaun of the Dead instead.

//edit: Adventureland blew so hard that I fell asleep. That hasn't happened in a while.

The problem with Patton isn't that it looked bad, is that it could have looked AMAZING. Like better than most modern movies. It was shot using 70mm film so their could have and should have been so much fine detail that could have been stored with the higher quality fim, but they DNR'ed that out. However, for a 40 year old movie, I can somewhat accept it because it doesn't look terrible, and is still a significant upgrade over the DVD. Gladiator on the other hand looks god awful and is barely an upgrade.

Really guys? Patton doesn't look bad but Gladiator is some type of atrocity?

I would much rather have small things like fireballs and arrows partially missing due to poor DNR scrub (which I probably wouldn't even notice in motion) than the horrible, shitty treatment Patton recieved.

I mean, come on, seriously?

I bought Shaun, and it looks great.

I also rented Obsessed for my gf. Terrible movie, but a great transfer.

Ahhh......Gladiator received worse treatment than Patton. They were both DNR'd poorly and too much, but with patton there aren't details of the picture missing. And at least with Patton it still is a substantial upgrade from the DVD.

. . and Patton was a $9 pick-up at Fry's for me, which is not the price mark for Gladiator.

BTW, the free BBy steelbook for SW&tSD is really cool.

Has anybody seen the Disney/BBC documentary "Earth"? ( Or, better yet, have a blu-ray review of it? )

I'm a big nature documentary junkie, yet I was at college with this baby slipped into theaters. Any opinions? I've heard that it's a lot like Planet Earth.

I saw the Blu-ray last week. Its pretty meh. It's all Planet Earth footage cut to 90 minutes. Barely any features. I'd say stick to Planet Earth instead.
