Avatar on Blu Ray

I know some people would say “why didn’t you wait until the special edition comes out in November”.  My honest answer is I don’t care about all the special features.  If you are like me a all the behind the scene and making of features don’t matter to you.  I say go out and buy this right now.  I am sure you saw it in IMAX 3D or your local movie theatre.  I had the pleasure of seeing it in IMAX 3D.  I can say it was an amazing experience to watch it on a huge screen.  You really feel the emotion of the film.  The one thing that bothered me was the blurring and the details was as sharp as I was hoping.  The colors weren’t as bright and vivid.  If you noticed anything similar to what I experienced that is all washed away on the Blu- Ray.  I am not a avid videophile but I do enjoy watching hi def.  This is one of the best transfers I have ever seen on a Blu-Ray.  The colors are sharp and bright and the detail is astounding.  After watching on my tv I noticed a lot more details that I didn’t see at the IMAX.  I have a Playstation 3 hooked up to a Samsung PN50B650 plasma.  I have a good balanced calibration that works good for my satellite and PS3.  My investment of $20 was worth every penny.  I now own a great movie that makes owning Blu Ray worth every penny.

Crank 4/19/10 on Blu Ray

I found an incredible deal while shopping at Wal Mart.  They had Crank on Blu Ray for $8.00.  What a great deal considering Amazon has it for $13.49.  This is a rewatch for me but the first time in Hi Def.  What word can describe a great movie that is 1080p resolution.  Most people have seen this movie in standard def.  If you have a blu ray I recommend getting to your closest Wal Mart and tracking down this gem of a movie.  I am not a videophile but I do love my movie in hi def and this is one of the best ones that I have seen.  So pick your self up off the couch and find this deal at $8.00 you can’t go wrong.

Bad Lieutenant 4/17/10

This is one movie that I really wanted to love. I like it but it just couldn’t get into the movie. Nichols Cage played a great role. He made the movie watchable. Val Kilmer played a small role and not a great one at that. To me the movie kind of dragged on a little. It seemed much longer than what it was. Good movie and is worth a look.

Sherlock Holmes 4/17/10

This is one of Guy Ritchies better movies. It is on par with Lock,Stock and Snatch. Oustanding cast makes this a great movie. Robert Downey and Jude Law have that perfect chemistry. Mark Strong plays that perfect bad guy. I loved his character Archie in RockNRolla and liked him here. I can’t wait until the sequel. Watch and enjoy.

Ninja Assassin 4/16/10

The opening scene really sets the tone for the movie. If blood and gore is your thing watch. Kill Bill comes to mine with the fighting and blood. It really follows all the legends that follow the ninja. If you want to watch a great fighting and gory movie spend the time to enjoy this gem.

The Blind Side

It was very much what I expected. It played out very well and great story. Sandy B played the Oscar winning performance and deserved it very much. The casting fit perfectly for the movie. It is one of the best feel good movies I have seen. Watch and you will enjoy.

Blue Crush 4/13/10

Not much to say other than movie with hot women in bikini’s. Cheesy love story poor girl meets rich boy. Poor girl thinks rich boy is just treating her like a notch in the belt. Also semi chick flick with the women empowerment. Kate Bosworth is smoking hot in her skimpy shorts and bikini’s.
