Iron Man Blu Ray

Well I can finally say that I have seen the first Iron Man.  I am not a huge fan of comic book character movies.  I just can’t believe that I waited this long to see Iron Man.  It was one of the best comic book movies that I have ever seen.  The Blu Ray is stunning the story is great and Robert Downey Jr. nails the character.  I always remember hearing he was going to be Iron Man and I thought not a great pick oh how I was wrong.  He is just such an amazing actor and played the role perfectly.  As I know most of you have seen the movie already so I am not going to review.  Other than say if you haven’t seen it by chance run out to your closest movie rental store and watch.  Truly it is worth owning and having in your collection.

The Final Destination Blu Ray

This movie was terrible.  I liked the Final Destination series and enjoyed the creative way they kill people.  I never ran out to the movies as soon as they came out usually waited to see at my pace.  This one really drops the ball in the series.  It runs the idea as all the other ones.  This one has terrible special effects and the 3D imagagry is horrible.  I could do better job with my iPhone.  Don’t waste your time or money on this movie.  I was really hoping for a big grand finale to the series and was let down big time.

2012 Blu Ray

What to say other than another end of the world movie.  If you liked ID4, and the Day After Tomorrow you will enjoy. It was entertaining and that is about all.  This one goes one step past all the other end of the world movies.  It is worth a watch.

The Hurt Locker on Blu Ray.

Wow what can I say I loved this movie.  What a great war movie not about the war per se.  It’s about a group of expert bomb disposal unit.  They seek out leads that they get from other troops about possible IED.  They are to seek out and dispose of the them safely.  It really shows the raw side of war and what happens to the psyche of a soldier in the stress they are under.  If you haven’t seen the movie rent it or buy. Great scenes good dialogue and all around great movie.

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.
