Re: What movie did you watch last night?

I watched Catching Fire for the second time, this time in a Dolby Atmos theater. Very impressive discrete placement of sounds throughout the theater. Also, by far the best bass that I've heard in a commercial theater. It went deeeep and shook the floor and my chair at times but wasn't overbearing. The high end was still a little bit hot though -- don't know why theaters have to have piercing highs. Anyway, I watched this a second time only to hear an Atmos mix and I'm glad I did.

Last night I saw Old Boy. I enjoyed the original Korean version when I saw it many years ago despite how disturbing it was. With this remake I think they changed the ending a bit because it felt different but I can't really put my finger on it, I need to watch the older version (at least the end) to remember what the difference was and to see which is better.

Be warned, this is a disturbing movie with lots of gory violence so if you're a fan of that stuff you'll enjoy it, otherwise steer clear. When it's over you'll wonder what you just watched and you may not even know if it was a waste of time or not. At the very least it's unique and will keep you guessing until the end (unless you've seen the original).

My son suggested this one to me and after reading your post I think I might give it a look.

Cool, I'm glad you enjoyed it - it sure isn't for everyone! I wish I could tell you which version I thought was better but it's been way too long since I've seen the Korean one, when you see the new one please let us know what you think!

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

Hi Guys

A bit off topic, but I figured you movie buffs would be the best source.

I'm desperately looking for a Murder of Crows (Tom Beringer, Cuba Gooding Jr) in widescreen format. I've now bought this movie 6 times where it was advertised as widescreen and/or millenium edition and every single time I've got the pan and scan full screen (4:3 format). Does anyone own it> if so could you give me ISBN/UPC, so I can verify with any sellers. Don;t supposed anyone wants to sell a used version in good condition: at this point I'm figuring that's the only way I'm going to get the WS version.

thanks

mark

thanks, but don't trust it. Every single copy I've bought has said it's been millenium or widescreen on their web site and they've shipped wrong version (B&N, DeepDiscounts, Amazon, eBay,etc.) I've got an request into family video to physically inspect case before I order. They probably won't do it. Unfortunately, it's a real old movie so going to store (shock, horror) probably won't help
