Re: What movie did you watch last night?

I watched "Pat Metheny: The Orchestrion Project" in 3D on bluray. This performance was done for the camera and there is no live audience so it is not really a concert but it is approached as if it was one. I will say I am more of a casual Metheney fan but the techie in me was drawn to the orchestrion part of this. They did a great job of showing all of the different instruments he was controlling around the room and the 3D aspect really helped put you in that room. I listened to it in Dolby true HD with 5.1 speakers but the soundtrack is 7.1

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

I've been waiting for one of my favourite movies, 'Gettysburg', to be remastered onto Blu Ray as the last time I saw it was on my VHS Player years ago. I finally found one.

This '150th Commemorative Of The Civil War' version comes with a second disc of 'Special Features' plus a wonderful 48 page book that chronicles the history of the battle and the making of the film. Over 5000 Civil War Reenactors were involved so it is a film on a grand scale with thankfully little or no CGI that I could see.

It is over 4 hours long - on 1 disc yet - and I'm about 3 hours into it so far. The remastering of this 1993 epic is generally visually excellent and the sound track is awesome when contrasted to what I remember from the VHS version. Cannons and muskets hit with authority and the musical score is superb.

Those who are used to the constant fast pace of the present genre of action flics, might find this one to be slow at times; however, Civil War buffs like me will be thoroughly engaged by this grand film. This fine Blu Ray is a keeper, at least for me...

"The Barefoot Contessa"

A different sort of soapbox ending.

We watched Last Vegas, it was pretty good. The best part is after trying out our old sub I got the same sound problems as before so I tried a new cable and all is well with our system.

Just saw Raiders of the Lost Ark. A great classic! I bought the Adventures of Indiana Jones on bluray that contains all of the films. Looking forward to seeing them all again soon.

I saw haft of the movie because I got tired of all the drugs and cheesy lines.
It seems those are the only kinds of movies Franco and Rogen know how to do these days.

Okay thanks, Asere. I'm glad to know it wasn't just us who thought the movie was a total waste of time.
