Re: What movie did you watch last night?

My wife and I watched Iron Man 3 in the theatre yesterday. One of the trailers was for the new Hunger Games which looks pretty good. So we came home and watched hunger games for the first time. Kathy hated the kids killing kids theme and cried about Pru but overall we enjoyed the movie. Donald Sutherland is a long way from MASH but right up there with body snatchers. I've enjoyed Wes Bently since American Beauty (yes even in ghost rider) and we finished the night with iced tea and the first halo!

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

I received my "Mastered for 4k" version of Battle: Los Angeles. I know the movie has its weaknesses, and I'm biased with it featuring the Corps, but I think it was/is at least as good as any other number of action flicks, but with a lot of great bass thrown in. I can't say I noticed any difference in regards to picture (or even audio) quality versus the previous version, but I only have a plasma and sit about 10 feet from it. The audio may have been a bit punchier, but most likely that is just placebo. Overall, a very good transfer.

Considering the price was the same as the regular BR, and it eliminates all the (annoying to me) special features/promos/commercials, the "Mastered in 4K" versions are a lot of fun to add to the collection if you are just after the film itself. I don;t see a reason to replace any BR's you may already have with these though.

Not feeling well so I laid down and watched two - Fellowship of the Ring and War of the Worlds. It was actually the first time I have seen WOTW - that is some serious LFE!

Where Eagles Dare
My Man Godfrey
River Of No Return
