Re: What movie did you watch last night?

Watched War of the Worlds. I don't recall the picture being so grainy????
It was the 2013 Steel Book version. Thought the audio was great, picture quality was disturbingly lousy!

I've always thought the picture in this one was lacking. The audio more than makes up for it though.

Hey Mike, let me know the quality of the UK version. I bought the Blu-ray from Walmart 5 buck bin along with Out for Justice. Quality was excellent. Some of these have Dolby True HD my copy has DTS HDMA.

the blu-ray of Hard Target???? Hard Target isn't OUT in the u.s. yet. that's the whole contention that's being fumed about. the U.K. and Australia got it but no domestic release.

Yeah I know. I was referring to the other movie, Out for Justice at Walmart, Hard Target arrived Friday it's the 100 minute cut. That's why I was asking when you get yours if it is in Dolby or DTS. There is supposed to be 120 minute cut with some ridiculous amount of violence John Woo style.

ah that makes more sense. I was scratching my head at first. yeah the 100 minute cut. the U.K. edition has already been reviewed on a couple other forums and it's confirmed DTS-HD MA 5.1


the 120 minute cut you mention is a workprint version that is ONLY available as a beat up workprint. unfortunately that NC-17 workprint will not see the light of day due to it's very very poor condition.

Some folks around the web are also talking about Sudden Death, I think I might have my nephew pick that one up for me as well, he is stationed in one of the forward Army bases there. That is in Australia. Keeping an open eye on the Chinese no doubt.
