I thought it was supposed to be something great, because of the ratings. Thanks for the warning on that one.

I thought Mud was very good. It seems to have more positive reviews than negative and is definitely worth a rent.

3 EV Sentry 500 monitors across the front, 4 Mission 762i's Surrounds, SVS PB13U sub, Panasonic BDT220, Harmony 1100, Nintendo WiiU
Panasonic PT-AE8000 on a 120" 2,35:1 fixed screen

Living room system:
Sherwood/Newcastle R972, Mission 765's, SVS SBS02's, A/D/S MS3u sub, Yamaha YDG2030EQ

That's the trap I fell into. If you're bored (can't sleep) and looking for a rental it's Ok, but I bought it, so pretty miffed. Everyone raved about the movie and McConaughey's acting. His acting was good, but I think he was just as good in A Time to Kill and that was a MUCH better movie (with an all round much better cast).

It's always a catch-22 with new movies "preview via rental before buying":
  1. Wait forever for the disc to be available on Netflix 9with all the 28-day delays they have from studios + availability issues, but it is almost free, given the amount of content I watch on netflix)
  2. Stream from AppleTV (Usually 5.99 for HD, so 25-50% cost to buy)
  3. Chance it and buy it

Good thing about 1 and 2, is by the time I'll want to watch again, price will be close to $10 (or lower)

I thought the movie was a buy and at the very least a rent. Not everyone is going to agree with that and that's ok. I have also been burned when blind buying but for the most part if 75 percent of both users and critics like a film I usually do as well. Coriolanus comes to mind as being one of the exceptions to that.
