Re: X-Men: First Class - Blu-Ray Review

I also just watched this movie, definitely worth the buy! Just love the throw-back they did with it, the best cameo of the year to go with it too. Great review Dale!

Thor is worth it, you are in for a treat. TRON still tops in my book, though.

I want to check out Tron next as well. I heard some mixed things about that one though. Regardless, I am itching to watch this one again. Maybe tonight.

Re: X-Men: First Class - Blu-Ray Review

Very good story and acting, probably one of the best I've seen for a comic-book movie. You guys are getting good at this review thing: I find myself looking to see what you've reviewed before I go to the store!

Re: X-Men: First Class - Blu-Ray Review

Watched last night. Overall the PQ and AQ were top notch and the movie itself was very good. However, there were a handful of scenes that I thought were a little blurry. One that comes to mind was the near the beginning when young Magneto was being forced to move the coin (if you've seen it you know what I'm talking about...). The side shots of him were a little blurry, so much so that I thought my PJ was out of focus until the next (crystal clear) shot. Did anyone else notice that? I never saw this movie in the theaters so not sure if this was from the source.

Regards,
sga2

I absolutely saw the same thing in the exact same thing. That makes two of us, perhaps it is the source material.
