Re: Zero Dark Thirty - Blu-ray Review

Thanks for the review, Mike!

I enjoyed Zero Dark Thirty, but didn't find it nearly as thrilling as some users apparently did. The audio and video were good, but I agree with you that the first part of the movie dragged on a bit. This one has been added to my personal collection, but I really wouldn't be all that upset by not owning it. My personal rating for it was a 7.5, but I can understand how some viewers might rate it higher. Thanks again for the review...

Great acting....character development, plot, Etc. J. Gandolfinini played a good Panetta, too!

What a wonderful story and a happy ending!


I would have written less but I didn't have the time.

Re: Zero Dark Thirty - Blu-ray Review

Thanks for the review, I finally got to watch this over the weekend and I really enjoyed it despite it being rather different than what I was expecting. The trailers make it out to be more of an action movie (and I know several people that were very disappointed because of that)

The movie was a little on the long side but I don't think I would take anything out. The buildup to the ending was really well done.

Re: Zero Dark Thirty - Blu-ray Review

Nice review, Mike. I saw this in the theaters and am curious to give it a whirl at home --- my theater experience was marred by awful PQ, so I'm curious to see the difference in PQ.

I read the book - No Easy Day - which the movie follows in many ways. In fact, if any or you are interested in more detail (and many interesting details about the raid itself) you should pick-up the book. I've read quite a few SEaL books in recent years --- NED is average. The real draw are the mission details.

Zero D 30, I thought, was a sold flick. I must say, though... it lost me in some chuckles when Tony Soparano enters the picture.

Re: Zero Dark Thirty - Blu-ray Review

I decided to watch Zero Dark Thirty again last night and while it was good the first time, I definitely enjoyed it more the second time around!

A friend of mine that I had watched it with said the same thing. Of course I just attributed this to my home theater setup
