Wow. Great Trailer. Thanks for the review. I will check this one out. I like John Goodman so I will enjoy his performance in this movie as well.

I did a blind buy on this one and boy really liked it. The Atmos track was really good and dynamic. The film keeps you guessing what is really happening and who is really good or bad.

I'm always so torn about spending time watching movies that could be great...but have the possibility of coming up short for the last third.

Know what I mean?

Time is so valuable...hate to feel cheated! ;-)
I wouldn't worry TOOOO much. It's just a little disappointing. It's not like I threw my hands up in the and air and just walked out at the end.

Went to Best Buy in hopes of scoring a 4K version of this but to no avail. How are we (me) going to transition our libraries if they don't release the content? Anyway, rented the regular Bluray version and watching it tonight.

yeah, at the moment the ONLY 4K releases Paramount has released are the two Star Trek films... it was their "toes in the water" moment.

Of subject kinda but in speaking about 4k. Do you think eventually there will be more Atmos content available for UHD and less and less for bluray?

If I were a betting man I'd say yes. Right now it seems hit and miss. Maybe studio specific?
I agree. Makes me think twice on keeping modern receivers considering I won't be getting 4k tv soon. I might just hold on to the 805 longer. That Sc 95 is nice though. Head scratching lol.
Moderators please move this to appropriate thread if needed.

Its a pattern I've been seeing more and more. So I would hesitantly say yes

Just finished it and I thought it was great! I had no problem whatsoever with the ending. What was it that you didn't like about it Mike? I guess you really can't answer without spoiling it for others.

It does seem like it is headed in that direction. Reports are that if you buy a UHD combo pack that also contains a blu ray disc, the UHD disc will have Atmos but the blu ray disc will not. Just another way to upsell UHD I suppose.

I went to see this opening night and loved it. I will admit that the ending felt a bit out of place in relation to the rest of the movie but it did not diminish my enjoyment of it, glad to see I am not the only one.

it was just that it felt so different and completely took me out of the movie compared to the first two acts....

10 Cloverfield Lane - You'll be glad to experience it, because when I did, the desire to know as I went along for the ride just kept expanding.

* Good review Mike.

By the way, there are few holes and few scenes where the attention to details is obviously lacking, but @ the end of the tunnel it's the journey...
And on Blu it's hard to fault. The faults are more within. The audio is the better element, the picture is not up to it in the darker scenes and with the mickey mouse special effects.

** Hi Asere. :)
