Antichrist (Blu-Ray) - Ok, now this has split the audience right down the middle but I am definitely and firmly placed on the positive side. This was awesome, I loved it. It started off absolutely stunningly and beautifully shot and it didn't get any worse throughout the film. The cinematography was sublime, every shot was like a postcard.... in HD. I could not stop gasping at how beautiful everything looked, it seemed to be just one long dream sequence to me. As I'm sure you have heard some scenes are rather brutal but I feel they were necessary to portray the collapse in the human mind. The acting was nigh on perfect, when Charlotte Gainsbourg cried it completely sank my heart, the emotion that was poured into that performance was breathtaking. You could feel everything she was feeling with the pain and turmoil her character was going through.
Okay I won't carry on and bore you but I really, really loved this. A must own on Blu-Ray me thinks (Thanks Kelly for picking this up for me :D )

I thought it was great too. I genuinely loved the weirdo talking fox.

This was an inventively designed, harrowing and occasionally darkly amusing exploration of guilt, bereavement and the age old 'battle of the sexes'.

Gainsbourg was fearless and outstanding, I thought.


Just watched District 9 on blu. What an exciting, refreshing action film: great concept and thrilling execution, with razor sharp wit. Liked the idea that the main protagonist was a bit of a wally and a shit, despite clearly being the best human of the lot. Very impressed.

Watched District 13:Ultimatum last night.Unfortunately not a patch on the original as far as I was concerned.While there were a few good action sequences in the movie,I felt that the original moved at a faster pace and had more clearly defined vilians in the form of Taha and his right hand man K-2.This one had a corrupt government official and a special forces comrade of Damien as the protaginists and didn't pose much of a threat to our heroes.It's a shame that they didn't bring Leito's sister,Lola back for Ultimatum.

I watched District 13 and loved it but I'm yet to get this new one. I think I'll have to get it just to complete the collection but good to see an honest review. It's got a nice cover and I'm a sucker for great packaging too.

got my Suspiria in the post today.

picture quality is great but its the sound for me that stood out. Amazing stuff

I was going on about the pq to my wife and she commented how the colours were blinding her retinas like an episode of CSI Miami :laugh:
