^You could try Spirited Away (available only on DVD so far). It has an Alice in Wonderland type story about a young girl who journeys into this magical place and must undergo many adventures if she has to free her parents from the curse of becoming pigs. This film won the Oscar for best animated feature film and several other awards.

Special Edition UK DVD is available at WOWHD for 9.49 (free shipping). Check out the trailer for the English dub version of the film here (DVD will include both original Japanese language and English dub tracks):

Both are just forgettable films. That Bourne movie had good acting, but was incomplete film with poor story and was just plain boring. Total Recall was entertaining but still overall forgettable. These two films are most likely in not in anyone's top Hollywood movies of 2012.

I love Tangled too - it's very underrated for a new Disney film. If you like tangled, you may prefer My Neighbor Totoro or Kiki's Delivery Service first. Spirited Away is great and everybody loves this one, but it feels the longest to me. I would just rent a whole bunch - dont watch just one!

I hav'nt liked other recent Disney or Disney/Pixar Movies as much as Tangled , Cars 2 Was plain average and the very recent Brave was barely a one-time-watch kind of movie , Tangled even had one of the best musical scores in recent times and with 90% Rating at rotten tomatoes and 7.8/10 at IMDB i dont think it is underrated , i however would give it 8.8/10

I still havn't been able to figure out from where to start ,will be going to the rental library in a day or two.

Ohh.....no no no , you are getting it wrong , i Loved it and its a good film are two different things , it was entertaining , it was enjoyable, it was just not memorable or something noteworthy so it wont be in my top movies list either
I liked a movie student of the year which i enjoyed a lot , but if someone asks me top hindi movies of 2012 i certainly wont name that in that list , because i know and i agree it is not a very good film and maybe i wont like it the second time even if i watch it , its just i loved the experience for the first time , i am not trying to fit in or anything , ill never try that!
If someone asks top 5 or top 10 English movies total recall wont be there in that list there are many more deserving films but if top 20 are asked then it certainly will be there , i did loved/enjoyed it. End of story

Default Film fest at home

Saw a number of films during the festive break with friends and family

Sunshine - One of my fav Sci-fi movie.
Dabaang - Yeah, different from other masala ones, but too much Salman. Relatively better script, dialogues and presentation makes a good watch. The anti-hero part could have been better in the story.
Shrek (1-3) and the Musical at Theatre Royal Drury Lane- Good fun with kids around. Shrek 3 was meh. Theatre was fun.
Lion King 2 - Not bad, but didn't meet expectations
Shanghai - My top Hindi movie this year and loved it more this time on Blu
Barfi - Well directed and acted, could have been bit shorter. One of the better made films this year
Mission Impossible 3 - Rabbit's foot.
Moulin Rouge - The greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return
The Living Daylights - Why?
Kahaani - Another good movie made this year.
The Ghost - A good Polanski film that works on you on multiple viewing. Not one of his best, but has his signature crafty trademark.
Cube - Loved it when I saw it first time several years back and now on Blu Ray, the movie looks fantastic.
Batman Begins - Chris Nolan changed the way Superhero movies are made and I like his way of telling a story.

Minecraft - The Story of Mojang

A look at the Swedish developers of the massively popular game Minecraft (which I have never played). The focus is on Markus 'Notch' Persson who made the first iterations of Minecraft and founded the development studio. He comes across as a really cheerful and approachable guy who is genuinely pleased at the scale of appreciation his game has got, but at the same time wants to keep his future efforts on a manageable scale. The film covers the usual game conventions and interviews with game development and journalism personalities including Peter Molyneux (Populous) and Tim Schafer (Psychonauts). There is also a section devoted to how Minecraft is used as a teaching/bonding tool in schools. It's nice but what could have been a lovely 70 min docu is stretched to a flabby 100+ min feature which I had to finish in 2 sittings. Specifically too much time is devoted to hearing the same people and very similar scenarios at game conventions.

The makers of the Kickstarter-funded film have themselves uploaded a torrent of it with a request that if you like the film to please buy it either digitally or on DVD: Torrent Link




Starship Troopers: Invasion

The first ST movie by the awesome Paul Verhoeven was an amazing fun experience with its satiric pro-military stance and balls-to-the-wall actions sequences and gore effects. I didn't bother catching the two live-action sequels, but had heard good word about this new animated sequel by Shinji Aramaki (Appleseed). Yeah, it's pretty decent as timepass, though nowhere near the brilliance of the first film. There's a good amount of gory action and wile the story and acting aren't going to touch you any they aren't noticeably bad either. The quality of the graphics is not as good as I remember something like the Spirits Within movie (the motion of the characters seems less than life-like, hair is awfully simplistic, and the depiction of boobies is only a little better than in Duke Nukem Forever), but yea it has a lot more slam-bang moments and is more entertaining as a popcorn watch.

Watched The Bourne Legacy





Movie : 4 out of 5

I actually enjoyed this a lot and the first hour was really interesting.
Minor spoilers for those who haven't watched the movie yet.
The movie shows the domino effect caused by Jason Bourne's activities. I always suspected that there were many more Black Ops Divisions apart from Treadstone and Blackbriar and I'm glad this movie went into that. We are introduced to two more operations in this movie -Outcome (agents on a regimen of drugs/gene splicing to enhance mental and physical capabilities) and LARX (a cross between Treadstone and Outcome programs. In other words, the perfect killing machine.).
Introducing Jeremy Renner as an Outcome agent on pills trying to survive due to Bourne sending the CIA into panic mode is the perfect way to spin off off the original Bourne Trilogy. I don't really see any other way they could have done that. The first part of the film focuses on the Agency's vain attempts on damage control but the most gripping aspect of this movie is learning about the process of the Outcome program in detail.
I see this movie as the first part of a new set of Aaron Cross movies. The way this movie ended and the way Ultimatum ended, the writers can now go in any direction they want and are free to tie the two stories together however they see fit now that Legacy has set the table. Legacy was more or less like Identity. We learn a bit about the protagonist and a history between Edward Norton and Renner is hinted at, the main conflict is resolved by the end and is kinda open ended just like the first one.
The action is great in this movie and is present when essential to the story just like the first Bourne movie. Renner's hand-to-hand close quarter combat is a thrill to watch and the drone attack in the beginning is one of the best action sequences in the Bourne series. I was worried about the 2 and a half hour runtime as I don't usually like long movies but time seemed to fly by when I was watching this movie.

I would love it if we start getting Cross and Bourne movies with the plots intersecting as the writers seem fit, kinda like The Avengers. This franchise still has a lot of potential and doesn't need to be confined to one character and I'm glad to say that Legacy proved that.


Video - 5/5
Excellent transfer like most BDs these days with great detail and no compression artifacts. The color grading in this film is great and follows the same tone of the previous films. Great framing and camera work too though I missed Greengrass's shaky cam a bit.

Audio - 5/5
This is demo material in almost every aspect! One of the best sounding BDs of 2012!! The atmospherics in this movie (wind in the icy mountains, chatter in a control room, etc) is exemplary and this is how atmospherics in every movie should be handled. I hate it when when most movies open up the soundstage only for action sequences. Dialogue is very clear as well. Gunshots ring and echo throughout the soundstage giving a very good idea of the size of the room/environment due to the reverberation from the other speakers as well. This is really great and I really appreciate the effort that went into it as sounds are usually confined to one speaker (the place from where the sound originates). Bass is tight and comes into play when required. The audio on this disc put a smile on my face from beginning to end. Like the other Bourne movies, this closes with Moby's 'Extreme Ways' and it sounds metter than ever in DTS-HD MA 7.1 . It's not a stereo track and some of the background vocals are engineered into the side and rear speakers instead of being confined to just the front.


Overall - 4.5/5
Great pacing, gripping plot, clever and well written action set pieces, demo quality BD and a very nice set of extras. This has given way to a new age of 'Bourne' movies . One of the most underrated movies of the year.

Now that I've watched the movie, I'm interested in knowing why most of you didn't like it.

I'd first seen this movie a really long time ago on the Star Movies channel, albeit in a highly chopped manner, and found it decent entertainment. Some of you Bollywood fans may want to try this out because really, a couple of mostly disposable outre moments aside, this is almost like an ode to the Bollywood formula from David Lynch. Boy and girl are in love, girl's mom disapproves and tries to get boy killed, boy and girl run away, girl's mom sends people to hunt them down, all sound familiar? There's action, drama and even songs too. The acting is stylized and hysterical, especially old-timer Diane Ladd as the mother (incidentally she is the real life mother of the girl - Laura Dern). The movie is breezy and unlike some of Lynch's other films doesn't aim to tax you with surreal conundrums, just sit back for the ride.

I have Universal's UK BD of the film. The image quality is decent, though not hugely impressive. The main issue is that it seems to have been struck from a dated master, possibly prepared in the heydays of DVD. While there are no overt noise reduction or other manipulation issues, clarity and fine detail never really pop, even considering the film's age and budget. I set the film on stereo (LPCM 2.0), which is I believe (but not sure) the format of its theatrical release, and it was a decent experience, especially with the songs and the background score.

Take a peek here for Nicholas Cage's hilarious dancing and actually not too shabby singing:

For me... (even some other people) can't afford the time to watch blu-ray.
Actually, my last blu-ray movie is 'English Vinglish'.
That was good. One of my best Hindi film in 2012.
Sorry...

Since last one month, I had been watching Breaking Bad on Bluray till last Tuesday. (Nothing else than that)
No doubt, it's a great show and I have watched all the seasons (1 to 4 available on Bluray so far)...The final season is running currently with 8 more episodes left, to be premièred in next few months.

Breaking Bad is filmed in a small town Albuquerque of New Mexico-US... and the filming in the outskirts of town looks great on Bluray...all the desert scenes are picturesque ... The title soundtrack is quite unique with LFE booster kinda sound. and you will love few original Spanish songs featured in few episodes...

If you wanna watch a great TV show (probably the best drama in currently running shows)...go and buy Breaking Bad Bluray.

I could not hold myself and I had to take help of internet to watch 8 episodes of Season-5; but I have already pre-ordered the season-5 of Breaking Bad.

Yesterday, I started watching Mad Men season 1 on Bluray... ohh Man... What a beautiful presentation of Manhattan-Newyork during 1960's era ... Picture quality justifies every single pixel of your HDTV. Mad Men on Bluray is absolute Beauty... Will update more as I move forward in the show...

I dont know about others but i only purchase BDs of the best movies released during the year , i purchased just ZNMD And Rockstar last year. It does feel good if they have a good transfer as in case of barfi and znmd. I dont like to waste money buying every other movie or Tv series and recently i've lost more than 80-100 Blu-Rays , my old ps1 console and i dont know 100 or so Autocar magazines ,all of which were in one carton when we moved from Delhi to Gurgaon , we recently opened all the unopened cartons and found this one missing , searched every corner of the house and could'nt find it LEFT WITH PRACTICALLY NOTHING , just a few BDs which i got packed with the blu ray player reached. Suddenly realised the value of money , and the madness i was in buying every other BD , have made a list of movies i will be purchasing again (15-20), the best movies with great BDs and repeat value , and have decided to purchase just the most important of movies from now on!

Just completed watching:



This was a pretty decent watch, i was not expecting this as i read alot of negative reviews about the movies. I do agree with some of the points in the reviews though. The movie itself didnt do much for me, This is very much a template for Saif Ali Khan movies. He is so deeply typecast in that 'Kal Ho Naa Ho' sort of roles, i wonder if he can dig himself out. Like Love Aaj Kal, this movie has him portraying a very similar character. The roles might have different names but they are definitely extensions of the same character. Deepika was really good though, she has the verve to play such roles. There are a couple of scenes where she actually steals the film from Saif. Newcomer Diana Penty was just decent. The plot was sort of seen-that-before. I did enjoy the cinematography though. The shots in Cape Town (South Africa) were so picturesque, i was at all those spots in real life, and they portrayed just like it is in the movie.

PQ was okayish to me, the PQ was really dark, i had to adjust some of the settings to get the PQ looking a bit normal.

AQ was great, Good action on the surrounds, and as usual with Eros, i had to lower the volume on the sub-woofers. It could have pounded a hole in my head in the club scenes. Pritams music was decent enough, some enjoyable numbers.

Movie: 3 / 5
PQ: 3 / 5
AQ: 4 / 5

OK , Dont kill me for this but i finished watching Jab Tak Hai Jaan for second time (this time on a BLU-RAY borrowed from a friend)

Well , This movie had huge potential and was let down by rotten script by Aditya Chopra , however magical touches of SR Chopra are present in various parts of movie ,which make this watchable/tolerable to me atleast , this time i enjoyed AR Rahman's musical score even more but it does not compare to any yash chopra or AR Rahman's best , Background score however is a different story and is brilliant

Movie - 3.0/5 (Disappointing ,not upto the mark but watchable,and some scenes really do make up for the otherwise messy script)

Picture Quality - 4.75/5 (one of the best PQ in a Indian Blu Ray and easily the best of 2012, Movie has Filmic Look , often LAID-BACK colours (represent the theatrical presentation) , SOLID Transfer by YRF Here) (Excellent cinematography by Anil Mehta)

Audio Quality - 4.75/5 (Excellent Audio Quality ,Not Too Loud ,LFE is not overpowering, a very well balanced mix,typical indian mix by Yash Raj Studios)(The 96K Upsampled Dolby True HD Track Does sound significantly different and is marginally better than the other track) (with typical Indian mix i mean excellent use of surrounds,discrete effects in music,being powerfull and punchy are also in their forte)

Extras - (I really didn't play The Extras DVD which was provided,neither do i care a bit about it)

Overall 3.5/5 (RECOMENDED)

Actually, my last blu-ray movie is 'English Vinglish'.
That was good. One of my best Hindi film in 2012.
Sorry...
I think that's the case with almost everybody here. I get to watch a BD every weekend. But what I'm saying is that this thread is more like a bulletin board rather than a forum. People rarely comment on other people's reviews.
