Day one purchase for sure. I didn't get to see it at the movies, and I was surprised the film was panned during the awards season.
Stop the Replacing of original Studio Opening / Closing logos! These are becoming endangered and should be kept intact. They are part of film history.

It's a beautiful film, in my opinion, and one of the year's best, but I'm not surprised it's proven divisive. It's very 'art-house' in its approach and pacing.

Anyone who enjoyed Sofia's past films (especially Lost in Translation) should definitely see it.

Definitely in my top 3 from 2010. I liked it even better the second time I saw it in theatres.

I got the UK BD of this which looks to be identical to the US and Australian disc. The movie itself seems to be a big hit or miss toward audiences. And I'm shocked how low this movie grossed in theaters. Just seemed to be dumped in a few places and thats it....

I'm glad to hear the A/V presentation is faithful. (The 3.5 audio score seems a bit unfair, to be honest. Just because it's not a Revenge of the Fallen-style audio extravaganza...)

Can't wait to buy the Blu. One of my favorite recent films.

Anyone found a cheaper in store price than Amazon for Somewhere?

Finally saw Sofia Coppola's Somewhere (2010). It was a film that kept my interest & reminded me somewhat of Lost in Translation, i.e. both films focused on ficticious, wealthy celebrities (Bill Murray in LIT, and Steven Dorrff in Somewhere); LOT focused on Murray being a fish out of water in Japan, making a commercial; Somewhere had a short sequence where Dorff & his daughter were in Italy so that Dorff could accept an award?! And, in both films, the main actors seemed to be playing a version of themselves in the films.

IMHO what made Somewhere somewhat more interesting was the relationship the main character had with his daughter;
[Show spoiler]the scene at the end when she was crying because she wasn't sure her mother was coming back was quite poignant.


I got the impression that
[Show spoiler]the very end scene when the Dorff character left his car on the side of the road to mean that he was going to spend more time with his daughter (and possibly retire from acting?!); it seemed like he was walking in the direction of the camp, to go get her - however, this may have been me giving the character too much credit....also not sure why leaving his car was a good idea - though it was probably symbolic that he was leaving his past life behind - at least that's my interpretation...


I will say I enjoyed Somewhere more than LIT.

The SC films - in order of my preference:

1) Marie Antoinette (2006) - superb story, visuals, music, and costumes - this is a film that needs to be on Blu, pronto!

2) The Virgin Suicides (2000) - very sad & poignant film

3) The Bling Ring (2013) - liked the story & editing; well-done.

4) Somewhere (2010)

5) Lost in Translation (2003) - IMHO this was overrated & pretentious.

Speaking of The Virgin Suicides, I hope that will be coming out soon on blu-ray.
