5.0 out of 5 stars Is It Safe?, Dec 31 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The 70's was the best decade for American cinema by far imo. MM is one of my favorite thrillers from that era featuring a solid performance by Hoffman and the late great Olivier as the sadistic war criminal. The Warner Bros transfer won't blow you away by any means but it's decent enough and makes a nice addition to your collection if you like the film as much as I do. Recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars Great projector for blu-ray movies on a big screen, Dec 31 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I've been using my Pro8200 for about 2 months now and I love it! I have it projected onto a 92" pull up screen and the image is great especially at night in a dark room. You will have to do some calibrating out of the box as the colors are off but you can google suggested settings. I also have it connected to my new Oppo 103 player via HDMI and my 1.3 Denon reciever. Since I'm not able to mount mine I placed it on the coffe table on top of a phone book to give me the right size image. I suggest keeping it one eco mode at all times to maximize your bulb output and minimal noise. I had a 61" Samsung TV that I loved and it worked great for 5 years but watching Blu-Ray movies on a big screen makes all the difference. If you have the space I highly recommend getting this projector! Enjoy and pass the popcorn!!! :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Great IMAX 3D, Aug. 31 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If you love the ocean and 3d than this one is a must to at least view once. The depth and colors look amazing and there's a memorable scene involving a potato cod that you will never forget. The only down side is that it's only about 40 minutes long but a lot of the IMAX 3d films are too short but sweet. :)

Powerful film about regret, isolation, hope and survival. The images, music and cinematography are all excellent. The Blu-Ray looks and sounds terrific and can be used as demo material. Highly Recommended!!

5.0 out of 5 stars "HE AIN'T RETARDED. HE'S MISUNDERSTOOD", July 14 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Very good version of TCM explaining how Leathrerface became a serial killer we all know and fear. He grew up in a demented household raised by the Hewitt family. There's plenty of scares and chills you would expect in this series. R.Lee Ermy is great as the head of the insane hillbillie clan and Jordana Brewster looks even more beautiful in high-def. The Alliance Blu-Ray looks very good and the dts-hdma audio track is excellent!

Highly Recommended!!

5.0 out of 5 stars "I LOVE YOU WILL, BEYOND POETRY", July 13 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is one of the best written films of the past 30 years and it's incredibly romantic and funny as well. Paltrow & Feinnes are terrific together and the supporting cast is excellent as well. Even if your NOT into the classics this film is very entertaining and can be viewed multiple times just for the beautiful dialogue and performances.

The Alliance Blu-Ray looks good even though it's only 1080i but is in the proper OAR 2:35 and the dts-hdma comes in loud and clear. Stephen Warbeck's wonderful score sounds especially good!

Highly Recommended!!

5.0 out of 5 stars "THE REASONS WE GO TO WAR ARE ALWAYS IMPORTANT", June 30 2010
This review is from: Green Zone [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Green Zone is another excellent action thriller from the Bourne team of Damon & Greengrass. This time the backdrop is Iraq and the search for WMD'S which of course never exitsed. The film is intense and insightful from start to finish and really shows you the lies that were fabricated to justify the invasion. The final chase sequence is outstanding and nail biting!

The Blu-Ray is NOT suppose to look like AVATAR. There's a soft grain which is deliberate but remains faithful to the original source. The DTS-HDMA track is also excellent!

If you enjoyed the Bourne films than this is a no brainer and must own!

Highly Recommended!!

5.0 out of 5 stars "FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEDOM", Sept. 5 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
BRAVEHEART is what epic film making is all about. It has everything you could want in a movie, great battle scenes, a tragic love story, beautiful costumes, great scenery and a haunting score by James Horner. Gibson did an unbelievable job directing and acting in this film. The NEW Saphire Blu-Ray is outstanding. The lush landscapes of Ireland and Scotland really stand out in high-def not to mention the lovely Sophie Marceau & Catherine McCormack. The Dolby True-HD track is also very good. If you like old time Hollywood big budget epic film making like Lawrence Of Arabia, El Cid or Ben Hur then this is a must for your Blu collection.

PS. "EVERY MAN DIES. NOT EVERY MAN REALLY LIVES"

I've pre-ordered from amzon.com for $38.99us + $3.50sh. It's still cheaper when converet to canadian since the U.S. dollar is now almost on equal par with ours. Come on amazon.ca lower your prices for tv box sets or I will continue to order from the states!
