      Truly awful PQ. It may be as the director intended but it's shockingly bad for UHD. Sound track was pretty good with some epic bass! As for the film I'm not sure what to say. Didn't read any reviews before hand so went in blind. Weird and confusing are two words that come to mind. Certainly wasn't the film I was expecting.

      What an utterly fudgeing weird movie this is. I’d have to question friendship with anyone that buys this and keeps it in their collection

      I'd question being friends with someone that would actually care about such things. ;)

      The wife wants to watch this but it will be a rental at most I feel. I personally do not like DAs films as I find them cold and almost a chore to watch . It's almost like doing homework back in the day and not the least bit entertaining. Almost feels like work watching a DA film :eek:. Yeah I'm shallow.

      My Mrs lasted about 30mins before throwing in the towel. It's very strange.

      I wasn’t remotely interested in watching this film until I read these comments and now it’s gone to the top of my watch list.

      I saw the disc cover and the name and thought it was a period drama :facepalm:

      From what I gather it’s not a nice Sunday afternoon family film?

      It's not shocking at all really, it's just naff, the cast are all fine, Jennifer Lawrence does well with what she's given but it's just crap.

      Yes I understood what's going on but it's just bad.

      Am a fan as well, The Fighter and the wrestler are too of my favourite films, black swan and requiem and are also really good, this isn't though, he's believed his own hype I think.

      Great looking film but I wanted EVERYBODY to die in a chemical fire. It takes a lot of pre-production to do that.

      Had to go to bed early too.

      Horrible.

      I'm glad to hear that the discs are faithful to the grainy visuals and immersive audio...

      One of my favourite cinema going experiences last year

      the aural landscape when watching it in the cinema was amazing and really added to the visual and metaphorical extravaganza.

      just ordered the normal BD so I hope the SQ is as good / immersive as Atmos.

      Just watched this and found it entertaining, unsettling and gripping until the end but.... Anyone care to explain what the film is about? :rotfl:

      I found it weird in a completely unsatisfying way.. but the jewel is supposed to be the apple from the garden of eden, the two sons Cain and Abel.. etc etc.. I did not find it satisfying in the slightest and yet received glowing reviews from the newspapers. I think those involved in the film review business have lost touch with the purpose of their roles and are wallowing in vanity... (in my view :) )

      With what Jennifer Lawrence was going through you would have thought at some point she would just say, sod this I'm off but no, she wanted to stay and endure more.. That was laughable..
