    Won't be picking this one up as I never liked this one but I'm really encouraged they are releasing films like this on 4K UHD - lets hope some other 70s films get released...

    I'm definitely buying this but they'll need to get that £39.99 price down as it's just taking the ****.

    That could be the start of a very nasty habit by the highly indebted StudioCanal.

    Never understood the praise for this film, tried to watch it twice and have never finished it, found it utterly dreadful and boring on both occasions.

    The long wedding scene can be difficult to get through if you aren't in the right mood.

    That wedding scene is longer than any wedding I've ever been to.

    The few times i've seen this i always forget just how dam long that wedding scene goes on for. The Vietnam stuff is great though.

    Not sure if i'll day one this or not, think i've only ever watched the BD once in its entirety.

    A masterpiece for me.

    I remember seeing it when I was in my early teens and struggling with it but knowing it was special. Just like Apocalypse Now (also about loss of course).

    For me it was a story about how things just don't work out for most people and the loss of their dreams (and the American Dream specifically).

    Vietnam had nothing to do with the film, it was about a simple thing: people who hunt deer. The Deer Hunter.

    for me this is a complete work of art, on life, love , friendship,work,war,oh and hunting,and how different people cope with all this,it upsets me everytime i watch it,silly me,there are so many fine performances,not forgetting the wonderful John Cazale,long gone now,such an underated actor and apparently a real nice guy too
    day one purchase for me

    Hope there's an impovement in the audio. The DVD version Ilast saw was awful. Never saw it o BD for some reason as like others have said it's a very slow start and wedding scene. Love the Vietnam and classic Russian roulette scenes though. As i've skpped the BD I'll probably get this on 4K.
