The Favourite (Yorgos Lanthimos, UK Blu-ray 2019)

Whatever happened to Merchant Ivory? :D

Another great film from Yorgos Lanthimos -that's 6th in a row (The Killing of a Sacred Deer/The Lobster/Alps/Dogtooth/Kinetta). Absolutely loved all the characters and the film looked beautiful. I always wondered what he'd do if he had LOTS of money and The Favourite looks like it had a wad of cash and talent.

Shame there's no UHD from the lazy Fox or fancy editions (maybe South Korean will cough something up).

No date that I can see for the UK release but the US has March 2019.

Just watched the Oscars:

Olivia Colman was amazing so it was a well deserved Oscar.

I had a feeling she had a great chance .




I lub those Amazon reviewers.
Well at least they did not give 1 star IMDB is worse where there just a mediocre film and someone will give it 1/10 and say the worst film they ever seen.
I have to say I only seen short clips and all I see is Olivia shouting in them.


On IMDB you will see reviews giving 1/10 for ANY film - no matter how great!
I know as I said before I think just give extremes to skew the average score, for instance I saw some giving The Huntsman Winter War 10/10 :eek: and some 1/10 :eek:
Or they only seen one film before and it's better or worse than the one before:D

Lazy arse Fox really pushed the boat out adding that 10 Oscar label!




Shame that's there so little extras (as usual with Fox) although YouTube is bursting with stuff. The film needed much more love on home video with at least a UHD release.

As we're a month behind we'll be getting OSCAR WINNER! on our label! I like that the banner Blu-ray - DVD -Digital sort of ties in with the main artwork but imagine what the ex-employees of EIV would've done :D
