great film and another i dont own on blu ray yet
Fantastic film. So glad it's finally getting a steelbook release. There is a lot of potential for great art with this.
i remember really liking a lot of poster artwork around the time it was released, nice minimal simple designs
Blind buyers beware! This one has sent me to sleep a couple of times - not bothering again..

Terence Malick films are very divisive.
I personally cannot get on with Tree of life
Fair enough. It's probably my favourite Malick film if I'm honest, but I know a lot of people can't get on with it.
Might be interested in this, but already have the amaray...still, it's Malick and I love his films. This one is particularly great.
I agree,don't think I made it to the end,was very s...l....o....w

Nature shot - nature shot - more nature shots - OK War stuff for 5 minutes! Thatll wake them up! - nature shot - nature shot - more nature shots - big name actor getting one or two minutes (tops) of dialogue and not to be seen or heard for the rest of the film - nature shot - nature shot
Honestly, might as well get Attenborough to narrate it and call it what is nice - a nicely shot nature documentary with bits of a war film spliced in here and there to keep you awake.
Just my opinion though!
Made this using an unused criterion image...
As Bootyman81 stated, Terrence Malick films can be divisive. I personally enjoyed it more after viewing for a second time and it is now one of my favourite films. The accompanying Hans Zimmer soundtrack is also a cracker.
Unfortunately I'm not very keen on this artwork for the steelbook, although it may look nicer in hand. Would have preferred a design that actually had a thin red line in it somewhere.
Absolutely love this film - amazing battle scenes, real incredible intensity to them and an absolute vein burstingly superb turn from Nick Nolte. This film works for me, I like the fact that there are lulls in the proceedings and it does get me thinking. Alright it's nowhere near as good as the book but it's still a fabulous piece of cinema for me.
Spot gloss the title, shadows and red bullets & it could look very classy
Love the director's work but great another to choose from... trying to decide between the Criterion, French digibook and now a steelbook. So hard.
Haha you always seek out Malick mentions don't you Jim! It'd be difficult not to have shots of nature in a film set in (essentially) paradise. I reckon you secretly love his films and are trying to prove to everyone that you don't...it's okay you can admit it...
Jokes aside, it's a spectacular film - no-one else could've really made an existentialist war film like this. Sure it takes more of a pacifist/humanist stance on the war debate but it does show the heroism and dedication of men who fight in wars, as well as fear, pride and arrogance that often goes with it.
A shame the artwork is minimalist to a fault...it's just a bit boring and looks like it was knocked up on Illustrator in 10 or 15 minutes. I'll be passing on most of these steelbooks except perhaps Vanishing Point which isn't available on amaray in the UK.
No honestly I have tried to watch The Thin Red Line and don't get on with it at all. I wont post anything more in this thread though because I wouldn't like it if someone came into say a Blade Runner thread and started trashing my favourite film! Each to their own and all that.
I watched Badlands again not long ago and that's still my favourite Malick film (which isn't saying much )
