2nd viewing, 1st time on the small screen at home.
Like I figured, the exterior space shots of Elysium did lose some of its marvel on the small screen but still look gorgeous.
Again, Neill Blomkamp and his crew pulled off another feat..making you feel you're watching a film with at least 3 times the budget from the actual one.
My opinion of the film hasn't changed since viewing it in cinema..it is a lesser film than District 9.
Disappointing and shallow excuse for a thriller.
Unfortunately, Harrison Ford's part could not make this film any less boring.
If you are going to take the route of thrillers based on tech companies, infiltrating and spy stuff, please consider watching Peter Howitt's Antitrust.
It's a much better story, has proper execution and actually makes for an interesting film.
What a fantastic collaboration between James Cameron for writing this impressive 90's futuristic story and the screenplay and Kathryn Bigelow for directing this fantastic thrill ride! The film's got great leading performances from Ralph Fiennes as Lenny Nero, Juliette Lewis and Angela Bassett. The supporting cast is impressive too with solid performances across the board. The action sequences are simply fantastic, Kathryn Bigelow really shines in that department. This was my 1st viewing of Strange Days and expect to revisit this great film once either the US or UK blu-ray is released. Highly recommended!
Ridley Scott's return to the sci-fi genre needs to go a long way before getting to the quality of the Alien films. Credit where credit is due though, damn if this is not 1 of the best looking and sounding blu-ray discs of 2012, it's just so stunning to look at and listen to! This is my 3rd viewing of Prometheus and I'm picking up more on the little details which, to me, do show there are more answers coming in the upcoming sequel which is already in the works. We'll see what 2014 will bring us!
