RE: Captain Phillips and Gravity are rubbish!

Watched Gravity with the wife last weekend. Both of us very underwhelmed and disappointed with it.

Anyone else seen them what do you think?  And they picked up awards!  Total garbage is my view.

I haven't read through the whole thread again Gel, but I think I said previously that Captain Phllips was the Disc of the Month in the previous (number 232, April 2014) issue of Home Cinema choice magazine, which I know you bought. Captain Philps had a full-page review. In the current (233, May 2014) issue, which will be widely on sale, there is a two-page review of Gravity 3D, which is also voted Disc of the Month. They say that more so than even Avatar, Gravity is a film that simply demands to be seen in 3D. They are very, very complimentary about the video and audio quality. For instance, the video assessment includes "Image depth, dimensionalily and fine detailing are all absolutely first-rate. Excellent colour saturation, contrast and black levels round out a transfer that undoubtedly sits at the pinnacle of what 3D Blu-ray is capable of."

I will be buying the 3D version myself within a week.

So Gel, since you disagree so stongly with two of their recent rave reviews, I guess you won't be applying for the job of film reviewer at HCC! :

Nope, I won't.  I don't do 3D either, it gives me headaches, but I do like it at the cinema.  Both films were poor though considering the hype.
