3:10 to Yuma
For years now this has been one of those movies that I *almost* rented about 679 times, but something else always trumped it at the last minute. Finally got around to watching it last night and wow.. I am only halfway through (hate having to stop a film!!) but what a great Bluray to appreciate your home theatre.
While the video quality definitely leaves a little something to be desired by today's standards, the sound mix is incredible. It has a full discrete 7.1 PCM mix and also a compressed 5.1 dolby digital EX mix. I watched with the 7.1 PCM enabled, and out of all the films ive seen that utilize that format (there arent many) this was probably the best implementation of it ive heard. The scene where the natives are firing upon the possee at night..the ricochets of the gunfire made outstanding use of the rear channels, literally giving you 360 degrees of coverage. its a very tasteful mix,
The soundtrack is also incredibly detailed, with a massive soundstage and tons of activity in the surrounds for emphasis.
I will definitely be adding this bluray to my collection, and would recommend it as a rental (at least!) to anyone
Hmmm, interesting. I have a duped copy of the DVD and really liked the movie. Maybe I'll check out the price at the local HMV. Thanks for the suggestion Brad.
great movie, just watched it for the first time this week.
I like Ben Foster as Charlie Prince, the psycho killer guy, he's been in a few movies I've seen lately, Pandorum and Alpha Dog. He was also in 30 Days of Night, one of my all time favorite vampire films
