A Separation (2011) | Blu-ray Review

Posted on 19 August 2012

Rating: Video: 1/2 Audio: 1/2 Extras: 1/2 Value: 1/2 Review: Video: 1/2 A Separation isn’t a film that flaunts flamboyancy. Its colors are subdued to reflect a more realistic tone. The camerawork is handheld; long takes are used. Because of this, the inherent film grain retained plays to the transfer’s benefit. Textures often look great, and hardly […] Continue Reading

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (2012)

Posted on 30 June 2012

“…this novel approach will not be remembered in the pages of history.” A title like Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter sets up certain expectations. In order to overcome the novelty of its namesake, a movie like this relies heavily on bizarre and unpresidented (get it?) action sequences to justify its existence. Unfortunately, director Timur Bekmambetov’s newest excursion […] Continue Reading
