I’d say I was vastly disappointed with Misconduct considering the cast the filmmaker managed to gather but I’ve been reviewing too long to give my hopes up and the studio of late hasn’t had a the best of track records but with the likes of Al Pacino and Anthony Hopkins, even in the late stages of their careers, you’d think the script would’ve been better.
O is a harrowing movie headlined with strong writing but even stronger performances from a young and impressive cast, primarily Mekhi Phifer and Josh Hartnett. The Blu-ray offers up an OK video transfer but the DTS-HD MA more than makes up for it even when not all the features from the DVD were ported over. Given the low MSRP, if you can nab this in the $5-10 range, it’s well worth it.
A Guy Thing has some funny moments and even though the lead is a bit of a douchebag, I still was able to enjoy the film and situations the characters are put in, no matter how inane it tends to be including coincidence upon coincidence. As far as the Blu-ray goes, the video is OK but it is a bit saturated at times and doesn’t look the best while the audio is serviceable though nothing special either.
I must have watched 10 Things I Hate About You 50+ times over the years and it never gets old. And of course with the passing of Heath Ledger it took on another angle seeing a great talent in his first Hollywood role, one that would catapult him into fame, a status he took seriously taking the road less traveled rather than going after the easy dollar doing more teen comedies. And that makes 10 Things even more special.
