Default 'Marine' - High-Def Digest Review

The WWE goes high-def with this week's Blu-ray release of 'Marine.' According to Peter, both the film itself and its Blu-ray transfer are pretty atrocious, but it does boast a knock-the-shoes-off-your feet soundtrack...

Is it the transfer that's atrocious or is it the source that's done this way with the post-processing? If this is how it was intended to look, it doesn't make sense to say that transfer is atrocious. If it's accurately reflecting what the original presentation was, that's one thing. But it's not part of the actual video quality in terms of the transfer.

Default Re: Blu-Ray Unrated?

Does this Blu-Ray include the unrated version that was released on SD last month?

I agree with the movie part of the review. I cant comment on anything else as I havent picked this up on Blu Ray, yet. This movie is exactly what youre expecting...and, Im not so sure thats a bad thing...its actually a pretty fun ride. My biggest complaint is the overuse of action movie cliches. You know that scene in every action movie...where it goes into slow motion, and your hero is running away from a building about to blow up? Then, it blows up, and as theyre jumping the fire and such blows over their head? Well...this movie is so fond of that sequence...John Cena escaped from 3 exploding buildings...and one exploding car (If I remember correctly.) Even with that, youve gotta at least give this movie a rent, that is, if you enjoy action flicks.

here is the actual article i saw

Quote:
WWE Studios is working on "The Marine 2". The original film starred John Cena and is WWE's highest seller to date. The next installment will not feature Cena.

On a related note, John Cena will star in "12 Rounds", which is scheduled to release on March 12, 2009. Cena will play a New Orleans police detective whose girlfriend is kidnapped.
im suprised wwe is even staying in the film business every film has been terrible for the most part except the rock films they co produced on, and the condemned which i thought was at least average
