For anyone who hasn't seen this movie, its the ultimate blind buy. Believe the hype! This is a great movie. Day 1 buy for me.

Man, Josh Brolin looks terrible for his age. Tommy Lee Jones looks great though.

Disappointing that the bonus materials are in SD ...

I can't wait to watch this movie again, I'll pick this up when it's out.

I saw the Blu-ray preview on Gone Baby Gone and some scenes looked really crisp and amazing. And other scenes looked a little fuzzy to me. I don't know the technical terms but some of the shadows in the hotel room scenes looked like grayish instead of black and the red light that shone on faces looked a little weird too.

edit: Either way it's an automatic buy for me. Once I finally saw it in theaters I was amazed how great it was, I think I might catch it tonight again as well.

This movie is great and best picture of the year, but too bad There Will Be Blood is best picture of the century!

Of course nobody will notice this until a few years later, like how now everyone says Goodfellas should have one instead of Dances with Wolves.

Anyways, I will definitely be picking this up

When I saw No Country I was immediately convinced that it was the top movie of the year.

Then I saw There Will Be Blood and realized that even with days to go till the end of the year, the best was saved for last.

Blind buy for me, but I've been wanting to see it so bad when it was in the theaters. Hopefully, it lives up to the hype. I'm hoping at least it will be just as good as Gone Baby Gone or Eastern Promises.

No Country > Eastern Promises easily.
