Default Anyone got the descent or flightplan?

I loved the descent (IMO one of the most underrated films ever), and after reading the review on the transfer im thinking bout picking it up.

Never seen flight plan but again, very high review and heard good things about it.

The Descent wasn't underrated (7.4 on imdb, 84% on rottentomatoes, both are very high for the genre), it's just overlooked.

That said, the transfer on Blu is phenomenal. Definitely worth the upgrade.

The Descent is awesome. If you like horror it's a must own on Blu.

Whats the replay value like? Do the scares ever get old? Ive only seen it once and that was when it first came out.

I love the Descent on Blu but it isn't a movie I go to often. If I were you, I would still pick it up..especially since Blu-ray is lacking in the horror department. The disc does have a pretty good PIP and includes both the unrated and theatrical versions of the movie.

The Descent is an excellent horror flick...and this is a genre that is usually 100% stoopid(like Hostel and Saw) and pointless so that makes it even better.

Flight Plan is an OK watch.... but I wouldnt ever buy it.

The Descent is one of those movies I like showing people (those that come over and have never seen it) so I get a good amount of value out of it.

Oddly enough, I get some good value out of Severance (reg DVD) as well.

Good PQ on descent, but I hated the movie. The first hour was the girls talking and exploring the cave, and the last 30 minutes was the girls dying from the creatures. I thought it was a shitty movie. IMO..

I've seen Flightplan, but on DVD. I can say its a pretty good film, the ending is okay but overall its at least worth watching IMO, I've watched it around 3 times on DVD myself!

Descent - excellent PQ, sound will creep u out with a 7.1 setup and its a very good horror flick.

flightplan - forgot about it 10minutes after watching it, so that should tell you right there.
